New EX Emerald Card
[PS-Games] is continuing their weekly posting of EX Emerald scans. Today, they have put up a Groudon card (click the thumbnail on the right for a larger picture), which was in the Japanese Deoxys vs. Rayquaza Collector's Tin. This most likely means that EX Emerald will contain all of the tin's Pokemon, although it is not really a huge number. (I believe the tin only has 18 Pokemon cards) Thus, it is likely that our EX Emerald will also contain cards from Japanese promos (such as the Speed Deoxys posted earlier), and possibly cards from Quick Construction Pack, since I can't see Nintendo making our EX Emerald into a set from any other Japanese cards. There is also the possibility that some cards from Golden Sky, Silvery Sea will be thrown into the set early, since QCP and the tin together aren't nearly enough to make 104 cards out of the set. (and that's not including any secret cards) Only time will tell on how Nintendo plans on making this into a regular-sized set, and you can be sure we will have all the latest info!

Possible Milotic and Manectric Theme Deck Cards
I just wanted to throw this out to everyone since I am bored at the moment. As we all know, EX Emerald will come with two theme decks, each centered around Milotic and Manectric. Now that we know that the Japanese Deoxys vs. Rayquaza Collector's Tin will be involved with EX Emerald, I guess it's not too farfetch'd to say that the Milotic and Manectric in the tin could be the ones put into our theme decks. You can see them to the right in Japanese. (click for a larger picture)

I hope you all had a great Easter if you celebrated it!

EX Emerald Release Date Correction
Okay, on the previous update, I made a mistake on the EX Emerald release date. It will be released on the 9th, not the 16th. Therefore, the set WILL be legal for Regionals. Sorry if I caused you any massive panic attacks. :) If Milotic ex, the card that does not allow your opponent to play any Technical Machine cards, is released in EX Emerald, Rock-Lock (Dark T-Tar/Dark Amphy) probably will have a hard time at Regionals if people decide to put Milotic ex into their decks. So, for all of you people who were hoping that Rock-Lock would decrease in strength, you are in luck. :)

The Pojo Conclusion
Well, with the article I put up the other day on Pojo stealing my scans, the whole situation has finally ended. People from the PokeGym forums and the forums of Pojo itself posted topics on what Pojo was doing, and they attracted a lot of attention. While the Pojo thread was deleted by the webmaster himself (what a surprise), the PokeGym thread remained opened and the webmaster of Pojo actually replied in it.

In his first post, he basically stated that the people who work for his site have no problem taking images from other sites, and he really did not sound like he cared about the situation or would do anything about it. He tried to justify his actions, trying to say that what his site was doing was okay and that there was no problem with it. While I posted against him, he did not seem to care about what I had to say. However, many of the people from the PokeGym basically ganged up on the Pojo webmaster and told him he should not be doing what he is doing. I think the pressure of the PokeGym members got to him.

Without the help of the people of the PokeGym, I really do not think anything would have been acomplished and that Pojo would continue to steal my scans. However, because of the members of the 'Gym, Pojo posted that he would no longer steal my scans. (He basically tried to brush it off as no big deal, since negative attention to his site would not be a good thing) Hopefully, this will be the LAST time Pojo ever steals any other website's material, since this is actually the second time Pojo has done this. (the first time involved them stealing's episode guides) I really hope they learn their lesson and do not do anything like this in the future to anyone.

With this whole situation, I do not think Pojo will do the right thing and take down the scans he stole or post an apology on his site since he does not want the general public to know that his site stole. However, I guess I am mostly satisfied that he is going to stop, and am just glad that this is all over.

So, in closing, props go to the members of the PokeGym (and some from the Pojo forums), who were able to pressure Pojo into stopping what he was doing. Thanks you guys!

American EX Emerald News and Pics!
There were some major breakthroughs today on the American EX Emerald set, thanks to [PS-Games]. Here are some easy-to-read facts on the set:

1. Release Date: May 9th, 2005
2. HOLOGRAPHIC BASIC energy cards are available in this set. (yay!)
3. There will be more than 100 cards in the set, including Speed Deoxys, Kyogre, Groudon, and Rayquaza.
4. The two theme decks for the set will be based around Milotic (Water/Grass deck) and Manectric (Lightning/Fire deck).

