While the Pokemon World Championships are a place for hundreds of players to compete across the globe for over $500,000 in prizes, it’s also known for offering an exclusive line of rare Pokemon merchandise that can only be purchased at this event. The merchandise is always themed after the city hosting the competition, so given this year it’s in Washington, D.C. the theme is all about museums. That’s why Pikachu, Piplup and the gang are decked out in explorer’s gear — so they can find rare artifacts and Fossil Pokemon bones and bring them back to be put on display….

Know what the first thing I thought of when I saw RAD was? Toe Jam & Earl. The gameplay of this roguelike action-adventure, which is set in a twice-nuked future whose pop-culture sensibilities are permanently fossilized in the 1980s, shares a lot in common with that old Sega Genesis favorite. Combine that vibe with developer Double Fine’s signature playful sense of humor and near-endless variety from randomized mutation power-ups, and you get a surprisingly engaging just-one-more-run kind of game.

Apex Legends began its latest limited-time event, the Iron Crown, earlier this week. Along with the highly anticipated Solo mode, Iron Crown added a bunch of new legendary skins for each of its heroes.

Long-time Pokemon producer and designer Junichi Masuda competed in the Pokemon Go Invitational, the very first official Pokemon Go tournament ever, at the Pokemon World Championships. Rather than outfit his team with the most powerful, commonly-seen competitive Pokemon, he brought his well-known favorite: Psyduck. In his first battle against Poké AK, Masuda humorously (and un-strategically) seemed to save all three shields to keep his Psyduck alive as long as possible. Later in the best three out of five match-up, Masuda replaced Psyduck with another odd duck: Ludicolo. Poké AK took the match 3-0, and went on to finish the tournament…
