#1dmx4940Posted 5/2/2013 11:23:54 AM
i was thinking of getting one of the ds pokemon games to get and wondered where to start? I havnt played one since red/blue on the gb. Do they still have the original pokemon in? Are the stories still quite similar?

I suggest starting with HeartGold or SoulSilver. They will have quite a few of the classic Pikemon you know compared to B/W/B2/W2.

X and Y come out this October too, but they are 3D now. If you want to get a 2D Pokemon, now is the time.

platinum is my favorite and an awesome experience.. but i just got black 2 to get back in the loop myself and is quite fun so far too.. so i recommend one of those

I would personally recommend Black & White 1. They don't have any older pokemon until the post-game, but definetly make up for it with the best pacing and soundtrack since the gameboy color days.

HG/SS are DS games. Fire Red and Leaf Green are GBA games. You can play Heart Gold and Soul Silver on your 3ds. I would recommend them because they are remakes of the second generation. If you want a game with the current wifi competitions and event pokes, then get Black 2 or White 2.

Pokemon Gold and Silver were Game Boy Color games, and HeartGold and SoulSilver are remakes of those on the DS. That's why HeartGold or SoulSilver would be closest to the experience you're looking for.

I personally prefer Gen IV over gen V, So i would recommend HG/SS or Pearl/Diamond/Platinum
