hi. im new here. i joined so that i may learn new things about pokemon, and get experience in the competitive battling scene. I hope that by the international release of platinum, i would be good enough to get into the battling scene. QUESTION: I signed up for serebii forums about a week ago. can i still join the adopt-a-person(?) program after the release of platinum.? thats about a few months from now, may be during early 2009. can someone answer this.? please. i want to start in platinum because, if i join now, it's a little bit too late isnt it.? but i will prepare my team now, then i will just transfer them to platinum when i get it.
