The secret beta Pokémon of Gold and Silver @ Syfy Wire

What's your favorite Pokémon? Chances are it's a well-known species, like Pikachu or possibly Meowth (that's mine). Pokémon fans know the characters in the franchise, especially the playable and trainable ones in the game nearly by heart, hundreds of them, and we love them all equally as trainers. But what if there were a whole set of Pokémon you've never seen before? Pokémon that were meant to be in the games, but never got a chance to be?

The non-toxic masculinity of Rupert Giles @ Syfy Wire

Buffy the Vampire Slayer has garnered a great deal of attention over the years for being an enduring piece of feminist (or at least girl-power) media.

Terry Gilliam Has Lost the Rights to The Man Who Killed Don Quixote @ io9

Well, this is a strange new chapter in one of the strangest stories in modern film.

Fallout 76 and what it means for the future of Fallout @ Syfy Wire

According to Fallout, war never changes. Fortunately, that's not the case with the Fallout series itself. Bethesda Game Studios' latest installment in the long-running post-apocalyptic RPG franchise, the saga's ninth entry, is back with a whole heap of changes. Acting as a prequel to the entirety of the series, which began in 1997 on PC, this new tale turns everything we know about the popular game on its head, opting for a completely new way to play: This time around, everything is online.

The end takes us back to the beginning in Night 1 of 12 Monkeys’ final season @ Syfy Wire

Over the past three years, 12 Monkeys has built a mythology that doesn’t just surpass the namesake film that inspired the series — it’s not even in the same stratosphere. And it hasn’t been for a while. As the show looks to wrap up its ambitious, twisty run, the writers have cleverly taken the action back to where it all began.

Spoilers ahead for “The End,” “Ouroboros,” and “45 RPM,” the first night of a four-week event rolling out the final season of SYFY’s 12 Monkeys.

Indie Comics Spotlight: Vita Ayala on manga, representation and why Wonder Woman is Puerto Rican @ Syfy Wire

Vita Ayala is very humble. For the success that they have had in the past 14 months, they could justifiably be more cocky if they wished. Part of the first graduating class of DC’s annual Talent Development Workshop, Vita’s first published story featured Wonder Woman. Not bad if you considering the fact that their career only got started in 2016.

Axiom Space will be making possible an out-of-this-world excursion to the ISS to anyone with $55 million who doesn't mind waiting until 2020 to escape gravity for 10 days (or 15 weeks of mandatory astronaut training). The company also plans to send its own commercial space station into orbit for future travelers whose wanderlust may take them beyond the atmosphere.

Inside Meow Wolf, the legendary sci-fi funhouse that's like Willy Wonka meets Westworld @ Syfy Wire

I'm a firm believer that if you ever have enough money in your bank account for a plane ticket, you should seriously consider a trip to Meow Wolf in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Forget Disneyland, forget the Grand Canyon, and forget Las Vegas — Meow Wolf is the closest thing we'll ever get to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, and every person should see it at least once in their life.

Today, June 15th, This Day in Twilight Zone History and The Twilight Zone Encyclopedia remember actor Steve Cochran, who passed away on this day in 1965 at the age of 47.

Cochran came to the Zone with the bad boy tools that had served him best in the movies, playing n'er-do-well Fred Renard, who observes sweet peddler Mr. Pedott (Ernest Truex) in "What You Need." What Fred needs is a winner at the horse races and Pedott helps him out — but, in that time-honored TZ way, he gets a lot more than he bargained for.

Chris Pratt says he was destined to be in Infinity War thanks to… a bingo game? @ Syfy Wire

We all have little signs and indicators from our childhoods predicting what we grew up to be. If you're a writer, it could be a "book" you stapled together and tried to sell to your parents. If you're an athlete, it could be a picture of you trying to hold a basketball that's way too big for you. If you're a programmer, it could be the toy computer you banged on until the keyboard broke. If you're Chris Pratt, it could be that time you used your bingo winnings to buy a whole bunch of comic books.
