Pokemon X

A professional game hacking company, via cheat codes, has unlocked Mega Evolutions and shiny Pokemon for Pokemon X/Y. Since we’re dealing with sensitive material, more information, images, and a video can be found after the break.

CoroCoro will be offering Charizard to Pokemon X/Y players next month.

Through the distribution event, those playing Pokemon X can receive Charizard holding Charizardite Y. Pokemon Y players, on the other hand, will earn a Charizard holding Charizardite X.

CoroCoro’s distribution works much like the Garchomp event last year. Readers will receive a serial code which can then be used to obtain the Pokemon.


Now that Pokemon Bank is out in the wild, Pokemon X/Y players can receive a free Celebi once they use the application. But how do you go about getting your free Pokemon?

Here’s a quick, handy guide:

1. Download Pokemon Bank from the eShop
2. Insert Pokemon X/Y game cartridge/keep downloaded version on your system
3. Purchase a free 30-day pass if you haven’t done so previously
4. Put one of your Pokemon into the bank
5. Boot up Pokemon X/Y and select “Pokemon Link” (receive your free miles or battle points)
6. Launch Pokemon Bank and receive Celebi
7. Boot up Pokemon X/Y once more and select “Pokemon Link” again, receive Celebi

That’s all! Pretty simple, no? Try Pokemon Bank before December and you can receive Celebi by following the steps above.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.

After a month-long delay, Nintendo’s Pokémon Bank app is finally available on the European and Australian 3DS eShop. For the low price of absolutely nothing (plus a subscription fee), those in PAL regions can now transfer their beloved Rattatas from the fifth generation Pokémon titles to Pokémon X/Y.

Will the popularity of the application cause the eShop to crash yet again? Will Pokémon Bank also make it to the American eShop this week? Will my internet connection ever be stable enough to actually download the bloody thing? Stay tuned to Nintendo Everything for more details.

Pokemon X/Y will be down for maintenance  once again next Monday (Tuesday in Europe). Online play, rankings, and other features will be unavailable between 4 PM PT and 12 AM PT. Here’s hoping these maintenance periods are paving the wave for Pokemon Bank’s launch in the west!


Pokemon X/Y makes a number of changes to the core Pokemon experience fans have become accustomed to. One of these modifications pertains to the Exp. Share item.

This time around, Exp. Share is a key item. All Pokemon participating in a battle also receive 100 percent of the experience while the creatures who are left out still earn 50 percent.

Game Freak director Junichi Masuda spoke about the new approach to experience sharing while speaking with Game Informer this month. He said:

There are so many Pokemon living in the Kalos region, you can encounter a different Pokemon just about every time you go into the tall grass. We wanted players to try raising lots of Pokemon, which is why we changed how the Exp. Share item worked. Of course, we also made it so players could turn off the Exp. Share and still enjoy the game if they wanted to.


A quick heads up for the Pokemon X/Y players out there: online maintenance will be taking place for the two games on Monday. Online play, rankings, and other aspects will be affected for a six hour window.

Here’s the official rundown of Pokemon X/Y’s imminent maintenance:

From Monday, January 27, 2014 4:00 PM to Monday, January 27, 2014 10:00 PM Pacific Time (6pm to midnight Eastern) / From Tuesday, 28 January 2014 00:00 to Tuesday, 28 January 2014 06:00 UK time (01:00 to 07:00 Central Europe)
Affected Services:

Online Play, Rankings, etc. for Pokémon™ X, Pokémon™ Y
