Pokemon Diamond/Pearl Damage Sheet

I have recently acquired a slick new Nintendo DS and will soon be playing the fairly new Pokemon Diamond game. This will be my first Pokemon video game and I’m actually quite excited…the game received an 8.5 from IGN along with a fairly ballsy review.

In preparation for the arrival of my game, I’ve done a little research into the Pokemon world (which I’ve always been a fan) to see how Pokemon creature types affect other Pokemon creature types. I found a nice table on Wikipedia and created my own sexy graphic that I can refer to whenever I want. Here it is:

Remember When

Remember when tv was good? Remember when the NES was the hottest thing on the market? When everyone knew the theme song to Gummi Bears and every kid wanted Hungry Hungry Hippos?

I often think back to my childhood and remember when the cartoons were actually worth watching. They were fun, colorful, and generally wholesome. Good times. Remember these: He-Man, Ducktales, Gummi Bears, The Wuzzles, The Smurfs, Shirttales, Teddy Ruxpin, Jem and the Holograms, Strawberry Shortcake, Rainbow Brite.

Well, I came across a site (RetroJunk) that allows you to walk down memory lane and view the intros to many of your favorite childhood shows from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s! Cartoons and regular shows…plus it has some retro commercials (including a couple about NES and its games). As my wife and I were perusing the shows/commercials, we found ourselves remembering shows that we had forgotten about completely! There are some obscure ones there (Foofur, Count Duckula, Eureeka’s Castle, Denver the Last Dinosaur, etc :D) Check out the site…its awesome ;)

Once cartoon that I’m bummed that they don’t have on there is the Monchhichi’s…that cartoon is sooo incredibly hard to find information on. It must have been pretty short lived. Anyone else remember that one?
