I have moved the entire chatroom archive to a new table, so the main room doesn't lag like it used to. I plan on doing this about every 50,000 messages to prevent massive lag like we had recently. The archive can now be accessed from here:
At the moment, the main room stats don't appear anywhere, but I'm working on getting those added. The archives for the other rooms hasn't yet been setup, but it will soon. In addition, archives for the other rooms, especially /b/uizel, will be added in the future so that lag can be decreased even more.
Edit: New stuff - statistics for the archived Main room!
Don't worry, I'll get to making these pages look nicer.

Hello, one and all.
The Victory Road Gym League has recently received a good amount of changes to ensure it runs smoothly and efficiently. Here's a list of the updates which took place:
-Promotion of GL staff members
After careful consideration of several criteria I had in mind, I found out 3 members who would work pretty well as GL staff members. The newly-promoted members are Alakazamaster, Sunny and The Spirit of Time. Not only will they now help in the decision-making process and several discussions concerning the League, they will also assist in running it successfully with me. This includes settling problems, editing unofficial gyms and adding comments about them, closing/opening gyms upon request, as well as many other things. So congratulations guys - you all deserve this position.
-Elimination of inactive/unofficial/poorly-made gyms
It has come to my attention, after reading some posts concerning the VRGL on the forums, that it is cluttered with too many unneeded/inactive gyms. The GL staff members and I had a great amount of time discussing this issue and deciding upon the gyms to stay in the League. The several criteria was taken into consideration:
-Activity of gym + member
-General structure of gym
-No. of battles made
Based upon those matters, the list of gym leaders that were eliminated were very sensibly chosen among us. I guarantee you 100% that no one's gym has been removed unnecessarily/unfairly because this issue, in particular, was the thing which took most of our time. If you, for any reason, feel that your gym has been unfairly eliminated, please do not hesitate to send me a PM, provided you present acceptable reasons as to why you shouldn't have been removed. I will not accept such like posts in this thread, as they will be completely disregarded and subsequently deleted.
Anyways, here's the final list of Victory Road's offical gym leaders:
If your gym was eliminated, do not feel sad or angry about it. In fact, I encourage you all to challenge the gym leaders and try to beat them all because we surely would love to see more activity in this part of the forums. If you are still ambitious for this position, try to identify any flaws with your previous gym and plan how you'll fix them if you become a gym leader once again. Then you should aim to substitute a gym leader by winning 2 Pokémon tournaments or defeating all gym leaders. The GL staff and I will gladly give you advice on any matter concerning this issue.
-Minor updates to some gyms
To ensure that an official image of the gyms is displayed to any person in the forums, all the gyms now follow the same title scheme. In addition, some gyms have been updated/edited so that they meet the wanted requirements of a well-structured gym. This included the removal of some rules, general edits to spelling/grammar and, in some cases, some re-structuring here and there. Don't worry - I made sure the gyms aren't changed very much so that you still feel responsible for them.
-The guide has been updated with the changes that took place in the League
Kindly have a look at it, as several rules have been changed/removed.
(For instance, gym leaders can now battle each other, earn one another's badges and receive prize Pokémon/items. There are other changes as well.)
And well, that's about it. I've planned and worked very hard to make sure everyone gets a positive experience out of the Victory Road Gym League. Thanks for reading this announcement, and I hope you enjoy the updated system.

The New Pokémon Sunday was released today. Nothing was released today that we already didn't know about except for 4 silhouettes of the 7 new Pokémon that were released yesterday. From the 4 new silhouettes announce today we assume that next week will only show the other 3 Pokémon therefore, next Pokémon Sunday's episode will not tell us anything new. There have also been many things Pokémon fans have been finding over the past few days and Pokémon Black and White: some error fixes, news, etc. I have browsed upon Pokébeach today who have all the errors and news summed up in a big paragraph. Here they are:
* Zorua and Zoroark are event-exclusive Pokemon. They do not appear during normal gameplay, at least in Black and White. Therefore, you can only get the two if you preorder a ticket to The Ruler of Illusions: Zoroark and trade over one of the shiny Legendary Beasts (to encounter Zoroark) and if you download the movie Celebi from the theaters and trade it over (to get Zorua).
* Zoroark can learn a new attack called "Night Burst," which lowers the opponent's accuracy. It learns the attack at a high level.
* The event Zoroark you can obtain will know Fury Swipes, Faint Attack, Scary Face, and Taunt.
* Zorua has Scratch, Leer, Pursuit, and Fake Tears.
* The new ability of Meguroko, the Desert Crocodile Pokemon, should be translated as "Overconfidence" rather than "Earthquake Spiral." The ability increases its Attack stat when it Knocks Out a Pokemon.
* Zekrom's ability is named "Teravoltage," not "Terra Voltage." "Tera" is a prefix that means one trillion. Does this mean it can generate a trillion volts of electricity with its tail generator?
* There is a new indicator that shows you the status of the weather, such as if it's raining.
* The gold building in the Reshiram scan (that looks honey-covered) is described as being shaped like a bee's nest.
* The chinchilla is spelled "Chiraamii," not Chiramii.
* The pink blob with floral patterns is spelled "Munna."

In light of some strange rumors spreading around regarding Pokémon Black and White monsters being available in fourth generation games, especially HeartGold and SoulSilver, I had to update my Pokémon Rumors page with this new information. Check out the one at the top for more details.
I also did massive updates to the Pokémon Black and White page: revealed the seven new monsters, put up the CoroCoro scans, and added data for Reshiram and Zekrom.
Cat333Pokémon on June 11, 2010
Leaks from CoroCoro reveal two new Pokémon: a mouse named チラーミィ Chiramii (or Chiraamii) and an unseen Pokémon named ムンナ Munna. An additional scan shows a bird Pokémon without a name.
Update: Another Pokémon, ギアル Giaru (Gear) was revealed. The bird is named マメパト Mamepato.
Update 2: Three more - シママ Shimama, ヒヒダルマ Hihidaruma, and メグロコ Megaroko.
Update 3: Higher quality magazine scans here!
Update 4: It is confirmed that the other type of Reshiram is Fire, while Zekrom is Dragon/Electric.
The Pokémon Black and White page will continue being updated.
Also, an image of the Reshiram battle, showing the official sprite, has been revealed
