Hey I havent seen this thread yet so if there is one let me know and I'll take this one down


Which is better?

is ranch useless other than for storage?

Are the battles in revolution not all they could be?

Are they both worth it?

Is it better just to stick with dimand and Pearl?

(I need to know before I waste my money)

You should delete your other threads: Edit --> Delete Post

Also how is a storage system essentially worth US$ 10 comparable to Battle Frontier 1.5?

Honestly, if you don't have that many Pokemon, or don't want to watch them just run around on the Wii, Ranch isn't worth it.

If you're not into battles, PBR isn't worth it.

Ranch is like PokemonBox. It's just there for storage, but from what I understand you also have little mini games in there, but that's basically it. PBR gives you something to do, but it's just battling.

Personally, I wouldn't waste my money on them.

^ I'm 99.9% certain that you can move pokes from your games through Ranch, but I'm not so sure about PBR.

EDIT-S - Proven wrong. That's what I get for commenting on a game I don't have. XD

As in someone depositing a Pokémon from one DS game into the Wii game and then taking it out with another DS game?

In which case, it's impossible to do that through any means. Which is a shame.

I've had a bit of fun with Ranch and PBR, but I wouldn't say it's worth $60. If they had been one $50 game with a load more features (like the ones from Stadium, more character customization, the ability to transfer Pokémon from game to game as mentioned, etc.) then it would be another story.

Nintendo has updated Ranch, so it is compatible with Platinum.

I don't like either of them too much. PBR needs a hell of a lot of reworking. The biggest thing that I had problems with was that you couldn't do doubles with someone. There also wasn't anything really interesting to do with PBR other than fix some shit that should have been fixed with Pearl and Diamond. With Ranch, the lack of activities is rather disappointing. I know it's suppose to be the box for this gen but I remember the other boxes doing much more. I feel like neither one pushed the envelope and could have been so much more. I just hope that the next gen doesn't make the same mistakes.

Neither.

I never liked the Stadium games, I got bored pretty quickly. I miss being able to level up, a story, catching new poke's. I really hope they make a Pokemon RPG for the Wii, it doesn't have to be another Shadow story, though I'm a part of the minority that'd love that. The Wii really needs more RPGS (can only think of Dragon Quest and Tales of Symphonia).

Also Battle Revolution newbie question, I imported my entire collection from Diamond which is fine as it contains two teams already and most of my DP collection. I couldn't add the ones from Pearl into it, do I really have to create a new save file or something to get them in the game? I was hoping to mix all my Pokemon from DP to one save. I didnt even give myself a chance to get bored of this game, I did one battle with the AI and turned it off :S

I like PBR because it's the only way I can battle over Wi-Fi since my Wi-Fi comes up with an error when I try to access the Wi-Fi battle or trade on Pearl (though for some reason the GTS and Battle Tower work fine). I like Ranch because of the special Pokémon that you can get (specifically Mew with Synthesis and Hypnosis).

There's a difference between gettign an error code when trying to connect, and not finding anyone because you have no one registered. Surprisingly, it does seem easier to connect with the Wii.
