I don’t have much time for an update tonight. I was talking to one of my friends on AIM this morning and he told me that letters were sent out to students in our grade saying we have to read a book for the summer. Since I have been on vacation for a week, I did not receive the letter at home, so I did not know about the reading assignment. So, since school starts next Thursday, I need to start reading it immediately (since I hate to procrastinate). I bought the book late today from a small bookshop, so I will hopefully be able to spend a few hours tomorrow finishing it up.

Tomorrow, after I finish reading the book, I will be working on the Ruby and Sapphire sprites. I have already taken screenshots of half of the sprites, and I made a cool animated PokeDex to go along with the sprites to display them. So, be sure to check back tomorrow!

Sorry I didn't update yesterday. I had a major headache and the LCD screen wasn't making it any better. Anyways, two updates today…

EX FireRed and LeafGreen Theme Deck Lists
Thanks to GymLeaderPhil from the PokeGym, we now have both of the EX FireRed and LeafGreen theme deck lists before they have even been released in stores. The first theme deck is called EX FireRed, and features water and fire Pokemon (with a holo Pidgeot). The second theme deck is called EX LeafGreen, and features grass and lightning Pokemon (with a holo Beedrill). To view the complete theme deck lists, you can visit our Theme Decks page by [clicking here], and then clicking EX FireRed and LeafGreen on the left.

New Featured Article
SuperWooper has returned from his leap of absence and has written an article on the top ten cards of EX Hidden Legends. To read his excellent article, you can visit the Featured Articles section by [clicking here].

Scans Not Yet Up, One Teaser Scans of Charizard ex
Okay, no EX FireRed and LeafGreen scans today. I have not received all of the scans from my sources yet, so I do not want to put them all up until I have enough to make an update with. However, as a little teaser, you can see a scan of Charizard ex on the right (click for a bigger picture).

Be sure to check back tomorrow for the scans of EX FireRed and LeafGreen, and hopefully we will have them!

EX FireRed and LeafGreen Set List, Scans of the Set Tomorrow!
We now have a complete set list of EX FireRed and LeafGreen! The main set has 112 cards, with the 113th card being the boxtopper, Charmander (holo). Three more secret cards are included in the set, and they are the legendary birds, Articuno ex (#114), Moltres ex (#115), and Zapdos ex (#116), bringing the total amount of cards in the set to 116. This set has a total of thirty holos (good luck completing this set using three booster boxes), twelve of them being ex's. The pre-release promo for the set is Wartortle. To view the complete set list, you can [click here] or look for "EX FireRed and LeafGreen" under "TCG Scans" in the left menu. Tomorrow we will more than likely have scans of EX FireRed and LeafGreen, and will most likely be the first website to have the scans, so be sure to check back here at PokeBeach.com!

Website Active Again Plus Scans Re-Uploaded
Great news everyone! My laptop has been given back to me! (while I am on vacation) As you probably noticed, I re-uploaded Jungle, Fossil, and Southern Islands (after fixing them up a bit). However, I messed up on about a dozen scans in Jungle and Fossil when I was trying to improve them a little, causing them to be a bit blurry (you probably won't notice it that much). So, today I will fix them and then re-upload them, making all the card scans extremely high quality. Within the next few months, I will be getting up each set one by one, and I estimate that sometime in or between September and October, PokeBeach will have every American card scan on the website for your viewing pleasure.

EX FireRed and LeafGreen Scans and Set List
PokeBeach will have EX FireRed and LeafGreen scans and a full set list sometime tomorrow or Monday, thanks to one of my real-life friends, Weilemom of the PokeGym, and one of my fellow TCG moderators from the PokeMasters forums, Roarkiller. We will most likely be the first website to have the scans and card list up, so if you want to be the first to see these cards on any website, be sure you check back here on both days!

Ok, now I am off to the pool! Day 1 of vacation has now started. Eight more days to go and then I go back home, where I can hopefully participate in the last EX FireRed and LeafGreen pre-release of my area. :)

I have some bad news. My parents took my laptop away (right after we got back from our vacation) which has all of the programs I need to work on the scans and to upload them, and it doesn’t seem like they will be giving it back to me for a while. This would had been the perfect time for me to finish all of the scans since I have three weeks of nothing to do, but the opportunity to work on them just had to be ruined. I will continue to ask for it back, and in the mean time, I will be working on fixing some of the pages on the site that have errors from the host transfer using my mom’s computer.

Wow, I wrote up an update on Tuesday and the server went down without me knowing, which deleted the updated file. I updated with that I would be doing community service for high school all this week, and that I would not be able to update at all.

Anyways, today I am going on vacation for an entire week and will not have internet access whatsoever. So, PokeBeach will not be updated at all for another week. When I get back, I will upload all of the image gallery pages since I have nearly finished them and then will have three weeks to work on all of the scans.

Ok, so until next week, have a safe summer and be sure to check back here then!

I spent all day working on the card pages and have finished and uploaded all of them. Of course, none of the scans have been uploaded yet, since I have to change the watermark on them to "PokeBeach.com." As you can see, all of the card pages have the full lists of all the cards in the specific sets. Next to them, you will notice a red "x," which means that scans are not available yet for that set, but will be soon. When a red "x" changes to a green check-mark (as seen in the Key Guide section of the left menu), the scans will have been uploaded and will be available for everyone to view. Hopefully, we will be seeing a few green check-marks tomorrow.

Anyways, tomorrow, I am hoping to fix the theme deck page and to fix the watermarks on the card scans and then upload them. Be sure to check back tomorrow for an update on everything!

Welcome to the new web host everyone! As you can see, I made a new layout, as I said before. All of the content is not up yet, so do not be surprised of any broken links. None of the scans are back up yet, either, and I will be working on them for the next few days. I will not update for any news until I have completely finished, so I will be getting everything back up soon. I hope you enjoy the new layout! Also, remember we are now PokeBeach.com, so update your bookmarks and/or brains.
