Goon: "In return, we'll refrain from inflicting MASSIVE DAMAGE on you and your assistant."

When was this game translated?

I got Pearl today. Just walked in and picked up an import copy off the shelf.

I love living in a town with four videogame stores on the same street.
Not a winner anymore.

I think I've seen a few video game joke references in this game.

I've seen Noob used a few times, the aformentioned "MASSIVE DAMAGE", a "A winner is you!", and at least one other I forget... oh yeah, owned was used once.

words

Point 1) He starts nearly every update with "Well,". That irritates me. Pet hate, but still.

Point 2) He claims all news/sprites/everything is EXCLUSIVE to his site. If anyone else happens to get the same news/data on their site, then Serebii promptly launches into a capslock-infused tirade and sets his sycophant legions upon the offending site until they eventually have to parley with him because of the sheer irritation it causes. Never mind the fact that news/sprites about the same game are going to be the same anyway..

Point 3) Publishes nearly every hoax on the front page as gospel fact and then denies ever believing it when it's disproved.

Point 4) Updates every day in a blog-like fashion that he's too busy to update, complete with bowing-and-scraping levels of apologies, as if the world is ending because he didn't update.

Point 5) As stated, the site itself is horrifying. Godawful layout, heinous colouration, intentionally crippled functionality (ever heard of View Source Code, einstein?) , barely functional server/bandwidth, massive serebii logos everywhere.

Point 6) The forums are awful. No, seriously, they're absolutley terrifying. Worse than GameFAQs awful. Threads about.. certain misapplications of the human sex drive that will not be elaborated upon go completley unmoderated, and even protected by moderators.

Point 7) The chatroom, in addition to being both awful, AND locked down by insanely overzealous ban-bots, AND scripted to mass-praise/acknowledge serebii when he enters the room (I am NOT kidding on that, not even exaggerating), isn't even useful in any way due to people trash talking and shouting down anyone asking for help.

Need I go on? There's so many reasons hate him specifically, then many more to hate his site. I'd have used harsher words in my first post but i'm not sure there are any quite cutting enough that wouldn't get deleted. But the raw content on his site, yeah that's alright. I was planning to make my own kind of pokedex thing at one point, but never got around to it. You just know that modo would instantly start screaming about stolen info and all such as that.

http://www.videogamesplus.ca/ is the site I used to import into the UK.  I believe they also ship to Australia.

Money or postal order means u go to you local post office and ask for a money order it's like a check they ask you what the value of the money order is and what not then you mail the money order to the the people you are paying and they send you what you order.

I used a money order to for buying games and my Nintendo wifi adapter although I neevr had to do it for shipping overseas but should be the same they may need to make sure the currency conversions are ok not sure though.

so, you give money to the post-office, they make a 'check'  kind of thing, they mail that to the people i am paying, and they send back what i order?

Thats cool I'll be heading to the post office tomorrow as well I'm not sure how the currency conversion works for it but hopefully the post office will be half way helpful.

on the website theres an option to see prices how you want :) basically it costs about Ł22! and then Ł3 postage and packaging! not only are we gettin it b4 UK release date, but its cheaper than it would be. whoop.
Apparently the warning "do not try this at home" really means "do not try this at all"... no one told ME!!!!
