Yes! I'm already excited about this game (again.. I felt a bit doubtful for a while..lol). The E4 looks like it'll be MUCH more of a challenge- (i mean Flint- he had a Steelix?? WEAK to fire?? What IS that?!). Even though the levels are lower, they'll still be pretty tough, i remember the first time i got to the E4 in Pearl- i'd foolishly raised my Torterra much more than everything else.. And it was still lower than Garchomp. Battle Frontier lookin' good, (hard, but good). This game is gonna be a major improvement. Although i must say all the Regi-business is ott.. I myself wouldn't have any time for something that lowers it's level to 1 in a battle..
The elite 4 looks like they use tiers?
It's most likely not in May.
Many times, stores set fake release dates, because it looks better than "TBA". Then, many will pre-order the game from them, and they make money. Then, when the game doesn't come at that date, they say "Oh, but our sources said..." etc. It happens every time a popular game is to come out.
Every. Single. Time.
That said, it is possible that they'll release it that early. It's just highly unlikely. I'd say there's about a... 10% chance that it'll come in May. 15% at the highest.
I believe so, yes. Well, from the few videos I watched, anyways. Battle themselves were quite faster, too.• Have they fixed the time it takes to start a battle? Playing Diamond for 30 minutes and then playing, say, Ruby, shows how much of a joke Diamond is. Why's it so much slower?
...You do know that the bag space is unlimited, right?• Is the item box back? I hated that, because there were more useful items than spaces in your pocket, you had to stick them on creatures in your PC box and then need to spend ages tracking them down because you forgot what you'd attached them to.
It seemed faster, but I've never really seen JP D/P for comparison.• Text speed. It's always been woefully slow in the series, I'm well aware, but it's worth asking for the 11th time: Is there finally an option for instant text display? Or at least one that's sped-up? It's always seemed to be displaying at the speed (per character) it did in the Japanese versions which is horrible because the Japanese text doesn't need nearly as many characters per line.
This is a stupid question, but with the incoming release of Platinum, are all the new pokemon from Sinnoh in the pre-E4 PokeDex?
Yes they are
What is the US release date for Platinum?
Are Dialga and Palkia both available in Platinum?
After the E4 and you have to find both the Lustorous and Adamant Orb in Mt Cornet and you cannot transfer it from D/P.
