December issue of the Japanese gaming magazine CoroCoro published interesting details about the about Pokémon franchise. This year will be big for Pokémon fans out there, as "Pokémon Z" and "Pokémon Go" is set to release on February.
Last year, there are online reports that say Pokémon Z and Pokémon Go launching will be announced by CoroCoro magazine. However, the magazine unveiled new Pokémon instead.
The new Pokémon is named Zygarde, which is consistent with previous reports that it is a combination of Yveltal and Xerneas from Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. The Pokémon is the central character of Pokemon Z.
According to CoroCoro Magazine, Zygarde is one of the most powerful monsters in the Pokémon world. It has five different forms such as his 10 percent form, his 50 percent form, his Cell form, his Core fore, and his complete form.
Pokedex revealed some interesting details about the Pokémon. "When the Kalos region's ecosystem falls into disarray, it appears and reveals its secret power," description says.
As for the release date of Pokémon Z and Pokémon Go, online reports said the games would be launched in February. However, there is still no announcement from Game Freak or The Pokémon Company about the official release date.
Pokemon Go is being developed by Niantic Inc., who is perhaps best known for developing augmented reality game Ingress. Players around the world can hunt their own Pokémon in real-world by logging-in to the game. The game will also give players an opportunity to train their own creatures for battles and fight with other Pokémon trainers.
Pokémon Go will also feature a unique system of exchange between players. Players can buy Pokémon or accessories that they want with real currency or some in-game token economy.
GameSpot said the augmented-reality game will be released on the App Store and Google Play this year for free, and it will also have in-app purchases.
On the other hand, "Pokémon Z" is believed to be the next edition of "Pokémon X" and "Pokémon Y," which were developed by Game Freak Studios, in partnership with The Pokémon Company.
It is also interesting to note that speculations seem to be consistent that the game would be out sometime this year on the Nintendo 3DS, or about three years after its predecessor games were released to the same gaming platform.
