The Badge Arcade Bunny is celebrating his nearly complete Pokédex with a swarm of 136 new pixel Pokémon badges! Pocket pals from Ruby, Sapphire, Diamond and Pearl will be heavily featured all week long, providing some serious variety for die hard collectors.

Those of you avidly against enslaving poor, defenseless creatures for the purposes of self-righteous street fighting, Super Mario Bros. 3 and Legend of Zelda badges make their historic return. All in all it’s a pretty great week for fans of classic NES action!



Free play: Yes

Gotta cuddle ‘em all!



Not a single catcher from today’s deluge of new Poképals will be fleeing the Arcade anytime soon. Mario and Zelda badges are sticking around for at least the next few days too, giving you plenty of time to work your magic on those Practice Catchers.


There are no special themes being offered this week. Pretty crazy how we haven’t had one based on Pokémon’s in-game PC boxes, don’t you think?


From now through May 18th at 3:00 a.m. PST, every dollar you spend will nab you one of these four frowny Arcade Bunny badges. Don’t miss out on hydration bunny’s legendary return, seen below cheering with a nice cool glass of carrot juice.

That’s all for today! Catch you Thursday!
