I was wondering what you guys think is better. I mean I would LOVE to have online 3D battles , but my pc boxes are full to bursting http://www.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk/forums/images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif and I could really do with that mew you can get from Hayley, but then again you get Magmortar & Electivire on PBR. So which do you think is better?
Also should I get one/both of them or are they not worth bothering about?

Honestly, if you're going to do any sort of collecting, go for Ranch but plan eventually for Platinum. The 1000-Pokemon storage is very useful, but being able to keep them on-hand is even more so.

I'd definitely choose Ranch over PBR, mostly because I have way too much fun with Ranch, and not enough of it with PBR. Plus, Mews are, overall, more useful than Electivire and Magmortar, as it has been rather hard to obtain a legit Mew in the past.

Plus, Ranch is much cheaper, and I continue to enjoy it, even after about 2 weeks of owning it.

Well, in your case, you'd probably want My Pokemon Ranch, since you can have online battles on DP.

And, the Mew and extra storage can come pretty handy. (And you can see your Pokemon in Mii form!)

depends. you should get them both as you can see full 3D in PBR, but the storage is convenient for My Pokémon Ranch. But if you can only get one, MPR is ideal.

Another thing to note is that, according to some people, Magmortar and Electivire are not available in the english game without a special event code. It's not something you can just play through and get. At the same time, know that the Mew Hayley gives you isn't necessarily all that good. at least not the one I got, and as I understood it all event pokemon are exactly the same.

My honest opinion? get both, if you can. PBR can get you a surfing volt tackling light ball carrying female pikachu, at the very least, and random onlines are fun. Ranch gets you a hayley phoney and Mew, plus there's the extra storage, and the other pokemon she trades you, which are pretty nice as well. (Every pokemon she trades you is holding something valuable, whether it's a rare berry, or an evolution stone.)

Just to clarify on this, yes you need a specific code for the Electivire & Magmortar, but that code is readily available on Serebii. Also, the idea that all the Pokemon of a certain event are the same is not quite accurate. While the nature, characteristic, and such can be set in stone at times, the IVs will still differ. In the case of Hayley's Mew, nothing about it is set in stone aside from the moveset, so it can vary a lot between owners.

Well then my Hayley's Mew sucked then, because it had a Hardy Nature. -.- It's IVs were also best suited for a defender than anything else.
