(DS)

Game Profile

A new world has appeared in the Sinnoh region: the mysterious new Distortion World, where the normal rules of Time and Space don't apply.

Discover never-before-seen forms of powerful Pokémon. Beyond Time and Space lies a Pokémon unlike any other: Giratina™ Origin Forme. Players can witness an epic encounter between Legendary Pokémon. Travel across the Sinnoh region catching, training and battling with Pokémon.

Players who have wireless broadband access can explore the new Wi-Fi Plaza, a virtual Pokémon amusement park filled with activities, including three new mini-games where up to four players can compete at once. Up to 20 players from around the world can connect together in the Wi-Fi Plaza to experience games, take part in parades and even see a fireworks show.

The Global Terminal is where online players from all around the world can come to post their Pokémon for trade to other players without ever meeting or talking to them. This allows for a greater variety of Pokémon a player can collect, and also allows them to get Pokémon from other countries. Players can also use the new Vs. Recorder, which allows them to save and post "videos" of their most exciting battles online for everyone to see.

Enhanced Storyline: New characters add to the story, including Looker, a member of the International Police who is in pursuit of Team Galactic. Looker helps players throughout their adventure. Team Galactic has a nefarious scheme: They turn their sights on the Legendary Pokémon of Sinnoh - Dialga™ and Palkia™ - when the powerful Giratina also enters the picture (all three Pokémon appear together in this game for the first time).

How to progress through the game: Travel across the Sinnoh region catching, training and battling with Pokémon. Players must stop the evil plans of Team Galactic on their journey to become a Pokémon Master.

Additional Features: Battle and trade Pokémon via Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection. Players can connect with Pokémon Diamond Version and Pokémon Pearl Version (each sold separately) or import Pokémon from the Game Boy™ Advance games (Pokémon Ruby Version, Pokémon Sapphire Version, Pokémon FireRed Version, Pokémon LeafGreen Version and Pokémon Emerald Version) to complete their Pokédex.

Characters: Giratina, Turtwig, Chimchar, Piplup and hundreds of other Pokémon.

I'm so angry I should've bought platinum not pearl, platinum sounds like more fun and more features for the same price as diamond and pearl. But I'd hate to buy this game because it'd be like replaying pearl. Ugh.

Third versions of Pokemon games is like a Patch w/ DLC content. I hope the future Pokemon games would just use DLC so everyone does not have to buy same game again with least improvements.
