As for today I will toss a coin to decide. When I have more info I will probably decide. I like both Dialga and Palkia. But I played Diamond instead of Pearl so I hold it dear.

Pearl. It's the one I chose back then, and I plan to use either Misdreavus or Mismagius.

Anyone else keep calling it shining diamond or is it just me?
Anyway I had pearl back in the day, but I'm picking brilliant diamond this time. It was the only version of sinnoh I never played (pearl and platinum but never diamond)

Well, in most cases. FRLG changed things so you could get Meowth and Mankey in the same game, also making Mankey an early game mon.
True. And the English Gold and Silver switched up Teddiursa and Phanpy while HeartGold and SoulSilver retained the Japanese exclusives. But the version exclusives are still highly likely to remain the same with some minor differences. Faithful remakes could have the same exclusives.

I played Diamond to death. Even had there of the four trainer card stars. I just needed the Battle Tower one. So I'm going with Brilliant Diamond.
