I voted for Diamond...







I don't know I guess I just like Dialga more than Palkia.

I cant think of a name
12th June 2009, 1:42 AM
I voted Diamond, just because I never played Pearl.

Why no smilies except for pokemon ones?

Well since it is a discussion about Pokemon it has to be related to the topic.

Why I voted Diamond is also because I never played Pearl.

I like pearl because its pink, and pink is more unique than blue.(NO IM NOT "FRUITY" SO DONT ASK)

12th June 2009, 4:00 AM
....Spheal is better then anything diamond has or ever will. the version that has spheal as an exclusive (If it is one) will always be better, no matter what anyone says.

I like Diamond more because I have also played through Pearl and it makes Turtwif look bag, seriously the pokemon in gyms of pearl are rubbish.

The fact that Pearl is pink is the reason I chose it over Diamond.

That being said, I like the exclusive Pokemon in Diamond a lot better.

Regardless, I voted for Pearl.

Pearl is an awesome game. Diamond i dont like because of the stupid storyline.

Pearl is an awesome game. Diamond i dont like because of the stupid storyline.

I can't tell if you're being facetious or not, given that Diamond and Pearl's only storyline difference is that one has Palka and the other has Dialga.

That said, I prefer Diamond, primarily because I prefer Dialga's design to Palkia's (although staring at either of them for too long and they both begin to look unappealing). It was fortune that my friend happened to pick up Pearl, so the Pokemon distribution wasn't much of an issue.

I like Pearl. I like Palkia and I used to play it non-stop.

I like pearl most, cause only real men buy pink.

The real reason is because I always choose the underdog versions of pkmn, and most people are afraid of buying pink and pearly stuff, so i chose pearl.

In reality I'm indifferent, but since I've only played Diamond, I have a preference towards it.

18th June 2009, 7:27 AM
Diamond, because it's main color is blue. And it has Dialga.

Sadly, Pearl is pink, my least favorite color.

I have Diamond because I'm a little rock-obsessed. I even bought when I haven't got a ds just because it was named after some rock..after a month or so I decided to buy a DS...

Now it comes down to rather I'd Want Dialga Or Palkia...I Choose Diamond though...Cause I Just LOVE Dialga...;483;

Ghost_MissingNo
29th June 2009, 4:39 PM
Pearl, because it is my main game, I have 410 out of all the 493 on the pokedex so far, it is the only game in which I have encountered pokerus myself so far, Palkia pwns and err... Because I have the most pokemon on it. :P But really, ever since learning more people were gonna buy Diamond than Pearl before the games came out, I decided to make Pearl my main game since I normally choose the opposite game to which people like the most. Mainly because I dare to be different and also because I can get many of the pokemon on that version that some people might not have because they brought the oppostie version. Unless of course they brought both versions...

Blivsey
29th June 2009, 5:00 PM
Well, I'm pretty much obligated to defend Diamond....

But Dialga is better-designed than Palkia IMO (though I don't really like either), and Diamond gets the Scyther, Murkrow, Larvitar and Aron lines, which outdo the Pearl-exclusives for me.

foxyman1167
29th June 2009, 5:08 PM
I didnt buy it. My bro bought both copies for himself and after an hour of yelling he finally gave me Pearl. I was fine with the color, and Palkia is better than Dialga.

It kinda annoys me when people say "I like X better than Y because I own X", even though both are similar (except with pokemon exclusives, which I guess I don't really like), but meh, those are people's opinions, so I put up with it. Anyways, I've tried them both, and they are VERY similar, so I just chose Pearl because I randomly chose it.

Diamond, because Dialga is in it and 'Diamonds' are very crystaly and shiny =)

2nd July 2009, 11:00 AM
Pearl because, unlike anyone else, I am quite fond of Palkia. Mostly because it stands on two legs and Spacial Rend > Roar of Time imo.

Plus its name reminds me of leukoplakia.

