The Distortion World

By Anonymous

A very lonely place in the Pokemon world. A mere mirror of the world. Nobody inhabits this place except for Giratina. Anything could happen in the Distortion World quite literally. In some cases, you’ll find yourself surfing on the ceiling. Or walking on the ceiling, or sideways! Who knows what could happen? Apparently the boss of Team Galactic had no idea that he can’t create his perfect world without another world to mirror it! Cyrus got sucked into the Distortion World by Giratina when he was summoning Palkia and Dialga at the Spear Pillar.

You fight Cyrus venturing in the depths of the Distortion World. Giratina thinks you to be worthy and challenges you to a battle. He is strong, you can fight him or capture him, whatever you prefer. In Giratina and the Sky Warrior, there is one person who inhabits the Distortion World. His name is Newton Graceland. He studies the Distortion World and knows how to use the lack of gravity to his advantage and teaches others how to do so. He was Zero’s mentor. Zero apparently became obsessed with Giratina’s powers and wishes to capture Giratina and use his powers to freely enter from the world to the Distortion World. Got a little off topic there. Poison clouds appear occasionally in the Distortion World. People think that this is some form of pollution.

When Dialga and Palkia collided, the Distortion World got polluted a lot, so Giratina wants to destroy Dialga for poisoning his world. Shaymin thinks Giratina wants to eat him or her, I don’t know Shaymin’s gender. Seeing that Giratina always picked Shaymin up in his mouth, it is something you would think. And plus Shaymin is a small, cute, grassy hedgehog while Giratina is a big dragon with a ton of powers that can suck people into the Distortion World when angered. Giratina is strong, thats why Zero became obsesses with those powers. Giratina is the third member of the creation trio who controls antimatter and rules the Distortion World. The Distortion World is a great place, well, not really, or is it? I personally think its very unique! What about you?

Fourth Generation Shiny Pokemon Review

By Emily

Following in the footsteps of a previous generation of many good and unique shiny Pokemon, the fourth generation hit quite a few flat notes. No Pokemon from the Sinnoh region was graced with a shiny event distribution, and for quite a number of monsters the color change is barely a few shades different. However, like with every generation, some do stand out and are very popular for one reason or another. Starting with legendaries, both Giratina and Cresselia have very unusual shiny colorations, and are two of my personal favorites. Continue reading “Fourth Generation Shiny Pokemon Review”

Traveling Companion

By Pheonixxfoxx

Pokedolls are all the rage, but I never really understood why! Well, not until I got my Giratina Origin Form Pokedoll, whom I named Pickles, almost 2 years ago! Pickles came from Nintendo World in New York, a fellow Pokemon collector decided to do a Pokedoll run, to help fellow collectors get their hands on those long sought after Pokedolls. For some reason, I was compelled to have my name added to the list for both a Giratina Origin Form and Shadow Lugia Pokedoll, though I did not really collect either Pokemon. Sadly, Shadow Lugia was out of stock, but I still gladly paid for Giratina Origin Form.

The Hunt For Pokemon Merchandise

By Sam Clements (Almiraswolf)

I started collecting Pokemon items in 1999 when it first started to
hit the UK and become a craze. Despite the popularity, merchandise
levels started to fall within less than 3 years and it became harder
and harder to find items. The Pokemon games released every few years
would kick start the craze again but the UK never got as wide a
variety of merchandise as Japan.

When I started doing more shopping online, I began to find a variety
of sources for collecting more hard to find and exclusive items. The
biggest and perhaps most well known place to look is Ebay – with users
all over the world buying and selling collectibles (some so rare that
they can go for thousands of pounds sterling/dollars). Despite being
the biggest resource it can also be difficult to distinguish items
that are the real deal from fakes. I generally try and stick to buying
items from sellers that are located in Japan rather than say China to
try and avoid possible bootlegs.
