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.

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.

Famitsu gives Pokemon Fushigi no Dungeon 35/40

Comments: 0
The latest issue of Famitsu gave the new Pokemon title from Chunsoft a review score of 35/40. For reference, 2005's Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games received the same total score.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Time Expedition and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Darkness Expedition are a matched pair of Pokemon games for the Nintendo DS. These two games are under development by Chunsoft for release in Japan later in 2007.

The games are a sequel to Pokemon Mystery Dungeon. They will include the new Generation IV Pokemon and have Wi-Fi and dual-screen features. The story is promised to be even more developed than the prequel, and the issue of the thinning of the relationship between the player and his or her partner will be taken into consideration.

Both games are scheduled to be released on September 13th, 2007 in Japan. An anime special based on the games is also scheduled to air this week on Pokemon Sunday. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Time and Darkness Expeditions is also the sequel to the anime special based on the previous Mystery Dungeon games.

FCC fines yet another Television station!

The FCC is clamping down on inappropriate shows/commercials on TV and it appears that they aren't just focusing on currently broadcasting videos. A couple weeks ago, we reported that WPIX New York was fined $15,000 by the for violating its limits on TV advertising in kids shows eight times. The Federal Communications Commission then slapped a $12,000 proposed fine on KWSB-TV San Diego for violating its children's-TV ad limits. It appears that the FCC is continuing to fine other channels that aired the dreaded GameBoy E-Reader ad during the Pokemon anime.


FCC Fines KHCW For Pokemon Ad

Houston station fined $12,000 for airing Pokemon advertisement
By John Eggerton -- Broadcasting & Cable, 8/31/2007 1:02:00 PM

Add another $12,000 to Pokemon's tab. That is how much the FCC has proposed fining KHCW(TV) Houston, Tex., for violating the FCC's limits on commercials in kids TV shows, including a program-length commercial triggered by an ad in the Pokemon show.

The FCC has fined numerous stations for an ad for the GameBoy E-Reader on the defunct WB Network that aired during the show and featured a fleeting glimpse of a Pokemon character. The FCC has said that any reference to a character in a show in an ad within that show turns the entire show into an ad (got that?).

The station also admitted to airing two other program-length commercials and exceeding the ad limits--10.5 minutes per hour on weekend, 12.5 on weekdays--by 90 seconds. The benchmark fine for the commercial violations is $8,000, but the FCC bumped it up, citing the number of violations.

The FCC took no action against Fox's KTTV(TV) Los Angeles for admitted ad limit violations. Although the station said it had exceeded the limits eight times, that was for a six-year period and amounted to under two minutes total. The FCC said that was minimal and took no action.

The commission also admonished--an official black mark--but did not fine Paxson's WPXJ-TV West Palm Beach, Fla., for failing to report the age ranges of its kids shows to electronic program guide publishers. All the stations volunteered the violations when filing for license renewals.
