Pokemon off the Charts

For teh first time ever Pokemon is not on the Lycos top 50

Yahoo Press Release Excerpt:

For the first time in the history of The Lycos 50, Pokemon has fallen off the list after 136 weeks. Pokemon was the first-ever number one on The Lycos 50 when the list launched in Sept. 1999 and was the number one most searched term for the year ending 1999. From January 4 through July 25, 2000, Pokemon camped out in the number one spot. But in June 2000, Pokemon began to drop, plunging to the bottom of the list in Dec. 2001. The demise of Pokemon means only one Japanese cartoon remains on the list: the unstoppable Dragonball (#3). But Japanese anime fans, fear not. The new toy-turned-cartoon Zoids is not far from The Lycos 50, rising to number 57 this week.
