    Default Situation Advise

    Hey guys;

    I've been around PokeDream for a long time.. 5 years or so but when the server swapped from ProBoards it must've deleted my old login.

    Anyways I'm back and I need a bit of a status update.

    What I'm looking for is just..situation, what I need to do, yeah. Just general advice to get back into things.

    I have a GameBoy Advance to, with LeafGreen and Ruby, GameCube ith Pokemon Colesseum, my first impression is to get a DS but it's kinda expensive. What should I do? I've also heard about this battling over internet, I'm not sure.. yeah i just need advice.

    Also whats the deal with the Mystery Gift system, I'm in Australia so I dont know much about it..

    And since LeafGreen is the latest game I'm gonna focus on that party till I make a new game. This is my current party:

    Rayquaza #1
    Blaziken #2
    Alakazam #3
    Mewtwo #4
    Dragonite #5
    Latios#6

    Thanks for reading and replying in advance guys I really appreaciate it.

    Thanks mate, I think I'll check out the Lite's, they seem to look nice.

    So these, Diamond and Pearl games, you can battle and trade over the internet with them?

    Thanks, nice to meet you too. Been a LONG time since I've been here lol. Actually untill a week ago I hadn't picked up my Gameboy from 2 years, my Blaziken is about 7 years old now, 8D. He was my first pokemon of my own, and I'll never give him up, I also used my cousins pokemon on her Gameboy Color when I was little...

    Wifi Chat, cool, I have an unwired modem but I dont think I have a router, and I looked it up, I guess I'll need one of those wifi USB sticks..

    So.. My line of thought is;

    I need the DS Lite - it's cheapest and easiest to deal with.

    I don't have Wifi, but I do have internet, so I ne the Wifi USB Connector to plug into my PC and create a Wifi signal..

    I need Platinum, 5 dollars more expensive and it has both Diamond and Pearl in it..

    Opinions?

    Get Heartgold or Soulsilver. More pokemon and more move tutors.

    Cause it's still more pokemon to catch. Different legends, and some people like both games, or like Platinum more then HG SS - I'm willing to give them all a try..

    kirby, think of this from his perspective.

    he has played gold and silver. he wants to experience the 4th gen for the first time.

    hell, i really enjoyed the 4th gen the first time through. i wasn't looking at it in a competitive perspective at the time, and most likely he wont either.

    and furthermore, the 4th gen not only offered some of the most pivotal battle mechanics that completely changed the way we play pokemon today, but it was the first example of successful online battling.

    the 4th gen aint that awful kirb :p

    4th gen was a good competitve generation

    yet D/P/Pl was aweful

    and there is a 4th gen game that isn't D/P/Pl with more pokemon and move moves
