Well.... I'll at lest be getting it  :-\

You realize that their opinion is only a fraction of who is actually getting it. C'mon, they either voted no because of; 1: They're a bunch of Anti-Pokemon haters. Or 2: They're too afraid to admit they want the game since Pokemon are considered "uncool." After listening in on the outside world this game is in considerabe popular interest.

People tend to judge how lame Pokemon are because of the crappy anime 4Kids tends to mutilate.

I am purchasing both and my partner is going to buy the headsets.

Cartoonnetwork last night had the new Pokemon Diamond and Pearl cartoon and it was actually pretty good!  The new pokemon are pretty interesting and I cannot wait to play the game!

Pokemon is a good game and it is not just a KIDDIE game like people say as it requires skill to battle lthe different pokemon and learn which pokemon is better against another one and what moves to learn. 

I am not afraid to say I LOVE POKEMON and I'm a 39 yrs old!! :)


Thank you, as you have just been Lazered

Does anyone know whether or not you need to reserve a game beforehand? I don't feel like reserving anything, but I don't know if they'll  have enough. Think I'll be able to get it on the day it comes out?

Most likely yes, among the uninformed it's still unpopular.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

It seems like at the very least, the first wave of games shipped will be sold out. When I was at the Gamestop where I played the demo, I asked an employee when it would be out, and they said the 22nd, but that I should probably reserve it if I wanted to get it then.

I know for a fact at my local gamestop the diamond version preorders are completely filled up and the pearl are close to being full.

Personally I preordered diamond a month ago so I'll get mine tomarrow with no difficulty.
Those who think anything is possible have never tried slamming a revolving door.

From what I've been hearing, a lot of stores in America have been selling the game since Friday, and the site I imported from did ship the game on Friday as well.

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.

Hey, same here! It seems that a lot of people who were fans of the original Pokemon for the GBC are now getting sucked back in. I know that I was a huge fan of Pokemon Red, but ever since then I've fallen out of the loop with all of the GBA releases. Yet, I'm super excited for this one, and it'll be my first Pokemon game in over 8 years. I can't wait to jump back in!

I think that with this being the first true Pokemon game in a few years, having Wi-Fi play, and being on the insanely popular DS, people are warming up to the game again. Not to mentinon the whole Pokemon craze, like you said, isn't so commercialized anymore.
