Default Getting Diamond (or Pearl)...

Alright, so I finally have a Nintendo DS, which I got a few days ago. I don't have any Nintendo DS games, which sucks seeing as the Health & Safety instruction manual says to always keep a DS game card in the DS slot to prevent dust from getting in.

So what's the quickest way to get Diamond (or Pearl)? I certainly don't have enough money, unless if I could randomly find $25 to add to my current $15.

So what's the quickest way to get Diamond (or Pearl)?

NO! NEVER DO THAT! They only give you like, a Dollar-five Dollars per game. Sell them on Half.com. You get much more money. Or go on Ebay, or Amazon! Some used copies, you can get for like, $15.

You can't trust Ebay, they're usually fake copies. I'd rather get a new copy.

No, you can buy things off ebay. You have to find a very reputable seller though. Or, just buy it somewhere Online. You get a lot better deals most of the time.
EDIT: And look, I found this on Amazon.com. I have bought many good things on amazon. Have never been ripped off. Check this out: a used copy, very good condition, 20$! http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...9863265&sr=8-1

Well...I've looked on Amazon, and the cheapest copy is $21...and shipping is an extra $3.99, so I still can't afford it. My older brother has so much money because he goes to work as much as he can...I wish I was 17...

Well, just do some chores around the house. It's not tough at all to earn $10.

For me it is very tough to actually earn $10, because before I finally got a DS, I was "working" for it, and at first I actually got real money, but then my parents decided that I was making money way too fast, so then they said that if I just work for a long time I could get a DS. I finally got a DS a few days ago, but my initial goal was to finally play D/P. So no, I can't make money.

EDIT: OMG, $20.00 Pearl version!?!? NO WAI!!! I need $5 bucks, now! Thanks for the link! I'm sure I can convince my parents if I work a little more...but the problem is that they think Pokemon is extremely immature all because of a stupid thing called, "Pikachu".

EDIT: Oh, and I want to also make sure its the US version, not the Japanese version.

It says if it is the Japanese version, trust me. And BTW, Pearl, in most repspects, is a little better than Diamond. Palkia helps much more in the E4.

Alright, I'm going to trust you on that. But how would I order from Ebay, seeing as I don't have a bank account or anything, so I would have to ask my parents, and then they might say no because of a stupid thing called, "Pikachu".

Well, you either need to send cash through the mail, (which is'nt the best option) or, use Paypal. But you know, there is another GREAT website called craigslist. You search for something in your area, and there might be a really good deal, that is in your town! You just email the person, and arrange where you want to meet and make the transaction. It's like an Online Classifieds ad.
Here: www.craigslist.com
