As has been the case since 2004, Shakespeare has now scanned Primal Clash properly, replacing all of the prerelease scans that readers kindly sent in back in January. Thanks also goes to BigfootAUS for assisting me with the editing – took us almost 15 hours combined!

PokeBeach is looking for artists to create banners for the site! If you’re interested, please drop an e-mail at [email protected] by Wednesday with links to your work. All artists will be credited with a link to their portfolio over the banner, so this is a great opportunity to get a ton of recognition.

Hopefully the child with blood-red eyes doesn’t attempt to kill any artists, as they tend to possesses mysterious powers in their hearts and hands. :p

I’ve updated SteveP’s deck list program with Flashfire and the latest XY promos. The cards aren’t legal for tournaments until the set’s May 7th release date, but at least now the program will be ready for you when you need it! Make sure you clear your cache before accessing the program or it will use the old data file stored in your browser.

Steve P's Deck List Program

It took over a week, but I’ve completely updated SteveP’s deck list program with the latest sets, promos, Modified-legal cards, and XY Pokemon. SteveP has officially abandoned the program, but I will be updating it from now on. You can find it in the left menu under TCG as usual.

For those of you who do not know, the program allows you to create and print official deck lists for tournaments so that you don’t have to write them out, saving you and the tournament tons of time.

If you find any errors, please let me know in this thread.

PokeBeach is 10 years old today! I started this site on July 15th, 2003, the summer before I was entering high school when I was 14. And now I’m 24 and a grad student studying film production! Needless to say this site has been a major part of my life every day for these past 10 years. Sharing my love of Pokemon has always been my driving force and why I still continue to work on this site even 10 years later. It’s also why people like Shakespeare, Bangiras, Shining Raikou, Puddizzle, Vincent, Xous, Amu, and so many others have dedicated themselves to this site over the years. We all love this franchise!

Unfortunately, I do not feel this site has ever reached its full potential. The biggest hitch has always been trying to find a programmer who can bring our projects to life. It’s an extremely frustrating feeling to have all these things you want to do, and all the resources to pull them off, but no one to actually execute them. That has been the case for the majority of this site’s existence… until recently.

Some time in the next month or two this site is going to begin the path toward its full potential. It would have been today – and I was trying so, so hard to make it happen by today – but this summer literally went from 0 to 100 mph when I was offered the opportunity to write and direct a short web series for Subway. We’re actually going into production next month, so everything I planned to happen this summer has to be pushed back a bit. I think it’ll be worth the wait though. So stay tuned, and watch out for any evil-looking children with red eyes!

PokeBeach is currently looking for a reliable, experienced PHP programmer to fix a few things around here. Preferably, we need one who has worked with WordPress and myBB before. Please send any resumes and previous work examples to [email protected] (explaining the kind of things you have done with your coding). Work starts right away, must be completed within the next two weeks, and frequent communication is a must. Thanks!

In 1999 when I was only 10 years old, I decided I wanted to create a Pokemon website. At the time, Pokemon was one of my three major hobbies in life. And so I worked fervently day and night to make my dream a reality – learning HTML and web design, working at other Pokemon websites to learn how they do it, becoming a leader of certain parts of them, and trying to get involved in as many of my school’s writing-based activities as I could. After four years and several private incarnations of the website, PokeBeach officially launched on July 15th, 2003 when I was only 14 years old and about to enter high school. And now I’m a 23 year old graduate student going into my second year at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts! Crazy!

I made a promise in my very first post here in July 2003 that I would never abandon this website, and, as you can see, I always keep my promises (except on April Fools Day :D). I’m happy in many respects that I’ve kept the site going for this long because it’s taught me innumerable experiences about working with other people, interacting with a large public audience, managing your life when you have ten different things on your plate, bringing ideas to life, always finding a way, and turning your passion into something productive that everyone can utilize (if these points sound vague, it’s because maintaining this site has taught me everything anyone would ever want to know and it’s impossible to ever put it into words).

Nine years. Almost a decade. Happy times, sad times, infuriating times, times laden with knives and bullets directed at certain people and official companies (some thoughts don’t become reality!), times full of excitement and pure ecstasy, times full of disappointment, times full of doubt, and always just trudging through it all no matter what was going on. It was a long, hard, and often public process, especially when things went awry. I don’t know if it was always worth it, either – there were times where I couldn’t spend time with my family at all – times where I just locked myself in my room. Times where Pokemon work > everything else. I do have many, many, many regrets and would definitely do things differently if I could, but alas, nobody lives their life perfectly the first time and we should never expect that. We need pain in our lives to grow as people – without pain, we cannot grow.

Right now, my time on PokeBeach has been more limited in comparison to previous years. The whole film school thing is an intense experience. Not the making movies part. That part is easy once you get past the technical mumbo-jumbo. (I wish I could show you guys some of the shorts I’ve made, but we’re not allowed to exhibit them.) The hard part is trying to network with other people since my fellow film students are the people I’ll essentially be working with in the industry one day. There’s an art to it that I haven’t quite mastered yet. And since my ultimate dream is to make a live action Pokemon movie, I have to do anything I can to work my way up and turn that dream into a reality, even if it means sacrificing some of my time on this site. Makes sense, right? I wonder if any of my visitors are filmmakers too? Say hi if you are! Let’s “network.” :p

July 15th, 2013. Everything is going to change here. There’s another reason things have been the way they are lately. All will be revealed in due time.

SteveP’s deck list program has been updated with the cards from Noble Victories. The program allows you to fill out your tournament deck lists on the computer and print them out for use in tournaments. In the future, the program can be accessed from the left menu under the TCG section.

Shakespeare has scanned all of his Call of Legends cards; click the thumbnails below for larger images. Sorry for getting these up so late! Barely anyone sent in scans after the prereleases, and since Shakespeare’s cards would be arriving only a week or so later, we decided to just wait for his. But because of the recent snow storms, his cards arrived late, and by then it would have been a waste of time to request for people to scan their cards when his would be coming soon anyways. So that’s why we didn’t get up all the prerelease scans and why these are being posted late. Fair warning, though – I’m not going to go out of my way to edit the prerelease scans anymore if people do not help out and send theirs in.
