Take these with a massive pinch of salt, as it's possible very little will come of these, but a member of NeoGaf - that infamous forum where just about EVERY game-related leak apparently manages to find its way onto - has stumbled upon a list of Nintendo's latest trademark applications. Among them, a bunch of new Pokemon game trademarks.

These trademarks also include Red, Blue, Green and Yellow - so it's possibly just Nintendo covering its ass legally, presumably with the trademarks for the first four games slipping over time.

HOWEVER, the last time we found a big list like this, it was during the run up to Ruby and Sapphire and included the names Diamond and Pearl.

So... yeah...

Pokémon Black, Pokémon Brown, Pokémon White, Pokémon Gray, Pokémon Scarlet, Pokémon Purple, Pokémon Crimson, and a second version of Pokémon Scarlet (spelt slightly differently in Japanese) are the new trademarks to have appeared - notably all basic colours akin to R/B/G/Y.

Like I said, take it as...

Hey guys. Since we're coming up on the Semi-Finals for the Pokecharms Winter Tournament: Baby Cup Battle, I figured I'd do a brief update for anyone who's taken an interest in the tourney along the way.

The Pokecharms Winter Tournament, first announced by Ruko on November 14th '08, saw a nice amount of interest, both from our current members and site viewers who joined specifically to participate. The rules were extensive but fair, with tons of prizes offered up by fellow Charms goers, and over 30 members showed interest in joining (a nice number for Charms' first ever organized tourney). When all was said and done, the registration period came to a close with 16 (or was it 17 originally?) registered participants.

The battles were structured in a...

Well, it's that time again. The time when I get off my butt and actually post the new Member Showcase. I've had two members in mind for these next two updates for sometime now - it was just a matter of who I caught first.

For over a year now, Jeydis has been another active member of Charms who incorporates herself into the community in lots of different ways. She helps out with team building in the clinic, has done hordes of banner/user bar and sprite requests for members, actively posts on various boards, role plays, hangs out at times in the chat, and was one of the participants in Charms' first and still currently on-going D/P Tournament. For all she's done, our members nominated her for a Member Showcase, and thus here it finally is. Since Jeydis' involvement in Pokecharms is so varied, the questions I...
Coro Coro announced recently that a new Mystery Dungeon game, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky, will be released in Japan in the Spring (no news as to what the US and European dates might be yet, of course). It's a direct sequel to Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, as far as I can tell, as it features a brand new storyline involving Grovyle the Thief, as well as some new guild-based episodes.

To sweeten the deal, the game also has (at least) five new starters: Riolu, Eevee, Phanpy, Vulpix and Shinx. We'll keep you updated with any further news as it comes.
As I said here, I would update when I got a release date for the European missions.

Both, Dialga in Hia Valley? and Palkia in Haruba Desert!? missions are now up for the Europeans.

Like with the American release, you cannot transfer Palkia or Dialga to your Diamond or Pearl game.

As far as I know of, the other three events will be up until February 14th for the Europeans. So, if you haven't downloaded the mission yet, you still have one month to do so.

Keep that styler ready and t'is all for now Ranger Fans.
Well, it's finally up - a few weeks after I said I'd attempt to get it done by. The major reason for this was the lack of ability to actually interact with the server and get any work done over Christmas. But - now that I'm back to my own compy (and shiny new lappy), I've got the opportunity to get some work done.

I was going to wait for the Pokedex upgrade to be finished before launching the layout fully - but believe it or not, the credit crunch is hitting even us as the Google ads are slowly failing to pay for the site thanks to a crummy exchange rate. This should be enough of a kick up the arse for them to keep up with the site costs.

As promised, you can choose another theme to use on the forums should you wish. This includes the previous layout that we have used for years as well as the brief Ranger 2 themed layout that was available in this specific forum throughout December.

As event related themes are put up, they will continue to be selectable after the event in the...
Yes, me with another Pokemon Ranger update.

Anywho, North Americans have access to two more Special Missions, "Dialga in Hia Valley?" and "Palkia in Haruba Desert!?"

We'll update with the European dates as soon as we get them. Dialga and Palkia, however, you cannot transfer into your Diamond or Pearl game.

Of course, if you haven't downloaded the three previous missions, you have until January 30th to do so.
Well. If you're wondering where the Christmas Competition like last year's Wishing Nights is, it's right here. Only, it's a year end competition. This is the Charms Quote Competition.

We chose this style of competition because the Chat Log had so many great quotes, and they were sitting there doing nothing. That was our inspiration for this competition this year. These quotes are staff favourites, so they represent most of the Staff here quite well. Hopefully you'll find them just as amusing as we did.

This will last one week, from Christmas Eve (today) until New Year's Eve (midnight Pacific Standard Time). Winners will be revealed shortly following.

Check out the rest at the bottom of the topic after the comment jump. :)
(Wtf, news entry from Stel?)

Technically, it's been the 24th here for two hours, but as I don't personally celebrate Christmas, and midnight just rolled into the dwellers of the GMT timezone, I figured this would be as good a time as any to post my little Christmas gift to the entire community.

Happy holidays of any sort you may be celebrating or trying to avoid, and beware the green cheese at midnight! ^^
Sorry for the complete lack of notice about this - but something's been going awry in the script that's supposed to remove the trainer cards automatically after a month and they haven't been getting wiped as they should.

As such, the folder's now filling up the server and we're running out of space 'cos of it. I'll look into why the script's being utter fail as soon as I get the chance, but for now I've purged the entire card folder.

Again, apologies for the inconvenience but hopefully the trouble wont happen again.