The website also revealed a scan of a Speed Deoxys card, the booster pack designs, the theme decks, and the set image logo, which you can see by clicking the links below. I was able to make out on the Manectric theme deck image that it would be named "Wildfire," but I have no idea what the Milotic theme deck's name is. It looks like Hydro-something, but I can't make it all out. The second word will probably have something to do with Grass.

[Speed Deoxys Card]
[EX Emerald Booster Packs]
[Milotic Theme Deck]
[Manectric Theme Deck]
[EX Emerald Card Logo]

Japanese Golden Sky, Silvery Sea News!
We have some more exclusive Golden Sky, Silvery Sea info today thanks to Vincent! Also, the official Pokemon TCG Japanese website has put up a clearer picture of Espeon ex, Tyranitar ex, and the booster pack of the set, which you can see to the right. Now on with the info!

1. There will be a new Pokemon Tool called "Rage Crystal."
2. There will be a Ho-oh ex and Lugia ex in this set. (Don't forget how we posted earlier that there would also be a Shining Ho-oh and a Shining Lugia)
3. Ho-oh ex will have 110 HP. Lugia ex will probably have the same amount as well, though this was not confirmed by Vincent.
4. Espeon ex has 110 HP, not 170.
5. Espeon ex's second attack reads as "Does 60 damage plus 30 more times the number of your opponent's trainer cards in play."
6. Espeon ex has no retreat cost, while Tyranitar ex has a Psychic resistance.

Also, incase there is still some confusion on to whether EX Emerald is "Golden Sky, Silvery Sea," I pretty much, as well as others, think that the two sets are not the same. EX Emerald will be our next EX set after EX Deoxys, and will probably include cards from the Japanese Emerald Tin and Quick Construction Pack cards, as well as various other Japanese promo cards. "Golden Sky, Silvery Sea" will also probably come to America as the set after EX Emerald, which should be some time in the late summer. However, I do think that there will probably be some cards thrown into our EX Emerald that will be from the Japanese "Golden Sky, Silvery Sea set," which is what Nintendo has done with various sets in the past, such as with EX Sandstorm where Dunsparce was put in one set early and we got it before Japan.

We will continue to bring you the latest news on EX Emerald and Golden Sky, Silvery Sea, so be sure to keep checking back here! - THIEVES
Although I hate to do this since I feel it is highly degrading, I feel that I have no other options left and have exhausted all of my resources. For the past few weeks, has been stealing my scans and posting them up in their Card of the Days. While this wouldn't had been such a big problem had they contacted me asking for permission to use them initially, what really got me angry was that they covered up my watermark with their own logo, thinking that no one would notice that they had stolen the scans from my website. (when you work on editing the scans for like 5 minutes each, you can tell if they are yours right away) All of the scans they have taken from my site have smudges that are the same, the borders are cut the same, the holos marks are the same, and you can just generally tell from where they put their logo that it is meant to cover my own watermark.

After sending them SEVERAL emails to SEVERAL of their staff members, as well as contacting a couple of people who know them over the past few weeks, I still have not received any response from them. Now, I believe they got wind of my message yesterday, which was when they posted their Shining Latias COTD. Instead of acting like reasonable human beings and coming forth to admit that what they did was wrong, they instead decided that they would pull a fast one.

With all of the scans they have stolen, they have always put their logo over my watermark, which practically gives away what they are doing. However, for Shining Latias, they put the logo in the middle of the card instead of where my watermark should be. Then, where my logo should be, they edited the background of the picture to blend in with the rest, trying to make it look like it did not come from my website. You can even see how they copied and pasted a section of the card over the part where my logo should be, which is why some of the holo marks are exactly the same next to each other. If you even look at the holo backgrounds of their cards, such as Altaria and Latias, you can see that they are exactly the same as mine. No two holos are EVER the same.

NEWS STORY EDIT: [A Grumpig Comparison]
(I put the Grumpig comparison up now to show how they stole even more)

[Both Altaria Cards]
[Both Shining Latias Cards]
[Both Boost Energy Cards]

(I have reduced my images to the size of theirs to show how they are the same. I have also circled the holo circles to show how they are the same as well. These are only three of about twenty scans they stole, so far.)

