Pokémon TCG Online has been available for Apple’s iPads for quite awhile now, but it looks like Android tablet owners can now enjoy TCG battles on the go as well. You can now download the app, although you’ll have to meet the device requirements.

Pits a fun way to play the TCG so if you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend playing! It is free-to-pay so no purchases are strictly necessary.

    Hmm… I haven’t play the TGC in a while. Maybe I’ll play it when this version comes out because I have Android.

  • Wes

    This may be a dumb question, but in the weeks I’ve been on the forums I’ve yet to figure out how to do a status update. Am I being dumb, or is it hard to find? (I’m using chrome from an Android if it matters)

    • Green

      It’s hard to find for me too, maybe cuz I’m also using Chrome from an Android.

    • I think unless you’re a Founder, there’s a minimum post count and/or signup duration before you can do statuses. I quite recently gained it.

  • Well that is nice. I was wondering if there would ever be an Android version.

  • DemiFan

    Go check out TyranitarTube’s newest speculation video on S&M… it is insanely probable and amazing!

    https://youtu.be/8wJPVw355WE

    • Someone already posted it in the last chat. This very well could be possible, but one issue. We’re not in Kalos any longer and it’s a completely new generation of Pokemon. Zygarde is not going to skip town and go to some new region. Nothing seems to relate to Zygarde, unless it’s some post game event. It’s a plausible theory, with a quite of bit of short comings.

      • Pokemania88

        Yeah I posted it and thought it was very accurate. However he explains that it’s both a Pokemon for Kalos and the region in sun and moon.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I really don’t like this guy

      • Pokemania88

        I’m not a fan for sure but this theory is definitely not bad. And the fact that Zygarde represents both pairs of legs darker possibly is really interesting.

  • DefensiveBastiodon

    Lol it took forever to play the iPad version because it wouldn’t load and freeze. It’s also horrible if you don’t have good Internet. Wish it was available for larger phones like the 6 Plus and Note 5.

  • It’s honestly about time the game gets a proper Android release. I’m not a TCGO player, but I could understand their frustration.
    Anyways, I’m back at it again with these NX leaks, I love keeping you guys posted (P.S. He did not get verified because his information was insufficient, so do take this with a grain of salt.):

    – To recap, the system will be officially called the Nintendo NEX.
    – He posted a potential rough sketch of how the NX will look like.
    – There will be a large number of launch titles for the NX.
    – He does not have 100% confirmation on these games, but based on previous rumors and Dev Kits held by these companies, their highly possible: Final Fantasy 14 & 15, Destiny, Battlefield, F-Zero EX (I’m assuming that this is the game using Unreal Engine 4, as it might require realistic graphics), and Super Smash Bros. Wii U Port (There were rumors about Namco Bandai porting the title to the NX).
    – These are proven launch titles for the Nintendo NX: Super Mario NEX (Similar in graphics to Mario Sunshine, in addition, we already knew the Mario Team was working on a new game.)

    Zelda Wii U: Definitive Edition NEX (SuperMetalDave leaked Pokemon Niji, which were the codenames of the Pokemon Sun and Moon, also he got the entire 3DS release calendar correct. He posted before that Zelda Wii U will be ported to the NX an hour before he posted the 3DS rumors, additionally he is one of the most credible leakers.)

    Luigi’s Mansion (I’ve posted the rumor about this title before.), FIFA 17, Call of Duty, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Dragon Quest 11, Mass Effect Trilogy: Definitive Edition, and Mass Effect: Andromeda.
    – Nintendo will have a huge E3 Press Conference to cover everything that is new.
    – The Nintendo Direct is planned before the Investor Meeting, and it will be announced in a few days. There will be Star Fox News present.
    – A leaker among the LCGeek, gave another rumor, which proves these leakers statements: It is more powerful than the XBO/PS4, x86 Architecture, Star Fox Nintendo Direct News, ARM Architecture being a small part of the NX, 12G of DDR3 RAM.

