Despite being one of the biggest franchises around, Pokémon ain’t exactly known for releasing collector’s editions of their various games. What you generally get, is a game, a box and a manual if you’re lucky. And I’m fine with that. And I’m also more than fine with falling off the wagon, caving in and buying this special edition of the upcoming Ruby and Sapphire remakes.

Because nobody asked for it! If there’s one game that fans have been asking for, it’s a proper console version of Pokémon, bringing open world catch ‘em all gameplay to a larger screen. That ain’t happening. Instead, you’re going to get a chance to properly battle with your Pokémon in Pokkén Tournament.

I’ve never been able to get into DOTA. It’s not the highly complex gameplay, the frequent attacks on my genitals or the fact that my clumsy penguin-hands can barely hit an insane amount of keys every minute in comparison to the players around me that make me avoid the game. It’s that I just find it ridiculously boring. Still, this particular mod for the game may have my attention.

You have a  team of legendary Pokémon, all maxed out and with ludicrous EV stats? Ha! I scoff at your team! I scoff to the max! For you see, I have a team of common Pokémon in my team…who all happen to be shiny. As far as bragging rights go, shiny Pokémon earn players the most, as the buggers are ridiculously hard to encounter. Hell, in the last three years, I’ve only managed to catch one of them. With the upcoming Pokémon remakes however, expect to get a shiny badass at launch.

Hey, before we close out Friday, I need to speak with you guys. As a Jigglypuff Witness, I want to ask you if you’ve accepted the teachings of Professor Oak into your life, and got Wigglytuff with it? Ignore all this nonsense about Mega-Evolution! Only the mighty Arceus is fit to evolve certain Pokémon, and they most certainly aren’t mega! Join the Jigglypuff Witnesses today!

You know how awful it was when twitch played Pokemon? It took them ages, spawned a bunch of memes and was finally completed. Now, there's a new player in the seemingly random approach to Pokemon, and it makes us not want to live on this planet anymore.

Yo yo yo son! I see you got a Pokémon there that is about to evolve. But would you like to see it mega-evolve? I gots a couple of Pokémon that might interest you then. I has a Mega-Garchomp, a Mega-Scizor, a Mega-Charizard. I even have a Mega-Chansey, which isn’t a regular Chansey that I’ve been inflating with a bicycle pump! What’s that? You want something more Ruby/Sapphire flavoured? I can hook you up.

Pokémon is one of those cultural phenomena  that you either get, or you don’t. Or maybe you’re like me – and you got it when you were younger, but now think the entire thing is a bit of a farce. I embraced having 151 of the critters; now there are over 600 of the bloody things to try and collect. If you fall in to the former category, this is probably for you.

More like Mega-Gross, am I right? While that term is usually used to describe my laundry basket on a Saturday morning, it looks like Mega-Evolutions are indeed making a splash attack in the Pokémon remakes of Ruby and Sapphire. Hit the jump to see what the heavy metal Pokémon Metagross looks like with some added Darwinism.

We were chatting the other day about how October has an insane amount of high profile games coming out. I honestly have no idea how we’re going to even review them all. But we would most certainly try. And then I remembered. We had forgotten about Pokémon. The handheld behemoth of an adventure series that can take easily 20 hours to finish properly for a review. I’m already crying. But at least I’ll have a ‘secret base’ when the game arrives.

Last year’s Pokémon X and Y shook things up a bit in the battle department with Mega-Evolutions. Tremendous boosts of power that could be activated during a fight, the game had many a player yelling out “OVER 9000”. But that was last year. Say hello to the in-season precursor of that system, Primal Reversion.
