The release date isn't march 22. It's march 23.
Also, Japanese peope can preorder the game starting today until march 15, get free shipping and will have the game delivered on the official release day.
Oh and people will be able to try out pokemon ranger in some stores from february 11 to february 26. And starting february 25 there will be a downloadable demo at Nintendo's "Touch! Try! DS" service.

I wonder why nobody has yet written an article at BulbaNews.

EDIT: JKaizer or whoever I hate you. Now you suddenly add the stuff I posted here to your news post.

EDIT2: Now I'm the idiot again who has to write the Bulbanews article even though my english isn't very good. -____-

It's really sad that nobody else felt the need to write an article about this. But that seems to get normal here at Bulbanews. Just as translations of coro coro scans are always promised and then never posted. :(

There probably wasn't any other members of the Bulbanews staff online during that hour. I didn't know about it because I was working on the Bulbapedia article for Journey to the Starting Line.

We do need to make sure we are ready when news of that new Pokémon comes through next week, though.