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      I would love for Nintendo to get some big name games on a homes console, especially Kingdom Hearts III and others. Ive missed out on so many games just because I don’t want to buy two consoles

      • Completely agreed! I would love to see KH3. The game is looking like a 2017 title with FF15 being released in the Fall and DQ11 likely being released in the Winter of 2016. Anyways, I’m looking forward to Nintendo improving third-party relations.

    • Armaggedon16

      This is too good to be true.
      Knowing Nintendo,it’s going to to be an underpowered console with miniscule third-party support.

      • Actually, based on the statement from Devs. The NX is some rather powerful and a huge amount of third party developers are looking forward to it.

  • MenacingCascoon

    Hey so quick question
    For the sewaddle expression, do I pick them based on how feel the article is written or do I pick based on how i feel about the topic within the article?

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      Topic of the article

  • Haxford

    I expect Corocoro to leak this weekend. I’m so hyped! I really don’t know what I expect. People are saying they’re expecting starters and protagonists but I think that’s a bit too hopeful.

    • Tev

      True. I think we are only going to get mascot legendaries.

      • Haxford

        I would still like that 🙂

        • Tev

          Same at this point any info about Sun and Moon is appreciated.

  • Shady

    when I saw this I say y the fakemon of these days r look fake ……..But after a little introspection it’s not bad. http://i.4cdn.org/vp/1460102952289.jpg

    • Left: Volbeat + Bulbasaur
      Mid: Vulpix + a circle + Torchic
      Right: Ralts with a cape and legs

    • ShinyXatu

      It’s not bad, except for the fact that the silhouette on the right covers Pokemon Moon’s logo.

      • Shady

        I still can’t figure out wat the middle one is.

        • DefensiveBastiodon

          Looks like a mix between Vulpix, Stantler, and little bit of Sawsbuck

          • Shady

            so wat the hell this animal could be ?

          • DefensiveBastiodon

            Probably a deer

        • NintendoPlayer

          Someone thought these were possible:

          Grass Tanooki or bear

          Fire Tiger or Cat or maybe even a crab.

          Water Lizard

          A tanooki would be pretty cool as a starter.

          • EarthenWarrior

            As long as it doesn’t become a flying type if you catch my drift

  • DAMN NINTENDO! Back at it again with these rumors. A rumor from Emily Rogers states that Zelda 2016 (Zelda Wii U) is coming to both the Wii U and NX. She heard from multiple sources that you could play as either a Male or Female. No clarification if this is Link (the Link in the trailers was confirmed as a male) or Zelda. There is voice acting for most of the characters, except for Link.

  • Shady

    did anybody predict corocoro tomorrow? …………for me I can smell it .

    • EarthenWarrior

      Can you smell this *fart*

      • Shady

        everybody in the world can smell ur fart …don’t mad though.

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    So this guy on Youtube who has some Pokemon GO beta test footage posted a new video that he says could be a cut scene from Sun and Moon. He states that he was just sent the video and it doesn’t seem like he himself knows if itactually is real, but it’s an interesting little clip. If it turns out real it has some very interesting features going on. Once again I’d like to say this could very well be fake, but it’s interesting none the less.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Anyone who thinks this is real is really dumb

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        Just putting it out there sheesh………

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well prepare to be criticized
          Tis the laws of the interwebs

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      Why would that be real lol it looks like a bad Cartoon Network show from the 90s

  • NintendoPlayer

    Here’s a pretty great theory that links sun and Moon to XY based on predicitions of an expanded Norse Mythology.
    http://imgur.com/a/oGL5c

    • Shady

      the person who wrote this …..he…..he he looks like stole my old comments and wrote an article of them.

      • NintendoPlayer

        Possibly, it was something I saw while browsing 4chan. was actually going to post that starter leak, but saw it already was and linked this. Either way it is a good theory, so nice job on thinking of it!

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      This isn’t much new… Except for the AZ and Odin part. It’s just the same stuff that’s been talked about since before Sun and Moon were announced.

      • Shady

        I said post this when I saw AZ at the first time.

      • NintendoPlayer

        Alright, I never saw it brought up anywhere really, so I thought, I’d share. It further solidifies the point though that sun and moon could very easily be a kalos story line continuer.

