I thought Pearl's was cooler, too, but I still ended up with diamond because my friend's brother got diamond, and his girlfriend go pearl, so it kind of makes a web of people with different versions on the sole condition that I have diamond and he has pearl.

:-\ do you need a credit card for importing? if so, importing will be no option...

All you need is a debit card, do you have a bank account? Because if so you should be able to get one.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Also I hear copies shipped from the stats wont be compatible with my copy of Ruby not sure if it's true but I rather wait. Plus my bank doesn't offer a debit card from some stupid reason.

The pal park won't be compatible. It's region blocked - a US diamond/pearl cart won't work with a EU ruby/sapphire/emerald cart and vice versa. Fortunatley, my sapphire cart is ALSO imported...

Well, I got the game today, which is pretty cool, I didn't expect it this early.  I've been playing for three hours straight, but I really need to stop and get some work done now.  I'm really impressed with the game so far, I only just got my first badge, it definetely seems like the biggest game so far, and it has all the best features back from Gold and Silver.  I'm very happy.

According to some people on Gamefaqs, Pal Park works fine between European and American copies.  I haven't tried myself, so I wouldn't take that as 100% confirmed, but it we'll see.

I also have to point out just how great the Global Trade Center is, I just tried it out now, looking for a Chimchar, as it's the one starter I don't have, and within two minutes someone sent me one for my Bidoof, AND it had Pokérus.  Great to see there are some nice people out there willing to help others out, I hope it stays that way after the excitement dies down.

Once I trade over all my GBA Pokemon, I'll have all the starters from the previous games, along with just about any other type of Pokemon, exluding Legendaries, if anyone here needs any of them.  I'm also gonna play through XD on the Gamecube again soon, to try and get a spare Lugia, but I think I'll be holding him off for a special trade, I can't just give him away for nothing.   :)
