A Candian newspaper is reporting that a French Rainbow Six Siege player has been accused of causing Ubisoft Montreal to be swatted by police in November last year.

According to Montreal newspaper La Presse, citing a report filed by the Montreal police and a French court, Yanni Ouahioune had been banned from Rainbow Six Siege over 80 times. During the past four years, he has harassed the studio and other Siege players.

According to a criminal indictment in France, Ouahioune is responsible for having the studio swatted two more times in the next two months (thanks, Polygon).

Speaking with the newspaper, Ouahioune denied having the studio swatted by police, but did admit he attempted to have another player’s home swatted.

At one point, he impersonated a Ubisoft Montreal staff member in a call to Ubisoft in order to get access to his banned account. When this scheme failed, he threatened to “terrorize” Ubisoft “to death,” according to the indictment. He said this in order to get “all the keys to R6 and […] access to commands to ban people.”

However, according to the report, there have been other incidents directed at Ubisoft Montreal, which Ouahioune denies he played a part in. “[I] have stopped all of my bad activities,” he told the paper. “I no longer want my mother to be disappointed.”

The November 13 swatting call caused 400 people at Ubisoft Montreal to be evacuated, and reports stated the caller, who spoofed a call to Montreal cops, claimed to be holding 40 people hostage. The caller also said they would blow up the building if not paid over $2 million.

Court documents stated this was the work of Ouahioune, who denies the allegations. The next two swatting attempts, made in December and January, were resolved without incident as the police made “more discreet checks before launching a large-scale operation.” He also denies being the perpetrator of the other two false alerts.

Denials aside, it appears the French citizen remains the main suspect.

The Pokémon series has released over 100 games since it debuted more than 20 years ago, but some of the most excellent spinoffs are being forgotten.

The Pokémon franchise is one of the most successful properties in the whole world. In addition to the long-lasting game series, TV show, and an excessive amount of merchandise, there’s been a number of amazing Pokémon spinoffs that could easily become series of their own if they weren’t forgotten by The Pokémon Company.

The original Pokémon spinoff is one of the most nostalgic. Pokémon Stadium released in 2000 and was the first time fans were able to see their favorite monsters in 3D, along with a slew of timeless minigames. Recently, Nintendo released Pokken Tournament and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX on the Switch to some great critical reception, and a New Pokémon Snap is in the works as well, which is an exciting move for fans of the series.

That barely scratches the surface, though, of the plethora of amazing Pokémon side-games. One of the most unique and in-depth titles in Pokémon history is Pokémon Conquest, a mash-up of Pokémon and Nobunaga’s Ambition — resulting in one of the best tactical RPGs on the Nintendo DS. The Pokémon Trading Card Game for the Game Boy is still revered as one of the best spin-offs fans want to see a return of, and Pokémon Pinball has been missing from Nintendo’s lineup since 2003.

The Best Pokemon Spin-offs

Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness were the first story-based Pokémon games for consoles. Although they didn’t follow the traditional formula of catching wild Pokémon and collecting gym badges, the games themselves had compelling stories with their own unique way of combining battling and healing the hearts of Shadow Pokémon. The desert world of Orre was incredibly unique, and a darker Pokémon story along with slightly harder gameplay made the titles stand out from the main series. Both titles played more like traditional JRPGs, and could easily live alongside the Pokémon main games as a more adult-oriented series.

According to Pokémon’s corporate website, The Pokémon Company has sold over 30.4 billion Pokémon Trading Cards since its first print in Japan in 1996. The Pokémon Company released Pokémon TCG Online in 2011 for PC and mobile, but there hasn’t been a real entry similar to the Game Boy’s Pokémon Trading Card Game since 2000. The original Game Boy game had players follow a similar path as the main titles, where a young boy is challenging eight of the best leaders in the world to card game battles. With the…

A new version of Pokémon Sun and Moon will launch for Nintendo Switch.

Pokémon Sun and Moon for 3DS will be joined by Pokémon Stars for Switch.

Multiple sources tell Eurogamer the game is already well into development, will launch in 2017, and currently holds the codename of Pokémon Stars.

Earlier generations of Pokémon games have featured a third title launched later with expanded features – Pokémon Yellow followed Game Boy originals Red and Blue to start this trend, which continued through until Pokémon Platinum followed Diamond and Pearl on DS.

