Apparently the European version of Platinum doesn't allow you to play in the Game Corner...
Here's an article: Game Corner in European Platinum removed

The question is... why do you think they removed it ?

Because it was useless? I don't know. I was never really into the game corner
Who actually plays there?

Some sort of weird gambling law in some European countries? I really don't know.

I just buy the coins, i don't bother playing so.... yeah.

If you read on, Dr. Oak seems to think that this is censoring done by Nintendo of Europe. No further explanation is needed, really.

Out of curiosity, is there a way to get the Explosion TM for Europeans?

The Game Corner is still there, it's just that you cannot play he machines. When you click a machine, it merely says 'This is a Game Machine' and that's it. So farsa know there are many script changes an occasionally you can find free coins by clicking the game machines. I have the European version and that's what I remember. I would check but I'm in the middle of a Battle Arcade Challenge:)

You can just buy it like regular TMs.

This is strange, for one thing if it is some sort of gambling censoring then why are you allowed to buy scratch cards wit BPs? surely thats gambling too?

I don't care about the removal. It's not really fun, it's just repetitive. I only buy the coins to purchase things such as Thunderbolt and Ice Beam TMs.

*has just confirmed with his own version of Platinum brought in England*

Our governments suck. I don't want to go on a rant, but we can have games where we kill people. But gambling is not alright?

Anyway that aside, you don't need the machines in Platinum you get rich just by battling trainers. My favourite is the old lady and gentleman near the pokemon mansion (With gold coin or whatever, you get 24000 gold).

But still, a bad show.

Well you have to remember that Pokémon is aimed at a younger audience even though I'm sure a large market for it are older and the children that do buy it probably play the violent games anyway.

it kinda sucks that u can't play games at the game corner. but pokexa is right, maybe they thought many people wouldn't play at the game corner that often

Yeah I know but Diamond and Pearl had it. Why did they suddenly just remove it from Platinum? That's just odd.
