Umm, so yea, don't double post or only type 2 words. Iirc, it's against the rules.
Anyway, I'll trade Shaymin and a few others over from Pearl, restart pearl, and manage to get the 2 starters I didn't choose so I'll have all 3 starters in Platinum. I'll probably keep Staraptor as my flying and Luxray as my electric. As fo my 6th wildcard pokemon, I don't know who I'll choose, but it'll probably be Espeon or Garchomp.
I'll battle every trainer outside of the E4 and Victory Road by the time I get my 8th badge, and I'm going to try and get all of the Arceus plates and such at my earliest convenience.
I guess I'll also catch every pokemon I can before the E4, which will help in completing my pokedex, or getting it near completion.
I'm planning on winning Master Rank in all of the Super Contests before the E4, and I want to catch a Feebas & evolve it as well.
So pretty much, I'm doing a lot of stuff the same way I've always done it, but I'm going to be more ambitious with ctching, battling, and training.
