A new card has been revealed from the upcoming Platinum Arceus TCG expansion.

The Fire Horse Pokémon Rapidash (47/99) canters its way into
Platinum—Arceus and, with its fiery mane glowing menacingly, is sure to heat up your game! Each of its two attacks has a low Energy cost and this means that this Stage 1 Pokémon can have an instant impact on your game. Its Searing Flame attack requires only 1 Fire Energy to do 10 damage and leave the Defending Pokémon Burned. For only 1 Energy more Rapidash can deliver a quick 40 damage. And with no Retreat Cost, it can flee to the Bench with the swiftness you'd expect from a Pokémon so graceful!

The Kyoto Cross Media Experience 2009 was held this week from Saturday, September 26 to Sunday, October 4, 2009 in Kyoto, Japan.

"Kyoto has become a leading region in Japan for the creation of content such as movies, games, and manga and has long been endowed with rich resources related to this content such as tradition and culture, sightseeing, fashion, robot research, music, and cuisine. By pursuing the cross-media development of content such as movies and videos, games, manga and animations, this project aims to widely disseminate information on the attractions of the new content industries both in Japan and overseas and to promote human resource development to support these industries and their exchange. " (Kyoto CMEX)

Pokémon Scramble (乱戦!ポケモンスクランブル) stations for people to play the game and a Yellow Forest (きいろのもり) download station. Players could have the course transferred for use on their PokéWalker. A Pikachu hat was also distributed to the children at the event.

Pokemon Sunday 259

Episode PictureThe latest episode of Pokémon Sunday, Bulu's Magnificent Life!? / Is the Third Man following Professor Akido and Handsome Yamamoto Finally Making his Entrance? / A New Pokémon Card Game Series Debuts! (ブルーのかれいなせいかつ!? アーキド博士、ハンサム山本に続く第三の男、ついに登場!? ポケモンカードゲーム新シリーズ登場!), aired today in Japan.

In today's episode of Pokémon Sunday, Professor Akido and Handsome Yamamoto starts the show off by putting Baba in a large life size PokéWalker to see the effects it has on humans. Shortly after, Akiyama and Yamamoto are informed that they will be joined by a new member of the group, and surely enough, the monster ball maker Gantetsu from the Jouto region makes his entrance. He is put on a test to prove that he is the real Gantetsu, having to complete a (jigsaw puzzle) monster ball while protecting a Yadon (Akiyama) from being hit by a water balloon placed over his face, right in the path of a model train, at the same time. He does relatively well, but eventually fails, and it's revealed he was really Baba in disguise all along. Following that, the cameraman Genzou from HeartGold and SoulSilver appears, and is asked to prove his identity by taking a picture of Director Lucario, located behind a series of screens, while having a rubber band tied to his pants. Once again, the new member fails and is revealed to be Baba. Finally, the Pokéthlon overseer Kejime arrives, and is put to test. He is to participate in a game of Push Circle, a king of the hill-style Pokéthlon event from the games, which he fails miserably at, and eventually reveals that he is Baba to be allowed to leave the stage. Will Baba eventually get his own PokéSun persona?

The rerun serial "Pokémon Selection" started a new theme, "The Happy Pokémon of the Jouto Region", with today's episode focusing on a Bulu unhappy with the life of luxury she's living, who's eventually allowed to live her life the way she wants to. Until she decides to go chasing after Nyarth's tail, at least...

Dr. Takashima joined the rest of the group for today's Pokémon game Arena, where the new card game series "LEGEND" was introduced. Noteworthy additions are the new Great Pokémon and Legend types of cards. Both are more powerful than normal cards, and the Legend cards each consist of two pieces, both of which must be played together. Also new is the addition of "mirror cards", reverse foil editions of Pokémon and trainer cards which have been part of the international releases of the card game for a while.

The episode also debuted a new series of skits starring Yadon Akiyama, similiar to the Yamirami skits that have been running for a while.

Also, the Pokémon Sunday studio was updated with figures of Lugia, Ho-oh and Pichu to commemmorate the release of Pocket Monsters HeartGold and SoulSilver.

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.
