Fire Red/Leaf Green Release Date
Friday, April 2, 2004 @ 8:21 AM EST
Nintendo of America has recently announced the release date of the games Fire Red/Leaf Green in the U.S. According to NOA, the games shall be released this September, and the name of "Leaf Green" shall remain, instead of being changed to "Water Blue" as expected by many fans. Just like in Japan, included with the games will be a Wireless Adapter to trade Pokemon, chat, and play mini games.

Yesterday was April Fools Day, and I thought of making up a little joke (see news post below), which I've never done before. It seems like a lot of people were tricked! I must tell all fans that I will never shut down Pokemon Dream. Why? Simply because Pokemon rocks! I don't think I'll ever stop liking Pokemon, because Pokemon is the best. Unless I die, or something very bad happens to me, you can bet that Pokemon Dream will always be online.

Pokemon Dream Shutting Down
Thursday, April 1, 2004 @ 10:18 AM EST
After many days of deciding and thinking about the future of Pokemon Dream, I've decided to shut it down permanantely in a week. Pokemon has lost a lot of popularity, and I don't think I like it that much anymore. Pokemon is getting farther and farther away from me everyday. I'm sorry to all the fans, but PD will be no more. APRIL FOOLS!
