I'm just curious, but how long do you think it will take for a ROM to get out from date of release?

Actually, the Japanese ROM will most likely start being traded on the internet _before_ the official Japanese release date. Likewise with the U.S. version.

FYI, Game Boy ROM extractors currently only cost about $150 U.S. dollars. See http://www.eagb.net/advance/hr13.html All it takes is one person with that device to get their hands on a cartridge--which people often manage to do before the official release date--and extract it.

Translating the Japanese ROM to an unofficial English version might take a bit longer--probably a few weeks.

Aren't they going to release both the US and Japanese ones at the same time this time? There is no way I'm going to buy both a GBA and Pokemon Advance now, even if I'd get to play it while I'm off the comp. I'll get a DOS emulator or something for my other comp.

Hmm, well yeah I am familiar with IGN saying "Nintendo has mentioned that it wants to release Pokemon for the Game Boy Advance this year in both Japan and the United States, but no official release date has been set for either territory." I don't quite believe that they would actually get both versions out even near the same time though.

I'm not sure if any Game Boy Advance emulators run under DOS. I know that Visual Boy Advance and Boycott Advance certainly do not. Though I'm guessing your other computer runs Windows so that should be fine for you.

The game will almost definatly be leaked on the internet before the actual game itself is sold, in both Japan and America. It's because Nintendo will probably give some of their employees the games early, plus demos in stores, like Wal-Mart and stuff, it just takes one person who can get their hands on it for a few mins and kaboom the whole world's got it...

Get me a ROM the first second possible (this means I want you people looking around for it whenever you think someone might have a ROM out) and I will give you guys everything you want to know out of it, including a nice little section on hacking it and the actual data in the ROM.
