Hoopa Unbound Revealed for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Trailer


Press Release

Hoopa is a Mythical Pokémon that you cannot meet through ordinary gameplay in the world of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. It is the 720th Pokémon to be added to the Pokédex, and it would appear that it can change form.

Hoopa Unbound is the new and truest form of Hoopa, which until now has had its power sealed away. The rings it carries have the power to bend dimensions and are said to allow it to seize anything in the world.

After its transformation, Hoopa Unbound is far larger than it was in its previous appearance. It is easy to recognize by its six huge arms, and it is carrying a greater number of its signature dimension-bending rings.

Hoopa Unbound stats:
· Category: Djinn Pokémon
· Type: Psychic/Dark
· Height: 21′ 04″ [6.5 m]
· Weight: 1,080.3 lbs. [490.0 kg]
· Ability: Magician

How does Hoopa regain its true form? As with the secret of meeting Hoopa itself, this mystery has yet to be solved…

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire launched in November 2014. Pokémon fans can collect, battle and trade Pokémon as they travel throughout the rich natural beauty of the Hoenn region.

Contest Entry Period is from February 18th, 2015 until March 29th, 2015. Winners will be announced in April 2015 with the cards being distributed in Autumn 2015.

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
