Birthday Pikachu Promo... #2?
Nintendo's Gamecube out in Japan, and has been included into the war!

Well, sorry for not updating for the past 2 days... There just wasn't anything to update... and remember, PF!1.8 comes out tommorrow! Another new Japanese promo has been released! It's Birthday Pikachu....2 (As if one weren't enough). It will be included in the new official Pokémon comic on 9/23/01. I do wonder why they didn't use the VS or Neo card formats though... Anyway, here's a link to the new promo. Thanks to PA! for the scan... click here to view it! Well, I'm sure the rank has dropped big time... Top 100 - 113... PokeSky - 16... Top 50 - 295... well, it seems like they didn't drop BIG time, but SMALL time... Well, the Gamecube generation has begun in Japan! And also the war, PS2 and Gamecube... and pretty soon, in November, Microsoft's first and newest gaming system is going to be included into this war... 3 Gamecube games has been released with it, Luigi's Mansion, Wave Race: Blue Storm and Sega's Monkey Ball. The sales demand was still high as expected, but much of Gamecube's attention was drawn away by this week's events even all the way to Japan. Nintendo's Gamecube should be released on November 18th in America. Remember, PF!1.8 comes out tomorrow!

Tragedy... Part 2

Canada showed respect to USA... everyone in Canada lowered their Canadian flags to mid-way (I'm a Canadian). The partly disliked President George Bush had actually said that he isn't sending ANY Americans who is hurt in this tragedy to Canada for medical care because he said he DOESN'T want any other countries to help... Yah... I always disliked him even though I'm not American. With all the limited medical care available in the US some who are hurt just might not get the treatment and die when they could've gotten the right treatment in Canada... why did Americans vote for Bush? I have just been told from my friends that the terrorists might've picked September 11 because it was 9-1-1... I would just like to give a moment of silence for all those who have been killed in this very terrible tragedy. I would like to give my condolences to the families who have been affected by these incidents. Let's move on... Village is still down... Top 100 - 106... PokeSky - 14... Top 50 - 191...

I'm sure if not 100%, 99.9% of you will know about the crashes and bombings in the US today. At 8:45 AM in New York City, a Plane Crashed into one of the two Twin Towers (AKA - World Trade Centers). At first, it was thought to be an computer/mechanical error, 18 minutes later another plane crashed into adjacent building. Some people on the lower floors were able to be evacuated luckily, but the people in the higher floors were unfortunately unable to evacuate in time. About an hour later, another plane en route from Newark, New Jersey to San Francisco, California crashed somewhere near Somerset County, Pennsylvania (Just outside Pittsburgh). Then, another airplane hit a section of the military section of the Pentagon Building. Today is certainly a day that will go down in world history, nothing like this has ever happened since the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Over 10,000 people are either dying, injured or dead. President Bush has promised that we will hunt down and punish those responsible for this attack. I have a friend in New Jersey who lost a few relatives in this incident, he is truly heartbroken. It's hard to believe that this is even real... If you lost someone in this horrible tragedy then I would like to offer you our condolences. For more information on this "day of hell", see the following links...
TechTV News
The New York Times
If you think a family member was at one of the airplanes/pentagon please contact the following telephone numbers, in the US: United Airlines: 1-800-932-8555, American Airlines: 1-800-245-0999, Pentagon: 1-800-331-0075 . To donate blood: 1-800-GIVE-LIFE. But anyhow, it DID not effect the things on the internet, so we're still updating. The only thing I hope now is that there won't be a 3rd World War... (It's scary to even think about it...) Well, here's the Lycos for this week...

Whoh! You should've looked at the news yesterday! We probably didn't have that much news in ages! And here's something that you'll like! A spoiler of the new VS set! Thanks to Usugi-Chan from Pojo! Click here to view it! Village is still down... Top 100 - 99... PokeSky - 10... Top 50 - 176... hmm... only 11 hits today... There was a Mewtwo special that aired in Japan a couple months ago, and it looks as if it is being released in North America. has a video named "Mewtwo Returns" that will be released December 4th, 2001. Judging from the Pokemon Johto Champions schedule, this special episode would be aired around that time (though now it's on VHS/DVD). You can check it out for yourself, maybe even pre-order if you are interested, by clicking this link (DVD) or this link (VHS). Tune in to Cartoon Network tonight at 7:30pm EST/PST to watch the debut of Pokemon on Cartoon Cartoon Friday. I'm not sure what episode they will be showing, so you might want to check it out.

