Its kinda related to the Virtual console forum, but its pretty dead so I decided to post here. hope its fine XD

I am personally really happy about that, even more than the announcment of pokemon ultra sun and moon. I grew on pokemon silver (it was my very first video game) and my soulsilver cartidge stopped working a while ago. I cant wait to play the original games without having to fear they will be damaged or something XD

that just made my day

Oh yeah.

I mean, I would be more excited if it wasn't because:

1)my copy of silver still works fine.
2)crystal is not included.
3)they doubled the price of the gen 1 games recently here, so that means these will be expensive for me.

But yeah day 1 download

Silver to my 3ds and gold to my 2ds (eventually).

I am excited about this. I love Gold/Silver and can't wait to play them again, plus my HeartGold is not working anymore.

Want: Mario Party Top 100, Atlus games, Psychic Spectres for the 3DS. For the Switch Kirby Star Allies, Yoshi and many others.

Finished the Alola Dex.
Now playing Stories, Crystal and Ultra Sun.

These statements pretty well summarize my situation. XD I also had Gold at one point, but gave it to my brother. I'd probably consider Crystal if that were included since the save on my cartridge conked out long ago.

I encourage anyone who hasn't played them to pick up at least one of the two! I consider these to be the best of the classic Pokemon games.

Kinda wished they were on Switch, should've saw this coming, though.

@Tsurii No Phanpy, no buy. No seriously, it always frustrated me how half of the Johto Pokemon weren't available until you beat the League, or were just very late encounters.

@Tsurii Indeed, add the fact that stones were quite elusive, and trade evolutions were always a pain in the arse, and it took me a good while to release what the new Pokemon actually were. I never completed the Pokedex in GSC. Otherwise good games, but the Pokemon distribution was rubbish.

@Tsurii The list is even longer, Remoraid and Qwilfish too, I believe they required you to get a phone number and get a call on a lucky day from a fisherman. Slugma was a Kanto encounter too. I'm glad the newer games aren't as tedious when it comes to this, but I do miss the lack of freedom and difficulty of the older games.

How likely will they release Ruby and Sapphire on the VC?

You can get dunsparce right before the first gym, it's just a bit rare.

At least Wobbuffet was a more common than Dunsparce.

And I just discovered Teddiursa can be found in the Dark Cave in Crystal too. So you can get Teddiursa and Phanpy before the first gym! I want to replay that game now.

@Tsurii Didn't know that either. Encounter rate is only 5%, so that could explain why I've never seen one in there before.

Crystal doesn't have Ampharos though... Can't we get an ultimate edition of every gen? One that does away with the stupid exclusives?

I still have my Heart Gold copy, so I'll pass.

Wait, seriously? There's no electric types in Johto outside of the mareep line?

@Tsurii Magmemite is on the Miltank route and there are Electrode in the Team Rocket base. You can also evolve an Eevee in a Jolteon if you manage to find a Thunder Stone. I've done plenty of mono-type runs in the older games, I know where to find them

@Tsurii That's true.

And I completely forgot about Chinchou / Lanturn, but they are kinda forgettable...

Octane

Eel

Yeah I was just remembering Chinchou. Can you catch it with the old/good rod?

@Meowpheel Good Rod for sure. You can't catch anything remotely interesting with the Old Rod.
