The wikipedia article says nothing about online connectivity. How much will there be? Will it be just like having the other person there, and you can trade pokemon that way? My friend and I will buy it if that's the case (different versions, of course).

If by 'Jesus' you mean a shower of pedantic, anal-retentive idealogues...

There's a global trade station where you can put up Pokemon for trade and specify what you want in return, then when you come back, someone may or may not have traded you.

From what I've heard, everything else requires Friend Codes.  :(

I can't tell if you're kidding or not.

That's basically what happens from what I can tell.

I went on ahead and bought me Fire Red. (coz it brings back memories of the old Pokemon. ;D ) I'm playing through it right now so that if I possibly get this new one, I can move my other ones into this one. Though I hope you don't have to play over 2/3 through the game so I earn the ability to do so like what Red and Green one does with Ruby and Saphire.

Unfortunately, you do.

Once again, you need to have the national dex before you can trade between the older games and in order to get it, you need to have seen all 200 or so Pokemon from the D/P dex.  I can understand why they do this, they don't want people to import all of their old super powerfull Pokemon too early in the game, but it's so easy to get around that, it's just pointless.

Yeah, that's why I thought they were doing it as well.

But the pal park, where you transfer your Pokemon from your old games to D/P isn't available until after you defeat the Elite Four, so given that, it seems completely pointless to also add this limitation.

I can see the point as well although it is a pain as i can't trade some of my Ruby Poke's with my cousin because he hasn't finished leaf green. Oh well i guess i can work on making a market of Mudkips to trade with people or something.

Tha Pal Park itself seems like a completely worthless addition as well.  I could understand it, if all the Pokemon you caught were giving new ID numbers, etc, but no.  When you catch them they're exactly the same as they were back in your old GBA games.  So why do we have to go through all the trouble of catching them again?  and why can we only do six a day?

It seems they're just trying to make things awkward, it's going to take me weeks to transfer all mine over.

Well, we're getting closer to the US release now, dispite a lot of the problems it seems to have, I'm pretty excited.  There's been a lot of new info lately too, mostly the US names for the new Pokemon.  I won't bother posting them all, but needless to say they're all pretty awful, especially the starters.  Piplup, Turtwig and Chimchar.  Other notable terrible names include "Bidoof", "Driftblim" and "Starly".

Seems like they hand a random brainstorming session and used whatever was thrown out first.  Thank god for nicknames.

Hahahaha, wow. Those fake Pokemon in the bootleg games have better names than that.

...and that's why I started naming them after Gold

What happened to the people who came up with good names? Did they die?
Not a winner anymore.
