  1. Welcome to the eighty-first week of my Pokémon feature here on Game Podunk! In case you missed last week's, check it out. Stay tuned for future entries coming every Friday. Victini will be available via the Nintendo Network until September 24th. Every single Mythical Pokémon will be distributed during a specific month for the remainder of this year. Now may be your only chance for a really long time, to actually catch them all! -------------------------------- Untold Stories As you“re reading this, I“m probably several hours into Dragon Quest VII on 3DS. I contemplated calling this week“s feature “Farewell”, because the world may never see me again. You know it. I know it. And Game Freak knows it, which is why they decided to release Pokémon Sun & Moon two months after the fact—I“m totally the reason for that. Yup! All jokes aside, some of the biggest news of this week happened outside of the main games. I“ll cover a bit of GO stuff, first: “The Buddy System”, as I“m affectionately calling it, went live just days ago. With it, you can figuratively have your critters walk with you like they would have in Pokémon HeartGold & SoulSilver. Here“s my canonical ten-year-old Pikachu, who will eventually sit on my shoulder in my profile after I walk ten kilometers with her. Nice Easter Egg there, Niantic. The “problem” with the Buddy System had to do with expectations versus reality, I think. When this stuff was leaked, plenty of folks assumed it would replace the “need” to find rarer Pokémon like Dratini multiple times over, because you could walk with one and get candy. A lot of folks were dismayed to find that Pokémon like Dratini require 5km of walking to earn just one candy. Uncommon Pokémon, like the Kanto starters, require 3km. And critters like Pikachu and Magikarp only require 1km. So, with the example of Dratini Candy in mind: in order to evolve my Dragonair into a Dragonite, without ever capturing another Dratini from this day forward, I would need to walk 385 kilometers or 239 miles. As it stands--the Buddy System isn“t designed to replace hunting, it“s designed to supplement it. I think it would have been fairer to make the requirements 1km/2km/3km instead of 1km/3km/5km, but...that“s just me, I guess. It still sparked a relatively renewed interest in the app, anyway. Back in late 2013, the short Pokémon Origins anime made ways within the community. This four episode mini-series [watch here] was a departure from the long-running anime, instead choosing to tell the story of Pokémon Red & Blue, through the eyes of Pokémon Trainer Red. It stayed remarkably true to the games, often echoing the script entirely, and only embellished on points that made the most sense to the story being told. They made Mr. Fuji—the guy in Lavender Town that gives you the Poké-Flute—one of the scientists responsible for creating Mewtwo. Other than that, it was like watching the Game Boy games come to life! Told you that to tell you this: on Tuesday, The Pokémon Company officially announced Pokémon Generations, a follow-up to the Origins spin-off that, rather than focusing on Red & Blue, encompasses all six generations of Pokémon. ! I“m really, really looking forward to seeing how they handle each game“s narrative—especially since we see Giovanni in the same appearance he took on from his . If you got the Event Celebi from those days, you could be transported back into the past--whereupon you fight Giovanni as Gold, and learn that your rival is actually his son. It was a really nice touch--one that they“ll probably expand upon in the new anime. If you“re as interested as I am--it“s set to debut today! So check out the official Pokémon YouTube channel. Last but not least: CoroCoro revealed the evolution of Rockruff, that cute dog Pokémon. Turns out, it“ll evolve differently depending on if you have Sun or Moon. There“s no English reveal yet, so we can only go on the Japanese translations of “Midday” and “Midnight” formes of its evolution, Lugarugan. Is this the first time a specific evolution has been gated behind owning a certain version of the game? That about covers it, this week. Has the Buddy System renewed your interest in Pokémon GO at all? Excited for Generations, or does it just bounce right off you? Be sure to let us know!
