New Umihara Kawase title coming to Switch

Well there's a lovely surprise to see at TGS! Over at the Success Corporation booth at Tokyo Game Show 2017, there's a sneaky poster. The poster confirms that a new entry in the Umihara Kawase series is in the works. The blurb on the poster says, “The latest entry in the series!” There's no mention of Umihara Kawase on the poster, but the silhouette is unmistakably hers.

The Mega Melee Online Competition Is Under Way

The battles have begun in the Mega Melee Competition. In this clever competition, Trainers may only use Pokémon that can Mega Evolve. Only one of the Pokémon from your team will enter battle, so pay close attention during the Team Preview and choose your Pokémon wisely! Duplicate Pokémon and items are not permitted. And every Pokémon will be set to Lv. 50 for the duration of the battles.

Registered competitors can battle up to 15 times per day. The competition concludes on Sunday, September 24, 2017, at 23:59 UTC.

If you missed the chance to register and battle in this competition, keep checking the Pokémon Global Link for more opportunities to battle.

Good luck, Trainers!
