Someone in the Pokemon megathread on Something Awful wanted to play through Yellow with only the worst Pokemon available in that game, and someone else suggested being a renegade bad guy and only using Team Rocket pokemon. This inspired me! I recently played through Alpha Sapphire in Spanish as a challenge (my Spanish skills are, um... poor), and sent over the team I'd use the whole game in eggs, and it was actually a lot of fun having my team assembled from the beginning.

Here's what Team Flare grunts can have in X or Y: Houndour, Zubat, Gulpin, Electrike, Scraggy, Croagunk, Poochyena, and Purrloin. Eugh. Suggestions? I think I should probably keep my starter, as "the first Pokemon I got after leaving Team Flare"... should I have a dedicated HM-user too? Can I keep the Kanto starter that Professor Whoever will give me?

Also, uh, can anyone produce Zubat eggs who'll hatch with Luxury Balls? Caught myself a pair of Zubat in Alpha Sapphire, so I'm good for Zubat. I think the rest of my team will be [Starter], [Zubat], Gulpin, Electrike, Scraggy, ...something. I don't really like Froakie, but I'll need something that can learn Surf and Waterfall...

Players in Europe and Australia can now download a Meowth with the move Happy Hour in XYORAS by entering "HAPPY" into Mystery Gift. Happy Hour is an events Pokemon-exclusive move that lets you double the amount of money you earn at the end of battle, and it stacks with Amulet Coin/Luck Incense and O-Powers.

Amendment to the previous post about the 20th anniversary Mew: the newsletter only applies to people in NA.

HOWEVER, everyone else can grab the same Mew (again, only if you didn't already get it in February) using the code MEW2016.

P.S. Don't forget to grab your Manaphy while you're at it.

If you're like me and missed out on Mew in February, you now have a chance to get it again by signing up for the Pokemon Trainer Club newsletter before June 1.

This is only available if you didn't get Mew the first time.

Hey folks, it's been a while! This is cutting it close because the Zygarde event ends TODAY but better late than never!

Basically though, these are the Pokemon you can get on XY and ORAS for the next couple of weeks via Internet:

April 29th 2016 - May 8th 2016 (Zygarde)
May 11th 2016 - May 17th 2016 (Shiny Xerneas)
May 20th 2016 - May 26th 2016 (Shiny Yveltal)

Diancie is available for X/Y if you go to Gamestop/GAME/JB Hifi and grab the serial code.

As for the Eon Ticket (which people familiar with Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald might be familiar with as the method to unlock Latios and/or Latias), its distribution method for ORAS will be unique in that the primary way to get it will be if you get lucky on Streetpass. If you manage to Streetpass with someone who has it, you'll receive a copy yourself.

There's a new Pokemon for download in all regions right now. This Pumpkaboo holds a Rocky Helmet, knows Trick-or-Treat and Scary Face, and has the Hidden Ability, Insomnia (which Super Size could not have). Pick it up and evolve it, and maybe you can enter the Trick-or-Treat battle comp that's coming up!

The Pokeball pattern Vivillion is now available for download for European/Australian players! You have until September 9th, so be quick.

As for American players, you can download a Heracross (Pokemon X) or Pinsir (Pokemon Y) until September 17th. There is a chance to get their respective Mega Stones from Gamestop as well, but I believe it is only until August 31st, so there's not a lot of time left for that one.

Oh right, someone mentioned that this special Vivillon is out! In the US only, until August 12th, so this is an EXTREMELY LIMITED TIME OFFER.

Yooooo, this special Vivillon will be available for download in all regions from July 8 to July 31. It will come with the exclusive move Hold Hands, which ... doesn't seem to do anything, but it looks pretty.
