It makes no sense; they should've just added a new character, like they did with Yellow, Emerald, and Crystal.

I think you're not a proper fan, or you ask for fun?
Berlitz is her last name as known as family name. And she didnt reveal her first name in the opening because there's no new third game for Diamond and Pearl so untill Platinum is out, Berlitz called Platinum now. But we often call her Platina because Platina is more girl name and from Japanese words, PURACHINA is the Japanese of Platinum so that's how her name is from... And it's stupid to create a new character. There's already Sinnoh Trio just Platina's name is hidden.

So is now Platina Berlitz? That sounds much more appropiate then dia or pea.

Yeah... This thread is stupid... How come a fan of Special wont know Berlitz this name is the last name...

Yeah, that is her last name. In the Japanese version, she is referred to by the title of the daughter of a wealthy family, and in the translations she is called Lady Berlitz.

Because the PokeSpecial fan might not have read it for a while. It's not their job to keep up with a comic. :P

I thought Dia and Pea was for the other two...what does that have to do with Berlitz?

He was saying that Platina sounds better than the nickname's Diamond and Pearl have (Diamond's being Dia, Pearl's being Pea)

I like Platina the way it is, the shorter "Plat" sounds too close to "flat".

Yes, but from my understanding of this, is that her name is most likely to be Platinum and everyone has given her the nickname of Platina because it sounds more feminine than Platinum does. So we wouldn't be making a nickname from Platina, as it is her nickname.

Not meaning to have a go at anyone, just making things clearer for myself.

Kinda. But basically, Platina is Japanese. Because "Purcahina" and Platina are closed. Platinum is officially Berlitz's name. But calling her Platina is more nicer. I hope the Chuang Yi won't translate her name into Platinum... Platina is more female-ish name ;)
