I feel like the pokemon company is pushing too many games, and that's fun and all, but I think Diamond will be a dinosaur's game in two years. Do you agree?

Speak for yourself please. I don't think GBA games are ancient, they are still a part of my regular video game playing rotation. Right now Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heart Gold, and Soul Silver are all the current games in any country not named Japan. Right now they are anything but "obsolete." You still need them to get Zoroark in the fifth generation of games, and they have a special machine to transfer your Gen IV Pokemon over to the Gen V games, which gives them use and prevents them from becoming "obsolete."

Yeah...they aren't becoming obsolete per say but it just seems like the Gen is moving by fast to some & the games aren't favored by some so it gets boring faster but in no way are they becoming obsolete...

I still play all the Gen 4 games in my collection like they are the new games on the block, mainly I put most of my time into Soul Silver & Platinum as they are funner to play through for me though...

I love the 4th gen games and play them a lot. My favorite is Diamond, though Heart Gold is also an awesome game. I have played every generation and still have all of my games. I have replaced the battery in my Yellow twice and Red once, my Crystal and my Silver once and just re-purchased all of the gen 3 games. So I currently play Yellow, Silver, Emerald, Leaf Green, Diamond, Platinum, Heart Gold, and Soul Silver. As you can see, I still get down with a lot of the old games. I mainly play the "Old Yeller" when I am bored dealing with natures and just want to wreck things with my level 100 team. Obsolete means no longer in use, I would venture to say that DPP is still just as used as HG/SS and as the BW release is still months off I would say Gen 4 is still thriving more than dying out...

I would dare say by that logic that even half a year after BW comes out DPPt & especially HGSS will still be very much as not Obsolete as they are right now, just that BW will probably be played more often then the other games...

Obsolete? No. Slowly being pushed out of the limelight? Yes.

"Pushed out of the limelight".

I don't think the GBA games are 'ancient'. In fact my main game now is my FireRed.
And for some weird reason, in order to complete the Gen 4 dex, you must catch {regirock} , {regice} , and {registeel} in R/S/E, since those are the ONLY pokemon that are not avaiable in D/P/P or HG/SS. But in Platinum, if you have the event {regigigas} , you can unlock the trio. Other than that, no other way.
Also you must use all three of the Regis to catch {regigigas} in D/P/P.

Yep, I guess that would prevent those not-brand-new version from becoming unusable... you know what I mean.

True. Although the only places i can find the GBA games are at Gamestop and Ebay.
And i bet some people wouldn't want to spend $30 or more and have to go through another riguous adventure in a new region just to get 3 rare pokemon.

Then again, theres probably a bigger fraction of people who would do the hard work for 3 pokes.

EDIT
I just realized that they might be making R/S/E remakes. Not 100% sure but they could be. Thus making the GBA games unrequired for the DS games!
