Field WorkerI'm in the heart of finals week, and I hate it! :p Why do teachers give you so much homework when it is FINALS WEEK?! How are we supposed to study when we have labs and tests and outlines and random junk to do? I just don't get some teachers. If they want their students to do well on the finals, then they shouldn't be packing on the work the days right before the finals. Gosh I can't wait until Thursday @ 11:55 when they are finally all over. /end rant

Fourth EX Legend Maker Image - Anyways, [Pokemon.no], the official Pokemon website for Norway, has posted its fourth EX Legend Maker image - Fieldworker. It is, yet again, another trainer that involves the drawing of three cards, similar to Bill's Maintenance, TV Reporter, Mary's Request, etc., which seems to be the trend today with drawing Supporters. Click the thumbnail for a larger image, as usual. To read the Japanese set version of EX Legend Maker's spoilers, Eidolon Forest, you can [click here].

And with that I am off to studying for AP US y Espanol.

The stress of finals has finally gotten to me. Finals are in one week, and today was the most hectic day on the planet. So, I probably will not be updating until MAYBE one time during the weekend, and then after that on Thursday when finals are all done and over with. I would rip out my hair right now, but I just got a haircut, so it's kind of hard to do so. :p

React EnergyThird EX Legend Maker Image - Pokemon.no, which is down right now, posted its third EX Legend Maker image thus far, being React Energy (click for larger pic). At first look, you are probably thinking, "What's so special about this card? It only provides [C]!" Well, don't be fooled by the card itself. This energy actually combos well with many Pokemon in EX Legend Maker (Eidolon Forest), such as Gorebyss (see last update), Arcanine ex, Flygon ex, etc. With React Energy, some Pokemon are able to use their attacks better, and other Pokemon are able to do something special when the card is attached to them. If you want to look through the Eidolon Forest spoilers, which is the Japanese set version of EX Legend Maker, [click here] and do a search for "React." You will be able to see what Pokemon benefit from the card, and how React Energy works with certain Pokemon.

Top 20 Pokemon - [Pokemon.com] has created a survey that allows fans to vote for their top 20 favorite Pokemon. The purpose of the survey is to determine which Pokemon people want available at download stations, which is where Nintendo can transfer multiple Pokemon to Gameboy Advance cartridges such as FireRed or Emerald. However, there is a catch. You can't vote for a few select legendaries, which Pokemon.com hints will be available at another point in time (Deoxys, Celebi, etc). The weird thing is that when I took the survey a few days ago when it was first up, it let me vote for legendaries, and it sent my ballot off with me having selected Pokemon such as Celebi, which is not available for catching on any of the Advanced Generation games. I don't know if it was an error on their part or a bug in the system, but it sure let me vote for those rare legendary Pokemon. Guess they fixed it, since some of the legendaries are blanked out now. Anyways, be sure to vote for you top 20 favorite Pokemon. Maybe if we all vote for Abra, Kadabra, and Alakazam, Nintendo will realize that they have forgotten the Psychic line on its other Pokemon front - the trading card game. ;)

EDIT: Added EX Legend Maker Gorebyss image. Read the news story below.

Lots of news today. There has got to be an easier way to organize all of this. Oh yeah, incase I have not yet shoved this down your throats enough, [sign up] and post on our new forums! Also, if you missed yesterday's news, which included Holon Phantom scans, scroll down and take a look!

Rayquaza Delta SpeciesAll Holon Phantom Translations - Bangiras has kindly translated for us ALL of the cards out of the Holon Phantom expansion. She is the one who translated Eidolon Forest for us as well, and her translations are top-notch! The Holon Phantom is turning out to be an excellent set, and will definitely change the format around. With this releasing of the set, it would appear as if we now know what will be the format for Worlds 2006. Holon Phantom will most likely be the last set of this season to be released in May, followed by Miracle Crystal in August (after Worlds, of course). So, the sets for Worlds will most likely be EX Hidden Legends through Holon Phantom. We can all start practicing now! Anyways, to read all of the spoilers for the set, you can [click here], or in the future, select "Holon Phantom Spoilers" under "Japanese TCG Sets" in the left menu. If you came here earlier today and viewed Vincent's spoilers of some of the evolved Pokemon from the set, you may have to clear out your cache to view these spoilers.