Bringing impossible things back...

If you're wondering why I'm updating so late... it's school [drag]... Anyways, ever wonder why you've never seen the Pokemon Episode "The Legend of Dratini" on KidsWB? There are several reasons.  The main reason is that too many people are playing with guns (Jessie, James, & the Warden of the Safari zone).  The Warden fired off several shots at Jessie & James early in the show.  Team Rocket catch the warden, tie him up, and give him a taste of his own medicine.  It would be extremely difficult to edit this episode as guns & bombs play a major role. I think the Japanese were actually poking fun at gun-wielding Cowboy-type Americans, and there is somewhat of a moral value at the end of the show.  It would require a ton rework to show this episode to kids.  It's too bad really, cause it has one of the best endings of any Pokemon episode.  Tomorrow, I'll post about 10 key images from the episode, and we'll tell you exactly how Ash caught all those Tauros and you can learn the Legend of Dratini. Thanks to Pojo for the picture pictured above.

More on Pokemon Mini!

I have found an article from PokeMasters and they have some more information on Pokemon Mini, with a full sized screenshot. It now seems like that Pokemon Mini won't be releasing in Japan nor US/CAN. But I have been hearing something about it being released in Japan... I don't know. The article says that it's only going to be released in Europe until further notice. Anyways, read it yourself here. (It won't take you outside our site). Village is still down, so... Top 100 - 56... worst by 1... PokeSky - 8... worst by 1... Top 50 - 232... same... And now, according to Top 100, we have 66 visitors so far today, and from PokeSky, 81 views.

YESTERDAY we were at the thousands with Top 50!!! The average still can't be checked because Village is down... but we've got 22 hits so far today! And according to PokeSky the pages have been viewed 449 times! Well, since I don't have any news for you this early morning, and I've just updated last night, you should see last night's update. If you haven't seen it yet, it seems like that NoJ is making a new creation, and NoA hopefully will release it in USA and Canada. I'll defiantly update this afternoon.

A new NoA Creation!
What is with the ranks? 189 visitor today? That's impossible!

The First day of September! It means that 16 more days 'till the release of v1.8! But it also means that school'll start soon... Let's do some math... Pokemon Pikachu device + cartridge slot + rumble pack = new Pokemon Mini, Nintendo's latest handheld creation!! Nintendo announced the latest twist in its already-deep Pokemon product line today at its pre-ECTS press conference in London. The device, called Pokemon Mini, looks and acts a lot like the Tamagotchi-like virtual life toy, Pokemon Pikachu. But rather than just make another toy in the same vein, Nintendo has instead turned the concept into a standalone cartridge-based game system. Pokemon Mini features a D-pad, three buttons (two on the face with one large C button on the right side of the unit), a shock sensor that registers how many times you shake the unit, an infrared port for communicating with up to five other Pokemon Minis, a built-in rumble feature, and a 96x64 LCD display. The system has a built-in clock, and is designed to work with game cartridges. Nintendo showed off four such cartridges today. The games are extremely simple and definitely aimed at a younger, Pokemon-craving audience. The Pokemon Mini will be released in Japan sometime this year and will hit Europe next year. No US plans for the Pokemon Mini have been announced at this time. Screenshots here! Village - down... Top 100 - 83!!! When have we went to the 2 digits? Well, I've recently joined two other top sites, PokeSky's and Top50 Networks... let's look at their ranks since Village is down... PokeSky - 8!!! Whoh! Yesterday we were at 16!!! Top 50 - 1067... [yah, I know] ... better by 400 something! No average today, but according to PokeSky, our site has been view over 300 times, and we've got 189 hits!!! Into the early 3 digits we go!

Ha, the server was down yesterday, so I couldn't update... and today I did a defragment with my hark disk and it took practically the whole day... [sigh...] Good thing it ended just on time... And, I still updated yesterday, (I'm not THAT lazy, am I?) but I didn't upload it... if you want to see it, it's here.

