If you have pre-ordered the games, tell us if it was odd (like mine!)

"Can I pre-order Pokemon DIamond"
Worker"Sure" "You know I think this is the break through since G/S/C the series has been looking for"
Then I put 10$ down.
 
Should I Pre-Order From Store or Internet?
I'm Confused. I'll Pre-Order From Internet.

I reccomend pre-ordering it from the store, as when you order it on the internet, you have to pay shipping. But if you're ordering it on the internet, I suggest you buy it from pokemoncenter.com or amazon.com as you know they won't give you fakes.

I pre-ordered both at the beginning of February about and I didn't really have a weird experience. The weirdest thing was probably that the people there all told me that they pre-ordered both copies as well and they were like in their thirties.

Also I just want to make sure. but since i did pre-order both games, I am gaurenteed the games on that day right? Or do I have to arrive early on the 22 so i don't lose my copies to someone else.

Yes. The store holds a copy of the game for you and everyone else who pre-ordered. That's the entire [expletive] point of pre-ordering. Were you under the impression that it's done just so the game store can take your money ahead of time, or that people just wanted the styli that badly?
 
yeah so did i, he told me if i could battle him over wi-fi.

But the guy that rang it up for me was a new recruit... sot it took him a good length of time.

Eh, after I sold some PS2 games for extra money, I saw a kid preorder both games and talk with the sales clerk (who hates Pokemon xD) about his Groudon....>_<

So I paid the 5 bucks and have Pearl coming. W000tAg3!!!

I didn't take the little book they wanted to give me though

You could have filed a lawsuit for discrimination :)
They aren't entitled to say things like that or to even sway your opinion on games~

Good comeback though!

No one in their right mind would file a lawsuit for such a small thing as "aren't you a little too old to play Pokemon?"...
I haven't personally taken anyone to court for anything, but I have a friend who was involved in that stuff.. Lawsuits are such a huge pain in the arse, they're not even worth it most of the time. :)

Of course, there are a lot of people out there who look past that little fact and will try to sue you for something as simple as scratching your nose at a stoplight, so I'm not saying you don't have to watch what you say to a customer either. >.>;;

On Topic:
I had no problems reserving my copy.. except for when I decided to switch Diamond for Pearl. The lady thought I wanted to ADD Pearl to my pre-order, but I don't want both games. I'm just one person. :3

Be thankful DS boxes are not the same as GBA boxes. I ordered Emerald from Pokemon Center's site along with their strategy guide. Upon receiving the package from UPS, it all came in a large cardboard type envelope. So I'd advise against purchases of GBA games offa them, as they pretty much smash up the box when it's sent. :s
 
When I pre-ordered Diamond at Gamecrazy The employee said that people have been pre-ordering like crazy, and that he promises on the day it comes out i'll get a stylus.

What's his aim?
 
It happend to me that when i pre_order pearl the clerk started talking of how cool it looked and all that stuff, then i realised he did not know anything about pokemon.
