    Default Pokémon Special: Diamond and Pearl

    Teaser

    First of all, the characters. Kōki is Diamond. Jun is Pearl. Hikari... will she still be Hikari, or will she be named after the as-yet-unconfirmed third game? Hmm.

    Diamond & Pearl, apparently, can be said to be more of a comedic duo than Pokémon trainers. They collide with Nanakamado in a crowd, and this incident will change their fate.

    A letter, detailing what appears to be an escort. The goal: Mt. Tengan. The starting point: Kotobuki Mansion. Departure: 5PM, September 28. Compensation: ¥10,000,000. (That's a whole order of magnitude more money than the player character can have! ...)

    Hey! The date happens to be the release of DP.

    So, they are guiding Hikari?

    And cool, MUNCHLAX!

    Meh, I was hoping that Pearl would be the girl's name, and they'd come up with some other name for the rival character, but that would break this series' naming scheme of giving the main version names to the protagonist and rival. Oh well...

    I also noticed that the girl has a Pochama -- just like her anime counterpart -- so my guess is that Diamond and Pearl will get Naetle and Hikozaru, respectively.

    Ruby and Sapphire. In the games at least, the Professor's child is a secondary rival when compared to Wally.

    Anyways, Munchlax and Perap. ^^ It's like Laurel and Hardy as Pokemon trainers.

    Well, that is who they're shown with in the last panel (you can barely see them because they're clinging to Diamond and Pearl's heads. XD).

    Yay, Munchlax and Perap :D.

    I still have to get caught up on the Pokemon Special translations for... well, everything past the R/G saga but I definitely look forward to the D/P one - it looks like it could be very entertaining. *Makes a note to buy more from Grimsg later*.

    I wonder how Pearl's personality will turn out? Jun in the games is entirely too much like Emerald.

    How exactly is the In-game rival? Japanese text doesn't reveal much (although I do know he yells "Get the hell out of the way" alot (or so I've heard))

    Impatient, in a rush all the time. Bumps into the player a lot, literally.

    LOLZ I love those dorks already. <3 Hikari (or whatever her name will be) looks like she means business, tho. Having a goofball comedic duo just screams "shipping" to me, but until Diamond and Pearl become established PokeSpecial names like Yellow and Ruby and Sapphire, I'll lay off on the shipping name. Because really...Pearl? People are gonna think Kouki x Hikari if I put that up. Heh, at least Ruby's not alone in the "Boy Named Sue" category anymore.


    EDIT: And something funky seems to be up with the PokeSpecial site's main page...I can't click on anything. o_O;

    Diamond and Pearl are confirmed names. Besides, PearlShipping is already established.

    And so's Diamondshipping. Man, if only I'd known they were gonna name a game Diamond, I would have thought of a different ship name.

    I know they're confirmed, but how many people in the English-speaking fandom are going to recognize them as the PokeSpecial chars after all this preconception about the boy being named Diamond and the girl being named Pearl? Besides, Pearlshipping is only for the anime since Ash is in it, and just as the May in Advanceshipping is generally not thought of as the May in Hoennshipping, so the Hikari in the game will probably not be widely regarded as the same Hikari in the anime.

    And seriously...what is up with the Netkun page? A bunch of links seem to be missing.

    Diamond/Pearl is already called FortuneShipping, anyway. I coined it back when the game names were first announced. 8D;;
