Dialga vs. Palkia vs. Darkrai is the first Generation IV Pokemon movie, and the tenth Pokemon movie overall.

In another dimension a battle wages between two Pokemon, Dialga and Palkia. Both exchange powerful attacks, resulting in explosions that send groups of Unown flying. Dialga manages to get the upper hand, attacking Palkia with a Roar of Time. Palkia quickly defends itself, but in the process gets one of its gems damaged. In a close clash with each other, the two of them send off powerful waves of energy.

Meanwhile, a scholar is reading an old manuscript, the Diary of Godey, which contains useful information regarding Alamos Town. His room is littered with equipment for sensing energy and books from related studies. Just when the two Pokemon in the other dimension release a burst of energy, his equipment reads off pulses of energy coming from a location close to where he is, the energy indicating a space-time anomaly. But he realizes the energy is not of this dimension, it's something different, and something very powerful.

And so, the fighting continues...

10th Anniversary of Porygon Episode

Sunday December 16th, 2007 marks the 10th Anniversary of the infamous episode, 'Electric Soldier Porygon'. The episode only aired once and has never been broadcast outside of Japan. The Pokemon anime went on hiatus while they tried to determine what caused nearly 700 Japanese children to suffer seizures. Since that episode, more than 500 episodes of the anime have aired and there doesn't seem to be an end to the series in the foreseeable future.

Electric Soldier Porygon - December 16, 1997

Electric Soldier Porygon is somewhat of a notorious episode of the Pokemon anime, due to the fact that on its single airing in Japan on December 16, 1997, nearly 700 Japanese children suffered seizures, vomiting, irritated eyes and other symptoms due to a flashing strobe effect.

The episode was never commercially released or re-broadcast anywhere in the world due to it being banned by the Japanese government.

The scene which caused the seizures was a fifteen-second section in which Pikachu used an Electric attack on some vaccine missiles. The explosion was shown as a bright flashing object which alternated rapidly between red and blue.

The seizures caused by this episode caused OLM to drop the strobe effects from Pikachu's electric attacks. Also, a disclaimer is now broadcast at the beginning of television anime precautioning viewers to not sit too close to the television screen.

With only a few days till the 10th Movie DVD is released in Japan, the Official English Pokemon website has revealed a silhouette of Darkrai. It appears that the official unveiling of Darkrai in North America will be soon. While an official announcement hasn't been posted yet, speculation is that it will be the Darkrai event for Pokemon Diamond and Pearl and/or a Movie 10 dub announcement.

Earlier this week it was revealed that the tenth movie manga has the title "Dialga vs. Palkia vs. Darkrai" which is the same title in Japan. This suggests the title will be retained for localization.

Pokemon Merchandise Topping Holiday Wish Lists

Pikachu and a slew of Pokemon characters launched onto the American toy scene a little more than a decade ago, but after three strong years, it fell off. Well, the Japanese characters are back, and Pokemon products top many holiday wish lists this year.

Reyne Rice, a toy trend specialist for Toy Industry Association, talked with Newsday staff writer Timothy Robertson about the resurgence of the popular Pokemon action figures, trading cards and video games.

Pokemon products top holiday wish lists

Newsday: Why have we seen a Pokemon comeback?
The 10-year anniversary last year put Pokemon on the map again. In 1998 and 1999, when it was originally introduced to the American marketplace, the toy category went up by 10 percent. It was the last year of double-digit growth in the last 10 years. The resurgence is because the TV show is back on for younger kids to watch. There is a whole new crop of kids interested in the show. Kids now can look at the Ultimate Pokemon Pokedex that lists all the characters and their powers. It really helps the younger kids get into the strategy of the game. Younger kids collect and look at the cards, and teens trade them. Even the older generation is getting back into it. There are ties into the online gaming area because that type of character, product line is played by the new multimedia mass player that games are going after.

Newsday: Who is behind the surge? Did the company change strategy, is it the parents or the kids?
Retailers wanted it to happen because it helped their bottom line. Also, a part of phenomenon behind the product line is that the kids have control over something that their parents do not. Kids can talk this whole secret language with their friends, and the parents are like 'huh.' It is a fun phenomenon for kids to take part in. A lot of older kids are coming back to it, too. Many of these retro, nostalgic brands are transcending generations. It's unusual for a 17-year-old kid already to have something retro in their lifetime.

Newsday: Why did the product line fall off the map in the first place? Will it stick around this time?
Products from other companies came into the marketplace - and boys can be fickle and like to move to next, hottest product. Yu-Gi-Oh! and Digimon targeted older kids, and younger kids soon caught on. Pokemon started to wane when it transferred from 4Kids to Pokemon and people couldn't find the product on the shelf. But Pokemon made a major push last year and this year, so now it's back on top.
