Wii-kly Update: Photo Feature, Gifting Ablities and three classic games added to Wii Shop Chanel inc

Get ready to celebrate the arrival of a bunch of fun new features on the Wii Shop Channel. This week marks the debut of the first Pokemon game for the Virtual Console: Pokemon Snap, which originally was a hit on Nintendo 64. This Pokemon photographic adventure comes with a special Wii bonus: It now includes a special feature that allows players to post pictures they take in the game to their Wii Message Board and send them to friends with whom they've traded Friends Codes.

Later in the day on Monday, Nintendo will make your holiday shopping just a little bit easier. If some people on your gift list have visions of classic video games dancing in their heads, you're in luck. Starting this week, Wii Shop Channel patrons can use a new Gifting feature to send games to other Wii owners with whom they've traded Friend Codes. It's an easy and inexpensive way to give your fellow Nintendo buffs the gift of a classic game - no wrapping paper required. And don't worry about duplication. If your friend already has the game you're trying to give, you'll get a simple message and be bumped back into the catalog to continue shopping.

Nintendo adds new games to the Wii Shop Channel every Monday. Wii owners with a high-speed Internet connection can redeem Wii Points to download the games. Wii Points can be purchased in the Wii Shop Channel or at retail outlets. New this week is Pokemon Snap.

Pokemon Snap (Nintendo 64, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 1,000 Wii Points): As one of the most unique games in a renowned series, Pokemon Snap was the first truly 3-D Pokemon game and introduced the phenomenon to the Nintendo 64. Travel to Pokemon Island and meet Professor Oak to begin a safari, taking the best possible photographs of 63 different Pokemon as they exist in the wild, undisturbed by humans. This is not as easy as it sounds - the island has many types of climates and environments to explore, along with secret activities and hidden passages to discover. Plus, some of the Pokemon can be a little shy and won't pose for the camera unless you tease them with special items. After you're done, submit one picture of each Pokemon to Professor Oak, and he'll judge it based on size, pose, technique and number of Pokemon captured.

Bonsly added to Super Smash Bros Brawl

The Offical Super Smash Bros Brawl website released new information on the game today. Bonsly is in the game and will an item that other characters can use.

Why is this Pokemon named Bonsly? Those familiar with the world of Pokemon understand that while it appears to be a bonsai tree, Bonsly’s body is made up of rocks and stones.



Bonsly walks around. It’s pretty heavy! When you throw it at someone, it won’t fly far... But it sure does hurt!



Even if an opponent’s damage meter is below 50%, this thing packs enough power to potentially knock him or her off. You may only get hit once in a great while, but if you do, watch out!!


Oh, and it’s not like it can’t be reflected.

Movie 11 Title Announced on Oha Suta

The Japanese TV program Oha Suta revealed today the title of the 11th Pokemon movie, Giratina and the Sky Bouquet. Oha Suta is a children's TV show which airs weekday mornings and it is produced by TV Tokyo. Kōichi Yamadera is the host of Oha Suta and has starred in all the Pokemon movies to date in various voice acting roles.

"A preview played during the show which featured Giratina, Dialga and Palkia and said the fight among the Pokemon gods has not ended. Due to the "bouquet" reference in the title, the movie is likely to debut the event Pokemon Shaymin as previously speculated." (Bulbanews)

"Giratina and the Bouquet of the Sky" is not the full title of the movie. The finalized title won't be announced till March or April, as per usual. "Theatrical Edition - Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl - Giratina and the Bouquet of the Sky - Shaymin" does seem to be the most logical full title for the 11th movie and it will premiere in Japan in July of 2008.
