Anime News

As I reported on Saturday, I am informing you of a change in TV Tokyo's schedule following the aftermath of the earthquake off of the north-eastern coast of Japan. Previously, for this Thursday and next week, the episodes scheduled to air were the Team Rocket VS Team Plasma episodes, which featured destruction within Castelia City and the Desert Ruins. At this moment, these episodes have been removed from the schedule out of respect for those affected by the accident and the next episode, Episode 684; Castelia Gym Battle - Pure-Hearted Bug Pokémon Battle! is set to air. TV Tokyo have stated that they intend to air the episodes at a later point. When we know when they'll air it, we'll let you know.

Note About Japan

Currently, as I am sure many of you are aware, Japan is facing the aftermath of the earthquake and the tsunami which hit the north-eastern part of Japan centred around the city of Sendai. While Sendai was hit by the resultant tsunami, the epicentre was far from Tokyo and Kyoto, the bases of Nintendo and GameFreak. Nintendo have confirmed that their Japanese staff are all well and there was no structural damage to their buildings. There are currently various rumours going around that the creator of Satoshi Tajiri has passed. This is just mere false rumour so it's best to ignore it. We'll keep you aprised of any developments relating to Pokémon including whether or not episodes or the upcoming Typing DS game will be delayed so keep your eyes upon the site
