Within the next couple of hours, Mew and the Wave Guiding Hero - Lucario will be available for download through Bittorent! Right now, I am heading out to go look at Christmas lights with my cousins, so this update will be edited when I get back. In the meantime, if you want to download the movie in Japanese to watch, you first must download the program Bittorent below:


[Download for Bittorent]


When I get back, I will give directions on how you can download the movie itself. In the meantime, download the program above until I get back.

Monday, December 19th, 2005 @ 9 PM PST -  By: Water Pokémon Master

12/20: Still not done with my tasks for today. I had to re-do all of the set lists manually since I have changed the format for them, and then I found at that I forgot to include a certain tag, so I had to go back and re-do them again. All in all, I want to rip my hair out, since I spent way too much time on the stupid lists and did not finish the Dragon scans. So, nothing for today, but I should have the lists up tomorrow and should have the Dragon scans finished. Yet again, I do not finish on time. -_-;

Just running in real quick. My internet was down the entire weekend due to some sort of outage, so I just today started working on the EX Dragon scans. The scans were on my old laptop, and the only way I would be able to get them off it would be to upload them to my site, and then re-download them on to the computer I would be editing them on. So, without the internet, I couldn't exactly edit them. ^_^; As of now, I have finished 60 out of 100 of the scans, and will probably finish 10 more tonight. Tomorrow, I'll finish them up, and upload them, then start on EX Sandstorm, since I am now behind in schedule. My plans for Christmas Break:

• Tues, Dec. 20th: Finish Dragon, Start Sandstorm, Upload all of the set list pages
• Wed, Dec. 21st: Finish Sandstorm, Start R/S, Start Organizing Fake Card Blanks, Community Service from 7 AM - 8 PM
• Thur, Dec. 22nd: Finish R/S, Start Writing Fake Card Section, Fix Watermarks
• Fri, Dec. 23rd: Work on Fake Card Blanks Section, possibly finish
• Sat, Dec. 24th: Uhh, hello, it's Christmas Eve, time to prove that SANTA IS A JYNX!!!! (and finish up Fake Card Blanks section)
• Sun, Dec. 25th: Display on national television that Santa is a Jynx and that she steals little kids' dollies. (and CELEBI-R-A-T-E with my iPod video)
• Mon, Dec. 26th: Work on Nintendo Promo Scans
• Tues, Dec. 27th: Finish Nintendo Promos, update Modified Carddex with Delta and Promos
• Wed, Dec. 28th: Work on something with the site that I don't feel like explaining
• Thurs, Dec. 29th: Do two or three pages of my AP US terms, read Ch. 21 of AP US book
• Fri, Dec. 30th: Start Scarlet Letter Essay
• Sat, Dec. 31st: Finish Scarlet Letter Essay
• Sun, Jan. 1st - Mon, Jan 2nd: Rest.

Links

Should the set scan links in the left menu be put in order from newest to oldest (for example, under Modified TCG Sets, should EX Delta Species be the first link and EX Hidden Legends be the last)?

Yes
No

Gaahh, I had this whole update typed up and everything, and then I opened up AIM and it brought up that stupid "AIM Today" page, erasing everything I typed. I hate AIM. Everyone should use Trillian, or at least [download this cool AIM clean-up tool] that gets rid of all of the AIM ads and annoyances of it. Also, I am officially on Christmas / Winter Break right now, so prepare yourselves for a better PokeBeach by the end of it.

New Japanese Player Club Promos

Vincent has, once again, translated for us some new Japanese cards - this time being the new Player Club promos! Will these ever make it to America? Jirachi, Lugia, and Ho-Oh might, but I doubt that the _______'s Pokemon will ever leave Japan.

Another Mew / Lucario OST

Today's OST is titled "Mew - Emotion of Beginning 2." I do not understand the translation or how this song could tie into the movie, but it kind of sounds like it could be the Mew theme for the movie, since all of the Mew songs on the soundtrack sound similar to this one.

1st PokeBeach Assignment - EX Scans

The votes are in! You guys want me to finish the EX series scans first, so I will! By this Sunday, I will have one full set finished. However, which one am I to do? Below, you can vote for the set you want me to have finished by Sunday. In about twelve hours, I will begin to work on the set that you guys want the most, so the voting time is extremely limited. Get your votes in now!

