I'll only be importing if its more than a year's wait for the US. This ofcorse depends on if they follow the 10 year anvi for the US or if its just for JPN. I will be getting Soul Silver, because I like Lugia more than Ho-oh, and I got silver back in the day. But who knows I might pick both up
I'm gonna import both because i imported Diamond and Platinum from japan and since all the text is in Hiragana and Katakana I will have few problems reading it. It will just be a slow process if i try to translate so ill do what i did with the other two and blunder around enjoying the game and figuring out the story if they differ slightly from the originals. plus ican rub it in my friends' faces.
Hell no, ill wait tell it comes to ME.
And mostly i would rather not waste time confusing myself when i dont know a single character of japanese and have to pay about 2x more then i should becuase of the shipping.
Im not sure if I will import since it will ruin the fun when I play the english version. Also, I will be getting soul silver since I had silver version in 2nd gen, but I might get both and keep silver as my main.
