Revised Rule List for Bloopers

If you find any bloopers from Winx Club (all seasons, movies, PNGs), Pokémon (all seasons, all series, all movies, Pokerap), or Bakugan (all seasons), please send in the following to imk1047@gmail.com :
  1. What the blooper is (e.g. “Dan’s hair is miscolored”)
  2. A picture of the blooper (see rules below)
  3. The season number and episode number or the movie title and number (“Season 3, Episode 12”, “Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea, movie nine”)
  4. If you took the blooper from another site or a comment on a site (e.g. YouTube, Blogger, WordPress), please give credit to the site/commenter. You will still be credited for sending the blooper to us. Note that this does not include pictures.
  5. The name you wish to be credited as (does not have to be your real name). You will be credited by your email username if you do not include this.
  6. Comments posted on this blog will not be accepted unless you meet the above criteria and provide a link to your site/blog that includes a picture of the blooper. If your blooper is hard to find on your website, please provide a link to both your site and and the picture.
  7. Please do not waste our time with pictures that are obviously not bloopers. Ian and I do have lives and we do not want to have to stare at a picture only to realize you were incorrect. 
Picture rules:
  • The picture must be high quality. Blurry pictures will be declined.
  • The picture may only have a channel watermark (e.g. 4Kids, Rai Due, TV Tokyo), no watermarks placed there by you or the site from which you got the picture (see the rule below). If the channel watermark partially covers or completely covers the blooper, the blooper will be sent back with a request for a new picture (you may either use a non-watermarked picture or you may change stations. For example, the 4Kids and the Cartoon Network Singapore logos are in different spots on the screen and thus would be good substitutes for each other.)
  • Taking pictures from other sites is forbidden. Giving credit is not an appropriate substitute for getting the image yourself. Only if you have proven permission from the Administrator are you allowed to take the picture.
  • The picture must not have subtitles, regardless of the show.
  • No writing may be on the picture. Please describe the blooper in your email.
  • Please do not include circles or arrows on the picture unless the blooper is hard to see.  
  • Most Winx Club PNGs are done by fans out of magazines and the like, and due to the unprofessional nature of this, most PNG mistakes (such as missing wings, lack of hair, a character being lighter/darker than usual) are simply errors made by fans. Many PNGs also feature slightly different outfits, hair styles, or the like. This is simply concept art and/or the animators having fun.
  •  If you absolutely must, the picture can be uploaded to a website as long as you can prove it is still yours. As this can be near impossible at points, we strongly encourage you to just send us the file.
If you do not follow the above rules or the submission guidelines, your blooper will be sent back with a request for the missing information.

Please do not continuously harass us for not posting your picture automatically. We here have lives and this blog is not the main focus of said lives.

If you currently have sent us bloopers that do not match the following criteria, please resend them to imk1047@gmail.com

Note from GCG: Due to some miscommunication, my folder of bloopers has been deleted. If you've submitted bloopers and they have not been posted, odds are they were deleted. Please re-submit them to Ian.

Pokemon Trivia Post!

- Wobbuffet is the only fully evolved Pokemon that can't learn any TMs

- A large chunk of the 3D Pokemon models in Battle Revolution were actually reused from previous games on both the N64 and Gamecube.

- FR/LG has an anti-cheat feature where hacking in Mew would cause it to not listen. This is not in any of the DS games, however. To elaborate, Mew ignores every order you give it, regardless of what badges you earned. Also, the same thing happens with a hacked Deoxys.

-In some early art for Venomoth, it was shown having yellow spots on the back of its wings. This was later removed.

- Raikou is the only legendary Pokemon Ash hasn't encountered in the anime or in one of the movies. (NOTE: Kind of. In the most recent Pokemon movie (the Zoroark movie), which hasn't been released out of Japan yet, Ash meets Zoroark, posing as Raikou. I'm still a little fuzzy on the storyline, so if I'm wrong, and I think I'm right, I'll come back and edit it when the movie comes out in English, or when I read a summary.)

- One of Parasect's Pokedex entries says its spores are used as medicine in China, which is a rare reference to the real world.

- Hippopotas and Hippowdon are currently the only Pokemon whose male and female sprites use completely different colors.

Ash's New Uniform for Isshu

I personally dislike this outfit. They even seemed to have changed his eyes. I don't have much to say here, but in case this video ever gets removed from YouTube, if a person reading this isn't able to look at the video, and for other reasons, here's a picture of Ash in his new uniform.

I hope I'll soften up to this new design soon, and I probably will, but for now I don't like it very much. I'm almost 100% sure I'll like it by tomorrow, but for now I don't. What do you all think about it? Comment! (Seriously, there's been a lack of comments lately.)

