    So I just saw the news for Europes release date and I was wondering, how many gbatempers are still into pokemon. at 19 I still am and I'm planning on going to grab heartgold when it comes out. So how many of you are going to pick up a copy, which one are you getting and do your friends/family/whoever you know think your odd for doing so if your over the age of 15?/weirdo/A child stuck in an adults body/or any other possible negative thing someone could say about a pokemon trainer [​IMG]

    Nope.

    I bought Platinum. I'll pirate HG/SS and send pokemon from there into the 'legitimate' Platinum game. I doubt they'll use HG/SS often in tournaments online and in the real world often, anyways.


    Surprisingly, I changed my mind. I'll get Heart Gold..

    Seriously? Someone needs to organize his priorities.

    I bought the PAL version already back in 2001.

    Still haven't seen a good enough reason to even want to pirate this, they should make new games instead with get this...a new engine!

    Probably will get SS. HG has a shitty name IMO.

    I'm definitely going to buy Soul Silver. For one, you can't pirate the PokeWalker (I know it's not essential, but it's pretty cool). Second, it's a remake of such a great game, so I would be stupid not to show my support.

    So, my 2,000th post will be:

    "I'd never buy both games :/ one is enough, and then pirate the other to gather the other unobtainable pokemons, and trade with myself [​IMG] "

    That's a lame 2,000th post, so instead it'll be:

    "HRTH!"

    Pokemon already bought about my entire childhood. I think it's about fucking time they buy me a game now.

    I haven't bought a Pokemon game since FireRed. Not that they're bad, but there's nothing sadder than a tall, 16 y/o kid buying Pokemon at Best Buy or something. Not to mention I haven't bought a DS game in years. Yay piracy! Even the big titles I pirate. It's just a lot more convenient than Wii pirating (not to mention the DS doesn't have No More Heroes).

    Pokemon games are pretty much the only games I own so I'm sure to buy one of the two new versions.
