    Pokemon Platinum and DSi.....Pointless

    HI guys,

    Do you think Nintendo have made an error.. what I mean is on Pokemon Platinum you need to have a GBA cart inserted to catch some of the pokemon yet the DSi does not have a GBA slot.
    Whats worse is that there is going to be a bundle where you get pokemon platinum with the DSi which is totally pointless if you gotta catch em all.

    By the way the game is no better than its previous outings, think its time to call it a day for the pokemon games unless they can come up with something new.

    lol at you having a DSi.

    They will only call it a day with Pokemon games when people stop buying them, and as people continue to feverishly purchase anything with the Pokemon brand attached then it would be a financial disaster for Nintendo to stop or change the production of the games, if it aint broke, don't try to fix it! :thumbsup:

    As to the point of not being able to get them all if you have a DSi?
    Well, the idea there is to force you into battling with people who DO have what you want, you know, kinda like actually interacting with other people, not just sitting on your own at home playing kids games

    Tha's bit of a billy bargain the
    Just get him to battle/ trade pokemon with his friends, that's kinda what they want you to do I think.
    And yeah, Pokemon is Deffinetley a kids game

    Hey, thanks for this, didn't know about the gba slot thing. Will have to look more into it myself.
    Which game do you need in the slot by the way? I am sure I have leaf green lying about somewhere, will that work?
    At the moment I am waiting for GAME to ring me and tell me I can go pick up my copy.

    (Oh and I'm 20 in a month and yes I still play Pokemon, I keep coming back to it as somehow it is kind of addictive)

    EDIT: just had a quick look and found this:

    Will have to dig out Leaf Green now!

    Saying that Pokemon has had its day is pretty incorrect, remember how we all thought it was just a craze 10 years ago? Pokemon platinum, on its first day on sale in Japan, sold 10 MILLION copies.

    It wouldnt matter if they sold just 5 copies here, we're clearly not their target market any more.

    Also, they are great games - one of the best handheld RPG's i'v ever played

    gotta love pokemon

    People Cant You See It Coming.

    The Next Pokemon Game Will Have The Old Pokemon From The Gba Cart. (im Guessing) "gotta Catch Them All"

    Hell What Do I Know Bout Pokemon.

    i dont know why people hate pokemon so much, sure its been a massive fad craze ee etc. but the games are actually really good and of a decent length.