So, in closing, I feel that this was the only way to get Pojo's attention. While I do believe that it is a little low to put up a message like this, what they did was uncalled for, and I feel that by embarrassing them publicly, they will remove my images AND apologize for what they have done on their website. There is absolutely no doubt that they knew that what they were doing was stealing, and that they then later tried to hide it by editing my cards to look as if they did not come from here. It disappoints me that a website who has been up since 1998 would do something as low as this, know about it, try to cover it up, then continue going on with it thinking that they would not ever be caught. Totally sickening, and in my mind, their reputation has been tarnished to me.

Three New Pokemon!
The official Pokemon 2005 movie website has been updated with three new Diamond and Pearl Pokemon silhouettes. As you may remember from a previous news story, we stated that the three new Pokemon, which at the time only had their names revealed to us, could be related to Sneasel, Sudowoodo, or could just be a new Pokemon. Well, from looking at the silhouettes of the new Pokemon below, I would say that the middle Pokemon is definitely a baby Sudowoodo. It has those three orbs that Sudowoodo has, and it just generally looks like it could be a baby form of it. I think that the right Pokemon could be a baby Sneasel, Mawile, or even a Meditite. The left one is probably just a new one, since it doesn't appear to be related to anything previously known. Those are just my opinions, though. If you have any of your own, be sure to post them in the news commenting system. :)

New 8th Movie Info
The Pokemon 2005 movie site also confirmed today that the Regis would be in the 8th movie, as well as Mew, Lucario, and the three new Pokemon. Not like we did not already know most of that from the CoroCoro pages, but at least now it is official. The website also revealed that the height of Lucario is 4 feet, and it weighs 119 pounds, as well as a new image of it, as seen to the right. Also, apparently the role of the Regis in the movie will be to guard the Tree of Origin, where they stop Ash and crew from getting to the tree. At this time, the roles of Lucario and Mew are still unknown, as well as the full roles of the Regis and the three new Pokemon. When more info is revealed to us on the 8th movie, we will get it to you as soon as possible!

Golden Sky, Silvery Sea Scans!
Vincent0906 has kindly scanned for us some cards from the Golden Sky, Silvery Sea set, which he opened from the Japanese pre-construction decks. An interesting note on the decks is that while all three should come in 1st edition, the Feraligatr deck has undergone a printing error and there are no 1st editions of it available in the Japanese version. I thought that was a pretty interesting tid-bit of info, since I have never heard anything like this before happening with the Japanese versions of cards. Also, Vincent has informed me that in this set, there will be a Scizor ex that can evolve from Scyther (ex), which means it can evolve from either Scyther or Scyther ex. Seems pretty cool!

Anyways, you can view the scans Vincent scanned by clicking the links below. An auction on E-bay has also put up two scans of Espeon ex and Tyranitar ex, which you can view by clicking their names below.

[Chinchou, Lanturn, Snubull, Granbull, Unown (R), Totodile, Croconaw, Feraligatr ex]

[Natu, Xatu, HootHoot, Noctowl, Unown (X), Chikorita, Bayleef, Meganium ex]

[Wooper, Quagsire, Clefairy, Clefable, Unown (T), Cyndaquil, Quilava, Typhlosion ex]

[Espeon ex and Tyranitar ex]
Source: [Auction]

[Prof. Elm's Training Method, An Improved Balloon Berry, and other trainers]

That's it for today! Keep checking back for the latest info on Golden Sky, Silvery Sea, as we continue to be your #1 source for the set!

Sorry for not updating for the past few days. I couldn't log in to the news program, but I found the problem and it has now been fixed.

Golden Sky, Silvery Sea Booster Pack
An auction on E-Bay has put up for a Golden Sky, Silvery Sea Japanese booster pack, as seen to the right. (click for a larger picture) The artwork looks pretty cool, and hopefully, the booster pack is a reflection of what the artwork in the set will look like. To see the auction, you can [click here].

More Golden Sky, Silvery Sea Scans
New scans have been revealed on the Japanese Pokemon TCG website. They include Granbull, Quagsire, a new trainer card, and full versions of the Unown we posted earlier. You can see them below.

