New 5th generation Pokemon character Victini for your Nintendo DS

By Masa Nakamura

It was just announced on the Japanese Pokemon Sunday TV show that there will be a new Pokemon character. It’s name is Victini. This can be pronounced “bikutini”, “vikutini” or “victini”, depending on how you translate it. This very cute little critter looks like a little tan and orange mouse, but has big eyes and ears and has kind of a wild look to it. He or she is also giving the victory sign which is where its name Victini comes from. Victini is one of the new Legendary Pokemon characters. It is a phantom Pokemon which is similar to Mew, Jirachi, Manaphy, Celebi & Shaymin. It is listed as #000 in the Isshu Dex. It is not in the upcoming Pokemon Nintendo DS Black and White games that will hit the shelfs on September 18, 2010, but can be downloaded separately.

Pokemon Shiny Legendary Beast Pokedolls Lottery Prize

By Brian Grabow

The ultimate prize has come to the Pokemon Centers in Japan. Shiny versions (alternate colors) of Suicune, Entei and Raikou plush Pokedolls. These three legendary beast Pokemon plushies are absolutely gorgeous. They are different color versions from the original Pokedolls. Suicune has a light blue main instead of purple, Entei is brownish color instead of red and Raikou is orange in color with a yellow mane instead of yellow with a purple mane. They have a different color shiny tag and are absolutely gorgeous.

Now the bad news. These three beautiful plush toys are not for sale. They are the top prize in the 2010 Pokemon Center lottery. There are 400 colored marbles that are in a bingo-stlye machine. When you spend 2500 yen (about $30) at the Pokemon Center from now until mid-July, you will receive one chance to win them. The top prize is one set of all 3 legendary beast Pokemon pokedolls. The lottery consists of 4 different color marbles. White, yellow, red and blue Red is the top prize for the set of 3 pokedolls and there is only 1 red marble out of 400. So your odds of winning are 1 in 400. The blue marble is the second place and allows you to choose 1 of the 3 Pokedolls. Not sure how many, but I think less than 5 out of 400. The 3rd prize is the yellow marble and it gets you a set of shiny (alternate color) legendary beast charms.

Game Hackers:Preventing The Spread Of Fake Pokemon

Written by Leonie Herson

As games become more advanced due to developments in technology, so too has the ability to hack into them. This can have serious side-effects for players of the Pokemon game franchise.

Devices such as Action Replay are able to trigger events, create areas and high level or rare Pokemon not usually accessible by normal gaming means. Why this has become such a difficult issue is due to people trading and selling illegitimate Pokemon. For an unsuspecting gamer, suddenly finding the means to obtain rare Pokemon would seem like a dream come true. As many would probably say, this way of receiving Pokemon should not be trusted. Receiving a hacked Pokemon may cause implications not only during Wifi battles, but to the whole game itself.
