Live-Action ‘Pokemon’ Movie in the Works, Just in Case ‘Pokemon GO’ Isn’t Real Enough For You

The Pokemon Co.

You may be thinking, “But there’s already a live-action Pokemon. It’s called Pokemon GO and it makes me take my dog on extra walks!” Yes, yes, but just in case your personal, semi-live-action experience with the latest app craze isn’t enough, those long-developing plans for a new Pokemon movie have gotten a little more developed as Legendary is making a push to secure rights to the hit game franchise.

Meet Your New Best Friends: ‘Pokemon Sun and Moon’ Reveals Seven New Pokemon

Pokemon Sun and Moon

It's a good week to be really into Pokémon. Not only have we gotten the news that Pokémon Go, the augmented reality game set to debut on mobile devices next month, will be using local features like historical markers to determine which Pokémon you can catch, we also got a look at a handful of new Pocket Monsters set to make their debuts in this fall's Pokemon: Sun and Moon. And naturally, as is the way of all things, it falls to us to discuss them.

Bringing Other Worlds to Life: The Best Video Game Cosplay


With such rich tapestries to draw from, video games provide cosplayers with incredible creative opportunities. We’ve compiled a massive collection of cosplay inspired by video game characters to celebrate the dedication and passion of these fans, with costumes that runs the gamut from the truly iconic to the downright obscure. Some of these costumes are simple and clean; others are dazzlingly complex; but each cosplayer brings a personal touch to these memorable heroes, villains, and side-characters. These are the best video game cosplays.

Ask Chris #290: Picking A Starter Pokemon

Ask Chris #290, background art via Pokemon

Q: Which starter are you going to choose in Pokemon Sun and Moon, and why? -- @MikePogdor

A: You know, there's a part of me that really wants to hold off and weigh all the available options equally before I make this decision. Even if I'm not the kind of person to calculate who's going to give me the best type advantage when it comes time to battle my way through the gym leaders and teach the Elite Four a brutal lesson in humility, I should at least wait to see what their final evolutions --- you know, the ones I'm going to be stuck with through about 90% of the game --- are going to be before I commit.

But like pretty much everyone else, I've already decided. I mean, there could be one of these things that literally evolved into a hundred dollar bill and somehow popped off the screen and directly into my wallet, but if that thing didn't start out life as a tiny little bird wearing a leaf as a bowtie, then folks, I am never going to know about it.

A Poll Has Named Mewtwo As The Most Handsome Pokemon, And If I Have To Know This, So Do You

Mewtwo, A Handsome Pokémon
Mewtwo, A Handsome Pokémon

Usually, when someone takes a poll to find out someone's preferences for Pokémon, they tend to use adjectives along the lines of "favorite," or maybe even "cute." What you do not usually hear is someone asking which Pokémon is the most handsome, which I assume is largely because that's a very difficult standard to apply to, say, a chandelier with a face on it, or whatever Diglett is supposed to be. But that didn't stop someone from asking, and now, we have an answer that I don't think anyone was prepared for.

There Is A Giant Plush Pikachu Being Released in Japan Next Month

The Pokémon Company seems to be on a quest to render all furniture obsolete. First, it was the giant, (almost) life-sized Snorlax that can double as a sofa and physical manifestation of my true self, and the trend of giant plush Pokémon has continued with the company's latest release. Soon, all structures will be Pokémon, and we will be living in a finer world for it.

According to PokeShopper, which keeps an eye on upcoming Pokémon merchandise, next month will see the release of a giant-sized version of the special Valentine's Day edition of Pikachu, putting an end to the very concept of throw pillows.

Bandai Has Rendered All Furniture Obsolete With An (Almost) Life-Sized Snorlax Plush Doll

Snorlax plush doll

It was only a few days ago, when we found out about the upcoming toys being released to celebrate Pokémon's 20th anniversary this year, that I mentioned that my ideal piece of Pokémemorabilia would be a life-sized Snorlax that I could sleep on. Now, on the eve of the Pokéversary, it seems as though the skies have parted and Arceus Himself has descended from His throne in Heaven (and/or a small ball carried by a very determined ten year-old) to grant my wish.

That's right, everybody: Throw your armchair in the trash and witness Bandai's greatest creation: A Snorlax plush doll that stands over five feet tall, coming this August to block roads, scarf down berries, and generally be the single greatest thing anyone has ever owned.

Celebrate The Pokeversary With Limited Edition Monthly Pokemon Toys (And Then Give Them All To Me, Please)

Pokemon toys by TOMY

On the off chance that you divide all of history into the BP and AB eras (Before Pokémon and Anno Bulbasaur, naturally), you may need a reminder that this Saturday, February 27, marks the 20th anniversary of the release of the very first games. It's a big deal, and it's set to kick off a year-long celebration that's going to feature the release of the Pokémon Go interactive app and, if rumors are to be believed, the announcement of Pokémon Sun and Moon coming shortly.

If, however, you want a more tangible representation of the franchise, there's good news on that front, too. Every month, Tomy is going to release a set of special Pokémon toys exclusively through Gamestop and Toys R Us, focusing on the many Legendary Pokémon from the game's 20-year history. Check out the first releases!
