Honestly, HGSS was my favorite. (Gasp, real reasons inside?)

#1Whats_Up4444Posted 2/4/2013 8:55:28 PM
16 badges
Two regions
Battle a MC.
Two games min. for a starter from each region.
Best gym leaders+Elite 4. (Lance is good as champion but a better E4. Blue was better storywise, design, Steven was cool. Cynthia was the strongest, Iris was cute and awesome. Alder was climatic. LOL EMERALD SO MANY LOLZ ON THIS GAME'S CHAMPION)

Being able to see how the characters from Kanto look today. (Brock, Misty and Sabrina being my favorites)

Best battle mechanics due to so many additions from other games. (Same for Gen 4. Only thing it did right)

All my favorites obtainable in some way. (Trading/Migrating isn't counted)

Pokemon following you.

One of the only sequels. (Havent played BW(2))

Story is meh. But kinda cool since it is a sequal.( BW(2)'s story? OH MY GOD SO GOOOD! I need to play gen 5)

I disagree on the quality of HG/SS, but I can understand your feelings.

I've been replaying Heart Gold lately, and I almost agree to be honest. I didn't even really like Gen II, but the remakes were a massive improvement.

I still prefer Black/White though. Gen V's gameplay mechanics were superior, and the story deconstructed several of the main concepts of Pokemon.

Please, after I play BW(2) I'll throw every other game in the garbage.

I don't like the gym leaders appearances though.

Except a few.

Might wanna lower your expectations for B2/W2's story. I'm getting the impression you have some.

Great games though.

I love HG/SS too. Just plain fun to play.

I like Monster Rancher.

I spoiled a lot of BW/BW2's story already.

Loved it.

I also like the whole "good and evil isn't always black and white", no pun intended.

I like it, but can never love it for the lack of fixing the main problems with the game.

I wish Blastoise was my dad. He wouldn't beat my mom like what her boyfriend, Johnny does. If Blastoise was my dad things would be different around here.

Sort of like that. It's a remake of Gold/Silver so the second region is actually the Kanto region (though unlike G/S/C, this Kanto has been nearly fully restored).

Yeah, I think HG/SS is my overall favorite too. The graphics, mechanics and music were all superb.
