Rotom Dex DX Picture book

Rotom Dex DX Picture book by Takara Tomy revealed in Ichiban CoroCoro + Necrozma entry revealed as #400 - 21/09/2017

Entry 09:26am - 21/09/2017. (Don't forget to visit our Facebook page for news updates and more.)

 

A small piece of news now, as a brand new official Rotom Pokédex electronic picture book will release for the new games, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Following the Sun and Moon release, this version can register 4 times as many Pokémon compared with the older edition [100 registration limit] which has now expanded [400 registration limit]. According to this piece from CoroCoro Ichiban, Necrozma will be listed as entry #400. However, no clear indications are given on how the dex is expanded. It is a good speculation point however, seeing as new forms and Ultra Beasts are confirmed to be introduced in the new games. This Rotom DX picture book will release in November exclusive to Japan, however if any updates regarding this product happen, be sure to reference our USUM Merchandise section. Stay tuned for more! (Note: The S/M Alola National Pokédex ends at Marshadow #302.)

Entry 12:28pm. Tomy UK meeting 14:40pm - 20/09/2017. (Don't forget to visit our Facebook page for news updates and more.)

 

The Pokémon Z-Power Ring by Tomy which is scheduled for release in Japan on (Friday) November 17th. This will be the same day as the Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon games launch, which will of course introduce new Z-Crystals which can be utilised, allowing players to try out new devastating Z-Moves! It has now been revealed that 3 new Crystals will be available on launch, although it seems unclear on which the middle one pictured above is. Lycanium Z appears to be the first, with Kommoium-Z being the final one. This is good enough evidence to suggest that even more Z moves will be revealed soon. Best guess is the middle one belonging to a ghost-type, most likely Mimikyu based on the original trailer. However we are still investigating certain listings for confirmation. Keep checking back to the site database for all the latest developments for new merchandise listings and information. (Ref : USUM Merchandise Database).

 

Notice : We are delighted to confirm we'll be reporting about the first Tomy Pokémon merchandise lines for 2018 on (Tuesday) January 23rd, 2018 from 9am until 6pm GMT.
