Trying to catch up on the news that was available a few days back, but my busy schedule hindered my time quite a bit…
A few days ago, TPCi had released the official trailer for the 17th movie: “Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction.” A few changes that have been made from the Japanese version included the changing of the name Dialand and the diamond. Dialand will be known as Diamond Domain and the diamond will be known as the Heart Diamond.
You can watch the trailer at the bottom of this post.
Nintendo Direct had premiered two days ago and focused on showcasing the game “Super Smash Bros.” This is a succeeding game to the popular Wii game “Super Smash Bros. Brawl.” Players will be able to choose to play from three individual Pokemon: Charizard, Greninja, and Lucario.
Both Charizard and Lucario have the ability to mega evolve into Mega Charizard X and Mega Lucario respectively. It was also announced that Lucario will be much more powerful than it was in SSBB, and to be able to mega evolve, Lucario and Charizard will need to be able to capture the Smash Ball.
Greninja knows the following moves: Water Shuriken, Substitute, and Tongue Attack (not an official name, but decided to go with that since it uses its tongue to attack. :P)
In addition to those three Pokemon, the Master Ball will be available as a usable item and will house rare and legendary Pokemon, while the Pokeball will provide the following: Arceus, Electrode, Entei, Fennekin, Gogoat, Keldeo, Kyurem, Meloetta, Meowth, Victini, and Xerneas.
The Japanese channel for the game has released a short video showcasing the Pokemon and other playable characters. Video is posted below.
