The FCC is clamping down on inappropriate shows/commercials on TV and it appears that they aren't just focusing on currently broadcasting videos. WPIX New York is the latest to be fined by the FCC which says WPIX has to pay a $15,000 fine for violating its limits on TV advertising in kids shows eight times.

Pokemon Ad Bites WPIX

By John Eggerton -- Broadcasting & Cable

Another former WB affiliate has fallen victim to the GameBoy E-reader ad. The latest is WPIX(TV) New York, which the FCC says has to pay a $15,000 fine for violating its limits on TV advertising in kids shows eight times. Including in those eight violationg is six program-length commercials, five of which involved the Pokemon E-Reader ad.

The FCC has fined several stations tens of thousands of dollars for violations that included the Pokemon ad, which aired back in 2002 during a show that no longer exists--Pokemon--on a network that no longer exists--The WB. The FCC says that the appearance of a cartoon character in an advertisement that runs during a show that features that character, turns the whole show into an ad.. Since shows are about 22 minutes long and kids shows can have no more than 12 minutes of ads in an entire hour--10.5 on weekends--that becomes a major overage and, in the FCC's view, a serious violation.

In response to the finding, WPIX argued, as have several stations before it, that the appearance of the Pokemon character lasted less than a second and only included the letters "mon" on one of six fanned cards, with the Pokemon character not appearing at all or named in the audio. WPIX also used the argument, also tried before to no avail, that the FCC's ruling that a fleeting "Fuck Cops" sign on Amazing Race was not indecent was precedential.

The FCC was not convinced, saying "we believe that, in the context of the cognitive abilities of young children, there is the potential for confusion between the GameBoy commercial and the “Pokemon” program regardless whether any “Pokemon” character is depicted given the image of a “Pokemon” game card contained in the commercial and the consequent likelihood that children may associate it with the program."

The FCC also said, once again, that the indecency decision was not on point because it did not deal with "the co-mingling of program content and commercial matter."

The FCC has a benchmark of $10,000 for kids TV ad violations, which it can adjust up or down. It went up this time, citing the number of program-length commercials.

Pokemon Diamond on the Nintendo DS is the top selling game on any platform in Australia with Pokemon Pearl also in the third spot. According to GfK’s chart results, Nintendo platforms claim six of the ten positions on the chart. Seems Pokemon is still popular worldwide.

Pokemon Diamond and Pearl for the Nintendo DS was released in Australia on June 21 and retails locally for A$69.95 ($58). To make voice chats easier, Nintendo also released the DS Headset (A$19.95). Pokemon Diamond and Pearl debuted in Japan in September last year, April in North America and will debut next week in most of Europe. Pokemon Diamond and Pearl have already sold more than 5 million copies worldwide.

Pokemon Battle Revolution gets Poor Reviews

Posted by | July 3rd 2007 at 09:29 AM EDT

The recently released Pokemon Battle Revolution for the Nintendo Wii has been panned by most of the gaming community as a poor game. Most Pokemon fans also agree with this assessment and in fact the game is a letdown and a step back from previous Pokemon console games like Pokemon Stadium and Stadium 2. Below are a few excerpts from some of the major game reviewing sites.

So what's the point of Battle Revolution, then, if all it does is duplicate a portion of the real Pokemon games in a less-fulfilling way? Honestly, not much. Those who have drained every last moment of enjoyment from the DS game might appreciate it as a way to eke a little more challenge from the experience. And really obsessive types might appreciate the fact that the announcer guy from the cartoon performs (highly repetitious) running commentary during in-game battles. Everyone else, though, will simply regard this as a waste of money.
Rating: 4.5/10 (Bad) 1UP Review: http://www.1up.com/do/reviewPage?cId=3160748


The real draw here should be competing with other players over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connect. Sadly, it's far too difficult to really get anything resembling a fulfilling online experience out of Pokemon Battle Revolution. Until Nintendo decides to give its online gamers leaderboards and true stat-tracking, this type of release can only be recommended to the most die-hard of Pokemon fans.
Rating: 3/5 (Fair) GameSpy Review: http://wii.gamespy.com/wii/pokemon-wii/800791p1.html


What is perhaps most disappointing about Pokemon Battle Revolution is its half-hearted job of making the fights look exciting. The Pokemon themselves, the trainers, and the colosseums all look good, if a bit aliased, but there's just no drama to the action. The game manages to make watching the trainers throw out the pokeballs look exciting, and some of the attacks have a good amount of flash. However, there are also a number of really plain-looking attacks, and those are the ones that you seem to see repeatedly. Most of all, the way the trainers interact the Pokemon in the ring just looks stagy and stiff, as if they're all just going through the motions. It's also worth noting that there's a ridiculous play-by-play announcer who goes from accidentally amusing to repetitive and grating within the first hour. Thankfully, he can be muted.
Rating: 5.5/10 (mediocre) GameSpot Review: http://www.gamespot.com/


Stadium-style Pokemon games have been around since 2000 on N64. We have watched the franchise become a worldwide phenomenon and seen its evolvution over four portable systems and three consoles. For whatever reason, however, Pokemon Battle Revolution takes a step back, actually removing content from older attempts, making the true "Stadium" experience a one-trick pony. Gone are the multiplayer mini-games, the ability to play the portable game on the big screen, the endless extra features, and overall "hub" feel of the console Pokemon experience. Pokemon Battle Revolution is neither a full-fledged RPG on Wii nor a fully-realized stadium effort, as the core of the game has been cut down to online or offline battles. The single player mode is a joke, there is a huge lack of true customization or depth, and the multiplayer mode while certainly appealing to core gamers offers very little beyond what DS had. You'll pay $50 for a stripped down seven-year-old design that offers worldwide random battles in place of a full-fledged RPG, voice chat, or any actual depth found in the handheld versions. For less money you can get well over 60 hours of gameplay on DS, and far more multiplayer (both local and online) anywhere you go. Pokemon Battle Revolution is a $50 loyalty tax for Wii Pokemon fans, and was far better seven years ago on Nintendo 64.
Rating: 5/10 (Meh) IGN Review: http://wii.ign.com/


Nintendo really letdown the majority of Pokemon fans who have been eagerly awaiting this game. Like many of the above reviews, we recommend that you rent this game and save your money for upcoming games like Super Smash Bros.
