    For Japan, no, the Pokemon Company hasn't revealed any information about new games for the Pokemon franchise. However you can expect Pokemon Ranger: Sahdows of Almia to be coming out in the United States in November 10th and Pokemon Platinum should be released in the United States in about 7 to 8 months.

    "For all the other Evolution methods it is as it is in the games. If a Pokemon needs an Evolutionary Stone to evolve in the game, then it'll need one to evolve in the anime. If it needs to be at a certain location to evolve in the game, then it'll need to be at that location to evolve in the anime. I think you get the main idea. There was an exception for the Evolutionary Stone, however it occured in Season 1 which could possibly mean that it was just a mistake in the anime. Also this rule might be ignored if the Pokemon is needed to evolve if it is importent to the storyline, but this has rarely happened except in that one case."

    What is the one case you are talking about?

    It was in EP043 "The March of the Exeggutor Squad", Melvin's Exeggute managed to evolve into an Exeggutor without a Leaf Stone.

    The Pokemon Mystery Dungeon specials are just that: one episode specials. There are no plans to make them into a spinoff series.

    Why must zoey keep ruining lives?

    No... here's the real question (although I'd like an answer to the above) :

    Since I never watched any of the Avanced saga AT ALL = No Hoenn, but I did see part of the first contest episode "All Things Bright and Beautifly!" (I believe it was called). So when exactly did the show change the contest layout? 'Cuz when I saw the Jubilife Super Contest, I was like "Wow, these are way better."

    Because Zoey is a SOB.

    Real Answer To Real Question: The only difference from the Hoenn & Kanto Contest to the Sinnoh Contests is that in Sinnoh you dress up for Contests. Other then that nothing is that different. The grapphics for the attacks have gotten better if that is what your getting at, but that is simply because at time goes on they begin to incorporate better technology for better graphics.

    They either didn't get around to it or since they were originally just specials and have no effect on the storyline, so there is no need to have them in a DVD set.

    Well so far we know she has a Glameow, but other then that we don't know. In the games she has a Kangaskhan named Jumpy she enters Contest with, but we don't know if this true for the one in the anime. Though in DP095 Johanna's rival Yuri will be appearing, so there might be a flashback sequence which could possibly show or not Johanna's other Pokemon (if she has any).

    And it really depends on what you mean by the Diamond and Pearl Song:

    Japanese Opener for the 10th Season: Together
    Dub Opener for the 10th Season (Diamond and Pearl): Diamond and Pearl
    Japanese Opener for the 11th Season: Together
    Dub Opener for the 11th Season (Battle Dimensions): We Will Be Heroes

    True, but they also use the same advance graphics as the attacks do, so it falls under the "better graphics" catagory.

    I believe in the original they poorly explained that the forest was covered in leaf stone "pieces." (In the original, there was a sign that showed a leaf stone, and Exeggutor and an Exeggcute). It's similar to that Johto episode "Whichever Way the Wind Blows" they don't need a whole stone to evolve, just the radiation from the stone to evolve, even if they don't properly explain it.

    True, but like you said it was poorly explained. The forest being named "Leaf Forest" and that sign you said were hints to that, but as long as a character didn't mention this then we cannot truely know if that was the initial purpose (probably was, but still).
