    I wanted to know if Pokemon HG/SS are available in the US game stores at the moment, I mean, does anyone of you have the retail copy? Just want to confirm, because my country gets new DS games 5 days AFTER the DS games hit the shelves in the US.
    When did it come in the US game stores? Date I mean. Thanks in advance.

    I got it (SS). Picked it up monday morning, although I know it was in the stores on Sunday morning.

    The local stores in my area only had enough stock to cover the preorders, nothing on the shelves, no displays, and not even any promotional posters or anything.

    I pre-order SoulSilver a month or so ago, and my mom picked it up yesterday while I was at school. I've been loving it so far.

    I already got it, though. My gameshop had it really early, apparently. They had it on the 16th already!

    Wooooooooo!!! I tried my luck on the other gaming store, in my country the 2 major stores are - Lucky Stores and Electronovation, So I just dialed Electro, asked them about Pokemon HeartGold, he said "yes we have it!" first I was like OMG, then thought I'd ask him about Pokewalker, so I asked "Its the one with the Pokewalker in it, right?" he replied "yes, we have SoulSilver too"

    Sweet! I'll get HeartGold no matter what, asked the guy to reserve a copy for me, he's a friendly guy, so only thing left to do is - "go there".

    xD Another middle easterner, ye I guess importing has become great, did they pre-order? lol, anyways, here in Bahrain it costs 28 BD, which is 74 US Dollars!! Expensive if Americans see this since there the DS games are usually ~$30 or so, but cheap if Bahrainis see this.

    I was fortunate enough to get both versions =)

    They are pretty awesome so far =)

    They have a lot to top with the next release of Pokemon Games.

    Yeah, the good news is that the game store owner began to start ordering from the US, before it was UK, so that's why he gets them early now, that's great!!

    I bought SoulSilver, but only opened it. I played HeartGold on my Acekard 2i though. I'm waiting for some RNGed Pokemon for SoulSilver before I start it.
