How does it feel being the new Pokémon Champion? ⊟
16 days, 7 hours, 45 minutes, and 33 seconds later, it’s finally over.. There’s a lot of fanart commemorating the end of Twitch Plays Pokémon, but this one from Kiyokon is my favorite.
Carry a Klefki with you ⊟
One of the weirdest creatures introduced in XY, Klefki, which is a dang set of keys, is something real world people — not just Pokemon people — can put in their pockets now.
Tony Sarkees (maker of the Ace Attorney and Tiny Cartridge 3DS XL cases) put 20 of these Klefki keyrings on Etsy earlier today. Unsurprisingly, they’ve all been sold already — I mean, it’s got immunity to Poison and Dragon, come on. No way that was going to stay in stock for long.
Pokemon Battle Trozei trailer ⊟
I tried to watch some videos of the original Pokemon Trozei to see how this differed, but man there seemed to be a lot of modes in that game and I’m not sure any of them were what we’re seeing here.
Anyway, thanks for coming to Tiny Cartridge, where you know you can always count on well-researched articles!
Rumor: Get Pokemon XY free when you register a 3DS and game with Club Nintendo next month ⊟
No need to murder your parents, kids — despite the promises of the disembodied fish in this comic from Jeremy Kaye (Up and Out / Patreon). It looks like Club Nintendo US has a fun promotion coming up, according to a convincing Toys R Us advertisement posted at Go Nintendo.
The way the purported promotion works, you can get a free digital copy of Pokemon X or Y when you register a 3DS/2DS/XL on Club Nintendo some time in March along with one of six first-party games:
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf
- Yoshi’s New Island
- Lego City: Undercover
- Super Mario 3D Land
- Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
- Mario Kart 7
Yay, so all you moms and dads out there can sleep easy… For now.
You would think we’d have posted about Twitch Plays Pokemon by now, the madness that’s engrossed hundreds of thousands of people, all prostrated to the almighty Helix Fossil.
I tried watching it for 20 minutes, during which I just saw Red unable to navigate his way out of a Pokemon Center, repeatedly accessing a PC until he released CCC the Hitmonlee.
After all that despair, I decided to cheer myself up by going back to playing Dangonronpa.
Meet the new Pokemon Diancie ⊟
The Pokemon Company has now officially revealed Diancie, the new “Mythical Pokemon” that will be given away… somehow.
“Known to boast the greatest beauty in all the world, Diancie’s body glitters pink, captivating the hearts of many,” according to a press release. It’s pretty beautiful for a rock in a dress, I guess?
Obviously, by the way, Diancie is Rock/Fairy type. Since it’s basically half fairy and half rock.
"Is Gengar Clefable’s shadow?" ⊟
Also, are they secretly characters from Street Fighter Alpha 2? This neat — if slightly out-of-sync — GIF comes from ChipSprites, who was inspired by the theory that Gengar is the shadow of Clefable. I’m told XY's introduction of the Fairy-type (Clefable's type) disproves one key argument for this theory, as it now allows them to damage each other, when previously they couldn't with STAB moves due to immunities.
So is this how you use Pokémon Bank? ⊟
You just put any animal into a box, and it gets uploaded to a cloud, right? And then decades from now your grandkids will be able to download the creature and play with it? Online features on the 3DS are always so peculiar..

Pokemon Bank online in Europe and Australia ⊟
For everyone who asks “what about Europe” when we post a new game release, here you go. Pokemon Bank is now online in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, officially marking the end of the eShop-destroying Pokemon Financial Crisis in those territories. Japan and Asia have had the service for a while, and we Slowkings in North America are still waiting.
According to Celebi, the free 30-day trial period is “redeemable until March 14th 2014.” Get on that! But… don’t destroy the eShop again!
Nintendo picked the wrong blue Pokémon for Super Smash Bros. ⊟
Lucario, I’m real happy for you, but Greninja was one of the best Pokémon starter evolutions of all time (shout-outs to Froakie / I see you, Frogadier).
"The heroic Aura Pokémon, Lucario, joins the battle!! We’ve increased the influence of Aura this time, so a damaged Lucario is truly a force to be reckoned with.
Lucario joined the battle for the first time in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which was released six years ago. The production staff of Brawl worked really hard to expand the character roster—without their efforts, Lucario probably never would have joined the battle.”
We poked Greninja in Pokémon Amie for his reaction to the snub, but he responded "No comment."
Wow, these are nice Pokemon gym badges ⊟
Pick these up from ChinookCrafts when you absolutely must convince strangers that you are a for real Pokemon master. Like I am. You know how people in elementary school used to claim that they had an uncle who worked for Nintendo and they had access to all kinds of unreleased games?
Well, my uncle is a Slowbro and he lets me go visit in the Pokemon world all the time. So last time I was there I captured some ‘mons and took out all the gym leaders. I have the badges to prove it.
TinyCast 020 - Weeaboo Justice
Tiny Cartridge • TinyCast
TinyCast 20! Some very serious topics in this latest podcast episode: Pokemon XY's implied transgender trainer, Bravely Default's unacceptable “censorship,” and … anime soccer. If social justice convos (or people pushing books for you to read) get you grumpy, maybe skip this one?