        • DefensiveBastiodon

          It was back a few months ago. And a lot on the Pokémon community on twitter if you have that.

  • This is great. But wtf is that team they’re using in the preview image, lol.

  • OG Bulba

    I’m really starting to hate fake leakers don’t people have something to do I’m really thinking Alfred has a point that some people just want to see the world burn I just hope they don’t reproduce

  • EarthenWarrior

    Last call for Starter predictions taking all bets
    Grass Peachick
    Fire Ox
    Water Newt

    • ShinyXatu

      Capybara – Water
      Rat – Fire
      Komodo Dragon – Grass

      • EarthenWarrior

        two rodents? That can’t be

      • Pokemania88

        I think fire will be a bull. But water capybara is a big possibility.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Pleasepleasepleaseplease!!!!!!!!
          It fits it soooo well

      • DefensiveBastiodon

        We already had a rat

    • Pokemania88

      The grass starter has always been based off of something prehistoric. So even though I would love a pea chick, it’s not prehistoric. Although the rest is awesome

      • Green

        Chespin is a mole.

        • EarthenWarrior

          It’s a hedgehog

        • Pokemania88

          It’s actually based off of one of the first prehistoric mammals which looks like a rat/porcupine. I forgot what it’s called though.

    • Haxford

      Grass – bird
      Fire – bull or rabbit
      Water – bear or lizard

    • MenacingCascoon

      Fire ice tiger
      Grass flying peacock
      Water fairy water nymph

    • EarthenWarrior

      Mega Vanililux
      A freaking mouthwatering ice cream tower

      And I see several spires of ice and a long dripply tongue

    • Going for Carbink next with MM

      • EarthenWarrior

        Kill it with iron!!!

    • Reece

      Well done! I remember I came across one randomly when I was EV training one of my Pokemon

  • ~20 eggs into Carbink, Masuda Method is easier than i thought

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      It’s too easy. I accidentally hatched two shiny Spinaraks in a row while IV breeding one time.

      • Ithsme

        Speak for yourself; It took me almost 1600 eggs to get shiny turtwig with the shiny charm.

    • EarthenWarrior

      All the more reason shinies lost their value

  • DefensiveBastiodon

    Just a couple more days. Tbh I just want a dolphin or a platypus water starter, a fire bear or bull, and a grass/flying starter.

  • Moonlight Marble

    The torture of checking serebii and Pokejungle every five minutes is about to start…

    Want to see mascot legends! They’re always spectacular! ( hope they don’t look like Zygarde though :/)

    Starter wise, I’d like a fire rabbit, tiger or wildebeest!( they changed dog to fox, why not bull to wildebeest? ( as long as it’s final evo is quadrupedal! Also no fire fighting pls. Grass, I’d like maybe a horse, maybe a wolf like thing, and then water I’d like a horse hippocampus thing or a playtpus ( but it should have a more comedic design). Not found of the bipedal dolphin idea, it’s a bit creepy for me.

    • Wes

      I really like the hippocampus idea, but if they incorporated that I’d have to make a Percy Jackson oriented team. :p

  • EarthenWarrior

    So my associates got Pokken and it got me a thinking for DLC characters and one thing struck me
    We have no flying types
    And outside Hawlucha it hit me

    Braviary!!!
    It’s big and it can attack with wings talons and its beak

    And for its bust it would Storm Dive it shrieks out snatches you with his talons and bring you into a raging hurricane and while it shreds you it slams you back to earth

    • Shady

      Charizard is flying type isn’t it ?

      • EarthenWarrior

        Huh that never occurred to me

  • Moonlight Marble

    How exactly does this leak? What affects when Coro Coro leaks? Is it like when it’s printed or?

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      It’s like any other regular magazine. Basically what happens is stores get the magazine a few day before the actual Street date. Then an employee may take pictures of it if it tickles their fancy. Nothing in particular causes when the leak happens. It’s up to the whoever gets their hands on it.

