Nintendo and GameFreak made an unexpected announcement this week during their “Pokemon Direct” presentation that fans of the classic Pokemon titles should be excited to hear.
In one of the most unanticipated changes to the Pokemon franchise, Nintendo, Creatures Inc. and GAME FREAK Inc. suggest that their latest Pokemon games are going to have a direct sequel.
As soon as my Best Buy opened on the Sunday release, my boyfriend and I rushed over to buy our pre-ordered PokÃ©mon Black and White games, the first game I had actually taken the time out to pre-order in some time. I slipped PokÃ©mon White into my DS as soon as we got home, only stopping to rest when I had to go to work and to sleep. I finished it within the week of getting it, but it was not a triumphant feeling like I had felt in the past. Instead, I felt rather neutral about the whole thing, which made me wonder if the game itself had changed, or if I had changed.
I had not played the SoulSilver and HeartGold generation. I bought it, but was rather bored since it was the exact same thing as the regular Silver game from the Game Boy. I waited and waited until Black and White was released to really get my dose of PokÃ©mon. I bought the White version, so I will reference to that version for this article. Warning: there will be many spoilers. If you have not already played the game, I would suggest reading this later.
Most of us grew up watching Pokemon and playing the games for Gameboy every day. Many of us still do play the Pokemon games as they continue to come out, and one of those fans is my friend. This cake was made for Pixelated Geek’s very own Rachel!
Finally, it’s time to unveil something we’ve been plotting for months: The PiXEL!
Like many other gaming and geek news websites, Pixelated Geek has decided to begin regular newscast videos to keep our readers up-to-date on the latest in the geek world – in a condensed format! The PiXEL will air every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, and will be co-hosted by James Huneycutt and I.
Starting with our very first episode today! The debut episode of The PiXEL feature me talking about Tony Hawk, Minecraft, and Pokemon – watch the video below, and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel and leave comments and suggestions!
Has it truly been 15 years? I have been focusing on PokÃ©mon a lot these past couple of months with this post, and this post, and yeah… this post too. A great game franchise can’t exist for 15 years without some great stories, interesting comics, and fan made projects and products. I have collected a few of these for you to enjoy!
Don’t get me wrong. PokÃ©mon is one of my all time favorite games. My boyfriend and I are counting down the days until we can get our hands on the new Black & White versions. When it comes down to it though, PokÃ©mon doesn’t seem… quite right.
I found an article reviewing the older game, PokÃ©mon Platinum, that demoted the game to nothing better than glorified cockfighting. Is it really that simple? Let’s take a look.
The newest PokÃ©mon games are right around the corner, and in celebration, let’s have a drink. While we’re at it, we might as well play some beer pong, and what better table to use than Tom Sejkora’s PokÃ©mon beer pong table. You read that right, there is a PokÃ©mon beer pong table out there, covered in hundreds of PokÃ©mon cards. Keep reading to take a look!
Currently, twelve Pokemon have the ability Mold Breaker, defined as: moves that can be used regardless of ability. For us Poke-freaks, that means that we can, on my count, ignore 42 opposing abilities in combat that would normally hamper us. Sweet! Are you facing a Rhyperior with Lighting Rod that’s forcing you to hit him with Thunderbolt and not the Poliwrath? Bump that! Mold Breaker lets you ignore Lightning Rod and force some sweet voltage down Poliwrath’s dome. Let’s see how this can play out in the real world.
Or at least I wish I could. This is one of those very few homemade projects that come very close to making me want to do it myself (not quite though). What is this fantastic project that almost made me do work? I’ll give you a hint: it has to do with one of my favorite games (Pokemon), and you can actually use it. No clue? Read on to find out!
