IGN: Pokemon Platinum Hands-on

IGN writes: "Back in the day there was Pokemon Yellow, a kind of recap and review of Pokemon Red/Blue/Green that was bolstered by the special role played by Pikachu. This time around, Pokemon Platinum is doing the same kind of service for Diamond and Pearl, remaking those games with new features and placing special emphasis on the Giratina Pokemon. We picked up the Japanese version on the weekend and put it through its paces, finding a game that's both familiar and fresh and reminding us, yet again, what makes the Pokemon world keep turning."

The story is too old to be commented.

Gosh, I stopped at the Pokemon Trading Card Game back on the GameBoy Color. I also had Yellow, and I was friggin into the whole shebang. That was like 8 years ago.

I played the GB Advance games (I think they were Gold and Silver?) but I stayed away from buying them. I was way too obsessed for my own good!

Gold and Silver were still on GBC.

Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire, and Crystal were on GBA.

BTW...Pokemon FTW!!!

I have Pearl and I love it!

When Nintendo runs out of precious metals/stones to name their pokemon games?

A Pokemon MMO, of course. If you think about it, the Pokemon universe is perfectly designed to be an MMO but Nintendo's approach to online gaming is still pretty awkward. Hopefully, they'll move towards a system similar to Xbox Live and the PSN which would make a Pokemon MMO more possible.
