Game Info & Release Date Thread

This is the revamped game info thread for XD. The main reason is just to clear up the mess in the previous one, and to provide a place for the release date discussions. Please stop posting new release date discussions and kindly direct all of them here.

The following are only the basic info on XD, detailed info can either be found on the site or in the FAQ sticky.

Basic Info:
Pokemon XD, Gales of Darkness, is the second RPG game developed for Nintendo Gamecube by Genius Sonority. It is the sequel to Pokemon Colosseum and the basic game plot is about snagging shadow pokemons like its predecessor.

The name XD in the game title means eXtra dimension, which probably signifies the 3D aspect of the GC games. The signature pokemon of this game, shadow Lugia, has the code name XD001, which means eXtra Dark pokemon (note that shadow pokemons are called dark pokemons in Japanese).

Memory Blocks required: 43

Compatibility: It is compatible with Ruby, Sapphire, Fire Red, Leaf Green and Emerald. It is also technically compatible with Colosseum and Pokemon Box, but since you can't trade between two GC games directly, you'll need to do them via a GBA game.

E-reader compatibility: From what it seems, E-reader is not compatible with XD, as the device is pretty much abandoned some time after Emerald's release, and there has been no mentioning of releasing XD E-cards.

4th generation pokemons: Munchlax and Bonsly make cameos in XD. For more info, check the site or XD FAQ sticky.


The following are the games' release dates. They are subject to change, and of course, if you preorder it or your local stores don't usually follow the official release date, it would be another story.

Japan: 4th Aug 2005
America: 3rd Oct 2005
Europe: 18th Nov 2005
Australia: 3rd Nov 2005

Yah, you do get it with a gamecube but I already have a gamecube so I can't get it. Also Coronis, in Canada for Zellers it came out today October 1 so I'm getting it tommorow.
Edit: Sorry I didn't get it that day. I got it yesterday

It would be nice to put America and EU instead of US and UK, it isn't too important, but you know, UK and US aren't the only countries in their respective continents.

18th November? I think that's the same day the new Harry Potter film comes out here too. Time to book a day off work, methinks...

Harry Potter is November 14th, I think.

Also, the UK release date might be earlier for some places.
