It is currently 2010 and this game was made in 2003 and i'm writing a review of this now, enough said, this game and ruby,emerald, is my favorite of all the pokemon games currently and past, plus you gotta get this game if YOU WANNA CATCH EM' ALL. becuase in the current pokemon games Pokemon Diamond and pearl and heartgold and Soulsilver you can't trade for a pokemon you haven't seen ("which stinks")over the Global trade center
A very good game and beats those other new sorry excuses for pokemon games.(Pearl & Diamond)This is a true pokemon game and has excitement at every turn from the first time I played it in 03 I have promised to keep it and still haven't broken that promise. There are a few problems and doesn't have pokemon from older games but is a wonderful game to buy. For Poke fans like me you should love this game. This one of 3 of my top fav Pokemon games next to crystal version and leaf green. Be sure to check these out.
