Well, the official site last night revealed the data regarding the release of Darkraifor you to obtain it in the games. On May 31 and June 1, in selected Toysrus stores across America, Darkraiwill be given out. It is not know if they will give you Darkrai straight or ifthey will give you the Member Pass for you to obtain Darkrai yourself... however we will provide that information to you when it comes.
The stage is composed of two areas; a sort of holy ground above and a cavelike structure below.
Naturally you can expect appearances from none other than Dialga and Palkia!!
Dialga, a Temporal Pokémon, appears!
Here’s Palkia, a Spatial Pokémon!
When you enter the stage, you may notice a slight bluish or purplish tint to the scenery. This coloring, which indicates the Diamond or Pearl versions of the stage, is decided at random each time you play.
The former color indicates Dialga will appear, while the latter color scheme heralds the coming of Palkia.
Each of these Pokémon cause different effects to occur on the stage.
The floor is crumbling away!
A laser beam crashes down from the sky!
The beam rips right through the cave!
The whole stage just tilted sideways!! It’s just an illusion—don’t be fooled!
Everything’s been flipped upside down!! But it’s all an illusion! An illusion, I tell you!!
Now the whole fight’s in slow motion. Perhaps someone’s manipulating time?
Hmm, those are some supernatural effects. One should expect nothing less from these Legendary Pokémon.
You can also expect guest appearances by Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf.
A casual guest appearance.
Additionally, aside from Dialga and Palkia you might occasionally see another Pokémon pop up.
Could that be...Cresselia?!
It’s the Aura Pokémon, Lucario. Lucario is a Pokémon, but for some reason, there’s something lonesome about it.
Lucario’s inner power, called Aura, increases its power in proportion to the danger Lucario is in. Keep the fight lively with Lucario’s high-risk, high-reward fighting style!
Lucario uses a graceful, self-developed style of martial arts. Take care when fighting Lucario, because its reach extends farther than the length of its limbs.
Even from a distance like this...
Lucario’s hits connect!
If you’re going to name one distinctive feature about Lucario, you’ve simply got to mention the Aura abilities.
Here you can see Lucario’s Aura emanating from its hand.
In Smash Bros., Aura strengthens Lucario’s attacks according to how much damage Lucario has taken. The higher your damage percentage, the stronger your hits will be.
Lucario at high damage is a force to be feared.
Lucario’s Aura-based attacks have an ethereal field surrounding them.
<Standard Special Move: Aura Sphere>
The size of Lucario’s Aura Sphere serves as a rough indicator of the current strength of Lucario’s Aura.
Even the size of a fully charged Aura Sphere...
The damage and speed of the projectile also increase, of course.
<Side Special Move: Force Palm>
This useful move hits enemies with an Aura attack when used from a distance, and changes to a close-range attack when performed near an enemy.
Here’s Force Palm at a distance.
And again, performed in close-quarters combat.
<Down Special Move: Double Team>
Time Double Team so that an enemy attack connects with you, and Lucario will launch into a counterattack.
Now, if an attack makes contact with Lucario while this is going on...
Lucario splits into two!
And launches a surprise attack to counter!
This attack also receives a boost in strength proportionate to your damage percentage courtesy of Lucario’s Aura ability.
Let me tell you, when you flash the opponent one of those "I’m wide open" poses and then counter their strike, if feels ridiculously good.
<Final Smash: Aura Storm>
Behold the true power of Aura!
For Aura Storm, Lucario jumps high into the air and releases a ferocious Aura beam.
To really use this move effectively, you’ve got to direct the heading of the beam by pressing left and right on the Control Stick. Try tilting the Control Stick in the direction of the enemy you want to blast before Lucario releases the beam.
As a side note, there are moments in the game where Lucario appears to be speaking, but it’s not actual speech—it’s a sort of telepathy it uses
The release date for Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2 games has been revealed for the US. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Time/Darkness was said to be released in the second quarter of the year. Well that's been confirmed and the release date for the sequels of the original Mystery Dungeon games is the 20th of April.
