    ... as revealed by Serebii. In short, the golden number is 445, or all past Pokemon BUT the starters and previous legendaries. That's just nifty ^^

    That said, there are still the three event Legendaries in D/P, as well as Manaphy (and therefore Fione as well) if you're a non-Japan resident or weren't lucky enough to get it via the Ranger event. There are also a number of Pokemon who only appear when a specific GBA cart is in the DS.

    So... if you don't have anyone to trade with and don't own any of the previous games, the number is a lot less. If you do have the previous games and WFC access, the amount of included Pokemon was never that big a deal (nor is being unable to get the starters and past legends). But still. There's something to be said for the games doing this considering that R/S excluded a hoard of the older Pokemon.
     
  2. Yep, that's pretty sweet ;D!
     
  3. Yah with wild, swarms, poketore, and putting in old pokemon games in the GBA slot I don't have to trade anything over anymore (yeah!^_^)
     
  4. Although, there seems to be a problem with this. Since all but non-ledendary and non-starter Pokemon from the previous games are available in Diamond/Pearl, there may not be any need for a DS remake of Red/Blue, Gold/Silver or Ruby/Sapphire. The reason why that there wasn't a GBA remake of Gold/Silver remake was because all of the missing Johto Pokemon were catchable in Colloseum. And that GBA remakes of Red/Blue were made so that the remaining Kanto Pokemon would be obtainable.
     
  5. I'm still waiting to hear where the problem is with this. I can't speak for anyone else, but although FR/LG were cool, I'd rather see an entirely new game rather than a remake. Particularly a remake of RS. Seriously, what?
