|A Few Updates|
|Tuesday, March 30, 2004 @ 11:19 PM EST|
|I've added more content to the Fire Red/Leaf Green Walkthrough, which is near completion. I've also renamed the Download Center into Music Center since all the downloads are music files, and we won't ever have any other file types for download. That's all the updates for today.|

|Pokemon Dream In Another Language|
|Sunday, March 28, 2004 @ 7:32 PM EST|
|I have added a translation feature to nearly all of Pokemon Dream's pages. This can be found on the sidebars under the words "Translation". Choose a language, and it'll translate that page into the language chosen. I'm sure that many Pokemon fans who don't speak English will appreciate this new feature, and hopefully, can begin enjoying what PD has to offer.|
|Big News for Pokemon on the GBA|
|Saturday, March 27, 2004 @ 10:27 AM EST|
Despite what you have heard from many rumors, Pokemon Green Leaf will not be changed at all when it hit stores in North America! Both Red Fire and Green Leaf are scheduled to be released during Fall 2004 in North America. But then again, these released dates always change, so I'm calculating that it'll come out in Winter 2004. |
In other news, Nintendo has found yet another way to make us spend our money! This time, it has little to do with games, even though it's on the GBA! Video cartridges can be played on the GBA, so that you can watch videos on your favorite hand held console! The videos will be in color. The first two Video Cartridges to be released will be from the Pokemon TV Series! (Seriously, what else will they be? Well, the Legend of Zelda's a good idea...oh right, back to Pokemon! Sorry!) One will feature the episodes "Playing with Fire" and "Johto Photo Finish." The other will feature the episodes "A Hot Water Battle" and "For Ho-oh the Bell Tolls." This are due to come out during in May, so keep your eyes open.

|Pokemon Colosseum Released|
|Monday, March 22, 2004 @ 10:16 AM EST|
Today is March 22nd, the release date of Pokemon Colosseum in the US. This means that those fans who've pre-ordered it will get the game shipped to them, and some stores might have it in stock. Stores will definitely have it in stock in a few more days.|
Pokemon Colosseum looks like a great game, and I bet that it will sell real well (just like any other Pokemon game). Unfortunately, I don't have a GameCube, so I won't be doing any walkthroughs on the Story Mode. Hopefully, someone can contribute a walkthrough so that Pokemon Dream will have complete info on Colosseum.
|Attempted Murder Caused By Pokemon|
|Friday, March 19, 2004 @ 12:59 PM EST|
A thirteen year old boy attending South Omiya Junior High School in Saitama City, Japan attempted to kill several classmates on March 5th. The boy was insulted by six classmates who reportely likened him to a Pokemon character. The boy brought a Japanese sword belonging to his grandfather from home, and injured several of his classmates.|
Many attempted murders, murders, and suicides occured because of Pokemon before. Because of this, many countries think that Pokemon is evil. I feel that it's just these people who have problems, and can't solve it in any way other than violence.

I have changed Pokemon Dream's layout to a gold-colored one, and have made new banners to come with it. I have also cleaned up the HTML (the language used to build this site) a bit. It has quite a long time since the last layout change, so I decided to do something newer and better. I feel that this gold color is very attractive, and hope that all of you feel that too.|
In addition to the layout change, I have added three new Pokemon Advanced episode guides.
|Pokemon EX: Team Magma VS Aqua|
|Tuesday, March 9, 2004 @ 7:35 AM EST|

One Absol can be found per booster box (you must have the box), and Jirachi can be found through normal booster packs. Pre-release events are currently being held. Check to see if an event is near you.|
I've set up a Topsites. This is used to rank other Pokemon websites. I've noticed that almost every large sized Pokemon sites have this, so I put one up too. If you're a webmaster, then join now.

The new trailer is just an extended version of the previous one, this time revealing the two other "versions" of Deoxys, which can be found in the games Fire Red and Leaf Green. Pokemon Dream will have more information on this movie soon. The website can be found by clicking here.|

|This will be the sixth American released Pokemon movie. It is currently out in Japan. Yet, the rumor is it is coming straight to DVD here.|
|Sunday, March 7, 2004 @ 12:38 PM EST|
The previous poll was: What's your favorite region? Over half of the voters selected Hoenn as their favorite region. Johto and Kanto was voted for evenly. This time, a total of 627 people voted. A new poll is up, so please vote.|
So what's my favorite region? Well, I'd have say that I like every region the same amount. They are all great places to live (if it were real), travel, and catch Pokemon.
|Colosseum Release Date in Europe.|
|Friday, March 5, 2004 @ 9:22 PM EST|
|Pokemon Colosseum will now be released in Europe on May 14, 2004. So all of you PokeFans in Europe will have to wait a few extra months for the Poke game of the year. I am not yet sure if this has been confirmed by Nintendo, but then again I found it on the offical Europe Gamecube site...|
|Finally Back Up|
|Friday, March 5, 2004 @ 7:11 AM EST|
After a long bit of down time and some problems with server changing, Pokemon Dream has finally switched servers! If you are reading this message, then you know we're on a new and blazing fast server. Our current host it a great company called HostItNow Networks. There definitely won't be bandwidth problems here, as we currently have five times more bandwidth than before, which for now is more than enough. |
Now that everything's set up, I can finally relax. Well, relax for a few days and then continue doing the Fire Red/Leaf Green Walkthrough, which hasn't been worked on in a long time. Yes, Pokemon Dream's back, and it'll be better than ever before...
