Got my copy of Pearl yesterday. It's OK so far. I just wish they'd give me the goddamn mother[censored]in' bike which I _know_ is coming from the GODDAMN START COS THE RUNNING SHOES ARE SO [censored]ING SLOW AUGH.
Also, the new Pokémon are so laughably crap. I chose Turtwig (sp?) or whatever its name was.
If you're talking about Darkrai, Shaymin and Arceus, then you must already have Mew and Celebi - and the chances are those are both haxxed anyway considering the extreme limited availability of both, even in America.
In which case, then it's barely worth caring about the ethics of it.
I have a Darkrai and Shaymin, incidentally, if you wanted to borrow them for Dex purposes. No Arceus though...
Bonus news is though that there's a possibility that the 3 Pokemon may be available using the WiFi Mystery Gift but there's absolutely no way of telling for at least another year when the 10th movie comes out in English.
