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.

Mewtwo, The Ultimate Pokemon

By Anonymous

I am almost positive that everyone has heard of the extremely powerful Pokemon Mewtwo. Mewtwo was created using Mew’s DNA. Mew has genetic relations with all Pokemon if I remember. Mewtwo was created in a lab funded by Giovanni, the boss of Team Rocket. Giovanni wants to create an extremely powerful Pokemon and they succeeded, they created the legendary Mewtwo. Mewtwo couldn’t control his powers, he was just that powerful. Giovanni tricked him by giving Mewtwo special armor so he could control him. Giovanni at the time was the Viridian City gym leader.

Purely to test out new Pokemon and see their power. Mewtwo became suspicious and didn’t want to work with Giovanni. He broke out and blew up the lab. Mewtwo found his own island that he used to clone Pokemon. He believed that the clones can destroy the originals. The legendary Mew wished to show him that there is no difference and humans aren’t bad. Currently Mewtwo lives at Cerulean Cave in the Kanto region. Cerulean Cave is of course located in Cerulean City. Mewtwo, I think, is at level seventy and still extremely powerful. Mewtwo is one of the hardest Pokemon you would ever have to capture. He has incredible special attack. Mewtwo is a psychic type Pokemon, just like Mew. Just don’t forget that Mewtwo is a clone of Mew, designed to have incredible powers. You would need a lot of Pokeballs to even attempt to capture this beast.

Mewtwo is Pokemon number 150 I believe. He is one of the final Kanto Pokemon, Mew being last. Due to Mewtwo being a clone of Mew as stated before, he has the word two after the name Mew. This is because he was made to be Mew, or the second Mew. Thus, being named Mewtwo. Cerulean Cave has a lot of powerful Pokemon ranging in the level fifty and up area. Only the most powerful and skilled Pokemon trainers have permission to enter Cerulean Cave because of this. If you manage through the puzzles and the powerful Pokemon, Mewtwo will be waiting for you. Do you have the skills to battle the legendary, incredibly powerful Mewtwo?

Competitive Battling: Ubers

By Anonymous

For those of you who have stalked the GameFAQS and IGN forums, you’ve surely seen battle requests and tournaments. The curious sorts of you may have actually considered joining one of these tournaments, even if just for laughs, or maybe to see just how your team matches up. So, now you’ve entered the thread, just to see an all caps rage in bold saying, “NO UBERS.” Alright then, so what is an “Uber?” In short, an Uber is a Pokemon who has base stats that are unfairly high without any significant drawbacks, including many legendary Pokemon. Some of the Ubers includes, but is not limited to, Mewtwo, Lugia, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Dialga, Arceus, Zekrom, and Wobbuffet. Note, that individual competition organizers may deem additional or fewer Pokemon as Ubers, or even disallow certain forms of Pokemon under the Uber pretense, such as Shaymin’s Sky forme.

Of course, there are players unfamiliar with competitive play that are quick to be frustrated with the widespread Uber disdain. After all, if a Pokemon is in game, why not make use of it? For those of you who agree, then consider this: there are seventeen officially designated Ubers. As they are the most powerful of all Pokemon, the only way to effectively compete would be to build the player’s team entirely of these Ubers. Now, how exciting can a tournament of the same handful of Pokemon be, over and over? Moreover, you couldn’t have much move set variation, as there are powerful moves that are the obvious choice for these Pokemon. So that there may be at least some use of the nearly seven hundred species, Ubers are disallowed as to offer some room for competitive players to work. That’s not to say there aren’t staples to such players, but there is at least some room for players to work and strategize.

What’s more, one of the building blocks of a good Pokemon team is good blood; what legendary Pokemon, and consequently Ubers, can’t do is breed, making it mere chance to get a good Pokemon to build into an official fighter. Through various methods, bred Pokemon can be fashioned to be the most effective fighter for the Pokemon species. For instance, IV’s. For those of you unaware, every Pokemon has an IV, and individual value, for each of his or her stats. The higher the IV is, up to thirty-one, the higher the maximum the stat can attain once the Pokemon has been fully raised to level one hundred. Wild Pokemon have random IV’s, and a Pokemon with more than one high IV is more than a bit rare. In order to raise the strongest Pokemon possible, breeders must essentially hit-and-miss with eggs, gambling on getting the highest set of IV’s they can. What’s more, having high IV’s isn’t enough. There’s also nature, which can both boost and hurt a Pokemon’s individual stats. In order to get the most powerful combination, competitive players more than put their time in. As breeding is impossible with many Ubers, it’s nothing more than chance that the Pokemon will have either good IV’s or nature, and a gamble that they’ll have both. As skill and patience is worth more than simple luck, non-legendary Pokemon are more worthwhile and sensible to train than legendaries.

