Cyndaquil, Totodile, or Chikorita?
Nintendo announced this weekend that the DS remakes of the beloved second generation of Pokemon titles, HeartGold and SoulSilver, will be hitting Europe and North America sometime in the Spring 2010 range.
The massively popular games, originally Game Boy Color releases, introduced 100 new monsters, a day/night system tied to the real world and Pokemon breeding. These new releases will not only beef up the graphics and sound but will also add touch elements and promises a few more hidden surprises.
Welcome back, Johto.
Somewhere, Bahamut ZERO is loving this.
cant wait gold and silver versions were great back in the day
I never got the chance to play these so this will be a definite must-buy for me!
Any info on that little pack-in device Japan got with these? That thing where your Pokemon gains experience with each step you take? Will we be getting it?
@Roopa132: Everyone remotely familiar with Pokémon knows that.
Im actually happy it doesnt come this year...TOO MUCH TO BUY!!!
@Adam: I don't know yet.
Awesome! This is a day-one purchase for me! Heart Gold and Soul Silver might be the best Pokemon games ever!
Ack, you beat me to the punch Jon, I just did my report on it, lol. Back to the drawing board
I can't wait for these personally, but Heart Gold and Soul Silver are the silliest Pokemon names I've ever heard!
When (if) I get one of these, Cyndaquil is the obvious pick. Typhlosion kept me going through Gold until I got my Houndoom, and it'll do the same in HeartGold.
@Adam: No word yet, but considering it can level up your Pokemon on the fly and you can actually catch more while you walk, I'd bet it will be bundled.
Also the game itself uploads new areas for your Pokemon to walk in when certain things happen, so yeah, I would bet money on it!
@SuperSonic1990: They certainly have the potential, especially considering that a lot of people say that GSC was the peak of the Pokémon series. Now we can get it without those battery and save data problems, and enhanced graphics and sound to boot! They'd have to TRY to mess up HGSS if they didn't want them to be the best Pokémon games ever.
I'm going with Cyndaquil. Why you ask? Because that's what I am in Mystery Dongeon.
Why do we always seem to get games a year later than Japan?
Awesome! I should keep myself from playing the old ones, so that I'd be fresh next spring. That's kinda sick.
I must get this!
CYNDAQUIL GO! FUHLAME WHEELLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sweet, this'll make a great birthday present, just like Platinum did, as long as nothing more desirible comes out. It'll be good to go back to Johto; it's the region I spent the least amount of time in.
Also, I'll be going with Cyndaquil. Fire starter FTW!
Totodile for me! I always hated fire types, not that water Pokemon are much better, I always end up with my trusty dark pokemon
Not sure if I'll get this - I have the means to catch every single Pokemon via other games anyway, and I have the original.
I'll probably pick it up anyway though. I'm a Pokemaniac.
I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!!
This looks awesome i"ll defiantly get totodile he was my start on Gold and eventually made him a lvl 100 feraligator
Its confirmed theres a battle tower somewhere forgot maybe west from the ghost gym leader town. Also confirmed Rayquaza, groudon, and kyogre are catchable. Last Im going to say is you can go to kanto like on the originals. Don't believe me then go to Serebii.net
i will get cyndiquil because in the original silver version my lvl 99 typhlosion pwned. i can't say the same for my next best pokemon...lvl 11 onyx! . im going to get silver most likely because silver is better then gold and heartgold sounds dumber
oh is it true that you can choose pokemon to walk behind you like pickachu did in pokemon yellow?
Seems like a lot of people like Cyndaquil haha. I usually end up ditching my starter Pokemon, so it won't matter which I choose too much.
@Ezekiel: That's the best news ever- Kanto will be available! I'm officially sold.
Chikorita because everybody else is choosing Cyndaquil and Totodile.
Do you think it'll have the any sort of import method, like diamond and pearl?
I have Platinum, I'm good, lol.
I pick Totodile and name it Irwine
it'll probably use firered/leafgreen with the time machine and have other regions avalible when beaten
may even use r/s/e with time machine as well
for the first time in about 5 years i am excited for a pokemon game
but i am torn who to pick i always get grass starters i love grass type and meganium being a dinosaur flower is to cool but i love alligators so i want totodile
Knew about this for awhile now lol.
this is 1 of my fav games so when it come out i am getting it asap
Yay, another Pokemon game. I can hardly wait.
Oh, whoop de doo. We have minimal information that we probably could have guessed. Thank you so much, NL.
@Archy: We get games later because they take time to translate.
@chunky_droid: What type did you use before dark was invented?
@everyone: How do you use the smiley icons?
Silver has always been my favorite so it looks like I'll have to get this one.
Am I the only one that would choose Treecko?
I love this news. This series introduced so many new aspects into the game, I think I would still be playing the originals had they never been screwed up. This is defidently a buy. Now all I need is a Drill Dozer remake (or sequel).
^No. Serebii sucks. Bulbagarden is better and you know it.
These remakes are a dream come true. Should be much better than FRLG.
Sweet! The battery in my Pokemon Gold game has died a sad death...
I'm going with Cyndaquil again.
Totodile FTW! Big, powerful alligator with a decent moveset, though doesn't compare to Swampert/Empoleon.
I truly love all of the starters in the Pokemon games, but Cyndaquil, then eventually Typhlosion were the worst D:
Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard = awesome flying/fire.
Torchic/Conbusken/Blaziken = awesome fighting/fire.
Chimchar/Monferno/Infernape = also awesome fighting/fire.
Anyhoo, I'm on the fence about Gold/Silver remake...I have Gold and Crystal. Then again, easy access to some Legendaries is nifty Hopefully Celebi is obtainable without event assistance! And hopefully they add a few more of the rarer Legendaries (Jirachi, Deoxys).
@Irken004 - "Am I the only one who would that would choose Treecko?"
Yes...especially since Treecko was a starter in the Generation III games (Saphhire/Ruby/Emerald) and not in the Generation II games (Gold/Silver/Crystal)
