Oh man, I've GOT to play tomorrow! I can't wait...

I think he didn't tell us to make it more of a surprise, that way more people will play. Although I don't know if that was the best place to annouce it, I certainly have never heard of that site...

I hope it's some sort of event poke they'll give out somehow....

Yay, I typed that on my friends account!! I changed the DS clock, but nothing interesting happened... I think Game Freak would've made some sort of protection for that!!

Endless shinies would be my first guess, then an in-game Darkrai or Shaymin event... the possiblities are endless!! I can't wait!! I'm so glad I live in NZ - it's going to be the 12th earlier than for most other people :)

Hehehe, I told you on the phone that it was endless shinies!! You got a little too excited...

I've been searching Google, but so far I can't find any more info... I may be posting again soon after midnight though - it's 7pm for me!!

Edit: I just read on http://www.pokebeach.com that it may be different at Lake Valor (The one that gets bombed). I must add that this was someone's educated guess.

Pffffffft.
It's just hype to make people more enthusiastic about playing the game pointlessly, only to find out that there was nothing special at all and you wasted several hours of your life because of being deceived by an idiot.

Those of us with even an ounce of sense left in their bodies can see right through this stupid sham.
But if there is something different, it will most likely be spread over WIFI, and not coded into the game itself.
Hence, why I don't waste my life playing games in expectancy. I know other, more productive ways to eke away my life.

In conclusion: Nothing is going to happen, ever, as Nintendo are all just plain snobby that way, and you're foolish for buying into this.
For those who can't tell, I'm incredibly annoyed, as I am at every lie designed to take advantage of a fellow man.

Thus have I spoken. Thank you, and good night.
- DNA

But... it's on the Game Freak website!! And the 12th of January is Junichi (I think that's how you spell his name, it's different on different websites...) Masuda's birthday!!

I guess only time will tell. *Sits on floor to wait patiently for 3 and a half hours...*

Edit: I've been playing for a while... I've tried the door of the old in, I lost the lottery, I went to Lake Valor, I tried to go into the Valor Lakefront cafe, but it was closed, I visited the ingame Game Freak director... NOTHING HAS HAPPENED YET!! I'm sorry I ever doubted you DNA (For the moment... but I'll keep playing) Anyone in NZ got wi-fi? That'd be something worth trying...

Well if it is something that doesn't happen in the game itself, then it would have to be Wi-Fi, which works on the time of the world and not the game. Hehe... me got Wi-Fi.... So I could see if anything happens....

And Mudget, you did set the game a day behind before the 12th right? When it comes to most of the stuff that happens in the game, it must have 24 hours to set itself to work on things that happen to the date.

Did you ever think that it's probably Japan time only? If it's the "hidden" Pokeapps, this is going to be a real disappointment. Those apps SUCK. Right now it's 10:37pm on Friday in Japan. Also,

IMO this is definitely true. Companies and ads may want and try to deceive people to increase profits and to gain attention, but they can't lie completely. They just make a big issue out of nothing. So, i think that this will probably be just a minor thing in the game or something not-as-fascinating as they make it sound...

Pokémon Dp "Jan 12th" "Suprise" revealed

Well, as some of you know, yesterday in his blog, Jun'ichi Masuda mentioned for people to play DP on January 12th (his 40th Birthday) to find a special suprise. The community all jumped at this speculating on massive events expecting Darkrai, Shaymin and so forth to be given away. However, this was quite jumping the gun. Early reports are coming in saying that the suprise is the fabled Diamond Dust weather effect in Snowpoint City. It sometimes occurs on its own, but is quite rare. Like the snow that usually adorns the area, its essentially clear with small crystals coming down. It is purely a cosmetic change as theres nobody to battle outside in Snowpoint City. These reports are still unconfirmed but this is the only thing being reported from Japan regarding today's changes so far, and its unknown if it will translate across to US and European game cartridges. I'll update you as we learn more

Until Next Time, See Ya



El Oh friggin' El.

Well, it's the 12th here now, but I dunno about Japan. The snow at snowpoint doesn't look any different...

I'll go check that Game Director guy...

Edit: No, he still says the random old junk he always says.

This is just a guessing game. You would think the blog mentions anything about what version of the game (Japan, U.S., etc.) he is talking about and specifically where this "little suprise" is.

Maybe he means "different" like how every day is different. You know those Japanese and their poetic sayings.
Damn them.

If you have any proof of how January 12th will be different than any other day of the year in the game, I'd definitely like to see it.

I don't have time in my life for people buying into stuff. Until I see pics from somebody reliable, my opinion remains unchanged.

There is nothing on Pokemon.com, except for a shadow of Darkrai. :0

The snow in Snowpoint is different. Sparkly. Kind of boring.
