Two new Nintendo 3DS themes have been released in Japan for Team Rocket and Team Galactic. Players can pledge their allegiance to either by purchasing them for ¥200 ($1.99 / £1.79 / €1,99 upon international release within the next few months).

You can watch trailers for the Team Rocket Theme or Team Galactic Theme by following the links 🙂

What do you think? Ready to enlist? The Team Rocket music might just make it worth the purchase for me…

    Can I has Team Flare variants prease?

  • cyruslookinmadcreepy

    before everyone jumps up and says “diamond and pearl remakes!!!!” note that this is part of japan’s villains merch release, they likely put galactic to acknowledge the anniversary today, or because they plan to post these in pairs (next time: aqua/magma, then flare/plasma, they couldn’t do just team rocket/aqua and then magma/galactic, splitting up the real pair)

    • TigerMasku

      Sinnoh not confirmed

      • Shemar Corbin

        we have been getting a lot of hints, so there’s a possible chance of DP Remake happening in 2017

    • FairiesInferno

      One more hint and you’ll be eating those words :p

    • SixthSun

      They honestly could do the two versions of Team Plasma instead.

    • Akiran Drake (Nightshade)

      Yea, I really hope the Plasma and Flare look cool.

  • Wes

    Team Rocket recruits unite!

  • Ithsme
    • Ultron

      Shady brought it up earlier

  • TigerMasku

    Had they put a Jessie and James theme instead I might have though about it.

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    that honchkrow wow. amazing spectacular

  • EarthenWarrior

    AW YEAH BOIIIIIIIIII
    TEAM ROCKET BLAST OFF AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT!!!

  • EarthenWarrior
  • Ultron

    I’m glad it’s Honchkrow over Weavile. We all know who the boss is.

  • No Mars? She’s the best Galactic member though

    • Ultron

      Yeah, she’s cooler than Saturn, but maybe they didn’t want to have Purugly up there.

      • Exeledus

        and why not exactly?

        • Ultron

          I feel that purugly doesn’t really give off a sinister or intimidating vibe like toxicroak and honchkrow. It just kind looks grumpy. It’s also not a “cool” marketable pokemon honestly.

          • Exeledus

            ok i’ll give you that. you win this time lol

    • Dannsbago

      She’s there, just not on the this specific image. She looks really cute :3 There’s a video on Nintendo Japan’s Youtube Channel.

  • zess

    Going to be getting the new galaxy style 3ds so I’ll get the team galactic theme for that one.

    • Ultron

      I wish the galaxy 3ds had been out early this summer when I upgraded. It’s pretty cool.

      • zess

        I actually found out about it a few days ago and I was like this is the perfect time to update so I should have it by the end of the week.

        • Ultron

          Awesome. It’s a sign! I took it as a sign to upgrade when I found out the XL was only available in two colors, one being red. I’ve had almost every handheld in red and it’s not super common, so I jumped on it.

  • Exeledus

    alright. so a few hours ago I downloaded “Inside” for my ps4 and beat it a few minutes ago. all I have to say is: WTF.

    • zess

      Yea I played it too. Quite a strange game and the ending at least for me was so sad.

  • Golden_Monferno

  • Dannsbago

    Question. Are these drawn by Sugimori?

  • Why must they release so many great themes but only allow for 10 favorites on the 3DS ._.

  • UnburdenedLegume
    • Leo

      I’m surprised you hadn’t seen these fakes by now

    • Shady

      I was post these long time ago.

    • Green

      Really old fakes.

  • Richard Haslam

    Well, it would make sence if you think about it.

    It’s Gen 1’s 20th Anniversary (very soon Gen 2’s as well) – Original games launched on the Nintendo eshop

    It’s Gen 4’s 10th Anniversary – Creating remake, just like the past Gens that had their 10th Anniversary.

    Pokemon has announced their making new games for the NX, so I woudn’t be surprised to see the remake of Gen 4 be on the newer console. And if so, would be the first in a Pokemon Generation to split consoles, and would see it come full circle, just as it has of being the first Pokemon games on the DS. It would also bring more money to the newest console as well. The clues for a Gen 4 remake are there, and my guess, just like Gen 3’s remake, that it’ll be out next year.

    Need I remind you all that Gen 5 was on the DS and now Gen 7 on the 3DS. If it was supposed to be Generations, then Gen 5 should be on the 3DS, Gen 6 on the NX, and Gen 7 on some future console. So whatever the company is doing with gens and consoles, they’ve already messed up!

    • UnburdenedLegume

      No they didn’t

    • Shemar Corbin

      well since sun and moon is going to be on 3ds (maybe nx when nx is released), maybe either we might diamond and pearl remake on 3ds or nx or if nintendo nx have a backward compatibility to plays 3ds games on nx

      • Richard Haslam

        Perhaps the NX will. Although it might have to not be backwards comparable with the DS games, we do not want to get the exact same game twice, seeing that the original Diamond and Pearl came out for the DS and is playable on the 3DS. I think Game Freak understood this, that is why it would make sense of producing it on the NX. Twilight Princess is guilty for having a HD version made for the Wii U, when the original Wii version of the game can be plaid on the system. And yes I am aware that it was suppose to be a Gamecube game, but I didn’t know until I’ve read the walkthrough book. Thought it was a Wii game, and yet still stands to reason of why it’s better having a remake made for a much newersystem with no backwards comparability.