Lucario/Rukario's Official Image Revealed, 8th Movie Info
The official Pokemon 2005 movie website has been updated to include Lucario's true image, a trailer for the new movie, and some other goodies. To visit the website, you can [click here]. To see the trailer, which is available in a low-quality and high-quality version, you can [click here]. To see Lucario's full-body image, you can [click here].

Here is a synopsis of the movie:
"Centuries ago, a huge battle took place between the Reds and the Greens. It was stopped by The Wave Guiding Hero, who used the power of the Tree of Origin to stop it. Ash and friends have arrived in Rota Town, where celebrations for an ancient festival, held in the Oldoran castle, are taking place. Ash and Pikachu enter a battle to select this year's hero, and after a long and violent battle, Ash wins and become the year's hero. Suddenly, Mew appears (first as a Ho-oh), and snatches Pikachu, then disappears. Lucario, who has been sealed away for hundreds of years, then appears in front of Ash. What does Lucario want? Where does Mew take Pikachu and how is Lucario involved?

I find it strange how the Regi's are nowhere to be found on the entire website. I hope they will still be in the movie. Only time will tell as to what their roll will be in the movie, if they even have one.

That's it for today! Keep checking back for the latest info on Golden Sky, Silvery Sea, and EX Emerald!

Lucario's Image Revealed!
All this month, we have been telling you about the newest Pokemon which will be featured in the 8th Pokemon movie, Lucario. Yesterday in Japan, a special aired on television that showed Lucario's true image instead of a shadow, and Meowth346 from Pokemon Forever has just posted up an image of it based off the image shown on television.

Wow, we were down for over five days. With all the EX Deoxys scans we have, our bandwidth was totally used up. I can't imagine how much bandwidth we will use up for when we get the EX Emerald scans, since the bandwidth usage keeps increasing each month by drastic amounts. Well, now we are back up, so time for the news and updates!

Golden Sky, Silvery Sea / EX Emerald Scans
Thanks to the official Pokemon Japanese site, we now have full-view scans of Feraligatr ex, Meganium ex, Typhlosion ex, three Unown cards, a Mary card, and all of the pre-evolution starter Pokemon! To see the scans, click the links below.

[Totodile, Croconaw, Feraligatr ex]
[Cyndaquil, Quilava, Typhlosion ex]
[Chikorita, Bayleef, Meganium ex]
[Three Starter Evolution ex's, Mary Trainer Card]

"Mew and the Wave-Guiding Hero - Lucario" Poster
We now have more information on the 8th Pokemon movie involving Mew, Lucario, and the three Regi's. The poster to the right (click for a larger picture) has been floating around the internet since yesterday, and it reveals Ash and crew in medieval clothing. What could this mean? Well, for one thing, it could mean that Ash and crew are going to be traveling into the past to help Mew with something. These are my predictions of the movie:

Thought #1: They help Mew seal away the Regis and have to go back in time to stop the Regis from being unlocked in the future. Or something.

Thought #2: Since they have been showing a lot of legendary Pokemon lately, such as in the most recent Japanese episode intro, maybe the tree involved with the movie is Celebi's and they ask Celebi to take them back in time. (probably not, but just a thought)

Thought #3: Could Ash be the Wave-Guiding Hero since he is holding the staff?

Observation #1: Are those new Pokemon under Pikachu's ball at the end of his hat? Too small to tell, but we may be able to identify them in the future if they are Diamond and Pearl Pokemon.

Observation #2: Look at the mountain behind Mew. It has the same formation as the one behind the Regi's in the CoroCoro magazine page. It even has the two rocks sticking out at the top that the other rock formation had. No doubt that it is the same formation as the one behind the Regi's in the other CoroCoro magazine page.

Yeah, those are just my thoughts and observations. Feel free to post your own in the news commenting system.

EX Deoxys Scans
Thanks to GL Mo and PokeMontoya, we have nearly completed our EX Deoxys scans with only three more to go! To view the scans, you can [click here]. If you cannot see the updated card list, be sure to clear out your internet cache.

EX Deoxys Theme Deck List
We now have both theme deck lists for EX Deoxys. To see them, you can visit our theme deck page by [clicking here]. As with the Deoxys scans, you may have to clear out your internet cache to see the updated page since your history files may have an older version of the page stored.

