Pokemon Gold & Silver To Include Walking Meter - A Pokewalker (Pedometer) "is a special walking meter that will be bundled with the two remakes. Different from the meter that Nintendo included with its Power Walker health software, the PokeWalker meter looks like a Pokeball and ties in closely with the two remakes.  The PokeWalker device interfaces with your DS via infrared. You can transfer over a single Pokemon, who then becomes visible on the device's screen.  As you walk around with the PokeWalker in hand, the internal Pokemon will gain experience. Its affection for you will also grow. The device converts your foot steps into "watts," which can be used to catch wild Pokemon and search for tools for sending back to the main Heart Gold/Soul Silver software." - Read more at Andriasang.com

His classmates each had unique characteristics, he said, just like each Pokemon, imaginary super-powered creatures that transform themselves over time and experience. We have evolved from the little Charmander to the Charizard," he said. Echoing the Pokemon theme song, he wished for his fellow graduates "to be the very best, like no one ever was." - full story  ... Andrew ... I tip my hat to you .. that's classic!

"More downloadable Pokemon is on the way to WiiWare. Nintendo announced June 5th in Japan "Ransen Pokemon Scramble", a slightly different take on the Pokemon franchise. In Scramble, you take control of a windup Pokemon toy in overhead stages of play. As you defeat rival Pokemon and, eventually, bosses, you end up building up your roster of ally Pokemon. This is where the "Ransen" part of the title comes into play. "Ransen" is Japanese for "Battle Royal." Once you've gathered Pokemon of enough strength, you can enter a battlefield to face your party off against dozens of rivals. Your goal is to be the last one standing." - Source: IGN

The first two Pokémon 3D animated film shorts will return to Japanese theaters on October 14 in a Pokémon 3D Adventure double-billing with digital 3D remastering and a different ending for the first short. The 11-minute Mew o Sagase! (Find Mew!) film opened in Japan in 2005 as the first 3D film based on Nintendo's long-running creature-collecting game franchise. The 14-minute Pikachu no Kaitei Daibōken (Pikachu's Great Underwater Adventure) film premiered in the following year, but only in a few theaters such as Akihabara's Tokyo Anime Center.  By contrast, the Pokémon 3D Adventure screenings will run in 23 theaters throughout Japan. According to the official Pokémon website in Japan, the 2009 Mew o Sagase! screenings will have a different ending from the original 2005 screenings. Warner Mycal Cinemas is streaming the teaser trailers for the two shorts' original 2005 and 2006 theatrical runs. - Source: AnimeNewsNetwork
