No matter what game you have, there’ll be some dick waiting on the other side of the world who’ll want to make your experience of said title that little bit less fun. And when it comes to Pokémon X and Y, I may just be that ass-jerk who does such things.
I don’t know why it is people insist on cheating in online games and ruining it for everybody else, but it’s a thing that’s most certainly quite prevalent. Just about any online, competitive multiplayer game is subject to cheaters – even 3D ones like Pokémon X&Y. How in the hell are people cheating in 3DS games?
There’s a ton of new pocket monsters to catch in Pokémon X and Y. Sylveon is a cool new addition (And my prettiest Pokémon, oh yes), while there are a few weaker debuts as usual (A bunch of keys? Really Game Freak?). But none of them are as fantastically creepy, as Espurr.
If there’s one thing that’s missing from Pokémon X and Y, it’s a trio of themed legendries. I’m not talking about cover stars such as Xerneas and Yveltal, but rather a group of pocket monsters such as the legendary dogs, birds or elf trios. But it looks like X and Y are getting their mythical group after all. Which makes me glad that I hung onto my master ball.
With Pokémon X and Y tearing up the charts, the time to release something different is once again upon us. We’ve seen plenty of Pokémon spin-offs in the past such as Mystery Dungeon, Colosseum and a game where you literally had to just take photos of the critters. But the next game will have you solving poké-crimes instead.
Look at any big game today, and you’ll notice that it has something attached to it like a conjoined foetus twin: DLC. Sometimes, that extra bit of DNA can be cut off, stuck in a jar and marvelled at. Other times, it’s better to forget about it and keep it as a dirty family secret. Pokémon however, doesn’t have to worry about any scarring on the side of that popular franchise.
When you catch a Pokémon, it’s a joy to raise the little fella and make him or her stronger. It’s even more of a joy however, to see it slap the theories of Charles Darwin in the face and evolve into a bruiser. Pokémon X and Y has plenty of new critters. Here’s how to level them up.
Growing up, it's hard to have not heard of Pokemon. Whether you watched the cartoon, traded the Tazos at school or actually played the game, Pokemon has proven to be a heavyweight game series. Not much has changed, and if you've arrived looking for a fresh new Pokemon experience, then you've come to the wrong franchise. And I'm down with that.
I’m dozens of hours into Pokemon X and Y now, and I’m digging the new mega-evolution aspect of the game. And not just because I shout “OVER 9000” every time I do one. Want to assemble an army of Darwin abominations for yourself? Here’s a handy guide on the locations of the mega-evolution stones.
Who would have thought that a game featuring a yellow electric rat could do so well? Nintendo launched Pokemon X and Y worldwide on Saturday, a first for the franchise, and they cleaned up pretty well - shifting plenty of units across the world.
The latest Pokémon game is out, and if you’re anything like me, you’ve been playing that game non-stop since Saturday while refusing to wear pants. If you’re not like me, well good for you because that means that your soul can be saved. Even though you’ll ascend to a higher plane of existence without a lot of Pokémon knowledge. Lets fix that.
Tomorrow just may be the greatest day of my life, next to that time I found half a complete wedding cake sitting in a bin one hot summer day. Pokémon X and Y is finally out tomorrow, and it’s bringing with a new 3D perspective. It took a lot of time and effort to make that game. In fact, each Pokémon needed around 3-6 months to be rendered in all those 3D pixels.
Pretty much all the cool pocket monsters in Pokémon X and Y are getting mega-evolutions. One Pokémon that isn’t bitch-slapping Darwinian theories though? Series mascot Pikachu. Or is it?
You’ve got decisions to make in life. Important ones. Hard choices. But nothing will ever be as crucial as choosing your starter Pokémon. Normally I tell the professor in charge to shut up and hand me a fire-type. But I’ve got different ideas for this iteration of Pokémon.