GorebyssGorebyss Image from Legend Maker - [Pokemon.no], the official Pokemon Norwegian site, has posted another picture of a card from EX Legend Maker - this time being Gorebyss! You can see a larger image of the card by clicking its thumbnail on the left. Also, regarding the errors on that Banette ex the other day - Mike Liesik, head of POP, stated that he has seen a real printout of the card and it does not have the same errors on it as the Banette ex image. Thus, the image from Pokemon.no was just an earlier version of the card that had not been corrected yet. "OMG THE CARD'S NOT HOLO!!!" This card is not supposed to be a holo, but I will explain why cards like Banette ex are not holo to clear up some confusion I have seen. These are the images that PUSA prints out from their computers on to holographic paper. They don't make the background of the Pokemon holo on the computer, and just expect the ink to make it look holographic. They print the images over the holo paper, with the card's parts, such as the attack text, background template, etc. cover the holo, and the rest of the empty space on the card (such as the background behind the Pokemon) be empty, thus allowing the holo to show through. If you have ever peeled a Pokemon card before, you will see that the whole card is actually holo, and that the ink is what covers up many of the parts. Hope this explanation was clear.

New Diamond / Pearl Pokemon to be Revealed - CoroCoro revealed today that in its next month's issue, a new Diamond and Pearl generation Pokemon will be revealed. This will be the first D/P Pokemon revealed since last March (almost a year ago), and the new Pokemon will be featured in the 9th Pokemon movie, Pokemon Ranger and the Prince of the Sea. We luckily have some correspondents who receive CoroCoro earlier than most people, so when the new Pokemon is revealed, we will try to get it up as soon as possible! Hopefully it will be a Water-type. :p

So Those Guys are STILL Saying Pokemon is Dead? - Well let's just smack them so silly that they wet their pants.
Pokemon Emerald

NPD Group: Top Selling Games in 2005
1. Madden NFL 06 (PS2)
2. Pokemon Emerald (GBA)
3. Gran Turismo 4 (PS2)
4. Madden NFL 06 (Xbox)
5. NCAA Footbal 06 (PS2)
6. Star Wars: Battlefront II (PS2)
7. MVP Baseball 2005 (PS2)
8. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (PS2)
9. NBA Live 06 (PS2)
10. LEGO Star Wars (PS2)

Not only was the Anime the #1 rated show on Saturday mornings for Kids' WB, but now Emerald has shown the popularity of the Pokemon games in the United States. Ruby and Sapphire were #1 in 2003, and now it's predecessor, a REMAKE, is #2. Pokemon certainly is thriving. Now all we need are some statistics on the trading card game. :p

Sunday, January 15th, 2006 @ 1 AM PST -  By: Water Pokémon Master

Update #whatever: I have put together a page for all of Vincent's Holon Phantom translations and have edited the translations to be more clear. The page can be accessed by [clicking here], and will be in the left menu under "Japanese TCG Sets" in the future when I have time to edit the Holon Phantom and Miracle Crystal set page (hopefully today).

Vileplume Delta SpeciesExclusive Holon Phantom Scans
We have obtained several exclusive Holon Phantom scans from two Japanese correspondents in Japan who attended the World Hobby Fair, as well as another commercial source. The scans reveal to us that the Pokemon in this set will have even more unusual types than the last set, and give us the general idea that there will be fossil Pokemon in the set - again. As with yesterday's images, these scans confirm information we have had since early December on the set, such as there being a Water/Metal Rayquaza. More scans will be uploaded here as we receive them, so keep coming back during the day to check for any new updates. Vincent will hopefully translate the cards for us later on today.

