W00t, Gamefly shipped it out. So I should get it this week.

Anyway, as for voice chat, is there a way to use it with out buying the head set?

I've used it without a headset. You can speak into it normaly and the sound quality is suprisingly decent.

What good is that? You can't transfer from anything pre-dating ruby/sapphire.

Is there a "wanted" system for wi-fi trading as well?
No way dude, you're trolling me.

That would be cool, like the bark mode in Nintedogs.

Just walk around with your DS in sleep mode

(Not sure if this is a feature, but would be cool)

No I mean like in wifi you say "I will trade a [Pokémon] for a [Pokémon]" and wait a while, when somebody responds you trade with them.

That's what the Global Trade System is.  You list the Pokemon you're looking for, and what gender, level, etc you want it to be, and then just leave it for someone to reply.  You don't need friend codes for this, but you can't communicate with anyone through it.  It does seem to be rather effective at the moment though, like I mentioned before, I was able to get a Chimchar within minutes.

I'm really loving the game so far, it's definetely the biggest game by far.  They brought back a lot of great features from the older games, and some really cool new ones I never even knew about.  I'am a little disapointed they went with the "classic" Pokedex, over the far improved encylopedia style we saw in Fire Red/Leaf Green.  But all things considered, there's very little to complain about.

Oh, and while I was exploring Iron Mountain, I came across a shining Graveller.   :)
Has anyone else seen any rare coloured Pokemon yet?

I've never even ran into a shiny in any pokemon game ever.

So, has anyone had a live chat over wifi yet?
