    Default ~Official Platinum Recent Happenings Thread~

    About time I got around to this.

    ~The Rules~


    * Don't go off topic - only post if you have the game! Don't say "omg that's so cool!" - PM the user who posts.
    * Don't spam
    * Do not post unless you have a paragraph's (for this case, four good sentences) worth of information. We don't need separate posts for every little detail.

    Enjoy.

    Just tryed out the GTS.
    The Gts has 2 Levels, the bottom level is the same old, and the second level is all the email/battle recorder stuff from what I can tell. The Gts itself uses the same old format, but its alot neater. As for all the glitches and stuff....haven't tryed it yet. Doubt they will be though.
    Still, the trading side of things, it uses the same sort of system as before, search by the name of the Pokemon. The only thing thats really changed is the level selection (Which I believe is slightyl different, its Level 1-10, 11-20 now, so not much of a difference) and the actual selection screen thats different. I'll try and get a video/picture to show what I mean soon.

    Currently past Eterna City, just passed the Psyduck actually!

    Wish I could have documented this earlyer but oh well.
    Current team:
    Eevee
    Grotle
    Prinplup
    Murkbird

    I'm being lazy tbt! Avoiding quite a few of the battles, to get to the end.

    Ok, heading my way to Veilstone Gym.
    The game hasn't been that radically different from Diamond/Pearl yet. So atm i'm not as impressed with the Gameplay.

    BUT

    The visuals are like 0_o
    The animation is top noice, and its just a nice game to look at! The battle beginning is spead up as well.
    My Japanese is not that great (I only know a few words/key phrases), so i've read a story guide so I have a basic idea of whats going on.

    SORRY about the long wait for this post.
    I'll update later. Didn't mean it to be a stupid GTS post only. I'll post little details as well. Spent all day playing.

    What should I do because I have the game but I dont speak/read any Japanese;
    -I can quit and wait till the US version comes out so that will be more fun or..
    -I can continue how hard it may be to understand

    I have chosen a chimchar,
    I beat my rival and the first Three Trainers
    the first trainer haves a Starly lvl 5
    the second trainer haves a Bidoof lvl 5
    the third haves a Burmy(grass cloak) lvl 5
    they also gave Jublife Town a new look just somewhat modern.

    you first meet dawn and then Handsome runs into you talking bout something and gives you the Battle recorder.
    In the school you have still the two trainers but other pokemons:
    -the left has Starly lvl 6
    -The right haves Bidoof lvl 6
    Then if you can give the item you had to deliver to your rival, he gives you the Town Map.
    you leave the school and The Poketch director runs into you (just like normal)
    if you go to the left you still can get the Old Rod from the fisherman

    ~Route 204~
    haves three Trainers;
    -one with a shynx lvl 7
    -the second haves a Magikarp lvl 8
    -The third haves lvl 7 Budew

    ~Route 203~
    First your Rival walks into you;
    -Starly lvl 7 and Starter lvl 9

    Trainer 1: Kricketot lvl 7, Zubat lvl 6
    Trainer 2: Shynx lvl 8
    Trainer 3: Machop lvl 8
    Trainer 4: Bidoof lvl 4, Budew lvl 4, Starly lvl 4, Abra lvl 4
    (My Chimchar Evloved )
    Trainer 5: Psyduck lvl 8

    ~Oreburgh Gate~
    You get Hm 'Rock Smash'

    Trainer 1: Starly lvl 7, Shynx lvl 7
    Trainer 2: Bidoof lvl 9

    ~Oreburgh City~
    The boy leads u to the gym, with your rival standing before the door.
    you now can go downstairs in the poké center and obtain the the palpad.

    Just picked up the game. I've noticed that unlike past 3rd reincarnations, Platinum has numerous story changes. Also, the title screen music is eerier.

    Also, it seems custom text boxes are based off the in-game gender. Don't kill me as Joe and Coronis may have pointed it out, but Hikari/Dawn has a lot of rose-themed text boxes.

    I'll play it more when I'm free.

    Also, carrying on tradition, tree sprites are different in this 3rd incarnate. Yay?

    I'm currently training a team of Pokemon that I traded for in the Hakutai Forest. I want to go through the game with a Brawl theme team, meaning Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Lucario, Ivysaur, Charizard and Squirtle. So I traded over six eggs and hatched them in Platinum. Everyone is at level 16 and I'm trying to figure out the best way to make Pichu, Igglybuff and Riolu happy so they can evolve and I don't miss out on any good moves.

