A tiny scan of CoroCoro has revealed Lucario-EX and M Lucario-EX from Rising Fist (our Furious Fist set). The scan is too small to translate, but we'll likely have a better resolution image in a few days when the magazine is officially released.

Lucario-EX has three attacks, the first for a Pokemon-EX in this era. M Lucario-EX has 220 HP and its signature attack is of course named Rising Fist after the set name, which does 140 damage for three Fighting Energy and with an unreadable effect.

Pokemon Get TV just revealed the first Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire footage of Groudon and Kyogre in what appears to be the game title screens or cut-away footage. The same footage has also been uploaded to Pokemon's YouTube channel, as you can see below. A bit underwhelming, but oh well!

Below is our very own live stream of Pokemon Get☆TV, which will have the first Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire footage within its hour-long broadcast! We've also included our chat room so you can talk about the news as it is revealed.

As any news is revealed, I will update this news story with screenshots and information. If you're chatting below, make sure you open a new PokeBeach tab to see the news in another window or you'll lose your connection to the chat and stream. After the stream is over, I'll upload higher quality video of the announcement if Pokemon does not release its own official video.

A commercial for Pokemon Get☆TV aired yesterday and announced that the show will be revealing the first footage of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire this Sunday (Saturday in the U.S.). We will post screenshots right when it airs and will also try to post video footage afterwards, so stay tuned!

Also, CoroCoro will be leaking in the next few days. We'll of course post the scans and translations as soon as it leaks!

Pokemon has announced that Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be released this November worldwide. The press release states "Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are a fresh take on Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire... The new titles promise to take players through a dramatic story within a spectacular new world." Like X and Y, the game is listed as having some 3D elements. No other information is known right now.

Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet and Omega is the last. It's like saying "the beginning and end" (or the inverse). It should also be noted that the red and blue markings on Kyogre and Groudon below are different than their normal designs. Could they be their Mega Evolutions or something else?

Check out this forum thread to discuss the big news!

Pokemon XY Demo

Last August, TPCi filed a trademark for "Pokkén Fighters" and "Pokkén Tournament" while Japan filed one for "Pokken." This was about the same time the screenshot of Lucario facing off against Blaziken was seen. Now, GoNintendo has discovered that the two trademarks were registered in Europe last week, which means news could be coming soon.

As always, you simply need to examine the marketing machine that is Pokemon to get some clues about what is going on. As our TCG fans know, Japan's XY3 set is named Rising Fist and features Lucario. What's different about this set is that it is being released on June 14th rather than the middle of July, which has always been the case for summer TCG sets because they are meant to advertise the latest Pokemon movie (The Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie hits theaters in July, as with every Pokemon movie).

Therefore, the set is obviously not advertising the movie and breaking tradition for a reason, since it would be featuring Diancie over Lucario if this were normal circumstances. Could we be getting the Japanese Rising Fist set in June because it's meant to advertise a new Pokkén Fighters game? Not to mention the obvious fact that the set is themed after Fighting-type Pokemon and this new game appears to be too (there's even a Fighting-type TCG symbol in the screenshot). The English version of the set, Furious Fist, comes out on August 12th, so it seems that if there is a new game coming, we'll be getting it this summer.

The E3 video game convention is next month in Los Angeles. Last year, Pokemon revealed some exclusive XY news at the convention (after I unknowingly spilled it early when I was there, lol). If a new game is coming out, they will probably feature it at the convention again, which may also be why the trademark was just filed in Europe too - they're getting ready to reveal it and/or it's coming out soon.

Update (Tuesday, 6:00 PM) - The Mega Charizard Box will come with either Mega Charizard X or Y for the jumbo.

A new "Mega Charizard Box" will be released soon with a M Charizard-EX jumbo, a holo Charizard promo (the one below may be a placeholder), and three booster packs. We've also received work that a "Krookodile-EX Box" will also be released, containing a standard and jumbo promo of the card and four booster packs. We don't know when these products will be released and have no further details, but we'll update this story as soon as we find out!

We have received word that America's XY3 set is named Furious Fist and will be released in stores on August 13th. The set is obviously our equivalent to Japan's Rising Fist (below), of which we know very little about at this point.

Worlds is August 16th to 17th, which means this set would be legal for the tournament (assuming our date is correct - Plasma Blast was released on August 14th last year). Unless TPCi really wants to make Worlds competitive and spontaneous, one would assume the set won't be legal since there is such a short window to buy the cards and Pokemon fans would be out for blood and raiding Wal-Marts. Then again that would be pretty funny and give a whole new meaning to the set's name. On the plus side, it would be a truer test of a Pokemon player's skills to figure out how to use the set under such tight circumstances and would also give prerelease tournaments a major boost in attendance. Not to mention make things more fun!

We'll of course let you know when the set's official release date is as soon as Pokemon announces it, so stay tuned!

As we posted a while ago, a new "Charizard-EX Box" would be released on May 7th to accompany Flashfire‘s English release. Some stores are already selling it, as you can see below - Charizard-EX is XY promo #17. The box comes with four booster packs and Charizard-EX as both a holo jumbo and holo promo. Charizard-EX was originally released in the March 15th issue of CoroCoro magazine in Japan.