  • EarthenWarrior

    So I got off my lazy arse and doodled Mega Mew
    HP 100
    Everything else 120

    It’s ability is called Universal Evolution at the end of every turn it randomly changes type

    • I like the design of an embryo. I think a Primal Reversion would make more sense for Mew. The idea of a changing Type per turn would make it an interesting Pokemon.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Ehhh I don’t like giving Primal Regression to anybody outside the Weather trio

        I cannot stress this enough Primal Regression only applies to Kyogre and Groudon as they absorbed the natural energy and became the powered forms which the ancient Hoennites deemed Primal G/K

        Most people peg this as a return to a early state but in truth Groudon and Kyogre never had these forms to begin with but when they absorbed the energy THEN they became these forms

        This Mega Mew hones into the universal aspect that it is the symbol of birth of new genetic code and creation of Pokemon

        Buuuut I’m thinking of giving it a little bit of one thing that it Mega Evolves knowing this new attack that changes with the type change but other then that nothing major

        • I could see that as being the case. From the way I saw it in the game, I thought they reverted back to their more powerful forms. They could so something similar with the Creation Trio; Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. Anyways, your concept is something I would love to see GameFreak do. Instead of it Mega Evolving via Attack, I think something similar to Mega Rayquaza should be used. Like maybe an item, which activates Mew’s evolution!

          • EarthenWarrior

            Like I said I think the only way to let it fly is to make it have this multi type attack that changes with Universal Evolution (also to stop those who only use status moves)

    • Shady

      If u go deeper in this concept I think u will achieve something important ….if this really ur drawing then u should work on this talent cuz u have a good seed.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Great emphasis on doodle I did this in like 2 mins
        And I’ve been drawing my whole life (but at a weird price I do my best work when I’m supposed to not be drawing)

        But if I were to expand on the concept it would stay the same but better angles
        pipes behind the leg, two out of the back, one or two out of the neck and I gotta work with the tail
        But the embryo is an absolute must

  • Yveltal 101

    Today is the release of Corocoro?

    • I believe it’s going to leak between the 11th to the 13th.

    • Shady

      no body know but the official release in 15th ……it will leak in any time between now and then.

  • ShinyXatu

    I just took the ACT for 5 hours and I have a terrible stomachache. Surely I deserve CoroCoro leaks now ;(

    • TheNintendoChip

      I remember having to take a bunch of those standardized tests, and it was awful :c
      I preferred the ACT over the SAT, and I think my scores showed that as well (35 vs 2260 on the old exam)

    • MenacingCascoon

      Ayyy me too how did you think it was

      • ShinyXatu

        I had a difficult time with science and reading comprehension. I also got nailed on the essay because I couldn’t get my thoughts together.

        • MenacingCascoon

          I think I did fairly good except the science, and maybe the reading. My reading comprehension skills in general are awful, but I think I did fine. the Science was the part was harder than normal for me. I couldn’t keep my mind focused and it just seemed very rough. I think I pretty good on the writing portion. I would just like a composite of at least a 24. Lol, on the writing part I wrote about furies and transexuals, what was your question?

        • Wes

          What was the essay? My ACT didn’t have an essay portion.

          • ShinyXatu

            I had to write about casual dressing as opposed to formal dressing in the United States. I honestly had no idea what I was writing about. 😛

          • Luigi301

            i didnt take the act but if only they made us write essays on topics that matter. but instead you get how to dress in the US

          • MenacingCascoon

            XD Me too!!!! I had to choose whether we should dress up in public vs dress what feels comfy

    • EarthenWarrior

      Earthen want Corocoro NOWUGH!!!!!

    • Wes

      I took mine a couple months ago while I had a virus. My mom wouldn’t let me take the make-up test, so I didn’t get the score I wanted. :/

      Hope you did well though!!

    • My school allowed all the students to take the ACT for free. I got a 29, but I need that 30! lol. I’m planning on retaking it sometime soon! I think we’re going to have to at least wait until Monday for CoroCoro leaks. :L

  • Just in case I’m doing this wrong, a spanish ditto should work for Masuda Method, correct?

