Pokemon D-Arts Charizard, Mewtwo & Blastoise Figures

There is a new type of figure that was just released in Japan that is extremely popular. Its called a D-Arts figure. The figures are made by Bandai corporation. These figures are incredible. They are the most life-like Pokemon moveable figures that have been made. They have jointed limbs, so they can be posed in many different ways.Mewtwo

Mewtwo-  The first figure made was the Mewtwo D-Arts figure made. Its about 4.25″ or 11cm tall. This figure was released in April, 2013. It was only sold in Japan. Mewtwo has moveable jointed legs, arms and tail. Even its fingers have moveable joints. It can be posed in several different standing poses as well as a flying pose.  It also comes with a blue Aura sphere that Mewtwo can hold to make more poses. Mewtwo also comes with a clear Pokeball shaped stand. For a very limited time since this was the very first D-Arts figure made, Mewtwo comes with a small Mew figure. Its about 1″ or 2.5cm tall. The Mew figure is not poseable, but very cute. Mew will only be included in the first edition production of the Mewtwo, so only for a very limited time.

Charizard- This figure is scheduled for release on April, 20, 2013 in Japan. It has poseable legs, arms, neck, wings and tail. Even its mouth can open and close. It can be posed in the classic position with it breathing fire into the air, hiding its head under its wings, flying position and more. It comes with a fireball that can be attached to make really cool fire-breathing poses as well. I will have more information after Charizard is released.

CharizardBlastoise- This figure is scheduled for release on June 30, 2013. This figure doesnt seem to be able to do as many poses as the Mewtwo and the Charizard figures, obviously due to the fact that it has small arms and legs. But as far as I can tell, the legs, arms, and neck move. As well as the 2 cannons have missles that can be attached to make it look like Blastoise is shooting.

So far only Mewtwo, Charizard and Blastoise have been scheduled for release in Japan, but Im assuming that based on how popular that these figures are, there will surely be more figures in the future.

Where can I buy one of these figures?

There are several places to buy the D-Arts figures. Ebay is one place, but I definitely do not recommend it. Unfortunately there are many fake or bootlegs D-Arts figures all over Ebay. I checked and I saw many more fake ones than real ones. The ones for sale from Hong Kong and China sellers on Ebay seem to be a reasonable price ranging from $30-50. But don’t be fooled. These are fake or bootlegs. These figures were only sold in Japan, not Hong Kong and China (although they are of course made in China). $30 is far below what the figures actually cost in the stores in Japan, so its easy to tell these are bootlegs.Blastoise

An authentic one will run you about $70-80 or so. It is always safest to buy from a Japanese seller, whether you buy it on Ebay or from an online shop. You can buy authentic ones on Pokevault as well as thousands more different authentic Pokemon merchandise including cards, deck boxes, sleeves, dice, figures, Pokedolls, plush toys and much more.

Pokemon Time Campaign #4 Goods Have Arrived

Finally there are some new Pokemon Time goods at the Pokemon Centers in Japan. Its been quite a while since the last round of Pokemon Time goods was sold. This time its from the 4th campaign. There are 10 characters this time and I must say that I like the characters this time around. Charizard, Bulbasaur, Venusaur, Dragonair, Oddish, Growlithe,  Psyduck, Magikarp, Gengar and Poliwag.

There was 10 different phone straps made, one of each of the 10 characters. In addition there was also all 10 characters made into clear file folders. Oddish, Poliwag, Charizard and Growlithe were the only characters to be made into square-shaped spiral notebooks. These are very cool and seem to be very popular.

There was also 3 different character pens that came in plastic tubes. Each of the pens features 4 Pokemon Time characters. A day planner/calendar for 2013 that features all the different characters with a monthly calendar, memo pages and yearly calendar is very nice.

Probably the best items in the campaign are the Growlithe deck sleeves and the deck box with all 10 characters. Anyone who plays the Pokemon TCG will love these items. The sold out extremely fast at the Pokemon Centers.

This campaign was timed for the start of school, so it seems to be focused mainly on school supplies. The last campaign had earphones, computer mouses, mousepads and more recreational items. But I really like the characters this time around.

Of course you can always find these products available while they last at Pokevault.com. Hopefully they will add some more items to this campaign, but for now that is all the items that have been released. Im really looking forward to the next Pokemon Time campaign. Stay tuned.

