    Default Buy Diamond/Pearl or wait for Platinum?

    Lost my Pearl version. I'd like to play again but I'm not sure if I should get another Pearl (or Diamond) or just wait for Platinum (which I'm getting either way). What do you guys think?

    Yup. At a time like this maybe you could wait for platinum, just like Ino Pig said. It's a remake so it will have new additions. And, while you're waiting you have a small break and increase the "hunger" for pokemon games.
    Since everyone these days has one of these, I'm going to put mine too...



    On a funny note, I made this personality test on 3 different ocasions and the pokemon I got every single time was Togetic so this can't be very wrong...

    But won't it be a while until it comes out?(at least in the u.s. or europe...) Depends on if you want to wait it out or not.

    Depends on:

    -If you can wait that long to play Pokemon again
    -If you want to play the exact same story, or one slightly modified

    I haven't even been able to play through emerald again, so imaybe yous huould wait.

    For the past 10 years I haven't been able to decide between the two games. I waited for Yellow, Crystal, Emerald, and am currently waiting for Platinum while I'm still busy working on my older games.

    I'm not so sure. I've got some Pokemon on my Diamond that I transfered, like 3rd Gen legendaries, and I don't want to go through a lot of mess to get those Pokemon into Platinum. But since I probably won't get a new DS, since my old one is broken, until Platinum arrives in the states, I might as well wait.

    This may sound stupid, but I've never heard of Platinum version before. Explain?

    well if you dont want to wait too long, import Platinum from Japan, the games are so easy that you dont need to read and there will always be guides on the internet to help you.

    thats what im doing btw.

    That is true.....if you played Pokemon before....especially D/P (of course you lost your Pearl), you should have no problem...the storyline is basically the same.

    'I herd u lik swampert',thanks. I haven't been looking up Pokemon for a while, so it's natural that I didn't know.
