Information about this years Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade has been announced. Once again Pikachu will be a featured balloon. 'Pikachu w/ Poke-ball' giant balloon will parade through downtown New York City. Since 2001, a Pikachu balloon has been flown in the parade, demonstrating the popularity of Pokemon. The original Pikachu balloon was used from 2001 until 2005. Last year a Pikachu with Poke Ball balloon was introduced and this should be the same balloon used in the parade this year.

If you are in New York City, this will be a great time for you, your family and friends to see Pikachu larger than life. If you cannot see it in person, NBC will be broadcasting the parade from 9AM to Noon on November 22nd, 2007.

Pokemon Ranch Channel, Pokemon Bokujou Channel in Japan is a small game based on a Ranch to help with the raising of your Pocket Monsters. "Pokemon Ranch Channel" is the temporary title and is subject to change. Wii owners will be able to hook up their copy of Pokemon Diamond/Pearl and upload their favourite Pokemon to raise on the Ranch. Mii characters can also accompany your Pokemon, as well as pet them. Snapshots of your Mii with a Pokemon can be taken and sent to friends.

The game seems similar to the Pokemon Daycare center, but interactive and in full 3D on the Wii. More information will become available in the next few months before it is launched.

Movie 11 Production Team begins location hunting

Posted by Sunain | October 8th 2007 at 12:54 PM EDT

The Official Pokemon Movie website has been updated. Most Movie 10 material has been removed and has now been replaced with a teaser trailer for movie 11 and some location hunting photos from the production team. It would seem that the Scandinavian countries are going to be the location that Movie 11 was based on. Last year the team visited parts of Spain.

The picture location hunting team left Japan which was still quite hot, and started on their journey north. The flight time to Denmark was only ten hours considering how far it is from Japan. It is almost a straight line north of Japan by flying over the arctic. The team arrived in Copenhagen, Denmark at night where they would then travel to Bergen, Norway.

Location hunting team arrives at city of Bergen later that night. Because they arrived at night, it wasn't until the morning that they had a sense that they were visiting foreign countries. However, it was unfortunate because it was raining outside. There was wind too and it seemed to be very cold.

The team did not stay long in Bergen and shortly left to the destination which Yuyama was heading for. They left early in the morning and went to the town of Voss in Norway. The cold and trees made the air feel refreshingly. They then took a train to a small but beautiful port of Flam in Norway.

Hamamatsucho Pokemon Center

A few weeks ago, The Toyko Game show was in full swing. While covering the show, Game Informer Online visited the new Pokemon center that recently opened in Hamamatsucho. Below is the article from their coverage. You can view an extensive gallery of their visit to the Pokemon center in their article or on the Imageboard thread.

TGS07: Pokemon Center Photo Gallery

With TGS right around the corner, Game Informer Online has been poking around Tokyo, seeing the sights, plugging yen into capsule toy machines, guzzling curry and playing the role of the gaijin gamer. With some time to kill before our appointments today, and since we’ve already done plenty of Akihabara coverage in the years past, we decided to head to the land where you can actually catch them all, the Tokyo Pokemon Center.

Originally, the first Tokyo Pokemon Center was housed just outside of the main Tokyo train station, but recently Nintendo moved the house that Pikachu built to a small prefecture outside of Shimbashi, called Hamamatsucho. If you’re in the Tokyo area, it’s a quick trip from the JR Yamanote Line train. With train stations having a number of exits, it’s nice to know Pikachu will lead the way to the correct exit out of the station. Leaving from the station’s north exit, you go straight across from the station and take a right, and within approximately 100 yards, the Pokemon Center is in a business building on the left called the Shiodome Shiba-Rikyu Building. Considering there are massive amounts of families and children, it’s hard not to figure out where to go. Pokemaniacs, this is your heaven.

If you’re looking for Pokemon merchandise, this is your palace. Anything at all conceivable by man has Pokemon all over it. From the movies, games, cards, and soundtracks, to school supplies, plushes, udon bowls and corn flakes, it exists in one place. The new location is a bit larger than the original Tokyo location, which allows for more and more Pokemon merchandise to be housed. Considering how many people were see inside the store on this early Tuesday morning, we believe Nintendo is raking in some serious cash every second this store is open.

Sadly though, this is not a Nintendo World Store, and the focus is on merchandise, and not on the games. You can pick up limited edition Pokemon themed hardware, as well as Wiis and accessories, and purchase all of the Pokemon games, but there were no kiosks available to actually demonstrate the games. This seems like a perfect place to allow gamers to try out the latest Pokemon titles or even try out Pokemon games from the past. Granted, most likely if you’ve made the trek to this store you’ve got a number of Pokemon games in your arsenal, but it would be a perfect place for Nintendo have a historical area to show where it all began.

While Nintendo decide to convert their New York Pokemon Center into the Nintendo World Store, Japan houses the only Pokemon Center in the world. Truly the place to catch it all, if you love Pokemon and you’re in Japan, the Pokemon Center is a must visit place.
