All 133 Platinum scans are now up! Thanks everyone for sending them in! We could still use the "real" scans of Shaymin Sky Forme and Dialga G though, so if anyone can send those in that would be great! In a few weeks, all of the scans will be replaced by Shakespeare's high quality scans, so please bear with the lower quality of a few of them for now.

I'd also like to announce that Redshark's Platinum release will come with Mac compatibility. However, it won't be released for another week or so. Now you Mac users and Windows users with Mac friends have something to look forward to! :)

Because this was a busy school week and I missed a lot of news stories, I'll post them either later tonight or tomorrow. This week I also have more midterms and projects due, but I have my repaired laptop now, so I should be able to update just as often as before.

Update #8: Drapion LV.X and shiny Vulpix uploaded thanks to ApachePrime, Nemenku and her children, Trent E., David V., and Gina G.
Update #7: Weavile G, Shaymin (Sky Forme) LV.X, Scyther, and Dialga added thanks to D-Koolest and Zephilim. Only missing Drapion LV.X and shiny Vulpix.
Update #6: Gardevoir added thanks to Charizard87. We are just missing Weavile G, Drapion LV.X, Shaymin (Sky Forme) LV.X, and Scyther. COME ON YOU FUELS! SEND THEM IN!! :D
Update #5: Dialga G LV.X, Palkia G LV.X, Rampardos, and Memory Berry added thanks to "Captain Random."
Update #4: Three more scans added thanks to "Dave" and his son. They also sent in an error reverse holo Dialga card, which is Colorless instead of Metal. The regular version of the card is Metal, so this seems to only be a reverse holo error like a few other cards in the past.
Update #3: Added shiny Swablu thanks to Kirbypopstarhero.
Update #2 Added 6 new scans thanks to "Matt."
Update #1: Added 11 new scans, including holo Dialga #5, thanks to "Poochyena." Also fixed some errors in the set list.

The Platinum set list is now up. We currently have 99 scans, so if you have any of the cards we are missing (which are in black), please scan them at 300 DPI and send them to wpmpb@pokebeach.com. Thank you! I'll constantly update this story as we receive scans.

Update (9:00 AM): Added 9 more scans, including Empoleon, Torterra, Skuntank G, and Power Spray.

Alright, finally! Platinum scans! Over 75 of them! Tomorrow morning, if I have time, I'll put up more. I am too tired to finish the rest right now, as I had to wake up at 4:30 today to study for a midterm. All the holos I have are up though, so if you get holos at the prereleases tomorrow that we don't have, please scan them at 300 DPI (or about double the size of the current scans) and e-mail them to wpmpb@pokebeach.com. Thank you!

Click the thumbnails below for larger scans. Then, use your arrow keys to scroll through the enlarged scans like a slideshow. Enjoy, and more will be posted tomorrow! As for the missing cards, just check out our Galactic's Conquest and Intense Fight in the Destroyed Sky pages.

I'm really sorry for the lateness of the scans and the lack of updates this week. It was mainly due to being heavily, heavily bombarded at school with midterm week (school comes first!), using a broken laptop without a working mouse (which makes it nearly impossible to use the already-broken news system), and the fact that our usual retail sources apparently received the cards later than usual or not at all. Luckily, some other people sent-in scans without me even having to ask. If you find any cards early at your stores or go to a prerelease tomorrow, please send us your scans as well!

However, I am still not finished with school right now (I'm in the middle of class) and I also have a special film meeting to go to after my classes. So, by the time I get to my dorm it will probably be between 9:00 and 10:00 PM (California time). Downloading and editing the scans could take a couple of hours, so you can either stay up late to see them or wake up early before prereleases to see them. Either way, sorry for this crazy week. Even if you were disappointed in the late-early scans (XD), it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what Platinum is comprised of.

Gyarados G from Platinum has been revealed! Click the thumbnail below for a larger image. It is card #30/127 in the set and is a Rare. This will be an excellent card to pull at the prereleases due to the amount of damage it can deal, especially since it's just a Basic!

There is a good chance we will have early scans of Platinum tonight, with the chance increasing dramatically each day. It's all about the skill of the hunt! Be sure to check back every day!

