How have you prepared yourself for the day that Pokemon Diamond and Pearl comes out? Have you pre-ordered, or have you taken it a step beyond? Here's what I've been doing:

*I've pre-ordered
*Requested off that day from work
*Raising more Pokemon on my GBA games

What have you done to prepare yourself?

I haven't really prepared myself for D/P except pre-ordering it after I saw the commercial,"Oh crud!!! I gotta get it!" *screams* My team in D/P will probably only have the D/P pokemon only.. I won't be sure until I get it.

Only two weeks away...

Eh, I haven't done any of those. I wanna preorder, but I have the feeling they won't be sold the first day. Besides, I need to train my Combusken into a Blaziken, so I can get Piplup. The later I get the better, assuming the fire gym is one of the first ones.

AshMistyMayfan's check list:

Pre-order game at ToysRUs 3/24/07
Pre-ordered guide book, and the Justice League last season. but both items will not get here until April 30.:sad:
Playing Dungeon and evolving Pokemon. Taking in a lot of Western Cave missions for quick EXPs, but had to bring a lot of reviver seeds. It's a great time killer.
Set alarm clock for 9am so to catch bus at 9:30am and get to ToysRUs by 10am, will ride bike fast. Why does ToysRUs got to open at 10am on Sundays for?
Preparing Pokemon from RSE for the journey to SInnou
THen on Diamond, prepare the breeded Pokemon to be traded onto Pearl so Pokemon like Torchic can team with Piplup.

And unlike Wrestlemania, won't be shaving bosses head.:crackup: Thought I'd throw that last one in there.

NinjaDuelist , yeah, I had so much trouble sleeping, I ended up watching a Star Trek rerun at 5am! Unfortunately, that was the night I had bad heartburn. I can't wait until the 22. 13 days for Diamond/Pearl movie on CN! Don't miss it!

I've been playing Emerald a bunch, and trading/raising my guys on FireRed.

Let's just say I'll be ready for online play day 1, and I'll be damn good.

That's true... Well if I rushed through it I could beat it on Day 1...

But with a game I've been waiting 2 years for? Ain't gonna happen! :biggrin:

I preordered diamond on march 31st, and since then ive just been waiting. Both my gba pokemon games are lost or traded in. Fortunately, I have other games, like the call of duty games, to keep me entertained.:rambo:

Actually trying to beat my first RPG Pokemoon game (Sapphire):oops: I'm a baaad trainer!
(scolds myself)

I'm also planning my main 4th Gen. team, all involving cute pokemon.

Also, when I get the National Pokedex (what you need to trade if I'm not mistaken), I'll restart my Sapphire without saving, play into Mauville three times to breed for the starters and then trading them over to Diamond.

Life will be good. :cool:

Sorry there, but I think it forces you to save when you send your Pokemon into D/P. It makes you save when you trade, so I don't see how importing Pokemon into D/P will be anything differant.

Yeah, but that would take up so much time. And besides, it saves. It would be kewl if it didnt, cuz then you could just turn off sapphire after trading, and have all of them back.

:rambo:

Yeah, realized something like that five seconds after I posted. :rolleyes: I don't pay attention to most things.

I'll still do it but after I defeat the Elite 4 and get Latias along with Rayquaza, trade all my good pokes over to Diamond, and then breed the starters.

That sounds logical this time.... :oops:

everyone!!! heres a suggestion::


dont train before dp!!! because some of the older pokemon from past generations can learn some new attacks by leveling up in D/P!!

so if u trained ur blaziken to lvl 69 and pass it, there is no way he will ever learn flare blitz... because he learns it at lvl 66!!!!


start thinking people!!! ur past gen pokemon can learn new moves by leveling them up in D/P!!!


(thats why i am going to make a baby staryu, so it can learn all the new attacks it can...)

catch em all

I saved my downloaded pokemon from the 10th anniversary. They are in a special box, and I made sure it goes by sixes so it's even.

I pre-ordered.
I made a WiFi team.
I am passing the time. :D

Giving all my pokemon items including TMS, Master balls, berries, and hold items

Trying to get one of every pokemon on pokemon box and get enough for a surfing pichu

Trying to get Ho-Oh on colloseum but without any success, I beat mt. battle before I purified all the shadow pokes, and now that they're all purified it's not giving me Ho-Oh after beating the tower.

Trying to find my little brother's ruby version in case it has stuff on it to steal heh heh.

Recruiting people to buy the game, so far I know about 7 people who are getting it, although it's wifi, and I just checked if my wifi is still working and it is.
