    [April Fools Proof Shield] Remember how I said that with my luck, the university I want to go to will tell me on the last hour of the last day whether I was accepted or not? It has been almost an entire day since they were supposed to tell me at the latest. I hope they are not playing an April Fools joke on me like I did to all of you! [/shield]


    Two April Fools Jokes Revealed – If you read the news story below, you would have seen the secret message I encoded into the second paragraph from the Thursday, March 29th news story – “WPM WILL FOOL U.” No one figured out that I slipped a secret message into that paragraph because (a) no one was looking for it, and (b) the paragraph was contradicting the secret message. I am surprised that no one even thought to look for a secret message, considering how choppy the structure of the paragraph was and our past history with April Fools jokes. Anyway, here are the pranks that were pulled:

    Forums – Towards the end of last summer, our forums were compromised by Turkish hackers. As I stated in several of my news stories this past week, school was extremely busy for me, with major assignments due all week. When I was working on my Armenian Genocide internal assessment for IB, I came across an Armenian website hacked by Turkish people, which reminded me of our own hacking, and thus, the idea for creating a fake hacking for our own forums. So, I made it appear that all of the mods were banned, placed a “hacked” message on the top of the forums (you had to scroll down to see the real forums, which some people did not even realize), and I told all of the moderators not to respond to any threads. The results? People were freaking out. Some even went to other forums in the Pokemon community and voiced their concerns. It was quite hilarious to see how some people reacted – I received 19 e-mails and several PMs.

    Press Release about Worlds – This one was not as obvious of an April Fools prank because (a) it was believable, and (b) it was written to sound like a press release. PokePop contacted me on Saturday with the idea of both of us posting a fake press release to get everyone in the TCG community to believe that it was real, and I was excited with the idea and went along with it. He wrote the original press release and created the idea behind it, and then I heavily edited it to sound more realistic. I received so many instant messages about this press release that I had to block the entire TCG group on my buddy list at certain times in the day due to the massive amounts of messages bombarding me. Even the most experienced players were contacting me, astonished with the idea of Worlds ending in a type of “pre-release draft.” I bet no one expected two websites posting the same fake press release, and that is why there was merit behind it and not as many people doubting its origins. :D


    Until next year!

    With April 1st coming up, please do not be fooled by websites playing tricks on you. People will surely try to present something fake with Pokemon in general. Most importantly, do not become fooled by new Pokemon! We all know that D/P is out now, so there surely cannot be any new Pokemon coming out anytime soon. If there is a new Pokemon to be revealed anytime soon, it will probably be in two to three years. Let’s not go posting on forums and websites “Oh my gosh, a new Pokemon was revealed today in ____,” because it will not be true, guaranteed, 100%, cross my heart, hope to die, stick a needle in my eye. Lies will most likely be the only aspect of anything “suspicious” you find on April 1st, and I am sure many webmasters will have to sort it all out once it is over (not that I am guilty of making any April Fools jokes once or twice in the past, but seriously, it’s old now). For now, PokeBeach will focus on the site plans I posted the other day. Our main objective is to finish the scans and the Modified Card-Dex between this weekend and the beginning of next week. Once those are done, we will move on to other items on the agenda. Let’s hope that I can actually finish most of the site projects I promised this time! Unless I am bombarded with a project every night for the remaining two weeks, I should be able to get a few things done around here!

    …or “did,” now… x2. Details later.

    Togepi by Ken SugimoriThe suspense is building… One more day until the university I want to go tells me if I have been accepted or rejected. How appropriate is it that I will find out on the LAST day possible (probably the last hour, too)? I always seem to have such bad luck with everything. :p Even though there is nothing I can do now to change the past, I am still doing every good-luck ritual I can think of, even though there is no doubt it means anything.

