Booster packs and theme decks are currently available in stores, bringing more than 100 new cards to collect and play with Three new Mega Evolution Pokémon . The expansion features two powerful versions of Mega Charizard-EX (a Dragon-type Mega Charizard X and a Fire-type Mega Charizard Y), in addition to Mega Kangaskhan-EX.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire

It is that time of month where Nintendo reveal the pokemon games they will be releasing in November, which is brilliant as I am always guaranteed a Pokemon game for my birthday! *happy dance* This year Nintendo announced  that Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire will launch worldwide in November 2014, exclusively for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS. Pokémon fans will collect, battle, and trade Pokémon in a new adventure. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are a fresh take on Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, which launched in 2003 and were fan-favourite hits on the Game Boy Advance system. The new titles promise to take players through a dramatic story within a spectacular new world.
