@Octane How was I supposed to know an existing discussion thread for a Virtual Console game was not made on the Virtual Console board? I checked the Virtual Console board for threads on the Virtual Console game but saw none so made the thread.

Isn't the whole point of having a Virtual Console board so that people can find threads discussing Virtual Console games on it?

@Bass_X0 Well, there's a search function. Am I the only one who doesn't use the sub-forums? Anyway, I shall move the thread to 3DS VC.

Hey guys, the release next month will be the first time for me to play those two games. I watched the anime but never played any Pokémon game after Red an Blue.

Would be nice to know if there is anything I should do from the start on to not miss anything or locking me out?

@zyn Not really. It's pretty straight forward, especially if you still remember Red and Blue. There are a few new additions, like two new types, Dark and Steel, new Pokemon, new moves, etc. Some minor things like breeding Pokemon, but most of that gets explained as you play, or isn't important for beating the game.

Ah ok sounds good. I don't remember Red an Blue anymore so yeah I think it will be a new experience for me.

But when I get my 3DS with Samus Returns in September I will also pick up Red, Blue and Yellow. Maybe I start with them first.

Will they release Ruby and Sapphire on VC after these?

@Don We would need to see GBA games happen first (Like how SNES games revived the 3DS VC for awhile), which could happen since the RBY downloads made tons of sales and you'd have Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Fire Red, Leaf Green, Pinball RS and Mystery Dungeon Red to makes tons off of, but I guess it depends on how much longer Nintendo want the 3DS brand to go on for

My brother was super nice and gifted me a prepaid card to predownload Silver.

I had no idea these included a free theme so that was a doubly nice surprise!

Meowph, that's right!

I don't suppose there's any word about the Mystery Gift/My Room feature being emulated in these rereleases is there? It was an omission from HGSS that let me down as I remember using the feature till I got every decoration for the bedroom and enjoyed using it. My one concern is it needed the infer red on GBC to use (Which 3DS has, but I dunno if Nintendo ever used it for anything.) so I am curious if they went out their way to implement it or not...

I don't know if they'll add the infrared thingy, they could, but I dunno.

But at least you can still get decorations from your mom even without using infrared.

Meowph, that's right!

@Meowpheel As far as I recall, the mother's selection of decorations were pretty limited, and not every single one. The large Snorlax doll being one of them.

I mean if they do it via local Wi-Fi between 2 3DS's, I suppose it would not be too hard to send a signal to generate a random item selection for each game. They did go out their way to ensure the Pikachu Surfing minigame could be played on Yellow so who knows, maybe they will put it in. Sure would confuse younger gamers with a game option that doesnt work at all.....

Already preordered Silver, and probably will use my old 3DS system to get Gold and trade between them.

Second gen has always been my favorite.

Very excited especially with the Celebi announcement now if i could just get a Mew this time around i think the last one i missed by 6 months sold my 3DS system and games for the 2nd time lol and that will be the last time because this 3DS is staying until it stops working.

I never saw anything announced about it, but apparently you also get a free theme for purchasing Gold or Silver on VC. I purchased silver and this is the theme I received.

Yeah they didn't really announce it or anything.

It's funny how these games are such a good value compared to RBY in my country. Haha. I don't know when, but at some point Nintendo decided to double the price of the first generation games. GS are a little cheaper, better, and come with a theme and a mythical Pokemon.

@Ecto-1 did you get that one? What kind of music plays with it?

I'm prolly gonna get the Silver theme. Well, if My Nintendo actually Updates for me. The one time you want a reward it's not showing up. Because **** you, Tsurii XD

What a beautiful signature.

Twitter, not like there's anything interesting on there

Meowpheel

The two themes you get from buying the games play the GS title screen theme.

I like how Lugia has the Rainbow "Wing" in the background while Ho-Oh has the Silver "Wing". Though It may get confusing if you'd spect Lugia to have golden swirl to go with Ho-oh's silver swirl.

@Tsurii

Yeah, like @Meowpheel said, it is the Title screen theme (as I recall). They aren't My Nintendo Rewards. When you buy one of the games from the eshop, it will give you a screen after the download finishes with a code for Celebii, and just below that is the code for the theme. You just have to enter that code into the theme shop on the 3DS home screen.
