    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. :lol: 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

    35 pounds?? That's a ripoff... Roughly converted to American Dollars, that's about $50. $15, roughly 10 Pounds extra from the usual US price of a new game. I obviously wouldn't know, but I've heard a few times that the UK pays extra for pretty much everything, atleast in comparison to the US. Is that true?

    I'm a cheapass *****!

    So the guy I was going to buy Pokemon Pearl was is just kinda a douchebag so I was like forget it, no Pearl for me. Well today I was talking to a friend of mine and I guess he has Pokemon Platnium, and has no use for Pokemon Diamond and is going to sell it to me for $5 on Monday.I just asked him if $10 was OK, he said yes and I just lowered it to $5 and he has no issue with it, I could probably get it for free if I wanted but I'm not a complete dick. It is kind of a bummer it's not Pearl( i wanted that one) but its fine, reliving my childhood for 5 bux is sweet!:thumbsup:

    Oh damn. Platinum might be more epic than DP, but Diamond for $5 is an incredible bargain. Congrats Cap'n, you just spent $5 to buy a $20 game. :lol: I don't think I have a friend that'd sell me a game for that low of a price. :lol:
