Press Release - Nintendo präsentiert auf der gamescom fantastische Pokémon-Highlights

Auf die Fans warten Pokémon-Entwickler Shigeki Morimoto, tolle Wettbewerbe, ein Pokémon, das nur auf der gamescom erhältlich ist, und vieles mehr

Die gamescom dürfen sich echte Videospiel-Fans ohnehin nicht entgehen lassen. Die Freunde der Pokémon aber haben am 14. August gleich doppelt Anlass, nach Köln zu reisen. Denn an diesem Tag erwartet sie am Nintendo-Stand in Halle 9.1 ein ganz besonderer Stargast: Shigeki Morimoto, der leitende Entwickler des Kampfsystems der Pokémon-Spiele. Er wird nicht nur Autogramme geben, sondern auch für spannende Wettkämpfe in Pokémon X und Pokémon Y bereit stehen. Nintendo sucht dafür sechs Herausforderer, die sich bis zum 8. August auf der Aktionsseite von nintendo.de bewerben können. Im Rahmen des Wettkampfs wird am Nintendo-Stand außerdem eine exklusive Video-Botschaft von Junichi Masuda von GAME FREAK zu den neuesten Editionen Pokémon Omega Rubin und Pokémon Alpha Saphir ausgestrahlt. Außerdem können die Fans an jedem Messetag ein Pokémon ergattern, das in Deutschland nur auf der gamescom erhältlich ist, sofern sie ihren Nintendo 3DS oder Nintendo 2DS samt Pokémon X oder Pokémon Y mitbringen: das besondere Pokémon Vivillon mit Pokéball-Muster. Damit nicht genug, besteht zusätzlich im Cosplay Village in Halle 10.1 täglich die Gelegenheit, an einem Pokémon Cosplay-Fotowettbewerb teilzunehmen.

Er ist aus der Geschichte der Pokémon nicht wegzudenken. Seit 1996, seit den allerersten Pokémon-Videospielen - Pokémon Rote Edition und Pokémon Grüne Edition bzw. Pokémon Blaue Edition - gehört Shigeki Morimoto zum Entwicklerteam der Kult-Serie. Er ist derjenige, der die Statuswerte und Attacken der vielen verschiedenen Pokémon festlegt und für die richtige Balance in den Kämpfen sorgt. Der begabte Entwickler mit dem persönlichen Lieblings-Pokémon Mew ist zugleich ein begnadeter Pokémon-Trainer. Und wer es sich zutraut, gegen ihn anzutreten, sollte sich auf der Aktionsseite von nintendo.de für einen Live-Wettkampf mit Shigeki Morimoto bewerben. Die Battles werden am 14. August am Nintendo-Stand in den Spielen Pokémon X und Pokémon Y ausgetragen. Bei zwei Gelegenheiten – jeweils um 12:00 Uhr und um 15:00 Uhr - haben insgesamt sechs Besucher der gamescom die Chance, es mit dem Meister aufzunehmen. Unabhängig davon, ob sie den Wettkampf vor Ort gewinnen oder nicht, erhalten die sechs Teilnehmer einen Gutschein für eines der kommenden Nintendo-Spiele Pokémon Omega Rubin oder Pokémon Alpha Saphir. Nach den jeweiligen Wettkämpfen sind alle Fans zu einer Autogrammstunde mit Shigeki Morimoto eingeladen. Sie sollten also unbedingt ihr Lieblingsstück aus der Pokémon Welt mitbringen, um dieses signieren zu lassen. Fans sollten auf jeden Fall pünktlich erscheinen, da die Autogramm-Möglichkeit zeitlich begrenzt ist.

Und sie dürfen sich auf ein weiteres Highlight freuen: Junichi Masuda von GAME FREAK wird zu den neuesten Editionen Pokémon Omega Rubin und Pokémon Alpha Saphir eine exklusive Videobotschaft an die Pokémon-Fans auf der gamescom richten.

Alle, die einen der aktuellen Titel - Pokémon X oder Pokémon Y - besitzen, sollten an einem der Messetage auf jeden Fall mit ihrem Nintendo 3DS beim Nintendo-Stand vorbeischauen. Dort erhalten sie, so lange der Vorrat reicht, einen Seriencode, mit dem sie das besondere Pokémon Vivillon mit Pokéball-Muster für ihre Spielversion* bekommen können.

Ein besonders kreativer Wettbewerb findet während der Dauer der gamescom im Cosplay Village in Halle 10.1 statt. Wer die Messe in einem Pokémon-Kostüm besucht, hat dort die Möglichkeit, sich von einer professionellen Fotografin ablichten zu lassen. Eine Jury wählt später die Fotos mit den besten Kostümen aus und präsentiert diese auf der offiziellen Facebook-Seite von Nintendo. Dort hat dann jeder die Möglichkeit, mittels Like-Button oder Kommentar abzustimmen. Der Cosplayer, dessen Foto die meisten Likes bzw. Kommentare einheimst, gewinnt ein Nintendo Fan-Paket. Obendrein verlost Nintendo lustige Goodies unter allen Facebook-Freunden, die an der Abstimmung teilnehmen.