As the lights turns off, the Master is coming in a bright blue light and reveals itself to be… Mewtwo! Fergus gets irate and states that a Pokemon can’t be a Pokemon trainer. Mewtwo then uses its psychic powers to toss Fergus in the fountain. Fergus orders Gyarados to attack and use Hyper Beam, but Mewtwo deflects the attack back at Gyarados, who’s sent flying straight in the pool!

By TokoyamiTheDark

***NOTE : This part was cut from the International Version, but was re-introduced in the 1st Movie DVD and in Mewtwo Returns***

August 6th : In a jungle, scientists are in search for a fossil of Mew, a Pokemon hailed as a god by an ancient Mayan civilisation. Mew was thought to be long extinct, but it is actually very much alive. the scientists then discovers an eyelid that belonged to Mew. This was enough to create Mewtwo, who was still in a larval stage. Communicating with the other clones, Mewtwo makes friends, especially with Ambertwo (Amber was her real name), who died as a child in a fire.

The Most Powerful Pokemon Mewtwo

By Stephanie Sartain

Mewtwo is a clone of Mew. Scientist were ordered by Giovanni to go into the jungle to obtain fossilized DNA from Mew which they created Mewtwo from. However they had many failed attempts before they created Mewtwo. Mewtwo became violent and destroyed the island it was on. Giovanni found Mewtwo and told it would be his partner and he would help it control its powers. However Giovanni betrayed Mewtwo’s trust and Mewtwo destroyed his Gym. Mewtwo then returned to the island and began creating clone Pokemon. It then summoned strong Pokemon Trainers to battle his cloned Pokemon. The Trainer’s Pokemon lost to the clones and Mewtwo stole their Pokemon to clone them. At one point Mew arrived and a battle ensued to see who was stronger the normal Pokemon or the cloned ones. Finally the battle ended and Mewtwo learned his lesson. He returned all the people back to where they were and wiped their memories clean. He then flew off with his clones to find a new home.

Several years later Giovanni found Mewtwo and attempted to force him to return to him. However thanks to Ash and friends Mewtwo was able to finally live in peace. Word is that he roams the areas at night.

In the games only one Mewtwo is obtainable in each game. He’s deep in a cave in Cerulean City. He is very hard to capture but if you do capture him he is one of the most powerful Pokemon you can have in the game. He comes at level seventy in the games. Because of his stats he is consider one of the most powerful characters you can have. And until later games came along the most powerful Pokemon you could have.

The Legendary Pokemon Mew

By Stephanie Sartain

Mew is a rarely seen Pokemon that many believe it’s just a mirage. However this is not the case. Mew is hard to obtain in the games without cheating or getting it from an event. However in the earlier Pokemon games it was possible to obtain Mew through a glitch. In this glitch several things had to be done before Mew would appear. For this glitch you must be in Cerulean City.

First you need either a Wigglytuff or a Butterfree knowing Sleep Powder. Second you must go and capture an Abra.
Third you had to walk up to the guy on the side next to the nugget bridge then press start then have Abra use teleport.
Fourth go and battle the guy with the Slowpoke making sure he walks up to you.
Fifth after the battle have Abra teleport you again.
Finally walk up nugget bridge your menu will pop up hit save and then continue then Mew will appear at level seven proceed to catching it.

That was the way to get Mew in the older Pokemon games.

Mew has appeared in Pokemon movies and Pokemon special as well. Mew first appeared in the “Pokemon the First Movie” where it had an epic battle with its clone Mewtwo. Mew again appeared in another movie called “Lucario and the Mystery of Mew”. In this movie Mew lived in a tree that gave life to Mew. Mew also appeared in the Pokemon special “The Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon”. In this special Mew was a mirage Pokemon that help saved Ash and the gang sacrificing its life to do so.

Pokemon : The 1st Movie, Mewtwo, Deoxys And MOTHER Similarities

By TokoyamiTheDark

It had come in my mind about a question among EarthBound fans are asking themselves. They think Mewtwo and Deoxys are too much like Giegue (Mewtwo) and E.V.E(Deoxys) in the Japan-only MOTHER game, whose sequel was released in the US with the name of “EarthBound” on the SNES. But what are exactly these hommages fans are taling about. First off, the Japanese movie’s name and the Japanese name of EarthBound : “Myuutsu no Gyaakushuu” and “Gigu no Gyaakushu”. The names are very similar, as both characters are counterattacking someone or something from their past. But now, let’s see the similarities of each character as well as the desing of the two MOTHER characters spoken about.

Giegue is a light blue alien with a vague ressemblance to Mewtwo, exept its ears are a lot bigger and has claws rather than ’round thumbs’ that Mewtwo has. Both have 3 fingers on their hands and 2 toes. He is the last boss of MOTHER and has a touching tale of birth.
