Saturday, 08.13.05  Gamespot has a detailed review of Pokemon XD; Gale of Darkness today.  The game was just release in Japan:

"The game has some catchy battle tunes and plenty of familiar sound effects from the Pokémon. The battle sound effects also sound nice, from the various energy attacks to the soft hiss of falling rain. The pocket monsters themselves also look good in 3D and are sharply defined. Meanwhile, their short animations do the job well. Special abilities also have a unique look to them, with the energy and shadow abilities featuring good richness of color and some depth. From the time we've spent with the import version, it looks like longtime fans of Pokémon will be easily turned to the shadowy side by Pokémon XD when it's released in the States later this year. We'll be sure to keep this gamespace updated as more information comes forward, so stay tuned for more news of the unfortunate emo Pokémon and their perkier cousins."

Video Games News from Gamespot: Trio of Pokemon games coming to DS

"Three new Pokemon games are in development for the Nintendo DS, reports the latest issue of Comic Korokoro. Two others are scheduled for release this year, with one being a puzzle game and one a dungeon role player. Not much is known about the third, except that it will be an action-oriented role-playing game.

The DS Pokemon puzzle game will be titled Pokemon Torouze, which roughly translates into English as "Get Pokemon." The game seems near completion, as its release date for Japan is currently October 20.

The second Pokemon spin-off is titled Pokemon: Fushigi no Dungeon Blue, and it is slated for release in Japan this winter. A GBA version, titled Pokemon: Fushigi no Dungeon Red, is also scheduled for release in the same period. Specific details on both Fushigi no Dungeon Blue and Red haven't been disclosed yet, but their titles suggest they will be Pokemon editions of Chunsoft's popular Fushigi no Dungeon RPG series. The Fushigi no Dungeon series is known for its randomly generated dungeon maps, which was a stunning system for its time back when it made its debut in 1993.

Comic Korokoro also unveiled first details on Pokemon Rangers, which the magazine announced last month without citing any game information or release platform. As it turns out, Pokemon Rangers will be an action RPG for the DS. The player will take the role of a Pokemon Ranger, a person that fights to preserve nature and wildlife by using Pokemon. Pokemon Rangers will be released next year, just prior to Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, and it will feature some form of interaction with the other two Pokemon games. Pokemon Rangers is also said to have some connection to next year's Pokemon movie and anime series in Japan." - more ... source

Monday, 08.01.05  I've been getting a lot of email about Pokemon Diamond & Pearl the last few weeks.  These are two new games coming out for the Nintendo DS. People want to know when these games are coming out and more about them. The last I heard was that these games aren't schedule to hit stores until 2006.  The DS allows for 16 players to communicate via WiFi. Pokemon Diamond & Pearl will make full use of this capability.  If anyone has news that contradicts that, feel free to pass it along.
