I'm not, I have a rather extensive collection on diamond of natured ditto. i plan to breed anything i need on diamond and send it over to platinum wen it arrives for added exp and easier levelling.

I have two DS's. But I don't want to trade, it seems like cheating in a way, I rather start a new collection in Platinum.

No way! My Diamond cartridge contains a nearly-completed Pokedex, as well as one of every pokemon in the world, and my Pearl will have a ton of stuff on it, too.

I think I'll trade in the third-gen games, though... Although maybe not Ruby and/or Sapphire, since I can get unlimited Jirachis in them, I think...

I'll put off trading in D/P until 5th gen comes out, when I can transfer all of my pokemon to a new set of games.

I only traded 6 pokemon from my Diamond to my Platinum as a team, however I have got all the legendaries and 316 other pokemon in Diamond, so I am not going to trade unless I need it.

I probably will when it comes out.
That'll be a pain, I'll have to trade more than 500 pokémon and as much items as possible.

I'll probably ask one of my friends if I can borrow his DS for a while.

I'm trading some pokemon over (for Dex, event extras like Regi and Shaymin, and a few EVed). I like making a team on a specific game and using it on just that game. I traded over my Weavile to use since it has False Swipe so I can SR for shiny legends, but that's about it.

Way to much blood, sweat, and tears into that game to ever give it away

Probably not, I'll trade the legendaries that I know I won't use to Platinum just to fill the dex and keep everything else like EV-enhancing items and competitive battling teams on Pearl since they're already there. Plus it doesn't hurt to get two events with both my games without the hassle of restarting.

i'm thinking about it but i don't think i ever will, 160 shinies & 60 events is a bit too much to throw away just like that^^
(also to trade to platinum)

I'm confused here: do you mean trade some Pokemon over or, like, trade the actual DP Game (cartridge)???

I think he means both...

Anyway I probably won't...

It isnt out in the UK but when i do, ill use Pearl as storage (too many pokemon to trade) and use platinum for challenge runs and tutors. First challenge is trying to complete it with only Riolu and Buizel (and HM poke who will not fight) Riolu can only evolve after aaron, buizel never.

If you have one of every Pokemon wouldn't that mean you have a completed Dex? O_o


No I will not trade it in cuz I don't know if you can clone in plat.

It's the same as D/P, they both use the same GTS O_o

There's no way I'm trading in a game I've bought, it's a waste of money. Not only that I've spent 400 hours on my Pearl, the only thing I have left do to is beat the Battle Tower. AND I am a collector, I have all the games, and I intend to keep it that way.

Oops, miswrote that; I have one of every pokemon that I have in my pokedex that are available in the games from third gen and Diamond. The only ones I am missing from the boxes at this point in time are Celebi, Glameow, Purugly, Shieldon, Bastiodon, Mismagius, Magmortar, Palkia, and Arceus (I know I spelled some of their names wrong...), but I just restarted Pearl, and am currently trying to work on a team to play through that game with, so soon I'll have all but Celebi and Arceus (until it comes out at a TRU event) in Diamond, as well as every alternate form of any pokemon that has an alternate form (different gender forms, Unowns, Burmys, shinies, etc.) in Pearl, and all of my main battlers in Platinum. Everything is going according to plan... Bwahahaha...

Probally not, I'll just use Diamond for trading pokemon for evolution and transfer my elite pkmn to Platinum. Then I'll restart or let my sister borrow it

My Pokedex on Diamond has 490 entries.

So will I trade Diamond in for Platinum?

Hell.
No.

I think I will...
Especially if I'm planning some other time to restart my Diamond game.
After I restarted it, I may trade some to Diamond, especially the ones with new moves due to Platinum Move Tutor (Rampardos with Thunder punch, Alakazam with Signal Beam, etc...), which I'll use especially before the elite 4.

One reason for restarting D/P is to search and catch legends with good IVs, especially you only have one for each game.

Never! I love my Diamond. I have put a lot of work into that cartridge, and I don't plan on ever trading it in. It'll be lost or broken before I ever stop playing it.
