Super Smash Bros. Brawl Poke Ball Pokemon: Munchlax!




Munchlax will appear as a Poke Ball item Pokemon in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Munchlax slowly walks around and eats any item it gets.


Super Smash Bros. Brawl will be released on December 3, 2007.




PE2K Comment

Not exactly the most useful ability, but at least it's no Goldeen. Definitely glad to see Munchlax in the game though. The other confirmed Poke Ball item Pokemon includes Chikorita, Goldeen, Groudon, and Deoxys.

Pokemon Diamond: Best Selling Video Game of the Year!



Press Release (09/06/07)


Wii and Nintendo DS Sales Fuel Pokemon Momentum

Grown Men and Women Rediscover the Games of their Youth


Pok?n games have always been best-sellers. But the huge popularity of the portable Nintendo DS? and the Wii? home video game system has put the Pok?n craze into a whole new category.


Just check out these statistics:

- According to the independent NPD Group, through July Pok?n Diamond is the best-selling video game of the year on any system, while Pok?n Pearl ranks No. 3.

- The newly released Pok?n Battle Revolution already ranks at No. 5 on the list of best-selling Wii games for the year.

- Pok?n Diamond and Pok?n Pearl for Nintendo DS have sold more than 3 million copies in the United States alone.

- Pok?n games have helped boost sales of Nintendo hardware. According to the NPD Group, Wii and Nintendo DS were again the two best-selling video game systems in the United States in July.


"These hard numbers show that the Pok?n franchise and Nintendo's systems are striking a chord with players of all ages and drawing in huge numbers of new players year after year," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "But anecdotally we're also seeing that these new Pok?n games are appealing to older players, the same ones who played the original Pok?n games when they debuted in the United States almost 10 years ago."


Grown men and women with kids of their own proudly announce they are training Pok?n and having a blast doing it. Gamer site www.Penny-Arcade.com ran a four-part comic about the artist's Pok?nia, while Kristin Brandt of ManicMommies.com posted: "I have become obsessed. I have played for many, many hours (I can't even admit to how many ? it's embarrassing)? And I can't seem to stop! There are more Pok?n to capture, more levels to conquer and more badges to earn!"


The Pok?n franchise has sold more than 164 million games worldwide. For more information about Pok?n Battle Revolution, Pok?n Diamond and Pok?n Pearl, visit www.Pokemon-Games.com. Remember that Wii features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other Wii features, visit Wii.com.




PE2K Comment

No surprise here. Even before Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl were released, they were expected to be the top selling games.

PE2K: 7th Year Anniversary!



Pokemon Elite 2000 (PE2K) celebrates its 7th year anniversary today. PE2K began as a tiny, tiny spot on the web on August 28, 2000 (hence the 2000 in the name, makes sense doesn't it?). And now, 7 years later, we're a slightly larger spot on the web.


When I first started making the website, I had no idea how to make a website. So it was also the first day I began to learn how to create a website. I worked non-stop that very first day, learning and getting up as much content on the website as possible. I had some visitors, mostly by giving the link to people that I've met through Pokemon chat rooms. If you talked to me at all during that time, you were definitely getting linked. Any of you out there still?


Slowly the site grew larger, as did the forum (though the forum came years later). I hate to repeat myself every year, but I never imagined that so many people would visit the website and forum. It's something you really hope for, but I'm a logical kind of guy, a successful website and forum doesn't just drop into your hands.


So here's to 7 years, and looking forward to making this spot on the web, into a bigger spot on web.

The New York Times: Remember Squirtle and Jigglypuff?


The New York Time has an article on Pokemon's marketing strategy.


Remember Squirtle and Jigglypuff? They?re Back (The New York Times)




Also in June, Pok?n USA?s trading card unit began shipping a new series of cards featuring the 104 characters created for the Diamond and Pearl introduction (like Piplup, Chimchar and Turtwig) as well as many of the old characters.


It was the first time that new games, a new television season, and a fresh batch of cards were introduced in this country at roughly the same time, Ms. Rawlinson said. ?All the elements support each other,? she said. ?The kids play the Diamond and Pearl games and watch the new shows, and they immediately want to get the new cards.?


Another element of the revival has been a change in toy vendors, from Hasbro to Jakks Pacific, which introduced a new product line. Jeremy Padawer, Jakks?s vice president for brand marketing, said Hasbro had focused on a few main Pok?n characters, but his company is shipping toys that use more than 100 of the 500 characters.


The new merchandise was showcased this summer at the Toys ?R? Us store in Times Square, which opened a temporary Pok?n boutique. Next month, Toys ?R? Us plans to open Pok?n boutiques in its 585 other domestic stores, said Ronald D. Boire, the president of Toys ?R? Us.


Sales of the trading cards this year have already exceeded sales for all of 2006, and by the end of the year are expected to triple last year?s total, according to Pok?n USA. The June 4 debut episode of ?Pok?n Diamond and Pearl? on the Cartoon Network was the top-rated show that day for boys ages 6 to 11.


Total merchandise sales this year are expected to exceed million, compared with less than million last year, Ms. Rawlinson said.


After the overexposure issues of recent years, the company has learned to be more selective about licensing its name. ?We get requests for all kinds of products, but now we turn a lot down,? Ms. Rawlinson said. Would-be Pok?n products that ended up on the reject list include diapers and gerbil cages.

PE2K Comment

Again, the idea of "all the elements support each other," meaning, the new games, new TV show season, and new cards all were introduced around the same time so they help each other. A very important aspect that has been practiced for Pokemon in Japan for a long time, but only recently applied here.
