You looking forward to anything already announced beforehand? I haven’t been following news nor am I even able to play this when it comes out, but…

I can’t wait to hear this redone among other nostalgic music I remember from playing Diamond.

I’m just hoping the Pokemon available in Platinum, which was my first video game, would also be available in the remakes before the post-game, probably via the Grand Underground

From what I remember about the Gen III remakes, Groudon and Kyogre were both version exclusive to their respective games, so I assume it’ll be the same for Gen IV


Also gonna take the opportunity to get some N Art on the thread, fuckin’ love this cinnamon roll

Mine was Ruby, but I was 7 when I got it so I was really dumb and couldn’t grasp the typing mechanics properly that I thought things like…

“Grass beats anything blue”

And then had my Tropius’ wrecked by Glacia’s Glalie after I :pkmn_pikawut: after seeing Magical Leaf not having effective damage.

it is often said that Diamond and Pearl weren’t that great and that it was Platinum that made Gen 4 so good. As such, I hope the game will incorporate more parts from Platinum

Ice is just frozen water, therefore Ice is just another Water type
