Companies which stop imports from American fail to grasp that releasing a game 6-18 f***ing months later might be the cause of such actions.
What have you got against intellectual midgets? They're quite smart little guys as far as i can tell.

Yes because translating English (US) to English (UK) must tax the sharpest of minds, especially when most don't even change the spelling.
I mean COME ON! the DS is region-less there is no logical reason for we in the UK having to wait so damned long for a game already out in the US.

It's why I love Another Code. Even though the main character's from Seattle, all of the speech and other text is in UK English. It's possibly the only Japanese game where I've ever seen the word "colour" spelled correctly and it's the reason why I love the DS.

I'll just import Pokémon Pearl. It's not like Pokémon games are famous for their narrative. That, and Nintendo won't bother fixing the spelling anyway so, unless I want to play it in French for some reason, there's no point in waiting.
Not a winner anymore.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I just got the new Nintendo Power and they have a lot about Pokemon in it!

Also my local EB had a demo of Pearl and I got to play it and I have to say the animations are much better and I really enjoy what I was able to play!


Thank you, as you have just been Lazered

How are the Pokemon animations when they're sent into battle?  I haven't really seen much of them at all.  The ones they had in Emerald were awful, I don't see why they even bothered, they just used morphed sprites.  Most of them just bounced up and down unrealistically, it looked really odd with guys like Charizard and Venusaur.  And let us not forget the worst of them all - Blaziken, it looked like he was throwing up.



Seriously, what the hell is with the jittering and all?  I hope they've improved the quality in Diamond and Pearl.

Well, 9 more days of waiting here in the states. Lets see if it was worth the wait. Havent played any demos, and the Nintendo Power coverage sucked if you ask me. I was hoping that the issue where Poke'mon was on the cover would at least have a guide through the first gym. I like to understand how the gameplay is going to flow, even if I have played this type of game countless times before.
The beatings will continue until morale improves
I no i cannt spel

There is none.

I'm going to try and pick up an import copy. I'm not going to wait a year for them just to not change "color" to "colour."
