Pokemon <3's Hangul, Pearl and Diamond dated for Korea


pokemonkr.jpgThe first Korean-localized entry in the Pokemon RPG series (read not Dash or any other spin off) arrives on Valentine’s Day. This probably isn’t “news” because Pokemon Diamond and Pearl saturated most of the world, but starting on February 14 you should be able to collect Pokemon with three different character sets. Remember how weak English-named Pokemon were traded at a premium to Pokemon Trainers in Japan? Perhaps, a similar trend will happen in Korea. Gotta catch 'em in different languages too.


Update: I stand corrected, Pokemon Gold/Silver has an official Korean equivlent from Nintendo.
