New Trailer for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

By Cat333Pokémon on June 10, 2014

A new official trailer has been released for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, showing off the similar graphics to Pokémon X/Y, the starters' new mega evolutions, and an introduction not too dissimilar to an original trailer for Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire.

In addition, the release date was confirmed as Friday, November 21, 2014.



Pokémon listing on profile updated

By Cat333Pokémon on May 19, 2014

Until now, the "Pokémon Team" listing on profiles has only had Pokémon up to Gen V listed (mostly because I forgot to update it). It now has Gen VI Pokémon in the lists.

Gen III Remakes Confirmed. No, Seriously.

By GrassPokemonFTW on May 7, 2014

Recently revealed were the 3DS remakes for Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. These games are planned for release in November 2014. Like Pokémon X and Y, these games will be released worldwide simultaneously.


A trailer has been released at Pokemon.com revealing the boxart and approximate release date. The cover Pokemon are Groudon and Kyogre, as expected. Though they do look slightly different...Mega Evolutions, perhaps?

Pokémon Art Academy coming to 3DS on June 16 in Japan, Fall in US

By Cat333Pokémon on April 29, 2014

This June, a new title is coming to the 3DS in Japan and America, called Pokémon Art Academy (ポケモンアートアカデミー). The software is dubbed as a drawing step-by-step drawing utility (using the term oekaki in Japan) to learn how to draw Pokémon. Here are a few samples created using the software.

Announcing the Buizel.Net URL Shortening Service!

By Cat333Pokémon on April 1, 2014

After many years, my old domain, Buizel.Net, has returned as a URL shortening service, much in the same vein as services like TinyURL and Bitly. What sets mine apart is the unique ability to preview the contents of the site without needing to visit it, saving you the trouble of loading massive pages only to be greeted with a small image or with a long advertisement before a video. The service scans the linked page for prominent media files and proxies them directly to you for speedy access. I've also added it atop the forum for the time being to get folks to try it out. :)

I cannot guarantee that the service always works properly, of course, and there's always a chance for something to go wrong. At the moment, an HTML5-compatible browser with MPEG-4/H.264 and MP3 capabilities is required to enjoy most features of the service.

Check out its ability to work with YouTube videos (be sure to watch it all the way through):

Reply with your best links created through the service! I'd love to hear your feedback. :D



Server move complete - REPORT BUGS HERE

By Cat333Pokémon on March 17, 2014

We have completed another server move for the first time in several years. While I gradually go about fixing things up, please use this thread to report anything broken on Victory Road or any of its satellite websites. If something is broken such that it causes a security problem, please send me a PM instead.



Advertisements removed for members

By Cat333Pokémon on March 9, 2014

With the dwindling revenue from the advertisements, I decided it would be in my best interest to remove all ads for all registered members with verified e-mail addresses, regardless of number of posts. This includes the persistent banner ad that was previously shown at the bottom of the page.

Enjoy an ad-free Victory Road!



Server move planned to occur within 7 to 14 days

By Cat333Pokémon on March 9, 2014

That's right, it's that time again. The Victory Road Network (Victory Road, Floatzel.Net, VRAC, and Pokékaki) will be moving to a new web host within the next two weeks, starting somewhere around March 17th. Unlike previous moves, we are scaling down to a server with fewer resources. As much as I appreciate the service HiVelocity has provided, their services simply are on a higher tier than what I require.

If anyone from HiVelocity does happen to read this, thank you for your years of great service. I will be sure to recommend you for anyone requiring a quality dedicated server.

For the ex-users of VRIM
While I have fully closed down public access to VRIM in July 2012 and phased it out into 2013, the database is still up. This will change prior to the server move, and I will finally completely erase it from the server. (I will keep a backup of the public rooms.) If anyone would like to request private message or private room logs, please send me a PM on or before March 14. If you wait any longer, I may not be able to recover the messages.

Diancie Officially Revealed; To Star in Upcoming Movie

By GrassPokemonFTW on February 11, 2014

Due to GTS leaks beforehand, we were already aware of the Gen VI event legends, Diancie, Hoopa, and Volcanion. The first of the three has been officially revealed in a recent release of the newest issue of CoroCoro magazine; Diancie.

To reiterate points that may or may not already be known: Diancie is a Rock/Fairy-type Pokémon. It is classified as the Jewel Pokémon and is Pokémon #719 in the Pokédex. The description next to Diancie's official Sugimori art reads: "In battle, it creates a bunch of diamonds from both of its hands to protect itself."

Diancie has also been revealed to star in the next Pokémon movie, which has subsequently been given the full title The Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie. This movie has already been confirmed to feature the Kalos legends Xerneas and Yveltal, along with a number of Mega Evolutions.

As of yet, there is no information revolving around Diancie's distribution.

Below is the official Sugimori art of Diancie (left) and the new, official title of the upcoming movie (right).
