Pokemon Centers in Japan are displaying posters for Emerald Break, revealing Reshiram for the first time and our first close-up view of some previously obscured cards. Thanks goes to Vincent for the translations and sasaki_tcg for sending us the photos! Emerald Break hits store shelves on March 14th.

The Rayquaza-EX that will be included in CoroCoro will also come in a shiny black version. The shiny Rayquaza will only be available through a campaign involving the promotional insert cards inside Emerald Break's booster packs. The regular Rayquaza is 123/XY-P while the shiny one is 122/XY-P.

The Kyogre and Groudon Collections are now available at some stores! Each box comes with XY51 Kyogre or XY52 Groudon, a figure of the Pokemon's Primal Reversion, two Primal Clash packs, one Phantom Forces pack, and one Furious Fists pack. The promos are reprints from Primal Clash, but with new English-exclusive artwork. The figures were originally released in Japan to those who preordered OR/AS. Thanks goes to Pokeseller96 for the scans!

The Eon Ticket is now available for download until Monday. Use the code "2015LATIOSLATIAS" if you're in North America and "POKEMON380381" if you're in Europe. The Eon Ticket allows you to encounter Latias in Omega Ruby and Latios in Alpha Sapphire (the one you didn't encounter when you first played). If you've already received the ticket, you won't be able to download it again.

Have any spare change lying between the couch cushions? A store has put up an extremely rare lot of nine Base Set 1st edition booster boxes for a whopping $119,000! (Though you can make a lower offer.) A booster box of Base Set is hard to find, let alone a 1st edition lot, so this is a pretty rare occasion. Getting a college diploma costs about as much as these boxes, but at least if you go this route the paper might actually be worth something. :p

Pokemon Shuffle

The 3DS eShop game, Pokemon Shuffle, is now available for download in North America, Europe, and Australia. It is a puzzle-matching game similar in idea to Pokemon Trozei, as we covered before.

Shuffle is free to download, but it's a "freemium" game. In order to play through it, you either have to spend real money on "jewels" or wait to continue playing. One jewel costs $0.99, six cost $4.99, 12 cost $8.99, 35 cost $24.99, and 75 cost $47.99.

Jewels are used to buy "hearts" in the game, with each stage costing one heart to play. One jewel equals five hearts ($0.99 / 5 stages), three equal 18, six equal 38, and 12 equal 80 ($8.99 / 80 stages). That should give you an idea how much it costs to play, though jewels are also used to buy items in the game (via coins), so you will probably spend your jewels toward those as well. When you are under five hearts, you will get a free heart every 30 minutes. You can also get some hearts in-game for free.

As has been the case since 2004, Shakespeare has now scanned Primal Clash properly, replacing all of the prerelease scans that readers kindly sent in back in January. Thanks also goes to BigfootAUS for assisting me with the editing - took us almost 15 hours combined!