[Vileplume - Psychic/Metal]
[Gloom - Psychic, Oddish - Water]
[Armaldo - Fightning/Metal]
[Kingdra - Fire/Metal]
[Raichu - Metal]
[Pichu and Pikachu - Lightning/Metal]
[Pidgeot - Lightning/Metal]
[Pidgey and Pidgeotto - Lightning]
[Rayquaza - Water/Metal]
[Cradily, Lilleep, Trainer Card - Dark/Metal]
[Kabutops, Kabuto, Trainer Card - Lightning]
[Omastar - Psychic]
[Omanyte and Trainer - Psychic]
[Magikarp - Metal, Gyarados - Lightning/Metal]
[Stadium Card]

[Group Pic 1 - Trapinch, Mankey, Horsea, Seadra, Psyduck, Exeggcute, Sharpedo, Persian, Anorith, Delta Rainbow Energy, others]
[Group Pic 2 - Aerodactyl, Exeggutor, Carvanha, Castform, Meowth, Chimeco, Holon Trainer, others]
[Group Pic 3 - Bellossom, others]
[Group Pic 4 - Rare Candy with alternate art, others]

Commentary: (1) Wow, only 52 cards. What a small set. As in EX Delta Species / Researching Tower, the cards have that reverse holo effect on them. (2) It would seem as if the Castform are the Holon's Electrode/Magneton of this set. (3) Holon Rainbow Energy? Wonder what it does. It probably provides three Rainbow Energy when a certain condition is met. And those two trainers look interesting. The egg probably is some sort of Mysterious Fossil, and the trainer with the guy in it is probably some Holon Trainer card similar to the Holon Trainers of Delta Species. I will update the Holon Phantom page later with all of the information we have discovered over the past few days. Be sure to post on our forums about the set, as we are your home base for this set, and to check back later today for some translations and possibly more scans! The topic for this set is located [in this thread], where people are already discussing the set. This is the perfect time to join our forums if you haven't already done so!

UPDATE: Vincent has translated many of the evolved Pokemon from the scans above. The translations can be read [in this forum topic]. The Rayquaza will fit awesomely into any Blastoise/Lugia deck, and that Pidgeot would be perfect for any Delta Species-only deck! These Delta Species Pokemon sure are interesting!

UPDATE #2: Just realized something. THEY FORGOT ALAKAZAM!!! GAHH!!!!!

Regirock appears!Mew and the Wave Guiding Hero - OST
We continue our Mew movie marathon with yet another OST. Today's song is titled "Regirock" and plays many times throughout the movie in many different variations, such as when Lucario is first introduced and of course when Regirock appears. To download the song, save the link, or click the link and wait for your browser to prompt you for the download.

EDIT: Translations and commentary on the translations added.

Weeeee, got back from community service an hour or two ago, and it's almost one in the morning, so I am going to make this quick and edit it later today after I wake up.

Holon Phantom Translations
Wow, I overslept. It's 12:30 PM now. Anyways, this news story has been added in, and was not in the original. Vincent has translated for us the card images of the Holon Phantom that are in the article below this one. You can see the translations below, in case you lack a sense of direction and cannot find your way down. :p

Deoxys (Normal) - 70 HP [C]
Delta Species

Poke-Power: Form Change
Once during your turn (before you attack), you may search your deck for another Deoxys and switch it with Deoxys. (Any cards attached to Deoxys, damage counters, Special Conditions, and effects on it are now on the new Pokemon.) If you do, put Deoxys on top of your deck. Shuffle your deck afterwards. You can't use more than one Form Change Poke-Power each turn.

[CC] Crystal Laser - 20: During your next turn, Crystal Laser does 40 more damage to the Defending Pokemon.

Weakness: Psychic
Retreat Cost: [C]

------------------------------

Deoxys (Speed) - 60 HP [L]
Delta Species

Poke-Power: Form Change
Once during your turn (before you attack), you may search your deck for another Deoxys and switch it with Deoxys. (Any cards attached to Deoxys, damage counters, Special Conditions, and effects on it are now on the new Pokemon.) If you do, put Deoxys on top of your deck. Shuffle your deck afterwards. You can't use more than one Form Change Poke-Power each turn.

[L] Teleport Break - 20: Switch Deoxys with one of your Benched Pokemon.

