Sad to say...i gave up my pokemon adventuring with silver. At least no one will beat my red and silver teams. :D The most I can manage is watch the D/P series....whenever they get around to subbing it.

I actually got Diamond online from Japan a few months ago. It's pretty good, there are even some 3-D buildings in the game which surprised me. But I guess now they're on the DS so they should be doing that kind of stuff :p
But yeah, I just got all my badges yesterday since I didn't have much time to play before Spring Break ^^

I am excited!!!! I am not sure yet, I keep changing my mind.. One moment I think I want diamond then the next I want pearl.. I think I may end up randomly choosing the first one I see, hahaha. What do you think I should get?

I reserved Pearl version cause everyone else seems to be reserving Daimond. We should have some kind of MAL tourney a little while after it gets released.

I haven't looked into this much, but I did know it's release was soon and was considering getting it. I played the original pokemon from the day it was released in America (red version ftw), but haven't played another pokemon game since then.

If you all wouldn't mind, I have a few questions:

What kind of multiplayer functions will it have ? Being on the DS, the possiblities are pretty huge.

How "new and innovative" is it, or is it just like all the others ?

And if some of you would like (since you've done the research), what cool pokemon are game specific (here you should try and sway my decision as to which version I should buy) ?

ready go.

I wanna hear the tragic story behind that comment. Here, I'll start you off...

what happened to the one they gave you with the DS ?

There is no real "tragic" story. What happened was that I bought the thing used, because I didn't know that I needed a charger, and the people who sold it to me didn't ask or tell me. So then, then I ended up borrowing a charger from my friend who is using his sister's now (and this was back in November, I haven't found a charger, yet...). :/ And that's about it.

and if you don't have one of those (cause I dunno where you're from), I'm pretty sure you can get them online for about the same price.

awww!

Yes, I was fairly sure I was getting Pearl, but then somedays I feel like Diamond, but yeah, I think it shall be Pearl..

Speaking of reserving a game.. I should do that, maybe.. a lot of people play games around here.. Eh, I doubt it'll be that hard to get.

I agree aboutt he MAL Tourney, though!

Hey, Heather, where do you research? I generally go to serebii.net usually..

EDIT: Basically D/P uses WiFi to connect to the internet so you can play anyone.. And it changes the reason why pokemon have certain moves from type to special etc. hmm.. Go look up some screen shots.. I am sure this was a crapy explination..

Well I got Perl preordered and just waiting for sunday to come around.

I like pokemon in general but the last couple that came out where just stupid to me. I never did like an of the other ones that much. i just like the regular plaing stle from the orignal ones.

OH MAN, I'M PUMPED. It's gonna be INTENSE. I hope they expand on secret bases this time and have that multiple continent thing going that made GSC so awesome (they might have already confirmed it but I don't pay attention). I reserved Diamond.

If only my high school classmates played it.. then I could own them.. but instead the only one who I know is going to get it is my cousin who doesn't live THAT close, but not that far.. but now that it's online I don't have to wait for x-mas/easter/random times I see him to own him.. muahahah!

being in Europe is bad enough when it comes to games, and being in a damned city such as Haugesund is even worse...even if FFIII were out they probably would not have it anywhere near me ._.
But whatever, things can be ordered...

I still remember back when I got red version when it first came out :P Like every new set of the Gamefreak developed games I'm planning on picking one up.. probably Diamond but it's not a huge deal to me.

I got the Red version back in 7th grade (I think it was 7th grade... been a long time) the day it came out. Or at least, the first day they had it at the Target near me. The first pokemon games were so obscure, I seem to recall them not having it for the first week. I then proceeded to beat the game in a week.

I'm getting mine soon. However, I do have Japanese Pearl. lol Anyone with Wi-Fi access want a "Japanese" Pokemon? Anyway, I wouldn't mind battling anyone here over Wi-Fi once our teams are built up.

And there are a lot of things in this game. There's Wi-Fi of course, which is great if you can use it. There's Voice Chat over Wi-Fi. You can upload your team into the Battle Tower for people to fight over Wi-Fi. There that ghost in that one abandoned mansion with Rotum that totally freaked me out the first time. The Elite Four is actually quite difficult.

EDIT: If anyone wants game information and assistance, just go to Serebii.net. If you need Wi-Fi assistance, just go to NintendoWiFi.com.

And just for the heck of it, here's my Japanese Pearl information:

FC: 1890-5850-6106
Name: CHRIS

I have beaten the game, but I don't really have much in it. Only 69 Pokemon caught I believe. I'll de better in my English version.

Just get an M3, or some other solution.

It's a must for Europeans anyway, since game companies all seem to share the same "humiliate and screw over Europe" fetish.

And to ease your conscience, just buy what you really like.

Oh, I picked that penguin to be my pokemon, but besides being cute and well rounded, he doesn't really seem to... own.

i used to be such a huge pokemon fan.

dunno about diamond/pearl though. don't have a DS, and haven't exactly heard anything new here in terms of gameplay.
