A new "Legendary Dragons of Unova Collection" will be released this November. It will include a Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem figure, holo promos of each of them (perhaps not the ones pictured below), and four Black and White series packs. All three figures have been released before.

Today on the Japanese eShop, the commercial for Pokemon X and Y that played before the Genesect film was put up on the preview page for the games which means that we've now got clear shots of Orotto! The whole trailer will likely be up on the official websites in the coming days, perhaps with even more information about the new Pokemon, but until then we have some photos which you can check out below.

Here is our rendition of Orotto from the other week. As we stated in the news story at the time, the spikes may be leaves or a combination of leaves and spikes. It was hard to tell in the movie theater and it's hard to tell even here.

Edit: Clean screenshots added, along with the trailer. When we originally saw the trailer we thought Clauncher might be battling Skrelp underwater but then edited it out of the news story because we weren't sure if it was just the attack animation going blue. What do you think?

Orotto Encounter Orotto Encounter

To reiterate what things were seen in this new trailer (some of which is old now):

  • Fennekin uses a new move called Glow Punch against Litleo.
  • Clauncher seems to be battling Skrelp underwater.
  • There is a blue car parked in Lumiose City.
  • The player is seen riding a bike.
  • There is a quick shot of a water fountain with two Horsea statues shooting out water at a Clamperl statue in the middle.
  • The player walks up a staircase to a train station - we can see train tracks behind him, which go over a bridge.
  • Skrelp is battled on the beach over a puddle of water with the ocean and a mountain in the background.
  • Mewtwo in its new forme uses some sort of attack that shoots white light up with DNA overhead.
  • Charizard uses Fire Blast against Flygon in a Sky Battle.

Will add the rest of the Plasma Blast scans later today. Busy busy!

On September 25th, a new "Red Genesect Collection" will be released for $19.99. It will come with a 60 card theme deck that is all holo, a Genesect pin, a Genesect promo, a metallic Genesect coin, a deck box, damage counters, two Black and White series packs, a playmat/rulesheet, and a strategy sheet.

Since this product will be released in September, the dub of the Genesect movie may be coming out around then. This is also the first time a "collection" has included a theme deck, so there's a chance we could get several unreleased Japanese cards in this.

Today's Pokemon Smash premiered the first footage of the new X/Y anime and some gameplay footage of Pokemon X and Y, as you can see below.

Gamefreak's official website is teasing the below silhouette along with the tagline, "This classic game played all over the world will be reborn from a surprise collaboration." The teaser was not posted on any Pokemon-related pages, so this may just be a new project for Gamefreak involving a collaboration with another game franchise that has nothing to do with Pokemon. We'll let you know as soon as we find out though! Thanks goes to DorianBlack for the translation.

After two additional trips to see Extremespeed Genesect: Mewtwo's Awakening, we now have a detailed drawing of Orotto thanks to our staff member, Viper.Fox. It literally only appears on the screen for three seconds, so you only get one extremely quick glance at it to be able to draw anything (and taking a photo during a movie is illegal). Since it is in a Hoard Battle it is even harder to see its details since the models are much smaller than a single battle's.

For the first showing we drew out the basic body shape and our initial impressions of its design (it's hard to do anything else when you don't know what to expect), on the second showing we were better armed and honed in on its eye, mouth, and body details, and on the third and final showing we had already collaborated with Viper.Fox to make a drawing, printed it out, and held it to the screen to double check everything. We then fixed the last details and finalized the art below, which we are confident is 90%+ accurate (some of the spikes may or may not be leaves - it's hard to tell, so that may be off). Orotto will probably be revealed soon and we'll of course post its official artwork when that happens!

Orotto

Orotto is a cyclops, has greenery on its arms and head, six legs, three horns with spikes, a tiny branch sticking out of each arm, a spike on each arm, and dark stripes wrapping around its body where bark is missing. It can be both male and female and it was seen at Level 25. In the pose it was standing in, it only generally moves just a little bit - there is nothing too specific about its movements. It faces off against Fennekin in a dark forest area.

As posted before, the new X/Y trailer did not reveal too much. Here are some of the details we noticed:

  • There is a blue car parked in Lumiose City.
  • The player is seen riding a bike (already posted the other day).
  • There is a quick shot of a water fountain with two Horsea statues shooting out water at a Clamperl statue in the middle.
  • The player walks up a staircase to a train station - we can see train tracks behind him, which go over a bridge.
  • Skrelp is battled on the beach over a puddle of water with the ocean and a mountain in the background.
  • Mewtwo in its new forme uses some sort of attack that shoots white light up, then hits Xerneas with the lights, which then turn into small rainbow-colored shapes.
  • Charizard uses Fire Blast against Flygon in a Sky Battle.

Pokemon.com has confirmed that the next Modified format will be Next Destinies and on, as reported the other day. BW33 and higher will be legal.

In addition to this, Pokemon has also announced that there will soon be a Black and White-on format! It will start in late 2014 for all sanctioned tournaments. So don't sell your B/W cards!

A New Format for 2015

In addition to announcing our 2014 rotation, we are also pleased to give players a sneak peek at one of the changes that they will see after next year’s expansion rotation.

Starting in late 2014, a new TCG format will be joining the familiar Modified format as a legal option for sanctioned Pokémon events of all sizes. Because this new format will allow players to use all sets from Black & White on, players will have even more options when designing a winning deck!

We will provide more details as we near the end of the 2014 tournament season!

For this to happen, it must mean that the new X/Y cards will be just as compatible power-wise as the upcoming X/Y cards if they're all going to be part of the same format (it also might explain why EX Battle Boost is introducing new EX cards this late - they will probably continue into X/Y). If that's the case, perhaps we will skip EX Battle Boost after all and release its new cards across our X/Y sets. This may all be an effort to sync the card game around the world (or to eventually be able to), especially since EX Battle Boost re-released a bunch of old B/W series EX cards for new Japanese players to get hold of and a lot of our EX cards are already easily accessible through tins. Why else would Japan release a bunch of old B/W cards with a set name like "EX Power Boost" if they have no reason to promote B/W cards, especially when X/Y is right around the corner? Perhaps TPC is going to sync both the release schedule of its sets and with this news today in light of the existence of EX Battle Boost, the global format as well (or at least just the format). But of course this is all just wild speculation at this point and that may be looking way too deeply into things.
