Play Pokemon Event

Pokemon.com has officially announced the video game Premiere Challenge events we first reported about a month ago. The events will begin this weekend and last until the end of June.

Announcing Premier Challenges, a new way for Pokémon video game players to compete!

The Play! Pokémon program is excited to announce Premier Challenges, a new event series being hosted at various locations throughout North America, April 21 – June 23. Premier Challenges are a new way for you to battle in more fun, organized events—as well as earn Championship Points to bring you one step closer to an invitation to the Pokémon World Championships!

The Premier Challenges will feature battles using Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, and follow the same format as the 2014 Pokémon Video Game World Championships. Read the Pokémon Tournament rules for complete details.

Premier Challenges will take place primarily where Pokémon League events are currently held. However, only a portion of League sites will host Premier Challenges during this first event period. Use the Play! Pokémon event locator to find a Premier Challenge near you.

An extended trailer for The Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie was just posted to Pokemon's YouTube channel, as you can see below. It reveals several new scenes, though most of them are likely created just for the trailer. It also reveals that Xerneas can speak telepathically (with a female voice, I think).

Volcanion in Pokemon X and Y

Three new moves have been discovered through hacking X and Y. The first one appears to be an event-exclusive move in the vein of Celebrate, the second two may have something to do with Zygarde.

It has also been discovered through hacking that Hoopa's Ability is Magician and its stats are 80/110/60/150/130/70. Volcanion's ability is Water Absorb and its stats are 80/110/120/130/90/70.

YouTube channel GameXplain has created a fairly detailed analysis of Greninja's capabilities in Super Smash Bros. based on yesterday's reveals. The video includes a breakdown of the Pokemon's attacks, abilities, and some rather interesting speculation.
