Been wondering this since I first made that random news update about Platinum's release... The game has been out for weeks but very few Platinum-related topics have popped up thus far. Is it just because people are still busy playing, most of our members haven't played it yet, or is it not as interesting as some people were expecting? Not trying to take a negative tone with this topic because my opinion on it is mostly all positive (even if I only JUST beat the updated Galactic Base in Eterna). Just asking the question: is Platinum everything you were hoping for, or does it fall short in certain areas? Myself, I didn't really need a reason to buy Platinum, so I'm just happy to have it. One thing I have noticed, though, is the selective environmental changes. While Twinleaf area had snow, nowhere else I've visited so far has really shown any climate changes. I guess that'll be played up more once I reach further areas, and maybe it's supposed to be like that... not sure XD As for the new WFC features I've tested so far, they all seem pretty neat. The upgraded GTS area will definitely see increased usage from me (I barely ever used it for D/P), and the new play area in the Pokemon Centers' basement seems fun. I haven't used it with friends yet (don't even have a single person registered on Platinum), but certainly hoping to at some point. Other than that, can't say much. I'll leave it at that for now.
