More attack and ability names revealed, plus Twitter

Pokémon Black & White — 08 February, 2011

First, a quick reminder that the wi-fi event to obtain Raikou, Entei and Suicune is now underway! This week you can get a shiny Raikou in Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver by selecting Mystery Gift from the title screen, then Nintendo WFC. The event is open to America, Europe and Australia. It may also be available in other areas too so give it a try!

Second, if you use the social networking site Twitter, you can now follow us @pokemondb! I will post regular Pokemon news updates, particularly small newsbites that aren't major enough to do a post on the front page. Plus any random facts or Pokemon goodies I stumble across.

And the main part of this update - more move and ability names have been confirmed by various sources:

Vengeance is now Retaliate
Boiling Water is now Scald
Evil Eye is now Hex
Healing Beam is now Heal Pulse
Sing A Round is now Round
Electric Ball is now Electro Ball
Wood Horn is now Horn Leech
Cheer Up is now Work Up
Flame Burst and Dragon Tail stay the same
Tension (ability) is now Unnerve
Regeneration (ability) is now Regenerator
