The player will be the owner of a café that Pokémon visit, where they will work alongside Pokémon to prepare drinks and dishes for Pokémon customers by completing puzzles. Pokémon on the café’s staff have special Café Skills that can be used to help complete puzzles. Once a puzzle is completed, the player can serve an order to a customer. The player can increase their friendship levels with Pokémon by serving them delicious drinks and dishes.

Pokémon Smile

With Pokémon Smile, Pokémon continues to expand its app offerings for younger children by incorporating the world of Pokémon into the everyday task of brushing your teeth. The app is a unique new mobile experience for the Pokémon brand that makes brushing your teeth a fun activity and encourages kids to develop good brushing habits. Pokémon Smile is available for download beginning today at no cost in the App Store and on Google Play.

Pokémon Smile uses a mobile device’s camera to observe the player’s toothbrushing activity. If the player skillfully brushes their teeth, they can defeat cavity-causing bacteria depicted in the game and then catch Pokémon. The game will guide the user through the toothbrushing process, so each playthrough can help them brush all areas in their mouth.

Parents can receive notifications from Pokémon Smile at up to three set times per day that remind them it’s time for kids to brush their teeth. They can also set the duration of each toothbrushing session to be between one and three minutes, based on the varying needs of children of different ages. The app is filled with elements to encourage the player to continue playing the game with the intent of slowly building a habit of brushing their teeth. Players will want to keep coming back to catch over one hundred species of Pokémon in Pokémon Smile and fill out their in-app Pokédex. They can also collect fun in-app decorative headwear to display on themselves virtually as they brush their teeth.

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced Detective Pikachu, a new video game scheduled to release exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems both digitally and at retail on March 23rd, 2018. It was originally released in Japan on February 3rd, 2016, which will be over two years later when it is released worldwide.

DETECTIVE PIKACHU COMING SOON TO NINTENDO 3DS

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced Detective Pikachu, a new video game scheduled to release exclusively on the Nintendo 3DSTM family of systems both digitally and at retail on 23 March 2018. An action-adventure title, Detective Pikachu finds the hero of the title – a unique Pikachu in the Pokémon world – partnering with Tim Goodman and searching for evidence and clues to solve a series of cases, whilst also investigating the disappearance of Tim’s father, Harry Goodman.

Detective Pikachu Detective Pikachu

When he arrives in Ryme City looking for his missing father, little does Tim know he would meet a Pikachu, but more amazingly a Pikachu who he could communicate with. There’s more to this Pikachu than a detective hat – he’s one lovably gruff, tough-talking sleuth, with a taste for good coffee.

Detective Pikachu

This Pikachu claims that he worked with Tim’s father, and the two pair up to discover his whereabouts. Together, Tim and Detective Pikachu will encounter a number of mysteries in Ryme City and will need to talk to witnesses and gather their testimony in order to discover the truth. Cases that would be impossible for Tim to solve alone can be cracked with the help of this Pikachu, because he is able to obtain vital clues and information from other Pokémon.

Detective Pikachu includes all the chapters of the 2016 Japan-exclusive Nintendo eShop release, Detective Pikachu – Birth of a New Duo, but adds further content that completes the story. The game features new locations to explore, as well as a colourful cast of both Pokémon and human characters.

For those players who are new to sleuthing and may need some help in uncovering the evidence, Detective Pikachu features an Easy Mode, where the title character will provide handy hints on what to do or where to go next.

A special Detective Pikachu amiibo is also planned for when the game launches. It’s larger than a regular amiibo, and it allows players to view all the Pika Prompts (short video clips) from chapters they have completed, including ones they missed finding earlier. These clips feature Pikachu’s quips and antics – and may even contain a hint.

After the shoot, players can decorate the photos with cool frames and over 100 different stickers to create the perfect photo.

A Special Item for Pokémon Bank Subscribers

Pokémon Bank has been updated! And right now, all Pokémon Bank users can receive a Z-Crystal for Mew.

