Shoko Nakagawa, the voice actress of Pikachu, shares manga tribute
Voice actress and singer Shoko Nakagawa posted a tribute manga she drew about Pokémon on her Twitter account on June 26. The manga is sure to spark nostalgia in anyone who grew up with the first generation of Pokémon.
The manga depicts a young Nakagawa being enchanted by the original Pokémon games. She was initially torn between Venusaur and Charizard on the Pokémon Green and Pokémon Red game covers, but ended up going with Squirtle as her starter. It also shows her memories of watching the anime and how she cried watching Pokemon: The First Movie. After the movie, she had a touching moment with her grandfather looking out at the night sky, which she still remembers to this day.
Alcremie can produce whipped cream, which becomes richer the happier Alcremie is feeling. Desserts made using this cream are invariably delicious, so many pastry chefs strive to have an Alcremie as their partner. When attacked by an opponent, Alcremie will throw sweet-scented cream to distract them or temporarily blind them, giving itself time to escape.
Ability: Sweet Veil
The cream pouring out of its body hardens when subjected to impacts—the stronger the impact, the harder it becomes—giving Alcremie an impressive resistance to physical attacks. Additionally, the giant “Berry” decorations on Alcremie’s body are as hard as diamonds, and it’s said that most attacks won’t even be able to leave a scratch. Alcremie will launch high-calorie cream missiles around itself to attack its opponents. Any Pokémon that touches this cream will be filled with energy and euphoria but at the same time will fall into a state of complete confusion. Fairy-type moves used by Gigantamax Alcremie will change to G-Max Finale, which will heal all Pokémon on Alcremie’s side while dealing damage to an opponent.
Category: Puppy Pokémon
Weight: 29.8 lbs.
Ability: Ball Fetch
Yamper tends to be drawn to things that are moving quickly. It can chase after people, Pokémon, or even vehicles. It has an organ in its body that generates electricity, and it’s activated when Yamper runs around. Yamper can’t store the electricity it generates, so it’s often seen running around with electric sparks crackling around it. Yamper’s Ability, Ball Fetch, is a new Ability that comes into play when the Trainer throws a Poké Ball at a wild Pokémon but fails to catch it. If Yamper isn’t holding an item, it will fetch the first Poké Ball that failed to catch the Pokémon, regardless of what type of Poké Ball it is.
Category: Coal Pokémon
Weight: 26.5 lbs.
Ability: Steam Engine / Heatproof
Rolycoly’s red eye can illuminate dark areas, while it uses the lump of coal attached to its body like a wheel to move through coal mines and caves. It is able to travel smoothly even over rough terrain. Until about one hundred years ago, every household in the Galar region had a Rolycoly. The families would use the coal that dropped off its body for cooking and heating their homes. Rolycoly’s Ability, Steam Engine, is a new Ability that provides a Speed stat boost if it’s hit with a Fire- or Water-type move during battle.
Category: Alloy Pokémon
Weight: 88.2 lbs.
Ability: Light Metal / Heavy Metal
Duraludon live in caves and mountainous areas. Their two arms have slightly different shapes, and they use them to grind down rock surfaces for food. Its body is composed of incredibly durable metal but is also surprisingly light, so Duraludon can move quite quickly despite its appearance. Its body is susceptible to corrosion, however, and is known to rust easily. They share their habitat with Tyranitar, so these two Pokémon are often seen battling each other in the mountains of the Galar region. Screen 12
As well as new Pokémon, some more natives of the Galar Region have been revealed: Leon
Leon is the strongest Trainer in the Galar region, and he won the Championship in his first-ever Gym Challenge—without being defeated in battle a single time. To this day, his winning streak continues to grow, and his formidable talent for Pokémon battles is unmatched. He’s aided in his countless victories by his partner Charizard, and he’s known to go all out during battles, no matter who he’s facing. His battle style has captured the hearts of the people of Galar.
Rose is the chairman of the Galar Pokémon League and the president of a large business conglomerate. He’s made the Galar Pokémon League famous by implementing Gym Battles featuring the Dynamax phenomenon. Chairman Rose was also the first to endorse Leon for the Gym Challenge.
