    Update (12:30 AM, Saturday): There was no “next movie preview” after the movies like with many Pokemon movies of the past. The end of each movie simply advertised the opposite movie. | Gin will be seeing both movies the day they premiere and we’ll post the summaries as soon as she writes them!

    A new Victini and the White Hero Reshiram and Victini and the Black Hero Zekrom trailer has been released, which you can watch below; thanks goes to Filb.de for recording it. Victini has been locked away in the Sword of the Earth castle for 1,000 years following the death of its Trainer. Victini hopes to one day be able to go to the sea (in one of the movie’s first teaser trailers, we saw Victini flying over the sea, so it’ll obviously make it). Dread, the “bad guy,” wants Victini so that he can revive the People of the Earth’s kingdom.

    According to Junichi Masuda’s blog, the soundtracks for both movies were created by two different composers. Apparently, Shinji Miyazaki, Pokemon’s music composer, oversaw the process. However, we’re not sure if he actually wrote the music this time – guess we’ll find out soon! Maybe they want new blood for the music? It must be hard to compose new themes for the same franchise after thirteen movies and fourteen television seasons.

    Zoroark: Master of Illusions will be released in North America on September 20th according to the Warner Bros. Shop. Back in February, a prototype image of the DVD box showed it to include a Celebi card, but the current box art below does not reflect this, so it is unknown if the card will still be included.

    Red Collection will be released in Japan on Friday but, as usual, Toho Auctions has posted scans of the set before its street date. Most of Red Collection‘s cards had already been revealed over the past few months, but now we have them all together below. Thanks goes to Bangiras for doing the translations at 3 AM in the morning while being sick! :p Click the thumbnails below for larger images.

    The secret rares in the set are full art versions of Virizion, Terrakion, Cobalion, Victini, and N, along with an ultra rare Meowth card. That’s quite a few secret cards, bringing the set from 66 cards to 72! To discuss the set, feel free to post in this thread on our forums.

    Update (11:30 PM) – We have confirmed Durant’s translation, except its attack discards cards from the top of the deck, not the bottom. A clearer image has been added below. Also, Rocky Helmet only works when the Pokemon is the Active Pokemon. | I’m still alive – there has just been no news worth posting!

    The official Japanese TCG blog has revealed Rugged Helmet (#064), which we knew would be in Red Collection a while ago, as well as a clearer image of Druddigon (#059), which was previously revealed in the Victini theme deck booklet. Thanks to Gin and forum mod Viper.Fox, we also have images of Vanilluxe (#020) and Durant (#054), which were both shown in an extended Red Collection commercial at Japan’s World Hobby Fair last week. Thanks goes to Nanimonoka for the translations below! Remember, Red Collection will be released next Friday and we’ll have scans and translations before then!

    Weakness: Metal (x2)
    Resistance: none
    Retreat: 2

    A comedy group on YouTube called Underbelly recently conducted an interview with Stuart Zagnit, the voice actor of Professor Oak under 4Kids. In the interview, he discusses how he auditioned for Professor Oak, what it was like to record episodes, Pokemon’s popularity, and how he learned 4Kids lost the license to Pokemon. TPCi should take him back whenever Professor Oak decides to appear on the show again!

    On a related note: I was at Anime Expo this past weekend where Vic Mignogna, a popular anime English voice actor best known for playing Edward Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist, revealed during his Q&A session that he had just recorded a voice role for Pokemon. On Monday during his autograph session (I was first in line so I could ask him about it :D), his wife informed me that he had recorded the role during a visit to New York. So, he’s probably voicing a one-time character. He had expressed an interest in playing a role on Pokemon for quite some time, so TPCi told him to drop by if he was ever in town. When I went up to him for my autograph, though, he said he wasn’t allowed to say which role he played. Guess we’ll find out soon!

    It’s almost July 16th, the day both Victini and the Black Hero Zekrom and Victini and the White Hero Reshiram – the fourteenth Pokemon movies – will premiere in Japanese theaters! As such, new trailers have been released, as you can see below (the third one opens in a new window and you have to hit play to start it). I will not be in Japan this year to write a movie summary, but Gin plans to attend both movies on the first day and is going to send us plot details as soon as she can! Thanks goes to Filb.de for recording the trailers, as usual!

    Update (9:45 AM) – Oops, Cover Fossil actually requires you to look through the bottom 7 cards of your deck, not the top 7 (because you’re digging for the Pokemon). This is what happens when Bangiras goes to China for summer school and I have to do the translations myself. :p

    The official Japanese TCG blog has just revealed Carracosta and Cover Fossil from Red Collection; click the thumbnails below for larger images. With their reveals we now know how Fossil Pokemon will work: to play a Fossil Pokemon like Tirtouga and Archen, you will have to play their respective Fossil Trainer first (Cover Fossil and Plume Fossil). Each Trainer allows you look at the bottom seven cards of your deck, and if you find the Pokemon that the Fossil revives into, you can play it to your Bench as a “Revived Pokemon.” In this way, you cannot play Tirtouga and Archen directly into play like other Pokemon – you have to use their Fossil Trainers first. The clause under Tirtouga’s name states this as well.

