Pokemon now ranking in the Top 5 action figure brands in Canada

Pokemon Pandemonium is Back for Holiday 2007


...now ranked in Top 5 action figure brands, total Pokemon sales in Canada are expected to almost triple this year...

TORONTO, Oct. 15 /CNW/ - Pokemon(R), the global pop culture phenomenon that created a frenzy when it hit Canada in 1998, is back, and it's resurging with significant speed with a new generation of fans. With the new broadcast of the 10th television season entitled Pokemon: Diamond and Pearl on YTV this fall, Canadian sales of new Pokemon merchandise are expected to escalate even further.

The Pokemon brand in Canada is expected to reach $30-million in retail sales in 2007 which represents double and, in some categories, triple the business it did in 2006 - including sales of video games, the Pokemon Trading Card Game, toys, home decor, and apparel. This resurgence was fuelled by this spring's launch of the Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl video games for the Nintendo(TM) DS, featuring more than 100 new Pokemon characters, and the introduction of a new expansion of the Pokemon Trading Card Game in May.

Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl are the fastest-selling video games in the history of the series, with worldwide sales in excess of 10 million games, and Pokemon Trading Card Game sales up an astounding 300 per cent.

"Pokemon is a classic in the world of video games - since it launched the brand has always been among our top selling video games," said Nintendo of Canada vice-president and general manager Ron Bertram. "The two key drivers behind the wild success of the Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl video games are the renewed popularity of the brand, and the extraordinary nature of game play that is enjoyed by longtime fans of Pokemon, plus a whole new generation of kids." According to NPD, Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl video games are the top two selling portable video games in 2007 to date.

Already a top-rated program on Cartoon Network in the U.S., the Canadian debut on YTV of the 10th season of the animated TV series called Pokemon: Diamond and Pearl, is generating impressive ratings since its start on September 28.

"Pokemon toys started the year off within the top 10 most popular action figures, and then the momentum of the launch of the Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl video games nearly tripled sales of toys and catapulted Pokemon into the top five action figure brands," said Eddie Hayden, Director Marketing, JAKKS Pacific, Inc., a multi-brand company that designs and markets a broad range of toys and consumer products including Pokemon products. "As a result of this new wave of Poke-mania, we're working around-the-clock to make sure we have enough toys to fill the influx of Holiday 2007 orders from Canadian retailers."

Pokemon is the collective name for the 490 characters that one can find, catch, train, trade, collect and use in battle against rivals in the quest to become a Pokemon Master. After launching in Japan in 1996, Pokemon came to North America in 1998. Its arrival spurred a shopping frenzy that is still remembered by an entire generation of kids and their parents.

"A large assortment of Pokemon product is available at Toys R Us Canada," said Joe Ferraro, Divisional Merchandise Manager for Toys "R" Us Canada. "The new Pokemon entertainment and toy products coming to market are fresh and compelling to kids."

Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl introduce a new generation of fans to a new generation of Pokemon, featuring over 100 new characters hailing from the region of Sinnoh - a new land of blue lakes, mysterious forests and snowy hills.

Pokemon merchandise is available at major retailers across Canada.

Movie 11 Production Team continues location hunting - Visits Sognefjord in Norway

The Official Pokemon Movie website has been updated. This week they have posted more information about their visit to Norway.

Traveling to Sognefjord
The weather wasn't very good, so the team didn't leave immediately. They left after lunch before embarking on a ship that sails through the fjord. They were lucky enough to see a rainbow and they thought it looked exactly the same as they drew them in the Pokemon anime.



The weather got better and the location hunting team had the cameras rolling while on the ship. However, the blowing wind is quite strong. "Sognefjord" is longest and deepest fjord in the world.

Small town Sogngal
Location hunting team had traveled from Bergen to the town of Sogngal. While there Yuyama and Shinji Miyazaki played billiards, however, 'Jet lag' seemed to affect their play.
