Pokémon Platinum (and D/P)
« on: February 28, 2009, 11:36:54 pm »
All right, who's getting it? I preordered it the first day I could.


Eeeheehee. I haven't looked forward to a game this much since FFVIA. And even that was just the same game just ported--Platinum has a rewritten plot. And from what I understand, the Galactics (who, let's face it, are the best part of Sinnoh) are a lot eviler. Which, given their ultimate goal *already*, should be really awesome.


I've already got fic ideas about the Distortion World but I need to see how it plays out in the game. Not to mention holy crap I can send over a ton of stuff from Pearl (heeheehee, I can start with a Larvitar in my paaaaarty...). Also I eagerly await finding out if a certain detail about a character is in there or not (some people who've played it in Japanese swear that it says that Cyrus is 27, but other people swear that it says no such thing. I'm more inclined to believe that it *does* simply because the people who say it doesn't never say where the idea comes from, and that the age has shown up on Japanese sites which means it wouldn't be a translation error from an amatur playing it, but still, confirmation would be nice).



Yes I care far too much about the bad guys, but aren't they the best reasons to play RPGs?

Step 1: Go to pokemon center on both games with two DSs
Step 2: Trade pokemon from one game to the other
Step 3: ????
Step 4: Profit!

But... not everyone has access to two DSs.

Does anyone know if they fixed the sprites?

Platinum has the same starters, and same basic story as DP. Think of it as the new Emerald/Crystal/Yellow version. Same game but lots of extras.

I'm somewhat surprised no one else has posted a Platinum Friend Code thread.
Rather than start a new one, I'll bump this one up.

This game is good so far. I like the fact that you get an eevee right away instead of after you beat the game ^_^

Grrrr... CHEAP BASTARDS! They did it AGAIN! They used a mirror of the right sides of both main characters (boy and girl) sprites for their, left sides! For instance, with the girl, the purse is ALWAYS facing the player when she is running right or left. I was SO hoping they would have fixed that for this installment (seeing how they created slightly new sprites), but NO, they decided NOT to use a few of the THOUSANDS of dollars they made off of daimond and pearl to create a left side for the main character's sprite!!!   >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

That's no glitch.
Since you don't have the national dex there is no number for them.

You're one smooth cat Man of the Public! I think I gave out too much info especially with the missingno! I stopped at Gold and thought they were starting to go into a cycle with fire and Leaf, so I decided to quit. I think I still have my mew card from Mewtwo Strikes Back.

Ya if you have either a wobbafet w/ shadow tag as an ablility or a trapinch at like lvl 73 w/ sand trap or something like that or a golbat with  mean look. any of those moves make it so it wont run away once you see it and carry a grass type pokemon with sweet scent so if it gets away just use that with out moving and you should be able to see it again