Weakness: Psychic
Retreat Cost: [C]

------------------------------

Deoxys (Attack) - 70 HP [D]
Delta Species

Poke-Power: Form Change
Once during your turn (before you attack), you may search your deck for another Deoxys and switch it with Deoxys. (Any cards attached to Deoxys, damage counters, Special Conditions, and effects on it are now on the new Pokemon.) If you do, put Deoxys on top of your deck. Shuffle your deck afterwards. You can't use more than one Form Change Poke-Power each turn.

[DCC] Energy Loop - 60: Choose two energy cards attached to Deoxys and return them to your hand.

Weakness: Psychic
Retreat Cost: [C]

------------------------------

Deoxys (Defense) - 80 HP [M]
Delta Species

Poke-Power: Form Change
Once during your turn (before you attack), you may search your deck for another Deoxys and switch it with Deoxys. (Any cards attached to Deoxys, damage counters, Special Conditions, and effects on it are now on the new Pokemon.) If you do, put Deoxys on top of your deck. Shuffle your deck afterwards. You can't use more than one Form Change Poke-Power each turn.

[MC] Delta Reduction - 30: During your opponent's next turn, all damage done to Deoxys is reduced by 30.

Weakness: Psychic
Retreat Cost: [CC]

------------------------------

Latias - 70 HP [R]
Delta Species

Poke-Body: Dual Aura
If you have a Latios or Latios ex in play, all Poke-Bodies of evolved Pokemon (both yours and your opponent's) stop working.

[C] - Quick Draw: Draw a card.

[RCC] Dragon Claw - 40

Weakness: [C]
Resistance: [P][F]
Retreat Cost: [C]

------------------------------

Latios - 80 HP [W]
Delta Species

Poke-Body: Dual Aura
If you have a Latias or Latias ex in play, all Poke-Bodies of evolved Pokemon (both yours and your opponent's) stop working.

[C] Speed Fly - 10

[WCC] Aqua Blast - 50

Weakness: [C]
Resistance: [G][F]
Retreat Cost: [C]

------------------------------

Gyarados * - 80 HP [R]
Delta Species (Basic)

[RC] Spiral Grow - 20: Flip coin until you get tails. For each heads, attach a basic energy card from your discard pile to Gyarados *.

[RRRR] Final Burn - 50+: Discard cards from your deck until you have only 1 card remaining in your deck. This attack does 50 damage plus 20 more damage for each energy card discarded in this way.

Weakness: [L]
Retreat: [CC]

Commentary: The Deoxys do not look too special. They kind of remind me of the Castform from Delta Species. Latios y Latias seem to be alright, since they turn off Poke-Bodies of evolved Pokemon, which will be useful. Also, since the cards mention Latios ex y Latias ex, we can assume that those cards will be in the set, since the last ex's of them we had were in... EX Dragon? Gyarados * is both a Delta Species Pokemon and a Pokemon-*! Pretty interesting. I love it's attacks too. Pretty fun way to finish the game. Maybe the set will include some sort of card that allows you to return your discard pile cards to your deck, like Trash Exchange. That would make Gyarados* totally broken, although I doubt such card would exist. I will update the Holon Phantom page within the hour and edit this sentence out.

Holon Phantom BoosterHolon Phantom Images
The official Japanese Pokemon TCG website has posted several Holon Phantom images, which can be seen by clicking the links below. These images confirm past information we have had on the set, such as there being four Deoxys (Delta Species).

[Four Deoxys - Delta Species]
[Latios and Latias - Delta Species]
[Gyarados * - Delta Species]
[Gyarados, Flygon, Deoxys - Delta Species]

Translations and more information later today! You can visit our Holon Phantom page, which has not been updated with this info yet (until I wake up), by going to "Japanese TCG Sets" in the left menu.

Commenting and Forums
I have redone the entire commenting system and layout to our news program (in terms of coding). However, in doing so, all of the comments on old news stories cannot be seen, since they used an older layout that is no longer compatible with the new, link-to-forum-thread layout. I would have to go back to each individual news story and edit them to include new HTML and links, and it would just take way too long to do just for the comments. So, if you would ever like to see comments from users for a particular news story, just contact me and I can give them to you. All comments from now on will lead to a PokeBeach forum thread, so if you want to comment on a particular news story, such as this one, simply click "View/Add Comments" and you will be directed to a thread just for this news story in which you may comment on. Clicking the link will also allow you to read the thread to see what other people have said. To register on our forums, which will allow you to post on both the forums themselves and the thread relating to this news story, [click here].

