Pokemon X/Y players in Japan will soon have the opportunity to obtain Wobbuffet. The creature will be available through the Pokemon Tretta arcade game.

Here’s the full rundown of the upcoming Wobbuffet event, courtesy of Serebii:

A new Pokémon X & Y event has been announced for Japan. This event ties in with the Pokémon Tretta arcade game. In the new set, there is a specific Wobbuffet Tretta (either Normal or Super Class) and, if you take it to either the World Hobby Fair on January 19th, 25th, 26th/February 2nd/9th or to the Pokémon Card Battle Festa on December 15th/23rd, you have the opportunity to use that Tretta in a special machine. When you do so, this sends out the signal for you to download Wobbuffet onto Pokémon X & Y. Once done, the Tretta is replaced by a blank Tretta puck and cannot be used in the arcade game again.

In Pokemon X/Y, a blue pentagon can be seen next to your Pokemon while viewing the status screen in trades, the box, and so on. It was initially unclear what it was intended for, but we now have an answer.

Game Freak included the pentagon as a hack checker of sorts. Pokemon who have the pentagon are confirmed to be legitimate. If the creature doesn’t have the blue icon, that means there was an error and it has been hacked.

The Pokemon Company’s simple definition of the pentagon is that the Pokemon is okay to use.

Pokemon X and Pokemon Y have collectively become the fastest-selling Nintendo game in Australia. The two titles sold over 100,000 units in its first weekend, surpassing Black/White’s 80,000 first week sales. Impressively, that number was achieved in a single day.

The Pokemon Company has finally released official artwork for the various Mega Evolutions in Pokemon X/Y. You can find the gallery below.

Hitoshi Ariga, perhaps best known for his work on the Mega Man manga series, has revealed his involvement with Pokemon X/Y.

Ariga worked on several creature designs for the two games. Pangoro, Inkay, Malamar, Honedge, Doublade, Aegislash, Tyrunt, Tyrantrum, Amaura, and Aurorus are all Ariga’s creations.

Ariga wrote in a new deviantART post, “the Pokemon art director, Sugimori, had taken notice of some of my past work and that’s why he asked me if I’d be interested in doing some design work for Pokemon XY.”

So in some ways, designing Pokemon for XY was like an extension of my days of drawing monsters for “ActRaiser 2” and “Beyond Oasis”. I am a Pokemon Trainer as well as an illustrator, so needless to say I was incredibly honored and pleased to have this opportunity.