Also, I have taken out the images in the left and right menus and replaced them with text. This will help lower the bandwidth every month and will help the site load much faster. Looks weird without all those images, doesn't it? :)

Just running in real quick. I have been extremely busy with school this week, sorry for the lack of updates. I promise we will have a larger update on the weekend, including the other Deoxys Theme Deck list and possibly the rest of the scans for the set (still missing Sharpedo ex and Manectric ex). Also, I would like to announce that I have started working on the scans again. So far, I have done exactly half of EX Ruby and Sapphire and EX Sandstorm. My goal this week is to get at least one of them up. Soon, hopefully, we will have all the set scans up.

Vincent has translated two more Golden Sky, Silvery Sea cards. What two cards has he translated? Noctowl and Grandbull! (yet more G/S Pokemon!)

Noctowl - 80 HP (C)
Look at the top 7 cards of your deck, and choose 1 of them and put it into your hand. Put the remaining cards on top of your deck in any order you like. (Vincent is not sure whether this card works while Noctowl is Active or if it can be on the Bench)

(CC) Wing Attack - 30

Weakness: Lightning
Resistance: Fighting
Retreat: (C)


Granbull - 80 HP (C)
Look at the bottom 4 cards of your deck. Choose two and put them into your hand, and then reorder the remaining 2 cards and put it back to the bottom of your deck. (Vincent is not sure whether this card works while Granbull is Active or if it can be on the Bench)

(CC) Unown Attack Name - 20
You may discard any Stadium in play.

Weakness: Fighting
Resistance: Psychic
Retreat: (CC)

That's all for now! Check back this weekend for more updates!

Friday, February 18th, 2005 @ 7 PM PST -  By: Water Pokémon Master
As we have been reporting for the past few weeks, Japan’s next set would be called “Golden Sky, Silvery Sea,” aka “EX Gold and Silver.” As of now, we have confirmed from several sources that America’s next set will be EX Emerald, which means for sure now that “Golden Sky, Silvery Sea” will be our EX Emerald. The pre-release dates for EX Emerald in America will be April 30th, May 1st, May 7th, and May 8th. The official release date for the set will be on May 9th.

Now it’s time for some images! Thanks to the official Japanese Pokemon TCG website, we now have a picture of Feraligatr ex, Typhlosion ex, and Meganium ex – the ones we were talking about from a while ago. You can see those scans to the right. The Japanese theme decks of those Pokemon can be seen by [clicking here].

Thanks to vincent0906, we also have translations of the G/S starter-ex's:

Meganium ex - HP 150 (G)
[Poke-Power] Grow Healing:
Once during your turn, when you attach a (G) energy from your hand to one your Pokemon in play, remove one damage counter from that Pokemon. This Power cannot be used if Meganium ex is affected by Special Conditions.

(CCC) Razor Leaf - (50)
(GGCCC) Power Poison - (90)
You may discard 1 Energy card from Meganium ex. If you do, the Defending Pokemon is now Poisoned.

Weakness: Grass/Fire
Resistance: (W)
Retreat: (CC)


Typhlosion ex - HP 150 (R)
[Poke-Power] Burst Up:
Once during your turn, when you play Typhlosion ex from your hand to evolve 1 of your Pokemon, for each of your opponent's Bench Pokemon, search your deck for 1 (R) energy card and attach them to one of your (R) Pokemon.

[RRCC] Meramera - (80)
You may discard 1 energy from Typhlosion ex. If you do, discard 1 energy attached to the Defending Pokemon.

Weakness: Water/Fighting
Resistance: None
Retreat: (C)


Feraligatr ex – HP 150 (W)

[Poke-Body] Scary Tooth:
If Feraligatr ex is your Active Pokemon, all Poke-Powers and Poke-bodies (both yours and your opponent’s) stop working (except those from Pokemon-ex).

(WC) Tsunami - (30)
Does 10 damage to all of your opponent's Bench Pokemon.
(WCCC) Strong Bite - (70+)
Does 10 more damage for each damage counter on the Defending Pokemon.

