New Pokémon Wii Game Announced

Sorry about the lack of updates to the news blog recently, amongst thinking I posted something earlier but didn’t (see the end of this post for more on that), I’ve been a bit busy. However, do look for a new competition in the general chat section of the forums this Sunday (18th)

Nintendo officially announced a new Pokémon Wii game today. Poképark Wii: Pikachu’s Big Adventure see’s the most famous Pokémon roaming around a giant amusement park called the Poképark. Pikachu will want to have a go on some of the rides, but unfortunately, a lot of the rides require Pokémon abilities Pikachu just doesn’t possess. The Marine Slider game needs a Pokémon who’s good at swimming to fully enjoy it, and only a flying Pokémon can partake in the Habataki Sky Race.

So what’s a yellow mouse Pokémon to do? Well make friends of course. By teaming up with other Pokémon that are visiting the park, you’ll be able to play mini games with them to become friends, allowing you team up and take on the rides. Mini games include playing a game of tag, battling your soon to be friend, and taking part in a quiz, answering questions on Pokémon.

Being able to take pictures in game and save them to an SD card (and possibly send them to your Wii friends) and with graphics far better than the likes of Pokémon Ranch or Pokémon Rumble (we’ll try and get some pictures for you soon), this looks to be a good, fun title for the Wii. Poképark Wii: Pikachu’s Big Adventure will be released in Japan on December 5th. No details about an English release yet.

As for the next piece of news, I was sure I updated with this, but it seems like I haven’t. Sorry. Anyway, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky has been given a European release date of November 20th. The third Mystery Dungeon game on DS, recently released in the US, features some additional maps, starters and partners from the previous two instalments, plus some other updated features.

That’s all we have for now. We’ll bring you more when we know it.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky dated

The 3rd Pokemon Mystery Dungeon instalment, Explorers of Sky, has been given  a release date for the United States according to GameStop. Like Platinum is to Diamond and Pearl, Explorers of Sky is a revist to the games of Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and features most of the same game. Improvements and additions to the game include 6 additional starters to chose from, new areas to explorer including Destiny’s Tower and Shaymin village, and then there are additional missions inbetween the main storyline, you’ll be able to play as some Non Playable Characters in special missions to learn more about them.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorersof Sky will be released on October 1st acording to GameStop. However since this is a thursday, and games in the US are usually released on a tuesday, it could change. Nintendo of Europe recently released their Q3 release schedule (which goes up to the end of September) and the new PMD game isn’t listed, so there’s no date for europe yet.

We’ll bring you more when we find it.

Even More Pokemon WiiWare

As reported here the other day, rumours have been abound as to whether the three Myster Dungeon WiiWare games were real or if the scan was a photoshot fake. Today, the Official Japanese Pokemon Site officially announced the 3 games are coming to WiiWare in Japan. The games are titled Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Keep Going! Blazing Adventure Squad!, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Let’s Go! Stormy Adventure Squad! and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Go For It! Light Adventure Squad!

Nothing else is known about these games for now, we’ll let you know when it is known.

Brand New TPC News Blog

The 4th version of The Pika Club’s website has been in development for a while now, and it’s still in development. This is not v4, just to clear things up. However, while we wait for development for v4 to finish, we’ve thought we’d put something kind of content for people to view.


So here’s our News Blog. In it, we’ll try to bring you all the latest news that’s going on in the Pokemon world… like when Pokemon Platinum will be released in America (March 22nd) and Europe (TBA), about the new Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game announced (Explorers of the sky, due out sometime this Spring in Japan, no release plans for other regions), new Trading Card Game set, called Platinum, being released 11th February, and the 11th movie, Giratina and the Sky Warrior being released on DVD in America in spring (no specific date yet. Also don’t bother asking for European release dates, we’re still waiting for the 7th movie to be released over here)


Well, they’re just a few examples of the kind of news we hope to bring.


And on a side note, a couple of years ago, we used to use the web address, then due to circumstances beyond our control we lost that one and had to use our current one of Well, the good news is that we now own again. Both links will lead to exactly the same site (currently .com redirects to but its good to know that all our old links out there on the web now work again and point back here.