The average was raised to 13... and 9 hits today... not bad when there's no updates... I hope that it doesn't drop THAT much tomorrow... (in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen) And here's some news... Today in Spaceworld2001, About 3 minutes of footage was shown for the sequel to Super Smash Bros. Super Smash Brothers Melee. Here is a pic by IGN! There will be many more characters in this game! Zelda, Link, and Ganondorf from the Zelda Games are also said to be appearing in Smash Bros. Melee! Also Kirby, Pichu, and many more Pokemon characters are going to be in this game.

A new Pokemon game that interacts with E-Card?

Heh... If you were wondering why it said 9:40 PM in the last update, that was a typo.

This morning's "typo" update is one I'd die to share! Village - 548... same... Top 100 - 180... better, hey! The average is still 8... and I can't believe this! 22! Wowie! Thank-you fans!!! [cough] Ok, back to news, which I do have some of... A bit of info has come from Spaceworld about an upcoming Pokemon game that will utilize the E-Card Reader. Not much was discussed on this upcoming Pokemon game, but apparently it will be called Pokemon Summer Road and will interact with the new TCG cards. It's not know when the game will be released, but it's expected to be released in Japan by summer 2002. More info as it comes. You can play Pokemon the Trading Card game with a friend though your GBA except you can use real trading cards instead of the simple electronic ones on the Pokemon TCG Video game! The Pokemon Trading Cards in this Trading Card series will look just like the Pokemon VS Cards except they will be equip with a bar code which is the key part when using the E-Card.

Southern Islands!

Here's to boost you up. Pojo finally got his hands on a Southern Island Collection set today. He said that he must admit that it's pretty cool.  He already owned the Japanese version of the Southern Island cards, and since there really weren't any power house cards in here, he said wasn't even turning my head to look at this.  But when he stumbled across this, he just had to own it.  Not only do you get the 18 cards from the Southern Island collection (including 6 reverse holofoils), but you also get:

  • A cool full size binder that holds a lot of cards
  • A cool slip case to slide your binder in
  • 6 postcards 
  • 9 pocket pages
  • and 3 random booster packs of cards

All in all, not too shabby for a retail price of $19.99.  If you are a collector, I'd recommend picking this up. Village - down...Top 100 - 229... uahh... bad... I'll come back later today...

When you swipe one of these cards with the Card E Reader you can access little mini games featuring the Pokemon on the card, and access Pokedex data.

Well, for "Toronto-ians" and "Ottawa-ians", acutally... because these two cities made it to the qualifiers! Click here for the almost full list of the other qualifiers. Thanks to PA! for bring this up. And... another Coro Coro Promo! A Celebi! Click here to view it from PokeAddict.Net! It's also an E-Card! Folks at PA! also has a scan of it and here it is!

(Special Pokémon 2001 Jumbo card)
'Mystic' Celebi (NO)LV HP50

W Restoration Light ()
Each player may take [1/any number of] Basic Pokémon from his or her discard pile and put them on his or her Bench. (A player can't do this if his or her Bench is full.)

(Weak:R Retreat:1)

Odd that a Celebi would require water energy, but it does. Also, thanks to Dr N Ashtear, the proper 'prefix' of the name was found. It is not Mystic, but infact 'Time-Surpassing Celebi', or something along those lines. ^_^ Here is an excerpt from his post explaining how he came to that conclusion:

"The first character is Toki, meaning Time
The second is wo. It is an article that is putting your attention on Toki (actually, it makes toki the direct object of a sentence).
The third (you'll like this) is Kosu, a verb meaning to surpass.
The fourth and fifth are e and ta respectively. I have no idea what these are as I do not speak Japanese. I think they have something to do with the conjugation of kosu.
After these are the katakana that make up Celebi's name.
Anyway, an accurate translation of the name would be Time Surpassing Celebi (more like Celebi that Surpasses Time)."

Thanks a bunch to PA! today!

