And... The reviews are pouring in.

Somebody should add them to the article. I would but my computer is acting all screwy right now. All I know is Famitsu gave it a 36, the reveiwers all gave it 9's. Zabbethx 19:16, 22 September 2008 (UTC)


There's still a link to Torn World in here somewhere instead of Ruined World, but I can't find it. It's important that we call it what it's been dubbed as by Nintendo, and that's the Ruined World, not the mistranslated Torn World. So, if anyone happens to see that, would you mind changing it? Thanks. --ニョロトノ666 21:14, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

"Torn" isn't a mistranslation. Nintendo just went with something different. (Just...clearing that up...) Anyway, I don't see any links to "Torn World" after using Ctrl+F.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 01:14, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
ya, cause I fixed it--Kkllnn blastoise 15:15, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Spring 2009 Rumor

People, that magazine scan is from Beckett Magazine. The issue that is posted in is from last November, and it is the first thing listed in this page's archive.

----HoennMaster 03:49, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Beckett? Then there's no way it's going on the page.
Got that, everyone?--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 04:17, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
And the English translations normally take about 6-8 months to come out anyways. R.A. Hunter B. 01:08, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
I personally agree with the rumor, but we still need reliable sources on release dates.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 04:13, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
As do I, since Pt came out in Japan two weeks before DP's second anniversary, the same thing would likely happen with the English. But yes, the Beckett rumor has been around since before JAPAN had a concrete date. TTEchidna 04:28, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Resort Area Villas

Can anyone post a pic of that? - unsigned comment from Drybones (talkcontribs)

A gallery isn't necesary anymore. hfc2X 06:21, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

A picture would be nice. Drybones 09:13, 3 October 2008 (UTC)Drybones: A member of Team Rootbeer.

There are a lot more things that deserve an image on this article than the villa. -Sketchies 10:31, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

The 'Un-DeFog-able Mist' in Eterna Forest...

Seems more like shadows being cast by Forest Canopy than the mist, with shafts of light breaking through and leaving those patches... Using the picture of Gardenia outside the Old Chateau in the Eterna Forest article as a reference, there's even an edging to it where it thins and lets a little more light through.

Or am I just being crazy? --JaffaJHDA 17:26, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

I didn't understand... but seems like you think that it is fog? It's obvious that it's nothing but the shadows of the clouds, or the suppossed overgrown trees that cover the sky. hfc2X 20:28, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
That's what Jaffa is trying to tell people. R.A. Hunter B. 05:29, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, I should have made myself more clear... It's listed in the 'Map Changes' section as a 'Mist' that can't be DeFog-ed and it's been bugging me for a while. I didn't want to jump right in and edit it without opening up a discussion first, just in case someone takes offense or disagrees... --JaffaJHDA 10:52, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
It needs to be changed. It's misleading. R.A. Hunter B. 18:27, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
That screen-shot is way too dark. Seriously, that shadow is nowhere as powerful on a real DS. Gywall(Talk) 20:17, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Release Date

I added the Japanese release date to the first paragraph; if you have any problems with it, do what you wish. Mwakin21 20:09, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

My Pokémon Ranch Patch

I read this on Serebii that they got info on the patch for my Pokémon ranch for japan. Its unknown if other patches will come out in different languages. It's free to upgrade notice UPGRADE which means you have to already have it. Luckario 21:43, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

It's not released as a patch as such. I believe it will just be re-download, like other updated titles. Anyone who hasn't brought it after it gets updated, will just download the updated version. That's how I understand it anyway, and yes - I have a Wii and have updated software on it. Gywall(Talk) 11:56, 24 October 2008 (UTC)


Can somebody please go through the whole Platinum article to search for spelling and grammar mistakes? I had done that yesterday, even making the same changes to the trivia entry that Hfc2x just edited, but I forgot to save, leading to the changes being lost. I don't have time in the next few days to go through again, so to whoever does, thanks! R.A. Hunter B. 20:32, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Tense Error?

I went through a few bits of the article, and I saw many "will be" and other such future tense verbs. Now that the game is out, shouldn't the verbs be in the present tense? The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 21:36, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

They should, but im not going to do such a boring job if you wanna go thrugh them all you can --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010
Yes they should be. Thanks for looking while I was gone. And thank you to UltimateSephiroth for actually changing it. R.A. Hunter B. 18:52, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Im so glad you found something to do on a Sunday. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010
You're welcome, though I reckon editing only a few mistakes :P UltimateSephiroth (user · talk · contrib) 18:12, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
At least it's something. R.A. Hunter B. 20:44, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Comestic "Error" Trivia

About that, I would like to point out that this is the Torn World.... rules need not apply. I would not be surprised if this was on purpose. Keep in mind that the Platinum Orb is the most unique item in Pokémon History... it disappears in link battles with other versions. The Orb may be seperately programmed due to this. - unsigned comment from Paperfairy (talkcontribs)

Please remember to sign next time. And for the Orb, this is in the Gen IV series. They wouldn't put things like that in. And I wouldn't go as far as saying that the PO is the most unique item. There is a set place to find it, while other items, like the Light Ball or Lucky Egg, are a very low find rate, and even then, it's totally random. R.A. Hunter B. 18:34, 4 November 2008 (UTC)


Let's discuss this, then. I believe "Mom" is refered to as Johanna in the contest hall by Keira (and during contests). Does this seem like enough reason to call her Johanna? --Blazevoir!! 01:05, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

That did come to mind, but it is more practical to just say "the player's mother". Glinn Mgraw 01:20, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I guess you're right.--Blazevoir!! 01:21, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Exactly, the only reason Urutapu is being like this is because the original edit was made by me. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010

Uh, Admins (usually) aren't that shallow. All the other games didn't name the player's mom, but Diamond and Pearl, and I assume Platinum, did. However, would anyone ever call their own mother by their name? No, they would call her "Mom". Therefore, Bulbapedia should probably do the same. I have mixed views about this, so I think an Admin should settle this.--BlazevoirTalk Contribs 20:43, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

SUCK UP just cos someone is an admin doesnt mean they are right, it just means in the past they have added loads of stuff to Bulba.--Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010

Please stop arguing over things like this, Guardian. You've gotten into word fights with people before, and nobody likes to have to see that. R.A. Hunter B. 22:25, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
And your being a troll over it. YAY!--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))

You know, Guardian, you would be tolerated far more if you didn't go around acting like a tool. Glinn Mgraw 01:26, 19 November 2008 (UTC)


Please don't touch the links for mom or Johanna in this article any more. They have been fixed by Kkllnn, and to avoid fights, don't change them again.

And I realize that this sounds like I'm trying to be an admin, but I don't want to have things constantly changing in the articles. R.A. Hunter B. 22:43, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
