Should I buy heart gold or diamond?

I played diamond up until the mine town I think. How close was i to beating it? I would have to start over

I have never played heart gold but I played the version on gameboy color already

Definitely heartgold. It has the most content and is overall exciting and you wont get bored since there are 16 gyms and more!

It depends on the type of pokemon you want, altough if that's the case then I would het HG, but bear in mind that if you buy Heart Gold and not Diamond, you won't be able to get the following pokemon :
Azelf
Mesprit
Uxie
Cresselia
Heatran
Dialga / Giratina
In Heart Gold there is an event through which you can get either Giratina / Dialga / Palkia*

*Palkia is not obtainable in Diamond.

I've had more fun playing HG than playing Diamond. You will probably miss out on some Sinnoh/Hoenn pokemon, but HG got enough content to keep you entertained for a long while!

Diamond. Both of the regions are watered down and not very unique, so 16 gyms is pretty meaningless.

The plural form of a word can be made by adding "s" at the end of a word. No useless apostrophes needed!

Diamond seems very slow in everything plus sinnoh pokes are meh. IMO though, whatever is fun to you.

If you choose not to buy heart gold, at the very least buy platinum instead of diamond. Platinum is basically diamond but better.

I would get HG/SS.

Much more content, better Pokemon.

people who say this never really think that fast pacing from gym to gym can actually be a better thing.

while the low levels of wild pokes in HGSS suck, its defendanley the better game. consider platinum before diamond.

HeartGold, imo. But between HeartGold and Platinum, I would get Platinum.
