Kanto starters are ready for battle in the Badge Arcade today! Fans of Grass types might be a little disappointed at the lack of Bulbasaur though.

Don’t forget, Week Two of the Badge Arcade’s winter wonderland celebration is still going strong! Adding to last week’s assortment of festive themed badges in the Super Mario Bros., Animal Crossing and Pokémon series are new holiday catchers for Monster Hunter and WarioWare.

Everything New

Free play?

No. Deal with it.

Final chance

Both of today’s Pokémon catchers are fleeing the Arcade in the morning, so be sure to forever imprison, err… I mean… adopt those adorable charmanders while you still have a chance!

Special theme

Fans of mustached plumbers will be happy to know that this month’s special theme promotion is still going strong! From now through December 29th at 2:00 a.m. PST, spend just $2 on 10 plays to secure this Holiday Super Mario Bros. home theme — perfect for all the snow-capped Super Mario Bros. badges on tap for this week.

Thank-you promotion

There’s also a new special thank-you promotion starting today! From now through January 5th at 2:00 a.m. PST, every dollar you spend will nab you one of these four dapper-looking Arcade Bunny badges. Gotta say, that beefcake badge tail-ending the event might just be worth every penny.

That’s all for today! Catch you tomorrow!
