Sorry but unable to download an image from this site (at least not in the same way as I've done it previously). Would appreciate any help with that.
This DS game is I'm told a very new edition of the Pokemon DS saga & I'm also told that it's an excellent price asmost retailers haven't reduced them much or at all yet!! (Incidentally it's my 10 yr old boy that's told me & he knows about these things you know!!!
Pokemon Pearl is a traditional Pokmon RPG that takes place in a region called Sinnoh.
In the Sinnoh region, there are two Pokmon that symbolize the region. They appear in the Sinnoh reigon's myths and old folklore. One is called Dialga, and is said to have the power to control time. The other is called Palkia, who is said to have the ability to distort space. The sinister organization called Team Galactic is trying to rule the region by utilising these two Pokmon's power. During your adventure to complete your Pokedex and become the Champion, these two Pokmon, and Team Galactic, intertwine into the story and lead you on a fantastic journey across the Sinnoh region.
When you set off on your travels, you play as either a boy or girl Trainer. You can utilise the DS's dual slots to transfer Pokmon from the GBA Pokmon games and you can link up with Pokmon Ranger to access more special content. Pokmon fans have caught glimpses of Mime Jr., Lucario, Munchlax and Weavile in Pokmon movies, and these Pokmon feature in this game.
One of the best aspects of Pokmon games is the ability to trade and battle with other Trainers, and Nintendo DS allows you to connect with other Pokmon fans wirelessly. What's even more intriguing is that Pokmon Pearl will be compatible with Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, allowing you to trade and battle with other Trainers around the world. Pokmon Pearl and Pokmon Diamond also feature voice chat capabilities, so you'll have no problems communicating with your online friends.
New Online Capabilities: Share and battle pokemon with players around the world on WFC and players can chat with friends using the Microphone.
Alternative Wi-Fi game play opportunities to battling, such as cooking cakes and exploring tunnels for treasure with up to 16 friends!
Real-time clock feature changes the time of day based on the DS clock. The Pokmon you can catch vary based on the region and the time of day. Also, certain Pokmon moves' power changes based on time.
More Elaborate Pokmon Contests: Players can use the accessories and dress up their Pokmon. Players make "Poffin" out of berries to raise their Pokmon's contest stats.
New dual-type Pokmon, new/altered moves, and new special abilities add to the already deep strategy of Pokmon battling.
3D environments and updated graphics.
Import previously captured pokemon from all of the pokemon series on the GBA.
Version Specific Pokemon: Pokemon Pearl and Diamond each contain version specific pokemon - if you want to catch 'em all you'll need to trade with friends or online players to complete your Pokedex.
