I can't find on the am3 site where the Sept. 28 date is. Please provide an explanation. --Argy 16:30, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Can someone fix the formatting?

I don't know if this is just my browser or what, but there's a overlap in the "Connectivity" section. The "Diamond and Pearl also feature connectivity to Pokémon Ranger..." part (and the two "edit" links for that section) is partially blocked by the the StrategyWiki box. I don't know enough about formatting to fix it myself, but could someone else do so?

Might be your browser. What do you use? --TTEchidna 04:45, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
Firefox 2 at normal zoom. Here's what I see (circled problem area) -Ringtails 05:26, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, it happens for me, too, I run Firefox 2 as well. --TTEchidna 05:36, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Transferring Pokemon from GBA to DS

can it be any pokemon game on the gba? or just FireRed LeafGreen or Emerald? please help. Carluverdrm2004 21:23, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

...Of course all of them. Why would it be only FR, LG and Emerald?--Urutapu 22:59, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Just that you can't do the Red and Blue, Gold and Silver game boy games on it. Unsigned comment by Maryland157

GBC games don't fit in the DS slot. All GBA games do so all Generation III games are fine. --FabuVinny T-C-S 16:26, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Too bad Nintendo can't create a machine where you insert your R/B/Y/G/S/C game in one slot and your Generation III in another slot or your D/P card above the empty Gen III slot (you can only transfer from either Gen I and II to Gen III or to Gen IV). A Small Plasma TV (Like the ones at the demo stations in stores) would be situated above the machine. Once you insert the Gen I or II Game Pak and Gen IV Game Card into the machine, you would turn on the machine and an option would appear (you would control the menu with a Gamecube controller [don't ask why...]) to transfer the Pokemon to your DS card. Say YES and the boxes from the Game Pak would appear. You would choose the Pokemon you want to transfer to your DS Card (same Pal Park rules APPLY!!!) and say YES two times. Once the machine has done its thing, the machine will turn off and you'd remove your game card and game pak. Once this is done, you'd take out your DS, insert the card, turn it on, bypass the screens, start your game, and go to pal park. And, hey, presto, before you know it your pre-GEN III pokemon would be in your Gen IV card! themaestro2.0 20:21, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Linking Question

Can you do link-up trades and battles with just One Game Pak on Pearl and Diamond? Evil Sonic 00:33, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

You should ask someone directly on their talkpage.Pokemaniac102 00:41, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
It's been a looong time since somebody didn't ask on a user's talk page. Because then anyone can answer here, not just the owner of that said talk page. *coughs a little, since she um, breaks that sometimes*
Anyway. What do you mean by just one game pak..? Tina δ 00:47, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

(Sorry for not asking someone on their talk page) By one Game Pak I mean , one person has the game and the other person chooses the download play option to link with the game. Evil Sonic 01:07, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

I see. Ask TTEchidna, he knows everything.Pokemaniac102 01:11, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
Ah. No, then. You can't download D/P like that.
Also, um, don't you think asking TTE for everything is a little.. I dunno. Kind of 'hey, there's OTHER people too.'. Tina δ 01:12, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
Of course. But I can't think of anyone else right now.Pokemaniac102 01:14, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
BMGf, maybe? TTEchidnaGSDS! 01:48, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

New Version has admitted 2 a new pokemon version! If you don't believe me, click here:[[1]]LordKaien 14:10, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Guess what. Bulbapedia isn't here for speculation. Glinn Mgraw 14:32, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

It's just an annonucement, cuz everyone thinks that d/p is it. It's not.LordKaien 15:31, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Judging by the URL, that mailbag came out February 4, 2008. I think that they were talking about the sequels to Pokémon Mysterious Dungeon. Ultraflame 04:12, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
What about this speculation?? *Pokémon Platinum, set for September release. Giratina on the box* --{{SUBST::User:Keirou/sig}} 16:27, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
Many Pokemon Websites are saying that blueskY has info of the 3rd Game BUT this just a rumor

1.The name of the new play will be "Pokémon Platinium", as already Giratina had been said will be the protagonist of the game, it is expected that this play leave in September.

2.Volkner leaves the Sunyshore City Gym and a new leader take his place, like what happened in Pokémon Emerald with Wallace.

3.The Sinnoh underground will be able to enjoy with Wi-Fi.