First Project

Which of the following sets should WPM finish scans for by Sunday?

Friday, December 16th, 2005 @ 3 AM PST -  By: Water Pokémon Master

EDIT: Scans of the Holon Phantom cards added, along with the set's booster pack.

Oh my gosh, just ONE more day left until FREEDOM. I hope it goes by so fast that when I blink, it will be tomorrow! *blinks*



New Holon Phantom Spoilers!

Vincent has kindly translated for us two cards out of the Holon Phantom set!

DeoxysDeoxys (Normal) (Delta Species) - 70 HP (C)
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, any attack damage done to your opponent's Active Pokemon by Deoxys is increased by 40.

Weakness: P
Retreat: C

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

GyaradosGyarados (Delta Species) - 90 HP (ML)
If there is a Stadium card in play with Holon in its name, all damage done by your active Delta Species Pokemon to your opponent's Active Pokemon is increased by 10.

[MC] Hyper Beam - 20: Flip a coin. If heads, discard an energy card attached to the Defending Pokemon.
[LMCCC] Heavy Impact - 80

Weakness: L
Retreat: CC


The booster pack can be seen by [clicking here].


More Proof of LUCARIO

I failed to reference this in my rant the other day when I was talking about Lucario's name:

[A Lucario Product]

Click the link. It is a product from the official Japanese Pokemon Center's website. As you can plainly see, unless you have been infected with the "green" virus, it says "LUCARIO." If you still think it is Rukario, I will smack you so silly that you will be laughing to your death. ;)



PokeBeach Assignments

Keep sending those votes in! So far, the top three things most wanted are scans, fake card blanks, and the modified carddex updated. Voting ends later on today. Since scans are the sure winner due to the overwhelming number of votes for them, you might want to start thinking about which set you want me to have done by Sunday, your choices being EX R/S, EX Sandstorm, and EX Dragon. Don't vote yet on the specifics though, since I will be putting up a poll for that.

Yowza, I am updating a lot. I remember in December two years ago, I only had like two updates the entire month. Boy have I come a long way. My life = gone. XD


EX Legend Maker Logo
The EX Legend Maker logo has been revealed!



Hmmm, to get Mew in Emerald, you need the Old Sea Chart. The logo kind of looks like a piece of old paper, so it could be a map, thus alluding to everyone that this set is [Eidolon Forest]. This set is going to be released in February, which does seem to be the right time for 4Kids to release the Mew/Lucario movie, so this could very well be the Mew set for sure now. Also, as I have said in the past, Mew is the ancestor of all Pokemon, meaning all Pokemon evolved from it. Thus, it is considered a "legend/Pokemon maker." How deeply Nintendo/PUSA/whoever actually thought into this title, I do not know.


Lucario/Mew Music #6
We continue our Mew/Lucario marathon with yet again another OST (like you didn't see that coming)! This one is titled "Aaron," and is one of two Aaron songs available on the Mew soundtrack. This one has to take place in the very beginning of the movie, since it is at the very beginning of the soundtrack, and since we are in the past at the beginning of the Mew movie with Aaron sealing LUCARIO in an ORACLE, I would assume that this song somehow plays in all of that. Anyways, this is probably my second or third favorite song from the soundtrack, and you can download it below like usual!

[Aaron #1]
(3:17) - (7.38 MBs)


Homework Assignment for Sunday
Okay, before we begin the actual assignments, what do you guys want me to focus on? I'll tell you right now what I plan on having done by the end of Christmas/Winter Break, but you guys will be able to tell me what order I do them in.

1. All EX set scans (so just R/S, Sandstorm, and Dragon) done. Possibly Promos as well.
2. Re-watermarking of all scans to be less intrusive on the card art.
3. An entire fake card blanks database (I have inherited all of Pokemon Lab's blanks, as well as the blanks of a new person on the block, Fanking, who will be making blanks for Dark Pokemon, Delta Pokemon, etc.)
4. Pages on each of the TCG sets with all information regarding the sets, such as release dates, facts, etc.
5. Update the Modified Carddex with Delta Species and Promos if I finish them in time.
6. Card lists for all of the sets
7. ???

