  • PKMN.NET announced a new administrator. The administrator would be the person viewing the announcement.
  • The Pokémon Times changed their theme for the episode to Digimon.
  • Psypoke made several edits to their website.
    • Visitors either saw a dancing Psyduck-Slowpoke hybrid (named Psypoke) at the bottom of the screen, or would have a Seaking burst through the top of the page.
    • The forums were completely shuffled out of order. Furthermore, the icons and descriptions did not match up with the forum listed, and clicking the link to enter a forum would send the visitor to a random forum.
    • An interview with an exclusive story on a supposed Pokémon Opal version was posted to the site.
    • After the interview was posted, the site instead displayed a notice of closure following a cease-and-desist notification in relation to the interview. After 15 seconds, the visitor was returned to the real main page.
