    I started playing LeafGreen. Doing some things I never did before. Picked Charmander (picked Bulbasaur in Blue and FireRed, Squirtle in Red). Got a Mankey early to beat Brock and I'm using Spearow instead of Pidgey for my early Flyer. But I also caught a Caterpie, evolved it to Butterfree and it's been a lifesaver against early Poison types like Koffing, Ekans, Grimer, and Zubat you find against NPCs. I wish it could learn a Bug move early to take out Misty's Starmie.

    I recently started playing LeafGreen again too, and picked Squirtle since I normally go with Charmander since I love using Charizard later in the game. If you need help dealing with Misty's pokemon, try catching a Pikachu in the Viridian Forest.

    Tried to buy Professor Layton, but it was completely sold out at all Best Buy locations near me. I wanted it so bad too!

    Hey guys, quick question. I already own Pokemon Heart Gold ; is it worth it to also have Pokemon Soul Silver? Are there any incentives besides the exclusive Pokemon to each version?

    As far as I know it's just the exclusives that separate them.

    I really wish there were a way to trade between versions without having 2 ****ing DS's. These things have WiFi. By now, we should be able to use that to transfer our pokemon.

    The wild pokemon levels needed to be modified in HGSS imo. I'm going to be grinding for a while before I'm ready for Red.

    I never beat Red in SS. Can't fight an army of lv 40's to reach lv 80. It'd take forever.

    I never played HG or SS. I want to, because my Gold and Silver cartridges don't work anymore. Stupid internal clock battery.

    They're worth playing if you're a fan of the originals. Having a Pokemon follow you is pretty cool too.

    Wait, a Pokemon follows you? I didn't know that.

    Yep. The Pokemon that's at the top of your party follows you around.

    the first batch, with Ditto being a failed mew, the death of raticate, and a baby kangishkhan becoming cubone is pretty genius

    I definitely think that Venomoth and Butterfree got a spire mix-up they just stuck with.

    Definitely. I think the Kangaskhan/Cubone/Marowak is kind of a stretch but could be true. If they were made now, I definitely think they would be what the conspiracy says to a degree since we have held item and happiness evolutions now.

    By the way, in Black 2 and White 2, do Gen I-IV Pokemon appear before you beat the Elite 4? Or is it like B/W where it's just Gen V Pokemon until after that?

    I smell BS. I mean, Houndoomed? I think Nintendo would do better than to add 2 letters to create a new evolution of Houndoom. Some neat and long overdue typings like Grass/Dragon and (finally) Flying/Fighting!!