Well, first off, the ranks had gotten worst... look... Village - 535... Top 100 - 197... The average dropped by 2! Only 9!!! And we've only had 5 hits so far... please get more! Well, it's almost time for school [sigh], and then the ranks will get even lower... I've just received a notice today that the past 2 episodes were actually the premieres of Season 4! And I do have some sort of bad news... v1.8 will NOT release on the 1st of September... but it will be once again planned to be released on the 3ed Sunday of September, which is the 16th. I don't think there will be anymore need of pushing. I'm actually done the whole thing, for those of you who think I haven't even started it yet, but it's for some purposes that I can't tell you about until the version is released.

Wowe ranks!

No news but ranks again this afternoon... maybe I'll boost something later today... Village - 508... same... Top 100 - 187... same too... The average is still 11, but we did manage to get a mere 3 hits... and we still need more.

Wowe ranks!

Whew! This is probably the earliest update I've ever done... Look at the ranks! Village - 508... wow! Top 100 - 187... this is awesome! I couldn't thank you enough! But, I just hope our opening rank for v1.8 will be below 500... Our average has increased a lot... from yesterday's 8... to today's 11! But, since it's just the start of Sunday (the day virtual traffic are low), we don't have ANY hits yet...

New Pokemon Episodes!

Well, just to remind you again, as said in yesterday's news, v1.8 will be released sometime in September, and the Version History is screwed up so don't bother going there. Village - 544... worst... Top 100 - 204... better? Well, the average went back to 8, but woah! 14 hits so far today! And it's only the evening! Let's hope that we'll get more tonight so our rank would go higher again. WB viewers might've seen Pokemon this morning for two new episodes of Pokemon to start out the new season called "The Johto League Championships". Check out your local listings to find out when "A Goldenrod Opportunity" and "A Dairy Tale Ending" will be airing since it is different from station to station. That's it for now, but I might come back tonight...

v1.8 will be out soon!
Crystal is SOLD OUT!

Very soon, sometime in September, we're going to release our newest version, v1.8! It's planned to be released on September 1st, but we might still push it back a little if necessary. The version history page is currently messed up now, so the information there won't be accurate. I've also decided that since it's screwed up, I'm not going to fix it until the release of v1.8 because I'd want you to have a little surprise. Village - 530... I knew it... worst... Top 100 - 226... by 5? Why? Well, Village site is down today so I can't check the average. And to "sparkle" you up, Nintendo announced recently that Pokemon Crystal has already sold over 600,000 copies in the two weeks it has been out. And people say Pokemon is dead...

A clip of the Harry TCG release in London!
An article on the "Modified" Format!

For Non-Harry fans, I really should say sorry for posting so many Harry info. The only reason why I do it is because a lot of people ARE Harry fans, and I don't have quite enough stuff to open a Harry site... and here's some Harry info... skip it if you want with the links from Today's updates... Wizards of the Coast sent Pojo the following email  last tonight:  "As you may know, the Harry Potter Trading Card Game became available for everyone to collect and play last week. We had a great event in the UK to celebrate to get kids playing and to get people excited.  We have a video clip 
that will soon be on the official Harry Potter website,but we'd love it if you had a link to the video as well.
So, without further adieu, Click Here to see see the Video. Pojo also has some really neat piece of article that I think would help a lot of as a lot. Ness from Pojo has written up an article on the modified format... read it here. Village - 519... better... Top 100 - 221... worst? Hmm... I wonder when we're going to get back to our 500- ranks? The average today had raised, but only 5 hits... so it may go back down tomorrow. Good thing it's still the late-afternoon-early-evening...

NEW out! Wizards of the Coast is not allowing people ages 15+ to participate in either the U.S. OR U.K. STS PTQ's! That sucks! US is enough but now they have to stop it in UK as well?

Scyre Talks about Harry!
Southern Island Scans!
Top 5 Renting Video Game Titles!

How does Scyre (right) plan to sell issues this month?  By putting Harry potter on the cover of course.  There are only 5 pages of Harry Potter inside, but it's a good read.  Something I found interesting from inside: The Harry Potter Base Set design & development team are "all veteran Wizards of the Coast R&D members and have extensive experience designing & developing TCG's including Magic The Gathering.  Development on the Harry Potter Game began in November 1999, so the game has been nearly two years in the making."   You definitely get the Magic: The Gathering flavor impacted on this game. Village - 574... why has it gone down by so much??? Top 100 - 206... worst by 5 only? Wierd...

