|Update On Contest|
|Monday, September 26, 2005|
The Pokemon XD Contest has officially begun today! I have received over 40 entries by now. However, I want to point out that most of them do not follow the requirements. The rules on the contest page clearly says to respond to the topic question using ONE or TWO (no less, no more) sentences -- there's a reason for that. However, I've been receiving paragraph long responses, and some don't even get to the point.
Of course, if you entered and followed the rules, then you are on your way to winning!
|Pokemon Rocks America|
|Thursday, September 22, 2005|
Sorry I haven't posted any news during the last month, Hurricane Katrina knocked down all the telephone lines and I didn't get internet until a week ago. Then my father had to go in Houston to work every week from Monday to Friday because his old work was in New Orleans, and so I had to go there. Then I had to leave because Hurricane Rita was coming, so I got back early.
At Pokemon Rocks America, they will be giving out three downloads. They are:
-a Metang with a special move you can download on to Ruby, Sapphire, Emeralf, FireRed, or LeafGreen if you try out the demos
-the Mystic Ticket that allows you to go to Navel Rock and capture Lugia and Ho-oh for FireRed, LeafGreen, or Emerald(someone e-mailed me asking when was the next time they were giving these out)
-a Munchlax-shaped racing course for Dash (you must have defeated the Grand Prix first)
They will also be having a GBA tournament, which begins at 10:15. Every 30 minutes, tournaments will start, and from 1-3 they have the "Battle on the Big Screen" where winners will get prizes.
They will have TCG tournaments as well, starting at 10:00 am.
I'll see you again soon.

Many of you know, many of you not. The Nintendo DS owners will probably jump in the air and hit their head in a wall, but there's a new Pokémon Game coming out! It's called Pokemon Ranger! The exact release date isn't know yet (but hey, even those from official sites may be wrong), but it is guaranteed to be a succes! You are a Pokémon Ranger and have to protect the nature from bad guys like the Shredder (OK, maybe not), but they are bad guys. This game can be linked up with Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, which are also for Nintendo DS, but there still isn't much known of any of these games, but do stay tuned for more.
|New Season : First Episode Title!|
|Friday, September 9, 2005|
The title for the first episode of the new season is called Clamperl of Wisodom!
Ash has his Torkoal and his friends along with him on a ship.
A Spoink is then sighted, and is rescued by Ash, Misty, and Brock. The Spoink jumps with happiness, and its pearl falls from its head and into the water.
This causes Torkoal to cry a lot.
Torkoal then jumps into the water and searches for the missing pearl.
Then, Ash jumpes in to get Torkoal out of the water. Torkoal suddenly cries, noticing that his mission had failed.
To know what the rest of the show is like...watch it!