With Pokémon Stars, this idea will be revived – but for the first time we’ll see the mainline Pokémon series spanning separate Nintendo consoles within the same generation of games.

Indeed, Switch will be the first Nintendo “home” console to receive a main Pokémon adventure. It only took 20 years.

Nintendo’s new 3DS duo Sun and Moon, available today in North America and Japan or next week in Europe, have shared much of their development with their Switch bigger brother.

As you might expect, Pokémon Stars is being developed by the Sun and Moon team at Game Freak, the studio behind all main Pokémon games since the series’ Game Boy beginnings.

In fact, you may have already seen something from the Switch version. Sun and Moon’s February reveal teaser culminates in split-second shots of Game Freak staff such as series boss Junichi Masuda and director Shigeru Ohmori working on Sun and Moon spliced with quick flashes of in-game concept art and models, including this HD in-game model for new bird Pokémon Pikipek. We’ve heard this is for the Switch edition:

A work-in-progress model for Pikipek.

This parallel development structure has allowed the work-in-progress Pokémon Stars to already feature working versions of Sun and Moon content. I’m told that GameFreak largely paused work on the Switch version a couple of months ago to polish Sun and Moon in time for their launch this month, but that work on Stars will now resume with the development of features not found in the 3DS versions.

Pokémon Stars’ development shouldn’t be seen as taking anything away from Sun and Moon’s launch – this is how all third entries in the Pokémon franchise are developed.

And there will be reason to play both: Pokémon will be tradable between Sun/Moon and Stars via the Pokémon Bank app. We’ve also heard suggestion there will be more creatures to collect in the Switch version, although not all of our sources could confirm this.

Expect the Switch version of Sun and Moon to feature the same map – the same routes and cities – and the same art style, although be built using separate, higher-resolution assets.

It may be some time before Stars releases, however. We heard the game was initially a summer 2017 launch for Nintendo Switch, but has since been pushed back to later in the year.

Both Nintendo and The Pokémon Company declined to comment for this article, although I asked Sun and Moon director Ohmori about the…

When “Pokemon Snap” was released 22 years ago, it marked a departure for the popular monster-collecting video game franchise.

Rather than capture the titular creatures and train them to be ruthless combatants, “Pokemon Snap” allowed players to leisurely photograph them while taking a slow-paced journey through their habitats.

It stayed true to the series catchphrase “gotta catch ’em all” and found an audience with those who wanted to focus on the collecting aspect of a standard Pokemon game.

It took more than two decades for a sequel to emerge, but “New Pokemon Snap,” out now for the Nintendo Switch, is as much an interesting diversion from the series as its predecessor.

It’s a laid-back safari through a variety of environments, with the only goal to take photos of Pokemon in their element. No need to worry about capturing the creatures in those tiny red-and-white balls and preparing them for battles against other trainers.

Taking place in the new Lental region in the Pokemon universe, the game takes players through a series of varying environments. Each has its unique physical features, vegetation, and, of course, varieties of Pokemon.

The trips through the environments are on a set path, so players won’t be able to freely explore. It could take a few runs though the same course to become familiar with the patterns of the Pokemon in the area and prepare for the perfect photo.

“New Pokemon Snap” does have a perfunctory story to move players between locations, but the real goal is to fill out a photo album known as the “Photodex.” There are 214 Pokemon to be photographed in the game, and to complete the list players will need to take at least four photographs of each one.

After completing a course, players will have the option of submitting one photo for each Pokemon they capture on camera. The affable scientist Professor Mirror will evaluate the photos based on criteria including pose, distance and whether the Pokemon is facing the camera.

A photo will be given a numerical score based on those criteria and a rating of one to four stars. Getting a higher star count requires capturing Pokemon doing something unique. Taking a photo of famed series mascot Pikachu sitting calmly in the grass would be a one-star shot. Photographing it firing off a bolt of lightning could be worth three or four.

Getting four-star shots will often require the player to set up the environment. Players have several tools to get a Pokemon’s attention. Throwing fruit can lure a Pokemon into the open, or make them irritated with a direct hit. Playing music can awaken a sleeping monster, while a scan function not only indicates where Pokemon may be hiding, but its flash can also get a reaction out of some critters.

Each sub-region in the game has its own “illumina orbs,” a resource that is unlocked once a player completes certain objectives. These orbs of light can be used to illuminate the environment or attract Pokemon. Each area has its own large Pokemon — this…
