Pokemon 11th Movie Trailer: Giratina and the Sky’s Bouquet

Posted by Neko Kyou in Coming Soon on April 25th, 2008

Looks like the next Pokemon movie is going to be released pretty soon, this time featuring Regigigas, Giratina and Shaymin. Not to mention looks like Dialga would be making a re-appearance as well.

I don’t really care what others say about Pokemon, I still like it. Sure, the plot is recycled every other episode and is very inconsistent, but the movies have always been pretty good – with a few exceptions.

The trailer looks quite impressive:

The last movie was quite good, so I’m looking forward to this as well. Gi gas gi gas!

Pokemon 11th Movie Trailer – Regigigas

Posted by Neko Kyou in Pokemon on October 10th, 2007

If you remembered a couple of months back I posted that the 11th Pokemon movie trailer was shown at the end of the 10th Pokemon movie, Dialga vs Palkia vs Darkrai.

Now a 20 seconds trailer has been released to the public and for those who had already seen the magazine scan of one giant Regigigas hand, you will find that scene here in this very trailer.

2 More Days to Dialga VS Palkia VS Darkrai

Posted by Neko Kyou in Pokemon on July 12th, 2007

Ahh.. Just 2 more days to the release of the 10th Pokemon Movie: Dialga VS Palkia VS Darkrai in Japan and those who are attending the event would be able to unlock the Darkrai event on their Pokemon Diamond & Pearl games on Nintendo DS. I want to go so badly, not only to watch the movie, but to grab a Darkrai as well :(

Speaking of Pokemon, I came across a thread at the Pokemon Community forum discussing about whether or not it is childish to watch the series and how others would make fun of those who are still watching the show. I posted my thoughts in a nutshell in reply to that, and thought it would make a great topic in general for my blog as well. However, it’s getting quite late and I’m on the verge of falling flat on my keyboard so I’ll keep it for tomorrow’s post instead :)

Weekly Review #1 – Pokemon, Kenichi, Nana

Posted by Neko Kyou in Weekly Review on June 24th, 2007

Anime’s I’ve watched this week:

Pokemon Diamond & Pearl Episode 6 – 10

History’s Strongest Disciple Kenichi Episode 28

Nana Episode 42 – 43

There are possible (minor) spoilers if you haven’t watched it yourself already so read at your own risk!

Pokemon Diamond & Pearl

Episode 6: Forest of Hesitation! Shinji Again! (Different Strokes for Different Blokes)

Rating: 6/10

Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Episode 6

The part where Satoshi and Naetle (Turtwig) were in the Forest of Hesitation and getting chased by a group of Odoshishi (Stantler) were quite entertaining, however having Satoshi lose to Shinji left a bad taste in my mouth.

Episode 7: Try your best, Pochama! (Like It or Lup It)

Rating: 6/10

Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Episode 7

This is the first time I’ve watched Diamond and Pearl in dub, and I have to admit that although I actually liked the dub for Pokemon before, the new voice actors for Ash and Brock kinda puts me off. I wonder why did they change voice actors after so many years. Satoshi/Ash could have done much better instead of just staying still and watching Pochama (Piplup) attempting to peck Team Rocket’s Magikarp sub to death.

Episode 8: Gereggru of the Mysterious Gym! (Gymbaliar!)

Rating: 7/10

Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Episode 8

We got to see Hassam (Scizor), Gereggru (Croagunk), Dokucale (Dustox) in battle along with Pikachu and Aipom, what’s there not to like? 😀 Kojiro (James) was funny as the obviously biased referee as well.

Episode 9: Let’s Play with Mimirol! (Setting the World on its Buneary)

Rating: 7/10

Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Episode 9

Someones got a crush on Pikachu, and Team Rocket is out to make use of that fact to get their hands on Pikachu. I never knew Mimirol (Buneary) could use Ice attacks… *hurries off to train Buneary in Pearl*

Episode 10: Poketch Unavailable! (Not on MY Watch Ya Don’t!)

Rating 8/10

Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Episode 10

Let’s see, I’ve always wanted a Poketch for myself too :( Kolink (Shinx) made an appearance as the Pokemon of the son of the Poketch Company’s President. It would have been nice to see it battle, but all it really did was charge up Pikachu to blast of Team Rocket. Go Koduck/Psyduck! 😀

History’s Strongest Disciple Kenichi
Episode: 28

Rating: 7/10

History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi 28

Nijima announced the 3 generals of the Shinpaku alliance, and soon after that a fight broke out between the Shinpaku alliance’s generals and Ragnarok’s 4th Fist, Loki, and his men. Kenichi demonstrated many moves in battle and quickly went against Loki, leaving the other 2 generals to take care of the grunts. The final twist in the end was quite hilarious, proving once again that Nijima definitely has a talent at running away.


Episode: 42

Rating: 6/10

Blast seems to be doing well with their recording at Gaia’s training camp and both Blast and Trapnest are already back in Tokyo before the end of the episode. Nothing that’s really worth mentioning, except at the end where Nana went into hyperventilation.

Episode: 43

Rating: 8/10

What made this episode cool is how Nobu seems to have found a new friend in Gaia’s hidden dormitory, who happens to suffer hyperventilation as well. Blast then continues to rock up a storm in front of Shinjuku Station with Hachi watching from afar. And it would seem that Nana has finally made up her mind about her relationship with Ren and Yasu just as the episode comes to an end. Just 4 more to go 😀

Pokemon Diamond and Pearl (Season 10)

Posted by Neko Kyou in Pokemon on June 21st, 2007

Pokemon was one of the very first anime that I started to watch about 10 years ago. It wasn’t aired on the local TV channel at the time so I had to rely on buying VCDs to watch it. It easily became my favourite at that time (and still is one of my fav now) but somewhere during Johto I stopped watching for reasons I can no longer remember, although I was still playing the many different Pokemon games on the GameBoy.

When I finally got my broadband, there were already hundreds of Pokemon episodes which I’ve missed and that discouraged me from watching them again. However, when I recently bought my Nintendo DS and Pokemon Pearl after being influenced by Dyna-Storm, I once again fell in love with the game. That’s when I started to watch the 10th season of the anime, Pokemon Diamond and Pearl.

Pokemon Pearl and Diamond (Season 10)

*Possible Spoiler Warning*

Although I’ve missed out a lot of the seasons, I’ve always kept myself up to date on the story development from visiting forums and watching all the movies that came out. Pokemon Diamond and Pearl has been good so far but I am pretty disappointed with Ash’s development. It’s true that he started his journey in Sinnoh with just Pikachu and leaving his other pokemon behind (again), but he should already have enough experience as a trainer to not lose to a new trainer, especially one as stuck up and arrogant as his new Sinnoh rival, Paul (Shinji in the Japanese version). It was especially disappointing to see Pikachu, despite being the most experienced of Ash’s pokemon and has fought other stronger pokemon, to be just on par with Paul’s Elekid.

*Spoiler Warning Ends*

However, so far it’s still a great anime and Diamond and Pearl is still tops in my book. I especially can’t wait for the release of the new movie – Dialga VS Palkia VS Darkrai which would be released in Japanese theater on July 14 this year.