For whichever of the categories above you would like me to do first, simply send me an e-mail and give the number to which category (only ONE category). Do not tell me any specifics of the category, such as "Do the EX R/S scans" or "Put the Dark Pokemon blanks up." I just want to know what you guys want me to do FIRST. For example, if I get emails saying "Scans," I will start working on scans first during Christmas/Winter vacation. I will, however, post a poll asking what specifics of the project you guys want done. So, if scans are the first category, I will make a poll with specific sets and will do the sets in the order of what people want up the most. So, get those e-mails in! The deadline is Friday night. You can email me by clicking my name below this post.

I took my new laptop to the shop yesterday, and they said it would be a couple of weeks before I got it back. @_@ So, I am stuck with my old, in-four-pieces, won't-connect-to-my-wireless-internet, keyboard-is-tiny, very-slow, laptop. Updates are going to take a little longer to do now, especially since I have to go into another room and hook it up directly to the DSL modem, while trying to keep it all together. The slighest movement cuts off the power. XD

Miracle Crystal Set Page
I have added a page on the new Japanese set, Miracle Crystal. It contains all information we know on the set thus far. To view the page, [click here], and in the future, you can access it from the left menu under "Japanese TCG Sets."

Another Mew and Lucario OST
Today's OST is titled "Dance Party," and is the song that plays while everyone is dancing in the Mew movie at the party (duh). It is a highly addictive song, and it WILL get stuck in your head, especially if you play it twenty times like I have done. I like the song, although it does get a little annoying after a while. When you hear it, you may feel sudden urges to dance. Enough of the warnings, on to the song!

Report Card is Coming
This Christmas, all of the visitors of PokeBeach will be my teacher, and I will be the student. Each day, you as the visitors will post what I have to finish for my site, and at the end of the following day (my time, of course), you all will grade me on how well I accomplished the task and if I finished what I was assigned. Before Christmas vacation starts, I will post a schedule of what days I will not be home, and what projects I plan on working on during break, which you guys will choose for me to work on for a specific day. For example, on Friday, December 16th, I will post a list of "assignments," and you guys will vote on which one I should finish by Saturday night (Dec. 17th). When I finish it, you guys will give me a grade, and then you will also vote on what I should do next. I don't know what my punishment will be if I don't finish an assignment, so let's just say for now that if I don't finish something, the first person to e-mail me gets to choose a punishment for me, such as typing in a weird color, changing the header, or whatever. I will post (or think of) more details when the first assignments are announced on Friday. If you are totally confused by this game, just wait until Friday. ;)

Tuesday, December 13th, 2005 @ 6 AM PST -  By: Water Pokémon Master

I fell asleep after I did my homework last night, so I didn't get to update with the news. I have to leave for school in 30 minutes, so I'll only do the top story that I was excited about yesterday, since I won't have time for anything else. Also, because my new laptop broke AGAIN (wasn't my fault this time :p), it will be hard for me to update every day until I can get my older, in-four-pieces-laptop, internet-enabled, since for some reason it refuses to connect to any wireless network like it used to.

The NEXT, NEXT Japanese Set
We barely know anything about the Holon Phantom, yet we already have exclusive information on the set to follow it in Japan! The set after the Holon Phantom will be named Miracle Crystal, and will be released on March 11th in Japan. The following is all of the information we know about the set:

1. The theme of the set will be an "unexplored region," although we are not sure what region exactly. It might not be Holon.
2. The set will contain ALL of the Red/Blue (FireRed/LeafGreen) and Ruby/Sapphire starters, meaning we will see the Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Mudkip, Treeko, and Torchic lines in the set! (BLASTOISE!!! *drops dead*)
3. *Revives with Revive* There will be EIGHT EX Pokemon in the set. (BLASTOISE!!!)
4. Celebi * will be in the set.
5. Delta Species Pokemon will be in the set, once again.

Commentary: BLASTOISE!!! Oh, and Blaziken, Sceptile, Charizard, Swampert, and Venusaur. Is this going to be an awesome set or what? Most likely, those eight ex's will be the Stage 2 lines and two other Pokemon, although this has not been confirmed yet. Also, it seems like EXs will be sticking around a bit longer, although it is possible they will become extinct when the Diamond and Pearl blocks start. I will make a page on Miracle Crystal when I get home. Be sure to keep checking back here for all of the latest information on the Holon Phantom, Miracle Crystal, and EX Legend Maker, and to post in the commenting system about the set!

