New C-Gear Munna Password

By Aquablast on April 26, 2011

For those who have a Global Link account, buying a copy of the Pokémon Black and White Volume 2: The Official Unova Pokédex & Guide will provide you with a password yielding a Munna C-Gear Skin. This is the same skin which was previously made available for Japanese players last year. While the date of the promotion is currently unknown, it is plausible to conclude that it will begin when the book is released. We found out the password is PGLDR34M.

FALSE Rumor: Unconfirmed Japanese Magazine article shows Pokemon on the 3DS

By DashArmy on April 26, 2011

It was reported that a new Pokemon title for the 3DS would be announced on May 24. From 3DS Blog comes a few poor quality but promising scans of a unknown Japanese magazine with screenshots of Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness, as they showcase Agate Village and the protagonist as well. Considering how close it is to being revealed, keep in mind that this is not confirmed.

This rumor has already been proven false.

New Pokémon Game to be Announced

By AuraKshatriya on April 22, 2011

Dengeki Magazine's most current issue has revealed that it will be announcing a new Pokémon game in it's May 21st issue. Whether this will be the previously mentioned (and in this case of the Wii title, rumored) Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo Wii Pokémon title said to be in development is as of yet unknown. Based on CoroCoro Magazine often revealing the newest Pokémon-related information far before other magazines, it is also plausible that the actual revelation of this new game may come even sooner than May 21st.

Spoiler Alert: 

Information in question written in blue text.

By Yoshi648 on April 12, 2011

Toys 'R Us has the honor of giving the US its first in-store Pokémon event for Black and White. The event will take place from April 27th to May 31st. The Pokémon in question will actually be an egg. The egg will hatch into either an Axew, Pansage, or Pidove (based on the ones belonging to Iris, Cilan, and Ash from the anime respectively). This follows along with the Pokémon anime episode that airs on the 23rd in which Ash receives a Pokémon egg.

For those of you also into the Trading Card Game, while at TRU be on the lookout for special booster two-packs which will also contain a secret card based on one of said three event Pokémon that could hatch from the egg.