Finals are coming soon. I might be a little tied up.

Banette exBanette ex - EX Legend Maker
[Pokemon.no], the official Pokemon Norwegian site, has posted a picture of Banette ex from EX Legend Maker. The image is the actual picture PUSA sends to the printers, which is why it is not holographic, since it has not been printed on holo paper yet. Two errors on the image: (1) There is no "Evolves from Shuppet" text and (2) "Banette ex" is too far to the right. Hopefully PUSA will fix this by the time it comes out, since it appears to be an early version of the card and is not completely corrected. To see a larger version of the image, click the thumbnail on the right. The official Norwegian site also promises to post a few more images within the next few weeks, which we will post here.

Forum Update and Changes to Commenting
The forums... are doing well. On the old forums, it took people a couple of weeks to reply to a thread, but now most of the time, it takes only a few minutes, showing how active they now are. If you do not want to miss out on all of the action, then you should [register on the forums]. We have added new mods, and will be adding more soon. Also, I have changed the commenting system... again. From now on, all comments will be linked to an individual news topic on the forum.

EX Legend MakerLarger EX Legend Maker Images
Whoops, forgot to post about these images the other day. I have obtained larger images of the EX Legend Maker booster box and theme deck box, as well as a "Coming Soon" picture of Mew that shows off the Mew artwork of the set. You can see the pictures by clicking the links below.

Veronica TaylorVeronica Taylor's Reply
As I posted the other day, my friend PokemonTrainerLisa e-mailed Veronica Taylor (Ash/May's voice actor) regarding 4Kids and the rumors that they were losing the dubbing rights to Pokemon. Taylor has now given permission for her e-mails to be posted publicly:

Lisa-
Thanks for your email. We actually don't know yet what will be happening with the show for next season. We are waiting to hear if Pokemon USA will resign contracts with 4Kids. If they choose to go elsewhere the voices will most likely change as we are under contract with 4Kids and not Pokemon USA. Everyone involved with the show would be extremely upset if this should happen. We are hoping that it will all be resolved soon.
We'll see.....
Wishing you all the best and Happy New Year!
Veronica

------------------

Lisa-
Feel free to share the info. Who knows, maybe the fans' input could even sway Pokemon USA to resign! As of now, we have no news.
All the best,
Veronica

So it would now seem as if the possibility of 4Kids losing Pokemon is real. We can only hope that if 4Kids loses the Anime, another dubbing company will pick it up and we will keep the same voice actors.

Corphish and Grovyle attack the RegisMew and the Wave Guiding Hero OST
I totally forgot about offering the music for download! Today's song is titled "Retaliate!!!" and plays when Ash and friends are running away from Regirock and Registeel, while having Corphish and Grovyle attack the two to hold them off. Now that I have seen the movie, I can tell you exactly when a certain song plays in the movie. :p

The Forums
Wow, the forums are actually getting posts - more so that I expected. I'm actually visiting my own forum more than other forums I used to go to all the time, which sure is something. We have some great discussions going on and a great community so far, so be sure to sign up and to join in the discussion! I have made it so that when you register, you are instantly a member, and do not have to do any of that "activate your account through e-mail" junk. We will also be assigning mods soon, which will be handpicked based on how active they are and the quality and content of their posts, as well as how much they contribute to the site.

There has been NO news on the TCG front or Pokemon gaming front for the past week or so. However, I do have one very important piece of information regarding the Pokemon Anime and 4Kids, which I am not allowed to post without permission until Veronica Taylor (Ash/May's voice actor) responds to an e-mail from one of my friends. My friend had e-mailed her asking her if the rumors about 4Kids and them losing the dubbing rights to Pokemon were true, and Taylor responded! I have the e-mail in hand, but I don't want to get Veronica Taylor into trouble by posting what she said, since it could breach her contract to speak publicly on behalf of 4Kids (I almost got Mike Pollock, the narrator of Pokemon, into trouble once, so I don't want to take any risks with another 4Kids voice actor). :p Yeah, so anyways, hopefully we will be able to post/summarize what Taylor said about the situation. If not, then, ummm... Well, I guess 4Kids will leave all of their Pokemon fans out in the dark until what happens, happens.

