Perfection is something many strive for but few obtain. In the world of Pokémon, perfection is shrouded in hidden mechanics and obscured by a meta-game often seen as tiresome by hardcore players. For the Pokémon breeders, genners and hackers, perfection lies in the unravelling and recombination of digital DNA in a bid to create flawless replicants. Welcome to the Pokémon black market, a community built on ethical reproduction with more than its fair share of grey areas.

As for when we'll see it, well, it'll follow the launch of Pokken Tournament DX on Switch this September - but how long after that will it release?
UPDATE 4.25pm: In a bizarre turn of events, The Pokémon Company has found itself having to deny the fact Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are headed to Nintendo Switch - after listing the just-announced games as such on its own website.
If you've been keeping up with our weekly cooking series Chiodini's Kitchen, you'll know I've been stuck in a bit of a Breath of the Wild rut recently - there's something about the way Link cooks in his new open world adventure that's really exciting. While I feel like I could explore the ins and outs of Hyrulian cuisine forever, I'm aware there are plenty of other games worthy of coverage in the kitchen.

Midway through last year, I moved house. That's not hugely interesting in itself I know - everyone moves house at some point - but this was a big one, out of my old, rural family home and into a place of my own. Little country boy Chris in the big city, fresh off the tractor, all dewey-eyed and open-mouthed at the bright lights and bustling noise of the metropolis.
OK, before you read this piece, I want you to do two things for me. First, I want you to think about how long (in hours) you've played Pokémon for. And second, I want you to try to remember the names of as many towns and cities in the games as you can.

Pirated copies of Pokémon Sun and Moon have been floating around the internet for a couple of weeks - now, Nintendo has decided to act.
Pokémon has often been a series trading on nostalgia. That warm, fuzzy and sort of sickening feeling some of us are prone to when thinking back to simpler times of link cables, your dad's Game Boy, and maybe the occasional semi-exploitative playground trade. Pokémon's relied on the stirring up of wistful reflection for so long that even pointing it out feels like a tired and unimaginative observation itself.