Pokémon Bank has undergone major updates and now works with Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, making it easy to transfer Pokémon from multiple copies of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon—including the downloadable versions—to a single game! You can also use it to transfer Pokémon you've caught in the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow into your Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game. Pokémon from Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y can also be brought into Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon in the same way.

To celebrate this update, all Pokémon Bank subscribers can get a Mewnium Z, the Z-Crystal that only Mew can use. When you launch the new Pokémon Bank and receive the gift, a new Wonder Card will appear in your Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game. You can use the Mystery Gift function to claim your Mewnium Z.

Note that this gift is for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon players only. It is not available in Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Also, you can get only one Mewnium Z, even if you use Pokémon Bank with multiple Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games. If you have Pokémon Bank, be sure to use the service by October 2, 2017, to get your Mewnium Z.

POKÉMON BANK UPDATE NOW LIVE: NEW FEATURES AND COMPATIBILITY WITH POKÉMON SUN AND POKÉMON MOON ADDED!

Pokémon Bank players can now receive a Mewnium Z and transfer their Pokémon from Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue and Pokémon Yellow to their copy of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced today details for the latest big Pokémon Bank update.

Pokémon Bank, the online service which enables players to withdraw and deposit to and from various Pokémon titles, has received a new update today making it compatible with the latest games Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon*. This means that it is now possible to bring Pokémon that do not natively appear in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon into the games so they can join you in battles and adventures.

This highly anticipated update even allows players to transfer their Pokémon from the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console games Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue and Pokémon Yellow into Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Previously hidden Pokémon parameters from these Virtual Console games like Abilities, Natures, Sp. Atk and Sp. Def will become visible after sending them over to Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. All Pokémon sent this way will have some great individual strengths.

Two new features have been added to the Pokémon Bank in the update, the Pokédex and adventure records. The Pokédex feature will allow players to see information about Pokémon registered in each of the Pokémon series games that have been connected to Pokémon Bank in the National Pokédex. All information for Pokémon registered from past titles will now be available all in one place. The other new feature, Adventure Records, will allow players to look back on their adventures in the Pokémon series. Figures and stats like the number of Pokémon caught or the number of wild Pokémon encountered will be accessible from the saved data from each players previous Pokémon series games registered to Pokémon Bank.

When players deposit Pokémon into Pokémon Bank, they can receive Poké Miles relative to the number of Pokémon they deposit and how long they are deposited for. These Poké Miles can be received as Battle Points, which can be exchanged in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon for various items. This means that players who have already got many Pokémon deposited in their Pokémon Bank accounts from previous games may find themselves getting a great number of Poké Miles!

Finally, players who access Pokémon Bank during 25 Jan – 2 October 2017 will be able to claim a limited-time special Mewnium Z, the Z-Crystal for the Mythical Pokémon Mew, which cannot be obtained through normal gameplay**. By giving Mewnium Z to a Mew which knows the move Psychic, it will be able to use the powerful Z-Move Genesis Supernova.

The Pokémon Sun and Moon Version 1.1 patch is now available to download from the Nintendo eShop. Nintendo's official English patch notes only list that "Adjustments have been made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience." The Japanese Nintendo support page though lists a few specific changes that this patch includes.

ImageImage

Pokémon Sun and Moon Version 1.1 Patch Notes

  • Fixes a problem with the Memento and Parting Shot moves that caused them to not work properly.
  • Fixes a issue with Rocky Helmet which caused the wrong player to be declared the winner when the opponent knocks out when the player is also knocked out.
  • Fixes a problem which caused certain Pokémon to learn a move when evolving.
  • Additionally, it fixed some problems so that players can play the games move comfortably.

Rocky Helmet Item / Memento and Parting Shot Moves Detailed info on bugs from Version 1.0

Rocky Helmet Item: If the holder of Rocky Helmet takes damage, the attacker will also be damaged upon contact. Normally, in a situation where there are only two Pokémon remaining on the battlefield and one of them is knocked out by an attack and the attacker is also knocked out from the damage inflicted by Rocky Helmet, the player with the Pokémon that was holding the Rocky Helmet would lose the battle. For now, the player with the Pokémon holding Rocky Helmet will win the battle.

