Pokémon: The Power of Us
Did you miss the limited theatrical release of Pokémon: The Power of Us earlier this month? If yes, and you happen to live in the United States, there’s nothing to worry about: the movie will air on Disney XD next week, on December 8th at 7PM!

Next week, on December 3rd, a brand new Software update for Pokémon Duel will be released: Ver. 2.0.9. It will offer a preview of the big update releasing next year, and more precisely Z-Moves. This is some sort of beta test, that will allow the developers to make tests and get feedback.
The update will add 3 Z-Moves to the game: Bloom Doom, Inferno Overdrive, and Hydro Vortex. When you activate any of them (only possible when your Z-Move gauge is full), all 96 segments of your Pokémon figure’s move wheel turn into the Z-Move, and all your opponent’s Blue Moves turn into Miss segments. But that’s not all: Z-Moves are extremely powerful, as each one does double the amount of damage as the most powerful attack of your Pokémon.
Also, the update will remove purchaseable Boosters, which is why it’s recommended you use all your Booster Tickets before the update is live. Afterwards, you will still be able to get boosters as rewards.
More details about the various Software updates for Pokémon Duel can be found on this page!
But before that update, it’s time for another event! The latest Queen’s Cup event is now live, and runs until December 3rd. This one allows you to earn the Dragonair and Dragonite figures!
