It has been reported that you CAN'T transfer Pokemon from the US 3rd generation games to the Japanese Diamond/Pearl.

Take from that what you will.

Probably the same for UK version.

Oh, shucks, I'll just have to import it from America and get it before everyone else, then.

Edit: Although, Japanese versions of Pokémon never were compatable with US versions, but UK ones always are. Well, Advance Wars was enough confirmation for me, I'll definitely import.

And I thought I was said and pathetic for still following the serious. ;) Not really.

But is it just me or is the Electabuzz evolution ugly as hell?

Besides that some of this game looks interesting, the only thing I see missing is a really good Dragon Type. There haven't been that many good Dragon types since Dragonite and Charizard (in my opinion), well except maybe Flygon but he looks like an Insect more then looking like a Dragon. They need another Dratini-type lineage in the game. Although I rarely used Dragonite for any battles, I almost always made sure I had one in my PokeBox.

Sorry if this was already said recently, but I didn't feel like digging through the thread.
Any more word on what the US and Eurpean release dates will be?

Ok first of all Charizard is a Fire/flying type. Second whats wrong with Bagon-Shellgon-Salamance?

Don't forget Kingdra.

And they have a new Ground/Dragon in D/P, with the same stat total as Dragonite/Salamence.

Yeah Kingdra's water type negates its weakness to ice if that doesn't make it kick arse I don't know what does.

Kingdra's Dragon type negates its weaknesses to electric and grass-type attacks too.

...

Why the hell don't I have a Kingdra?

And Bippa looks like a beaver, not a racoon: it evolves into a normal/water type.

It's only weakness is to other dragon attacks. Basically make sure you have Dragon claw on you. :)

I really like Electabuzz' evolution, and most of the old Pokemons new evolutions, they've helped made a lot of the old crappy Pokemon really good.  Magmars evolution on the otherhand looks terrible, even if they've made him one of the best fire Pokemon in the game, why the hell did he turn in to a large fat man?

And in my opinion there are already plenty of Dragon types, if anything too many.  Kingdra and Altaria really don't look like Dragons at all, and only seemed to get the type for the sake of it.  Salamance and Flygon are really good though, and the new Shark/Dragon thing looks like it'll be pretty good.  Dragons are supposed to be rare, and extremely powerful, if they make too many, it just kind of ruins the whole thing.

What they really need is more fire types.   Diamond and Pearl only introduce three new ones.  The starter, a legendary, and Magmars evolution.  Yet they add in a good amount of new water and bug types to the already bloated list of those types.

Sorry if this was already said recently, but I didn't feel like digging through the thread.

No word yet, there's been rumours that the US release date will be November, but that seems extremely unlikely.
Probably around February/March next year for the US, and then December 2010 for Europe.

Fixed.

As for Bug types, well, they need to add lots of those, so that, perhaps, one day, they might make one that's good*. Fire types are usually prety decent, ever since Ninetales and Arcanine of the Red/Blue days.



*Yeah, yeah, Scyther, Heracross and Pinsir are desperate to prove me wrong, I know.

I think it looks more like a giant baby.

Lickitung's evo, on the other hand...


Also, why the Hell do Rhydon and Magneton get evolutions?

They're completely unnecessary. I mean, Magneton and Rhydon were both already powerful. Now they're just powerful and ugly.

Maybe they're just trying to give Spore a run for its money? :P
Spore anounces that they've got a cool evolution game with spaceships so Pokemon responds by evolving one of their Pokemon INTO a spaceship. :D
