I just picked up the Prima guide for Leaf / Fire and saw no mention of
Deoxys and it stated that Mew, Celebi and Lugia will not be available in the
US - kind of a disappointment.

I guess the Aurora ticket may give us Deoxys but I am wondering how and when
that will be distributed...any ideas?

More about : celebi lugia mew

When? No.

Lugia and Ho-oh ARE in the game, though, but also require a special island
ticket, like Deoxys. Quite strange, I know.

Mew will probably be available eventually, since it's the only Pokémon
unavailable to ANYONE in this wave of games.

Celebi really concerns me, though. The Japanese have already got theirs, so
they're not a concern. I'll be quite annoyed if we lose out simply because
the US Coli bonus disk had a Jirachi on it instead.

Will we be able to transfer Jirachi onto FR/LG directly?

Probably depends on how you go about doing it.

Whatever the case, you'll need the National Dex in FL. Once you have that,
you'll be able to transfer Jirachi from RS or Coli onto FL. I'm not certain
whether using the Coli bonus disk would work, though, since we didn't get a
bonus disk in the UK. We got it with Channel. Have I mentioned this enough
to make anyone hate me yet?

Oh that's right, you can't transfer any later generation pokemon until after
you beat the Elite Four.

A quick question then: Are FR/LG meant to be the new pokemon games, or are
they meant to supplement R/S? In other words, are we supposed to transfer
our pokemon from R/S to FR/LG, or the other way, or does it matter?

It probably doesn't matter. After you get the Ndex, I guess you can trade
to whichever game you personally like the look of. Anyone know anything
about Emerald?

If what I read is true though, traded pokes with native pokes mate quicker.
I don't think it matters for the egg, but even a little quicker is good,
right?

As for the legendaries, what about getting an imported Japanese version,
since they are all supposed to be compatable?

Is that coming to the US soon, or at all?

RS, FL and Coli are, as far as I'm concerned, one set of games, in the same
way that RBY and GSC were one set each. GSC needed RBY to have a complete
Dex, but RBY didn't need GSC, so they weren't co-dependent. FL needs RS and
Coli. RS needs FL and Coli. If you really want to complete Coli's
pseudoPokédex thing, you need FL and RS. Each of the five games is integral
to completing the Dex, since they contain at least one Pokémon not found in
any other.

In summary, it doesn't really matter where you trade to. I intend to
complete my Sapphire Dex regardless, but I also intend to complete my Leaf
Green Dex when I have it.

It's not even out in Japan yet. Why would it be coming to the US soon?

It'll make them scads of money if they release it here; I think that's
as satisfactory an answer to the question as you're going to get.
