He is not even playing Pokemans!!!

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

How many hours have you guys put in your older pokemon games? How many hours do you think you'll put into this (eventually)?

Lots and lots....lots and lots...

The old ones I would always replay....I had no patience for catching every pokemon but I loved the adventure of battling bosses....and the occasional civilians

Too many, and....too many.

I put most of my time into Fire Red. I played through Blue twice, Gold in Japanese, and Silver in english, but Fire Red was when I really got into breeding and EV training the ultimate team. Emerald I havent played too much. I couldn't stand the poor selection of pokemon near the begining of the game, and by that time I was a little burned out.

But now I'm ready for D/P, excited and terrified. It's going to eat so many hours of my life.

I'm a little upset that the DS carts aren't colored. That's certainly a first for the US.
Let me show you them.

So the fact you need the first badge makes this sound like it would take even longer to start the game over 6 times. At least breeding them later on, you can do other, more productive things while waiting for the eggs to hatch. But I guess by restarting 6 times you do get the unfair advantage of having 3 different strong types :roll:


Oh please. It's not like I'm playing against a real person, don't bitch about unfair advantages. It's mainly for collection purposes, for me anyway. I'd rather restart than have some dumbass egg with me the whole damn time, and then have it hatch at level 1 or whatever they hatch at while my team is level 50.

Yeah, I'm a bit upset too. What colors would the carts be anyway? Diamond could be a diamond-like cartridge, but then it would have to be white or silver. A see through blue cart would be too similar to Sapphire. Pearl would probably be a violet or off white.

HAWT!


I just got Diamond from Buy.com. No stylus, but I have a Diamond stylus from Target. I am getting ready to play all weekend long.

But now I'm ready for D/P, excited and terrified. It's going to eat so many hours of my life.

So have any stores broken street date? I was in earlier today at my GC when they recieved their FedEx shipment of them. They literally got in something like 100 of each version, but the employee wouldn't sell one to me.

We got them today at the Sams I work at. Only 20 of each. I tried to scan one through the registers but sigh they are street dated and cannot be sold.

Yea, I guarantee Wal-Mart is putting them out already but the same thing will happen, they will be street dated and it will confuse the employees.

I'm hoping Circuit City ordered a shitload... if GC is getting 100 of each, CC should hopefully get more than that, especially with their super low price.

But, it is Circuit City, they will probably get 4 of each version.

That is why I plan to be there close to when they open so I can save a little cash, but if I have to get it somewhere else it won't be a big deal.

I doubt it. In past games, even if you ahd the best pokemon, you could still be bested by a properly trained Charizard or some other properly trained third level evolution Pokemon. Shit, I remember working so hard to get my Dratini to Dragonite, but once I did that thing was a beast. Still my favorite Pokemon to date.

Anyway, even though i know for a fact come Sunday I will be getting Diamond, but I haven't really read up much about the game. How big's the pokedex on this one and is the Dratini family in the game?

I think I may make a lineup of just prepper Pokemon and annoy the Shaq-fu out of someone. Of course I will make a real lineup too with a couple legendaries but mostly third level evolutions.

I have 2 hours under my belt. It is fun. The new 3D touch is nice. It doesn't take away from the charming 2D world. Everytime I play Pokemon, I wish there was a new Earthbound game. I have 7 Pokemon and on my way to getting my first badge. I picked the fire Pokemon. He is cool. I love Buy.com sometimes.

But now I'm ready for D/P, excited and terrified. It's going to eat so many hours of my life.
