Reminder: Don't Buy The Wrong Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass

Today, Nintendo Support (via Hachima) warned people about confusing the two and making the incorrect purchase.

Nintendo Support added that if you simply purchase Expansion Pass in the game menu screen’s lower right banner, you will purchase the...

The first thing every player sees when starting a new game of Pokémon Red or Blue is the pixelated image of a scientist named Professor Oak. Oak welcomes you to the world of Pokémon, inviting you to study and understand these creatures alongside him in his quest for knowledge.

It’s an inspiring moment, even today. After thousands of games that ask you to win, kill, conquer, and destroy,...

Pokémon Rumble Rush Ends Service In July

Mobile pocket monster battling game Pokémon Rumble Rush

Baby Pokémon Get Dynamax Versions In Sword And Shield's Wild Area

The biggest Pokémon just got a whole lot smaller.

Ultimate.

Dynamax Pokémon are amped-up versions of standard Pokémon unique to...

Pokémon Go Makes It Easier For Players To Stay Put During The Pandemic

Pokémon Go encourages players to go out into the world and meet each other, but that’s not the best idea when the world is trying to slow the spread of coronavirus covid-19. Developer Niantic has implemented temporary changes in the game to make catching Pokémon without going anywhere easier.

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, the

enchanting remake of a pair of Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS games coming out this week for the Switch, the human player wakes up in a world populated by talking pocket monsters, reborn as one of their own.
