Nintendo Badge Arcade receives most important update: Pokémon badges

But not that kind

Nintendo Badge Arcade launched on Nintendo 3DS eShop just shy of a week ago, and the free-to-try downloadable game has received a steady stream of updates since.

Today, according to Nintendo of America's Twitter, the crane game simulator and 3DS decorator launches the latest set of new badges, and this update is good enough to turn the skeptical into devotees: Pokémon badges — that is, those based on the monsters themselves — are now available.

You can now adorn your 3DS home screen with a variety of the classic creatures. Five different panels featuring your favorite Pokémon are currently available, and Nintendo will add more to the Arcade throughout the week.

These badges are only available for a limited time, just like previous updates based on Splatoon, Box Boy! and Mario Kart. You can collect ‘em all through Nov. 23.
