POKÉMON RUMBLE RUSH ANNOUNCED FOR SMARTPHONES

Latest Title in Rumble Series Coming to Android and iOS Devices

In Pokémon Rumble Rush players assume the role of an intrepid adventurer tasked with discovering new islands and the various Pokémon that inhabit each area. As they explore each island players must overcome the hordes of enemy Pokémon that stand in their way. By tapping the screen, the players’ partner Pokémon will rush in and attack each oncoming wave. During each of these encounters there is a chance one or more of the Pokémon will befriend a player and in turn use those Pokémon in future battles. Each island adventure features Super Boss fights and, if victorious, players have the chance to get items that power up their Pokémon.

As they play Pokémon Rumble Rush, players will have the chance to encounter hundreds of different species of Pokémon. The more players explore the game world and take part in special events, the more Pokémon they will discover—possibly including Legendary and Mythical Pokémon! Exploration may also lead to players finding a previously undiscovered stage, and as a reward, players get to name it.

When exploring an area on their own, a hint function can display the Pokémon that inhabit that area. Also, when players view a map of an island, occasionally they'll see some hot air balloons passing by. Tapping a hot air balloon will let players try a stage that other adventurers have already discovered, which means players may encounter Pokémon that they haven't found before.

ARMORED MEWTWO

Sakaki from the Rocket Gang gave Mewtwo this restraining form that controls its power as it searched for the meaning behind its existence in this world.
Even though what's said to be the greatest power that any Pokémon has ever had has now been suppressed, Mewtwo still possesses the power to overwhelm other Pokémon.

Fans Unable to Get Pokémon Detective Pikachu TCG Promo Packs Due to Limited Supply and Hording

The Pokémon Company and Warner Brothers released the Pokémon Detective Pikachu movie in theaters in North America officially on May 10th, 2019. As part of the promotion for the movie, a 2 card booster pack was being distributed with tickets which included a Pikachu SM190 promo card and a random card. Unfortunately, due to low supply and people hording, many fans are reporting that they have not been able to get the Pikachu promo card.

Many theaters are reporting they receive a small supply of promo cards that couldn't even cover the first showing on the first day. A box of 200 booster packs was sent to many theaters. This is extremely unfortunate for Pokémon fans and TCG collectors that are looking to obtain this special promo card, only distributed at this theater showing. Warner Brothers nor The Pokémon Company have responded to this promotion dilemma. Reports from all over North America on social media are indicating that this isn't a localized issue.

News Article Writers Note: I personally attended a showing on Tuesday morning in Ontario, Canada at a Cineplex theater and wasn't able to get a promo pack. Talking to multiple staff members, they all indicated the packs were gone the first day, first showing. There was no indication anywhere that this promo was first showing only. Just a warning to those fans that haven't attended the movie yet, it is unlikely you will be able to get this promo card now.

Cineplex responded to our inquiry as to the limited distribution and they indicated that the cards were distributed to select theaters in Canada on Thursday, May 9th, 2019 and Friday, May 10th, 2019. Due note that May 9th, 2019 is not the official release date of the movie.