4.There Will Be a new called island "Battle Island" that will have the same function as the "Battle Frontier"

5.The game will have the new forms of the protagonists of the Eleventh Movie will appear: the Alternate form of Giratina, the Flying form of Regigigas?, and the other form of Shaymin,is said that it will be an Ice type, while the new forms of Giratina and Regigigas will have the Ability of Levitation. Sounds better than D/P


It also sounds like a tremendous hoax. We shouldn't add anything to the pages just yet. Coro-Coro will be running the official story in five days, so we should be able to get at least a little information then. --Martonimos((Talk)) 23:16, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
I know blueskY said that even though i have heard of it


Well The scans are up on the internet now, seems like it is confirmed. --Keirou 17:04, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
I still feel like there's room for doubt.. Tina 17:06, 11 May 2008 (UTC) Read the disambiguation at the bottom.David Aipom

That was added in February by an anonymous IP. I'm not sure how reliable we can call that. Platinum... I mean, it just doesn't seem to fit with the other two. And who would the version mascot be, anyway? Only four more days, then we can start adding information. --Martonimos((Talk)) 20:57, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
P.S. When someone added Platinum to the Pokémon video game series page, it was removed less than half a day afterwards. My guess is that whoever did it missed the disambig page, and would have removed it anyway. I don't want to come across as a prick here; I'm as anxious for DPv3 as any of you. I just think we should wait for solid information. --Martonimos((Talk)) 21:02, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Matronimos, I agree that Platinum doesn't seem to fit with Diamond and Pearl but then can you say that Crystal went with Gold and Silver, (crystal should be named platinum)and Crystal should be the name of this game as it goes well diamond pearl crystal, however obviously Nintendo didn't plan it this far in advance.

So if it was to be linked and fit with Diamond and Pearl than it should be opal (especially as that is connected to Giritina).

Yeah, I didn't think of the Crystal thing until afterwards. I believe it'll still be Opal, as they already have Giratina in place the way they had Rayquaza last time, while they seem to have picked Suicune at random for Crystal (I doubt they were planning a third version when they made Gold and Silver, although that had become part of a pattern by the next generation). But that's not the point. It could be that I'm absolutely wrong, and it will be Platinum, have Cresselia for a a mascot, and have a wi-fi underground that screws over the players of the other two versions. We can't add any of that, though, because it's unconfirmed. In three days, though, we'll have our answer (broken record much?). --Martonimos((Talk)) 18:42, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

I told U, but did U believe me? noooo. Oh and number 5 has 2 be faked, as pokemon with different sprites in different games are rare, and nintendo wants 2 keep it that way.LordKaien 20:12, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Actually, number 5 is the only one I think is plausible. And the game you pointed out was just Mystery Dungeon 2. That's already out in English, I believe. --Martonimos((Talk)) 01:23, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Cave Entrances?

Well the guy that put that on the article (Diamond and Pearl are the first games to have cave entrances facing east and west)obviously hasn't played FR/LG as Lost Cave has them already. Well was that really important? xD hfc2X 18:03, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

That's inside Lost Cave, not the entrance. DP have the entrances, from the outside, on the sides. TTEchidna 02:34, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Connectivity between Korean and non-Korean versions

The article refers that a non-Korean Pokémon name on a Korean version or that a Korean Pokémon name on a non-Korean version will appear as empty spaces. How is this possible? Why didn't Nintendo patch this? And yes, I know that Nintendo of Korea is only about two and half years old. BTW, has this drawback been fixed in Platinum, from what is known at the moment? Pokemon lover 21:02, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm no expert or anything, but maybe they mean that there are no letters/characters where the Korean ones were. Fi-ray ►strike! 21:08, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

is this trivia worthy?

I just notice this with the English version. On the box, right next to the Pokémon logo it has the ® logo. And the in game screen it has the ™ logo. What do you think? --Pokéboy93 08:22, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Would this be trivia?

On the battle menu, the fight button is red, the run is blue, the pokémon is green and the bag is orange or yellow. Possibly a generation 1 reference?--Midnight Blue 06:49, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

I never thought about that. I think it could be!--I'm Pokelova(Talk) 06:55, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
Should a higher up agree on it?--Midnight Blue 07:00, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
Well of course everything using those color combinations refers to the first generation.... red, blue, green and yellow are very generic colors. I don't think this is worthy of a mention every single time. —darklordtrom 23:37, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
Yea you're right, red, blue, yellow, and green are common colors. So never mind about it.--Midnight Blue 03:15, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Today's figures on sales?

I was just wonder if it was possible for someone to find up to date sale figures of D/P because this is only up to 2007. Water type Master 12:12, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Is this right?

