Pokémon of the Week - Golem

In The Pokémon of the Week Department

Who's That Pokémon

Once again going into the 4th Generation Competitive Battling strategies, we are covering our one-hundred & fifty-first Pokémon. Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced within the first generation. This Pokémon is only obtainable by trading its pre-evolution. It sheds its hide once a year. Its boulderlike body is so tough, even dynamite can't harm it. It is said to live in volcanic craters on mountain peaks. Once a year, it sheds its hide and grows larger. The shed hide crumbles and returns to the soil. So here it is, the one hundred & fifty-first featured Pokémon, Golem.

This trailer detailled many things we already know about but also showed several minutes of footage. I have screencapped all the notable details from this trailer and added the screencaps to our pre-release picture page. Very few new game details were included, other than the following:

  • In multiplayer mode, you and the people you are with, challenge Pokémon simultaneously and are able to send numerous simultaneous assists in at once to allow for quicker capture
  • The trailer also showed a part of a special mission which has you chasing a Manaphy Egg underwater. It is unknown if you will be able to transfer this Egg to your other games, but based on the past two games containing a sendable Manaphy Egg, and the hint in the trailer, it is likely. We'll bring more details on this mission, including the dates it is available, as it comes

Pokémon HeartGold & SoulSilver - Possible Upcoming US Events

I have recently been made aware of the two upcoming in-store events in the United States for your Diamond, Pearl & Platinum games. These events, as many of you would have guessed include the Pikachu Coloured Pichu. According to what I have heard, this Pikachu Coloured Pichu event will be given away at the end of this month. This Pichu, when transferred to HeartGold/SoulSilver will allow you access to the special Spiky-eared Pichu in Ilex Forest. Click the picture for more details on this in-game event.
In addition to this, the special Jirachi is also said to be given away instore at the end of February. This Jirachi, when sent to HeartGold/SoulSilver will unlock the special Edge of the Nights Sky PokéWalker Course. It is unknown if the Jirachi will also be given over WiFi like it was in Japan.
Although I trust the person who told me this, it is not confirmed and it's possible that any of the details could change at any time.

Pokémon Sunday's "Reveal"

I have been sent several e-mails regarding this. Last night, Pokémon Sunday showed in their trailer for next week's episode that they're going to reveal something in that episode by covering a board with a giant question. As such, the community has jumped up with many people saying that this is confirmed to be a fifth generation Pokémon. While this is possible, people seem to forget that Pokémon Sunday cover many things in their trailers, such as a Magikarp back in May last year so it's best not to jump to conclusions as anything could be under the question mark, especially as it's being shown in the Game Arena segment of the show indicating the reveal is games related. Rest assured, whenever some true news comes out, you'll find it here as soon as it comes so keep checking back.

When exposed to the moon's aura, the rings on its body glow faintly and it gains a mysterious power. So here it is, the one hundred & fourty-eigth featured Pokémon, Umbreon.

New Pokémon/Pokémon Form Revealed

In The Pokémon Department

Possible New Pokémon?

With thanks to PkmnCollectors, we have been made aware of a new bit of merchandise that is set to be released in conjunction with the upcoming movie in Japan; Phantom Champion Z. This specific piece of merchandise, PokéBall items that project Pokémon images, focus on many main Pokémon within the movie but two of these items are not yet revealed.
In previous years, the Pokémon blanked out traditionally ended up being the new secret legendary, or a new Pokémon form such as Giratina's Origin Forme. It is possible that these could be either the first known 5th Generation Pokémon or these could be new forms of Pokémon in a similar manner to the Spiky-eared Pichu last year. It is also highly possible that this could just be two Pokémon we already have such as Lugia & Ho-Oh or any other Pokémon set to feature in the movie, but it is still worth knowing but remember it is not confirmed. It is unknown when this will be revealed, perhaps more hints in CoroCoro next week, but we'll get new information to you as soon as possible.
