Hey there! So you know that Icarus and Skulldog donated some wonderful prizes for the marathon! But did you know they’re helping motivate people to donate? It’s true!

Icarus is taking commission slots RIGHT NOW for people who donate! Sign up for a slot, donate, e-mail him the proof, get a commission! If you give a little more, he’ll even mail you the original art! Wow!

Skulldog has made a post on DeviantArt saying she’ll take a Pokémon art request when he hit a milestone! If you’re on DA, leave a comment of what Pokémon you’d like to see drawn, and maybe yours will be chosen! Yay!

I’m in no way in charge of this. These people are doing this purely out of the goodness of their hearts. So donate! Show them some love! Comment on their stuff! And if you know of anyone who’s putting up similar motivations, let me know! I’ll add them to the list!

Early Donations for Pokemon Starters and Trainers

You can now donate to ACT Today to reserve a name for a trainer and/or starter for our upcoming Pokemon marathon.  Trainers will cost $25 and starters $50 with a character limit of 10. The donate button is on the  right hand side of the webpage. After you donate you will have the option to leave a comment which is where you can write  the name of the trainer or Pokemon you want and its nickname. Underneath the donation button you  can see which trainers and starter Pokemon are still available to name. If for some reason two people donate around the same time and the Pokemon or starter is taken, we will have to move your nickname to another Pokemon or starter. We will email you to work out what you would like to switch to.

If you are not able to leave a comment after you donate, send an email to comments@thespeedgamers.com.

New 3DS Color, Pokémon Game

A new 3DS color will be reaching Japan on July 14th, Flare Red.
It’ll be joining the ranks of the classic muscle car-esque paint job of the Aqua Blue and suave, classy look of Cosmo Black. As with it’s bretheren, this color sports the tri-tonal appearance although it blends together better if you ask me.

Now if only it were red and white to match the tone of this next story- a Pokémon Rumble sequel has been announced for the 3DS.Titled Super Pokémon Scramble(Rumble for everywhere but Japan), it’ll let you continue collecting and battling pocket monster wind up toys just like in the WiiWare hit but with the inclusion of Pokémon from Generation V, otherwise known as Black and White versions.

Also new to the series is the introduction of Spot Pass support for features yet unannounced, and multiplayer battles via Wi-Fi Connection. It’s hitting Japanese shelves July 28th, with neither this nor the Flare Red 3DS being confirmed for international release.

eShop to Include Free 3D Classic Excitebike and Pokédex 3D

Nintendo’s 3DS digital download service, the eShop, will be going live June 6th. But even if you don’t have any money to spare, there’ll be content for you starting day one. 3DS owners who access the  eShop will receive a free download of the 3D classics port of Excite Bike. Like the original, the title will feature a track editor, but this time the port will include the ability to save up to thirty two tracks.  The download is a limited offers, so 3DS owners would do well to download it as soon as possible.


Nintendo also announced that the service will be launching with some Pokémon software as well, Pokédex 3D. This Pokédex 3D will allow players to access information on the 150 new Pokémon in Pokémon Black and White. Players start with sixteen Pokémon unlocked. They will continue to unlock Pokémon through QR codes, Spot Pass and Street  Pass. The title also gives you a full 3D view of these Pokémon as well as the ability to place Pokémon into pictures via AR cards.  There’s no mention of a time limit on the free availability of this title.


Excitebike, like other enhanced 3D classics, will look like the original NES games with added depth, but NintendoWorldReport has screenshots for Pokédex 3D.

You Got Your Pokemon in my Happy Meal?

Remember growing up as a kid, and going to McDonalds or Burger King. To get all of those Pokemon toys. You and every other kid had to collect them all, no matter what.


So if you’re a sucker for Pokemon and you have to have all the toys or cards, you should definitely check this out. (The source provides pictures of the toys, can’t obtain an image if you can’t right-click)


Starting on June 17th and lasting until July 7th, McDonalds you and all your friends can relive your childhoods and buy Happy Meals for Pokemon.


I’ve always wanted my own Oshawott which I can remove it’s head because Snivy is just that cool. Then Snivy gets in the middle of a gang fight with Zorua and Zororak vs. Reshiram and Zekrom. Pikachu the police officer, with it’s illuminating cheeks comes and saves Snivy. Then putting the others in Pokeprison. Tepig was just in the car stuffing it’s face with donuts.


Now these toys aren’t just things that sit there. They actually do commands.


“Pikachu- Press on its tail and its cheeks light up
Reshiram- Moving arms and legs
Oshawott- Bobblehead figure
Zoroark- Moving arms and waist
Tepig- Press on its back to have its tail light up
Zekrom- Moving arms and wings
Snivy- Push it forward to move his head up and down
Zorua- Push down on its back and it pounces forward”


Now even though there isn’t an Emolga, I’ll suffice. If you want some cool new Pokemon items, go to McDonalds and get them plus the cards.