Monday, August 23, 2010


Here's a quote from serebii.net:

Nintendo has also issued a press release stating that Pokémon Black & White have already exceeded 1 million pre-orders making them the fastest selling DS games in history. They expect for the games to reach 1.5 million pre-orders before the game launches. This indicates that the franchise is running strong.

Wow, so Pokémon Black and White have even MORE hype than we thought they did! Amazing.

New Pokémon Yanappu!

I remember when the toy revealing this Pokémon came out, but I didn't post it because there was nothing backing up the toys at the time. What I mean by that is, there were no mentions of it on Pokémon Sunday, there was no mention of them by Nintendo, etc. Now, that video had information about the Pokémon in English, but here's the video of the scene on Pokémon Sunday when they revealed it.

See you all (well, not really) in the next post!

New Best Wishes Preview, and New Best Wishes Character!

In this video, they showed a new character, a new Nurse Joy design, and a new Officer Jenny design. Here are some pictures.

The New Character
The New Nurse Joy
The New Officer Jenny

(Sorry for the pokestation.net watermarks, the video was uploaded by a channel on YouTube that is owned by the admin of that website.) According to serebii.net (in reference to the new character),

This character is called Shooti (シューティ) and while travelling to take on the Isshu League, he also is a bit of a Pokémon Photographer and enjoys taking photographs of Pokémon. He has never been seen before.

What do you all think about the new character and the new Jenny and Joy designs? I like the new character, and think he'll be Ash's rival, but that's only speculation. I also like the new Joy design, but I think I'll need a while to soften up to Jenny's new design. Tell us what you guys think about them in the comments, and I'll see you in the next post!

Two New Pokemon!

In this video, two new Pokemon were released. They went by pretty quickly, so here are some pictures of them:

From left to right, there's a new pokemon (un named),
Chiramii/Chillarmy, and Tabunne.

From left to right, Tabunne, and
another un named new pokemon.
(Thank you Serebii.net's admin for
allowing me to use your picture)

The first one looks almost like a blue crab of some sort, while the other one looks like a crocodile or alligator. Be aware that these pictures were filmed in low quality, cut out of the original picture (while included the background of the screen, and other things), and the pictures are of the Pokemon Musical. I'll post again when these Pokemon are fully revealed.

Another Another Another Another CoroCoro Video

That video is an overview of most of the new features in Pokémon Black and White. It also talks about the meaning of "Shooter", something that seemed to replace bag in certain battles. It turns out that in Wireless and Wi-Fi battles, you can use the 'Miracle Shooter' to "shoot" items at your Pokémon so it can use them. See you in the next post!

Another Another Another CoroCoro Video

Once again, I recommend you watch this. It covers everything about the Internet being used in Pokémon Black and White, and also has one small bit of news. Through the Global Link, you can now download skins for your C-Gear and Pokédex! (And, in the Pokémon Musical post, I also mentioned that you can download songs for it on the Global Link, and this is said again in the video.)

Summary of Pokémon Musicals

This video only has one small piece of news in it (you can download songs to your DS for the Pokémon Musicals), but it does describe the whole meaning of Pokémon Musicals, and goes really into it, so I suggest you watch it. Well, that's all for this post!

New Pokémon Tabunne! "Plant" Pokémon is Fake!

First of all, this video also talks about the new Pokémon Basurao and Darumakka. But, it also talks about the new Pokémon Tabunne, and the fact that the Pokémon "Plant" is a fake. A few days ago, I made a post about a Pokémon named Plant. Click here to go to that post. It turns out, that Pokémon is fake. I'm really sorry I posted that, because I try VERY hard to post only true news, and I hope another mixup like that won't happen again. Now, for the new Pokémon.

I'm not really sure what to say about it, seeing that everything that I would say is stated in the video. I like this Pokémon, but it's not one of my favorites. What do you guys think about it? Tell us in the comments! So, see you in the next post!

(By the way, I'm not the one talking in the video)

Black & White Will Feature Only New Pokemon

From I4UNews -

If you're expecting to catch a Pikachu in the latest Pokemon game heading to the DS next year, you'll be out of luck because for the first time ever, only new Pokemon will be used in the new title.

Nintendo has introduced new Pokemon in every sequel to the "colored" Pokemon games, which date back to the original Game Boy. However, in every one, the new Pokemon were thrown in and mixed with some of the classic Pokemon as well. That won't be the case in Black and White.

In a blog entry at game developer GameFreak's website (Japanese), studio representative Junichi Masuda confirmed that people who play through Black and White will not see a single Pokemon that they've seen before.

