The future of PKMN.NET detailed within!

APRIL FOOLS... you won't be surprised to hear.

Now, speaking as co-owner of the site (and hence your ruling lord), I know some of you have been wondering what will happen to the site following all the recent changes.

Well now the changes are all finalised and emerging, I'm delighted to announce that PKMN.NET will be moving away from Pokémon slightly in the coming years. Not completely you understand, but we plan to become the ultimate authority on strictly Generation IV. That is we will continue to provide cutting edge debate and analysis and top quality content on DPPt and HGSS, but clearing all other content to provide space for the second, and most exciting, part of our relaunch.

Obviously, as the above completely undoctored photo confirms, Wayne Rooney of Manchester United fame has always been a secret Pokémon addict, and to celebrate this we will use the freed up space to host a wide range of Wayne Rooney content. We aim to become the No. 1 Wayne Rooney fansite on the internet, with up to date news on the matches he plays, his recent news and daily photos on what the sexy beast has been up to. We do hope to start this move at some point this April.

Fools who call themselves "die hard Pokémon fans" will no doubt criticise us for this move, but we generally believe that this move will move us into a whole new league in terms of net revenue and provide a new, fresh and most importantly of all, exciting new outlook on Pokémon and of course Wayne Rooney. Rather than consistently reading "wots ur favrut pokemn" as the latest forum topic, imagine seeing "wots rooneys fav pkmn" instead! The possibilities are endless!

We hope you'll continue to support PKMN.NET in the many exciting months ahead :)

I can see why april fools has been significantly toned down from a previous one based on what I have read. Nice joke though. If no-one already has, this is so becoming a topic
