i don't like many of the new sprites for platinum. i guess i'll just have to get used to them. i reckon they should have remade some of the other non-sinnoh dex pokies sprites as well. but it's awsum because you can get eevee without the national dex.
 
I'm pretty happy with all the new sprites. But the only thing that I really wanted to get a new sprite was Dragonite seeing as I really hate the d/p one. But ofcourse, it is ignored. :(

Boy, Regigigas really got screwed this game. It lost out on Sky Forme, then it got made into a semi-event pokemon, then the regular one got dropped all the way to Lv. 1! Sky Forme Regigigas would have been awesome! What a shame!

That's not exactly a bad thing though since you won't have to worry about getting crushed by it as you try to hurl as many Dusk Balls on it as possible. A high leveled Pokemon with False Swipe is enough to handle it.

Has anyone checked out the official Platinum site yet? They've got a couple of upates that include some nice Sugimori artwork of the Brains and Pluto, as well as a really cool, albeit small, image of the Battle Frontier and the 3 Twinleaf trainers.

<-I herd u Liek me?
Whoa... the new sprites...

Best/ones I like:
Grotle -- I'mma gonna HEADBUTT U!! NooB!

Infernape -- Looks like it's ready to fight

Bidoof -- I LUF DA NEW BIDOOF! It's head is like, an AWWW pose

Gyarados -- SO SWEET! Looks sooooo much better than the coiled up stuff

Vespiquen -- Violent?

Buizel -- Looks like it's actually gonna attack, not just stand there.

CHATOT (through) RAICHU -- EVERYTHING CUTE!! GWAA!!

Riolu (through) Quagsire -- 'nuff said, everything works well.

Snover (through) Weavile -- Everything looks menacing, even the basic stages.

All the legendaries look like they had time put into them

Gallade and Gardevior -- Just look at them!

All eveelutions (minus g/s) -- see above

Porygon Evo-chain -- perfectly done, smooth and good poses.

Scizor -- Good proportions, much better than D/P



Now the bad sprites

Piplup line: just looks... odd...
Luxray: Killed the pose....
Machamp: WHAT!??!
All Ghost types (minus Spiritomb) They look too flat, but solid... not ghostly at all.
Seaking: FANGS!?!? WHAT THE HECK!?!
Sudowoodo: I never liked the sprite, since 3rd gen.
Munchlax: BAD!! BAAAAD!!
Marrill line: killed them. They're too small, too bland
Espeon and Umbreon: Too small, bad poses

Okay, that's enough. Too much stuff to comment on....

actly this makes it so you can ev train it better think of it as a pokemon hatched from an egg only you need to catch it instead of hatch it.


EDIT:rank up apertly(sp).

That's not what I'm worried about! I'd rather have a Lv. 70 Regigigas than have one at Lv. 1 and spend 5000 hours training it to Lv. 70. And the fact that the Lv. 1 Regigigas will still have Slow Start doesn't help at all. The only way you can really train it is with Exp. Share, because otherwise, it'll get obliterated because of Slow Start. Whose bright idea was it to knock his level down to Lv. 1 anyway?

I think the simple answer here is to just transfer Regigigas from Diamond or Pearl :p. Besides, I doubt that too many people use Regigigas just because of its horrible ability, so it's not really a big deal.

Does anyone know what the new Team Galactic Scientist is all about ?

What does he do in the storyline ?

The odd one
The games sprites and rooms seem to have a more cartoon feel to them this time,
go to the main site and look at the new e4 rooms and you'll see they show more three-dimensional sections and cartoony edges to the objects.
I pesoally think its a great cosmetic change.
I feel sorry for poor regigigas and i fell sorry for poor me who wont be able to get the regis in the game without restarting my emerald,trading,or hoping for an event. And the depressing thing about it is that the regis are hiding right there in Sinnoh and dont even have there own island but i still wont be able to get them.

He either participates in awakening Girantina or disturbing the weather
Only the Japanese, serebii, and some people who have already recieved there copy know
It is kinda cool serebii and coronis are basically done with the game
