From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
April 1, 2007 was an April Fools' Day that fell on a Sunday.

- Pokémon.Marriland.com claimed to have unearthed information about the third game in the Generation IV series, which they called Pokémon Zircon. Before the real Pokémon Platinum boxart was revealed, many people thought that this "Zircon" boxart was that of Platinum. Ironically, much of the "information" Marriland provided turned out to be true.
- Serebii.net revealed a number of English names for Pokémon Diamond and Pearl towns, attacks, Abilities and items, which many incorrectly believed to be a hoax.
