Pen Pen was a great penguin.
Too bad he didn't feature in it much.
Overall I like the concept behind Pokemon, but it's game mechanics are a bit to simple for me. I guess thats why I prefered Monster Rancher to my Yellow\Stadium on the N64. All I really want is a console Pokemon game thats actually worth buying. I don't get it. Why can't Nintendo give people who couldn't care less about the handhelds a decent game. The two Pokemon games that showed up on Gamecube were a complete bust.
Because people who don't care about handhelds are less then human and deserve to be shot in the mouth.
I just reserved Pokemon Diamond. Kinda late but at least im getting it for sure. I read the entire walkthru on da web. The storyline is really good. I can't wait. And no body pick the monkey, it turns out when it becomes a fighting type, most pokemon can like kick it's...well let's just say it's easy to boot.
Well, i went out and booked a copy of Pearl this afternoon.
The EB guy told me that the game WOULD be available for pickup on sunday (the 22nd), so that's exciting.
The time has come. In just a few hours, I will be engaged in a furious, epic battle heard from every corner of the world, one that will test my wits and push my decisiveness to the ultimate limits... over which starter I should choose.
I played,Red, Yellow, and then Crystal. And pretty much beat them all except the Battle Tower.
Anyways yeah I don't really have an intrest in catching 500 more pokemon
There are 500 pokemon in total, but I think there are only 151 available in the new games.
wOOt they come out today. I'm getting them in about 30 min.
Can you let us know what it's like?
AHHHHH! I'm getting it in an hour, its sold out in like every Game Stop by now. Good thing I reserved my copy
Bah, all the americans are playing the new pokemon game and I have to wait untill June.
I love Diamond and Peral. The graphics are great. I spent 10 hours at it yesterday, and I only have to badges. The underground is sweet. Haven't done WiFi yet though.
On another note. What starter did those that got the game choose?
I chose Piplup He has evolved now and is at level 20. How about you?
I got Diamond at 12:20 A.M. Sunday from Wal-Mart. They weren't on the floor and were not planning on bringing them out until about 8 a.m. or whenever they felt like it. I used my masculine charms to seduce the manager so she would bring me some copies from the back (this was awkward because I am 32 and this lady is in her 60's and my wife was looking on, but you do what you must). I went with Mr. Piplup and am about 8 hours in and totally addicted to this game. I can't even argue that it's cool, it's just FUN. I bought an additional Diamond for my friend and a Pearl for my wife even though they have never played. They are GLUED to their DS now. Let me make it clear that we are nor particularly hardcore gamers. If you've played before, get it and love it. If you have not, get it and like it and then grow to love it.
I picked up Diamond yesterday at around 9:50am. I'm about 11 and a half hours into it at the moment. I have two badges and I must say that I love the Global Trade Service and the Japanese fans. They've apparently been mass breeding starters and are giving them away for junk. I went with a Piplup which is currently a lvl. 31 Prinplup. Thanks to the GLS I also have a Turtwig, now a lvl. 19 Grotle, and a Chimchar, now a lvl. 20 Monferno.
I've barely had time to play it with finals being this week, but so far so good. I haven't played since the R/B/Y generation, so I'm a little behind the times to say the least. My only complaint would be that the graphics and audio are pretty "meh" compared to most other DS games. By this time I would expect responsive battle animation and a high quality of sound, neither of which you really get in D/P. It feels like a GBA game with a bit more juice. Still, I have no doubt it'll become one of my favorite DS games, and I imagine I'll be playing it nonstop over the summer.
Sweet, I just beat the 3rd Gym Leader. Stupid Lucario. My Strategy
Get that Staravia and have it take on the Leader's Pokemon. Mine was 28. Then sacrifice your other pokemon it its faints to use a super potion and a revive. Woot.
What kind of team do your guys have?
Picked up Pearl yesterday. Went with the penguin. He's about a lvl 8 right now.
My only concern is the touchscreen has mainly been unneeded, and it would have been really great if they allowed you to seletc menu/battle options using the crosspad and face buttons in addition to the touchscreen (as it stands now, you have to use the touchscreen-buttons don't work). It's not like your missing out on any special animations or what have you, either.
What do you mean? You don't have to use the touchscreen for anything, IIRC.
I decided to check out the hype again. I haven't touched a Pokemon game since Yellow. I bought Emerald, LeafGreen, FireRed, Diamond, and Pearl.
Being 22 years old, did anyone else feel weird buying them? I found myself not being able to say the word "Pokemon". Maybe it's the old "Poke-hater" in me, because I couldn't stand it when the cartoon and CCG was so popular... meh. So, I'm just standing at the store pointing and saying, "I want the Emerald one..."
I'm 23 and I started this thread, I was also really into the cartoon, I'd buy the series on DVD if I could afford to. I was also very excited when I got Blue Mystery Dungeon and I think it showed.
I never played a game that came out after Red and Blue but I really want to check out the new games. I'll probably be getting Diamond sometime in the near future.