Dialga owns Palkia

Bonsly owns Mime jr

Stunky owns Glameow

Diamond gets my vote

2nd July 2009, 7:26 PM
The Pokemon in the game are the only difference between the two. However, Pearl is my main game, and Palkia is my favourite of the three dragons, so I'm going with Pearl. ;484;

Diamond because the mascot is cool and it had Mukrow/Honchkrow in it.

Diamond has better Pokemon(Skuntank,Dialga etc).Thats why.

14th July 2009, 4:18 PM
I prefer Diamond because Dialga rules. Steel-types have so many defenses against so many types and dragon-types only have two weaknesses, both of which are neutralized by the steel-type traits.

Fail.

dialga can control time,while palkia can't
Palkia can Control space while Dialga can't

Anyway, Pearl. I knew people would bandwagon with Diamond because it's blue and no other determining factor ethier than the boxart color. Just because Pearl is Pink instantly means it sucks. Plus the main Poke is blue so it'll instantly be bandwagoned.

Besides you can't get Palkia in Daimond.

I like Diamond more because I have also played through Pearl and it makes Turtwif look bag, seriously the pokemon in gyms of pearl are rubbish.

This post is full of so much fail I can't comprehend.

22nd July 2009, 12:42 PM
Aren't they pretty much the same? o_O I voted for Diamond because that's the one I have. That's the one I have because Palkia is more stupid looking the Dialga. I only got Diamond because I wanted to battle over Wi-Fi. XD

*Hides from ~Spacial Rendation~*

i agree with that. ;) but palkia is a slightly better battler than dialga, for me, because of less weaknesses and it's a bit faster, i think. other than that, i like the way dialga looks better. also, i like diamond better because it's my storage game with my valuable shinies, (valuable to me anyway ;)). though my third copy of platinum, (yes, i have three), is my second valuable one because it has a lot of good items and other shinies. :D
i have three platinums because the first one i have completed the villa, well, almost, i just need the chandelier, and other things. the second was for restarting and playing it over and over, but then i thought i lost it, and i had gotten a lot of store credit from selling my unwanted games, so i got another, then ended up finding the copy i thought i lost. XD

I like Pearl more because everyone likes Diamond more. Just because of Dialga. Personally I'm a fan of Palkia.

24th July 2009, 11:12 AM
I voted Pearl because I am extremely biased and adore Palkia. ^_^;

...Plus, I've never played Diamond. Anyways, I find the whole Diamond VS Pearl debate thing a bit ridiculous to be honest, they're the same game with different legendary's and a few different Pokemon here and there. Not to mention those different Pokemon can be obtained through trade, so I don't see what the big deal is.

24th July 2009, 11:55 AM
I like Pearl more since that is the game I got and began to work on first.

I only used my Diamond as a game I can restart many times in order to get multiple TMs, items, etc. to trade to Pearl (now Platinum) to make my Pokemon there better. ;)

I chose Diamond because Diagla learns better moves and Palkia doesn't. Palkia has better stats than Dialga. But I like blue more than pink so ya that's sort of why.

3rd August 2009, 3:02 AM
Platinum. But between those two... probably Diamond... (I own Pearl... and I don't bother using Palkia... I just catch it for the heck of it) Anyways blue and pink are my favorite colors so colors aren't a reason I would like the other one better...

And about Dialga... I find it better and cooler just because it's a unique type combination... and when I say unique I mean one of a kind and also because it's not a type combination you'd think of right away... like a water dragon.

About Palkia... I just don't really like it... yes I must admit that Spacial Rend, looks better then Roar of Time... but I don't base Pokemon on the looks of their moves :/. Personally I'd rather use Kingdra then Palkia...

It's Diamond for me. When I saw Dialga I was like 'oh, that thing looks freaking awesome'. But Palkia didn't impress me. It was too pink looking for my taste (I'm more into darker stuff). Plus those sphere's on it's shoulder reminded me of those ridiculous poofy-arm things old kings used to wear.

Speaking of dark things, does anyone think a shiny version of Dialga werein it's dark blue becomes black and it's metal parts become orange-hot would be cool?
