Default The Platinum Status Thread

Well, I highly doubt anybody has the NA release of Platinum yet (but if you do - congratulations!), so I figured it would be good to put this thread out there before Sunday, also known as the day I've been looking forward to for quite a long time now. In the midst of all the Platinum excitement, it'll be great to compare adventures with other people on release day. Once you have Platinum, give us updates here - let us know what your Pokémon are like, what you think of the game, how far you are, etc. ^^

And because I can...

Countdown to Platinum (EU): 60 days!

In the meantime, you can use this thread to express your excitement. :3

It's another two months and five days for us in Europe. But I'll think positively and say I'll have enough by then.

But yeah, I can't wait for Platinum, it's going to be great.

Ouch. I forgot Nintendo of Europe is hellbent on making its customers suffer. :( Sorry to hear that.

Which raises a good question: Are any Europeans here planning on importing the North American version?

Edit: And it looks like Peegeray's usertitle holds true. xD

I'll have to wait until June most likely. In the UK i'm going to get it on a TTDS update, making the game a lot more worthwhile. Also they'll upload cheats around that time. I might just wait 2 months and get the normal copy on TTDS with a new TTDS copy of D/P.

I added a European countdown, although it makes me kind of sad. :( You guys shouldn't have to deal with a two-digit number.

*excitement!*

My spring break was crappily timed. It comes out on the last day of mine. :[ I've pre-ordered my copy, though! Gamestop makes the Giratina figures first come/first serve when you pick up the game rather than when you order it, so I hope I can get one... but I'll probably do what I did with Diamond anyway and end up walking around the mall for half an hour before GameStop even opens. xD

Same here! At least it's still early in the trimester, so homework/tests/quizzes/etc. will be at a minimum.

Yeah, my teachers all tried to get tests out of the way before the break, so I guess I'm good. :V

I wonder if we're going to get the Wi-Fi event for Rotom's key right after the game's release like Japan did?

Hopefully. I just got back from GameStop; my copy is all paid for so all I need to do is go in and get it on Sunday. :D

They're opening two hours early, too, just like they did when Diamond and Pearl were released. Awesome.

Preordered mine at Walmart (The ONLY reliable place. The shipment for D/P was several MONTHS late at the only other game store at the time. We now have 3, but...)

My Easter Break won't come for awhile, so... Yay?

Got the Giratina figure on preorder. Should I post pictures?

If you want. :p

Oh, are you getting the bundle that Wal-Mart is offering? It sounds cool, but I don't care that much about the DS case.

Nah. The games are usually $50-$60 here, and besides, I already have a Phantom Hourglass DS carrying case :D

Sigh, I probably won't get Platinum for a while. I'm already pushing it with the Christmas present and Shaymin from Toys'R'Us.
Good news is my next Report Card'll come in soon, so if I do good there's a chance~

It isn't coming out for us until I am guessing a good time after June...we don't even have a release date and we can't pre-order because they say it's much too early to do that now :(

But I am very excited :)

It's honestly A-OK with me, I get to save money so that buy my own DS and stop running into my sisters room to steal hers and do a daring escape through the window.
