    pokemon ds black

    I couldn’t help myself. I had to buy this. Hehe.

    I’ve been a big Pokemon fan since who knows when and I’ve always wanted to own one of those exclusive Pokemon consoles or handhelds. Usually, the Pokemon exclusive ones can’t be purchased directly from the store. The rights to buy are usually raffled off. Making the item harder to get. They did that for the yellow Pikachu Japan DS which I’ve always dreamed of.

    Recently though, the US released their own exclusive version and it can easily be purchased in stores at a very reasonable price! XD This version has a Dialga and Palkia print. Printed in gold and silver, the graceful beasts stands out most sharply against the black backdrop on the DS. Aside from the limited design, the package also comes with a matching case, a DVD of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Darkness and a collectible mini poster.

    I’m so happy!!! XD
