Solitaire Meets Horse Racing in Pocket Card Jockey

Posted on March 7, 2016 by Jason Nason

I’m a sucker for neat little niche games, and have always enjoyed card games. So when Nintendo tossed out the news that Pocket Card Jockey was coming to North America, I had a huge smile on my face.

The game has been developed by Game Freak, a name you should know if you’ve played any Pokémon game ever. They’re only the developers of those games. Since developing the first Pokémon game they’ve been behind every game in the main series since then, including upcoming Sun and Moon.

Pocket Card Jockey was released in Japan as a mobile game which has since been retired. It was released for the Nintendo 3DS in the Japanese eShop on July 31st, 2013! We’re just getting it now and I’m actually pretty excited.

Pokémon X and Y Available To Capture This Saturday

Posted on October 11, 2013 by Les Major

The latest Pokémon adventure is about to be released in just one day! Fans have seen over the previous months just how amazing this 3DS generation of Pokémon looks. Personally, they had me there! Combat looks amazing, wandering the world is beautiful, but yet there’s even more! Mega Evolutions which seem to take place with a special device for a limited time in combat after your Pokémon has reached level 100. It sounds like not all Pokémon have mega evolutions, but those that do look awesome!Read More


Mega Evolutions Coming To Pokémon X and Y

Posted on September 4, 2013 by Les Major

Much of this could be considered to be spoilers if you’re looking to learn about all this content in game. However, if you are holding out till the October 12th release date, you’ve probably run screaming from any website proclaiming news of Mega Evolutions so far anyway.

Speculation of a MewThree Pokémon ran rampant earlier this year and recently was revealed to be a new concept in the game series. It seems when a Pokémon reaches level 100 now they can Mega Evolve in battle into a new form. That’s not all though, these evolutions only take place in battle and when the Pokémon in question is holding their specific mega stone. After battle, Pokémon revert back to their regular form.

Announced today, the original three starter Pokémon from Generation one are even getting Mega Evolutions! Check out the video after the break for the trailer showing off Venusaur, Blastoise, and Charizard’s mega evolutions. As you’ll see in the video too, it looks like gamers may be getting a second starter Pokémon like choice in X and Y.Read More


Newest Pokemon From X & Y Looks An Awful Lot Like Mewtwo

Posted on April 7, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Over the weekend Nintendo unveiled a brand new pokemon for the upcoming Pokemon X & Y, during their weekly “Pokemon Smash” T.V series. This little fella looks an awfully lot like fan favorite Mewtwo, whom of course was one of the last legendary from the original set of 151 Pokemon Unfortunately this newly unveiled monster doesn’t have a name just yet, in fact official details out side of the recently released art work and trailers are scant.

This is pure speculation but I believe Nintendo could take one or two routes with this: I believe that regardless of origin, this monster will be a legendary. In terms of its origin I think that it will be either a new form of MewTwo, similar to the way that Deoxys and Shaman can take multiple forms depending on circumstance, so it would have the same type and ID number as its base form, or it will be a new clone of the original Mew in the vein of MewTwo – meaning that is is a human creation.

Check out the full artwork and brief gameplay trailer released by Nintendo after the jump.Read More
