EDIT #1: Just got back from Worlds and it’s 1 in the morning. I am so tired, so I’ll post the pictures and other stuff tomorrow.
Hi everyone, I am updating from Worlds thanks to Mark D. Tomorrow I will also be able to update at Worlds thanks to a nice PUSA lady, Sarah. Forgive me if some of this news is already known – I haven’t had time to go through other websites.
Worlds 2007 Location – Worlds 2007 will be taking place at the Hilton Waikoloa Village in Kona, Hawaii next August.
New Pokemon Card Images – At the artist panel, there were three new Pokemon images from a future set. They were Smeargle, Ho-oh, and Lugia. I will post the images when I get home tonight.
Diamond and Pearl Marketing Begins in Two Weeks – Diamond and Pearl are being translated as we speak, and the time to translate the games is taking long, as with any Japanese game. The marketing for the games apparently begins in two weeks, although I am not positive if I heard correctly. Also, PUSA knows about the same Diamond and Pearl Pokemon as us, all the way up to the new starters.
Lucario and the Mystery of Mew was Delayed – The movie was originally supposed to come out last spring, but several factors causes the DVD release to be delayed. As we all know, it will be coming out in September. The Manaphy movie is going to be coming out in February.
Grinders Taking FOREVER – Because of two Shedinja vs. Shedinja matches (*coughthankswillhungcough:p*) at the end of the first two rounds extending way over time, the Grinders for 15+ has pushed the whole tournament behind schedule. Round 3 starts at 8:00 PM, which means we are going to be here for a whileeee.
Tropical Tidal Wave Promo – The people invited to Worlds each received a Mewtwo binder with different Tropical Tidal Wave cards. The text on the cards are exactly the same, but the picture is different and includes Munchlax now (off of my memory).
I have to go now, but I will update with more info and a ton of pictures later on tonight! Be sure to check back!
