Pokemon Dome is getting better and better. We have been in the two hundreds in Pokemon Village Topsites for two days. That means we are getting around seventy visitors a day. The new layout is done, and almost 50% of the stuff is up in the new server. Well, that's all for now.

Hey all! If you took a picture of me right now, what you'll see is a big smile. Pokemon Dome's hits has grown tremendously!!! But, the new layout isn't so good. It's very difficult to make. Make that impossible. And I still have a whole lotta stuff to upload to the new server. But for sure, the new site, this time I won't change the name, will be up by the end of January. Sorry for not saying Merry Christmas. But Happy New Year, well, soon. Visit everyday!

I have quite a few big plans for Pokemon Dome. If you guys can come here everyday and get Pokemon Dome to the 200's in Pokemon Village Topsites, I might buy a domain. Right now I'm just uploading the stuff from our current server to the new server. As I said before, Pokemon Dome will be moving. When everything's uploaded and the new layout is up, I will post the link to the site. Everything will be changed. Layout, format, everything except for the content. So be sure to come here often, then we can get a domain.

 Merry Christmas!

Greetings!!! I am sorry for not updating for a long, long time. But still, Pokemon Dome got more visitors. Well, looks like we have the bad luck of moving to someplace else again. Hypermart only hosts business sites, and this isn't business!!! So, sorry fans, we might have to move.

The contest is going great!!! Currently, my affiliate, the webmaster of G/S Poke Center is winning. I'm deciding to choose the second place randomly. So if you want the second place place prize, the topsites and hosting script, then all ya have to do is just send one e-mail. But believe me, the first prize is much better.

As you may know, Neo Genisis came out (while Japanese kids are opening Neo 3 cards). Quite a lot of news, but I don't have time to mess around with them.

DetDragon is gone, not for good, but gone for now. Snowyblaster will be fired too if he keeps up the "no updating" stuff. And right now, I'm firing Pyro.

 Some Stuff

I just got something up. It's called Webmaster's Guide. If you would like to create a webpage of your own, you can go there. Click Here to go there. Unfortunately, the HTML Help will take quite a long time to finish, since I have quite a lot of things to do.

Probably not much stuff will be done these days, since I have a football report and a volcano project. But soon, it will be winter break, and I'll be updating the site even more! That's all. Staff, please post news!!!

Well, after one of my affiliates helped me with the new message board, I'm proud to say that it is up!!! It's not 100% done, since I still need to work on some pictures in there. To make it clear to everyone, I'm going to make a big link below so you'll know to click there to go to the message board. Okay, here goes.

I've just updated the Crystal Review. CLICK HERE to read the review. The Pokemon Crystal Screenshots are also up. So click here to view the screenshots.

I've been trying to get the new bulliten board up (a UBB), but I just don't know how. An affiliate will be helping me install it. Also, below is a new Christmas song that I've created, which sounds pretty stupid:

Jingle bells,
Grimer smells,
Pidgey laid an egg,
Mr.Mime did pantomime,
and Mewtwo got away!

 Celebi Movie
 Saturday, December 9, 2000 - 6:52 AM
BY: Mewtwo
Well, I got this news, which is old, but I posted it anyway. Again, I got this from my new affiliate, Magikarp's Secret Society. It's a cool website, so please go there. Below is the summary for the movie, Celebi A Timeless Encounter.

In a forest there is a Pokemon known as Celebi. A young boy goes into the woods to find a young girl who has found a mysterious Pokemon. Somehow Celebi is endangered and flung 40 years into the future with the boy. Here they meet a 40 years older Ash and a (really) old Pikachu. Ash makes friends with the boy and they discover of this new Pokemon. However, a new enemy is in the mix and he wants to capture Celebi. Ash and the boy together protect the Celebi from this new enemy.

So, what do you all think of the new layout? Rockin' cool, or flaming hot? Or just too hard to see? I changed a few things in the new layout, as you can probably see. I did get the comment thingy up yesterday morning, but I don't feel like having it anymore. Thus, I removed it. As you probably have noticed, the polls aren't working anymore, so I'll have to get a poll from somewhere else. And these days, I've been getting more and more visitors, just like before!!!

That's all for now. Just a few more minutes until "Pokemon Johto". Yeah! And I hope it's all new!

 Pokedex Is Officially Opened!!!
 Friday, December 8, 2000 - 5:08 AM
BY: Mewtwo
Well, the pokedex is officially opened, at last! It has pictures and information on all 151 Pokemon, and I'm going to be adding Gold/Silver Pokemon into there. But I currently can only get some pictures of them, since I don't know much about them. CLICK HERE to go to the pokedex!

What am I doing right now, you ask. Well, I'm trying to get this thing to put comments on the news up. It seems pretty hard, but I'm sure I'll get it up soon. Also, the games section is all up. Except when you click on "Info" on any one of those, it would look very odd. The new games design is for the new layout, which hopefully will be up in a few days.

 Crystal Box

Pokemon Crystal BoxHey, look what I found! Pokemon Crystal's box!!! It looks pretty cool, I think it's the best Nintendo has ever made on a Pokemon game. I'll be trying to get more information on Pokemon Crystal.

