There are few things in this world that I love more than when Pikachu dresses up as someone or something else in officially licensed merchandise. Now it has been taken to the next level. At the end of this month, Nintendo and the Pokémon Company are releasing a line of merchandise based around an idea so simple that I'm amazed it's taken this long to happen: Pikachu dressed as Mario. And I need all of it to live.
Garfemon is a project by cartoonist Shawn Bowers where he's mashing up Garfield's signature orange-and-black design with the original 151 Pokémon. It is easily one of the most upsetting things we have ever seen on this job, so obviously we had to share it with you, dear reader.
For a certain generation of fans, the Pokémon anime holds a very special place in their heart. Even if they haven't picked up an installment in the handheld gaming franchise in over a decade, or only briefly looked at Pokémon Go, the adventures of Ash, Misty, Brock and Pikachu are a cultural touchstone that many hold dear in their heart.
Beginning this month, Nintendo is hoping to rekindle the love of Poké-fans around the world with Pokémon Generations, a weekly series of animated webisodes highlighting classic moments from the games.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
Ever since Pokémon Go took over the world, those weird, cute, sometimes creepy pocket monsters have become more popular than ever. Everyone has their favorites, whether its the beloved Pikachu, the dashing Ponyta, or that elusive Gyarados that they've been chasing since day one. But which of the original Pokémon is the best --- and which leave a lot to be desired?
We asked a panel of pokéxperts to rate and review all 151 of the first generation Pokémon and create the definitive list, from worst to best! We look forward to your furious repudiations.
The dream of a live-action Pokémon movie has been alive for the past twenty years of the franchise's existence, with fans around the world imagining the day they'll see an approximation of a real Charizard or Mewtwo on the screen.
Talks have been ramping up about that possibility becoming an actual reality as of late, and it seems our dreams may come true with the news that Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain Marvel screenwriter Nicole Perlman may be working with Gravity Falls' Alex Hirsch on the upcoming adaptation.
At this point, I don't know why they even bother making trailers for Pokémon games. I mean, if Pokémon Go has taught us anything, it's that Pikachu and the other 700-odd pocket monsters as as popular as they've ever been. Still, with Sun and Moon set for release on November 18, Nintendo and the Pokémon Company are trying to get everyone as stoked for the new title as they possibly can. And it is working.
Witness the latest trailer for the game, which doesn't just introduce another handful of new Pokémon, but also special regional variants of existing Pokémon that can only be found in the Alola region!
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
This week we’re taking a look at the five baddest first generation Pokémon.
If you've been playing Pokémon Go lately --- and let's be real here, you have --- then you've probably noticed those showers of pink petals that show up at Pokéstops every now and then. Those, my friends, are lures, and they increase the number of Pokémon that show up to be caught in that area. And considering that you need to catch 'em all, those can come in pretty handy.
The problem, of course, is figuring out where they're going to be, but today, we have some very helpful information: In honor of this week's New Comics Day and the start of San Diego's Comic-Con International, Valiant Entertainment is sponsoring Lures at eleven comic book stores in New York, New Jersey, and California.
In case you've been off the grid lately, Pokemon Go came out in the US and some other countries exactly one week ago today! And what a week it's been. Nintendo's stocks have shot sky-high, millions of gamers are discovering the concept of physical exercise, and CA's own Chris Sims was last seen roaming the Great Smoky Mountains armed only with a portable generator and wifi signal booster in pursuit of the legendary Ho-Oh.
In honor of our new national pastime, this week we're recounting the time eternal ten-year old Ash Ketchum and his best buddy Pikachu fought God in Pokemon: Arceus & The Jewel of Life!
