    Black and white are said to be above all the others. The storyline actually matters for once, they changed gameplay mechanics to simply be better, blah blah blah...

    The issue is you'll be spoiled by it and the older games will seem lesser in comparison, so play Platinum first.

    Quickly finish Platinum, then transfer over the pokemon to black/white. And then finish black/white ^^

    can't really transfer the pokemon to black/white with only 1 ds xl [​IMG]

    so it seems like diamond and pearl are out of the question since noone mentioned them yet, think i'l start with platinum and play black or white after that [​IMG]

    Diamond/Pearl are simply outclassed by Platinum. Platinum just does things a million times better.

    You have to finish b/w first before you can transfer Pokemon over to it. The only Pokemon you can transfer before finishing are the three legendary beasts and Celebi that you got by a recent event.

    If you want something fresh then go B/W.

    If you want to experience the older ones and to appreciate the new ones more then play Platinum.
