Ninfia will be a new evolution of the pokemon Eevee, and will make its debut in Pokemon X and Y versions. It is 1 meter long, and weighs 23.5 kilograms. Other than that, no other information is given; we don’t know what type it is, or even how you need to evolve Eevee in order to obtain this pokemon. Also, its English name, which will likely end in -eon, is still unknown. Rest assured, this information will be revealed in due time.

In the last article posted about the Winter Friendly, the format for the competition was listed as being Double Battles. The format for this competition is actually Rotation Battles. This has been corrected in the previous article.

Some other things you should know about the Winter Friendly that are different from past competitions:

  • The only banned pokemon in this competition is Chatot. That means you can bring all your big strong (legally-obtained) legendaries to play!
  • The only banned item is still Soul Dew.
  • The only banned moves are Dark Void (you can still use Darkrai, but it may not have this move) and Sky Drop.
  • The only requirement for getting into the rankings and earning the participation prize is to complete 1 battle instead of 10.

Registration has just opened for the Winter Friendly. Information on how to register for wifi competitions can be found here. Be sure to complete your registration before 7pm February 14th!

648Meloetta_DreamGameStop has released early details for an upcoming promotional download event. Players with a copy of Pokemon Black, White, Black 2 or White 2 versions who visit a GameStop store between March 4th and March 24th will be able to download a Meloetta through wireless to their game. Since Meloetta has an alternate forme, there will very likely be flyer handouts available with information on how to teach Meloetta the Relic Song move, which causes her to change between Aria Forme (Normal/Psychic, pictured at left) and Pirouette Forme (Normal/Fighting) when used in battle. The dates for this event will be added to the League Calendar, and a reminder will be posted with a listing of local GameStop locations as we get closer to March 4th.