Memento and Parting Shot Moves: We've discovered a bug that affects the moves Memento and Parting Shot during online battles using Battle Spot. While we fix this bug, Memento and Parting Shot will be prohibited in Free Battles, Rating Battles, and Online Competitions in Battle Spot. If any of the Pokémon in your Battle Team has either of these moves, you won't be able to start a battle.

FIRST-PARTNER POKÉMON EVOLUTIONS, A SPECIAL DEMO VERSION AND MORE ANNOUNCED FOR POKÉMON SUN AND POKÉMON MOON!

New Pokémon, gameplay features, a Special Demo Version and Mega Evolution details revealed for upcoming Pokémon games.
The Pokémon Company International showcased a bunch of new information for the latest games in the Pokémon franchise, Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, coming to Europe on 23 November and available exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

The evolved forms of the three first-partner Pokémon, Dartrix, Torracat and Brionne, were unveiled:

Dartrix Torracat Brionne
Thumbnail Thumbnail Thumbnail
Type: Grass-Flying Type: Fire Type: Water
The Blade Quill Pokémon Dartrix evolves from Rowlet. Dartrix attacks by throwing its knife-edged feathers, and it possesses extremely sharp senses. This Pokémon can detect opponents behind it and can throw feathers to strike them without even seeing them. This Pokémon cares a great deal about its appearance, grooming its feathers in every spare moment it has. The Fire Cat Pokémon Torracat evolves from Litten. This Pokémon produces flames for its attacks from a bell-like sac attached at the base of its throat. Torracat has a great love for battle and will attack relentlessly. Its mane can sense what is going on around it, even in the dark, and is able to detect the presence of hidden enemies. The Pop Star Pokémon Brionne evolves from Popplio. Brionne can dance in perfect time with others and is always cheery and positive. A very hard worker, Brionne learns dances by imitating other members of its colony and can sometimes even learn dances from humans. As this Pokémon dances, it creates balloons and slaps them into its target, making them explode and deal damage to its opponents.

In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, communication features are gathered together in the new Festival Plaza. Players will be able to see other people playing near them, or other players that are connected to the internet to battle or trade. By talking to people and listening to their requests in Festival Plaza, players can receive Festival Coins. There are cool stores to spend Festival Coins in, such as dye houses, goody shops (where rare items are sold) and even bouncy castles for Pokémon to train in. As players gather more Festival Coins, their Festival Plaza will rank up, yielding rewards and making more activities available. Players will even gain the ability to host missions, where multiple players can work together to try to achieve certain goals.

Another new feature that was announced was Poké Pelago. In Poké Pelago, Pokémon that are stored in a PC Box can explore a variety of isles, play on athletic equipment and enjoy other fun activities. If players send many Pokémon to Poké Pelago, they can develop more facilities on the isles and also develop new kinds of isles. As these isles are developed and increase in number, they will allow players to obtain items and even raise Pokémon.

Mega Evolution is making a return as well. Pokémon that were able to Mega Evolve in previous Pokémon games will also be able to Mega Evolve in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. The Mega Stones for Pokémon with the capability to Mega Evolve that appear in the Alola region may be received from characters in the game or obtained from special shops.

The Pokémon Global Link will be updated for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon and will be available from the games’ launch date. The updated Pokémon Global Link site will have new features, including new online competitions, global missions and more. More information and features on the upcoming site can be found here.

The Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon Special Demo Version was also unveiled and will be available to download directly from Nintendo eShop or via the official Nintendo website starting from 18 October. The Special Demo Version introduces players to the Alola region and features Ash-Greninja, the Pokémon that appears alongside the hero Ash in the animated TV series Pokémon the Series: XYZ. Players will be able to transfer their Ash-Greninja from the Special Demo Version to their full version of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon once the game launches on 23 November.