Oleana is Chairman Rose’s secretary and is known for her calm and collected personality. She also serves as the vice president of Rose’s company and is largely in charge of the day-to-day running of the company.
Bea is a prodigy in Galar karate, carrying on its century-old traditions and techniques. Known for her stoicism and rarely showing her emotions, Bea is also an expert on Fighting-type Pokémon. Her battle style remains very precise even when she’s backed into a corner.
Allister is a talented Trainer of Ghost-type Pokémon who has taken on the mantle of the Ghost-type Gym Leader at a young age. He’s extremely shy and fearful, and he always hides his face with a mask when around other people. Allister rarely makes public appearances and apparently spends most of his time around ruins or in cemeteries.
Certain towns in the Galar region will have different Gyms that Trainers can challenge depending on whether they’re playing Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield. In Pokémon Sword, they will face down Bea, while in Pokémon Shield, they can test their skills against Allister.
The official website for the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Nintendo Switch role-playing games teased a new Pokémon on Friday. The website presents the reveal as a glitch, in which a blurred image of what looks like a green and white Pokémon appears on the right side of the screen. The image moves around the screen when the cursor touches it, then it becomes a clickable link to a "glitched" page where information is partially blurred out.
The website reveals that the Pokémon is a Fighting-type that weighs 257.9 lbs. and has the Steadfast ability. The Pokémon's description states: "Only ___ that have survived many battles can attain this ___. When this Pokémon's ___ ___ers, it will retire from combat." (The ___ denotes blurred words.) On the games' official Japanese website, the glitched page teases that the Pokémon's Japanese name ends with "naito" (night or knight).
New Pokemon hint - I assume it's a homage to MissingNo
ton of fan art. I leave it to you guys and gals to share them
Interesting speculation on possible related lore behind the creation
This may be a reference to various paintings from the 13th and 14th centuries, which show armed knights fighting snails. A famous example is Knight v Snail V: Revenge of the Snail (from the Smithfield Decretals, southern France (probably Toulouse), with marginal scenes added in England (London), c. 1300-c. 1340, Royal MS 10 E IV, f. 107r), shown below.
The starter Pokémon in the games' new Galar region will be Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble. The previously revealed new Pokémon in the games will also include Wooloo, Gossifleur, Eldegoss, Drednaw, Corviknight, the Legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta, Alcremie, Yamper, Rolycoly, Duraludon, Galarian Weezing, Galarian Zigzagoon, Galarian Linoone, Obstagoon, Morpeko, Cramorant, Polteageist, Sirfetch'd, and Galarian Ponyta. Several Pokémon will get new Gigantamax forms, including Pikachu, Meowth, Eevee, Charizard, Butterfree, Drednaw, Corviknight, and Alcremie. New features will include Dynamax and Max Raid Battles, Gigantamax forms, Poké Jobs, the Battle Stadium, Surprise Trades, and Pokémon Camp.
I'm avoiding all leaks and controversy. I did see the #thankyougamefreak and find it a good thing since there were so much negativity. I get why people are passionate and wants things. It's not worth it if you harass others.
Caffeinated Master Menos: Back after my job had me laid off and ended up having to relocate afterwards. Your usual updates will return from here. Thank you Taka for your help as always.

Taka: I was going to comment more. I have to write up my daily reports. I got a 2nd job, it's a temporary job online regarding social media and COVID-19 outreach towards an ethnic community. I woke up at a weird time but I slept more than 10 hours due to feeling

Old Man Dream: So.... dragging my heels for another 2.5 weeks before Ralph Breaks the Internet is available on Disney+? Yay!
Nov 25, 2020 3:22:00 GMT
Taka: Really? Disney is slow to add the stuff that already got released. Same goes for DC Universe. Then DC UNiverse got converted into a comic only app. Well, Disney has more success. I think the other streaming sites are trying to hold on for money too.

Old Man Dream: Ralph Breaks the Internet is on Netflix. One of the remaining Disney movies that have yet to hit Disney+ because of prior streaming agreements Disney had in place before launching their streaming site.
