I haven't played a Pokemon game since Generation II's Silver... yeah. I've decided that I will play the remakes of Generation I and II, and then play through the games that I haven't played.
So these are the versions I'm thinking about playing:
Generation I (Remake) - FireRed Generation II (Remake) - HeartGold Generation III - Emerald Generation IV - Platinum Generation V - Black and Black 2
I'm choosing Emerald and Platinum because I'm under the impression that they are the most "complete" versions of their respective generations, like Yellow and Crystal were for Gen. 1 and Gen. II. By the way, are FireRed and HeartGold more faithful to Red/Blue and Gold/Silver than Yellow and Crystal? Also, are there any significant reasons to play LeafGreen and SoulSilver instead of FireRed and HeartGold?
If you have any objections to my list, please tell me. Frankly, you guys know this series better than I do.
