about X hours ago from

Warner Bros.' live-action adaptation of Detective Pikachu isn't the only Pokemon movie hitting theaters this year. The Pokemon Company has now shared the first trailer for the upcoming animated film Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution, a complete CGI remake of the very first Pokemon movie.

The trailer, which you can watch above, is a near shot-for-shot recreation of scenes from the original Mewtwo Strikes Back, which is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its North American premiere this year. We also get a glimpse at how the series' iconic trio Ash, Misty, and Brock look rendered in CGI for the first time.

Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution is set to premiere in Japan on July 12. It's unclear if the movie will air in theaters in other parts of the world as well, but the past two Pokemon films--I Choose You and The Power of Us--have both received very limited international theatrical runs. The official Pokemon Twitter account teased "international details [are] coming soon."

Apex Legends Team Guide: Pairing Abilities To Win Championships

Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of the characters is important in Apex Legends, so you always know what you're up against and what you're capable of on the battlefield. Equally important, though, is knowing how you can help your squadmates in emergency situations and amplify their ability to win.

Just about any team composition in Apex Legends is viable, but it's smart to balance characters with different strengths and weaknesses. It's a good idea to bring along a defensive character or medic in almost all cases, for instance, although it's not essential. And picking characters that go well together can increase your odds of winning, especially if you're smart and work together with your complementary abilities.

We've spent a whole lot of time with all the characters in Apex Legends, and we've seen some of the cool things they can do together. Below is a list of ways you can use Legends in concert with each other to get the upper hand on your opponents and win those coveted championships.

Team Ninja has released the first season pass for Dead or Alive 6, and it costs more than the game itself. Dead or Alive 6 released today at a retail price of $60 USD, while its Season Pass 1--which went live almost immediately after the game launched--costs $93 USD.

For that staggeringly high price point, you'll net yourself over 60 costumes for the roster of fighters included in Dead or Alive 6 at launch, as well as two new additional characters that will release sometime between Mach and June. Season Pass 1 contains both volumes of the special Happy Wedding Costumes and two additional extended costume packs for all characters. There are costumes for the two new fighters as well, of which only the first--Fatal Fury's Mai Shiranui--has been revealed. Season Pass 1 also includes bonus content for NiCO and Nyotengu.

Destiny 2: Xur Is Getting A Big Improvement In Season Of The Drifter

about X hours ago from

The Season of the Drifter is about to start in Destiny 2, and it's bringing a lot of changes. There will be a new version of Gambit for players to check out called Gambit Prime, a new high-level activity called The Reckoning, new pinnacle weapons to earn, and a bunch of new loot to find.

With the sixth Destiny 2 season comes another big change that'll let you get cooler gear. Bungie is instituting a change for Xur, Emissary of the Nine, that'll make his weekly visits, and the Exotic weapons and armor he sells each week, a lot more useful to players.

According to a post from Bungie on Reddit, Xur's wares are changing in Season 6. He'll finally sell Exotics from the Forsaken expansion that dropped in Fall 2018. Up to now, Xur has only sold Year One Exotics, those from before the Forsaken expansion. In order to get the cool new gear added in Year Two, players had to hope for extremely rare random drops. With the Forsaken Exotics added to Xur's wares, you'll now have a weekly chance to purchase what you're missing for Legendary Shards.

Tom Cruise's Edge Of Tomorrow Sequel Is Moving Forward (Again)

about X hours ago from

It's been nearly two years since there was any news about the potential sequel to the Tom Cruise-starring Edge of Tomorrow, but it seems the project is moving forward again. It has been reported that Warner is developing a follow-up to the 2014 sci-fi action movie.

According to Deadline, writer Matthew Robinson (Monster Trucks, The Invention of Lying) has been hired to work on the script after successfully pitching a story idea to the studio. The site states that the intention is for Cruise to reprise his role as reluctant soldier William Cage, along with co-star Emily Blunt and director Doug Liman.

Liman had previously spoken about his hopes to make a sequel, and in 2017 stated he had an "amazing" story for a sequel that was "way better than the first film." However, Deadline now states that work on this earlier version stalled and Robinson's story will be an entirely new take.

Last Chance To Get Shiny Meltan In Pokemon Go

Last Chance To Get Shiny Meltan In Pokemon Go

Time is running out to catch a Shiny Meltan in Pokemon Go. As part of the game's ongoing Meltan event, Niantic is giving players their first chance to find the Shiny version of the new Mythical Pokemon, but it's only scheduled to appear until March 4.

To catch Meltan in Pokemon Go, you'll need to have the Mystery Box--an item you get in the mobile game when you transfer a Pokemon to either Let's Go Pikachu or Eevee on Switch. Once the box is opened, Meltan will spawn in the wild for 30 minutes. After that, the box will close, and you'll typically need to wait a week before you can repeat the process.

As part of this event, you'll have a chance of finding a Shiny Meltan in the wild when you open the Mystery Box. As you can see above, the Shiny variant has a slightly darker head than a typical Meltan, as well as a blue (rather than red) tail. On top of that, the time you need to wait to reopen the Mystery Box has been reduced for the event, allowing you to find Meltan much more quickly than before.
