|Two New Games Confirmed|
|Monday, May 26th, 2003|
The president of Gamefreak (the company that started Pokemon), Tsunekazu Ishihara, has confirmed the making of two new Pokemon games.
The first game is on the GameBoy Advance, and is the sequel to Ruby/Sapphire (just like Crystal is the sequel to Gold/Silver). The next game might come as a suprise to many people. It is a GameCube RPG for Pokemon! I'm sure that every Pokemon fan was hoping for that. And now, it has finally been confirmed.
|Pokemon Heroes: Box Office Nightmare|
|Monday, May 19th, 2003|
Pokemon Heroes, the fifth Pokemon movie, was released last Friday in only 196 theaters. It's box office estimate landed in the #12 spot, making a total of only $225,000 over the weekend. Compare that to The Matrix: Reloaded (#1 spot at 93,000,000), and you know there's something really wrong. Of course, The Matrix has been released in 3603 theaters.
I must say that after Marimax took over the job, everything went straight down the toilet. Releasing a Pokemon movie in only 196 theaters? What were they thinking. I really dislike them for this, and hopefully Pokemon Company will hand the job back to 4Kids with the sixth movie.
|Previews & Screenshots For New Games|
|Wednesday, May 14th, 2003|
After looking through the web, I came upon some information and pictures regarding to the new Pokemon games of Pokemon Colosseum and Pokemon Pinball RS. I have added screenshots and previews for both of them. Go to either the Screenshots or Previews/Reviews sections to check it out. The screenshots for Pokemon Colosseum came from NewTechNix.com, a French site.
I have also added a new News Report, called Old Pokemon Sites. There isn't much information on either game right now, but as information comes out, you can be sure to find it on Pokemon Dream.
|Four New Poke-Games!|
|Tuesday, May 13th, 2003|
The latest issue of Japan's CoroCoro magazine reports that at Nintendo's E3, three new Pokemon games have been announced. This is great news for all Pokemon fans.
The first game is a Pokemon Pinball game on the GBA in the form of Ruby and Sapphire. That's expected to be released this Summer in Japan. Then there are two Pokemon GameCube games. Pokemon Colosseum, as they are called, is probably a Stadium type of game. This one should be out in Autumn in Japan. Finally, we have this game called Pokemon Channel: Together With Pikachu. The date of release in Japan is on July 18th.

I have made many updates to the website. First of all, I have added a new sponsors, which is the rotating advertisement at the very top of the page. This, just like any other sponsor, helps me gain money to pay for Pokemon Dream's domain and server fees. If you're interested, you may click on that and it'll take you to a search page that'll give you related links. The other new sponsor is way day at the bottom-righthand corner of the page next to the large advertisement. It is a search engine. Whenever you need to find a top-quality website, search here. The other search engine is for searching files on Pokemon Dream, which does not work yet.
I've made huge updates to the Ruby/Sapphire Game Guides. I have edited every single page of the walkthrough to include Pokemon locations, and have corrected a few minor errors. The World Map is finally up, so you can check that out. That's all the updates for now. Currently, finishing the R/S Walkthrough and completing the PokeDex is my top priority.
|Wizards Done After Skyridge|
|Monday, May 5th, 2003|
Here's some good news, and bad news that's stuck together. Originally, Wizards of the Coast was to produce Legendary Collection II and Jamboree before turning Pokemon TCG production to Nintendo.
A recent press release stated that Wizards will no longer be producing Pokemon TCG after the release of the recent Skyridge. That could mean that Nintendo will not produce LC II and Jamboree, and will start with the ADV set. Wizards has done a great job in producing and distributing Pokemon TCG all these years, and hopefully, Nintendo will be just as good.
