It'd be sweet if P&D had Wi-Fi play.


Battling anyone in the world..... :o

Doesn't it?

I thought so. Here's what's on Wikipedia about it.

"Diamond and Pearl employ support for the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, allowing players to trade, battle and communicate through “voice chat” online. The main system for trade is Global Trade Station trading system. This allows trainers to search for any Pokémon they have seen from a world-wide scale, with the resulting list showing all the people that are willing to trade that Pokémon, as well as the Pokémon they want in return for it"

Here's some links with info about it.

Yeah, it has Wi-Fi battling, but only with friend codes.

For a random match-up service, we're gonna have to wait for Battle Revolution.

Does Battle Revolution even have that?  If so that would at least be one thing it has going for it.
So far it just seems to be a stripped down version of Colosseum, with a very limited character creator.

June 25th for Europe.  Seems like they really are trying to stop people importing, it's a much sooner release date than normal.  I think we waited more than 8 months for some of the games.

And unfortunately for NOE, it's still cheaper and faster to import the games from the US.  I'll continue to import until we get a reason not to.  Considering we usually have to wait so long, you think they could include some of the promo Pokemon, since they don't even bother holding the events here anymore.

Will Australia get the US release or the Europe release I know typically we get Europe releases but thats to do with it being PAL stuff DSes are universal and typically Australia shares the region with the US reguarding online stuff.

Aye. That's been set since the 17th of December. hehe. I feel like a nerd. I was there  the very day they leaked it accidently, then on the 20th when they made it official.

This is technically about Pokemon Gold, but there isn't a thread for that - I just got ahold of a copy very cheaply and was wondering what people's top tips were. I kinda played a friend's copy of Red back in the day but never owned it myself so I'm not particularly experienced. For a person relatively new to pokemon, what's the best advice you can give?

Pay attention to pokemon's stats. If it's got good attack, teach it physical attacks. If it's good defense, send it out against physical attackers. Same with special attacks and special defense.

No matter how mighty Ursaring's attack power is, its Faint Attack will barely even register since Dark type attacks are special. Having the right moves is possibly the most important thing about pokemon.
Not a winner anymore.

When you get to the end of the game and get to the final area, theres a relatively rare rock/dark type pokemon whose name escapes me at the moment. Catch one, it'll eventually evolve intoa Tyranitar, which is totally kickass.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
