Today, we have the final preview for the upcoming concert series Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions; it may be the last one, but it's one heck of a finale.

The preview for today comes from the folks over at Marriland, and it features the music from the battle with Red in Pokémon Gold and Silver, as well as Heartgold and Soulsilver. This piece is definitely the most epic tune we've heard from the concert yet, and it'll sound phenomenal when played by a live orchestra; it definitely captures the feelings I had when battling against Red for the first time in Pokémon Gold.

Head inside to listen to the preview, and check out the previous selections.

In today's Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions preview, we get a look at a symphonic rendition of one of the saddest Pokémon songs ever written—N's Farewell from Pokémon Black and White.

Today's preview will arguably benefit the most from the live performance; while the preview excerpt is slightly melancholy, the live orchestra will be able to convey much more emotion through the song than the synthesized version ever could. Seriously, this could be the song that makes everyone at the concert cry.

Recently, the folks over at VG Tribune had the chance to sit down with Jeron Moore and Chad Seiter, who are co-creators of the upcoming Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions concert series.

During the interview, the duo stated that future dates and venues for the concert series are dependent upon the success of the first two shows in Washington D.C. and Philadelphia; they did state, however, that there are currently additional cities that are interested in hosting a concert.

Yesterday, we got a look at our sixth preview for the upcoming concert tour Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions.

The preview, presented by the folks over at TheNationalDex on YouTube, features the opening music from Pokémon Diamond and Pearl; this musical selection plays during the opening sequence, when Professor Rowan introduces you to the Sinnoh region. This preview sounds great, even though it is only a synthesized mock-up; the real deal is likely to be even more heart-wrenching.

Today, YouTube user ChuggaConroy shared another preview piece from the upcoming concert series Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions.

The fifth piece (click the links to check out the first, second and third, and fourth previews) features the Route 113 theme from Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire and their remakes. In Hoenn, Route 113 is a northern route that is covered in volcanic ash, and it has one of the best themes in the game. This orchestral version sounds even better, and it'll sound even better than this live.

Today, YouTuber NintendoFanFTW had the opportunity to share another preview piece from Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions.

The fourth preview (you can click the links to check out the first, second and third previews) features the Victory Road theme from Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire (and likely their remakes, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire). As before, the preview is still a synthetic mockup of the the piece, not a live orchestral recording, so the song will likely sound even better live!

Last week, we got our first look at the music for Pokémon: Symphonic Revolutions, the new concert tour for Pokémon music coming later this year. Now, we've got two more previews for you to listen to!

These two new previews, which come from YouTubers GlitchxCity and TheJWittz, feature the Team Rocket hideout theme from Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow (and FireRed and LeafGreen) and a medley of battle music from the series. Keep in mind, these previews are still synthetic versions, not live recordings.

Paying for content on the Wii U eShop has always been a bit of a hassle. If you don't have any money in your account, you have to go through the account settings, choose a credit amount, enter all your credit card information (or the long eShop gift card code), and then return to the payment page. You can save your card information, sure, but if something goes wrong with the account, you have to start from scratch. Wouldn't it be a lot easier if you could just swipe your card on the GamePad and be done with it?

Well, in Japan, that's what's about to happen—and a similar system may be coming worldwide. Head inside for more information.

Last month, The Pokémon Company announced a series of Pokémon-themed concerts called Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions.

The concert series, which currently has scheduled stops in Washington DC on August 15th and Philadelphia on September 19th, will feature music from every generation of Pokémon. YouTuber TamashiiHiroka has an exclusive preview of one of the tracks that will be played at the concert: the Pallet Town theme from Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow. The excerpt is only a synthesized mockup of the tune, which will be performed live at the concert; it sounds great, and it'll likely sound even better from a live orchestra!

You know what I hate most in the video game industry? Well, okay, that's probably a tie between on-disk and/or day one DLC, but that's a topic for another day. A close second is the very concept of a "console war," the mentality it creates, and the potential it has for very negative ramifications for gamers. Take a look at any article on a large gaming site or gaming-related video on YouTube (or, hell, just open your mouth for two seconds in your local GameStop) and you'll find an almost inevitable barrage of childish name-calling, slurs related to your sexuality, fanatic-like declarations of support for a specific company, and rude comments about your (presumably lovely!) mother. Welcome, dear gamer, to the console wars. Enter at your own risk.
