The Pokémon Company has released a lot of details about stuff coming out this fall besides Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire.
First, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y players can snag a Shiny Gengar holding a Gengarite Mega Stone when they pick up a special code card from participating GameStop stores between October 13 and October 26. This Shiny Gengar can Mega Evolve into Shiny Mega Gengar during battles! Also available at participating GameStop locations starting October 13 is a Pokémon TCG: Gengar Spirit Link 2-pack. It includes two booster packs from the Pokémon TCG: XY—Furious Fists expansion, as well as the Gengar Spirit Link Pokémon Trainer card that debuts in the next Pokémon TCG expansion, XY—Phantom Forces.
Mythical Pokémon Diancie
Return to GameStop between October 27 and November 16 for a code card to receive the Mythical Pokémon Diancie in Pokémon X or Pokémon Y! After receiving Diancie, it can be transferred into Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire when those games launch on November 21 for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Once the Diancite Mega Stone has been obtained in the new games, players can Mega Evolve Diancie during battles!
Pokemon Trading Card Game: XY — Phantom Forces
Also coming this autumn is the Pokémon TCG: XY—Phantom Forces expansion, featuring a host of new and powerful Pokémon cards, including Diancie! The XY—Phantom Forces expansion includes well over 100 awesome cards with which to build your new winning deck. It launches on November 5.

Remember last year when a mysterious 3 second clip appeared at the end of a video shown at the Pokemon Game Show last August? The Pokemon Company released information about it today.
The new game is called “Pokkén Tournament” and is an arcade game being developed by Namco Bandai’s Tekken Team. “Whether you are a causal player, a regular player or a hardcore player, anyone who likes Pokemon can have fun,” said Namco’s Katsuhiro Harada. He also said that Pokkén Tournament is actually “closer to an action game.” He added that Namco used its “know how” to develop the game.
From what we’ve seen so far, it looks like the game might only feature Fighting type Pokemon. Last year’s clip showed off Blaziken and Lucario and now this time, the below video shows off Lucario and Machamp. You may also see that Mega Lucario makes a quick cameo. Does this mean Machamp might be getting a Mega Evolution to withstand a beating from Mega Lucario and Mega Blaziken?
I guess we’ll see when the game gets closer to its release date next Summer in Japan.
