Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is an annual tradition in the United States, and for the past decade, Pokémon has been part of that parade. Naturally, it will also be the case this year, for the 16th year in a row! The 2016 parade will take place tomorrow (on November 24th), and will feature a Pikachu wearing a scarf and carrying a “Snowman Pikachu”.

Pokémon Sun and Moon

Today, we finally opened a special page for Pokémon Sun and Moon, listing all the QR Codes (Pokédex and distributions), Serial Codes, Events, and Distributions for the game. Click here to check it out, and don’t hesitate to share and/or provide feedback!

Here’s the European launch trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon:

Speaking of Pokémon Sun and Moon, it was revealed during the latest GameStop‘s earning calls that it was the company’s best-performing game for the full year, which is a pretty impressive result. It was also the most pre-ordered game at GameStop for the past 5 years, which isn’t surprising given Nintendo previously announced that it was their most pre-ordered game ever.

Finally, here’s some pictures from yesterday’s launch event in the United Kingdom (courtesy of Nintendo):

Pokémon Global Link

Yesterday, regulations for Battle Spot Single, Double, and Special battles were updated on the Pokémon Global Link. Kingdra and Mamoswine were originally banned, but this was quite visibly a mistake, and it’s now been fixed.
