By shaking the Wii Remote, you can shake down your enemies, free coins from treasure bags and even cause in-game earthquakes.

  • New themes this week include:

    • Pokémon Solgaleo/Lunala – Available Nov. 18

Also new this week:


  1. When did swapdoodle become a thing? I don’t remember it ever being mentioned. You’d think a new version of swapnote would be more advertised.

  2. I deleted my demo of Sun/Moon. I don’t trust Ash-Greninja. It might be this gen’s version of Cosplay Pikachu where you put a lot of time & effort into the guy only to find out he’s stuck on the games & can’t be taken off of them. That & I still got my original Froakie, with an awesome nickname, who I got evolved to Greninja. So unless it turns out he can be taken to the next gen of mainline Pokemon games and I can also change his name, fuck ‘im.

    1. Wait, why did you delete your demo? Should I delete my demo? I haven’t played it yet, is there something I am missing?

      1. I missed the damn event with the damn cop. Because of that, I got bored of the demo & deleted it. I knew the fact we had to wait days to actually have something worthwhile to do in the demo would eventually make me lose interest.

        1. Did you pick up your copy of Sun/Moon yet? It’ll be interesting because until Bank gets updated in January, no one will be able to transfer their old Pokémon over, which means everyone’s on a level playing field until then, at least competitively speaking.

          1. Nope. I canceled my preorder & decided to wait a bit, either for an inevitable price cut, PokeBank to become available, or the release of a 7th Gen Mythical Pokemon over wi-fi or GameStop event. My wife offered to buy me something for Christimas, though, so I might just have her buy Moon for me. Of course, I probably won’t actually play it til January when I can transfer some of my Pokemon under level 10 from Omega Ruby to it using PokeBank. I think I want my first journey into a new Pokemon gen to be with a party of Eeveelutions that I can raise from the ground up.

  3. sorry but competitive play is what the older trainer that are old enough to be parents do which hurts players like me
