The yearlong celebration of 20 years of Pokémon continues with the appearance of Mythical Pokémon Darkrai, the launch of Pokémon TCG: XY—Fates Collide and more!
First appearing in Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, the Mythical Darkrai has cast a long shadow over the Pokémon world. The powerful Pitch-Black Pokémon returns for the Pokémon 20th celebration this time via a special distribution event at participating GameStop stores. Pokémon fans can head to participating GameStop locations (or EB Games in Canada and Australia) and receive a free code card while supplies last to receive a Lv. 100 Darkrai for their Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire video game. At PokemonCenter.com, GameStop, and other participating retailers, fans can also find the Pokémon TCG: Mythical Pokémon Collection—Darkrai, which includes two special Pokémon TCG: Generations booster packs and a collectible Darkrai pin.
Darkrai can be seen battling the Legendary Pokémon Palkia in the digitally remastered Pokémon: The Rise of Darkrai, available for download on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon. The movie will also be available on Pokémon TV for two weeks during the month of May. Pokémon TV is available on Pokémon.com and the Pokémon TV app is available on the App Store, Google Play, Roku, Chromecast, and Amazon Fire platforms.
In celebration of the debut of Pokémon the Series: XYZ, three powerful Legendary Pokémon from the Kalos region—Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygarde—can be downloaded via Nintendo Network for Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire video games during the month of May. These Pokémon are all Lv. 100, and know their signature attacks as well as other powerful moves. Each Pokémon will be available via Nintendo Network for one week only:
May 2–8: Zygarde
May 11–17: Shiny Xerneas
May 20–26: Shiny Yveltal
Pokémon TCG: XY—Fates Collide is the latest expansion to the Pokémon Trading Card Game franchise, featuring the powerful BREAK Evolution mechanic. Mega Alakazam-EX sees the future—and shapes it to unify two worlds. The Legendary Pokémon Zygarde arrives in many different Formes to bring order, together with Lugia BREAK, Mega Altaria-EX, and Umbreon-EX. Fates are sealed, and two Pokémon worlds join together in XY—Fates Collide! Booster packs and two theme decks—Sky Guardian and Battle Ruler—are available in stores now, introducing more than 120 new cards to collect and play.
More details can be found at Pokemon.com/20. Fans visiting the site throughout the year will find information about monthly Mythical Pokémon character distributions, retail events, special products, and messages from some of Pokémon’s biggest fans.

Turok: Dinosaur Hunter was a watershed moment for the Nintendo 64. It was a first-person title released somewhat early on in the system's life. By today's standards, the game doesn't hold up all that well. Back when it released, the game was absolutely mind-blowing, especially for being on a console. The things it did for first-person gaming on consoles remain important to this very day. For those of you that weren't around when this title released, you might want to hit up this feature and see just how important the title was!
With over 102k purchases from users, the Humble Friends of Nintendo Bundle has now pulled in over 1 million in revenue. Glad to see so many people jumping in and grabbing this lot of great games. You really can't go wrong with this selection of titles! Thanks to plsburydoughboy for the heads up!