        Only time would tell.

        • Shemar Corbin

          well do you think it’ll be cool if nx has a backward compatibility that plays 3ds games

          • Richard Haslam

            It would, as long as it’s not backwards comparable with DS games and thus leaving Gen 4 and 5 in the dust.

            As a business practice, I’m guessing that in order for the NX to be successful, it’ll have to have it’s own Pokemon game, probably and possibly the remake of Diamond and Pearl in which’ll be exclusive to NX. Having backwards comparability will be heaven for Sun and Moon player to play and trade. Either it will have 3DS backwards comparability or not, I’m unsure. Only time will tell.

          • Shemar Corbin

            sure we already got backward compatibility that plays ds games, a 3ds. I wonder how will you trade pokemons between a 3ds and nx, i don’t know how it works, i got new 3ds xl and i’m probably planning on getting the NX (depending on the price), so how does that work? Please have a Backward compatibility to 3ds game!

          • Richard Haslam

            The Pokemon Sun and Moon games, and/or NX would probably have a system installed in which will allowed trade between Pokemon titles on the NX and the 3DS. There is also Pokemon Bank in which will transfer Pokemon from one game to another. Seeing that the NX is almost revealed, Sun and Moon almost released and Pokemon already at work on the NX, I could see no reason of why they shoudn’t make the two games tradeworthy and/or backwards compatable.

          • Shemar Corbin

            that’s true, also most of the pokemon you have to link trade, which require to trade pokemons to link trade them. Plus it’ll totally be messed up if they don’t include the backward compatibility on there

          • Richard Haslam

            I envision it being a backwards compatable console to the 3DS only. Have Diamond and Pearl remake a NX exclusive so would have a reason to buy, and be able to trade to and fro between Sun and Moon on the 3DS and PureDiamond and DazzlingPearl on the NX.

            PureDiamond and DazzlingPearl are just guess names for it. It could may as well be called DawnDiamond and DuskPearl for all I know.

          • Shemar Corbin

            that good, like you said there no reason they’ll include backward compatibility, but really is that the names you’ll coming up with, how about this “Temporal Diamond” and “Celestial Pearl” or “Spatial Pearl”

          • Richard Haslam

            that could work too

  • Shady
    • Strawberry_Pocky_Moose

      I can’t believe this is actually the new anime. For real.

      I feel like they must be trolling us and eventually they’ll be like ‘nah we were just kidding lolz here’s some real screenshots’.

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Slice of Life anime series are doing really well in Japan, so I get it from their perspective.

        • Strawberry_Pocky_Moose

          It’s not even the change in genre which bugs me so much, it’s the crazy new animation style and noodle-arm character designs – Ash in particular. It looks like someone fused Naruto and Luffy together and then threw in some Adventure Time. Yeugh.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            The animation style looks fine to me. Its different from what I’m used to, but it doesn’t look bad or anything.

      • zess

        I like the new style. I think it offers a greater range of motion and hopefully it will allow battles to be more fluid and epic.

    • Richard Haslam

      Ash is going to have a lot of trouble with his Litten.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Really starting to like Steel types

  • Wes

    Was a time given for the supposed news reveal today? If it’s a video I’d suspect 09:00EST, but I’m not sure what kind of news we’re getting.

    • Shady

      was this confirmed ??….I mean the news, I think no official source confirm this.

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Chinese riddler said it

        • Shady

          I know that but I can’t depend on that it’s an official source by the way.

          Did they talk about when they exactly reveal that?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            He dropped a new image yesterday and added to it that there’s new info coming today

          • Shady

            Some body on 4chan talking about 3 hour left …..did they determine which hour that should beginning?

      • Wes

        It’s not confirmed, but I wanted to know when it would happen if it’s real. That way I won’t get my hopes up if the time passes and we get nothing.

    • Haxford

      I wouldn’t expect news if I were you. The Chinese riddler is not an official source. GameFreak let us know we’ll get info next week, I’d wait until then 🙂

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Not an official source, but they haven’t been wrong about anything they dropped so far. So they either work for Game Freak, or they know someone that does.

  • SpectralSeraph

    Welp….. The remakes are certainly confirmed now

    • Shemar Corbin

      suppose, we might get them in 2017

  • Strawberry_Pocky_Moose

    Sinnoh confirmed!

    #sorrynotsorry

    • Shemar Corbin

      Happy 10th year Anniversary of Diamond and Pearl

  • Pharap

    Neat. I still think the themes are overpriced, but neat.

  • Pharap

    The changes to the website are more noticeable this time around, I like them.

    (Now if only we could do something about that background, my eyes burn every time I look at it. When I say burn, I don’t mean figuratively, I mean it actully makes my eyes water.)

  • Rocke

    Lockstin is gonna have fun with this, LOL. cant wait

    • Superqami
