Posted by | News | No Comments

Nintendo and The Pokémon Company are running a promotion with the release of the 20th animated feature film, Pokémon The Movie: I Choose You. With the provided code below and online access, anyone can obtain a unique hat-wearing Pikachu for their copy of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.

A total of six different hatted Pikachu are available, but you can only obtain one of them. Each hat ties into one that Ash Ketchum wore in various eras of the Pokémon TV show and movies.

Hats will be cycled by date, so the hat (and Pikachu) you receive depends on when you redeem the download code and Mystery Gift.

The first offering provides Pikachu wearing Ash’s cap from their original adventures through the Kanto and Johto regions. Likewise Pikachu’s moveset reflects the moves it would have from that era.

In order to obtain this Gen 1/2 version of Pikachu, you’ll need to redeem the code by September 25.

Here are the instructions:

  1. Open your Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game.
  2. Select Mystery Gift on the main menu.
  3. Select Receive Gift.
  4. Select Get with Code/Password, then Yes, then Yes again to connect to the internet.
  5. Enter the code PIKACHU20.
  6. Watch as you receive your Pokémon.
  7. Speak to the delivery person in any Pokémon Center to receive your Pokémon.
  8. Be sure to save your game.

Here are Pikachu’s stats:

Level: 1
Nature: Hardy
Gender: Male
Ability: Static
Moves:

  • Thunderbolt
  • Quick Attack
  • Thunder
  • Agility

If you want a different hat-wearing Pikachu, you’ll need to wait until after September 25. No details have been revealed about the other five still to come.

The last batch of downloadable Mega Stones are also available. Follow the above instructions and enter the code DRACHE to receive Mega Stones for Ampharos, Altaria, Latios, and Latias for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. You have until October 31 to redeem the Mega Stone code.

Monster Hunter Stories Review

Posted by | Reviews | No Comments

Available On: Nintendo 3DS

The Monster Hunter series has been around for over a decade, though far more popular in Japan than in the US. The world of gigantic monsters, challenging combat, and hours of grinding and crafting weapons and armor often remains impenetrable for many would-be fans.

Monster Hunter Stories refreshingly succeeds at being a more intuitive, kid-friendly spin-off game. It incorporates basic elements of Pokémon’s monster-collecting while still using the core tenets of Monster Hunter’s questing and hunting tasks to create a welcoming, yet deeply rich experience.