EDIT: Added dub titles to the right menu for "This Month's New Episodes."

School starts tomorrow. :( It's raining on my... I mean the Tournament of Rose's Parade. I originally thought that this would had been the first time it was going to rain on the parade, but apparently it did rain on it once 51 years ago. It's raining so hard that the channel airing the parade keep showing those weather warnings that say "SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS IN THE BLA, BLA, and BLA areas. TUNE IN TO CHANNEL BLA FOR MORE INFO" I better go hide under my bed.

New Forums
I have created new forums using myBB, a piece of forum software that is supposed to rival vBulletin. I have not changed the skin on it yet since I was up until 5:00 last night working on it, but I will get to it soon. If people sign up and post in it, it could be a successful forum, BUT the visitors are the ones who will be determining how successful it will be, so it is in your guys' hands. I will also be looking for moderators when the forum picks up in activity. In the meantime, you can join and post in the forums by [clicking here].

UltraPro EX Legend Maker Binder
UltraPro will be releasing EX Legend Maker themed binders in February in celebration of the set! Each binder will contain fourteen pages, each with nine card slots, and will be able to hold 126 Pokemon cards (252 if you put cards on the front and back of each page). The binders will feature Pokemon artwork from EX Legend Maker (Arcanine, Banette, Aerodactyl, and Mew) that will be both on the front and back covers of each binder. The retail price will be $15.95 per binder. You can see one of the binders, featuring Arcanine (front) and Aerodactyl (back), to the right.

Latios y Latias on Cartoon Network Tomorrow
Pokemon Heroes will be premiering on network television for the first time at 11 AM tomorrow on Cartoon Network. If you did not catch the movie on the big screen when it was out, or forgot to buy the DVD/VHS (bad you), then this is your chance to catch the movie! Pokemon Heroes is considered by many to be one of the best Pokemon movies (before Mew, people thought it was the best), and considering how "Pokemon Ranger and the Prince of the Sea" will be based off a location in the area of where this movie takes place, and how there is a cameo appearance of this movie at the end of the Mew movie, you don't want to miss it (although why that would make you watch the movie I do not know). Remember, 11 AM, Cartoon Network, tomorrow.

Updating twice in one day. Please read the previous news story if you did not read it earlier. 2006 is almost here! Here in California, there are still five hours left. Will it rain on the Rose Parade this year for the first time? I'm not a weather forcaster, but it has been pouring here all day, and I am only twenty or so miles away from where the parade is held. Hopefully it will clear up by Monday and the record for no rain will not be broken. :p

EX Legend Maker Booster Box, Theme Deck Box, and Set Description
Yet again we have been sent early information on the next new set! This information confirms, if there was any doubt, that EX Legend Maker is the Japanese Eidolon Forest set! Below you can see the booster box and theme deck images, as well as the official set description.



Set Description
What secrets does Mew hide that Pokemon Trainers have been waiting to learn? This is your chance to help players unravel the truth behind the most mysterious Pokemon of all. EX Legend Maker - it's the stuff legends are made of!

1. More powerful Pokemon-ex and legendary Pokemon to find and play.
2. A cool new collection of Stadium cards to expand game strategy.
3. Includes the new React Energy that affects each Pokemon differently!
4. Holographic box-topper card inserted in each booster display.
5. Exciting holographic parallel set for players and collectors alike!
6. Over 90 cards in all!


The two theme deck names are Groundbreaker and Shadowquake. EX Legend Maker is going to be a bit smaller than our usual sets. The original Eidolon Forest was 77 cards, plus 15 unique cards from the Banette theme deck (92 in total), so our set will probably be made only of the cards from the Japanese set, and possibly some other odds and ends. We will see the return of Rainbow Energy, improved fossil cards, and powerful EXs, such as Arcanine and Flygon. To see the spoilers of the Japanese set, simply click "Eidolon Forest" under "Japanese TCG Sets" in the left menu.
