Well today we've got good news and bad news. If you don't like bad news then skip over the next few sentences:
THE BAD NEWS: Nintendo has posted on their Pokemon site that the Gold and Silver versions will have "at least 4 new Pokemon." WAIT A MINUTE! FOUR??? Shouldn't that be more like 40??? While that doesn't mean that there WILL only be four new Pokemon, it's a bit of a low number to post don't you think? We'll have to wait and see what happens...
THE GOOD NEWS: Nintendo has announced a June release of Pokemon Gold and Silver IN JAPAN, and that means we might see the new games by Christmas! Also, Gold/Silver will be compatable with Red/Blue/Yellow and you'll need to trade with the old versions to complete the game.
The first expansion of the popular Pokemon Trading Card Game or TCG is on it's way! The Jungle Edition is in the final stages and is set to be released in early July. Look for more info soon in the Pokemon Hotel TCG section.
They say that no news it good news. Well, I HAVE news and it's NOT good... Nintendo has announced that it will be delaying not one but TWO of the upcoming Pokemon games. Now the release dates are:
I just learned that both Pikachu and Jigglypuff will be battling it out in Nintendo's upcoming game Smash Brothers. While Pikachu will be selectable from the start, you'll have to earn Jigglypuff by beating the game straight through. For those who don't know, Smash Bros. is a fighting game starring some of Nintendo's greatest characters. It will be 4-player too.