    Started the game. Went to the Route outside of Twinleaf (201?) and after hearing everyone talking, got Turtwig and defeated my rival's Chimchar. I've got to say that the battles are more like in Emerald, they seem a lot faster than in Diamond, atleast.

    Went to Lake Verity and heard Mesprit. Went to Sandgem and got TM 27 from Rowan. Caught a Shinx with Intimidate north of Sandgem and went to Jubilife. Received the Battle Recorder, but have no idea how the thing works. Delivered the parcel to my rival and got a Quick Claw from one of the buildings, and also the Pokétch. Going to the Ravaged Path to explore.

    Also does anyone know why Rowan gives you your starter?

    There's certainly not as much snow around Shinou as the pre-game info led me to believe(I actually don't think I've seen ANY since Twinleaf!)...I guess putting random patches of white everywhere would have been too much effort for them, but I would have liked to see something new in the routes. At least most of the cities have gotten a touch-up.

    Houndour can be found on the route right after Veilstone...excellent. Too bad I'm keeping Monferno on my team, but I'm definitely using Houndour once I go through the English version, whenever it comes out. Rhyhorn's there too, although I'm not a big fan of it.

    Other than Monferno, I've got Gabite(they let you get into the Gabite cave as soon as you can get through the bike path! And EQ is still down there, too. Absolutely nothing overpowered about that, nope nope.), Rotom(how nice of them to let you catch it right after you beat Gardenia), Kirlia(Ralts pop up on the route south of Solaceon. I'm hoping to find a Dawn Stone sometime in the near future since I'm planning on making this guy into a Gallade), Psyduck(well, why not?), and an HM Slave Bidoof. I did quite well against Maylene despite being slightly underleveled(my highest level Poke going in was Lv.28), but then again beating everyone while underleveled is pathetically easy in Pokemon if you have any idea of what you're doing. And the EQing Gabite helped against Lucario just a bit.

    On a completely unrelated note, you can find a Dusk Stone quite early in Platinum...so of course the Pokemon with Dusk Stone evos are unavailable. Still, this means that I might not have to wait too long to get that Dawn Stone for Gallade, right? Right? :(

    Around Eterna City. I would probably be at a m ore advanced place if it wasn't for the fact that I'm addicted to the WiFi Square right now. The mini games are just too fun.

    Currently, I have a high leveled Monferno and an Alakzam that my friend traded to me from his Pearl.

    I caught pretty much all the legendaries last night, including Regirock/ice/steel since I managed to trade a Movie Regigigas across to my Platinum. I think I just need to catch the Regigigas in Snowpoint Temple and that is all of the non-event legendaries.

    Then I might get started on the Battle Frontier.

    First let me say this game is really hard for someone who doesn't know even a little bit of Japanese :<

    So basically I just started my file, and got my starter, a Piplup (female on my first try, I wasn't even trying for it :P). I didn't want to use Piplup, so I made her lose to my rival in order to keep her UT. That battle took forever because stupid Turtwig only uses Withdraw >_>. Then I muddled my way through the other stuff until I got to catch my own Pokemon, and I caught a Shinx named Korie with a Premier Ball. I'm now headed to Jubilife City.

    be sure to read the rules of every section before posting ;)

    Little Miss Stalinist/Secret Al-Qaeda agents (i.e. Ellie) would be a ***** even if she was a conserative republican. What makes her the way she is happens to be the fact that the webmaster of this site let's her behave like this. (Of course, I would never make a liberal a staff member at any forum I'd be in charge of, regardless.)

    When you stand behind this board in Pastoria, you'll occassionally see a Croagunk wander across the screen. Neat. Completely pointless, but neat.

    It seems like Gamefreak was too lazy to adjust the levels of the trainers & wild Pokemon on the route between Veilstone and Pastoria, because Wake's Floatzel is ten to thirteen levels higher than anything you'll see there. The route east of Pastoria has some stronger trainers on it, but not quite strong enough to let you train up to Wake's level easily. Then again, I haven't even gone through half the journey from Pastoria back to Hearthome, so who knows? All I know is that I need to level up if I'm going to beat Wake's stupid Floatzel.

    The great marsh looks a lot better this time around, although the mechanic of getting stuck in the mud still annoys the hell out of me, and half the pokemon are still annoying crap like Bibarel and Wooper.

    I've noticed a "score" on the trainer card. I have no idea what it's for, but it goes up by three every time I beat a trainer(and I assume it goes up for other things too). I'm sure if this was anything important we'd have heard more about it already. (and yes, I'm playing as Lucas. What can I say, Dawn's new outfit has WAY too much pink for my tastes.)
