Subject:Trinity's First Pokemon Rant

(my x-posted rant from the pokemon community)

Okay, hello! I am Trinity. I have been playing Pokemon since 1997 (has it really been that long since Red and Blue came out?) I have yet to get Diamond and Pearl because my ds lite was stolen from me before Christmas and they're just now getting back into the shops (at least in my area...I don't know about the rest of you), but a lot of my friends at college have it. Anyway, onto my rant.

Today's topic: Unobtainable Pokemon

Now, ever since the games hit the GBA, I've noticed that getting the Pokemon from the earlier generation (like the starters and the legendaries) has become a complicated process.

You have to get a gamecube. Then buy Pokemon Coliseum (or Gale Of Darkness) (which is a pretty good game, I'll give it that) and then you have to play through THAT game and snag ALL of the Pokemon that are considered "Shadow Pokemon"....then you have to purify them and THEN, beat the game (you can't trade to Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed or LeafGreen unless you beat the game's story mode). Then, once you've done all that, then you can trade. And those are like....10-15 hours, maybe a few days of your life you'll never get back!

This especially true for those of us, like me, who loved the Pokemon of the second generation (Gold, Silver, Crystal),(ever noticed how Nintendo never seems to care about us? They remade the original games, now why not remake the second generation games...I for one would like to get a Lugia without having to wait for Nintendo to do a tour or without having to capture it in Gale of Darkness or Coliseum). We have to do this in order to get a fair chunk of the second gen Pokemon including the starters. This makes me furious! Why can't they make it nice and simple? *cries*

Second Topic: Special Event Pokemon:

Now, I am not pleased with the fact that in order to get certain pokemon, you have to wait for Nintendo to do some sort of special event and give you a special item. Nintendo doesn't do this sort of thing very often and not all of us are able to attend the events to get these special items so we can get the special pokemon (such as Lugia and Ho-Oh). And now, I found out that this is the only way to get three Legendaries from Diamond and Pearl without hacking my game and I thought to myself "WHAT?!" It's ridiculous! WHy can't they just make the items obtainable to everyone so we don't have to go insane while trying to fill our PokeDexes? *sighs* Oh well, c'est la vie, I suppose...
