Get out of my dreams, get into my Fennecar ⊟
Toyopet vehicles shown by Toyota at the Tokyo Toy Show. Really cute, though I don’t know how effective Pikachu’s lil’ snout is as a bumper.
TinyCast 038 - Brazen Knuckles
Tiny Cartridge • TinyCast
TinyCast 38! The crew spends this episode chatting about Smash Bros., cosplay Pikachu, Club Nintendo’s Elite rewards, Japan’s third-party direct, and Yokai Watch 2. We also share our impressions on recent releases like One Piece: Unlimited World Red and Squids Odyssey.
Have some cosplaying Pikachus ⊟
What is happening in this Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire artwork? How did we get to a point where Pikachu is dressed as a demure high society lady and a luchador?
This new trailer… doesn’t explain it at all, but does show footage of a trainer petting all these cosplaying Chus in Pokemon-Amie. Plus there’s stuff about the Elite Four, gym leaders, Mega Metagross, Secret Bases, etc., all less important than a Pikachu with big fake eyebrows.
Along with making comics that break my heart, Tiffany works on Steven Universe, which is amazing and coming back soon and I wish there was a non-shady link to the full “Tiger Millionaire” episode I could share with you. You can follow Tiffany’s Tumblr here.
The Simple Life of a Pikachu lamp ⊟
A Dealextreme special, of course. If you want to wake up next to this face, you’ll have to wait, as it’s unfortunately out of stock.
Pokémon Bank now open in North America ⊟
It’s finally here! Just to recap, Pokémon Bank is an eShop app/cloud storage service (with an annual fee) with which you can deposit and withdraw your XY creatures online. It has a companion Poké Transporter app that enables you to upload Pokémon from BW and BW2, so you can import them to XY.
You’ll be able to take advantage of a 30-day free trial before March 14 (same goes for Europe). And you can also get a free Celebi if you sign on before September 30! Image via Bebe.956.
Love this Pikachu bento box ⊟
It might be hard to avoid the Pokeball bento if you’re planning to buy a Poke-themed bento container (easier now since J-List is out of stock), but this three-tiered Pikachu set makes a pretty strong argument. It’s just so sweet, and a bit more practical.
Fun fact: I ordered a bunch of bento stuff earlier in the year, thinking I’d take it on as a hobby and produce beautiful, compact lunches for my wife’s workday. Then the reality of having baby twins happened and postponed that plan for a while…
Hey, you, be a detective with Pikachu ⊟
Remember those GIFs of a new mystery Pokémon 3DS game and evil Pikachu? We now know that project is a detective game in which the electric rodent is your partner. More details from NHK’s Japanese tv program The Professionals, posted by Serebii:
"A rare Pikachu is said to be the enemy within this game, but they can’t see people liking it. The game is to feature a special Blue Pikachu, which talks. The Pikachu is being controlled via motion capture and facial recognition.
All this information is from early development, so it is probable that it will change should the game come out.”
The game is said to have a development cycle of two years, and is expected to release in… 2015.
Frightening peek at the new Pokémon 3DS game ⊟
You might have heard that there’s a Pokémon 3DS game in the works that’s centered around Pikachu and a hero who uses “playfulness” as a weapon.
Japanese TV program Professional—Style of Work will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the game’s development next week, and posted this clip showing a brief glimpse of the project, as well as some terrifying motion capture. Credit to Siliconera for spotting the video!
Pikachu cake molds ⊟
Wondering what to serve when your friends come over to play Pokemon X/Y all day, which I’m sure happens somewhere sometime? Make a Pikachu cake with these silicone molds from J-List.
Here’s an easy way to get a Pikachu 3DS XL ⊟
Just play Pokémon XY with a female trainer, and you should wake up with one of these limited edition systems. Sure, it’s just a virtual handheld, but it’s cheaper than the $300-$500 you’d pay for one on eBay or Amazon.
Our leaked Pokémon XY shots ⊟
Wait, this isn’t Pokémon at all! This is Rune Factory 4, which released for 3DS earlier this week. And we didn’t even take these shots — credit for that goes to Sugarbloodsuckerz.
This isn’t the only video game joke Xseed threw in — here’s another one for a certain Western RPG you might be familiar with. The publisher brought this great item description back from Rune Factory 3, too.
