New Trailer For 7th Pokemon Movie!

-04/16/04-

 

There is a new trailer for the 7th Pokemon movie. In the second trailer, most of the scenes shown are the same as the first trailer, however, there are some new scenes shown in the second trailer.

 

One of the most interesting moment in the new trailer is a quick glimpse of Deoxys, holding what appears to be a rock or piece of a meteorite, and there's a golden object shaped like an egg stuck in it.

 

The ending of the trailer, which shows the battle between Deoxys and Rayquaza, shows much more than the first trailer.

Pokemon PT Cruiser Winner!

-04/16/04-

 

The Pokémon-e TCG: EX Team Magma vs Team Aqua PT Cruiser was sold on the online auction site eBay (the proceeds go to Starlight Children's Foundation), the auction began on February 24th with a starting bid of $5,000 and ended on March 5th with a winning bid of $10,729. The winner is Bonnie Duritsky of Toledo, Ohio, a mom who is also Pokemon fan. She has been running a Pokemon TCG League for the past year and was participating in the league for four years. Definitely a good owner for the PT Cruiser. Now she can ride to the TCG League with her kids in a one-of-a-kind Pokemon themed PT Cruiser. The PT Cruiser comes equipped with a Nintendo GameCube, five GameCube games, two Wavebird wireless controllers, and a 27" television.

 

And luckily for Bonnie Duritsky, Nintendo paid for the shipping for the PT Cruiser, which was transported by a large truck.

 

Here's a link to the eBay listing for this PT Cruiser: Pokemon PT Cruiser

Pokemon Fire Red/Leaf Green Release Date: September!

-04/01/04-

Screenshot of Fire Red/Leaf GreenWireless Adapter with GBA SP

 

Nintendo doesn’t joke around, they mean business.

 

Pokemon Fire Red/Leaf Green will be released in September 2004, and the Wireless Adapter for GBA will also be included with the games.

 

At a New York City analyst briefing on April 1, 2004, one of the announcements included this:

“The Game Boy Advance Wireless Adapter, which allows players to compete head-to-head without the use of cords, will be packaged with the September release of Pokémon Fire Red and Pokémon Leaf Green. In Japan, more than 2 million copies of Pokémon Fire Red and Pokémon Leaf Green featuring the Game Boy Advance Wireless Adapter have been sold since their launch at the end of January. The June 28 release of Mario Golf: Advance Tour for Game Boy Advance also will make use of the adapter, which will be sold separately.” (Full Story Here: Nintendo Announces Innovative Updates for 2004)

 

This release date makes sense because Pokemon Fire Red/Leaf Green will be given out as prizes at the Pokemon TCG World Championships in late August.

 

Analyst Briefing on April 1

It’s probably not the best date for Nintendo to announce things, on April Fools day. But be assured, this is no joke. The last thing Nintendo wants to do is cause mass confusion. (Update on April 2: For the skeptics still out there. As expected, not a joke. Or else, it would have cleared up by now. Pokemon Fire Red/Leaf Green is announced for a September 2004 release.)
