Pokkén Tournament Halloween Event
October 9th, 2015
Dogasu @ 06:39 JST -- The official website for Pokkén Tournament, the arcade fighting game currently available in Japan but coming to the Wii U worldwide in 2016, announced a Halloween Event taking place later this month.
The event will run from Thursday, October 15th to Tuesday, November 3rd. If you use your Bana Passport / Aime Card you'll receive a Mumage and a Kyuukon as a special Support Pokemon set. You'll also receive new avatar items / titles / PokéGold at random every time you play during the event. The Haunted House stage will also get a Halloween-themed makeover.
You'll also be able to log onto the Pokken Web Link site and add Near's (the woman in the image above) Halloween costume to your game.
New Rocket-Dan song coming soon!
October 5th, 2015
Dogasu @ 07:35 JST -- Mima Masafumi, the sound director for Pocket Monsters XY (and every other Pocket Monsters series before that) has been posting on his Twitter feed for a while now about an upcoming new Rocket-Dan:

"The Rocket-Dan's secret" seems to be be a reference to The Rocket-Dan's Secret Empire, a radio show that ran for 26 episodes back in 2012 that was hosted by the Rocket trio. It was amazing.
"The new P of Pokemon" probably means "the new producer of Pokemon." Based on a tweet I'll talk about later I'm thinking this is a reference to Sakou Tomohisa.

After that we didn't get much of an update until Sakou Tomohisa, the singer of the current opening theme to XY and producer of the upcoming theme song to XY & Z, tweeted this:

Mr. Sakou is also helping produce the opening theme to XY&Z so it seems like he's being kept busy with his role as a "General Producer."
And then, the very next day we get this from Mr. Mima's Twitter:
September 26th, 2015 3:27am JST
The Sakou Tomohisa tweet may be unrelated to this Rocket-Dan song but it's hard to ignore the timing of his tweet in relation to Mr. Mima's.
Anyway, I really, really hope this new Rocket-Dan song ends up being the ending theme to XY&Z. This "let's use middle school aged girl groups for the ending themes" thing the franchise has been doing for the last few years or so is getting really old so having the Rocket trio provide the ending would be a much-needed change of pace. The ending theme for XY&Z hasn't been announced yet even though its premier is only a few weeks away so maybe there's still hope...?