Two New Japanese Decks
Also being released on March 11th will be two pre-contructed decks. Each will contain either Groudon ex or Kyogre ex, and will have Delta Species Pokemon in them for the starter Pokemon, such as Treeko-D and Charmander-D. Most likely, these starter decks will be combined with Miracle Crystal for our set when it comes to America in who knows when. Thanks go to ToysRUsKid for notifying us of this information, and Vincent for translating it.

Tomorrow we will have some new and surprising set news. I must say I am completely excited about the news, and that it has been something that I have been hoping for since after FR/LG came out (hint hint). The reason I am not updating with it yet today is because I still need to make sure that it is accurate, so it will have to wait just one more day. I also am in a rush (not that kind of rush) since it is Sunday night and I still have homework to do, so I will have a lot of other stuff tomorrow as well that I was going to update with tonight but didn't have time to type up, such as new Kyogre movie news and speculation. :p

Nintendo / PUSA Press Release

Looks like Nintendo will no longer be completely in charge of distribution of Pokemon TCG products, but that Pokemon USA (PUSA), the guys who translate and design all of the TCG products, now will. PUSA originally sold all of their Pokemon TCG products to Nintendo, who then distributed it to stores, but now PUSA will take over that as well.

Nintendo of America Inc. and Pokemon USA, Inc. Announce Change in Pokemon Trading Card Game Distribution

Nintendo of America Inc. and Pokemon USA, Inc. today announce that effective January 1, 2006, Pokemon USA, Inc. will assume the consumer marketing and distribution responsibilities for the Pokemon® Trading Card Game (TCG) currently handled by Nintendo of America Inc.

For the last three years, Nintendo of America Inc. has managed the distribution and consumer marketing efforts for the Pokemon TCG working in tandem with the creators and manufacturers of the game at Pokemon USA, Inc. and The Pokemon Company. During this period Pokemon USA, Inc. has focused on establishing the Pokemon Organized Play program and international distribution for the game.

"We are proud of the successes Nintendo of America Inc. and Pokemon USA, Inc. achieved working as close partners on the Pokemon TCG. As the brand enters into its tenth year Pokemon USA, Inc. is best-positioned to direct the marketing and distribution efforts of the Pokemon TCG as an integral part of managing the Pokemon brand," says Gail Tilden, Nintendo's Vice President, Brand Management.

Pokemon USA and Nintendo will continue to work closely to promote and create synergy between all Pokemon franchise elements. "We look forward to continuing our close relationship with Nintendo of America and working together to build the brand to new heights," said Mr. Akira Chiba, President of Pokemon USA, Inc.


New Mew / LUCARIO Music

Today we bring you yet another OST from Mew and the Wave Guiding Hero - Lucario. The one available for download today is absolutely my favorite out of the entire soundtrack. I believe it is when (SPOILER) Lucario dies, since it is titled "Farewell Lucario" and is kind of emotional. Thanks go to SD Pokemom for translating the title of the song for me from Japanese.

[Farewell Lucario]
(2:55) - (6.56 MBs)

Be sure to check back tomorrow!

The below is being typed on a laptop with a broken screen, so I am unable to see what I am typing. If it looks funny, bare with me, I will fix it later - I am putting this up as soon as possible because it is breaking news from Japan. Let's see if I can do everything right barely being able to see what I am typing.

The title of the ninth Pokemon movie will be "Pokemon Ranger and the Prince of the Sea." I have summed up all we know so far about the movie:

1. Kyogre will be in it, with a strong possibility of a fourth generation Pokemon.
2. A blond, male Pokemon Ranger will star in it.
3. Ash and Pikachu will be in it, as usual (have to say since some people believe that the next generation will not have Ash and crew in it).
4. It will be the fourth Advanced Generation movie, with the next movie being a full-blown Diamond and Pearl generation movie.
5. It will come out next July in Japan.
6. It will somehow involve a place in Rome (like with Lati@s)
7. Production has already begun on it, and actually begun pretty early for it.
8. It should be the best movie yet since it stars a water Pokemon. :p

Commentary: I was wondering for the LONGEST time why Kyogre had not been in any movie, but only in a few episodes. Kyogre has been out for like three to four years now, and yet it’s just getting a movie right when Ruby and Sapphire is about to be haxxed? Eye yi yi. Hopefully, HOPEFULLY, HOPEFULLY the movie will star a water-type legendary D/P Pokemon.