    Because Fossil Pokemon are harder to play now, as the blog states, each Pokemon was actually created to be as powerful as a stage higher. So while Tirtouga is technically a Basic Pokemon, because you have to go through an extra step to get it out, they made the card have the power of a Stage 1 Pokemon. That’s why Tirtouga’s HP and attacks are much stronger than your average Basic Pokemon. The same applies to Carracosta – it was made as if it were a Stage 2 Pokemon despite being a Stage 1. Remember, Red Collection will be released in Japan on July 15th and we’ll have scans before then!

    Cover Fossil from Red Collection

    Cover Fossil – Trainer

    Look at the bottom 7 cards of your deck. If you find a Tirtouga there, you may put it on your Bench. Shuffle the remaining cards back into your deck.

    You can use any number of Trainer cards during your turn.


    Tirtouga from Red Collection

    Tirtouga – Water – HP90
    Revived Pokemon – Can only be played by Cover Fossil to the Bench.

    [W][C] Water Gun: 30 damage.
    [W][C][C] Surf: 60 damage.

    Weakness: Grass (x2)
    Resistance: none
    Retreat: 3


    Carracosta from Red Collection

    Carracosta – Water – HP140
    Stage 1 – Evolves from Tirtouga

    Ability: Solid Rock
    When this Pokemon is damaged by an attack, flip a coin. If heads, the damage is reduced by 50.

    [W][W][C][C] Crunch: 80 damage. Discard an Energy attached to the Defending Pokemon.

    Weakness: Grass (x2)
    Resistance: none
    Retreat: 4

    Update (1:30 PM) – Added high-quality screencaps and translations of all the remaining cards below. We still have to more clearly translate the one clause under Tirtouga’s name regarding Cover Fossil and will update this story again once we do.

    During today’s new episode of Pokemon in Japan, a new commercial for Red Collection aired, revealing ten new cards as well as six previously obscured cards. Thanks to nYoo of Filb.de, we now have high-quality screencaps of all the cards, which you can click below for larger images; the cards have also been translated by Sabonea Masukippa.

    Partial Tirtouga Image from Red Collection Commercial

    A screenshot of Tirtouga reveals some of the changes to the Fossil Pokemon mechanic. Above the image of Tirtouga’s Cover Fossil, the text says “Revived Pokemon” rather than “Basic Pokemon.” Under Tirtouga’s name, rather than saying “Evolves from Cover Fossil,” there is a longer clause written; we are only able to partially translate it right now due to the image quality, but it at least says, “The Cover Fossil —- place on the Bench.” We know Fossil Pokemon are going to be handled differently in this set than in the past, and we know Cover Fossil and Plume Fossil are in this set as Trainer cards, so whatever is going to be different about Fossil Pokemon is going to be in that clause and on the Fossil Trainers themselves. Feel free to discuss the set and post your speculation here!

    Update (Friday, 7/1, 12:00 PM): We missed that Super Rod also allows you to look for Pokemon – it actually has the same effect as Night Maintenance now! It’s fixed below. Thanks goes to Freakmasta for the correction! | Sorry for the lack of updates – been working on a super secret site project! :p

    We have received exclusive images of three new Red Collection cards: Eelektrik (#26), Super Rod (#60), and Eviolite (#65). Super Rod has the same name as the Super Rod from Neo Genesis, but it has completely different text, which means the old Super Rod has been replaced! (Did they really just replace a card from 2000?) And it’s a reprint of Night Maintenance from Mysterious Treasures to boot! Eviolite is the first Pokemon Tool we’ve seen in the Black & White era – rather than being classified as a Tool card like in previous sets, however, it’s simply a Trainer card with an added “Pokemon Tool” rule. Thanks goes to Gin for the below translations!

    Gin along with Viper.Fox has also provided us with magazine scans of CoroCoro Ichiban and Terebi Game which reveal the first card image of Dwebble. They also show a complete image of Litwick, the first image of Stunfisk (we already posted its spoiler the other day), and clearer images of other cards from Red Collection. Click all of the thumbnails below for larger images.

    Pansage, Beartic (#20), Braviary (#88), and Pokemon Catcher (#95) from Emerging Powers have been revealed; click the thumbnails below for larger images. Pansage will not be included in the set’s promo blister pack – it merely serves as a placeholder in the beta product image below. Remember, the set’s theme decks will be released on August 17th and then the set itself will hit store shelves August 31st.

    We have also learned that the fall 2011 tins will feature alternate art versions of Serperior, Emboar, and Samurott from Black & White. The three promos will be holo and the tins will be released in October. We’ll get a clearer image of them soon!

    A new “Black & White Trainer Kit” will be released in stores on August 3rd for $12.99. Each kit will come with two 30-card decks featuring a holo Excadrill card and Zoroark card from the future Emerging Powers set, but with alternate artwork. Other goodies include a deck box featuring the two Pokemon, a Black & White booster pack, a Pokemon TCG Online code for activating the decks online, two guide booklets that show you how to use each deck and card, as well as a playmat, coin, and damage counters. Like previous Trainer Kits, the product is meant to teach new players how to play the TCG (by letting the player who gets the Zoroark deck learn how weaknesses work). Click the thumbnail below for a larger image of the packaging.
