And if you're asking "What's cool about a Newspaper?"

THE NEWS, Thats what! :)

I'm just sharing the news here!

Well, that's all there is...

I'll be sharing the News with you every Monday starting next week. :)

Well Pokerus, this newspaper looks like it has the energy to go far!

April 20th, 2009, 12:23 AM
OOh, looks interesting!

April 20th, 2009, 12:29 AM
Never seen or read anything like it... keep it up!

April 20th, 2009, 12:30 AM
This looks really good, but I'm not sure if the staff will like it.
I tried to get a PC Newsletter going here, but it was shut down quickly.
It may have just been because it was about PC, whereas yours is about Pokemon in general.
So, it could have the potential to go far, keep it up!

April 20th, 2009, 1:32 AM
Thanks for your support!

Hoping you will be good contributors! :)


April 20th, 2009, 3:51 AM
Oh, gosh darn it.
Why does my paper never seem to get this much positive attention?
Oh wait, my paper sucks, nevermind.

April 20th, 2009, 4:04 AM
Wow this is cool and I love the idea for this. If this surely becomes popular enough I would love the be your news contributor. I scour the internet all the time for Pokemon news and I get it to PC in a snap always before anyone has a chance so for this I'm sure I could be of help. Good luck and continue with this excellent project!

April 20th, 2009, 12:46 PM
Nice idea, looks good. I'd be willing to help, even. I could help with grammar, or writing articles, or making comics.

April 20th, 2009, 6:26 PM

Well, I need contributors! :)

Contribution for News is now! :)

keep up the good work

April 20th, 2009, 6:35 PM
This is interesting. Keep it up.

April 20th, 2009, 7:44 PM
Hm, sounds nice. If this becomes successful, I look forward to reading it.

April 20th, 2009, 8:31 PM
Please support the Paper! :)

P.S. = :)

April 20th, 2009, 10:08 PM
Awesome job, esp. for a sample. Keep it up!

April 21st, 2009, 5:58 AM
Thanks for comments...

Contribute something! :)

P.S. = *sigh* I'll keep my confidence up! Many WILL SUPPORT THIS!

"And the Crowd goes wild! :) Whooshoo! :)"

This looks like it has a lot of potential, so far. ;)
The colour scheme is a bit meh, though. You have the pictures, which are all in colour then you have the 'The Pokemon Times' title in the top left corner in black and white, I suggest you make the pictures black and white or make the 'The Pokemon Times' thing in colour. Never the less, keep it up. :D

April 21st, 2009, 8:09 PM
Thanks for the tip, Espeon!

Sure! I'll do it, but i need Ideas for a Logo / or even hire a Graphic Artist. :)

Wow, this does look nice. xD

I could make a logo for it in Photoshop.. I have the Pokemon font to work with, and such.

April 21st, 2009, 9:45 PM
Drew! You're a lifesaver!

Thanks! And help me share my Newspaper! :)

Oh, i mean, OUR Newspaper! :)

P.S. = Show me the Logo, babe! :)

Support Pokemon Times! :)

April 21st, 2009, 10:26 PM
Wow this looks really promising :)

how about a rumor section? im sure if i find anything interesting ill show you

April 22nd, 2009, 1:24 AM
Pokemon times, sounds interesting...I'll be looking forward to read it, keep it up n_n Don't let it down!

April 22nd, 2009, 5:05 AM
Why didnt you use the original Pokemon Logo
instead of the Black font. and i think it needs colour
everything else, is cool. How often is this gonna be released?

April 22nd, 2009, 7:34 AM
Well the concept is amazing. I love this. The only problem I find is that its kinda small and It looks aliitle sloppy. Now I get it that, Thjis is like ur first papeer and I'm sure if this becomes more popular it would look very much like a newspaper, but It looks great right now. Overall I'd give the paper a nine out of ten. I might be able to get some new pokemon information if u need too.

Sorry Pokerus, I havent found any more news apart from the one I told you, can I ask when the first issue is out?

April 22nd, 2009, 9:12 AM
A better name would be the Goldenrod City Times or the Jubilife City Times.

April 22nd, 2009, 9:43 AM
Hey aren't I'm the Graphic Artist as you told??

The paper looks great. I would love to be interviewed about the Pokemon game I am making for the Reader of the Month section. Let me know if you would like to.

Wait. Shouldn't it be Reader of the Week since you are going to publish an issue every week? It would be a bit weird having the same interview in there for 5 weeks until the next month starts.

April 22nd, 2009, 8:32 PM
Release Date:
"Monday (That's 04/27/09)"

Thanks for the Suggestions and Comments... :)

P.S. = Status: Editing...

Sorry for the Inconvenience...

If you find it hard to read the paper, we'll try our best to Improvise it... :)

Of course.. We need suggestions and comments...

As far as we may go, please avoid negative comments...

Or if you have so, post a private message on my profile...

Thanks! :)

P.S.² = Support Pokemon Times!

Hey... Do you think i should make a social group out of it? :)

P.S. = :)

April 23rd, 2009, 12:08 PM
Wow this seems really cool. I will be looking forward to it. :)
-Thumbs up-

April 23rd, 2009, 1:45 PM
This looks like it has potential. If you need any help with graphics, just ask.

Looking forward to the first issue!

April 23rd, 2009, 9:30 PM
Need Banners!


The release is on Monday... :)


April 23rd, 2009, 10:42 PM
Where will we post the first issue.? In this thread.?

April 23rd, 2009, 10:52 PM

We'll start a new thread for every issue...

Just how many threads will that take...

Or I'll just make a solo thread and post all issues there... :)

P.S. = Don't Worry... I'll take care of it! :)

April 23rd, 2009, 11:39 PM
I could make some userbars and banners if you like. This newspaper looks better then a lot i have seen keep up the good work :D

April 23rd, 2009, 11:42 PM
So Pokemon XD...

Why not graphic artist ? :)

P.S. :)

April 24th, 2009, 1:40 AM
I could contribute by sharing some cool infos about everyday life and such. Just ask me.

Looking forward to it!

April 24th, 2009, 2:49 AM
This looks really interesting :P
May sound stupid, but if you keep at it and it gets big you could make a website where people can register their email and have it sent to them every Monday xD

April 24th, 2009, 5:52 PM
I agree with Man riding a goat. I think it`s a great idea. But for now, it should stay small. Everything turns out bad when you try to do too much.

Also, I think it should be one thread for all the issues, not one thread each.

April 24th, 2009, 7:16 PM
Yeah... Go for small...

Because if you do so hard but nobody supports it, all the efforts go loose... :)

Thanks for the info!

P.S. = Maybe I'll be an Editor-in-Chief of a Printing Press someday...

Or a Reporter!

Or a News Anchor!

Or a! Or a! ...

*sigh* Just too many dreams! :)

April 25th, 2009, 7:57 AM
Very nice and unique.I've never saw anything like it,good job!^^
