Tiny Friday Update with Pokémon GO, Fire Emblem, Badge Center and Super Mario Run news!

● Small news update as it’s Children’s Day! There will be an influx of Grass-type Pokémon (including Chikorita above!) in Pokémon GO this weekend. It’s anticipated that Pokémon will return to their normal habitats on 8 May!

● Fire Emblem producer Hitoshi Yamagami told Dengeki Nintendo that Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will probably be the last mainline entry on Nintendo 3DS before the series moves over to Switch.

● This week’s update to Collectible Badge Center saw two panels of Monster Hunter Kati and Airou School Series badges, seven panels of Pixelated Pokémon badges and two panels of Animal Crossing badges plus free plays every day until 25 May.

Super Mario Run players have now played Toad Rally 44,066,496 times since the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe promotion began and have unlocked the Mario Kart Statue (as well as Blooper and Banana!). Next stop the Nintendo Switch statue!
