Japan’s Pokemon variety show Pokenchi is set to feature Pokemon Sun/Moon on July 3 (July 2 in the west). A video for the two games will be shown, and information on new Pokemon will be shared. There’s a chance that Pokenchi will only have content that debuted at E3 as well as what’s coming on July 1 and through CoroCoro, but it might be worth keeping an eye on just in any case.


Update (5/20): Timing of the next update has been announced. News will be shared at the following times:

– 6 AM PT
– 9 AM ET
– 2 PM in the UK
– 3 PM in Europe

Original (5/18): Excitement has been growing within the community of Pokemon fans after the first trailer for Pokemon Sun & Moon was released earlier this month, showing footage of the three new starter Pokemon available in the upcoming games.

The news for the games will continue as today the Japanese Pokemon Twitter has confirmed that brand new information about Sun & Moon will be released on June 2nd 2016. There are no hints yet about what this information might be but fans can be happy knowing that the wait for more news will not be too much longer.


Closing out our Pocket Card Jockey is one last look at the game. Catch a final 85 minutes of footage below.

IGN has more footage available from the just-released Pocket Card Jockey. See some additional gameplay in the video below.

Pocket Card Jockey is made by Game Freak, the developer of the Pokemon RPGs. So it makes sense that the game has references to the well-known series, right? In addition to that, there are nods to Game Freak’s other titles as well as Nintendo, pop culture, and gaming in general. GameXplain looks at it all in the following video:

You’re playing solitaire, managing RPG stats, strategically maneuvering an adorable little stumpy-leg horse. As disparate as these elements seem, they manage to meld into a single cohesive experience with every little initially convoluted wrinkle feeding into another system, looping around and creating a uniquely addictive experience. I haven’t ever wanted to play a racehorse management sim governed by the rules of solitaire, but I’m sure glad I did. I guess what’s most surprising is that some madman somehow crafted these distinct gameplay elements into one of the more engaging 3DS games.

Pocket Card Jockey is arriving on the 3DS eShop in both North America and Europe tomorrow. Polygon now has 24 minutes of footage available of the download – see below.
