    I was just browsing around my favorite Internet Gaming site, GameFAQs.com - a site I've never really paid much attention to the ads before on... and what pops up?

    An ad for Dragon Pre-release tournaments...

    Neat, eh?

    Cool. Wizards stopped advertizing after Jungle, then started again at neo Destiny then stopped again. So Nintendo made a R/S commercial and a Dragon ad, thats neat.

    We will occasionally advertise for promotional Pokemon events - we're looking at different ways of getting the message out.

    You'll probably being seeing more ads from us in different TCG magazines, and on other websites that we think will reach ours fans - if we're missing something, let us know. (Contact us through our e-mail, preferably - I don't want to abuse the hospitality shown by Team Compendium here.)

    Go ahead, abuse us. Everyone else has. ;)

    I'd suggest advertising in more general interest kids mags, too. After all, your main purchasing base and best area for expansion is not the existing TCG players. Its the Kids WB audience.

    Then, once they get the cards, get them playing with them and not just sticking them in binders.

    Maybe run a promotion advertized in a broad way that they have to get to a League to redeem. But you'd better make sure you have a good way to direct them to leagues!

    Haha, really, did you see an ad for the Dragon's Pre release on gamefaqs? Gamefaqs is my homepage, and I never saw any ad ever related to Pokemon on the site!

    I dunno if this will work, but here's a link to the image...

    I'm guessing it's okay to post ideas of where to advertise here then...
    I'd really look at Pojo.com - the site has supported Pokémon since... forever. When I got back into having anything to do with Pokémon, they were the first place I looked for info and where I usually advise others to look.

    Nintendo has been advertising on Pojo's Message Board and ZEO. WHich is kind of like preaching to the gospel.

    Ah, cool. I don't go to the Pojo boards often, so I didn't know. ;)

    What about good ol' PlanetGameCube.com?

    I don't know what other's say but I am happier now with Nintendo than anytime with WotC. Nintendo just seems to care so much about the players, and you see it in the cool ways they show it.

    Oh yes, Nintendo cares so much that they decided to postpone the release of the "Game & Watch-e" cards (which were supposed to ship on November 17th) in favor of EX Dragon.

    Sorry for posting off-topic, but I just had to let out some steam. >:-(

    Ok, well. I understand we all need to blow off steam at times. As is why I fence. Haha I let off steam by stabbing people. (Legally of course for any of you that might be reaching for the nearest phone to call the police). I personally Love what Nintendo is doing. I think they're doing a great job at marketing their product, advertising their tournaments. And everything else inbetween. I love it. I enjoyed all the things that Wizards did for us. I appreciate them for all the tournaments. (Some could say that I just say that because I do play Magic as a side game) But personally they did a good job and I thank all the hard workers there that made the PTCG a great game. But as time goes on some things must change and in this sense that means the company that puts out the game. I personally can't wait to see the new tournament system including the Pro Points(sounds fun) Finally I have a chance at going to major tournaments like the Stadium Challenges and possibly Worlds. I've always been the North Carolina circuit player since I've never gotten the support from my parents to drive me out of state. But now that all changes since I get my license next week. That is if I don't hit anyone during the 3 Point Turn. As I was saying. I love what Nintendo is doing. I might suck at Limited for right now since The Dragon PreRelease was my first try at Sealed Deck. But I don't think that Wizards if they were able to keep the game would ever try to hold a PreRelease Tournament for the PTCG. It's not something that they would do for the PTCG. So I say this. Thank you Nintendo and Master Trainer Jimmer, I can't wait till next year starts and I finally get to travel for tournaments. Thank you for helping all us players keep this game alive. Thank you.

    Nintendo does care! why do ya think they bought the game in the first place! just to let it go? neva! if it's one of their products; & it works well with the market, they'll keep it out there. & heh, they've got good games out there too!
