We get some quite exciting news tips submitted by you, our dear readers, from time to time. One such tip arrived in our email inbox from one such follower who was kind enough to alert us that a person they had recently StreetPassed appeared to be enjoying Nintendo's recently-announced Pokémon title, Pokémon Sun.

The tipster even supplied us with photo evidence, which can be seen below. As you can see, the StreetPassed individual - known as Yuki - is listed as playing the unreleased (and unfinished) Pokémon outing, and clicking the game brings up an error message - which isn't that striking as the game isn't available at the time of writing.

So who is this mysterious Yuki? A Game Freak staffer on holiday in the United Kingdom? A time-traveller from 2017? Sadly, the reality is most likely a little less fantastic. Remember not so long ago when several people StreetPassed a 3DS owner at a Zelda Symphony concert who appeared to be enjoying The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess 3D? It's possible to easily fake such information if you have a homebrew-ready 3DS console.

It's very likely that the same thing has happened here - some cheeky scamp has created a fake app and loaded it up on their homebrew-enabled 3DS console. A cruel trick for sure, but one that we can't help but raise a smile at.
