Exclamation I can't choose!

I'm trying to choose ahead of time which game I'm going to get when they come out, Diamond or Pearl? I like the name Pokemon Diamond better than Pokemon Pearl, but I like the Parukia in Pearl better. I like Zugaidosu and Ramuparudo in Diamond better than Tatetopusu and Turidepusu in Pearl. What should I do?? ^^''

Diamond has the same number of choices as Pearl.

As far as which one to get, I would look at the exclusive Pokemon for each game and decide that way. That (like R/B/Y, G/S/C, R/S/E, FR/LG) is the only difference in the two games. As far as the import crowd, most (~70%) seem to have chosen Diamond, if that holds true for American release, then the exclusives from Pearl will be valuable on GTS.

Unhappy Re: I can't choose!

I started a thread about Dialga and Pialka to get other people's opinions about which version is more worth it. I'm going to go with Diamond......no Pearl......Dammit! I can't decide either!

The bad thing with diamond is there is 19 version exclusives and pearl has 20 version exclusives so that means you have to trade more if you want diamond

There are 11 Exclusive Familes in Both. The only reason Pearl has an extra exclusive is that it has 3 Families that have 3 Evolutions (Base/Upgrade/Final), where as Diamond only has 2 like that. It still means 11 Trades with EITHER game gets you the capability to have all.

You are counting evolutions.

Thing about it this way. Someone doesn't need to trade you a Charmander, Charmeleon, and Charizard for you to get all three; they can just trade you Charmander and you can level it.

Charmander, Charmeleon and Charizard may be three Pokemon, but they are one "family". D/P both have 11 Exclusive "families".

Why not get one now, and get the other later when the price goes down?