The blurb on my Diamond says: "as you search for the Pokémon that rules space in Pokémon Diamond Version." Was there some mistake? Did they mess it up? Last I checked, Dialga ruled time.ポケモン恋人(チャット)(貢献) 09:49, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

This image begs to differ. Smashman 10:17, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
I have a picture too. I can't upload it at the moment, as I'm on the Wii, but I'll try tomorrow. I'm telling you, it says space.--ポケモン恋人(チャット)(貢献) 09:43, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
Here it is.I told you so.--ポケモン恋人(チャット)(貢献) 04:34, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
Are both of your games the USA version, or do they come from another country? I just checked my Canadian Pearl case, and it actually doesn't get specific. Just " you search for the Pokémon that rules in Pokémon Pearl Version." Virtual-Z 04:42, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
Mine'll be the Australian version, since I'm living in NZ, right?--ポケモン恋人(チャット)(貢献) 06:31, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
I suppose. The cartridge should say. Virtual-Z 06:39, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
I have the Australian version of Pokémon Diamond, and I mine has that error too. It should be trivia worthy, as it definatly is an error. The Austrlian Pearl, however, is correct. たかはりい talk 07:11, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
The trivia states that this error 'was corrected' on the boxart of other regions. Was the Australian boxart the first to be made? Since I don't think anyone knows that I changed it to 'this error is not present on the boxart of other regions'. Synner 16:46, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Cartridge colour trivia

They were the fist Pokemon games without a special cartridge matching the games colour, or holofoil sticker.

I don't really know how to word it, so I'll let someone else. XVuvuzela2010X 23:49, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Actually, I've just noticed The storage media is not colored., so forget I wrote anything... XVuvuzela2010X 23:52, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
Eh? My Diamond game cartridge has a holofoil sticker. Maybe I am wrong. :O --Han Ji-Wan 23:54, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
Ah no wonder. I think I'm mixing the Japanese and English game cartridges. :O --Han Ji-Wan 23:55, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
I worded it a little better. -NotSteve 0_o 16:55, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Dark/Psychic/Fighting starter Pokémon

I am not completely sure, but i think this was pure speculation, so why is it mentioned on the page? If i am wrong, please link me to the official source mentioning that. Renoir 12:41, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Box art mistake trivia?

It's amazing how the massive Dialga could still stand on his right hind leg, considering what his doctor did to him.

I just noticed as I was grabbing images for a PowerPoint presentation I'm doing for my class that there's a piece of Dialga's rear foot missing. Looks like someone fooled around with the erase tool in Photoshop a bit too much. Joking aside, does anyone think that this could be trivia? BulbaPediaAid 04:01, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, it's not only here. Wikipedia's has the error too. The Japanese boxart has their logo there. Does the erasing angle match any other angle on the art? --Abcboy (talk) 04:08, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

pokemon catchable chart

where does platinum's table of catchable monsters fit here? how does it compare? - unsigned comment from Icleario (talkcontribs)

The title of the page should stay the same.

It has been suggested that the title of this article be renamed "Pokémon Diamond and Pearl." I'm okay with the suggestion, but even though other territories don't use the word "version," North America does, so we should refer to them by their full North American names. Thank you. Crunchdog29 (talk) 23:33, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

I Agree. They only remove the "Version" for territories not speaking English. where i come from (Britan) They still use "Version." PearlSilver (talk) 20:51, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

Change from Barry

You should probably just refer to barry as "Friend" due to the fact that the majority of people in England or America will call him Something else. For example, i called him Lewis. Plus as Far as i remember, Barry wasn't a Pre-set Name. PearlSilver (talk) 23:42, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

It's one of the names you can choose for him, and it's also his name in the anime as well.--ForceFire 04:18, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
Really? Barry it is then! PearlSilver (talk) 20:48, 28 November 2015 (UTC)


There isn't a single link to The Underground on this page. I would have thought it deserved its own section, since it's one of the few minigames that pokemon games get. --Sandrew26 (talk) 15:13, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

Nintendo Wifi

Shouldn't all the references to wifi being a feature of the game note that the service is no longer available (and therefore is no longer a feature)? --Sandrew26 (talk) 15:14, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

I believe so. I'd say go right ahead, but I'm not a mod. Unowninator (talk) 05:40, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
I'm going to make those changes, then. --Sandrew26 (talk) 13:35, 1 June 2016 (UTC)
