As of July 28th, 2015, Canadian Netflix competitor Shomi will now host the Pokémon Anime on its service according to the official Pokémon Twitter account. Shomi is a video on demand service jointly owned by Canadian cable giants Rogers Communications and Shaw Communications. Unlike Netflix, Shomi is currently only available to Rogers and Shaw Internet or cable customers and a Shomi subscription costs $8.99 CDN a month in addition to a Rogers or Shaw subscription. Some of their higher end cable packages include the Shomi service though. Canadian Pokémon anime fans wishing to watch the series are better off buying the DVD's or buying the episodes and season packs from iTunes. The Pokémon anime series is also available on demand via Netflix or on Pokemon.com's Watch Pokémon TV.

Players of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire that attend Gamescom in Germany from August 5th, 2015 until August 9th, 2015 have the opportunity to get 4 Pokémon being distributed at the gaming conference. Game Freak Battle Director Shigeki Morimoto has selected 4 different Pokémon that are ready for competitive play and players can receive 2 of them via Serial Codes which will be given out on a code card.

Image

Visit the Nintendo stand at gamescom and get 1 code card to receive your ready for battle Pokémon, that Mr. Morimoto from GAME FREAK specifically chose for your edition of Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. After you downloaded them, you should try them in battles against other visitors right away!

Event Pokémon Details

Aromatisse
Level: 50
Moves: Trick Room, Heal Pulse, Disable and Moonblast
Item: Babiri Berry
Ability: Aroma Veil

Aromatisse can start with Trick Room and through the attacks Heal Pulse and Disable, becomes a strong support. In addition its attack Moonblast has devastating effects if it's used against a mighty Dragon Pokémon like Salamence. Aromatisse also highlights itself through the ability Aroma Veil which makes it immune against Taunt and Encore. That ability is for Pokémon who have a supporting role very useful since they can use their attacks undisturbed.

Malamar
Level: 50
Moves: Superpower, Knock Off, Facade and Rock Slide
Item: Assault Vest
Ability: Contrary

Malamar's ability Contrary converts every loss of values that it got in raise of values. That includes losses that it had to take from its own attacks. Because Malamar's attack and defense values get raised, its attack Superpower becomes even more impressive. Malamar also wears an Assault vest, which raises it's special defense. So it becomes even harder to get this Pokémon down.

Sableye
Moves: Calm Mind, Will-O-Wisp, Recover and Shadow Ball
Item: Sablenite
Ability: Prankster

Even before the mega evolution Sableye's ability Prankster makes sure that it can get an impressive start with its attack Will-O-Wisp. Calm Mind raises the special attack plus the special defense and Recover causes it to heal when it gets damage through the opponent. Once Sableye mega evolves, the attack Shadow Ball gives it the necessary offensive power to finish off its opponent. Of course you have the possibility to use the mega evolution right at the start of the battle, so it can use its ability Magic Bounce to repel attacks which cause status problems like paralyze or sleep.

Bouffalant
Moves: Head Charge, Facade, Earthquake and Rock Slide
Item: Choice Band
Ability: Soundproof

Bouffalants ability Soundproof prevents all effects of sound attacks, like for example the popular attack Hyper Voice. With its attack Facade, Bouffalant can defend itself against status problems that come off from common attacks like Will-O-Wisp or Thunderwave.

Pokémon ist wieder auf der gamescom dabei!

Besuche diese riesige Videospiel-Veranstaltung und erhalte 2 kampfbereite Pokémon!

Die gamescom, eine Messe für interaktive Spiele, findet vom 5. bis 9. August in Köln statt – und Pokémon ist dabei! Besuche den Stand von Nintendo, um 1 Code-Karte abzuholen, die 2 Pokémon für deine Ausgabe von Pokémon Omega Rubin oder Pokémon Alpha Saphir freischaltet. Nutze anschließend die Gelegenheit, tolle Pokémon-Kämpfe gegen andere Besucher auszutragen. Herr Morimoto von GAME FREAK hat 4 Pokémon ausgesucht und selbst entworfen. Der strategische Nutzen dieser Pokémon ist unermesslich. Spieler von Pokémon Omega Rubin erhalten Parfinesse und Calamanero, während sich Spieler von Pokémon Alpha Saphir über Bisofank und Zobiris freuen können.

