The piece also includes realistic renditions of Tentacruel, Jellicent, Frillish, Sharpedo, and Omastar, who is the ultimate evolved form of Omanyte, who is born from the helix fossil. The helix fossil rose to prominence recently with the TwitchPlaysPokemon phenomenon.

Sega And Pokémon Devs Team Up To Create Tembo The Badass Elephant

Sega and Game Freak, best known for their Pokémon franchise, have teamed up to bring the side-scrolling action platformer Tembo The Badass Elephant, coming this summer for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It will be released as a digital download on each platform. The game has players racing through levels as a Rambo-styled elephant, creating as much rampage and destruction as possible. 

Shell City is being attacked by PHANTOM, a force led by a mysterious, masked commander. Tembo is called in by the National Army to help crush and stomp the enemy, whilst eating peanuts along the way. 

Just how badass is this elephant? Check out the humorous and cartoon-like game in the trailer below.

Test Chamber – The Free-To-Play Pokémon Shuffle

The Pokémon Company has embraced the free-to-play model with Pokémon Shuffle on 3DS, and we decided to take a look and see if the match-three puzzler is unnecessarily restrictive.

Jeff Cork, our resident match-three expert and genre super-fan, and I played the game for a few minutes. The gameplay is basically the same as Pokémon Battle Trozei, but there is a limit to how many rounds you can play consecutively. Similar to Candy Crush, if you run out of attempts you can either wait for more, or you can purchase jewels with real money to keep playing. Unlike Candy Crush however, every attempt – success or failure – costs you one of your lives. Even if you're successfully battling and catching Pokémon, you will hit the same wall as someone who is playing poorly.

You can check out some of the gameplay (and see how much the jewels cost) in the video below.
