Who else here hates the fact that D/P are gonna be released on a Sunday? I mean, come on, it's the last day of the weekend, after that fun day, it's back to boring school. It's already bad enough I have to borrow my neighbor's ds since i don't have one, and this?!:susp:

Well I don't mind, since I can get it right when I wake up and not wait until after school.

Plus, I'm 19 years old. If I want to take Monday off, I'll write my own note. :wink:

That's the time I'm usually picked up from school. I wish I took the bus...NOT!! I'd have to wait like an hour if I took the bus.

Yes, I don't like that either. But I would rather get it on Sunday instead of waiting until next Friday.

It's actually quite fun. I'm Jewish, btw, if you're wondering. We get an iPod break, which isn't just for iPods. I bring my DS to play. I'm bringing my Reciept and DS that day so I can play as soon as I get to the car. :P

Or he graduated...:susp: :susp:

Anyway, I don't care. I'm just happy that it's here and that I have the entire day to play it. On Monday I'll just play after school as much as I can!!:biggrin: :biggrin:

Since my Pearl is going to be shipped from EB, I don't know when it's going to get here (anybody have a clue?) but more than likely, I won't get on Monday. Too bad, too since we have Monday off due to Teacher Inservice.

I really don't mind since all this week we're having final exams and after that, school will be a lot more tolerable.

What's so unfortunate about a Sunday release? My mom said we'll stop at Wal-Mart after church and buy it if it's there. Though I doubt it.

Not what I meant. I mean I think Walmart gets em in late.MD was 2 days late. I'm not worried about them being sold out. Pokemon isn't that popular.Some of you guys are talking about camping out, no ones gonna buy em all.

Dude, don't be naive.

I live in a tiny little city called Sault Ste. Marie in Ontario... Barely a dot on the map... And the stores here are predicting every copy to be gone on day one, especially EBGames. Good thing I pre-ordered both versions and the guide. :wink:

I live in Florida. Hardly matters at all, because, Pokemon isn't as popular here as Japan. Besides, it's a Pokemon game, but....*gaspity gasp* IT'S ON THE DS!*gasps are heard*[/sarcasm] As I said, at least where I live, it probably won't get sold out quick. Besides, me thinks the people at the store told you that so you'd preorder.

Well I really hate it that they come out on Sunday because school is the next day. :(

What does thathave to do with anything? What does school have to do with anything??

When I went to pick up my copy of Emerald on the day it came out, noone else was there to get it but me. And I live in the capital of Ohio. The same happened with MD.

Though, just to be safe, when you preorder it, that means they'll keep one for you until you pick it up right? xD; Or will they sell mine if I'm there after every copy is sold out? I don't think they would, but I'm not sure..

And Trainer Kris, they won't sell your game. That's why you pre-ordered it; it's yours already.

Unless they're scum bags, but that could get them in a lot of trouble.

In my case, like many others, I have school to attend which takes about 6 hours each day on top of homework and having to work a job. I'm guessing that's not bad enough?:susp:

I know what you mean but I doubt mine will even come until the friday after it comes out anyway since I couldn't pay for express shiping(I preordered it online).

I pre-ordered from Toys-R-Us, just like my friends. I begged my mom to let them come over to my house so we could start our games together, but no dice...
I don't mind it being on Sunday. Why? I leave for school at 9 am, I wake up at 6 am. 3 hours of playing, plus about another four in the afternoon... >3

Uh, four words rule.

I don't really care about the release date being on a Sunday. At least it's on a no-school day, so I can spend the day catching up on latest info. And I'm not likely to preorder anyway. I shall get it the day it releases in Singapore shops.

Better on a Sunday than another day later, in my opinion. I mean, its bad enough to have to wait out these days at it is! I can't sleep at night!

Also, I requested Sunday off due to its release, and my job denied it as it was "not appropriate for requesting off." I didn't argue, as they had a good point, as well as there were a few more days coming up that I needed to request off for serious purposes.
