On the Nintendo Switch, we have the definitive version of Pokken Tournament DX, which is going to send so many of you spiraling down a new funnel of addiction and competition. On the Nintendo 3DS, old-school Pokemon fans are going to spend their weekends starting up brand new adventures in Pokemon Gold or Pokemon Silver.
Pokken Tournament DX
If you're playing Destiny 2 right now, you may want to hold off on Pokken. I, like many of you, have a competitive spark burning in my belly, and Pokken Tournament DX will challenge you right from the beginning to choose a Pokemon and train it to be the best it can possibly be. Of course, in Pokken, you'll train that Pokemon by training yourself. Master its combos, master the countering system, hop online, and prove that you're the very best, like no one ever was.
If you'd like to learn more about Pokken Tournament DX, you can read our full review right here, which concludes in part:
"If you're even remotely interested in Pokemon and fighting games, you don't need to be reading this review. Pokken Tournament has always been a freaking treasure, and this is hands-down the definitive version of the game. I wore out the original, and I can't tell you how glad I am that I can finally play Pokken in bed without worrying about how close I am to my Wii U, and despite the lack of "deluxe" additions, the resolution bump makes for a markedly improved visual experience while playing in handheld mode."
'Pokemon Gold' And 'Silver'
Craving something a little more traditional? Did you lose your crap when Game Freak and Nintendo revealed Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow were coming to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console? Get ready, because the next chapter of Game Freak's beloved series is finally hitting the 3DS for you to pick and up enjoy any time you want.
Nintendo revealed in a recent press release that fans will be getting much more than nostalgic warm and fuzzies when they pick up Gold or Silver on the 3DS, though. Diving back into these classics will actually offer an opportunity to enhance your experience with Pokemon Sun and Moon as well! From the release:
"Also, as a bonus for purchasing one of these great games for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, Trainers will get a code that unlocks the Mythical Pokémon Celebi in their Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game. Or, Trainers can hold on to the code and use it in either of the upcoming Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Ultra Moon games when they launch on Nov. 17. Purchase the Pokémon Gold Version or Pokémon Silver Version game in Nintendo eShop by Jan. 15, 2018, to receive a bonus digital code for a Nintendo 3DS home menu theme inspired by the version you bought."
