|100 PokeDex Entries Added|
|Friday, December 26th, 2003|
I have finished the PokeDex up to Pokemon #251 (Celebi), which is all of the Gold/Silver/Crystal Pokemon. It has been hard to work on the PokeDex, and I only have 135 more Pokemon to go through.
I have added a ton of Fan Art. These artworks belong to artists who have submitted their drawings from over a month ago. If you're one of them, well, what I have to say is: They're finally up!
|New Main Page|
|Thursday, December 25th, 2003|
First of all, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! And now, the main topic.
Those of you who come to Pokemon Dream often should have noticed that I modified the main page, which is the one you are looking at right now. I have taken out the Site Updates, and merged it with the PokeDream Times, which before appeared on a seperate page. I feel that more people will be able to read the news this way, and read the updates on PD at the same time.
For the rest of the year I will be working hard on the site to put up a ton of TCG information and hopefully, get done with most of the PokeDex. And next year, Pokemon Dream will be an even bigger and better website than ever before!

|6th Movie Dub Title Announced|
|Monday, December 22nd, 2003|
The English dub title of the 6th Pokemon movie has been announced by Nintendo of America. The movie, as you might know, is based on Jirachi, a small legendary Pokemon. The original Japanese title was translated as The Wishing Star of Seven Nights. The dub title was announced as a simple Jirachi Wish Maker, and of course, it is subject to change. The short movie's name has not been announced. Let's just hope that this time when they release the film in the States, they'll show it in more than 300 theaters.
