The Pokemon Company also released a email to media outlets and it is posted below.

Bellevue, WA- January 11, 2010 --- The Pokémon Company International announces today the complete re-launch of the online Pokémon universe with the new and improved Pokémon.com. Providing fans with a comprehensive entertainment destination for all things Pokémon, the new site brings together Pokémon animation, video games and the Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG), like never before. The new site will introduce free online mini-games, episodes of the popular animated series, a fully interactive Pokédex, a "Pokémon Trainer Club", all the latest news and more. The new Pokémon.com gives visitors a user-friendly layout, improved functionality and the first one-stop destination in Pokémon history.

"Pokémon.com unifies the Pokémon experience under one roof, providing fans with a fun entertainment destination where they can play mini-games, watch Pokémon animation, and explore the Pokémon universe," said J.C. Smith, director of marketing. "The re-launch of the site includes a number of exciting new features and functions with an emphasis on being a fun and parent-approved place to visit online."

To celebrate the new site's launch and highlight one of its most important additions - the "Pokémon Episode Viewer" - Pokémon.com will showcase the very first season of the animated series, which is now in its 12th season. Each week, new episodes of the series will air allowing fans to see where it all began. This schedule will continue beyond the first season, giving younger fans a chance to follow the series in its entirety for the first time.

The Pokémon Fun Zone, a new totally immersive and free casual games area of the site, allows kids to play mini-games and collect Trainer Tokens, rewarding fans for time spent on the site. These mini-games are quick to pick up and play, but are challenging enough to keep Pokémon fans entertained for hours. For example, in Pachirisu's Click-Clack Attack, players must shoot pucks into corner pockets of the playing board. You can earn bonus points by deflecting the pucks into each other to sink more than one in a single shot. And there are already plans to add more fun titles to keep Pokémon fans coming back for more.

Additional areas to access in the Pokémon Fun Zone include: a Trainer Builder, which allows users to completely customize their personal Trainers; a Trainer Store, where they can buy new gear for their Trainers; and a downloads page for wallpapers and screensavers.

Additional highlights fans can expect on the site include:

- The most current and up-to-date news announcements featuring information on video game character distributions, Pokémon promotions and partnerships

- The ability to keep track of Pokémon Organized Play ratings and stay aware of upcoming local Pokémon TCG and Video Game events

- New ways to search through the Pokédex containing all 493 current Pokémon including new artwork from the upcoming Pokémon HeartGold and Pokémon SoulSilver Versions

- Updated search functionality in the Pokémon TCG card database that lets players search 2,500+ cards by sorting from more than a dozen different card elements

- The first place to find information on the eagerly anticipated 2010 Pokémon Video Game and TCG World Championships and other Pokémon tournaments

The news of the website re-launch comes in advance of some eagerly anticipated product launches for Pokémon in 2010, including the February 10 release of the Pokémon Trading Card Game: HeartGold & SoulSilver expansion, the March 14 release of the Pokémon HeartGold Version and Pokémon SoulSilver Version video games for the Nintendo DS™, and the DVD release of the brand-new, feature-length film, Pokémon: Arceus and the Jewel of Life.

Pokémon is one of the top children's franchises in history. The Pokémon video game series has sold more than 197 million units worldwide since its inception 13 years ago. Additionally, Pokémon is one of the top collectible trading card games of all time. Other extensions of the property include 12 seasons of the animated television series, which is currently broadcast in as many as 153 countries in more than 25 languages. Pokémon films and DVDs continue to reach fans in amazing numbers, ranking at the top of the box office in Japan.

Pokémon Sunday 273

Episode PictureThe latest episode of Pokémon Sunday, Huge Battle at Okido's Grounds! / Yoshio Kojima & Eikō Kano Participate in a PokéSun Card Battle / Group Member Akiyama Appears in Pokémon Battle! (オーキド邸 だいけっせん! / 小島よしお&狩野英孝がポケサンカードバトルに参戦! / 秋山隊員がポケモンバトルに登場!), aired today in Japan.

The anime rerun episode for this week featured Kenji and Professor Okido in Masara Town. Rocket Gang agents Yamato and Kosaburo arrive on the scene and try to steal the Pokémon. Can Kenji and Professor Okido stop the Rocket Gang?

This week, Robert participates in a PokéSun Card Battle against Yoshio Kojima (小島よしお) & Eikō Kano (狩野英孝). Yoshio Kojima is a famous Japanese comedian known for appearing in small bathing suits and during the card battle he was only wearing a small suit. Eiko Kano is also a famous Japanese comedian and actor.

Professor Red starts off the show by revealing his latest invention, the New RED053 Double Battle System (RED053 ポケットモンスター ドバトル システム ニュー), a hard hat with a card rest. The crew asks the Professor where the normal damage balloon counters would go now that they would be wearing a hat and he shows them the new damage counter stickers that go on the hat. Director Golgo gets a large fan and 'tests' the damage counter system by smacking Yamamoto on the head as he was wearing the new hat.

Dr. Takashima (タカシマ先生) of the Pokémon Card Game company in Japan once again returned to provide insightful information about the cards throughout the battle. He quickly introduced the audience to the latest TCG expert deck released in Japan, the Pokémon Card Game Expert Deck Leafia VS Metagross + Online (ポケモンカードゲーム エキスパートデッキ リーフィアVSメタグロス +Online). Cards from these decks were used throughout the battle.

Baba starts off with Eevee (007/015) and Yoshio Kojima counters by revealing his first Pokémon, Nokocchi (007/014). Players put their card on the New RED053 Double Battle System hats Professor Red made and energy cards for the Pokémon are hung around the neck of the player with a rope. On Yoshio Kojima turn, he picked up Metagross (005/014) from the pile and Baba picks up the MCのおしゃべり (013/015) supporter card.

Throughout the battle, the players battle using cards from the new set and the attacks were carried out in various ways. The most amusing attack was used by Baba's Roserade's (002/015) PokéPower - Energy Signal (エナジーシグナル) which super poisons the opponent and with the combination of Leafia's (しょうきのかぜ) special status attack, Robert was able to deal 50 damage. The damage was conducted by hooking up a hair dryer to a stinky shoe and blowing the smell into Yoshio Kojima face.

Baba used the same Roserade / Leafia battle combination against Eikō Kano, but instead of poisoning his Pokémon, he confused it. To show that he was confused, the staff brought out a circus wheel, attached him to it and flipped up upside down while they blew the smell from the stinky shoe in his face, dealing his Metagross 50 damage. Normally when a players Pokémon is confused in the TCG, the player turns the card 180 degrees so that it is upside-down from their perspective.

The battle continued for a few more rounds until Yoshio Kojima (小島よしお) & Eikō Kano (狩野英孝) ended up defeating Robert in the PokéSun Card Battle. For winning they received a Pokémon Daisuki Club card and 6 new cards from the upcoming TCG expansion Revived Legends (ポケモンカードゲームLEGEND 「よみがえる伝説」). The newly revealed cards are: Entei & Raikou LEGEND (エンテイ&ライコウLEGEND), Suicune & Entei LEGEND (スイクン&エンテイLEGEND) and Raikou & Suicune LEGEND (ライコウ&スイクンLEGEND).

The Pokémon Sunday News segment reminded viewers of the Latios and Latias A5 stationary folder available at the Pokémon Center's until January 25th, 2010.



During the episode preview for next, Shoko was shown displaying a large card with a question mark covering it. A new announcement during the Pokémon Game Arena will be revealed on the show.