Fazit: Auf der diesjährigen gamescom - und danach - gibt es für die Pokémon-Fans viel zu erleben und viel zu gewinnen. Die neue Pokémon-Region, die es im August zu entdecken gilt, heißt eindeutig Köln.

Get Aegislash!

Get an awesome Aegislash at the 2014 Pokémon World Championships via local wireless distribution! The Lv. 50 Aegislash is well-built for Double Battles, especially because it can use Wide Guard. This move protects Aegwitislash and any allies in play from attacks that target multiple Pokémon per turn. It’s really difficult for Aegislash to learn this move through normal gameplay—it's only available as an Egg Move, and multiple steps are required!

Aegislash is level 50, had the Ability: Stance Change, is holding the Item: Sitrus Berry and knows the Moves: Wide Guard, King's Shield, Shadow Ball and Flash Cannon.

The Pokémon Company International today announced exciting new features and story elements of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, launching on November 28th, 2014, for the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS systems. A brand new gameplay trailer has also been released, giving fans a deeper look at what they will discover in their new adventure through the Hoenn region. Images from the press release have been added to the Imageboard.


New Mega-Evolved Pokémon Mega Metagross!

A new Mega-Evolved Pokémon was revealed today—Mega Metagross. Metagross is the partner Pokémon of Pokémon League Champion Steven, whose deep bond helps it to Mega Evolve into Mega Metagross. Despite helping Trainers throughout their journey, Steven is the last obstacle for Trainers to overcome before becoming the Pokémon League Champion.

oras oras

Mega Metagross, the Iron Leg Pokémon, is a massive Steel- and Psychic-type Pokémon standing at 2.5 m (8’02”) and weighing 942.9 kg (2078.7 lbs). Upon Mega Evolving, Metagross’s Ability changes to Tough Claws, which increases the power of attacks that make physical contact. Mega Metagross also has a greatly increased Speed stat, with additional increases in its Attack, Defence, Sp. Atk, and Sp. Def, making Mega Metagross primed for both offence and defence.

Deepen Your Bonds with Pokémon-Amie and Meet Cosplay Pikachu!

First introduced in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, Pokémon-Amie returns in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Pokémon-Amie allows Trainers to create close ties with their Pokémon by playing games together, petting them, and feeding them special snacks called Poké Puffs. As a player’s Pokémon become more affectionate, they will be more likely to do such things as evade attacks in battle, land critical hits, and get an overall boost in performance.

oras oras

Players will see Pikachu like they’ve never seen it before—Cosplay Pikachu—in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Meet Pikachu Rock Star, Pikachu Belle, Pikachu Pop Star, Pikachu Ph.D., and Pikachu Libre! They seem to have a connection to a kind of Contest Hall. Players will also be able to interact with Cosplay Pikachu in Pokémon-Amie. More information about the new Cosplay Pikachu images shown today will be revealed in August!

Journey through the Hoenn Region

Your Hoenn adventure begins when you meet Pokémon Professor Birch, who runs the Pokémon Lab in Littleroot Town. Professor Birch will help players begin their journey by giving them their first Pokémon and a Pokédex. The Pokémon that appear and the rarity of each will differ between Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.

oras oras

The first step to becoming the Champion is to challenge and defeat each of the Gym Leaders in the Hoenn region, including the main character’s father, Norman, who is the Leader of the Petalburg City Gym. It was also confirmed today that players will encounter and battle Rustboro City Gym Leader Roxanne, Dewford Town Gym Leader Brawly, Mauville City Gym Leader Wattson, and Lavaridge Town Gym Leader Flannery.

oras oras

After defeating eight Gym Leaders, players will travel to the Pokémon League to battle the Elite Four, including Sidney and Phoebe. Upon defeating the Elite Four, Trainers will take on the Hoenn League Champion, Steven, and his Mega Metagross, in the hope of becoming the new Pokémon League Champion!

More Information on Mega Diancie Revealed!

When Diancie Mega Evolves into Mega Diancie, it will get the Magic Bounce Ability, which makes any status condition or stat-lowering effect bounce back at the Pokémon trying to inflict it. Through Mega Evolution, Mega Diancie receives a big boost to its Speed, as well as boosts to its Attack and Sp. Atk, while experiencing a reduction in its Defense and Sp. Def. The boosts help Mega Diancie with its quick, powerful attacks, such as Diamond Storm and Moonblast.

Further details of how players can get Diancie for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will be shared soon. Players who receive Diancie can Mega Evolve it in Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
