Pokemon News Issue #94


Welcome back to Pokemon News. Yes I know, it’s April Fool’s Day, where we all go on the Internet and not believe a single thing that is said on it. Rest assured that this isn’t going to happen here. Everything in this issue is 100% accurate. So with out further ado, let’s begin.

In Sun and Moon news, this coming Sunday, the Japanese variety show “Gathering at the Pokémon House” will have series Director Junichi Masuda, battle director Shigeki Morimoto, and Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire game director Shigeru Ohmori on for an interview and discussion for the upcoming “Pokemon Sun and Moon” games, where not only the first details about the game will be revealed, but the first ever gameplay footage will be unveiled to the public. I’m not sure if I should report on it as soon as it is made public in one of my breaking news issues, but we’ll just have to see what information is revealed.

In distribution news, the third mythical Pokemon of the year long 20th anniversary event is now available to download. Jirachi can be received via the mystery gift option via Internet connection. So go get your’s before time runs out and you have to wait another 1,000 years for Jirachi to show back up.

In virtual console news, “Pokemon Snap” will be available to purchase on the Wii U sometime next week in Japan before seeing a western release. It is unclear whether or not the game will be modified to fit the motion controls on the Wii U, but we will know soon.

In Pokemon GO news, the localized beta for the upcoming mobile game “Pokemon GO” has begun in Japan, but information about the beta itself is rather lacking, due to the embargo that has been put on the beta. Any user that discloses information about the beta will be removed from the program. And with how much hype is built around the game, not many people want to lose their privilege to play the game. All that is known about the beta is that players start with 20 Pokeballs and can catch a total of 500 Pokemon. Whether that means there are 500 different kinds of Pokemon to catch is currently Unown.

And that is it for Pokemon News. Like I said before, all this information is true. So do believe everything that is written down in this issue. And with that, I will see you guys in the next issue.
