|Celebi In Pokemon Stadium 2|
|Friday, March 30, 2001|
Nintendo has announced that the Grass/Psychic, most rarest Pokemon of all, Pokemon #251, is going to be in Pokemon Stadium 2, already released. For more information and pictures of Celebi in the game, .|
We have a new section up. Well, not really new. This section was closed after the server move a few months ago. It is called the Pokemon Dome Arena, and is a all text Pokemon battle. You can vote on who wins the next battle. There will be a new battle every month or so. I'm pretty sure that this will raise Pokemon Dome's hits more.
I have added a few new things. There is a new Yellow Walkthrough, and a huge Gold/Silver Breeding Guide both written by the staff. There is also a new Dome Book, which is a guestbook. Sign it please, all of you. As you can see, there is a new poll. In the old polls, Luri Luri won with 11 votes, and None Of Them got second for 5 votes. In the new polls, you won't be able to vote more than once.
|A Pain In The A**|
|Thursday, March 29, 2001|
People are telling me that the colors are too bright for this layout, and the pictures suck. They do, however, I don't agree with the colors. This means I'll have to create another new layout. But first, I'll need someone to make me a good top image. Right now, it is a picture of Celebi and Lugia, and it looks quite ugly. But still, I edited it with PSP 7 in school, and put some light on it. So, if you can just make me a good picture, please e-mail me at email@example.com right away. We need that picture as soon as possible!!!|
These few days, Pokemon Dome's average unique visitors has risen to about 200 per day. My affiliates didn't even get 5% of those hits for me. I'm also looking for affiliates now. So if you get between 150 - 200 or more hits a day, then please e-mail me for affiliation at the address above.
By the way, we will soon have a new Pokemon Yellow walkthrough written by very_cute_pikachu, a new staff member. Pokemon Dome will also have a very long Breeding Guide for Gold/Silver written by John Mc2. A new poll is coming in a few days, so just wait. And if you are ever wondering, Pokemon Dome did not get the name from the "Pokemon Dome" in the Gameboy Trading Card Game. I just looked up a random name from the dictionary and put it up, and the name stuck.
|Pokemon Banned in Saudi Arabia|
|Tuesday, March 27, 2001|
This weekend, Saudi Arabia officially BANNED Pokemon! They say that Pokemon contains symbols that are influencially harmful to children, such as the Star of David (No Pokemon symbol is the Star of David, and no, Kadabra's forehead does not have a Star of David), which is a forbidden symbol in their religion. Also, many female trainers show their skin(elbows, arms, legs, face, hair), and most women of the Middle East show only their eyes! Misty, having way too short shorts and all of her arm and her belly, she is considered nude. The good news is that Pokemon isn't really a big thing over there. It wouldn't be nice if it was banned in the US!|
I have set up the new Gold/Silver Walkthrough. I sort of edited it from the original version that John Mc2 gave me.

Couldn't really think of a subject for this one, read on...|
Today at school, a new teacher came to my math class. He told us to write down our name, phone number, address, favorite period, and hobbie. For hobby, I wrote "Pokemon Stuff". When he read it out, the whole class laughed. I was probably the only one in that class who really liked Pokemon. There was a few whom still does, but not as much as me.
Well, our newest and only staff, John Mc2, has written a brand new Gold/Silver Walkthrough that is much longer and more informative. I haven't put it up yet, but it should be up soon. I have added or updated a whole bunch of new things for the Pokemon games all written by the staff, so check it out.
|Bad News For Squirtle Lovers|
|Sunday, March 25, 2001|
I have very bad news for all you Squirtle lovers out there. On KIDS' WB next week, if they will air a new episode, naw, let's not talk about it. You really want to know? Well, if you are a Squirtle lover and you don't know about this yet, I will give you this warning: READING THE FOLLOWING MAY CAUSE A HEART ATTACK AND THE WISH TO KILL ASH. Okay, here it is. Squirtle, well, is going back with the Squirtle Squad. The episode is called The Fire-ring Squad, CLICK HERE to read the guide. |
Did you all see the preview of Pokemon 3 The Movie this Saturday? I thought it was weird that Entei had pink flames. Anyway, Pokemon Dome has clearly made a huge error. The short movie's name is Pikachu & Pichu, while we wrote Pichu Pikachu. I will change that soon.
The Games section will be HUGE! No, I didn't make it huge, a new staff member did! His name is John Mc2, and has written tons of cheats and a Hey You Pikachu! Walkthrough and will be writing tons more stuff to help improve the games section. Two more people are new staffs, but they haven't replied to my e-mail yet, so it'll be a few days.
P.S. Hey You Pikachu! will be coming to UK.

