I reckon Pearl is losing out on a lot of things comparing the games.


-Diamond's Dex entries for Azelf, Mespirit and Uxie have 'The Being of ___', whereas Pearl has a random entry about what it does.

-Dialga is far better than Palkia in many ways including type resistances, signature move power, height and weight.


Is Pearl the duff game?

PEARL IS NOWHERE NEAR WORSE THAN DIAMOND!!!
A quick review of my Dialga vs Palkia battle:
Palkia uses Spacial rend; critical hit! Dialga fainted.
Also hers Azelf's pokedex data:
Pearl: It is thought that Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf all came from the same egg.
Diamond: Known as "The Being of Willpower." It sleeps at the bottom of a lake to keep the world in balance.

Pearl wins.

If I bought Pokemon games according to Dex entries, I'd never have played one.

Dialga's move is a "Hypa Beem!" move, meaning that it needs recharging after use. Thus, it is strategical suicide (the only useful Hypa Beem move is SolarBeam, and only when used in conjunction with Sunny Day). Yes, Dialga has more type resistances. In fact, I prefer Dialga, as I think it looks much better (but Palkia's signature move, as I previously stated, is more useful). I don't think that Pearl misses out, and I think that your reasons aren't very good (no offense).

And Dialga will obviously have a greater weight, it's made of frickin' steel. Who the hell cares about height and weight anyways? It has no implications in battle (don't talk to me about moves based on weight, they're crap).

I think Diamond is better because it has better exclusive Pokemon. I wanted Diamond solely for Tyranitar.

I have Pearl and my boyfriend has Diamond. Now I'm wishing I had Diamond. Mr. Mime is my favorite Pokémon, and it shows up in the wild on Diamond. Also, it has Stunky and it's too cute. :3

I agree... I bought Diamond because of my temporary obsession with Mr. Mime and because I thought Dialga looked much better than Palkia.

Pearl pwns Diamond
Nobody likes Pearl because apparantly, it looks girly..SUCK IT UP!
And for some reason, Dialga Looks cooler then Palkia, uhm, no, Palkia looks cooler, and plus, it doesnt matter on weight/height/looks, its the power, defence and moves it has and how you use them.

THANK YOU!!!!!

That's the same message I've been trying to get across to some of these people all along!

Either one of them is great in battle. Looks are a matter of opinion, and ground can still hurt Dialga 2x as dragon can hurt Palkia 2x. There's no missing out, the way I see it.

I say there's no missing out because there's transfering pokemon from past games, so those exclusives are almost pointless.

I mean, it's not like there is something SOOO strong that was only programed into the diamond version of the game.

It all depends on their attacks to see who's powerful.
But still I think DIALGA RULES.

I went for Pearl for Misdreavus, Houndour and Glameow. Also, mecha-Groudon.. I mean, Palkia is pretty cool.

Also, a lot of my friends have turned out to be Diamond-type people so its nice to be a Pearl person :D

I also went for Pearl for Mismagius (part of my main team). And both games are equal... Dialga and Palkia's stats are basically the same, it's just that Dialga has better Attack and Defense, whereas Palkia has better Special Attack and Special Defense.

True, it's all a matter of opinion though. We all have different tastes. We'll never all agree on one version to be better than the other; there is no correct answer to which is better.

Palkia looks cool to me, I just prefer Dialga. To be honest, I don't even like any legendaries that much, so I'd pick versions based on other things such as version-excusive Pokemon and etc.

I agree, I'd rather have Stunky than Glameow (Purugly is the ugliest thing in existance, besides Gallade), Mr. Mime, Tyranitar (I hate Salamence -_-), etc. etc. But what makes the games total equals is online trading. If I want a Mr. Mime instead of a crappy Sudowoodo, I'll ask someone online to give me one. I don't know how the hell someone can say "lol diamond iz bettur tahn pearl" because IT DOESN'T MATTER!

And if you can't tell, I have Pearl. Why did I get Pearl? I like Pearls more than Diamonds. :) Oh, and Pearl seems kind of feminine and girly...:p

Oh and for the record, both Dialga and Palkia are total wastes of memory, much like Gallade and Purugly. The day I got Palkia was the day I traded it on GTS for a Piplup.

I didnt know there was a memory limit for Pokemon cartridges...

Matter of Opinion. I got Pearl simply because I like Pearl's better then Diamond's and I have a strange fascination with Water pokemon. As for Pearl being girlier then Diamond...I just remembered the thought "Diamond's are a girl's best friends." while Pearl's are found in the sea by sailors, navy-men, and divers.

...and because of GTS it all evens out anyway. All games are kinda equal...unless they've made exclusive pokemon for one version that wasnt compatible with tthe other. Palkia>Dialga anyday.

I hope that was sarcasm.

So, yeah. You're not missing out no matter what version you have, as long as you can get some compatible wifi radiating around somewhere.

And yes, the legendaries are wastes of memory, because they're only for show, can't use them anywhere else besides your own game.

And yes, some pokemon are ugly, but they have good stats, which is the only thing keeping Probopass in my party. It has some awesome tankage there.

Eh, I got Pearl because I figured more people would get Diamond. They're both "girly" so it doesn't really matter. I'm sure they'll both get shortchanged when the special edition third-version comes out anyway, if it's in the works.

I have Pearl and sis has Diamond, so I don't really care.

Glameow and Purugly are cuuuuute. It should have been named Purcutie. And I do think that Dialga > Palkia, but meh, I'm not going to use either ingame or on wifi.

And really who cares about those three flying kitties. :(

In my opinion it honestly doesn't matter which of the versions you have - they're both equal from my perspective. The reason I chose Diamond is because it has simple access to Scyther/Larvitar without any trading required (I don't have Wi-Fi nor can I be bothered to obtain a Scyther on FR).

I suppose the people who chose Diamond over Pearl just because Pearl is defined as "girly" are just immature.
