Crapload of stuff today, including that the Kanto Legendary Birds now roam the land like Mesprit and Cresselia.

Now the only significant Legendaries missing are Suicune, Entei and Raikou.

Even more reason to get it.

So swarms and PokeRadar are back. Big surprise.

However, here's something really cool: YOU GET A HOUSE. A high-class Secret Base.

Also, more gift Pokémon: Besides Riolu and Eevee, Porygon and Togepi are now free gifts.

And the Elite Four gets upgraded after you get the National Dex. Their Pokémon are from Lv65-Lv78. Good for leveling up.

Strongest Elite Four in Pokémon history?

>_>

And I hated running after Cresselia and Mesprit. Oh poo.

But at least there's a good reason to re-fight the Elites.

HO-LY CRAP!

You can fight your rival on weekends after beating the Elite Four. You battle him 3 times, and each time his Pokémon get stronger, capping at the third battle (I assume you can keep battling him after this, but the levels don't get higher).

His levels from the third battle on? Lv79-Lv85. Stab.gif

Serebii also shows how Rotom changes form, as well as the new locations for the Pokémon.

I think it's awesome they have a really nice challenge even for those with Pokémon lvl 100. (Outside of the Battle towers I never visit.)

Also, I take it the Wi-Fi Square is Worldwide, and if it is, KG PARTY IMMINENT.

Strongest trainer in Pokémon history?

And I thought Steven, in Emerald, was strong with his Lv 70's.

I sort of quite want this now.

Updated move lists and Move Tutor moves. Caterpie, Weedle, Kricketot, and Wurmple learn Bug Bite now. All at Lv15, but still, that's kinda cool that they're not completely worthless anymore.

Magikarp, on the other hand, hasn't changed at all.

Amity Square now lets you take in your starter, no matter what stage it's in. Bring Infernape into Amity Square!

Lots of other neat stuff. I'm getting this game - no question about it.

Tentative Release Date: March 22nd, 2009. Of course, this will probably be delayed, but at least there's a date to look forward to.

I wouldn't put it past them to delay it so that they can release it exactly two years after releasing Diamond and Pearl.

Am I the only one that feels old when you say that? Seems like yesterday to me.

Hopefully the PAL release isn't that far behind...but alas it probably will...again.

Just started playing. Even the intro is different - no hint at Johto or the Red Gyarados. The TV starts out talking about Professor Rowan, and then your rival comes up and says that you should meet him. I guess time will tell what else is different.
