Well, if you want to wait for a European release you can at least play in French instead. It might be less painful.
Not a winner anymore.

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."
hate to break it to you, but they probably won't even do that.....
What have you got against intellectual midgets? They're quite smart little guys as far as i can tell.

Less than a week to go now.  Unfortunately, as I'm in the UK, I won't get the game until around May 4th, which just so happens to be when my exams start, so sadly I won't get the chance to play very much for the next week or so.

I plan on starting with Piplup, and I have a friend who's taking Turtwig.  So if anyone's taking Chimcharr, if you could breed one to trade to me, it would be much appreciated.   :)  I have to work on re-completing my Pokedex, I have one of every single species, including all of the Unown lined up in my boxes in Emerald, it's going to take months to transfer them all over, I'm thinking it will probably be easier to just catch and re-train most of them.

also, the evolutions of older pokemon look cool and strong too! increadible! i cant wait for the new pokemon! ;)

I played a demo in a Gamestop, and now I'm excited for this game. A shame I'll have to wait until finals are over to get to play it. Curse college!

I suspect Australia will get the EU release I hope not I'll check next week but I get the feeling I already lucked out.

Having to wait a month is pretty good, previously we've been left waiting over sixth months.  They do at least seem to have learned that if they don't release the games sooner over here, everyone is just going to import.  I remember last year, getting Pokemon Emerald back in May, finishing it, getting bored and putting it away, going back to it, getting bored, and then noticed that it wasn't even released here in the UK until October.  That's pretty damn bad.

Anyway, I just got an email from the site I'm importing from, and they said they've begun to ship the orders, so I should have it by Thursday/Friday next week.  A little better than expected, but I still have exams in the way.

Well I'm psyched for it. I quit World of Warcraft again (Need to concentrate on school more) and just realized the other day I'm less then a week from this game releasing.

Getting Pearl. Will love it. I'm surprised how many people at school like it. These people are around my age (16,17,18), and I thought I was a loser getting it. So many people are really hyped for this game. Two of them are buying a DS just for this game. Thats insane.

I think the pendulum is swinging back into Pokemon's favor. I wasn't surprised when my best friend said he wanted the game, but that his older brother and his girlfriend wanted it really surprised me. Both of them and I are in college, and my friend will be next year.

Maybe people are just recognizing it as a good game again. I'm not about to get swept up in cards or the TV show like I did when it first came out, but the game? It just looks solid.
