    GO Did you expect Pokemon GO to be as successful as it is?

    One thing that really impressed me is the "spillover" effect into sales of other Pokemon products. On iTunes, 2.B.A. Master and the first few movies have shot up from their usual positions, and I suspect card sales have seen an uptick as well. Spotify also reported a surge in Pokemon listening...

    Fossil Zapdos' and Their Errors

    The missing foil may have just been an issue with the 1st Edition Cards, but I'm not sure.

    GO Pokemon Go Theme Song

    Well, for the commercials, they could license "Never Tear Us Apart" by INXS ("Two Worlds Collided", know what I mean?). ;) Honestly, though, some variation of the main game theme would probably be best. I do like the Pokemon World song, but the game theme is more universal.

    Sony, Warner Bros., Legendary Pictures battle for Pokémon movie rights: The Hollywood...

    Just a minor suggestion-the Bulbanews article could be more clear in that the original source mentions a live-action movie. From an initial reading it sounded like they were bidding on the rights for the existing animated film series.

    New Red and Green soundtrack CD to be released in Japan: Will also include music from...

    As far as whether the tracks are from the old CD set, for what it's worth, the music used in the Pokémon Mario Maker level for the costumes is the same as the tracks on the original release, so they definitely still have those tracks somewhere.

    Remixes of older theme songs?

    The season 1 theme reprise was likely a one-off, as it does have the most nostalgia attached to it. Personally, I would be interested in them doing a cover album for the 20th anniversary (something like "Pokemon Johto" performed by an acapella group could be a lot of fun), but I don't think...

    Pokémon Reorchestrated YouTube channel taken down: Third copyright strike resulted in...

    Also, I suspect it generally helps drive traffic to the original video, which benefits the creator. As far as reviewing claims, YouTube (even as a subsidiary of a large company like Google), doesn't have the resources to review every one, especially since I assume most aren't disputed. That...

    Pokémon Reorchestrated YouTube channel taken down: Third copyright strike resulted in...

    Even if the notification was listed as being filed manually, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the folks who file these types of notices (as noted in the videos, this kind of work is often outsourced) have some sort of automation on their end (anyone know if filing a manual claim requires...

    Pokémon movies to be available via digital distribution, new movie-based iBooks to be ...

    I don't personally think the market's there for remastering a ton of episodes. Maybe they could do a sampler with 5-10 key ones, but beyond the movies I don't think a full remaster would be worth TPCI's time or money.

    English dubs of first three Pokémon movies coming to Region 1 on Blu-ray disc: Arriving ...

    The version of Pokemon 3 on iTunes US from 2009-early 2011 had the short and was available in HD (rental only-purchase was 480p widescreen). I know the 480p version still exists because if you bought it back then you can still download it. Actually, the original dub cover of 2000 is one of my...

    English dubs of first three Pokémon movies coming to Region 1 on Blu-ray disc: Arriving ...

    Very strange that Pokemon hasn't officially announced anything despite them coming out early next month. The lack of additional features is likely a contractual issue-I'm guessing that after the original rights expired (WB apparently had 10 years after the theatrical release to sell them), the...

    Will Pikachu ever forget Electro Ball (and learn something more useful)

    If not for Dedenne, Pikachu probably would have learned Nuzzle this generation-maybe they thought that move wasn't "cool" enough for him.

    Misty references in Diamond & Pearl series

    Really, in order for this to happen Misty would need to make some sort of major appearance (Elite Four/Champion of a new region?) in one of the games, which would more or less force the anime's hand. Seems unlikely.

    Music Chances of us getting old music tracks back for the anniversary?

    There could be a technical reason behind it-As I recall, with the dub, within the last few years they switched from 2.0 to 5.1 (at least for the broadcast version on CN) for the show-not sure if the Japanese version made a similar transition at some point-it's possible the old recordings...

    Questions about some older episodes

    Just to clarify, Pokemon was syndicated in the US prior to moving to the WB-a lot of the stations showing it just happened to be UPN affiliates.