Fighting Type Pokemon (Video Games)

By Anonymous

Such a huge world in Pokemon. All of these types must add up in a way, of course. What is your favorite Pokemon? Well, that is a common question given among Pokemon trainers to one another. But types, what is your favorite type? Do you have any certain Pokemon in mind with any types at all? Well, this type is not my favorite of course, but it is my article’s topic. This type would be the fighting type. Now when you combine all of the Pokemon together, there will be a fraction for each type, most of this fraction would be equal for the reason of as of yet, I think there is no majority typing when it comes to Pokemon. But one of those fractions would be the fighting type Pokemon. This is just a neat type in general. Fighting type Pokemon have some neat trades. Some fighting type Pokemon, well, not just some, not just some at all. But almost all fighting type Pokemon tend to be the most human-like Pokemon out of every type. It is just a pretty cool fact for you there.

Fighting type Pokemon have advantages over several Pokemon, the most notable would have to be the normal type Pokemon. A normal type Pokemon’s moves will have neutral damage on a fighting type Pokemon, though a move from a fighting type Pokemon will be super effective against the normal type Pokemon, quite literally actually. For the most part, fighting Pokemon tend to be pretty single typed, that type being fighting of course. There still is a decent sized number of Pokemon that happen to be in the dual type, one of the sharing types being fighting. The most common you would find out of these is the fighting type Pokemon and the fire type Pokemon.

For the past three generations the fire type starter Pokemon has evolved into a fighting type Pokemon dual type with fire type Pokemon. Now for advantages, well, weakness with fighting type Pokemon, counters if you will. The one type of Pokemon that can have a super effective hit on the fighting type Pokemon would the flying type Pokemon. Now, not just a flying type Pokemon, but also any flying type Pokemon move. The type of the Pokemon doesn’t matter as much as the move. Another note, fighting type Pokemon attacks have no effect on ghost type Pokemon, much like normal type attacks. Unless you have your Pokemon use the attack Foresight. The first fighting type Pokemon was most likely Machop in the Kanto region. Machop has no dual types, its final evolution would be Machamp which is still a fighting type Pokemon. Who is your favorite fighting type Pokemon?

Fire Type Pokemon (Video Games)

Ah yes, the mighty Charizard. A favorite among some of the oldest trainers of Pokemon. I would agree with them. In this world of Pokemon there is a ton of Pokemon, yeah we all heard that before of course. But there are also at least a small handful of types out there. Just about seventeen or so. As stated above, Charizard, a fire type Pokemon and a flying type Pokemon, is of course part fire! This article will go over a few details about the fire type in the Pokemon universe. Fire type Pokemon are among some of the strongest you will encounter, but all Pokemon are pretty close in strength if paired with their own tiers. The main weaknesses to the fire type Pokemon are water types, of course. But there are also ground types and rock types.

Spell Of The Unown Movie Synopsis

By TokoyamiTheDark

Molly lives in Greenfield: a very nice small town. Herfather, a wealthy archaeologist tells her an old legend about the twenty-six Unown and Entei : Psychic Pokemon found in several forms: the letters of the alphabet, and a Legendary Pokemon that races along the lands. At that time, an email informs that Molly’s father has to go immediately on the archaeological excavations for a astonishing discovery was made.

Indeed, not far from Greenfield: they find a kind of puzzle, a riddle of Unowns … Molly’s father begins to inspect the puzzle, but by moving the game pieces he finds himself lost in another dimension, full of Unowns!!! A fellow archaeologist brings the bad news to Molly, and leaves the house …

Molly, saddened that she lost not only her father, but her mother as well, falls on the ground and accidently discovers the Unown Puzzle that the man forgot earlier, and start moving the letters to form three words, ‘Papa, Mama, Me’.

Meanwhile, Ash meets a trainer: Lin, and they decide to do a Pokemon battle.

After a long battle full of challenges, Ash is finally victorious.

Lin praises the talents of Ash, and the two trainers continue their journey together. At sunset, they decide to go to Greenfield.

Molly has released the mechanisms of the puzzle, creating a link to the Unown dimension and her house … Unowns appears from nowhere, and she timidly asks if she can play with them. But their psychic powers get unleashed, and her house slowly begins to turn into crystal. Molly remember how her father was mimicking Entei, and she wanted him back so much, that a crystallised Entei magically appears. Molly believes it’s her father, reborn as an Entei, and asks it for a mother. Entei flees in search for a mother for Molly.

