I don't know if you guys know – but if you don't – Pokemon HeartGold and Pokemon SoulSilver will be released in US and Europe next month. Though, it has already been on Japanese shelves since last September. I for one, couldn't wait another month to succumb to my childhood memories of Johto.
In fact, I went ahead and imported a Japanese copy, just so I could get a head start. I still fully well intend to get the English version in March – but until then I will happily frollock in my Japanese world with Cyndaquil hot on my heels.
