Okay whats you're favorite thing in pokemon platinum? As for me, it would have to be there are so many legendaries to obtain! They have the regis, the legendary birds, the three elf legends, cresselia, palkia, dialga, and, of course, Giratina!

You forgot Heatran, Darkrai, Shaymin and Arceus lol.

My favorite would be the Battle Arcade in the new Battle Frontier. It's a new, creative style of battle.

new battle frontier is definitely awesome.

I also like how Weavile, Roserade and eeveelutions and evolution stones are available before E4.

Wai, what? You can capture Zapdos, Moltres, and Articuno in Platinum?

I like the return of the Battle Frontier.

For me it's got to be the new sprites and movements. I was really impressed with the new movements when your pokemon come out into battle. Budew for instance opens it's buds slightly and you can clearly see a red flower bloom. That really surprised me!

woohoo i just got it today but im only at samgem town right now so i dont know what the greatest is...well its more comfortable since you practically start the game like the past generations, starters being given to you instead of taken, for insteance.

I like the actual variety in-game trainers have now. (not including team galactic)

The new animations are nice esp your own pokes.

Distortion world is kinda a pain, (the riolu egg I got hatched there. lol )

You can get to the battle frontier without national dex!
also extended charon storyline after national dex.
it's more clear that palmer is (rival)'s father.

All stones and evolution items are available before elite four.

The newspaper thing where you have to show a pokemon to the guy now gives you a HEART SCALE along with pokeball. yay!

Other trainers use items more frequently, which adds a nice touch to the game.

The "hidden" cave under bike path is now accessible once you get the bike (in other words, it's always open; you can get earthquake and gible right after eterna city!)

hehehehe. Absol is available before elite four. :D

Also, use the dowsing machine a lot in mt coronet. rare candies and max revives to be found. :D

I also love how there are so many more pokemon defined as "cute" enough to go into the park in hearthome.

So in the battle castle whenever you win a battle Catlin says:

So many things...

1) Expanded Sinnoh Dex, fixing Fire/Electric problem.
2) Graphics.
3) Backsprite animations improved greatly.
4) Awesome new sprites.
5) Awesome catalysm scene.
4) Amped up Elite-four.
5) Return of Battle Frontier.

Don't care too much about the Regis and Rotom.
Hate the fact Barry beats Red's record of Highest-level NPC Owned Pokemon.

You can also find magmarizer/electrizer in an item ball instead of finding it on pokemon. Now i'll finally be able to have a non-pbr magmortar without catching loads of magby.

There is one thing I don't like about platinum, About all of my EV training spots have been filled with other pokes and some of the best trainers (like the cowgirl with 5 bidoofs) have been changed ;_;

I have to say, I love the Rotom stuff the best.
And the expanded sinnohdex (they need to put in Dragonite and Breloom, though).
Regis appearing
You can also rebattle pokemon if you knock them out (pixies, Cresselia, birdies, Giratina, Regigigas (not the other 3, though)).

Syncronizable Darkrai, Shaymin, Arceus (the items ae ng be handed out).

For me, lots of stuff.
- New revamped HP bars
- Pokemon animations, similar to Emerald
- New form of Giratina

Loads more.

I haven't yet played the game, but really want to.

the one thing i know about the platinum that i like is the fact that the boy trainer has even better clothing!
i mean in DP he had these tight little sleeves and now he has this awesome coat and whatnot.

though i think that this was one of those games that took a step forward insteda of a couple back y'know.

I'm going to say the new look of the Poketch, it is really nice, and the new sprites are cool too.
