    You aren't missing out on much if you don't pre-order. Outside of minor things, you are fine if you wait.

    I pre-order because frankly I haven't been disappointed enough in quality yet to move beyond it.
    Peace is a lie. There is only passion. Through passion I gain strength. Through strength I gain power.
    Through power I gain victory. Through victory my chains are broken. The Force shall set me free.

    wc3 reforged marked me with pre-orders. if that didn't happen I'd most likely pre-ordered already

    There are games that don't convince me to pre-order, but I was referring specifically to pokemon. I have pre-ordered all games since Gen VI.

    There is this too. It is a pokemon release just before holidays. Stores will have copies and eshop is always an option.

    Having two different versions was good back in the 90s and the 2000s when the internet hadn't become ubiquitous yet, so using artificial scarcity to drive people to trade and talk did get that social interaction going. But once they allowed online trading there was no reason to trade with other people in person anymore, and with the rise of social media you can now talk with other Pokemon fans online. Just call the next Pokemon game "Pokemon 10" or something.

    Game Freak should also stop plastering legendaries on the box art. Does anyone really care about the mascot legendaries? You only acquire them towards the end of your playthrough anyway, and by that point people have found other Pokemon to become attached to.

    Atleast ICLA managed to do something Game Freak will never achieve.
    Optimize the code. No need to compile two ROMs when one is enough.

    yet they have the balls to sell the same thing two times
    just sell one game and let the player decide which game he wants to play
    I know from their money making aspect this is amazing but from the consumerside this is just scam

    on a sidenote there will be a day one patch which could bring platinum content but knowing pokemon for more than 20 years by now...
    it won't happen

    Given that Diamond information was on the Pearl cartridges in the originals as well ... I am not surprised.
    The only difference is that there is a programmed switch in the code to switch between the two.

    Well that's how this bullshit has always been. Didn't you notice 25 years ago?

    "Ramanas Park allows for you to use Slates obtained through the Underground to get various Legendary Pokémon. Raikou, Entei, Suicune and Ho-Oh are exclusive to Brilliant Diamond and Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres & Lugia are exclusive to Shining Pearl"

    Seems interesting, wonder if you can shiny hunt them in that location.

    According to Leaks, the only shiny locks known are the Gift Mew for Let's Go data and the Gift Jirachi for SwSh data.

    Well then, that's good! The less shiny locks are in place is better. Not surprised about Mew and Jirachi though.

    for now till the postgame the game is more like a remaster except the underground and customisation
    the real remake starts at the postgame

    well, yes but back then the code was different (most likely due to hardware space limitations)
    one of the reason why firered is most of the time the base rom for all hacks (it has the better code iirc, don't qoute me on this one)

    you can get every shiny except mew and jirachi (which you get if you have a sw/sh and LGE/LGP savefile)

    The files for Diamond are on pearl's cartridges and vice versa in the original.

    The only difference is that this is a simple switch as opposed to the files just being there.

    Anyone with the Sword game that doesn't have the shiny Zamazenta (or is willing to make another profile on their switch to get extra copy? :P)? I got spare codes as I got only Shield so can trade one shiny Zacian for that...

    Why did ILCA think Cynthia needed to be buffed? I was overlevel for everyone of the Elite 4 until Lucian (on par) and then on Par with Cynthia with max level being 66 after using Rare Candies ... her Garchomp swept my team and I have ice and dragon moves.

    I didn't think they would give items and sets like they did before you even beat the game the first time.

    Yup, BDSP E4 and Cytnhia got buffed compared to DPPt
    and their rematches are even crazier (Cynthias Garchomp goes to lvl 88 with 510 EVs)
    you basically need an exact game plan against her, likely involving setting up/buffing a sweeper of your own to outspeed and one-shot her Garchomp, or some other cheese .. or X items

    But Cynthia was always the hardest/strongest champion, so this is fine to hammer that fact home
