Who's That Pokémon

Today marks the one-hundred & twenty-second entry into the Generation VI competitive field with a Kanto Pokémon. These entries are created by the visitors for the visitors and then compiled by our writers Miror, Archangel, Ragnarok, Psynergy, KillerDraco & UR2L8. To get involved, Click here for the discussion forum
Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the first generation. When its electricity builds, its muscles are stimulated, and it becomes more aggressive than usual. It can loose 100,000-volt bursts of electricity, instantly downing foes several times its size. If the electrical sacs become excessively charged, Raichu plants its tail in the ground and discharges. Scorched patches of ground will be found near this Pokémon's nest. This Pokémon exudes a weak electrical charge from all over its body that makes it take on a slight glow in darkness. Raichu plants its tail in the ground to discharge electricity. So, here it is, the one-hundred & twenty-second entry, Raichu & Pikachu.

Some new information has been released about the upcoming title, Pokkén Tournament. First, three new sets of Support Pokémon have been revealed. These are Cubone & Diglett, Magneton & Quagsire and Espeon & Umbreon. In addition to this, several new images have been added to our pre-release screenshot section
Edit @ 03:16: The Ferrum League is a feature exclusive to the Wii U version. Beating stages adds more support Pokemon and battle areas. There are four ranks to this league: Green League, Blue League, Red League & Chrome League. It takes place in the Ferrum region. In this region, Resonance Stones link people and their Pokémon. In this game, players can customise their player character's gender, skin colour, hair and so forth.
There are various trainers you will encounter. Nia helps players navigate the world, and she chose Weavile. There are also trainers who exist only in the Wii U version who are tough to beat. Travis with his Garchomp, Keith with his Suicune and Erin with her Braixen
Edit @ 03:25: New modes have been revealed. Practice Mode is where you get to test your skills with no time limit or health. Free Training allows you to train freely. Combo Dojo will teach you various combos for the Pokémon. There's also the My Town mode where you can alter your character's appearance and clothing by spending the in-game currency, PokéGold
For the Support Pokémon, Cubone uses Bonemerang which is a quick long range attack that hits multiple times and brings opponents to you. Diglett uses Dig which makes it easy to land combos when the opponent has been hit. Magneton uses Tri Attack which aims upward. It lowers opponents' Speed & Attack and is good against jumping opponents. Quagsire uses Mud Bomb. It is effective on players on the ground and damages even if guarded against. Espeon uses Morning Sun which removes status conditions as well as healing Hit Points. The less time on the clock, the more it raises. Finally, Umbreon uses Snarl which sucks up the opponent's Resonance Gauge and prevents them being able to land critical hits
Edit @ 08:33: It has also been stated that there are currently no plans to release additional Pokémon or stages through downloadable content.

Pokémon - Volcanion & The Ingenious Magearna

Following the reveal of the Pokémon Magiana on Wednesday in CoroCoro, more details have been revealed for the upcoming movie, Volcanion & The Ingenious Magearna. With this information, the English name of the Pokémon has been confirmed to be Magearna. No further information has been revealed but will be revealed at a later point
Edit @ 05:20: A new summary for the movie has been released
As Ash and his friends journeyed onward, a huge Pokémon suddenly fell from the sky in front of them! Appearing from the cloud of dust whirled up from the impact of the fall was the mythical Pokémon Volcanion! It turns out that Volcanion, who lives in the secluded "Navel Plateau" together with Pokémon that have been injured by humans actually has an intense hate for all humans.

Volcanion completely ignores Ash and his friends, and attempts to hurry away, but for some reason Ash ends up getting pulled along with it. Volcanion makes a run for it, and Ash gets pulled along. Incredibly, without either of them noticing, the two ended up linked together by a strange chain! Even though they want to get loose from this chain, it proves impossible. With no other choice, Volcanion started running off towards "Azoth Kingdom" while pulling Ash along with it, constantly fighting with him on the way.

Meanwhile, Cabinet Minister Jarvis from Azoth Kingdom, a city of super-machinery where gigantic cogwheels are constantly rotating, has obtained the ultimate invention he has been searching for for so many years. It was the artificial Pokémon Magearna, which was born in the kingdom 500 years ago but since went missing, as well as the unknown power called the "Soul Heart" said to reside inside Magearna.

As Jarvis plots to use this power to rule the kingdom, Volcanion was attempting to retrieve Magearna, who got abducted from the Navel Plateau! "Ain't no way I'll ever forgive the humans!"

Will Volcanion and Ash manage to work together and save Magearna while linked together? And what is the true power the "Soul Heart" hides? It's time for the hottest battle in Pokémon history to begin!

The next images from CoroCoro have come and have revealed some new details for Shadow Mewtwo in the Wii U version of Pokkén Tournament, due out next month globally. In it, it notes that its Psywave attacks can be used in multiple different ways. It can go on the offence with both Power and Technical moves that keep shifting in order to confuse the opponent. Psywave is primarily a close combat move used for setting up combos, but it can also be used as a vortex to suck in opponents and can also be used as a projectile.
It is also said that Shadow Mewtwo storms the 1 Player Mode, Ferrum League. It questions what Shadow Mewtwo's objective is and its relation to the mysterious girl. It can also use Thunder Punch, Fire Punch and Ice Punch in quick succession. If all three hit, a huge amount of damage is dealt.
Finally, it lists standard Mewtwo as being able to use moves such as Hyper Beam.
