Super Smash Brothers is going to be released in Japan on the Wii's Virtual Console sometime this January. It is the very first game of the Super Smash Brothers series, the latest incarnation being Super Smash Brothers Brawl. The game will cost 1,200 Wii points ($12).

There is no word yet on if or when it will be released in America. The Japanese re-release comes almost 10 years after its original Nintendo 64 release of January 21st, 1999, so perhaps America will get the game in April (since it was released here April 26th, 1999).

Redshark has been updated to fix errors on a Magneton and Magnezone card that many people were reporting (guess they're popular cards). You can download the new installer by right clicking and saving this link.

Lack of updates on PokeBeach = lack of news in the Pokemon world.

Toho has sent us real scans of Bonds to the End of Time cards, which have been added to the set's page. Bangiras has also gone through all of the translations and fixed some errors. Enjoy!

I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas yesterday and that you all spent quality time with your families! Family is the most important thing you can ever have... no matter what.

We have received word on two Platinum tid-bits: there are six Pokemon LV.X in the set, including Giratina and Shaymin, as well as three Shiny Pokemon, which are again (ugly, scratchable, not-as-good-as-the-Japanese-special-holos) reverse holo cards.

The three Shiny Pokemon are undoubtedly Vulpix, Swablu, and Lotad from Galactic's Conquest. The six Level X's will probably be the Shaymin from Intense Fight in the Destroyed Sky and the Shaymin (Sky Forme), Giratina (Origin Forme), Dialga G, Palkia G, and Drapion LV.X's from Galactic's Conquest.

As with previous sets, two binders featuring artwork from the set will be released. The first pictured below is a 4-pocket, 14-page binder and the second picture is a 9-pocket, 10-page binder. One of the Shaymin shown on the binders will probably be the artwork for the fourth booster pack of the set.

Platinum's two theme decks will be named Rebellion and Flourish. Rebellion will feature Giratina while Flourish will focus on Shaymin. To read more about Platinum, read this news story. You can also check out our spoilers and scans for Intense Fight in the Destroyed Sky (11th movie-related cards in the set, like Shaymin LV.X and Giratina) and Galactic's Conquest (the entire set) to see what Platinum will contain when it comes to America.

Pokemon.com has revealed the names of Giratina's two Formes for the U.S. release of Pokemon Platinum. The Giratina we know from Diamond and Pearl will be called Giratina "Altered Forme" (known as "Another Forme" in Japanese), while the newly designed Giratina is named Giratina Origin Forme (as in the Japanese version of Platinum). The Giratina we have known for a few years is called "Another Forme" because the new Giratina is considered Giratina's true Forme.

Mai_Kingdra, the creator of Redshark, is now looking for people who wish to test the prototype Mac OS X version of Redshark! If you would like to test it, please send an e-mail to redsharksupport at gmail.com and briefly state why you would be a good candidate.

A screenshot of the prototype version can be seen below. Click the thumbnail for a larger image. If all works well, the Mac version should roll out to PokeBeach in early 2009. When that happens, Mac users will be able to practice the Pokemon TCG for the first time on the computer, plus against fellow Windows players through the internet!

The Speed Gamers are an organization that raises money for various noble causes. This year, they are attempting to capture all Pokemon except for Shaymin and Arceus in order to raise money for ACT Today (Autism Care and Treatment). The gamers will be playing Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, FireRed, LeafGreen, Diamond, Pearl, XD: Gale of Darkness, Colosseum, Ranger: Shadows of Almia, and Pokemon Ranch to obtain all the Pokemon. If you would like to donate to ACT Today, you can do so through the Speed Gamers' main website.

You can watch a live feed of the "Pokemon-catchathon" below!

The official Pokemon Card website updated early this morning with all Bonds to the End of Time card images, which was rather surprising considering no official Pokemon TCG website has ever purposefully revealed entire sets before their release dates (maybe they're learning from PokeBeach?!).

We now have a complete page for Bonds to the End of Time, which contains all of the set's translations, card images, and set information. A huge, huge thanks go to Bangiras for translating all of the cards so quickly and Jason for helping to HTMLize the translations while I was suffering from tooth and headache pain. :p

Here are quick links for different sections on the set page: General Info | Key Cards | Set Themes | Main Set Translations | Gallade Theme Deck Translations | Infernape Theme Deck Translations | Set Blister Pack Promos | Set Card Images | Gallade Deck Images | Infernape Deck Images

The Level X's of the set and theme decks are previewed below, as are the reprinted Pikachu cards. To see the card images for the rest of the set and its theme decks, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the set page.
