Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon

Just like Pokémon Sun and Moon, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon is getting a Dual Pack in North America. It includes both copies of the game, but also an exclusive Steelbook. This particular edition of the game costs $79.99 in the United States (available on Amazon; NB: affiliate link), and $99.99 in Canada.

Here’s what the Steelbook looks like:

Nothing has been announced for Europe and Japan yet, but it’s only a matter of days/weeks until we get an announcement for those two regions.

Thanks Serebii for the CA$ price!

Pokémon Duel

A new update for Pokémon Duel is now available, and it brings the game to Ver. 3.0.12. It provides various changes to some of the figures: you can find the patch notes on this page!

But this time around, the update also adds 9 new figures:

  • EX Figures: Entei, Blaziken
  • R Figures: Combusken, Vespiquen, Munchlax
  • UC Figures: Magby, Ledian, Combee, Metapod

Finally, a new Orange Time Booster (guaranteed to hold Fire or Bug-type Pokémon), and a special 10 Pack Booster have been added, for a limited time. There’s also a new Plate, which works based on Bug and Flying-type Pokémon.

One last thing: if you buy some before July 25th, you can get up to 50% extra diamonds!

Mew distribution (Japan)

Today, a new Pokémon distribution for Pokémon Sun and Moon went live, allowing Japanese players to get Mew. However, there was a glitch with that distribution, due to the particular OT Mew had. That OT was 20TH☆, and as you probably guessed, the issue ca from the ☆ symbol. When traded, Mew’s OT would be reset to Sun., Sonne., サン., Soleil., Sol., Sole. & 썬 (depending on the language used).

Naturally, this issue has now been fixed, and the developers simply changed the OT to “20th” (without the ☆ symbol) to fix it. If and when this particular Mew will be distributed in Japan, you can be sure the OT will not feature any “exotic” symbols!