    Listen up, kids! You better do well in high school and you better not slack off! Even though it is four years long, those four years could determine whether you will go to a college that makes your life easy or easier. This website officially opened the summer before my freshman year, and now I am a senior waiting to receive his acceptance or rejection to his number one college choice. If I tried just minutely harder on a couple of items in high school, I probably would have easily been admitted to the places I wanted to go, but I threw some opportunities out the window and ruined my grades a few times during a few semesters (Math, Spanish – grrr). If you do not ever want to go through the stress I am going through right now, work hard in high school, and set into motion habits that will improve your education (studying, doing homework at certain times of the day, completing homework a day ahead, etc.). Also, have fun while doing it – my fun is / was Pokemon throughout high school, and it was a retreat from the chaos of school. I sacrificed any possible social life for this website and school, but whatever – I enjoyed doing it, and it helped me to survive high school (actually, I choose not to have a large social life because most people I know lack morals, and I only like to have a couple of “good” friends rather than 3,000 – saves a lot of drama :p). If tomorrow I get in to where I want to go, I will be overjoyed, but if not, I will live. If you want to go to a certain college, do not procrastinate, slack off, or ever not try your hardest (I know this is a little cliché, but it is the truth). Do your best, and always remember that you will make it through all of it eventually, even if you fail at certain points (unless a comet smashes into Earth and everyone dies).

    I am off to bed! My future arrives in my inbox tomorrow! :D I will hopefully have an update for POKEMON (and not me :D) tomorrow or Sunday. This website is starting to feel like a blog… We’ll see how things turn out…

    This is just an “I’m alive” message. The amount of schoolwork I have received this week has been monumental – every week I find myself saying, “This has been the hardest week ever!” only to find myself saying the same exact phrase the following week. Unfortunately, it will not become any easier, with AP/IB testing coming up soon (and I know some of you have to take your AP tests as well, so you better study during Easter/Spring Break!). Right now, I am waiting to see if I was admitted to my first college choice, and it is extremely nerve racking. There are only two more days until they stop sending out acceptance letters, and they have been doing it for a whole month, so this is not so much of a “good” sign. We’ll just have to see… If I am admitted to that college, it will only mean great things for me and this website, but if not, then I guess, “Life will go on.”

    Another quick update (well, not really)!


    Site Plans – Over the past two or three weeks, myself and my mods (of the forum) have been talking about how we are going to improve PokeBeach between now and the end of the summer (we have been tossing around ideas back and forth). Our first step in the plan is to fix what I have broken (and no, I don’t mean laptops). Our Strategist program has died because I have not posted any articles that the Strategists have painstakingly written, and there must be at least a dozen articles by now in line. The simple truth is I have not posted them because I do not have the time to HTMLize them and edit them anymore. So, what could we do to fix this? Simple! If you feel you have HTML capabilities, and are at least proficient with spelling and grammar (hopefully you are AWESOME at it!), we want you to help us out! Right now, we are looking for a person to permanently hold the position of “Head Strategist” at PokeBeach, which means that the person will not only HTMLize articles they receive (which is boring), but you will be in charge of the entire Strategist program (which is fun because you get to slash your whip at everyone and do stuff). So, if you feel you know your HTML, spelling, grammar, and can handle a huge program and everyone in it, send an e-mail to wpm@pokebeach.com, with the subject line “Head Strategist,” and explain what you can do and anything else you want to brag about. Note that you also must have many RECENT (as in, the past 2 years) accomplishments in the Pokemon TCG, and we don’t mean winning pre-releases. :p

    Another thing we want to do is finish off the scans here. As you all know, we have probably 95% of all Pokemon TCG scans in existence, but we still are missing a few, especially with promos (although we do have a lot of those – they are just not up yet). Shakespeare, our master card scanner, has posted here what we need to be scanned, so if you want to help out, just follow his instructions and you will be credited if your scans are used (remember, they have to be EXCELLENT quality, which means don’t use that $50 scanner you have if you are going to take the time to scan some of these :p). If you are to scan anything, make sure you post in the thread above so that multiple people are not scanning the same thing.

    With us looking at what we are going to improve, I have enlisted the help of Meowth346 to actually re-code our entire Card-dex. I spent several hours on Sunday with him, basically describing to him what it should do, and he has already produced a beta version for me. It’s not finished yet, but it will be by the end of this week, so look forward to a much better Modified Card-dex (hopefully by Saturday)! Other features for PokeBeach will be coming soon as well!

    Also, if you feel the need to comment on any of the above, or even to make a PokeBeach suggestion, feel free to drop by this thread!

    EDIT: Podcast is canceled now due to reasons beyond our control. We may try to do it again tomorrow.


    Okayyyyyyy… The podcast took too long to record! We kept laughing, my brother came into the room, I couldn’t stop laughing, we thought we were saying boring things and kept starting over… all-in-all, we did 12 re-takes. Since it took too long, we decided we’ll just start over tomorrow around 6 PM, PST. If I have time, I’ll make a blooper reel, but I doubt I’ll have time this weekend. So, be in the chat room tomorrow around 5:30 if you want to be in the podcast. At the most, recording will take an hour, but at least you know we will not pump out a boring podcast that will make you fall asleep! Wait until you hear the reel… I almost wet my pants laughing so hard.