Developers want to give players an experience similar to what they felt when they played through their very first Pokemon game, where everything was new and exciting.

Of course, at some point in the game players will have the ability to trade Pokemon between their Black/White game and their other Pokemon DS games, so every one of the nearly 500 Pokemon will still be programmed into the code, but more than half of them won't be actively put into the game.

This will most likely bring up a mixed reaction from gamers, especially those who have a particular attachment to some of the old-school monsters, but I personally think it's a great move on the part of GameFreak and it should really take away from the monotony that the series has suffered from for years.

Pokemon Black and White have not yet been assigned any specific release window in the US but should be available some time next year.

Another Another CoroCoro Video

These videos mostly just re-state what was already said, but some stuff is new. Like, the ability Sturdy has a new effect! In the previous generations, it stopped one hit KO moves from working. But, now, it works like the item focus sash! If any move would normally defeat you in one hit, you live with 1 HP remaining! I wonder why they changed that...

Another CoroCoro Video

This is just another video about this month's CoroCoro info, but more in depth, and I felt like posting it.

New Pokémon Basurao, and CoroCoro Scans!

(Credit to pokestation.net)

This is a picture of the Pokémon Basurao, revealed in the Pokémon Black and White game demos. It was in Cheren's team. Now, for the CoroCoro scans.

So, here's the new information we found: 

The Bug Pokémon that we found out about earlier is a Bug/Grass type, and is named Kirumiru.
The stork Pokémon that we found out about earlier is a Water/Flying type, and is named Swana.
In the games, the first gym leader is Dento, and he is in Sanyo City.
The second gym leader in the games is Aloe, and she is in Shippou City.
The player starts out in their hometown of Kanoko Town, and meet Team Plasma for the first time in Karakusa Town.
In a Rotation Battle, you can choose which Pokémon to attack each turn. However, you must be careful and predict what pokemon and move the opponent will use.
The Miracle Shooter allows you to use items in wireless battles. You collect points each turn and later on you can use them to get items, which can be helpful for you later in the battle.
The Battle Subway is where you can participate in seven battles at a time. When you win all seven battles, you earn battle points, and you can use those to get various items. It seems similar to the Battle Frontier and Battle Towers in Emerald, Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heart Gold, and Soul Silver.

A HUGE thanks to pokestation.net for this information!

Pokémon Sunday Silhouettes!

On the most recent Pokémon Sunday, three silhouettes were shown.

(Sorry about the IcyPlate caption on the bottom, that was the watermark put there by the YouTube user that uploaded it.)

Those silhouettes were of the previously revealed Gigaiasu, Mamanbou, and un-named bug Pokémon. I'll make another post about this next week, when the un-named bug Pokémon's name is shown. See you all in the next post!

 Gigaiasu in its spot on the silhouettes. (I made this picture)

New Pokémon! (Short Post)

I know that video has information that was stated in the last news post, but it also talks about a new Pokémon that is supposedly named "Plant". I thought it was one of the Pokémon that were shown in the fake CoroCoro scan, so I didn't talk about it here. But, it turns out, it's real. What do you guys think about it?



RoxyRox made a new website and invited me to post on it, but it's a new site so it's not getting that many visitors. Here's the link, it would be great if you checked it out!

New Pokemon Emonga and Darumakka!

I really love Emonga (the Flying Squirrel). What do you guys think? Also, CoroCoro scans have been revealed, but they were fake. I'm pretty sure that this information is real, but if it isn't, I'll probably find out in 24 hours and take this post down. Here's the info about the fake CoroCoro scans: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lwk1irJ0nSQ It's terrible that people can barely find a good resource of news anymore. *sigh* Well, see you all in the next post!

Winx Magical Adventure Movie Trailer (English)

I haven't been posting much Winx news lately, because of the Pokemon news overload, but I thought this was really important. The trailer is...ok. I don't really like it. I mean, it's alright, but it could be better. I got this from Una Di Noi, and I have to agree with the Oblivious Prattler (the owner of Una Di Noi). It could be better.

New Pictures and a New Pokemon!


In that video are new pictures of the game, and a new Pokemon which is un-named. What do you think about this Pokemon? I personally think it's going to be Isshu's Caterpie. Comment!

New Characters for Pokemon 'Best Wishes'


Iris is a wild-acting girl who likes to climb trees and chew berries. For some reason, she's traveling with her friend, the dragon type Pokémon Kibago.


With an abundance of knowledge and experience, Dento is a "Pokémon Sommelier", who diagnoses the compatibility between a trainer and their Pokémon, and gives them advice on how to become better friends. Is the actual condition what is expected?

Thank You Bulbanews.