Nobody can understand this, and journalists arrive at Greenfield in a hurry, wondering what is the cause. Professor Oak is also invited along with Ash’s mother.

The gang, along with Lin comes at Greenfield, but everyone is surprised to see this strange, crystallised landscape …

Pokemon Attacks And Natures #2

By Harry Ackerman

Everywhere you see articles and charts etc, on what a Pokemon’s best nature would be, but what if your Pokemon doesn’t have that one specific nature then what are some other good natures for it? In article I’ll talk about other good natures, bad ones, and some really good moves (or at least in my opinion) for each Pokemon to have. 🙂

Just keep in mind this isn’t 100% accurate because the most beneficial nature for a Pokemon to have can be highly dependent on what moves you teach it.

This time I’ll talk about Serperior, Zoroark, Charizard, and Umbreon. 🙂

So first of all Serperior,

Serperior’s base Attack and base Special Attack are both equal, so it’s up to you which you base it’s attacks around, or you can use both stats if you want. Speed is Serperior’s best stat though so any Nature that is boosting speed is probably going to be good for it, unless it’s lowering the type of attack (physical or special) that your Serperior uses the most, then not so much.

Unfortunately Serperior doesn’t learn many cool moves while leveling up and has a terrible overall move set. They’re aren’t many awesome TM or HM attacks it can learn either. You could teach it Aerial Ace to get rid of the bug types that would try to take a bite out of Serperior, and of course you’re going to want to teach your Serperior Leaf Blade or Giga Drain (both it learns by leveling up). I taught mine both, which is always an option as well. 😉 Also if you can manage to teach Serperior Glare (which can only be taught by breeding) that’s an awesome move because it can even paralyze a ground type Pokemon since Glare is normal type.

If you can some how get a Serperior or one if it’s evolutions from the dream world that’s awesome too, because of the Pokemon’s dream world ability Contrary (hopefully there will be a special event soon to get one). Contrary makes moves that lower stats raise them instead, and vice-versa. In which case it would be very beneficial for your Serperior to have a Special Attack boosting nature, because with Contrary you have to teach your Serperior Leaf Storm (which is learned at level 62). Because with that ability each time you use Leaf Storm instead of it lowering your special attack like it normally would, it raises the stat instead. Just think how powerful that attack would get after a couple uses?

Next Zoroark,

Zoroark has very high Attack and Special Attack stats (higher Special Attack) but sadly very low defenses. I’d find it best for your Zoroark to have a neutral nature if it doesn’t have a nature recommended by something/someone. If a stat is boosted though, the best one would probably be Special Attack. As for the lowered stat you do not want it to be one of Zoroark’s defenses, and definitely not it’s physical defense (i made that mistake… 🙁 ).

As for attacks, despite Zoroark’s higher Special Attack it learns ALOT of physical moves while leveling up. In fact Zoroark doesn’t learn a special attack until level 64 when it learns Night Daze. But some good moves to teach it when leveling up are Foul Play, and Night Slash.

Just because Zoroark doesn’t learn a special attack until level 64 doesn’t mean having a Special Attack boosting nature wouldn’t be beneficial. Zoroark can learn a few awesome moves with TMs that a dark type couldn’t normally learn; one of them being Flamethrower.

Some other good TM moves to teach Zoroark are Shadow Ball, Aerial Ace, and if you want Focus Blast (or Low Sweep if you want a physical fighting attack). Aerial Ace works well to get rid of any annoying Fighting or Bug type that would try to hurt Zoroark, and then the variety of attack types coupled with Illusion can catch really your opponent off guard.

All About Pokemon Charizard

By Jack Snell

Charizard, the most iconic, formidable Pokemon in existence, rests in solitude in the scorching lava pit of Mt. Fire Blast. Rarely has it ever left the confines of the volcano. It is the epitome of power, crashes of its immense tail can destroy cities in one swipe, blusters of its fiery breath can consume all life in its path in literally seconds. For Charizard exudes an aura of rage, one of boundless energy, feeling that it can cremate, decimate and incinerate any foe which incurs its wrath.

