Hmm, a huge celebration in New York city in honor of Pokemon's tenth anniversary. Maybe I could go. I mean I've been meaning to go into the city to go shopping for an anime-style wig (dont ask) and I haven't been to the city in almost six years.
It's next Tuesday, eh? I wonder if my mom would be free to drive me. (I mean there's like no way I'm taking public transportation!
oh, fyi I live not far from NYC, it takes about an hour to get there.
Maybe I'll go. I dont like the city and the commotion but hey, if Pokemon's having a party.
I'll go look for more information

^ I wish I was there ¬¬.
10 Years already that went fast.
So I must have been 4 when it came out ;).

Also It seems your a cosplayer :D whats the ocasion? Actually, I'm not a cosplayer, I just dont like my haircolor yet I want to do something drastic to my hair but dont have the guts to use scissors.
Oh, I'm having doubts about going. New York city is going through a dangerous heatwave. It's like 110 degrees F during midday and 120 in the subways and outside my house it's like 100. I swear, you just stand in the shade in a decent breeze and your sweat could turn the Sahara into a rainforest.
My mom said she'd be glad to take me though. And my dad's in Manhattan that day so I could visit him
I'm just warning you all, the heat is insane!
If you cant picture 100+, put your face in front of a blowdrier on max heat.

Edit:
Good news, it looks like the weather's gonna be nice on Tuesday :D

Man I wish I lived in NYC.... T-T I've never even been there...

(boy, it's good to be back on PC...)

*sighs* Wish I could celebrate Pokémon without worries again... (I did go to the one in Raleigh, NC, and I was VERY happy!)

Well, for those who can make it, please be extra careful, as Crystal Clair said. Drink plenty of water before and during the event (Bring a backpack full of water bottles if you have to!) I don't think they really need fainted Pokémaniacs in the crowded streets of NYC...

Oh, and Master Kwesi Nkromah, if you do interview people there, try to talk to the mayor of NYC, Michael Bloomberg. He actually proclaimed it to be Pokémon Day on August 8! And don't forget Hulk Hogan; I'm wondering why he decided to host a great event like this!

Yeah, Celebi is probably gonna be availible to download, but that's not the Pokémon that's gonna attract all the attention at those stations. It's the FLYING PIKACHU that will!

Oddly enough, all info was found on http://www.nintendo.com/, not http://www.pokemon.com/...

Ten years of Pokemon. Since I can't come, I might as well say this: "Congratulations and many happy returns, Pikachu!"

I hope the people who do get to go have a smashing time. :)

HAH! I beat NewsBot to the Flying Pikachu info! (I know it's automated; don't ruin my moment...)

After reading an email sent out by PokémonCenter.com, it looks like that the special Flying Pikachu is going to replace Celebi as the special Pokémon availible for download. Sorry, Renagadez.

If anyone's willing, I will trade my Celebi for one! (I can let go since I already have one on each of my cartridges, which means six of them...)

;_; Argh, I want to go but I live too far away. xD If only this was two weeks earlier...I could've convinced my parents to make a detour on our trip.

Glad to hear you'll be taking pictures though, Kwesi. Make an announcement with them or something. 8DD

I wish! My dad had a meeting in NYC a few days ago, if I had known when the party was I woulda gone to and stayed for the party. Oh well, I'll just have to read about it on here.

I live in New Jersey, but I doubt I'll be able to book transport to New York for just the day. And that's with work the following morning. So don't expect me there.

Crystal Clair
August 7th, 2006, 06:41 PM
I'm definitely going tomorrow. I'll be the one with the "Crystal Clair" nametag (if I dont forget it, that is). I'll try taking some pictures too.... if I can just find my darn digital camera!
Is Celebi really for download? I'm packing my DS then.
And yes my mom insists we take public transportation because she doesn't want to pay twenty bucks to park the car in one of those fancy garages. At least we get to take one of those fancy buses with the comfortable seats ^_^
Hope to see at least the thread creator there.

I went.... and I took some photos. I took pictures of the Pikachu float, two of Brendan (Emerald) and Hinata, and my mom took two pictures of me with the two Pokemon at the entrance.
For anyone who went, did you do that thing where you run around Bryant Park and have people stamp this card? I did (well my mom really wanted to) The prize SUCKED and when I say sucked, I mean "write a letter of complaint to the Pokemon company" It was nothing but this stupid black keychain ribbon with the word "nintendo" on it. It was flimsy and pointless and I was utterly disgusted.
However, I was over at the Pokemon wheel thing where it's like wheel of Fortune and you hope to land on Pikachu.
I landed on Pikachu
And I won a sparkly Mew notebook! I dont like Mew but it's a pretty book.
I didn't get one of those bags..... though I almost stole other kids bags. Some nice person did give me their Pokemon fan.
After I left the party, I headed up town to the NintendoWorld. The second I entered, the stupid intercom said "10 minutes until the store closed" so I ran upstairs and purchased a super kawaii Plusle Pokedoll. I luv it soo!
Then we went to this wig place and I bought this wig that looks like Hinata's hair color. Then we went home.
The drive up to the city was a mix of good and bad.
Good: The weather was perfect and the sky was a deep azure with clouds. We got a parking spot a few cars from the bus stop.
Bad: The bus took forever, and once we got on, the seats were full so I had to stand up until we reached the first stop of Manhattan XP
I didn't see the Hulk but I saw Hinata, Brendan and Nurse Joy. I also told Hinata she was awesome. ^\\\^
Gotta go

I was there interviewing people. I'm sorry I missed you both but I had a blast. I know what you mean Crystal Clair, for the amount of time you have to wait on all those lines to get all those stamps to get the "free prize", the free prize sucked... luckily i was patient enough to wait until the end of the show. At the end, they started showering everyone with all the Pokémon give-aways.. so i didn't go around collecting stamps. I waited till the end and just walked over to the table and got 5 of those silly key chains. in fact, I got a bunch of other things too. I even convinced one of the pretty staff girls to give me her shirt! I had a great time.

High Point: Meeting all those Pokémon fans while interviewing. Meeting crew from serebii.net, meeting crew from PokeGym.com, meeting the owner of Pokemon Elite 2000 for the first time. getting that girl to take her shirt off..

Low Point: Missing the opportunity to take pictures and video of the creator of pokemon. I was busy standing on a line that stretched 5 blocks!! well maybe not 5 blocks but it took forever for me to get to the front of the blasted thing.

I'll be posting pictures, video, and live interviews from the event soon. I think everyone who attended should do the same. post you pokemon party pictures!!

Sounds like you had a good time.

This local TV news story about it isn't very respectful. http://www.ny1.com/ny1/content/index.jsp?stid=1&aid=61663

Seriously, I don't think anybody pronounced "Pokémon" correctly in the video, and looking at the transcript, they didn't research at all about the legendary dogs "Richu, Ente and Swekum".

Master Kwesi Nkromah

LOL...
Well I wouldn't really call it disrespectful. Its just that the reporter didn't get his facts straight. that's probably why he's stuck doing web casts instead of being in the studio doing live tv. Don't worry tho, my report has much more depth than NY1s. Pokemon Elite should be coming out with their report soon as well.
