As a tie-in to the upcoming TV series Pocket Monsters Best Wishes: Season 2, a twitter account has been opened under the name "The Rocket Gang Secret Empire" (ロケット団ひみつ帝国). The account is allegedly run by Sakaki himself. The twitter account description is as follows:

picロケット団ひみつ帝国
@Pokemon_Radio

ロケット団のサカキだ!我々は、このtwitterを利用して広く団員を募り、世界征服に乗り出す。さあ、集えロケット団の名の下へ!キーワードは、“Poke’mon Radio show! ロケット団ひみつ帝国”だ! カントー地方·
(This is Sakaki of the Rocket Gang! We will be using this Twitter to recruit new gang members from all over, so we can embark on world domination! Now, gather in the name of the Rocket Gang! The keyword is "Poke’mon Radio show! The Rocket Gang Secret Empire" -Kanto Region)

This is a great idea! You can't say they aren't trying to shake up some things. Would be quite interesting to hear this, especially if it's about a thing we know little of as Rocket Gang.

There, I assume that's all the tweets we'll get today.

Yesterday it was like 3000, and as of this post its 11000 so that's pretty good progress. It seems the official announcement with an actual website and a date that it is going to air has made more people follow it.

Both the twitter account and the actual site got linked to directly in the news sections of both the official Best Wishes site and the official movie site, which is probably the main reason. Some Japanese anime news sites have linked to it as well, which no doubt helped a bit too.

Seems like they're already talking about making this accessible for people outside the Tokyo/Yokohama area. Good on them.

Probably air on affiliate radio stations through out Japan like the anime series does but with the new website there they might also post archive. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Right now it seems they're planning on a web radio.

Nyarth and Persian seem to be getting along a bit better now, at least.

That's the end of any potential Nyarth-Persian bonding, I guess.

We fell behind a bit, but the tweet translations are now up to date. And here comes Kojiro.

He's STEALING!

I assume Kojiro will be replying to tweets people send to the account, while Nyarth will be posting news about the show itself. Wonder when Musashi will show up.