While it was announced the other day that Shaymin would be given out at Toys R Us, we have now learned that Regigigas will be too. Thanks to Ultimatedra, we have obtained two posters from Toys R Us providing us with new information on the downloads; click the thumbnails below for larger images.

The Regigigas giveaway will occur from March 8th to March 21st. In comparison, the Shaymin downloads will take place a month earlier starting on February 8th and ending February 14th. Thus, Shaymin will be available first for less than a week, while Regigigas will be downloadable a month later for less than two weeks.

Shaymin's moveset is Seed Flare, Aromatherapy, Substitute, and Energy Ball. Surprisingly, it uses all four moves in Giratina and the Sky Warrior. It will also be holding a Micle Berry (raises accuracy in a pinch). Regigigas will know the moves Iron Head, Rock Slide, Icy Wind, and Crush Grip, while holding a Custap Berry (makes first move in a pinch). It will be given to you at Level 100, though Shaymin's level is not yet known at this time. Both Pokemon will be inside Cherish Balls.

Additionally, the Regigigas you receive from Toys R Us will allow you to access special caves in Pokemon Platinum that contain Regirock, Regice, and Registeel. You just need to have the event Regigigas in your party. When Platinum is released, Pokemon.com will provide instructions on where to find and capture the three legendaries.

As a side note, the $5.00 DS game coupon you will receive at the Shaymin event can only be used from February 8th to 14th. It therefore cannot be used to buy Pokemon Platinum.

Dialga G from Platinum (#7)

Dialga G from the upcoming Platinum set has been revealed! It is card #7/127 and will be holographic when you open it out of a booster pack. Like its Galactic friend Honchkrow G, Dialga has a gray and gold border - the apparent trademark of Galactic Pokemon in this set. Click the thumbnail to the right for a larger image.

Next week, possibly even this weekend, we will have pre-prerelease scans of Platinum. Be sure to check back here if you want an early peek at the cards! This is definitely a set you do not want to miss out on... it is the start of a new block and is sure to bring radical change to the metagame.

To find a Platinum prerelease near you, check out this page. If you are new to prereleases or have no idea what I am talking about when I say "prerelease tournaments," read this informative page to find out what you have been missing out on! Prereleases are "for fun" tournaments where you can play with the latest set before it has been released; it's the perfect tournament to make friends and get your feet wet!

Shaymin will be given away at Toys R Us stores from February 8th to 14th, according to the store's Facebook page. It will be available for wireless download through the store's DS Download Stations to players of Diamond and Pearl. Toys R Us will also give each player a Pokemon poster and $5.00-off coupon for one DS game (to show their gratitude).

A Platinum blister pack is set to be released on February 11th when the set is released in stores. It will feature one of two promos, two Platinum booster packs, and one Diamond and Pearl series pack. The product image below shows Gliscor as one of the promos, which originates from the DP5: Temple of Anger / Cry from the Mysterious Japanese blister pack, so the other promo will most likely be Porygon-Z, which was released in the DP4: Moon Hunting / Dawn Dashing blister pack. Click the thumbnail below for a larger image of the product.

Platinum Blister Pack featuring Gliscor
Gliscor promo

Gliscor LV.47 - Fighting - HP90
Stage 1 Pokemon - Evolves from Gligar

As long as Gliscor is your Active Pokemon, your opponent can't remove any Special Conditions by evolving or devolving his or her Pokemon. (This also includes Leveling-Up a Pokemon.)

[C] Cutting Turn: Flip a coin. If heads, put damage counters on the Defending Pokemon until it is 10 HP away from being Knocked Out. If you do, shuffle Gliscor and all cards attached to it into your deck.

Porygon-Z promo

As often as you like during your turn (before your attack), you may move a Technical Machine card attached to 1 of your Pokemon to another one of your Pokemon. This power can't be used if Porygon-Z is affected by a Special Condition.

[.] Running: Search your deck for a Pokemon LV.X card that Levels Up from 1 of your Pokemon and put it onto that Pokemon (this counts as Leveling-Up that Pokemon). Shuffle your deck afterward.
[C][C] Overclock: 40+ damage. Does 40 damage plus 20 more damage for each Technical Machine card attached to Porygon-Z.
