A video has emerged showing Hoopa Unbound’s Hyperspace Fury move. Check it out below.

This month’s issue of CoroCoro has more Pokemon news, much of which pertains to Hoopa.

Hoopa Unbound’s signature move is “Hyperspace Fury”. The Pokemon changes form in-game through the Prison Bottle that is obtained from a clerk in the PokeMart after fulfilling specific conditions.

We have a tiny update on The Archdjinni of the Rings – Hoopa as well. According to CoroCoro, Mega Latios and Mega Latias will be present in the film.


This month’s issue of Nintendo Dream has a lengthy interview with some of the folks responsible for the Pokemon games. The magazine chatted with Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire director Shigeru Ohmori, Ken Sugimori (art director), Shigeki Morimoto (battle director), Kazumasa Iwao (game designer).

Some of the most interesting comments came about when the interview focused on the topic of Mega Evolutions. Nintendo Dream asked about things like criteria for Mega Evolutions, why Slowbro was chosen to go through the process rather than Slowking, and more.

Head past the break for our full translation of Nintendo Dream’s Pokemon Mega Evolution discussion.

The Pokemon Company announced today that GameStop will be kicking off a Dragonite distribution next month. Those who own Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire or X/Y can obtain the creature between June 22 and July 12 at the retailer’s U.S. locations. When you visit GameStop, you’ll be provided with a special code card.

Dragonite comes with moves including Dragon Dance, Extreme Speed, Outrage, and Hurricane. The Pokemon is at level 55 and also appears to be holding a Lum Berry.

Bundles for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Xenoblade Chronicles 3D are making their way to Europe on June 26th, Nintendo UK just revealed via their Twitter account.

Not only do the bundles come with corresponding faceplates for each of their respective games, but they also have a special home menu theme included as well!

Note that Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire come pre-installed while Xenoblade Chronicles 3D comes with a physical copy of the game, presumably due to the large size of the game.

Mega Flygon is something that could have existed… had it not been for artist’s block.

That nugget of information was shared in the latest issue of Nintendo Dream, which features an interview with Game Freak’s Ken Sugimori, Shigeru Ohmori (Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire director), Shigeki Morimoto (game developer), and Kazumasa Iwao (Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire map designer).

Sugimori’s specifically shared the following:

Sugimori: For Aarune, he needed to have a Pokemon that could use the moves Fly and Secret Power, which are perfect moves for finding Secret Bases. And the only Hoenn Pokemon that wasn’t used by a key character that fit that criteria was Flygon. It does not Mega Evolve, but I really like Flygon.

Interviewer: Key characters often carry a Pokemon that can Mega Evolve, but Flygon is an exception, right?

Sugimori: Flygon has had the potential to have a Mega Evolution since XY, but we were unable to complete a design and so it was dropped from consideration.


New updates are now available for the mainline Pokemon 3DS games.

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire have been updated to version 1.4. Meanwhile, Pokemon X and Y have received a 1.5 patch.

According to the update details, “adjustments have been made for an improved gaming experience”. You’ll need these new versions in order to trade, battle, and use other online features.


The Pokemon Company has sent out a new set of screenshots for Hoopa Unbound in Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. View the images below.

Today, The Pokemon Company properly unveiled Hoopa Unbound, a new form of the Mythical Pokemon Hoopa.

Here’s what you should know about the creature:

Hoopa Unbound is the new and truest form of Hoopa, which until now has had its power sealed away. The rings Hoopa Unbound carries have the power to bend dimensions and are said to allow it to seize anything in the world. After its transformation, Hoopa Unbound is far larger than it was in its previous form, with six huge arms and a greater number of its signature dimension-bending rings.

We also know that Hoopa Unbound has the following stats:

Category: Djinn Pokémon
Type: Psychic/Dark
Height: 21’04” [6.5 m]
Weight: 1,080.3 lbs. [490.0 kg]
Ability: Magician

Hoopa, the 720th Pokemon in the Pokedex, can’t be met under normal circumstances in Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. However, information about how to meet Hoopa will be shared in the future.

Updates are out now for Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire and Pokemon X/Y.

For Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, players can download version 1.3. This is to address bugs and improve the game experience. You’ll need it to use online features. Note that it takes up 271 blocks of space.

Pokemon X/Y’s new version is 1.4. Like Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, it’s intended for bug fixes and to improve the game experience. The download is 246 blocks and is needed to access online features.
