First of all, Happy late Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed whatever they did for Thanksgiving. During every Thanksgiving, Macy's holds a huge parade filled with baloons.

New information on Pokemon Colosseum has been released. This information is about the RPG mode in the game. In this mode, you’ll play as a 17 year old. You’ll start your journey with an Espeon and an Unbreon, and a partner will accompany you. A mysterious group is controlling Dark type Pokemon. It is your job to steal (or snatch) those Dark Pokemon, with the help of your partner. Then the Pokemon will turn back to normal, and you’ll be able to use that those Pokemon.

Also, I have the new U.S. release date for the game. It will be released on March 22nd next year. It may be four months until the release, but trust me, time will fly!
