I've had a LOT less time to play than I would like (Why the hell did they release it a week before finals? Bah!), but so far, I can say that I'm definitely going to get my money's worth. Considering how little time I've invested, how little of the game I've seen, and yet how much fun I've had with it, it just wouldn't make sense if it ended up not being worth it.

I honestly didn't check. We went straight to the DS games section (which has been expanded at Fry's, w00t for Nintendo shelf space for once), scooped up the games, and went right out the door.

I also have to point out just how great the Global Trade Center is, I just tried it out now, looking for a Chimchar, as it's the one starter I don't have, and within two minutes someone sent me one for my Bidoof, AND it had Pokérus.

Probably hax.. can't complain, but still.

According to the GS boards, everyone is having this experience. There are two theories: Really nice Japanese players who bred a ton of starters, or Nintendo is putting this pokemon out as gifts.

So far I love Pokemon Pearl.  I got both and gave one to my partner and he really likes it too!

The headset works great playing the WiFi part.  I haven't really had a chance to play it much since the first day but I plan to play some tonight and get my second badge!

My friend code is posted on the pokemon friend code post so if you are interested in battling let me know just know that I am an expert in psyhic pokemon and ghost pokemon :)


Thank you, as you have just been Lazered

This is annoying. i want it :( jus wondering if anyone knows whether i can access the american wifi/global trade centre in england? otherwise seems pointless importing it
Apparently the warning "do not try this at home" really means "do not try this at all"... no one told ME!!!!

lol, I didn't think about pre-ordering it.

Now I have to wait for the next shipment. By then all of you will be so powerful it will be pointless to play  :-\

In case anyone is still wondering about my escapades, I am pleased to inform you that I did in fact get Pokemon Diamond. I've been playing it a lot and now have 5 Gym Badges, soon to be 6. I caught quite a bit of pokemon too, but for now I'm getting my badges. I haven't tried the GTC yet, but am bound to sooner or later. And that's about it. If my router works, I'll post up my friend code.

I got Diamond version on Sunday, and after about 10 hours of light playing (doing other stuff at the same time) I have 2 badges. I like it so far, can't wait to try the Wi-Fi stuff.

Oh, and Buizel is my new favorite pokemon. Soo cute!