Sorry, all, for updating so late. I had to take a shot in the morning, so that's what delayed me. Oh, ya, please don't join the current bulliten board, since I'm trying to set up a new one. Also, I've got some really bad news. Alexx lost the Gold/Silver walkthrough, and he won't make another one. That means Pokemon Dome'll have to live without one.

 Bad News...
 Wednesday, December 6, 2000 - 6:00 AM
BY: Mewtwo
I'm not really happy these days. One reason is that my staff aren't even updating. If Articuno don't update by the next week, his account will be removed. I'm going to make a new layout since this layout looks kinda dull. The new layout will still be layout version 2.0 since this current layout isn't really what I wanted. As you can see, I changed the images for the news. Oh, yeah, all the games info (such as Gold/Silver, Red/Blue), will be down for a few days. I will be changing some stuff in there that goes with the new layout. That's all for now.

I'm a new updater here,but do you know how long it took me to find some news? Well I have some.The Pokémon Christmas Craze still lives! It's not as big as last year's craze,(the scooters are this year's biggest thing)but Gold and Silver are on a lot of kids' wishlists. Santa's gonna be busy making counterfeit games this year!(Note: I know Santa doesn't exist. And he doesn't shop either. So why is he at malls taking pictures every year?)

 Neo Genisis

BY: Mewtwo
GUESS WHAT? The Neo Genisis 111 card expansion will be released in January 15th, 2001. Hopefully, the people here where I live will get into Pokemon because of the release of this cool set. There will be three different Neo Sets to be released, and the first one is called Genisis. It will contain all of the new Pokemon from Pokemon Gold/Silver along with new energy cards, Darkness and Metal.

 New Pokemon Movie
 Saturday, December 2, 2000 - 2:17 PM
BY: Mewtwo
Well, below is what I discovered about the new Pokemon movies at

At a press conference in Tokyo, a group of celebrities showed up to promote two new Pokémon movies. The films, Celebi: Toki wo Koeta Sogu and Pikachu no Doki-Doki Hide-and-Seek, are set for simultaneous release, and represent yet another wave of Pokémania just around the corner.
The press conference featured appearances by Kunihiko Yuyama, director of Celebi, and Shiro Sano, voice for Team Rocket's Vicious(Celebi's villain). Also appearing at the conference were Kumiko Endo and Anne Suzuki, two popular Japanese celebrities, who are, respectively, the narrator to Pikachu Hide-and-Seek and the voice of nurse Miku. The four, seated on a stage decorated in a forest theme mirroring the movie's setting in the Pokémon forest, fielded questions about the movie and offered their perspective on being in the cast.
Each of the actors was very enthusiastic about the movie and their roles; Ms. Suzuki "felt like she was dreaming" to be cast in the role, her first as a voice actress, and Ms. Endo was similarly enthusiastic, saying she "was going to enjoy being surrounded by Pokémon". Mr. Sano, for his part, was also looking forward to the experience; however, his daughter was unimpressed with the fact her father was going to be in the movie, saying "So? You'll just be a bad guy anyway."
Pikachu no Doki-Doki Hide-and-Seek and Celebi: Toki wo Koeta Sogu are scheduled for release across Japan on July 7th, 2001. It is not known at this time whether the movies will reach North America, but given the success of previous releases, there is at least a reasonable chance.

Now that that is finished, time for some update reports. Well, just wantd all of you to know, the Pokedex already have information on the first 114 Pokemon, and is going up every day. There are currently no pictures in the Pokedex, but I will be adding them soon. After watching an episode of Pokemon yesterday, I heard some jokes from Meowth, and decided to open the Pokemon Jokes section. Please go there by clicking on that link.

I've just noticed that my affiliate, Pokemon Dungeon 2000, has a new and cool layout. Please go there by clicking here.

 A New Month!
 Friday, December 1, 2000 - 6:36 AM
BY: Mewtwo
Hey, all you Poke-maniacs who visit my page! I welcome all of you to a new month, and there are many new things I would like to tell you today.

Pokedex Is Up
Well, the pokedex isn't exactly up, and this pokedex isn't exactly what I thought it would turn out to be. A few weeks ago, I was creating this pokedex, note that it is plain text and pictures. But a few days ago, I discovered the pokedex by Alan Shepherd, the best pokedex online!!! So I decided to use it, and kind of modify it. I'm going to add Gold/Silver pokemon info in there, but that'll take a while. All the pokedex have now is just information on the first 68 pokemon, but it's growing everyday. So come to the pokedex often. Click here to go to the new pokedex.

Poll Results
I've got a new poll up, so please vote there. You can find it on your right. Ash, of cource, is the winner of the last poll. Brock came out second, but Tracy came out third? I thought most people didn't like him!

Okay, there is a new battle in the arena, and a new poll in there so you can vote forwho will win the next battle. This month's battle is Onix vs. Pikachu. Go there by clicking here.

New Affiliate
The new affiliate is called Pokemon Paradise. You can check out that website by clicking on the name.

Well, that's all the news for today. That's a looooooooot of news!!!
So come back everyday for even more news!!!
