And now with WiFi, you can easily complete the dex, I'm sure there will be many D/P exclusives running around for trade.

My sis and I always make it so we have at least one of each version. I've pre-ordered both. Also the only version I don't have is FR. I've made a little habit of getting almost every GB/GBA/DS pokemon game(only missing two).

I'm getting both. I've always gotten both versions, so it would be weird not to have both. XD

I'm only getting Pearl(hence my siggy/avatar). Dialga just looks dumb to me.=/

I don't know what I'm going to get yet. I know it's coming out soon, but I am leaning towards Pearl.

Im getting Diamond and maybe Pearl. It's like 99% to 1% that Im getting both of them. Im still not sure if I can get Diamond.

I pre-ordered both. If I had to choose between the two, It'd be Diamond. I had to say that because:

1. I wanted to make the thread more Diamond fans than Pearl, or people who are neutral since they're buying/bought both
2. I like Dialga better
3. Diamond gets better Pokemon. Not that Pearl doesn't. XD

I know many things about D/P. Some thing I'm acctually surprised I know. And people don't. And I get in an hour-long conversation about everything. 24 days till it comes! After Spring Break here in VA, It will be one day less than two weeks!

My birthstone is a Diamond so I'm going for Diamond acctually. It feels a bit odd to me though. As I tend to go for the blues of the generations. I'm still considering getting both. I know I will get both at somepoint just not sure when.

I am not getting both. It will make it harder for me to train my Pokemon.

Well, its not really a "waste" as yoo say but I see your point. The only thing is that one game has certain pokemon that the other game doesn't and ect ect xD.
I got both games in Japanese but Im only getting ze Diamond version in English fer now. Why Diamond? Diamond=meh birfstoneee chaaaa. XD

No, it's not a waste because if you want to fill the entire Pokedex, you got to buy both games. FOr me, I got to buy both games, another game unit, and the cable so I can trade back and forth for I live in an area with no other players. So yeah, I'll be trading a lot with myself.

Hikari Dawn is going to have great teams!

Zenaku
03-31-2007, 09:58 AM
Since I've played the Japanese version of Diamond, I may only get the English version of Pearl, despite some of my favourite Pokemon (Scizor, Tyranitar) being exclusive to Diamond.

It's rather unfortunate that some people don't have people to play with (Neither do I), but since Diamond and Pearl use Wi-Fi to trade, buying both versions just to complete the Pokedex isn't necessary. I suppose for people who can't trade via Wi-Fi, however, Game Freaks attempt at forcing people to trade (creating two versions with certain exclusives) will continue to damage the gaming experience for the small minority.

There's really no piont of buying them at the same time! You cant play both at the same time so you wont kow which one to play. Anyways if you want the legends you can just trade with people.

I got both D/P since I pre-ordered them on friday but I guess I'll be playing Pearl more often

The Maple Syrup Baptist
04-01-2007, 04:45 PM
I'll be playing Diamond more often, for Dialga, and because Diamond is my birthstone (Cheesy, I know).

With Pearl, I'll get each starter in the Nature I want (Adamant Turtwig, Adamant or Modest Chimchar, Modest Piplup), and trade over Pearl-exclusive Pokemon.

And I'll be trading over a Masterball from Pearl! :cool:

Yeah same reason. But, I have every pokemon game B/R/Y S/G/C Fr/Lg R/S/E I will eventually get pearl after I finish Diamond.

If you saw my topic called Diamond or Pearl I said I would get Diamond. So basically when Diamond and Pearl come out in stores I'm getting Diamond.

Espeon EX
04-01-2007, 06:47 PM
Well maybe, I'm getting diamond in aprill 22nd, I'm not sure about pearl, i mean, once the third game comes out. It'll seem useless since I have both D/P, so just diamond, then the third game that'll come out soon.

Usually I do buy both so I can trade exclusives between them, but not with online trading I can complete the Pokedex with only one game. I'll probably end up getting the other later, once the price goes down and I want to play the game again without deleting my data from the version I have.

:rambo:

Usually I try to get one that's either blue to some degree or the underdog game. When I mean underdog, I mean the one that's least bought so that I have leverage in trading most of the time. Most people seem to get Gold over Silver for example. Red over Blue because of Charizard, that kind of thing. I think Diamond is going to be the most bought one though, so I'm not sure if I'll get Diamond because it's blue or Pearl because it'll be the least bought game. Either way I'll get them both since my little brother and I are going to get them, we can still decide who gets which one when we get them home, but I'm leaning on Diamond.

I won't buy them at the same time, there's really no point.
I'll buy any version, see if it's good, if it is then I'll buy the opposite version.

Marzo
04-01-2007, 09:20 PM
Well, I know I'm going to get Pearl when the games come out.
For my birthday I might go out and purchase Diamond, I'm not sure yet.

04-02-2007, 01:52 AM
I guess I'm cheesy too for choosing my birthstone 'cause that's also why I got Sapphire. XD

I'll probably be getting Diamond, 'cause I like blue. :tongue: My friend is getting both Diamond and Pearl anyway.

I hate Crystal version becuase of it's exclusives, it has none of my best favorite Pokemon in it, like Yellow version. And the Battle Tower in Crystal cheats alot. The only good thing about it is that you can use the move "Thief," to steal other people's items from there forever. :)

Crystals Cool!!! Yellow is okay...I used to have it but it broke....I couldnt save---everytime I started playing I had to make a new game.

The reason for the "erase file" occorupted, to happened is:

1) - The game catrige was too old.

2) - The game catrige dried out.

I didn't choose which one I got. I got silver as a gift, while my bro and cousin got gold. I also didn't choose wether I got R/S either. I got sapphire for my 10th b-d(ironic isn't it) because my sis got ruby for her... 7th b-d... I think. I get some of my games as gifts... But not with D/P. With them I choose both, the day they come out!
P.S. Lugia is awsome.

BTW your sig is cute, with the Pokemon and their I-POD's! :wink:

Yes, and thanks. The ones I didn't get as gifts are MD R&B, Ranger, D/P, pinball R/S, I think, ruby, yellow, and I think that's all. Not a lot. But I did want (and got) LG (as a gift). So it's not the first time I got it my way. I might also get the stratagy guide... perdy piccys...

I want both games, but it's pointless getting both at the same time.

My plan:
1. Preorder Diamond. So I get the Dialga stylus XD
2. Play Diamond for considerably long time.
3. Buy other games.
4. Get Pearl later.

I mean, they're both exactly the same game, so it'd be boring juggling two of the same.

Yeah, it's true, theyre basically the same, but its still worth buying both. Here are some reasons.
1.version exclusives
2.undeground
3.Palkia(which goes with exclusives)
4.trading
5.battling
