Why get both? I think it's more fun to have to trade with a friend to get a Pokemon you want. It's what was intended, anyways. Honestly, you shouldn't freak out too much about it. It's not like the game is as good as everyone was saying it was. Sure, it's got new stuff, but it's just like playing my Pokemon Crystal. Since I've beaten Crystal several times, this game is much more... boring than I thought it would be.
Well I just now found out that there are two methods of getting preorder things, and well my mom was the one who actually finshed preordering the games (even though it was my money) and she didn't note any of the information that we needed to keep.
So now I have to wait till she gets back home, so she can call the 800 number and see what is going on.
Man, I am so mad at her!
I mean, I asked her to leave the window open so I can check to see if there was any info that I needed to copy down, but then she turned off the computer.
Ever since June, I have been asking her if she made sure that the preordering was alright and set and she kept saying yes.
