Press Release - Pokémon Art Academy Competition to find winners whose illustrations will be made into one-off Pokémon Trading Card Game cards

The Pokémon Company International invites Pokémon fans and budding illustrators to enter an International Pokémon Art Academy Contest via Miiverse. Pokémon Art Academy is available exclusively on Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS systems and offers aspiring Pokémon artists 40 lessons in how to paint, sketch, and draw popular Pokémon.

Students of Pokémon Art Academy can pick up illustration skills that they can transfer onto real canvas, or they can share their digital masterpieces with the world. Now, would-be artists can enter a special competition via Miiverse which allows them to showcase their talents as graduates of the Pokémon Art Academy!

The competition will open on 18 February 2015 at 00:01 GMT and close on 29 March 2015 at 23:59 GMT and the winners will be announced in May 2015.

This competition is an exciting opportunity for would-be Pokémon artists from around the world, as the contest’s winners will have their masterpiece turned into their very own Pokémon Trading Card Game card!

Six talented winners will be selected by a jury comprising some of the creators of the much-loved Pokémon universe. Each winner will receive 100 cards featuring their winning image–meaning that they will be in possession of some TCG cards of their own making.*

There are two categories for budding Pokémon artists to enter: Dress-Up Pikachu and My Favourite Pokémon.

Dress-Up Pikachu

Inspired by the special Cosplay Pikachu, which can be discovered in the recently launched Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire video games, this category gives entrants the chance to play fashion designer and create their very own Pikachu outfit!

In the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire video games, Pikachu can dress up as Pikachu Belle; Pikachu Rock Star; Pikachu Pop Star; Pikachu, Ph.D.; and Pikachu Libre. Donning an array of new looks, Cosplay Pikachu can learn moves that ordinary Pikachu cannot learn in normal gameplay, and all have fun costumes that are sure to inspire the would-be costume designers who enter this category.

My Favourite Pokémon

This category gives entrants the chance to submit their own artistic impressions of a favourite Pokémon, which they can do using the Free Paint mode of Pokémon Art Academy. So, if Snorlax awakens an inner Leonardo da Vinci, or Rayquaza gets fans painting with flying colours, then this is their perfect category!

Details of how to enter can be found below, so all that remains is for Pokémon fans to grab a stylus and start discovering their inner artist with Pokémon Art Academy!

*The winners’ cards will not be made available for sale in regular Pokémon TCG products nor will they be eligible to take part in Play! Pokémon officially sanctioned organised play events.

Important Note on Regions

There will be three winners in each category across the participating countries. The following countries are included:

Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, the Netherlands, and Russia

The following country is excluded: Italy

The Pokémon Company announced on February 9th, 2015, that the Eon Ticket distribution was complete in the United Kingdom. An infogram listing all the stats was revealed to the press.

Press Release - EonTicketUK completes its StreetPass Journey Across the UK

The #EonTicketUK completes its StreetPass journey across the country, as thousands of Pokémon fans help spread the virtual in-game item nationwide From a single Eon Ticket released in London to availability across the country, The Pokémon Company International reveals the reach of a virtual in-game item. 9 February 2015—It began with switching on a Nintendo 3DS XL system with a Pokémon Omega Ruby Game Card at 9:00 a.m. on 29 November in GAME Stratford, when Junichi Masuda, producer of the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire video games , set the first Eon Ticket free. Now, two months later, the special virtual item—which allows players to journey to Southern Island again to encounter and catch Latias or Latios—has been confirmed by fans to have arrived in every region of the UK.

Analysis of the campaign’s hashtag shows that between 29 November 2014 and 30 January 2015, the Eon Ticket arrived in over 100 towns and cities in the UK. Social media activity throughout the #EonTicketUK campaign resulted in a potential reach of over 14 million people, as fans that confirmed receipt of the Eon Ticket made plans to spread it further and discussed the ticket’s journey so far.

The Eon Ticket in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire can be spread from one Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS system to another via StreetPass.

“It’s astounding to think that the data from one Pokémon game in Stratford has travelled the length and breadth of the country, spreading the Eon Ticket from the Highlands to Cornwall, from County Antrim to Kent,” says Anthony Cornish, marketing director at The Pokémon Company International. “We’re enormously grateful to everyone who took part in the Great #EonTicketUK Relay and hope those who have the Eon Ticket will carry on passing the ticket to others.”
