    Talking GF/ Nintendo doesn't know what region Emerald is located in!?

    Ok, so I went to the Pokemon.com website to see if I could find any updates. Out of curiousity, I looked at the page for Pokemon Emerald. What I found was a funny/stupid typo or whatever. If you scroll down and click "Screenshot Gallery" which is located near the bottom right of the page, you see this description for one of the pictures: "The Kanto region has never looked better!". Wut? Link is attached to see it for yourself.

    And I quote: "Pokémon Emerald Version takes Trainers back to the land of Hoenn for an expanded adventure"

    However, with that one screenshot, that was probably a stock quote used for FRLG.

    Mistakes happen, but it's still a fail!

    I didn't know Pokemon.com encouraged glitching. Even though it is obviously Mewtwo in the picture.

    Oh, yeah.

    They called Staravia Staraptor in their news story for Jumping Rocket Ship.

    In the promotional images for D/P, they claimed Swallow was a new move.

    In the mailbag, they said Phione was a legendary.

    Epic fails, all of them.

    Some of these things really make me wonder who's putting them on the sites...

    Here's a failed advertisement:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jL4-YAwCZxs&feature=related

    They spell "Hoenn" as "HOEN".
    And my comment on it (under "sdkudrgn88"): So I wonder when they'll be going to the SINOH region.

    Also, they put the "Elite Four" in front of the Battle Frontier people.

    Although really, I think it's more of Kids' WB's problem, not 4Kids or Nintendo.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    In the 2nd images description it says "againts" instead of "against".
    Double fail.

    My 3rd Medalist Pokemon was Magikarp, and it earned that position alone with no other species.
    I have too many Bouncekarp.

    In the trainer store, there's a "Wooper" costume. It's actually a Quagsire.

    A few days ago on the featured Pokemon page, it said that Kangaskhan had Overgrow and Blaze as its abilities.

    So yeah, we can pretty much all agree how error-filled the official website is. Not really an error, but I still laughed at it:

    "Pokémon Box also lets you play Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire on your TV via GameCube, making it a versatile, must-have utility for all serious Pokémon Trainers."

    Yeah, I know they have to talk well about their own games and all, but that just made it sound like they were really desperate in making it sound like a game about storage is interesting. xD

    Pokemon.com is not a viable source for information, this is nothing new :p
