Ds Tourney and Every Pokémon Episode EVER!

This past weekend my League had a DS tournament using Pokémon Battle Revolution. Everyone who participated got a pack of TCG cards (either Supreme Victors, HeartGold/SoulSilver, or HS Unleashed.. pretty good for only having to pay $1 to play) and a Ukelele Pichu Notepad. Our winners were Aaron (Seniors Division) and Zack (Junior Division). Each got an additional pack of cards and a Shiny Suicune, Entei, or Raikou (thier choice) for their DS game.. and yes these were the special event ones from Japan so whenever Black and White get released in the states Aaron and Zack can use thier new pokémon to activate the Zoroark event in thier games.

Today is the first day of the new Pokémon League season, officially starting this Saturday for my League. We got the League Kit this past Saturday which contains special foil prints of Spiritomb (Supreme Victors) and Donphan (HeartGold/SoulSilver) and special patches representing the Pokéatholon. I'll try to remember to scan them and post pics of the prizes on the Pokémon League page.

One last thing, I found this cool site that lets you watch every pokémon episode ever! Pokemon.com is working on doing the same, but it's taking a while. Anyway, if you want to watch some pokémon check out PokemonEpisode.org!

Pictures from Dragon*Con, New Pokémon, and upcoming League Tourney

Sorry for taking so long to post some pictures from Dragon*Con. I've been really busy with school work this week. Anyway, here you go...

From left to right: Earl as a Rocket Grunt, Lauren as May, Matt as Byron, and Aaron as Lt. Surge. You can vote on who had the best costume in the poll!

We were surprised by how many people wanted our pictures. It just goes to show that Pokémon is still very popular. We also found a lot of ther people dressed as pokémon characters like Nurse Joy, Officer Jenny, Giovanni, Umbreon, etc.

Also new pokémon have been released again! Pokébeach has a great article on them, so click here to see them!

For those of you in my League in Johnson City, we will be having a DS tournament on Sept 25th. If you have any questions simply comment below. (If you don't have a Google account to log in to just choose Name/Url and put in your first name.)

Pics of BW Starter Evos?! Maybe...

Serebii posted some new pictures that are possibly the evolutions to the Black and White starters. So far this is unconfirmed, but there were also some videos from elsewhere that they posted which are legit. As for the starters, Serebii says that the same source leaked info on the new Professor, Team Plasma, Triple Battles, etc so it's possible these are real! I think fully evolved Grass starter is ok, the fire one is pretty cool, and the water one is ok-ish... I prefer it'd look more like an otter. Anyway, it seems I am still on the fence on whether to start with the Grass or Fire starter if these turn out to be real. The main problem I have with the Fire starter, however, is I'm worried it will be Fire/Fighting based on it's stage 1's stance (flexing it's muscles). To see the news story yourself click here.

Pokébeach also has some videos, but not the starter evos yet. To see thier story click here.

On a different note, it appears I have the only promo misprint Mewtwo card in existence. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page under Other Promotional Cards.

Don't forget to say how much you love/hate the new starter evos in the comments!

*UPDATE 8:30pm EST* Serebii has pulled down the images of the starters so maybe they were confirmed fake. I checked the Fake Pokémon section on Serebii and they aren't shown there so I have no idea. Maybe the images were pulled for some other reason? Wierd.

*UPDATE 8:53am EST 9/4/2010* Serebii has reposted the image of the starters and Pokbeach has also posted them saying that there is a strong chance these are real!