When Charizard stamps one of its giant limbs a tremor is created which becomes a brutal earthquake, when Charizard cries, a drenching monsoon befalls the entire planet.

Then in a heartbeat, Charizard soars into the air, as graceful as a dragonfly, as agile as a leopard, swooping across the vast desert. Charizard glides effortlessly on the sun kissed air, every muscle and sinew in its body working in perfect harmony. The vivid sun rays beating down on its body cause its tail flame, its critical life source, to burn with even more intensity.

Then, as Charizard peered down to parouse the dusty dunes, it noticed fellow Pokemons behaviour that it had never seen before. Zigzagoons scurried into their burrows, cowering in fear at the mighty presence in the sky, Cacturnes tried to remain silent still, imitating a real life cactus, in hope that the colossal dragon wouldnt notice them. A single Tangela sat quivering, in the knowledge that one lick of flame would leave its body in cinders.

Charizard was overwhelmingly upset at the way fellow Pokemon reacted to his presence. Despite the powerful image and the dangerous heartless exterior, Charizard is a creature of real emotion like all of us, it no longer felt immortal, it felt vulnerable and alone

There was something deeper plaguing its mind, and Charizard realised it needed to inform the other Pokemon. At this time, it was on the verge of tears and desperately trying to hold back the emotional pain in fear that it could create a downpour which would put out its’ tail flame.

Charizard plummeted through the sky and hovered to a controlled stop, aside a small oasis. No other Pokemon were anywhere to be seen. Charizard sat alone, contemplating how he could ever resolve the rift between himself and other Pokemon. Finally, noticeably depressed at this point a tiny, very timid Vulpix approached him, inquisitive about what was upsetting him. Charizard explained that he means no harm, and has a tale to tell the Pokemon population of the area. Vulpix sceptically alerted all of the Pokemon inhabiting the desert and sure enough one by one, a crowd gathered around Charizard

All About Charmander

By Anonymous

Do you remember the original 150 Pokemon? Do you by any chance remember the starters? The Kanto region? Or even Professor Oak? To incorporate this all, or most of it. In the Kanto region, with the original 150 Pokemon, you can get your start from Professor Oak. The grass type Bulbasaur, or the water type Squirtle? The main one that will be talked about in this article is the fire type Pokemon you can receive from Professor Oak, Charmander. Now Charmander has a long history for many things. In the anime, way in the beginning, it says that Charmander will die if the flame on his tail were to go out. This is fairly interesting, is this for all fire type Pokemon with flame on a body part? I wonder, probably not, it was only mentioned with Charmander.

Charmander you should already know as a fire type Pokemon. The first two gyms in the Kanto region or hard if that is the place you choose for your journey. This is only if you choose Charmander though. Because the first two gyms in the Kanto region are a Rock type gym, the leader is Brock, it is hard for Charmander to beat him unless you bring some potions. The second gym is a bit easier though it is a water type gym, the leader is Misty. It will be sort of hard for a Charmander, The only reason for it to be sort of is that you might have a few other Pokemon at the time to help you out. Charmander is a fire type Pokemon, and is therefore weak to the Rock and Water type Pokemon. He can get more powerful by evolving into Charmeleon.

The Older Pokemon Vs. The New Pokemon

By

Hello Pokemon Fans! Today I would like to discuss generation one vs. generation five. Now in my opinion I think all Pokemon games are amazing I will admit that, but all the Pokemon…not so much. First let me say this in generation one the designs of the Pokemon were outstanding! Along with the naming and battle moves. For example I will use the three starter Pokemon: Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Charmander. Now I loved fire Pokemon (along with dragons) so I chose Charmander. Now Charmander to me was a pretty sweet Pokemon due to the fact that he was almost unstoppable unless against a water type. To me his best move as we progressed was flamethrower. Then he evolved into Charmeleon! Now I was not a fan of Charmeleon but I must say he was stronger and learned even better moves.

Anyways moving on, I thought that the detail was a little bit lazy since all they did was buff Charmander up, add a horn to his head, and rename him Charmeleon. In the end though I was happy for the last evolution was Charizard. Now I was very impressed for I thought he would look like a dinosaur (T-Rex), but no I was wrong he was transformed into an orange dragon with wings. Not only was he just a fire type now but a flying type now too! I must say he was very powerful to so I applaud Game Freak and Nintendo.
