It seems this product slipped through the cracks - it's not listed on any distributor's website and no one has even put it up on eBay or Amazon. A new Goodra blister pack is now available at stores like Wal-Mart for $9.99. It comes with a special galaxy holo print of Goodra from Phantom Forces, a Goodra mini-album, and a Phantom Forces and Primal Clash booster pack. Thanks goes to Brave Vesperia from our forums for the photo and heads up!

Update (3:55 PM) - Added a trailer below!

Pokemon Rumble World was just officially announced on Nintendo Direct! The game is the most recent successor to Pokemon Rumble, the 2009 WiiWare game, and features you fighting and collecting all 719 Pokemon... but as toys! The game will be available for download in the 3DS eShop on April 8th. It is free to download and play, but it will have in-app purchases to buy "Poké Diamonds," which will help you progress through the game. You will also be able to earn the Poké Diamonds through Street Pass and in the game itself.

Control cute Toy Pokémon and have exhilarating battles in Pokémon Rumble World! This downloadable game for systems in the Nintendo 3DS family is packed with Pokémon that you can battle and befriend. You can collect 719 species of Pokémon—all the ones that have appeared in the video games up through Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. When you defeat one of the wild Pokémon you meet in a stage, it sometimes becomes your friend. Even Mega-Evolving Pokémon will join the battles, a first for a game in the Pokémon Rumble series!

Befriend as many Pokémon as you can—as you collect more species of Pokémon, your Adventurer Rank goes up. As your Adventurer Rank goes up, the shop will offer more products, and stages will feature stronger Pokémon.

It's not just Pokémon that will appear in Pokémon Rumble World. Your Mii character will also appear in your game, as well as the Mii characters of players you pass! It's the first time in the Pokémon Rumble series that Mii characters have joined in to interact with Pokémon and have adventures together.

Your story is set in the kingdom of toys, and the adventure starts when the king summons you. He explains his frustration at having only one Pikachu. In contrast, a mysterious magician has captured several Pokémon! So the king asks you to show that magician a thing or two by collecting lots more Pokémon, and he lends you his Pikachu to get you started on your adventures. Depart from the castle town via a hot-air balloon to get to different areas where wild Toy Pokémon await!

It's fun to connect with other friends playing Pokémon Rumble World. Players can visit your castle town via StreetPass. Connect your Nintendo 3DS system to the Internet, and Mii characters of faraway players will visit you. They can even provide support for you in future battles in a variety of ways.

Poké Diamonds are meant to make your adventures even more exciting and easy. With Poké Diamonds, you can get hot-air balloons, clothes for your Mii character, extras that provide more fun in your game play, and more. In addition, Poké Diamonds can be used to continue playing in a stage after your Pokémon's HP runs out, as well as to re-inflate hot-air balloons that have become deflated after use. You can acquire them in various ways, including at the beginning of the adventure and when you speak to Mii characters who come to the castle town via StreetPass. You can also purchase Poké Diamonds at the shop in the castle town via Nintendo eShop.

You'll be able to download Pokémon Rumble World from Nintendo eShop starting April 8, 2015.

In-game purchases are available and allow for quicker progress through the game.

The "Pokemon Symphonic Evolutions" tour is now expanding to many new locations through 2016 - and even internationally! A European tour is scheduled for spring 2016, though dates and locations have not been announced yet. It seems the first few runs last year were quite successful for the concert series to be taking off so rapidly (I was at the first one in Washington and it's definitely something you do not want to miss!).

According to Pokemon.com, tickets for all of the following locations go on sale this Saturday. But, Pokemon fans can purchase their tickets one day ahead of the general public this Friday by using the presale code "MELOETTA." Visit Pokemon.com to get direct links to the events.

The first three English cards from Roaring Skies have been revealed: Rayquaza-EX (#60/108), M Rayquaza-EX (#61/108), and Double Dragon Energy (#97/108). If you've followed our posts about the Japanese set, these cards should come as no surprise to you.

June 17th will see the release of three "Hoenn Power Tins" featuring either the "speedy Sceptile-EX, fire-bright Blaziken-EX, or unstoppable Swampert-EX!", as the product description states. No product image is available yet.

Sceptile-EX has not been released in Japan yet, but if you've been following my news posts, you'll know Swampert-EX is a Japanese Gym Challenge promo while Blaziken-EX is being released in an Emerald Break blister pack (both have also received a Mega Evolution card). With this news, Japan will probably see Sceptile-EX and M Sceptile-EX very soon as well. The only question now is how we'll receive their Mega Evolution cards.

Blaziken-EX Promo

Blaziken-EX - Fire - HP170
Basic Pokemon

[R][C] Screaming Fist: 30 damage. You may attach an Energy card from your discard pile to this Pokemon.
[R][C][C][C] Fire Storm: 100+ damage. Flip a coin for each [R] Energy attached to this Pokemon. This attack does 20 more damage for each heads.

When a Pokemon-EX has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Water (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 2


Swampert-EX Promo

Swampert-EX - Water - HP180
Basic Pokemon

[W][C][C] Mud Gulp: 40+ damage. Reveal the top 4 cards of your deck. This attack does 40 more damage for each [W] Energy you find. Shuffle the 4 cards back into your deck.
[W][W][C][C] Hydro Tackle: 120 damage. This Pokemon does 20 damage to itself.

When a Pokemon-EX has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Grass (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 3

The Roaring Skies one-pack blisters will come with either a holo XY47 Heliolisk promo or a holo XY48 Meowstic promo! Meowtic was available at Japan's May Gym Challenge tournaments last year, meaning we're getting the card a year later, while Heliolisk was available a few months later at September's tournaments. The blister packs will be released on May 6th with Roaring Skies.

The two promos join promos of Pangoro and Regirock, which will be released in the set's three-pack blisters. This will thus be the first time in several years that every promo card in a set's blister packs is brand new and not an alternate holo reprint of a card from an earlier set.

XY47 Heliolisk and XY48 Meowstic Promos in Roaring Skies Blister Packs

Heliolisk - Lightning - HP90
Stage 1 - Evolves from Helioptile

Ability: Dry Skin
Any damage done to this Pokemon by an attack from 1 of your opponent's [W] Pokemon is reduced by 30 (after applying Weakness and Resistance).

[L][C][C] Hyper Beam: 60 damage. Flip a coin. If heads, discard an Energy attached to your opponent's Active Pokemon.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: Metal (-20)
Retreat: 2


Meowstic – Psychic – HP90
Stage 1 – Evolves from Espurr

Ability: Mysterious Ears
If this Pokemon is your Active Pokemon and is damaged by an opponent’s attack (even if this Pokemon is Knocked Out), the Attacking Pokemon is now Confused.

[P][C][C] Psycho Blast: 60 damage. Flip a coin. If heads, discard 1 Energy card attached to your opponent’s Active Pokemon.

Weakness: Psychic (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 1