    Podcast tonight!


    Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea – I will update this news story as people report to me! This is absolutely amazing. The movie is airing on the east coast right now on Cartoon Network, and it is in wide screen. Not only that, but the movie keeps its Japanese company logo (the Toho logo) in the beginning, something never done before by 4Kids. The music in the movie has also been kept intact, which has been the case since Pokemon 4Ever. As of this posting, the dub is almost an exact translation of the Japanese version as well. I will add more to this later if there is anything else to say. Thanks to homeofmew for the above information, which she is feeding to me over AIM as she watches it! Remember, we will have our podcast tonight around 9:30ish PST, and we will be discussing this movie, so if you want to be a call-in guest, read the news stories below for details!

    Sorry for not updating yesterday! My eye was bugging me all day, and my teachers told me to go home because they thought I had pink eye (my left eye was bloody red). It was hard to use the computer because the light coming from the LCD was irritating my eye, so I had to basically sit in darkness the entire day. I went to the eye doctor today, and it turned out that I instead had inflammation of the eye, so they gave me medicine drops. Now I can update again without there feeling like there is an invisible person sticking a knife in my eye! :D


    Diamond and Pearl Tin Card Scans – Thanks to Kes, we now have scans of the three starters cards you receive when purchasing the $12.99 D/P tins available in stores right now (such as at Target). Comparing the scans to the D/P card images posted the other day, the format appears to be the same (even the awkward font and positioning of the Pokemon names). Click each scan below for larger images. Note that the cards are not actually promos, but holographic “pre-reprints” of the starter cards that will come in the actual Diamond and Pearl set next month.

    ManaphyManaphy Music – To make up for yesterday, and as a little bonus, I have posted three songs from Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea below for all of you to download today. Since I cannot translate the names of the songs (I no read Japanese), I will simply describe when they play in the movie. The first song plays when Ash and crew are traveling on a boat to Akusha, the place Manaphy must return to (the name of the place may change in the English version tomorrow). The second song plays when the evil pirate, Phantom, finds his way into the main room of Akusha and decides to take more than he needs of certain items that you will see tomorrow. The third song plays at the end of the movie when May and Manaphy leave each other. Right click each song and save them to your computer to enjoy! Remember, the movie airs tomorrow at 7:00 PM on Cartoon Network, so be sure to watch it, even if you do not like the Anime or have not watched it in a long time (it is a good way of supporting Pokemon in general)!

    [Song #1] – 8 MBs
    [Song #2] – 4.73 MBs
    [Song #3] – 4.46 MBs
    (Right click, save the link, and open it in a program that plays MP3s, such as Windows Media Player or iTunes.)


    Podcast Recording Tomorrow – As it has been said all week, PokeBeach will be recording episode 1 of the podcast tomorrow. If you want to be a call-in guest, you must be in the PokeBeach chatroom between 8:30 and 9:00 PM, PST (California time). Only those who show up and have everything set up first will get to talk on the podcast (it will be first come, first serve, and very few people will get to be a call-in guest this time). The topics of discussion tomorrow will be the Manaphy movie and the current metagame of the Pokemon TCG.

    *switches modes* Studio Ghibli’s next film will be called Ponyo On A Cliff, and will feature a five year old boy named Sosuke, modeled after Miyazaki’s son, Goro, and a princess goldfish named Ponyo, who wants to become human. This will be Miyazaki’s eighth major motion picture film (the seven before being Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Castle in the Sky: Laputa, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and Howl’s Moving Castle), and will be released during the summer of 2008, around the same time as the 11th Pokemon movie. The movie’s animation style will be unlike that of any of the previous films, making use of watercolors and pastels, instead of regular paint or computer coloring. It will also take place primarily in the OCEAN! If I had not become a Pokemon webmaster, I would have started a Miyazaki / Studio Ghibli website, but nooo, you punks kept me in business. :p (If you have no idea what I am even talking about, just ignore this and watch Spirited Away when it is on Cartoon Network sometime this month – you will be converted into a fan of Studio Ghibli / Miyazaki films). Oh yeah, this is a Pokemon website, isn’t it?


