    No rom requests! Anyone who does so will be banned.
    The clean ROM only works with the Supercard DSTWO, AKAIO 1.8.6 and Wood R4 1.26. There is a patch available for the other flashcarts.[/p]

    you should also add "no asking for roms" on your "can i have the rom" part.

    by putting "The game isn't out yet", you're implying that when it does, you'll give it to them.

    just saying..

    Added to the hype thread index under March 2011, I changed it so now the month listed is the release month due to a suggestion by gifi4.

    Anyways, does the shape of the game region look like New York like how Sinnoh looks like Hokkaido?

    I've always known review copies get delivered early to er, reviewers, but they're sending them out THIS SOON?
    Honestly I don't believe it.

    No, they made the carts into sentient beings and spread them in tall grass where you must find, battle and capture them with their case in a play field with your pet dog who, to your surprise knows 4 elemental combat moves before being able to insert the cartridge in your Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi system.

    I'm gonna miss "Isshu" and "Mijumaru"...and "Shimama"...and "Pokabu"...maybe I should have waited until the American release to play the game, all of these name localizations are getting me down [​IMG].

    Maybe someone could make a patch changing the names back to the Japanese ones.
    I mean, Issu sounds way better than Unova IMHO

    Not all of the game is translated.
    He wants the official translation but with the Japanese names.

    I can't nickname Unova "Isshu". Moreover, I don't want to nickname my Blitzle "Shimama"...heck, I might even look into de-localizing the names myself.
