    my pokemon experience is limited to Rangers and some Dash and i havent played leaf green or red or rescue teams.
    As I investigated, Diamond is seems more popular, since I dont know which one is better, would a veteran please explain their differences and tell me which one is better, dont want to upset anyone.
    i made a topic before and someone told me they have different monsters in it, so all the game events, stories, bosses and dialogs are same and just monsters are different? if yes, how much percent is unique to each version.

    thnx ppl. [​IMG]

    p.s. chimpokemon episode of South Park WAS great.

    The difference is mainly in exclusive pokemon and legendaries. Honestly, the difference between the two versions is minimal. Get whichever you want, because the GTS and WFC makes it easy to get the pokemon you need.

    Besides, even so if you're new, you're probably not into competitive battling at all.

    There is like almost no difference whatsoever.
    Just a marketing scheme from Nintendo - so you'll want to collect both versions.

    All it is Palkia is on Pearl and Dalgia on Diamond (those are the legendaries) and maybe a few other insignificant Pokemanz.

    If your friend would prefer something manly over something girly, get Diamond.

    Since... Pearls are often associated with girls.
    Diamonds are unisex.

    But other than that, any of them are up for grabs.