I just found some pictures of Neo 2 (Discovery) booster pack boxes and theme decks. The pictures are way to big to put in a small news post, so just click the links. CLICK HERE to see the theme decks, and CLICK HERE for booster box images.|
I have taken off a few things (such as thing thing where your mouse goes over it, and tells you what it is), so it will be more fast loading than before I hope. I've also added two new sections: The Games FAQ and the TCG FAQ.
|Updates For The Fourth Movie|
|Thursday, March 22, 2001|
|This picture is probably what you won't find on other Pokemon websites. It is a screenshot I took from a movie trailer of Pokemon The Movie 2001, specifically Pikachu's Exciting Hide-and-Seek. With this, I took a whole lot more. As you can see at the corner of this image, I put a PD sign to indicate that no one can use these pictures but Pokemon Dome, because I took those screenshots. I also took some screenshots from Celebi, A Timeless Encounter, and made the page for Pikachu's Exciting Hide-and-Seek. You will find both sections in the Pokemon Movies Section.|
|A Few Reminders|
|Wednesday, March 21, 2001|
To the right of the text is the Promo Entei card that you will get when you watch Pokemon 3 The Movie, coming out on April 6th. The card is really cool, but the bad news is, they'll run out very quickly. So to get one, try to go to the theaters the day the movie comes out.|
Stadium 2 is just a few days away from being released, on March 28th. Many people have reserved a copy of it, including one of my friend (which is the only person in my class other than me who still likes Pokemon). I predict that Pokemon Stadium 2 will sell very well. Talking about selling very well, I must tell you all something that you might not know. Pokemon Yellow is in the Guiness Book Of World Records for selling one million copies in one month! At least we know Pokemon will be remembered forever.
Well, here's the so called "newer" layout. The good news is that it works really well, and it's much easier to navigate than before. The bad news: It is sort of hard to click on those pop-up thingies. If you haven't experienced it, then you should click on the "Gameboy" section under Pokemon Games. You only need to click once on the pop up, but it takes around two seconds for it to respond. Sometimes it doesn't work, and you'll need to click it again! I will be creating more stuff, which means this layout isn't done.
|The Down Days|
|Tuesday, March 20, 2001|
You must have noticed that Pokemon Dome was down for quite a few days. Tripod, our host, had an error in it's server, and removed my account. But now it's all back up (Thank God Tripod, I was about to flame ya! ^_^!). But I believe that it was about their advertising banner, which won't display on Pokemon Dome for some reason. The day it crashed, I decided to move to a new server. But I guess I should just stay at Tripod, since they got my account back up.|
|The New Layout!|
|Friday, March 16, 2001|
Well, like the new layout? I think that it's the best one I ever made! What do you think? E-mail me your comments at firstname.lastname@example.org. I know the pictures really suck, but hey, what can you do with Microsoft Paint? You can also see that I have changed the background for the news bar. I added the date back, a feature in previous layouts. You also can see the words "Pokemon Dome" made up of Unowns. I will be changing the layout in the next few days. Cool? Not cool? You decide.|
Two new members has joined the topsites, and one of them is my latest affiliate! Pokemon Dome will be getting an "Unown Dex" from GSPokeCenter.com, my affiliate. The Unown Dex shows you all 26 Unowns, and what each letter stands for. Well, that's all for today.

Pokemon Dome is currently looking for staff. If you are interested, then please read about it by CLICKING HERE!|
I have updated a few episodes in the Episode Guide, and will be adding more stuff for the G/S versions. I have also updated the Neo Genesis section with information, so check that out. My first affiliate, Pokemon Dungeon, is re-affiliated with me again, this time with a new webmaster. I have changed some things around the site, and you will find that out soon. A new layout might be coming.
As you can see, we have a new poll. In the old polls, Other has won by 10, Forums following by 9. I ask you all to please vote in this new poll.
|Lycos Top 10 Results|
|Monday, March 14, 2001|
Below are the Lycos Top 10 results for this week. It looks like Pokemon is going back up:|
I have added a new section called "New Pokemon". This is where you'll find information on those three new Pokemon just released. It is under the Pokemon Information section, so please head there right away!
|4TH Movie Trailer|
|Monday, March 12, 2001|
I've just found the trailer of the fourth Pokemon movie, Celebi A Timeless Encounter at Pokemon2001.com. It takes my computer around 5 minutes to load everything, and you won't need to download. You'll get a glimps (only if you watch carefully at the end of the trailer) of the two new Pokemon, Luri Luri and Kakureon. The whale dude isn't in there. One thing I must say. There's a part where this evil villian laughs. It may scare the hell out of you, or in my case, GoOsEbUmPs. Okay, so you want to watch it? All you have to do is CLICK HERE!|
I've noticed my hits are dropping like hell these days. I may have to close the site, 'cause my parents don't let me go on the internet. That's bad. And I would like to say to all you people who joined the forums and didn't post crap (only 1 person ever did post much): F*CK YOU ALL, AND I WISH YOU ALL BURN IN HELL! I am so mad, I just can't stand it...
|Wednesday, March 7, 2001|
Tsunekazu Ishihara, General Producer of Pokemon and President of Creatures Inc., has released the names and pictures of 3 new Pokemon who will be in the new Pokemon GBA (known as Pocket Monsters Advanced in Japan), and in the fourth movie: Celebi, A Timeless Encounter. The picture of the kid is a new trainer. Next to him is Luri Luri, possibly a pre-evolution of Marril. Then you see the thing that looks like a chameleon, who is called Kakureon. The "eon" sounds like Eevee's evolution, but it's not. Finally, you see a big, fat, ugly whale Pokemon with big baleens. That is called a Hoeruko.|
Now for some updates. As you can see, I have removed the "Help Section", and combined the stuff there to the "Miscelleneous Section". I mean, there's only about 3 working links in the Help Section, so who needs it? In the Miscellaneous section, I've set up quite a few new things, and changed the site history information. You should really check that out. By the way, all you webmasters out there. If you have a Pokemon site, then please add it to our new topsites. CLICK HERE to go there.
|New Episodes From Pokemon.com|
|Wednesday, March 7, 2001|
Sorry for not updating. One thing I did update is the TCG section. I changed the format of things there, I really think that you should check it out. Stuff will be updated there when I get a chance to. I will probably get a sponsor soon, so I hope every one of you will help me click that banner. Oh yeah, as you can clearly see, I have moved the old news away, to the news archive. To see last month's news, not a lot, just go to the bottom of the page.|
Okay, here's some news. Pokemon.com, the official Pokemon site, has just updated their episode guides to Johto episode 352, or the 52nd episode (not episode number 352) of the Johto Journeys. If ya want to know what happens in the next couple of episodes, that's the place to go. The guides are very short, though. CLICK HERE to check it out.
