If you have played diamond or pearl you might as well not waste your time getting platinum. Its a good game, but other than a few minor changes in the story and some snow on the ground you might as well be playing diamond or pearl
When I put this game in my Q, I thought to myself finally the new pokemon game is out. It's actually an exact replica of Diamond and Pearl with changes of course. But if you haven't played a Pokemon game recently, this is the game to play. I got bored of it quickly beause it has the same pokemon, same story, and the same characters. I think the creators should have made it in the future so it could have that. Bt, this game bored me.
I love this game better than the past pokemon ds games. I hang out in the wi-fi plaza a lot. The battle frontier is something that never gets boring to almost anyone who played this game. And also new Formes of Giratina and Shaymin. After a third try this game is not to be missed.