Well, since the ranks had majorly decreased, I decided to boost you with some news. There will be a new Pokemon CD out soon (October 9). The title will be Pokemon Christmas Bash.

master_trainer_mike says, "Currently Modified allows you to use cards from Team Rocket, Gym Heroes, Gym Challenge, Neo Genesis, Neo Discovery, and Southern Islands as well as all promo cards we have released EXCEPT"

master_trainer_mike says, "for Ancient Mew and Birthday Pikachu."

master_trainer_mike says, "Also Neo Genesis Sneasel is Banned!"

master_trainer_mike says, "AND you cannot use any promo cards that are just stamped or colored variants form sets not allowed (so no Pre-Release Aerodactyls for example)."

master_trainer_mike says, "This format will change over time as new sets come out, watch the chat and our web site for future changes."

master_trainer_mike says, "Keep in mind the QT's will be sanctioned as well."
Well, there you have it... Village - 534... worst... Top 100 - 213... better? Well, the average has dropped today to 14... and we only have 4 hits today? Why? What's happening to Pokemon Forever? Why is this happening to me?

Whew! Good thing I was able to squeeze some time to update. This afternoon, there was a talk about Phil... and you'd probably want to read it if you missed it and you're a TCG player. If you watch the cartoon often, here is some news that you might be concerned about. This Saturday on Kids WB a new episode of Pokemon will air that was previously skipped for some reason, The Psychic Sidekicks. You'll have to check your local listings for when it airs since I've seen different times when I was confirming this information. Thanks to PokeMasters for pointing this out. Village - 523...

Phil Mondiello?

One of the hottest Pokemon topics on Message Boards these days involves Phil Mondiello.  Phil was the #1 Pokemon CCG player in the world.  Phil recently received a 4 year suspension from the Wizards of the Coast DCI. "Infraction: False Tournament Reports - Providing False Information to the DCI".  Phil was a 13 year old judge trying to boost his friend's Pokemon & Magic The Gathering DCI rating. Phils was trying to get his friend a bye at the East Coast Super Trainer Showdown. What did Phil do?   He put his friend in tourneys that his friend never played in, and sent in false reports by giving him wins he never received.   He falsified the number of participants in a tourney to ensure it was sanctioned. Wotc's DCI discovered this and banned Phil for 4 years from playing in DCI sanctioned events.  Some folks think that is fair punishment for the crime.  Some thought it was too harsh.  While others think he should be prevented in playing in future Pokemon Leagues and receive other penalties. Thanks a lot to Pojo for letting us know such an important article. Village - 523... surely has gotten worst... by 23 too... Top 100 - 233... better by 1??? I just hope that the ranks'll be better tonight when I come back... Well, the average today dropped from yesterday's 16 to today's 15... it's dropping everyday by 1... what'll I do? And only a mere 4 hits too... But maybe more people will come at night...

More Gen Con!

Master Trainer Mike announced a new Pokemon DCI format on the Wizards of the Coast Message Board over the weekend.  The format looks as if it will be "Rocket On" (Team Rocket, Gym: Heroes, Gym: Challenge, Neo: Genesis, Neo: Discovery, Southern Islands, and any American Promo release) ... Here's MTM's quote:

"Starting September 1st you will be able to start sanctioning the new Pokemon format. We are finalizing the floor rules for it as we speak (well not RIGHT now, right now I am at Gen Con running the Pokemon Gym). Hint: You won't have to worry about those overplayed ER/SER/Wiggly/Sneasels in this format.  We have have heard what you are saying.

Master Trainer Mike"

After visiting Gen Con, Pojo has something to say, " I spent all of Saturday at Gen Con. Tourneys were held in a huge gaming area on the first floor, where I'm guessing more than a thousand people could play CCG's ... all at the same time (Pokemon, Magic, DBZ, Raw Deal, etc.).  Dealers, and Game Companies took up the entire second floor.  Wizards of the Coast had a large chunk of this area.  Master Trainer Pat was there running some Pokemon Challenge action.  It was $5 to play.  You got a Birthday Pikachu badge (a real Birthday Pikachu card inside a badge you hang from your neck), a blind pull at a rare card (foils & promos included) a booster pack, and got to challenge other people.  Not bad for $5.  Below is a photo I took of the gaming area. 

Village - 500... not bad... Top 100 - 234... 11... Well, from yesterday's average of 17, it has dropped to 16??? And we have 6 hits... not bad, but I think that there's still room for improvement.

Gen Con!
GS Ball Unlocked!

First of all, sorry for being off yesterday... And secondly, I, personally missed Gen Con, but folks at Pojo didn't miss it, and they've got something to say, "A few of us spent the day at Gen Con today.  We met the good People at WOTC (MTG, Pokemon, Harry Potter), and Score (DBZ Card Game) and Comic Images (WWF Raw Deal Card Game), as well as some of our cool advertisers.  It was a ton of fun. Over 170 people entered the Raw Deal CCG tourney.  This game is riding a nice wave of popularity.  We snapped dozens of pictures ... we'll try posting some tomorrow.  It's time to kick off my shoes and enjoy a cold one!" Well, it sounded like a lot of fun... too bad I missed it. In other news, now that we know Crystal has some secrets to it, we've also discovered the Gameshark code to get the mysterious GS Ball on your Crystal game cartridge. To access it, type in the code 917393D8 on your v3.1 or higher Gameshark to put the GS Ball in the first slot of your backpack. I haven't tried this code myself because I'm not a sharker, but if you would like to try it, feel free to do so. Some say you'll need 16 badges in order for Kurt to accept the GS Ball. If anyone receives positive results when giving the GS Ball to Kurt, please contact us and we will give you full credit as always. Thanks a whole lot to PA! for this information that might attract sharkers. Village - 508... hmm... Top 100 - 243... yah, worst... Well, it's probably of two reasons... first, because this is the long weekend, and secondly, and mainly I think is because I wasn't here yesterday... and the average is... 17??? Oh my! But we only got 2 hits... again probably of the 2 reasons... Yesterday, the version history got changed... for people who want to know approx. when v1.8 will release (which I am already working on now), that is the perfect place to view it.

Now I took a quick look-see at, and let me tell you what I saw? No Pokémon merchandice! Mein gott, what's next? Why did this happen? .... It's probably because of all that curse'ed Harry Potter stuff, isn't it?! Oh, opening ranks now... pretty excited...Village - 500... now what I wanted it to be... Top 100 - 219... this one is better... Hey, what do you know! Our average has gone up to 13 today! And a so so good 7 hits... I just hope we'll get more tonight. If you came from our geocities page, you'll notice that I've changed the demi-splash page.

PF! Top 5 updated!
Code Red Virus!
nick15 is laying off staff!
Southern Island cards out?

OK, first thing's first... There's been a NEW virus that is spreading rapidly! It's the Code Red Worm! This morning, it had spread all over Switzerland, and by 8:00PM (About half an hour ago) it spread all around the whole world! This virus doesn't harm your computer (At least that was the results so far) and it ONLY harms Computer servers... like the one we have here... let's hope it doesn't get to us... Even though that it doesn't harm your computer, or at least doesn't now,  if you found it on your computer, you can Warm Boot your computer to get it out of your R.A.M. (Random Access Memory). That's all I got for now... if you have ANY information about this... many, MANY people would appreciate it! OK, back to Pokemon. PA!'s webmaster, nick15, had to LAY-OFF some staff! Here's what HE has to say! "Due to company cut-backs and the impending recessions set for the US economy, Poké had to unfortunately lay off 500 workers, a whopping 7,124% of our company. This will ultimately save the company up to an estimated $5 to $10, slowing down production in an effort to save the company from going bankrupt. Hopefully at the end of this recession (estimated to occur around 2005), we will be able to rehire the staff and resume business as normal." Sad... Well, you ask where's the Harry Potter? HERE! We've got another one here! Well according to this fellow from WizPOG, the Southern Island gift set is already out at select Wizards stores. Hmmm! .... So pick one, or even two up today! You know you need those reverse holo Mews! Village - 495... yah... I know it's better by 4... by this ain't what I'd expect... Top 100 - 226... this is wierd... And, for some reason, I can't get the averages from Village today... maybe the worm got them.
