I need to get this. I'm strapped for cash though, and have other, more important things (a new hard-drive) to buy first.

Is it compatible for battle/trade with Diamond and Pearl?

So I bought this and I was thinking cool pokemon, guess its ok I spent that money.  The I really wish I hadnt.  I love the pokemon universe and all but it feel like DP are still a little too fresh in my mind.  The only thing I had to look forward to was maybe getting some good stuff going on it by Fanime, because you know everyone will have it out while waiting in line.  Unfortunately my DS went missing last week.  I think it's gone for good. Pokemon was not inside it but my favorite game was.  Dunno when I'll be getting a new DS.  Maye if I hadnt have spent the money on Pokemon lol.

Yes it's compatible with dp.  It's the special edition for the d/p series, like emerald to ruby and sapphire.

you lost me oniko, DP is still fresh in your mind?  This is DP, only A LOT better.  The elite four is ridiculously harder after the first time you beat them, the battle frontier is mildly entertaining (i beat each brain once and the tower twice).  You can fight random gym leaders daily after you beat team galactic where heatran is (This is possibly my favorite change).  Zapdos, Articuno, and Moltres become catchable.  You can catch the 3 regi if you have special regigigas.  You can catch dialga and palkia at level 70.  Shaymin and giratina have alternate forms.  etc. etc.

If you guys think trading is hard, you aren't abusing the Wi-fi capabilities.  I do all of my trading online.  My friends actually aren't useful when it comes to trading for rare pokemon/ event pokemon, lol.  You can battle online as well oniko, join gamefaqs.  Everyone is always looking for battles and trades there.  ;)

AND REMEMBER: We're having a pokemon tournament at fanime, so get ready for massive trades/ battles =O

I'll wait for the next Pokemon Series so I can get into from Launch. I don't want to or have the time to train new Pokemons, and waiting will be the best option for me. Plus I lost track of my Pearl, which SHOULD be right next to my Fanime money in my safe. Silly DS games being so small...

If you ever get a DS and platinum again, give it another go.  You won't see the difference in the game until you face team galactic and everything.  Opponents are stronger and everything. 

Keeping pokemon to support my weak ones in elite 4 is hard because by the time they're strong enough to roll through the elite 4, they're already like level 88-100  ???

Kinda like a DS emulator, you can have multiple DS games downloaded on ONE ds card.

and hey its free ^_^

But I haven't played recently...

Need to get back to it now!!!

I see, so it has nothing to do with Pokemon...

If it got to that point I would just play it on a PSP with an Emulator.
Only thing the PSP is good for lulz.

Dude I just got a shiny (yellow) Deoxys last night, freaken hilarious.

This guy was trying to clone it and so the WANTED pokemon he listed was a Lv 100 Turtwig. I immediatly grab my R4, traded a Turtwig I had on Pearl to my R4, then used cheats to get Rare Candies, gave everstone to Turtwig to hold, and kept giving him Rare Candies until he reached Lv 100. Went back on GTS, whaddya know shiny Deoxys is still there. So I traded and lol'd. I want to see how the guy reacts when he finds a Turtwig in place of his shiny Deoxys.

400 Pokemon is not a big deal at all. Unless there all fully trained to 100 and such, then it would be.
Title: Re: Pokemon Platinum
Post by: JTchinoy on April 07, 2009, 03:42:19 PM
If that's 400 species, then i'd be impressed.  She deserves a cookie.  =P

Title: Re: Pokemon Platinum

I was assuming she meant species. I believe she said something like.... 389 or something? I dunno. I can't remember. It was a large number.

I only remember when Pokemon had 151 and it only came in Red and Blue. I haven't played it since those days.

So what are the tournament rules?
Title: Re: Pokemon Platinum
Post by: JTchinoy on April 07, 2009, 11:03:27 PM
So what are the tournament rules?

Let me copy pasta it...

Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum Tournament rules:
1v1, 6 pokemon format
No Uber tier Pokemon allowed
Species clause (No more than 1 copy of a single pokemon species per team.  Variations of the same pokemon are no exception.)
Evasion ban (Moves that increase your evasion are not allowed: Double Team and Minimize)
Sleep clause (You may not put more than 1 of your opponent's pokemon to sleep at a time.  If they use rest on one or more of their pokemon, you can still put 1 of their pokemon to sleep)
Freeze clause (Although there's no way to enforce this mid game, you're not allowed to freeze more than 1 of your opponent's pokemon)
OHKO ban (straight forward, no OHKO moves like Guillotine, Fissure, Horn Drill, or Sheer Cold)
We will likely use self-KO clause (If you use Explosion or Self-destruct with your last pokemon to KO your opponent's, you lose.  Destiny Bond will not give you the win if this results in both players losing all of their pokemon.)
Event moves are allowed, but keep in mind that we know what pokemon can get what moves.

No R4 or other emulators allowed, real copies of Pokemon only.
No hacked or edited Pokemon.
No changing teams in between matches; you must use the team that you present to us.
You must present your team at the time of registration for inspection.  If known to you, please present IVs and EVs with your team.
We will have IV calculators on us and we will be well informed on the legal movesets of most, if not all, Pokemon.
Please arrive at least 1 hour prior to the official start time.  We would like ample time to inspect everyone's teams.

Prize: To be revealed

edit::
Please keep in mind that until Nintendo officially releases the Rotom secret key, Rotom alternate forms are banned from this tournament.

We will be using the Smogon.com rulings on which pokemon are uber/OU/UU/NU as of this edit.  Further smogon rulings will be ignored for Fanime.

UBER Pokemon:
Arceus
Darkrai
Deoxys
Deoxys-A
Deoxys-D
Deoxys-S
Dialga
Garchomp
Giratina
Groudon
Ho-oh
Kyogre
Latios
Lugia
Manaphy
Mew
Mewtwo
Palkia
Rayquaza
Wobbuffet
Wynaut

If it's not on this list, it's allowed for the tournament.  There is a Soul Dew ban for those using Latias.

I'm thinking of banning rotom alternate forms even if they release the key.  People are starting to breed their teems already and if the rotom key is released 2-3 weeks before fanime nobody will be able to adapt in time.

I got Platinum a while ago, so I'm nearly done with it. Beat the Elite 4, currently beat each of the Frontier Brains of the Battle Frontier once, so I have to get to them a second time. Pokedex is nearly complete, just have to trade over a few things from my Pearl game.

Plus, I finally managed to clear a Master Rank contest with my Jigglypuff. Go Jigglypuff!
