picThe popular #PocketMonsters Imageboard has returned and is better than ever. For those that aren't familiar with an Imageboard, it is a type of Internet forum that revolves around the posting of images. You can submit or view Pokemon related pictures, photos, and fan art as well as post comments about them.

As part of this new board, we decided to start off the archive fresh. You can reupload old Images if you wish as they will be permanently archived on this new Imageboard. Please acquaint yourselves with the Imageboard's Rules as they will be enforced. Eventually, we may add more features to the board. A link to the Imageboard has been added to the Main Menu for future reference. We hope you enjoy the new Imageboard.

imageboard.pocketmonsters.net should now point to the new Imageboard, so your bookmarks won't have to be updated.

Episode PictureThe latest episode of Pokémon Sunday, Diamond & Pearl Returns 'Hikari! Contest Debut!!' / Following Handsome Yamamoto for One Day! / Pokémon Game Arena 'The Children's First Platinum Battle Against Group Member Yamamoto!' (ダイヤモンド&パールリターンズ 「ヒカリ!コンテストデビュー!!」 ハンサム山本の一日を追え!ポケモンゲームアリーナ「山本隊員が子どもたちとの初プラチナバトル!」), aired on Sunday in Japan.

This weeks Pokémon Revival episode is ヒカリ!コンテストデビュー!! (Hikari! Contest Debut!!) which is the eleventh episode of Diamond & Pearl.
Satoshi and Hikari decide to have a practice battle outside before the Pokemon Contest. Aipom shows that it wants to be in contests and Satoshi decides that they should enter. The Pokemon Contest begins, but who will be victorious?

In this weeks episode, the Pokemon Sunday gang follow Handsome Yamamoto around for a Day. He carries out a few tasks to varying degrees of success. In one task, he gets a foot massage and attempts to read a book at the same time. In another task, he attempts to bench press 60KG. We probably have not seen the end of Handsome Yamamoto!

Pictures from this episode have been added to the episode guide. You can can also comment and discuss this episode. Also be sure to rate this and other episodes in the episode guide.

Movie 11 Dub Title Confirmed, DVD Announced

posterThe newest Pokemon movie is on its way, and it's a mix of action, adventure, and drama that will definitely grow on you!

It won't be long until new Pokemon are added to the family, and true to form, there's a movie coming -- Pokemon: Giratina and the Sky Warrior -- that explains their roles in the Pokemon universe. We're not giving away secrets, either (not yet), but you will definitely be amazed by the powerful battles, the touching friendships that are forged, and the devastating destruction that threatens to turn the world upside down -- and inside out in this movie! Whoops! See, we went and said too much already! Make sure to bring plenty of popcorn for the premiere of Giratina and the Sky Warrior, coming soon to DVD!

The current voice actor for Ash Ketchum in the English dub, Sarah Natochenny, posted her voice over resume on her website earlier this month with the title for the upcoming 11th Pokémon Movie. The title has now been confirmed and the English dub title will be "Giratina and the Sky Warrior". Her website indicates that the movie would be coming out in 2009, but by the tone of Pokemon.com's news release, we may see it sometime in December to coincide with the Japanese DVD release and the Christmas gift rush.

Giratina and the Sky's Bouquet: Shaymin (Japanese:ギラティナと氷空の花束 シェイミ ) is the second Pokémon movie of the Diamond & Pearl movie trilogy, and the eleventh Pokémon movie overall. It premiered in Japan on July 19, 2008 and the Japanese DVD will be released on December 19th.
