Thursday 05.03.01 Well ... my house kinda caught on fire Monday night. We had an electrical fire above the kitchen ceiling. No one was hurt, and the Fire Department put it out before it spread to the rest of the house. We didn't really get electricity back on until last night. So ... forgive me for not updating as usual. I'll try to get some fun things up today.

If you missed the message on the front page regarding our message board, here it is again: "Our Message Board will be shut down most of the day today. EZBoard is upgrading to 6.1 which will add new features for users and board managers. The board will reportedly be much faster, and show Who's online. Cool!"
Monday 04.23.01 I took a long siesta this weekend, and didn't do any website work at all, except for a few moderator changes at the Message Board. Now it's time to get my hands dirty again ...
Today's Pojo News is now posted. Here are some highlights:
I made a posting blunder Friday. CHRISBO sent me another awesome WOTC Chat Report, and I completely forgot to post it! DOH! Sorry Chris! There is some great stuff in in this week regarding:
I added a new poll to the site today. It's about the new format for the East Coast Super Trainer Showdown. We want to hear your thoughts on it. The poll is in the right margin today. Thanks to motoki-O for the poll idea.
Friday 04.20.01 - Wizards of the Coast announced the format of the East Coast Super Trainer Showdown on their website last night. Here is what Dark Master Trainer Mike had to say:
"- Only Pokemon TCG cards from the following sets may be used: Team Rocket, Gym Heroes, Gym Challenge and Neo Genesis. Cards from any sets previous to these sets or from the Neo Discovery set are not permitted for deck construction.
- All Pokemon TCG promo cards may be used, with the exception of promo cards that have identical versions in Pokemon TCG card sets that are have been restricted from use. This includes all Pre-Release and foil stamped versions of these cards. (Pre-Release Clefable, Pre-Release Aerodactyl, etc.)
- Sneazel, a Pokemon from the Neo Genesis expansion cannot be played in this event.
We have removed the older sets from this environment in order to generate new deck styles and deck ideas for play. A large enough base of cards has been included to allow players to build decks without limiting the types of viable Pokemon, or removing the key cards necessary to play decks with multiple Pokemon types.
The decision to remove Sneazel from this environment does not indicate that we consider the card a problem for normal constructed play. We did feel that, in this environment, Sneazel presented too strong a Pokemon choice to be ignored by skilled trainers and that he would be included in most decks. We felt this would not allow decks ideas to be fully realized, since Sneazel would be chosen as the optimal Active Pokemon. It is our belief that with the release of later sets, that Sneazel will not populate decks so fully as to curb good deck construction concepts."
So ... tell us what you think in the STS section of our Message Board!
Thursday 04.19.01 Sadly, this is Jackie's last day handling Pojo's Pokemon News. Here's what's inside Jackie's last report:

Wednesday 04.18.01 Yes ... the rumored news is true. Pojo's Pokemon Monthly will come to an end soon. One more monthly issue will hit the stands in May of 2001. That mag will be the June 2001 issue. Our publisher, H&S Media, decided to cancel the magazine due to declining sales, and lack of advertising revenue. But it was a heck of a run! We were able to produce 19 quality monthly Pokemon Magazines for you (from December 1999 to June 2001). We also made a Guide to U.S. Pokemon Cards last Christmas. That's a total of 20 issues! That is way cool, and something me and the staff are really proud of.
Is this the end of future Pojo Magazines? Not yet! Our first Dragon Ball Z mag sold like hot cakes. The second one just hit the newsstands. If it sells well, we may make some more. Same thing for our upcoming Magic: The Gathering Magazine. Heck, another Pokemon Special isn't completely out of the picture??!!
I want to thank all the people that contributed regularly to make Pojo's Pokemon Magazine the coolest Monthly Pokemon title on the market. Special thanks goes out to: Nancy Davies, Scott Gerhardt, Jackie La Berg, Kit Kiefer, Hal Hintze, Brian Brokaw, Tyler Grund, JonnyO, Ron Smalec, Chippy, Josh, Doll, Satoshi, Ness, Jonathan Ng, Edo, Kittyfox, Gordon Kane, Griffin, Keith Williams, Steve Diamond, Aaron, Tyais, PokeDoc, Spike, Pie, Glenn Kardy, Gina, Ray, Catherine Buckley, Amy Gill, Crash, GLitcH, Underdog, PokePop, PokeSensei, Jen, Gary Mollohan, and some important folks at H&S Media - Bob Baker, Steve Keen, and Harvey Wasserman. Thanks to all you guys!!! As I said in the December 2000 issue .... I may be a few fries short of a Happy Meal, but you guys help me hide that fact pretty darn well. - Pojo
