Staged as two separate tournaments under the same roof at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, the two-day event emphasized the skill, strategy, creativity, sportsmanship, and fun involved in playing the Pokémon Trading Card Game and Pokémon HeartGold Version and Pokémon SoulSilver Version video games for the Nintendo DS family of systems. Players, called "Trainers," enjoyed an entire weekend of action-packed battles in the tropics to determine the world's best. 

"We are so proud of all the players who competed in another exciting Pokémon World Championships, and we want to extend special congratulations to the 2010 World Champions who battled their way through a truly global event," said J.C. Smith, Director of Consumer Marketing for The Pokémon Company International. "Hawaii was an amazing backdrop for this year's tournament, providing a breathtaking arena for the hundreds of Pokémon players who competed with skill and sportsmanship."

Episode PictureThe latest episode of Pokémon Sunday, A Startling Yamirami! / Weird Boys appear in 'Aim For a New PokéSun Record!!' / Pokémon BW 'Information on New Pokémon' & A Battle with Tsutarja, Pokabu and Mijumaru (ヤミラミでドッキリ! / 「目指せ!ポケサン新記録!!」で変な動きをする少年登場/ポケモンBW「新ポケモン情報」&ツタージャ・ポカブ・ミジュマルのバトル), aired today in Japan.

The show started of with Golgo and Professor Red practicing their baseball skills. Red was batting and Golgo was pitching as Robert and Shoko-tan enter the room. Baba asks to have a try batting but as Golgo pitches the ball, Baba is confused because he didn't see it and Red didn't catch it. They start looking for the ball as Shoko-tan points out the ball mysteriously is on Yamamoto's right eye and he is lying on the ground.

Shoko-tan announces this weeks rerun theme, the continuation of last weeks new Ghost Pokémon theme, Testing the Shocked Feelings!? Ghost Pokémon Big Special (ドッキリ キモ試し!?ゴートポケモン大特集). A Startling Yamirami! was this weeks repeat episode which featured a Yamirami scaring people in a mine shaft. A full summary of this episode is available in the Episode Guide.

A preview clip of this weeks episode of Pocket Monsters Diamond and Pearl (ポケットモンスター ダイヤモンド&パール), DP188 - Rival Battle Conclusion! Satoshi VS Shinji!! (決着ライバルバトル!サトシ対シンジ!!) was played that displayed a few new images. The episode was also promoted throughout the repeat episode on the widescreen pillar bars. Satoshi and Shinji will finally finish the full battle rematch during the quarter-final round of the Sinnoh League. Who will win?! The episode airs on Thursday August 19th, 2010.

Returning from the repeat episode, the PokéSun crew has a 'Wack-a-Mole' like tent setup to promote the latest Movie. The tent is used as a New PokéSun Record event. Shoko-tan decides that she'd try out the game which requires her to take pictures of Zoroark with the Nintendo DSi. Robert's head pop out as distractions so she'll take pictures of them instead of Zoroark. She managed to take 3 pictures of Zoroark but she took 2 picture of Yamamoto and one picture of Akiyama's hair to give her a final score of 0 points.

TIM head off to Kamagaya Hatsutomi Chiba City Elementary School (千葉県 鎌ヶ谷市立初富小学校) for another PokéSun Record event. The first event was the Celebi Relay Race (ときのはもん ときわたりリレー) which had the teams dressed up in green ponchos and boots so they looked like Celebi. Each team held a bucket of water over their head and had to walk across a narrow board without spilling too much water. The team members pass the water bucket to each member of the team and the team with the most amount of water left in the bucket at the end of the relay is the winner. A team ended up winning the event.

The next event was Dodorio Rope Skipping (ドードリオのがむしゃらなわとび) and featured 3 people holding hands while running and skipping together as fast as they could across the gym. The event featured next was Sawamular's Megaton Kick (サワムラーのメガトンキック) which required people to kick their shoe off as far as they could. One kid was able to kick his shoe over 20 metres!

The next event was Zoroark's Camera Shutter (ゾロアークシャッターチャンス), the event that Shoko-tan played earlier in the show. The record is 9 points for the game but no one was able to beat the record. The final event for the day was the PokéWalker relay. Blue team managed to get the best score for the day with -204. The current record is -404.

During the Pokémon Game Arena, Robert visited The Pokémon Company where they were greeted by Pokémon Company Publicity Department Member Jonathan (株式会社ポケモン 宣伝企各部 前野”ジョナサン” 和志さん). Akiyama was dressed up as Shoko-tan which amused both Yamamoto and Baba for a bit when Shoko-Akiyama was revealed. Jonathan first revealed the cases for Black and White and indicated that the outside of the case was a bit different as Reshiram (レシラム) and Zekrom (ゼクロム) tails both glow a bit.

The Sprouse Brothers Hit the Beach to Film Pokémon Commercial

In their continued promotion of Pokémon HeartGold and Pokémon SoulSilver, Nintendo has decided to release a new commercial starring Dylan and Cole Sprouse, best known as Zack and Cody from 'The Suite Life on Deck'. Below is the official press release.

The only way to make a day at the beach better is to play some Pokémon. Longtime Nintendo fans Dylan and Cole Sprouse of Disney Channel’s The Suite Life on Deck did just that when they filmed a new commercial for the Pokémon™ HeartGold Version and Pokémon SoulSilver Version games for the Nintendo DS™ family of systems. The commercial will begin airing on Aug. 16 on Cartoon Network, Disney XD, Nickelodeon and Nicktoons.

“I think I like Pokémon HeartGold and Pokémon SoulSilver because we played the original Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver, so to play these games again is really nostalgic”

In this behind-the-scenes video, fans can get a look at Dylan and Cole’s day on the beach in Santa Monica, Calif., as they play the games, battle against each other and race to see who can rack up the most steps using the Pokéwalker™ accessory, a small pedometer-like device that lets players bring their favorite Pokémon with them wherever they go. By walking, players earn Watts, which are used within the Pokéwalker to encounter and catch wild Pokémon or search for hidden items that can then be transferred into the Pokémon HeartGold Version and Pokémon SoulSilver Version games.

Both Sprouse brothers have been big fans of the Pokémon series for years. “I think I like Pokémon HeartGold and Pokémon SoulSilver because we played the original Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver, so to play these games again is really nostalgic,” said Cole Sprouse.

Pokémon HeartGold Version and Pokémon SoulSilver Version offer detailed graphics, intuitive touch-screen features and hundreds of Pokémon that players can catch, battle and trade. Players can also interact with their favorite Pokémon by choosing one to follow behind them as they explore the Johto region. These combined features offer a rich game-play experience for longtime fans and newcomers alike.
