Wow, has Fox had his little visor thing over his eye in the other images? This is a pretty good update, another legendary to avoid like the plague. I wonder if he just walks back and forth, or just falls off the stage or something.

Now if they manage to include Nintendogs and Dr Kawashima in this game, it will expand its appeal to the widest crowd ever.

I wouldn't be surprised if one of the secret characters is Lucario, one of the new pokemon from Diamond/Pearl.

Dr Kawashima? It's been said before, but he could be the head to the hands. Oh and the Fox visor thing? I checked in the Delfino Plaza screens, and it seems like the little screen is over his eye permanently.

chikorita's looking pretty damn good, as are the new leaves

Nah, wouldn't be surprised if they updated with a new pokemon that can come out of the ball along with some other random thing. Even including D/P legendaries it wouldn't take long to get through them all.

Although it's virtually the same looking at the SSBM level it's still new for this game, I haven't seen it before (is it in the trailers? I don't remember).

Actually, you're wrong on several counts.

First, case law does not present a precedent There is no law that specifically makes hotlinking illegal so the only way it could hypothetically be illegal is if case law represented a clear precedent. It doesn't.

Deep linking was nominally protected in Kelly v. Arriba Soft Corporation; although deep linking and hotlinking are not necessarily similar, it does show one important thing. Hotlinking or deep linking does not always or automatically constitute copyright infringement.

Perfect 10 v. Google actually ruled against the above finding and then was overturned on appeal. So that's three conflicting findings, right there. However, there's another aspect to Perfect 10 v. Google that is useful to look at; judges debated the merits of Framing, the court found that framing, or putting a distant website's deep linked page inside a frame within Google as a broader site was legal, specifically reasoning that since Google only provided the instruction for the user's browser to fetch the files, they could not be held liable. Consider applying this test to hotlinking.

There has never been a ruling in regards to hotlinking that addresses the issue of whether or not "bandwidth leeching" is illegal. Is seems obvious that this is the issue you are referring to, since only a nutcase would be claiming that Gaffers leeching images are profiting, claiming ownership, or infringing copyright.

Second, hotlinking is not always illegal. Even if you accept that hotlinking can be illegal, it is not automatically so. Many companies can and do consent to hotlinking. The most obvious example is a banner ad or an image host. Evidently, then, there must be some way to determine whether or not it is illegal in the case of an individual server. From a due dilligence point of view, I would argue that .htaccess / referrer denial would be considered an acceptable metric. At the bare minimum something like a robots.txt denial or other instruction to prevent content access, or a META noindex tag on the page hosting the images, or some sort of indication that the site does not want you to leech will be needed.

If I remember correctly, the anti-leeching rule on GAF is primarily to prevent the blowback if a leeched image gets swapped with Goatse or PAIN or a password-security image that causes every reading of the thread ot have to cancel out of a password dialog. None of these will ever happen.

There's a clear difference between image leeching product images from Amazon.com or screenshots from GameSpot or the Smash Brothers website and image leeching for some guy's little server where it's going to cost him or her money.

Of course, having this particular Pokémon appear at the most critical of times is in keeping with Murphy’s Law.

We haven't seen much from Pokémon stadium, so it could still be there. If you look at last screenshot posted it looks like there is an edge to an rectangular object off to the right, this could be where the screen is.

It's not quite the reconfirmation of Jigglypuff that I wanted, but I'll settle. Glad to see they're still generally keeping with the proper size scale for Poke Ball releases. ("Generally" because things like Goldeen and Chikorita are still too big, but Groudon and other legendaries have typically been done at the right size.) I wonder if they'll put Wailord in since it's the largest of all...

Goodness, I actually had to wiki Murphy’s Law and then it says it a common western saying.

For some reason this stage reminded me of the crowd cheerings. They need the announcer to do more during gameplay this time around he could say some really hilarious stuff, maybe be the loud sarcastic overplaying type.

Yoshi Story Ending:

This is coming from someone who has never heard the ending theme to Yoshi Story.

"DEE EEEEEE NOOOOOOOO"
->
"THE EEEEEND NOOOOOOOO"
->
"THE END"

Its pretty catchy.

Pokeballs:

Why does the pokeball look so low poly in the screenshot? Groudon is massive...

Probably cos of the amount of crap that can happen on the screen at one time. They should just make them smaller. It looks better and it also hides the low poly better.

Guys, the pokeball is not as big as you think. Remeber in Melee, where you could pause the game and pan the camera around to the side? They're doing something similar in most of these shots. That's why it looks like the pokeball is coming toward the screen. It'll look fine during normal gameplay.

I think people realize that and are just saying it should be smaller on the screenshot to hide the fact that it's so low poly.