Ein schneller Blick auf diese tollen Pokémon genügt, um zu verstehen, welche Vorteile sie dir während deines nächsten Kampfes verschaffen können.

Parfinesse
Level: 50
Fähigkeit: Dufthülle
Attacken:
Bizarroraum
Heilwoge
Aussetzer
Mondgewalt
Item: Babiribeere
Wesen: Locker

Parfinesse kann mit Bizarroraum loslegen und durch die Attacken Heilwoge sowie Aussetzer zu einer starken Stütze werden. Des Weiteren kann seine Attacke Mondgewalt verheerende Auswirkungen haben, wenn sie gegen mächtige Drachen-Pokémon wie Brutalanda eingesetzt wird. Parfinesse hebt sich außerdem durch seine Fähigkeit Dufthülle hervor, die es gegen Verhöhner und Zugabe immun macht. Diese Eigenschaft ist bei Pokémon, die eine unterstützende Rolle übernehmen, sehr nützlich, denn dadurch können sie ihre Attacken ungestört einsetzen.

Calamanero
Level: 50
Fähigkeit: Umkehrung
Attacken:
Kraftkoloss
Abschlag
Fassade
Steinhagel
Item: Offensivweste
Wesen: Hart

Calamaneros Fähigkeit Umkehrung wandelt jeden Wertverlust, den es erlitten hat, in Werterhöhungen um. Dazu zählen auch Verluste, die es durch seine eigenen Attacken hinnehmen musste. Da Calamaneros Angriffs- und Verteidigungs-Werte dadurch erhöht werden, wird seine Attacke Kraftkoloss noch fulminanter. Calamanero trägt auch eine Offensivweste, die seine Spezial-Verteidigung anhebt. Es wird also noch schwieriger, dieses Pokémon niederzuringen.

Zobiris
Level: 50
Fähigkeit: Strolch
Attacken:
Gedankengut
Irrlicht
Genesung
Spukball
Item: Zobirisnit
Wesen: Locker

Noch vor der Mega-Entwicklung sorgt Zobiris' Fähigkeit Strolch dafür, dass es mit seiner Attacke Irrlicht einen imposanten Start hinlegen kann. Gedankengut erhöht den Spezial-Angriff sowie die Spezial-Verteidigung und Genesung bewirkt, dass es sich erholt, wenn es durch Gegner Schaden erlitten hat. Sobald Zobiris die Mega-Entwicklung durchgeführt hat, verleiht die Attacke Spukball Mega-Zobiris die erforderliche Offensivkraft, mit der es seinem Gegner endgültig den Rest geben kann. Du hast natürlich auch die Möglichkeit, Zobiris' Mega-Entwicklung schon zu Beginn eines Kampfes durchzuführen, sodass es mit der Fähigkeit Magiespiegel Angriffe abwehren kann, die Statusprobleme wie Paralyse oder Schlaf bewirken.

Bisofank
Level: 50
Fähigkeit: Lärmschutz
Attacken:
Steinschädel
Fassade
Erdbeben
Steinhagel
Item: Wahlband
Wesen: Locker

Bisofanks Fähigkeit Lärmschutz verhindert alle Effekte von Lärm-Attacken, wie z. B. die beliebte Attacke Schallwelle. Mit seiner Attacke Fassade kann sich Bisofank gegen Statusprobleme wehren, die von weitverbreiteten Attacken wie Irrlicht oder Donnerwelle ausgehen.

Besuche den Stand von Nintendo auf der gamescom und schnapp dir 1 Code-Karte, um so deine 2 kampfbereiten Pokémon, die Herr Morimoto von GAME FREAK eigens für deine Ausgabe von Pokémon Omega Rubin oder Pokémon Alpha Saphir ausgewählt hat, erhalten zu können. Nachdem du sie heruntergeladen hast, solltest du keine Zeit verlieren und sie in Kämpfen gegen andere Besucher testen!
