    Pearl for 20 bux.

    Yo people of the Pokemon thread, I was wondering if me buying pokemon pearl from a guy at school for probably around 20 bucks(no more than that, possibly lower) would be a good deal. Simply asking do you guys know of any stores(no web sites) that sell pokemon pearl/diamond for anything cheaper than that? Thanks.

    $20 is good, definatly. Even lower and that's pretty good, as most places would sell a used DS pokemon game at $20+.

    However, I really recommend buying it for a low price, selling it for a higher price for profit (eBay), and then using that money (and a few more dollars) to buy Platinum. Platinum is so much better than both Diamond/Pearl; Diamond and Pearl are the exact same with a few different pokemon. Platinum has a bunch of new features, upgraded mechanics, visuals, and even plays faster (... trust me, it's a big plus even though it doesn't sound like it). There's finetuned/new story elements too in Platinum.

    If you've got the money, Platinum is just plain better than Diamond or Pearl. ... Yes, I know I say this in about every "buying a pokemon game" thread. Sorry. >.>;

    There are competitive battlers around the world playing pokemon at age 25, Capn. Even though pokemon is potrayed as a kid's game, as you said, it's a great game. And when you delve into secret game mechanics, like how a pokemon's stats increase (no, not that level up thing :P), things can get far too complicated for a kid to understand. Such things make it being above a game just for kids, and even a competitive game for adults alike.

    CK but really? I know theres alot of people adults and teenagers who like pokemon but majority of them probably would laugh at your reason. I blame the 4kids dubbed anime that makes pokemon looks retarded. >_>

    People only laugh at that reason because as you said, 4kids gave it a terrible childish reputation; as with any other anime they've dubbed.

    That, and because you can't explain such complicated game mechanics like DVs to the morons who always assume too much; they're the stupid ones, after all. :P

    Wrong thread, my friend. >.> Use the battle thread and trade threads for their respective purposes, alright?
