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.

New episode titles, summaries released

Satoshi to get new capture, another main character's Pokemon to leave

A scan from Newtype magazine that was recently posted to the Internet reveals two new Diamond & Pearl episode titles and gives summaries for them and two other episodes. According to the scan, Shinji will release Hikozaru, who will then join Satoshi. Two episodes later, a title hints that Kojiro will give his Sabonea to Hakutai Gym Leader Natane.

With such extreme changes to the parties of both main characters, it is likely the opening and ending themes will change. No song titles or artists have been revealed.

DP051 - Hikozaru vs. Zangoose! Fateful Battle!! will air Oct. 18. Satoshi and Shinji, who have established temporary partnership in the tag battle tournament, win the first round battle. In order to win in the second round, Shinji forces Hikozaru into harsher training. Satoshi sees this and questions Shinji as to why he treats Hikozaru so strictly.

DP052 - Tag Battle! Final!! will air Oct. 25. Satoshi and Shinji advance into the semi-finals. However, because Hikozaru cannot adjust its battle status perfectly, Shinji releases it! Upon seeing that, Satoshi tells Hikozaru, "Let's have a journey and become stronger together!" and then captures it.

DP053 - Hikozaru's Tears! will air Nov. 1. Satoshi and friends travel to Tobari City, where the next gym is. During the trip, they have a picnic with their Pokemon. However, Hikozaru is confused at the harmonious atmosphere, because this never happened in its journey with Shinji, who gave it nothing but harsh training.

DP054 - Natane and Sabonea! Who is the Farewell for! will air Nov. 8. Satoshi and friends arrive in Tajiki Town and meet Natane, the Hakutai gym leader. She is organizing a promotional Pokemon battle. Team Rocket arrives, and at the suggestion of Natane, Satoshi and friends agree to have a tag battle against the partnership of Natane and Kojiro.

Pokemon Trading Heats Up, Spreads Worldwide with Global Trade Station

REDMOND, Wash., Sept. 17, 2007 - They invaded. They evolved. And now they'll be traded - across oceans, and without regard for national borders or native tongue.

Nintendo today announces the Pokemon® GTS (Global Trade Station) Web site goes online worldwide Sept. 15 and will be a great resource for Pokemon fans interested in learning more about trading their favorite characters.

The Global Trade Station already allows the trade of millions of Pokemon between trainers worldwide. Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl are the fastest-selling games in the history of the series, with worldwide sales in excess of 10 million games. Players use their Nintendo DS portable game systems to link wirelessly to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, allowing them to scan which Pokemon are available from different nations and offer to trade with other players.

The new Pokemon Global Trade Station Web site, www.pokemon-gts.net, can be reached via any Internet-connected computer. The site will let users see which Pokemon are the most popular to trade, provide statistics about the number of trades completed and allow them to bookmark their favorite Pokemon. The site will operate in seven different languages and inform users about the nation they're "visiting" electronically. Visitors can even listen to audio files to learn how to say "hello" and "thank you" in select countries languages.

"Pokemon is now truly global in nature," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "A Pokemon Trainer from Chicago can be traveling in Sydney and trade one of their Pokemon with another owner in Helsinki."

New SSBB Update - Pokemon Stadium 2

Posted by Sunain | September 6th 2007 at 09:57 AM EDT
Comments: 0
The previous game, Super Smash Bros. Melee, featured Pokemon Stadium, but it’s been upgraded for this game into Pokemon Stadium 2. This time around, you’ll see guest Pokemon appearing in the background.

Ordinarily, it’s a fairly orthodox stage when nothing special is happening. But as time passes, the terrain transforms into four different types: "Electric," "Ground," "Flying," and "Ice."

When it transforms into Ice, things get extremely slippery!

A mountain of earth appears in the middle of the screen for the Ground stage!

On the Flying stage, everyone’s jump abilities get boosted!

For these four transformations, we’ve chosen types that were not present in Melee. Terrain that changes suddenly makes fights excitingly unpredictable.
