    The version I will get. Hope it's better than the previous one, though the previous was good too.

    Wow, theses games look shit.
    Nintendo slaps Pokemon on any old game...just so they can sell their shit

    Bah, I'll quit griping and let you noobs enjoy your Pokemanz.
    But, for all I know, these games could be decent. [​IMG]

    Which version, which version, can't decide, guess I'll leave them both.
    Still gotta finish Shiren anyway.

    I assume there is, there always is with the Pokemon games...

    I believe I'll be getting this version since I've always gotten the Blue games first. =P I guess, it's hard to tell which is which anymore.

    Edit: I found a list of differences here http://serebii.net/dungeon2/exclusives.shtml and it seems like there's a handful exclusive to each. Interesting...

    I never understood what's fun about Pokemon. I can't see myself playing this no matter what.

    The interesting thing here is that I'm something of a veteran from at least the first two generations and I loved it then, but I never bought R/S/E, and I tried Pearl...and I absolutely hated it. It was more of the same thing I've been playing since at least ten years prior and all it offered were new things to catch and the battle system was about the same for the most part (while two-on-two battles were interesting). I honestly dragged myself through the game and hated every moment of it. I just wanted to be done, then I got to the Elite Four and I about gave up.

    PMD actually is what I'd have guessed to be an evolution (if you'll pardon the pun) on the old games' battle system. Moves can actually be long-range! It actually matters where your creatures are placed, etc. It was also my first Mystery Dungeon game so go figure, eh? =P

    It's just a new breath of life to a mostly dead series, to me anyway.

    That info is outdated....you can get all the Pokemon no matter what version you choose,you just need WI-FI,I like Rogue-Like games and thought this game was going to be excellent.I was wrong sadly,I mean sure the game is okay but honestly I'll stick with Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer as JPH said they put the word Pokemon on the game and it sells like hotcakes.

    Oh well,I'll just wait until Izuna 2 comes out,I hope all of you enjoy the game as far as I could tell it's not a bad game just gets old real quick.

    Ironically, it took merging Pokemon with an old game series, based on a 30+ year old RPG style, to breathe new life into the licence lol

    Roguelikes Forever!

    ^^^
    I'm not denying that...they have certainly breathed new life into the series,however as far as Rogue-Like games go this game isn't on par with Shiren >_< I will not deny that it isn't a good game though.


    Rogue-Like games FTW! Indeed.

    Pokémon on the GBA looked like nes, Pokémon on the DS looks like GBA. I guess that's the old one step forward two steps back ordeal.

    Soo..with much shame I admit I checked out the actual website of this game. It seems that you can send email/Mobile messages/WII messages to your friends if they "register" ?

    Is that kinda new to DS games? or have I missed something...

    I think it's good. Pokemon battle mechanics + dungeon crawler. But don't mind attention to me. [​IMG]

    I like dungeon crawls so I'll definitely be checking this one out.