Annouced sometime last year, Pokemon Ranch is a game that you could download with the Wii that acts as a second storage system. The game now is called Everybody's Pokemon Ranch. The game is simply transfering pokemon from your Diamond and Pearl onto the farm owned my Yukari. The pokemon will all be brought down to about the same size so a Dialga for example could be the size of a Pikachu. You'll be able to interact with them as a Mii as well as take pictures to post onto message boards or transfer them onto a computer to view. The limit to how many pokemon can be stored onto the farm is 1000. Its unknown how many Wii points this will cost nor has the release date been revealed for this in the US.
Many people say that Gold and Silver was the best and it was awesome. But there have been a lot of pictures on the internet about a remake of Gold and Silver so here is two videos on it.
Details on the plot of the upcoming 1hr Pokemon Ranger special to be shown in Japan have been revealed or have leaked. Pokémon Ranger! The Wave-Guiding Riolu is the title of the 2 episodes, which like the Deoxys special shown in the Battle Frontier season will air together on the same day as a special. The episode is said to involve Ash and the group meeting the male protagonist in the upcoming game Pokemon Ranger Batonnage and trying to protect a Riolu. The villain of the episode(s) is Hunter J. The episode ironically will air on the day Pokemon Ranger Batonnage will be released in Japan, March the 20th.
Information has been revealed about the 11th Pokemon movie Giratina and the Bouquet of the Sky Shaymin from the official japanese website as well as a new trailer for the movie. If you don't want to know what happens in the movie or the basic plot, I suggest you stop reading now.
In the last movie, Dialga and Palkia had a massive battle in the small town of Alamos. Well the battle has apparently distorted both time and space. Meanwhile in another world or dimension called the Reverse World a place which is a mirror image of the Pokemon world, dark, poisonous clouds have begun to enshroud the area due to the battle between the titans of time and space. The ruler of the Reverse World, Giratina has become enraged at the destruction caused from the battle. With this, it starts to lure Dialga over to the Reverse World...
The villain for the movie is known as Zero. He wears a Giratina themed outfit with the number 0 emprinted on his chest, hence the name Zero. Zero owns a Magnezone as well as a massive army of Magnemite. 0 also owns a robot called Infi who in turn controls his mothership called Megaliba. 0's goal in the movie is to capture Giratina and of course, use it to become ruler of the world. Another new character has also been revealed for the movie, an explorer who looks a bit like Buck from the Diamond and Pearl games. His name is Mugen and he's a talented scholar studying about the Reverse World. He owns a Shieldon.
Shaymin's role in the movie has also been particially revealed. It uses telepathic powers to locate Ash and the group before guiding them to a garden of some kind called the Flower Garden of Glacidia. Shaymin's other role, if it has any others roles has not been revealed yet. Regigigas is another legenday pokemon said to feature in the movie. All that is known so far about Regigigas is that it has awoken somewhere, possibly from the Flower Garden of Glacidia. Other pokemon's roles in the movie such as Palkia has not yet been revealed yet.
More updates when more information is revealed. However there is some speculation already about various things since the plot of this movie is linked to the previous one so its basically like a carry-on thing. Maybe we'll see more episodes or movies like this in the future. On one final note, I will not be uploading this week's pokemon episode onto Youtube mainly because the episode was rather dissapointing. I'll give details tomorrow and maybe a POTW.
More information has been revealed about Everyone's Pokemon Ranch from the game's website. The game will be downloadable for 1000 Wii points from the 25th of March in Japan. Also, if you have multiples copies of Pokemon Diamond, Pearl or both, you can use 8 games at once to store 1000 different pokemon on the ranch. The tranfered pokemon however must be returned to the original game it came from so you can't trade with yourself via the farm (at least not yet with other games).
Also, the owner of the ranch Yukari will on some occasions be willing to trade pokemon with you. It's unknown how often, when or what she'll trade yet. She sometimes might also give you the location details of a certain pokemon you might not have seen in your pokedex so you'll be able to go back and catch it. Yukari will also bring a new pokemon to the ranch everyday, allowing you to interact with it despite you not owning it. The pokemon on the ranch can also be arranged according to type, ability, etc. It also seems like the more pokemon you send onto the farm, some extra features will be unlocked like more various camera angles and such. More information to you when it's revealed.
Also the US air date of the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2 Special has been revealed. The special will air sometime during the weekend before the game's release on Monday 20th.
