Pokémon Is Still Popular!

Well, at least in Japan. The new Pokémon Diamond/Pearl for the Nintendo DS sold two million copies, and half a million limited edition DS Lites in just a few hours. Click here for more pictures of people standing in line.

Here’s a video of what a real life Pika (Pikachu) looks like:

  1. Pokeman is crazy in Japan more then even Hello Kitty! Its just crazes these japanese go through!

    The pika is pretty funny looking animal! hehehe

  2. I’m a huge fan of Pokemon and still am…but only for the games not for the trade cards and stuff. I played Pokemon before it became a big hit in the US and in Kuwait.

    I confess that I am an avid gamer of Pokemon, I tend to raise the Ultimate team by following very advance methods that a newbie cannot even follow. In my Emerald version, I spent more than 200 hours of playtime and in Silver version I have played probably 216 hours with 249 Pokemon collected (The only Pokemon I’m missing are Mew and Celebi because you can only get them in Nintendo events).

    I cannot wait for D/P to release especially with Online play and all, making trading a lot easier.
