[RECAP] October Corocoro, Official Site Update & More

Recap of the week

After almost a week of server issues, we’re back! And hopefully better than ever. As you were all hopefully aware we were using a specially created PokéJungle tumblr in order to deliver you news as quick as possible, and despite having to use a different platform we still got you news faster than other sites! Now that we’re back at our usual home we thought we’d give our readers a recap of what’s happened in the Pokémon World of the last week…

Special Broadcasts & Announcements

  • The Pokémon Company announced that on Monday 16 September they have a surprise announcement for Pokémon fans. It seems as though it’s related to the accidental trailer uploaded to the Official Pokémon YouTube channel earlier this week, advertising the website GottaCatchEmAll.com
  • Pokémon Smash will finish at the end of September. The show will resume airing again under the new name of Pokémon Get☆TV on October 6, and will feature the return of some fan favourite hosts, as well as some new but familiar faces!
  • Pokémon: The Origin will broadcast in Japan on October 2 at 7pm and will run for approximately an hour and 50 minutes, if possible we will provide a live stream of the special broadcast, stay tuned!
  • On September 23 a special broadcast will be made in Japan focusing on the Pokémon X & Y games, XY anime and Pokémon: The Origin. Stay tuned for more details on our coverage of this!

Official Pokémon Site Update

The official update with new information about some of the Pokémon revealed in the recent CoroCoro leak! First, the starter evolutions:

  • Quilladin is the evolution of Chespin “When Chespin evolves into Quilladin, the hard spikes on its body grow even sturdier. Despite its prickly appearance, Quilladin is considered a gentle Pokémon that avoids battle.”
  • Braixen is the evolution of Fennekin “Once Fennekin evolves into Braixen, it no longer eats branches. But it still keeps a tree branch in its tail, which seems to calm the Pokémon.”
  • Frogadier is the evolution of Froakie “Frogadier evolves from Froakie, and when it does, its jumping skill improves. During battle, Frogadier confounds its opponents by leaping about the ceiling or into trees.”

Next, some of the others who were revealed!

  • Furfrou is the mysterious white dog from earlier this month. Its hair can be styled
  • Meowstic, just as Beach’s leaker said
  • Tyrunt is the mini t-rex. It has the Strong Jaw ability
  • Amaura is the Rock/Ice fossil Pokémon. It has the Refridgerate ability
  • Pyroar has distinct gender differences

In addition, a NEW feature has been revealed!

  • Trainer PR Videos allow you to make 10-second clips of you and your Pokémon!
