Will the US ever get something like this? This is unfair to everyone else. They should at least let you subscribe for it overseas.

First of all, the world is not fair. And besides, there's stuff and events here in the US that the UK doesn't have, and likewise.

There is no subscription plans for the magazine, not even for UK residents. You might be able to buy it at places that specialize in importing magazines from other countries.

Oh, please...you do realize that they have to wait months for video games to be released over there after they're released in the US, right? They should have some spoils.

Exactly my thoughts Zam. Not only did we have to wait a month before getting FRLG here (Which I unfortunately havent gotten yet, due to spending my money during the long wait for them to be released), but we'll never get Deoxys either, unless Nintendo add it into a console game (Like how they added Jirachi to Pokemon Channel).

UK doesnt have it's own Pokemon Center, or any special events to help get the rare Pokemon (Not to mention no e-Reader, so we cant get the Eon, Mystery, or Aurora Tickets). You should count yourself lucky.

Thing is, i'm tempted to buy the Magazine with what little money I have, yet I still want to save up again for FireRed...

Well, I may go and buy it tomorrow; I could always scan any important pages for those who want them.

Book stores like Barnes & Nobles, walden books and Borders usually carry import magazines, I often see several UK video game magazines(and still have all the free gifts and what not). So i bet you will be ble to find it there. The price would probably be around 11$
