iPhone 5c With Pokemon Influence
Apple’s iPhone 5c has a vibrant choice of coloring, which makes it difficult to choose which sole phone you’d like to use in the line. Now, thanks to artist George Michael Brower, it might be an even harder choice with these Pokemon-inspired mockups. Totally rad artwork! You can head over to Brower’s site to download these wallpapers as stickers for free here.

Limited Edition Pokémon X & Y 3DS XL Systems Hit Stores Today
It was kind of a boner move on Nintendo’s part to not just wait until the new games are released in October and include digital versions with these as part of a bundle like they did with the Fire Emblem 3DS or the Animal Crossing one, but maybe it’s a smart move since they know Pokémon fans will just keep shelling out money to feed their obsession.
The Story of Red (Not Ash) Told in Pokemon Origins
Rad news for Pokemon fans everywhere — the Pokemon TV app, an app in which people can watch full and free episodes of the Pokemon anime series, is premiering a four-part web series titled Pokemon Origins, based off of the character Red from Pokemon Red/Blue versions. The series starts off on November 15, with new episodes coming weekly. This is an awesome idea for a series, and I’m stoked to see how this turns out since Ash isn’t too cool of a character compared to Red, and I’m dying to see some hardcore Pokemon training action.

The Rarest Pokemon Card Ever
In 1997, this card was given to six people as a prize of the Pokémon Card Game Illustration Contest held in Japan. It was never printed in English and five of the cards were reported to be in circulation, while the sixth is held by the Official Pokemon TCG blog itself.
We certify that your illustration is an excellent entry in the Pokémon Card Game Illustration Contest. Therefore, we state that you are an Officially Authorized Pokémon Card Illustrator and admire your skill.
And right now, one of the owners of the card is asking for $100,000 for his mint condition Pokemon Illustrator card on Ebay. Imagine the money you could have if you owned this!