Weakness: Lightning
Resistance: None
Retreat: (CCC)


Also, as we said before, there will be 28 Unown in this set. Vincent says that the below example will be what the typical Unown looks like. Unlike in Neo Discovery, all of the Unown in this set will have the same Poke-Power, “Shuffle,” but will all have different Hidden Power effects. Here is an example of an Unown, as well as several different Hidden Power attacks:

Unown (Letter) – HP 60
[Poke-Power] Shuffle:
Search your deck for another Unown card and replace it with this Pokemon. Shuffle the first one back into your deck. (The effects, damage counters, special conditions, and any other effects on the first Unown still remain on the new Pokemon) You can only use one Shuffle Poke-Power each turn.

Example of Unown Hidden Powers:

#1: (CC) Hidden Power
Does 20 damage to all of your opponent's Pokemon.
#2: (CC) Hidden Power
Flip a coin. If heads, return the Defending Pokemon and all cards attached to it to your opponent's hand. This attack cannot be used if your opponent has only one Pokemon in play.
#3: (PC) Hidden Power – (20x)
Flip coin until you get tails. This attack does 20 damage times the number of heads.

Weakness: Psychic
Resistance: None
Retreat: (C)


That’s all we have for today in terms of EX Emerald. Be sure to check back here soon for more information on the set!

New Pokemon, 8th Movie News
Today, a new Diamond and Pearl Pokemon was revealed in the latest issue of the Japanese magazine, CoroCoro. From translating the scan, its Japanese name translates to “Lucario.” But that's not all CoroCoro revealed. The two pages dedicated to Pokemon also gave some new info on the 8th Pokemon movie, “Mew and the Wave Guiding Hero.” We now know that the Mew movie will not only involve Mew, but all three Regis as well as Lucario, and that they will all be involved in the plot of the movie. To see the silhouette of the new Pokemon, Lucario, as well as the Regis that were in the magazine pages of CoroCoro, click the thumbnail to the right. Thanks to [] and [Cynthia] for the scan!

Now, let’s talk about the newest Pokemon. It’s name, when spelled backwards, resembles the word “oracle.” If we look on the Pokemon 2005 website and go to the main page, which you can go to by clicking [here], Mew is wrapping its tail around an oracle. Could this mean something? Is Lucario Mew's friend and protector, or could it be the other way around? Only time will tell.

From looking at the image of Lucario, you will probably think “It looks like Mewtwo!” “It looks like the Egyptian god, Anubus!” “It looks like a combination of Mewtwo with other Pokemon!” Well, you aren’t the only one who has been thinking that today. Many theories have been floating around to why this Pokemon looks the way it does, and I believe my friend Animelee came up with the best and most reasonable theory. He thought that maybe this Pokemon has the ability to take on traits from two Pokemon, which is very possible seeing as how we see Mew and Blaziken next to Lucario on the CoroCoro page, not to mention it sort of looks like a fusion between a Blaziken and Mewtwo. Seems like this theory isn't too farfetch'd. ;) Once again, only time will tell until the mystery behind Lucario is revealed.

Anyways, for now, CoroCoro has only revealed that this Pokemon has a relationship with Mew and that its real image will be in the next issue of CoroCoro (the next issue of CoroCoro comes out next Tuesday). We will bring you more news concerning Lucario, Munchlax, and any other Diamond/Pearl Pokemon that come out within the next few months, so be sure to keep checking back here!

I have decided to edit this into this news story instead of waiting until tomorrow. Meowth346 has just posted three new Pokemon names at his website, [Pokemon Forever]. The Pokemon names are Usohachi, Manene, and Manyula. One of them has been confirmed to be related to Sudowoodo, while the last two are speculated to be two new Pokemon that are related to each other, such as Plusle and Minun, or one Pokemon that evolves from/to the other. Feel free to discuss all four new Pokemon in the commenting system. :)

EX Emerald
As we reported earlier, the next EX set to come out in Japan would be named “Golden Sky, Silvery Sea,” aka the dubbed name of “EX Gold and Silver.” Well, we now believe that the English set name of the set will be EX Emerald, seeing as how the set and Gameboy game, Pokemon Emerald, will be coming out in the same month and the logo to the right looks pretty real (as of now, it has not been confirmed to be real, although it most likely is). Pokemon Emerald also has a ton of Gold and Silver generation Pokemon in it, which still supports the idea of EX Emerald being our “Golden Sky, Silvery Sea” set. When more info comes out on Golden Sky, Silvery Sea / EX Emerald, we will be sure to tell you!
