If there was one thing the February Nintendo Direct left me wanting more of it was Pokémon. Fear not Pokémon fans we may be in luck, after a string of some cryptic tweets and some creative investigation work we may be in luck.
On February 14 @Junichi_Masuda (he is the composer, director, designer, producer, and programmer. On the Pokémon franchise.) Tweeted out a picture of a Weedle from Pokémon go. It seemed innocent enough, but then the super hardcore Pokémon fans did what they do best.
For the past few weeks people have been speculating, that the 8th gen of Pokémon will be titled King and Queen. A lot of the Pokémon community have dismissed this rumor until @Andrey_Arruda tweeted that same Weedle picture. He looked in to some of the numbers in the picture. First the CP was at 199, on the Pokédex that entry is SlowKing. Second the weight of the Pokémon is 4.16 kg, the Pokédex entry at 416 is Vespiquen. The picture also showed there were 226 candies, that was translated in to February 26. That date lines up with the date for the direct of Pokémon Sun and Moon back in 2016.
Could all of these coincidences be just that, coincidence. Or is there really something here only time will tell. What do you want to see from generation 8 Pokémon. Let us know in the comments down below. Also don’t forget to follow the twitter accounts from where I got this awesome information from.
Tetris 99 is the newest installment of this iconic gaming franchise. Tetris has a way of leading the puzzle genre of gaming, from the first VR puzzle game to now the first Battle Royal puzzle game. This installment Tetris puts you up against 98 other players, for a total of 99 players in a room. Tetris 99 is only available to customers of the Nintendo Switch online service, and it’s free. I have been barley able to pull myself away from Tetris long enough to write this up. From the hour I have played I have not waited longer then 30 seconds to get in to a match, and I have not experienced any lag or slow down, I have also never been disconnected or booted out of a game. If you are a fan of puzzle games this is defiantly for you. Also this is a great perk for Nintendo Switch online customers.
