Even more will be added as time goes on, but I hope you will enjoy this mobile-first Pokémon website with a whole lot of heart, and I hope you'll find what you're looking for here.

Today, the release dates for the upcoming Pokémon games for the Nintendo Switch have been revealed—not just Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, but also Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are set for a worldwide release on November 19, 2021.

As previously teased back in January with the first announcement of P25 Music, the illustrious Katy Perry is joining Pokémon for their 25th Anniversary and is a part of the P25 Music collaboration with Universal Music Group.

Her new single and video, “Electric,” is available on YouTube or on supported music platforms, and features a Pikachu in the video, and the two look back on their earlier days, with Katy starting in a farmer’s market playing music for tips with alongside Pichu to playing at her first gig.

In addition to that, there is special Katy Perry x Pokémon P25 merchandise available, including a T-Shirt, Sweatshirt, and a Tote Bag. You can find these for pre-order at the P25 Official Music Store, and you can find pictures of them down below, after the press release.

Two-pack of V Battle Decks featuring Gardevoir V and Victini V on the packaging.

Today, two special new V Battle Decks—featuring Victini V and Gardevoir V—have been released and are available for purchase. These decks contain promo versions of either Victini V or Gardevoir V, and unlike normal preconstructed theme decks which do not usually contain cards like Pokémon V cards, these ones do, which is nice.

Each of these decks contain a prebuilt standard 60-card deck, damage counters, a coin, deckbox, playmat, rulebook, and a Quick Guide “to help players learn winning strategies.”

Not only that, but there’s also a two-pack version available, the V Battle Deck—Victini vs. Gardevoir bundle, that contains both of the two decks, as well as eight additional Trainer cards, including two foil cards, so this is a better deal if you’re looking to get both anyway or if you have a buddy you’d like to learn the Pokémon TCG with.
