Another round of Pokemon GO beta invites have been distributed to those who registered their interest in the United States. If you haven’t received a notice, you’ll need to wait for more invites to be sent out. We’ll let you know if that happens.


I like Pokémon Shuffle’s weekly updates! They’re comfy and easy to play! This week’s update is the same for both the 3DS and mobile versions and adds in a new challenge, letting players catch Kingdra. This battle will run until June 21st.

A few repeat runs have begun as well, featuring Landorus, Uxie, Beedrill, and the Daily Pokémon Challenge (#5). The last of those will change which Pokémon is available daily, starting with Maractus, then moving through Dunsparce, Qwilfish, Durant and Heatmor, before returning to Maractus. All of these challenges except Landorus will run until June 21st. Landorus will run until the 14th, but will also have a higher catch rate each day.

Update: Bumped to the top. We have a few more details about the Pokemon plans for E3.

On Tuesday, Pokemon Sun/Moon will be introduced (June 14). Pokemon GO will be featured on Wednesday (June 15). Guests such as developers will stop by, and there will also be new information and trivia about development that can only be heard here. With Pokemon GO, it will be a developer Q&A.

Also, as a bit of an aside, a local Niconico stream in Japan will be held on Thursday. This will summarize the contents of Pokemon’s presence at E3.

Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3 2016 will heavily feature Zelda Wii U later this month. However, as it turns out, that won’t be the only game on the broadcast.

The official Japanese Twitter account for Pokemon confirms that Pokemon Sun/Moon and Pokemon GO will be included in the Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3 2016 live stream. We don’t know what exactly will be shown, but this is rather interesting news!


Update (6/1): The rewards are now live! You can check them out below, or redeem your coins for them at

Three new Miitomo rewards will be added to My Nintendo tomorrow. According to a Japanese newsletter, these items will be available:

Star Outfit: 200 Platinum Coins
Animal Slippers: 200 Platinum Coins
SNES T-Shirt: 200 Platinum Coins

Although this news originated from Nintendo’s Japanese newsletter, the rewards should be going up in North America and Europe tomorrow based on precedent. We’ll let you know if we hear otherwise.


Both the iOS and Android versions of Miitomo have been updated to a new version, 1.2.3. The app pages note that this version “implemented feature improvements,” so it is most likely a stability patch.