    ManaphyManaphy Movie – Speaking of the ocean, since Pokemon Ranger and the Prince of the Sea is airing this Friday at 7 PM on Cartoon Network, a little promotion is in order. As with the Lucario movie, I will put up a few pieces of background music from the movie for all of you to download each day until the movie airs. The background music featured below is from when the family featured in the movie performs their in-the-air water show on land. How will they accomplish this? Wait until the movie airs on Friday to find out! Remember, immediately after the movie airs on the west coast (PST, around 9:00 or 9:30 PM), we will begin to record PokeBeach’s podcast, so if you are interested in being a call-in guest, read yesterday’s news story!

    Next Pokemon Game? – I was reluctant to post this news story earlier this morning due to the lack of solid sources behind it, but now IGN has posted that Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2 may be the next Pokemon game released, as hinted in the latest issue of Famitsu magazine. CoroCoro is supposed to be revealing a new game in next month’s issue of its magazine, so this may very will be the same game. We should be finding out within the next month or so what the next Pokemon game will be, so stay tuned!

    We ended up buying the laptop I linked to in the previous update. It should arrive tomorrow. Expect English D/P TCG news on Monday.


    Next Japanese Set – The next Japanese TCG set, which does not have a known name yet, will feature Darkrai, Dialga, and Palkia, promoting the 10th Pokemon movie. The theme decks of the set will each feature Dialga and Palkia as well. The set will be released on July 5th (four months after Mystery of the Lakes), meaning that either (a) sets are going to be released in 4-month intervals from now on instead of 3-month intervals, which accounts for the larger D/P set sizes (more cards in a set, more time between set releases), or (b) they pushed only this set back a little to be around the 10th Pokemon movie’s theatrical release, since if they followed the 3-month pattern, the set would have been released in June, which is too early to promote the movie. Thanks goes to nimonosandesu for the exclusive news!


    First English Pokemon Video Ever – If you frequent any Pokemon forums, you may have already seen the below two videos posted during this past week, but if not, now is your chance! The videos below (split into two parts, but accounting for one video) is a VHS that 4Kids sent out before Pokemon aired in America to promote Pokemon (my younger brother, who discovered Pokemon before me, claims to have seen it before, but I guess I was too caught up in electricity stuff when I was little to ever watch it or care). The video presents a cast of humans who claim to be aunts, friends, cousins, and teachers of the Anime characters we all know, promoting Pokemon, mispronouncing both the names of the brand and some of the Pokemon (it also has [beta names] for several Pokemon, with the complete list of all R/B names here), and providing an embarrassing video that any fan is bound to cringe at! The second the video changes to “Aunt Hillary” is bound to make your stomach drop, especially with the way she pronounces “Pokemon” and puts down her glasses. Giovanni promoting Pokemon products also almost made me break THIS computer from my wild laughter. :p

    EDIT #1: The rest of the D/P English names have been revealed. You can view the names here.


    Extremely long story extremely short and abridged – I have to buy a new laptop because they will not fix my old one (And I am buying it TODAY so that I do not have to wait any longer, since I need it so bad for school that I am now reduced to bringing my first, in-five-pieces-laptop, to class on a regular basis. However, I re-broke it permanently last night by flinging it off the bed in my sleep and crushing its LCD and damaging the hard drive so that it will not load, so I have no laptop period). I was thinking about this one, but am willing to see if anyone else has any other ideas or finds some great laptop that is even better. The feature I like about this laptop is that, “Protect your data: LifeSmart Technologyâ„¢ provides advanced protective features like an ultra-strong chassis, shock-absorbing (flinging it off the bed in your sleep) hard drive, air-pocket cushioning and a spill-resistant keyboard (spilling two cups of water on it) that protects your data when mishaps happen.” Please post in this thread for your opinions. :)


    Four New Names – Gracias a Pokexperto, nosotros ahora tienamos (?) cuatro nueve llamos de D/P Pokemon.

    [Images No Longer Available]
    Magnezone / Togekiss / Bastiodon / Gastrodon


    RUMORED NAMES – Someone names Secret Squirrel came into our chat room the other night and posted a list of English Pokemon names. At the time, we thought the names were made-up, but several of them have turned out to be true, which is why this list could be real (or at least some of the names). The list he posted can be seen below. Remember, this is UNCONFIRMED.

    Aipom’s evolution is Ambipom
    Rhydon’s evolution is Rhyperior
    Magneton’s evo is Magnezone