    • Chicolombia

      As long as it’s foreign from your regional area yes. So for example if you have a Spanish system, then no, but if you have a North American system then yes.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Everyone on chat needs to be punished

    • Can a mod get rid of this? I don’t think this is relevant to anything in the article or Pokemon, and it’s just trying to bring drama to the comments section for no reason.Sending the pics through the feedback tab would have been a better idea instead of posting here.

      • EarthenWarrior

        I wanted this to stop a long time ago but nobody simply listened

    • Luigi301

      can any mod/admin please delete this comment? i dont think it is fair for someone to take screenshots of things i say on chat and then be posted here

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      I would but I’m powerless in chat

      • EarthenWarrior

        Look I just wanted this to stop, I don’t think that is an extreme request

        • DefensiveBastiodon

          I’m not a chat mod

          • EarthenWarrior

          • DefensiveBastiodon

            Yes. That’s what I don’t understand. I didn’t say I didn’t see the attack.

    Here’s a likely fake pokemon, but I really like the design!

    • 3dsNick

      That a pissed Ralts with Pinsir pinsirs and a bad colour palette :/

      • NintendoPlayer

        Hm… Kind of. Made me think of piccolo lol. I like the looks as it could be bug and fighting. Which could be a pretty good combo outside of X4 to bug.

  • ShinyXatu

    In the case that we are all disappointed by CoroCoro, what in the word would they show? I hear Joe “Serebii” Merrick saying not to expect anything big like starters or legendaries, because last month’s issue didn’t specify “big news”. I beg to differ. They used up two whole pages with giant font, and I’ve heard multiple translators reference a “legendary opening”. The only other material they have so far is Magearna. They’re certainly not going to limit us to its typing for the first feature. I’m still betting on mascot legendaries and, if we’re lucky, starter silhouettes to be revealed next month. That order could probably be flipped as well. I’m extremely excited for this leak, because we’ll get the first glimpse of the games we will spend 500-1000+ hours playing. 😀

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      I expect Trainers and silhouettes. That’s all I want really. And some screen shots.

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        Expecting and wanting are 2 different things. lol I doubt we’ll get the trainers just yet. Maybe the starters,but not both.

        • DefensiveBastiodon

          No, I expect them, and that’s as much as I want them to reveal. I don’t expect box legends and I don’t want box legends.

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Well as long as you know what you want hahaha

          • DefensiveBastiodon

            I want lots of things, like Hugh Jackman and Wolverine to no longer be a woman but I probably won’t get those. As long as S&M have post game content I guess it’s fine. Do you sushi?

          • ShinyXatu

            Box legends have always been revealed either with the announcement of a new generation, or shortly thereafter. I can’t think of a single generation where this didn’t happen. I suppose they could be revealed next month instead and still fit that tradition.

          • DefensiveBastiodon

            I’m okay with them not being revealed until the day the games come out

      • ShinyXatu

        I’m glad you expect those, because they are very important. I’d be okay with those too. I’m just feeling confident that we’ll have at least one new Pokemon reveal as well.

    • TheGreatGuardian

      If you’ve seen Joe’s post on NeoGAF, he thinks it’ll be something movie-related like a new form of Magearna/Volcanion (the latter of whom is the only Kalos legend to not have some form of Alt state like Xerneas’ tree form and neutral mode, Yveltal’s cocoon, Zygarde’s formes, Hoopa Unbound and Mega Diancie).

      Personally, I’m holding out for an explanation of Magearna’s Soul Heart ability, or a few random screenshots a la the first Corocoro issue to cover BW

    • All I want to see is the starters and the region map. Serebii Joe can’t break my determination! 😉

    • NesMeister

      I don’t know, the way information of Sun and Moon reminds me of B/W.

      On the Corocoro issue that came out on February, Zorua, Zoroark were revealed for appearing in the next movie, with no game. Similar situation with Magearna.

      March didn’t reveal anything at all.

      And on April, what was revealed were:
      * The games titles
      * The graphical improvement with screenshots
      * And Zorua and Zoroark in battle.

      So I honestly am not expecting starters or legendaries.
