Well, THIS is a much better Pokémon game reveal than the last one. Just now being posted on the official Japanese Pokémon site, a new 3DS Pokémon title has been confirmed. What we have here is something like a "sequel" to Pokémon Rumble (called Pokémon Scramble in Japan), a WiiWare title: Super Pokémon Scramble. It is currently slated for a release date just this next month, on July 28th.
The game's announcement was actually leaked earlier this morning, on Shellspider. The game will arrive at 4,800 yen, which means it's a full priced retail game unlike Pokémon Rumble, which was not. It's hard to say whether this game will feature anything more than first and fifth generation Pokémon based on the screens, but the previous Rumble game only had first and fourth generation Pokémon. The game has local multiplayer between two people but otherwise the game is for one person. The announcement article doesn't say too much about the game aside from that, but if more comes we'll update this article. Some rumors did indeed leak out regarding this game, but a couple of the things contradict with the information we know now, such as the release date.
Anyways, this game is probably what CoroCoro had in store, so expect a thorough blowout by at least June 15th when the next issue hits the selves.
AR Stickers Galore!
Thanks to everyone's help we already finished getting AR Stickers for every single Pokémon for the 3D PokéDex on the 3DS the other day! As a recap, the way those stickers work is you go to the camera-mode in the Dex and you simply scan the code to unlock the sticker. For legendaries (aside from Kyurem, Landorus, Thundurus and Tornadus) all you'll need to do is scan the sticker to unlock the full model. For all other Pokémon, scanning the sticker just gets you the sticker and the silhouette. Now, if you unlock that silhouette, the probability of you unlocking that Pokémon in the daily SpotPass gifts (three Pokémon given away) is increased. Of course, if you can multiple stickers your chances are split among those, so we recommend only scanning a couple at a time.
