Pokemon X & Y is barely out and already footage of a rumoured Pikachu title has appeared online. The game is said to be coming to 3DS and appears to feature a mechanic that sees Pikachu copying your facial expressions. It’s quite darling and/or terrifying.

Remember how The Pokémon Company was teasing a special announcement? It’s a four week giveaway promotion open to US residents only. Gotta Catch ‘Em All will offer games, toys and even a whole 3DS, but you’ll need to be vigilant to score a prize, tracking down clues in promotional videos. Visit NintendoLife for all the details and the first mysterious video, then take your answer to the promotional site to enter.

The Pokémon Company has registered US trademarks for Pokétretta Battles and Pokétretta Tournament for use with video games, which as Siliconera notes, are likely connected to Pokémon Tretta Lab – the 3DS game which scans Marvelous AQL Tretta discs. Trademarks for Pokéfigure Arena and Pokéfigure were also dug up by the site, with Pokéfigure Arena sounding awfully similar to Pokémon Rumble U. Pokémon Tretta Lab was released on August 10 in Japan bundled with Eevee, Mewtwo, Lucario and Pichu cards.
