Loving It?Added 23 Nov 2013, ID #18053
Honestly, I love all of the Pokémon games. I have no problems with them. I like them the same, and for 21 yrs of my life, I have been slowly adding to my collection. And will continue to do so. Go GameFreaks, and Nintendo for making a highly successful and addicting RPG Franchise!

The game is better, with new and improved graphics, no more stupid Contests, a better storyline, and stronger story elements, rendering every game pretty much pointless, plus new advantages, like traveling to all four regions, walking with your Pokemon, and talking to them.

Crossy's ImpressionsAdded 18 Sep 2009, ID #12469
I was just eleven years old when I saw a commercial in which a young boy stood before a replica of the Parthenon with a shiny Pok Ball in hand, standing ready to domesticate a slew of hitherto unknown and tantalisingly fanciful creatures. Compared to the Red, Blue, and Yellow versions (and Pokmon Stadium), which brought forth the 151 creatures that most of my friends from school at the time would only remember before they pursued other interests, this game promised mechanics that, but for the fact that some Pokmon had to be imported from the other games in order to complete the Pokdex, rendered every previous Pokmon game obsolete: Some Pokmon could only be caught during a certain time of day; some events occurred on specific days; new methods of evolution were introduced; eggs, shiny Pokmon, and breeding were introduced; and the happiness mechanic, used for Pikachu in Pokmon Yellow, was extended to all creatures. This was in 2000, and the commercial in question was heralding Pokmon Gold and Pokmon Silver.

Before I got my own copy of Pokmon Crystal, I would spend time using my friends copies of Gold and Silver. This generation immediately appeared very distinct from the Red and Blue generation: While the latter mirrored present-day Japan the large, bustling cities and small, insular towns Gold and Silver made an attempt to integrate facets of Japanese culture, from the fusuma and sh&333;ji that made up the houses in Ecruteak City to Lugia itself, a caricature of Ry&363;jin, the Japanese sea spirit. It was probably supposed to mirror the Ky&333;to-&332;saka region and the Nara peninsula (and Ky&333;to was Japans capital until 1868, when the Meiji dynasty moved to T&333;ky&333;), and Pokmons Kanto itself was supposed to mirror the real-life Kanto region, but it worked out very well for a sequel series. From then on, I figured that the generations that followed, and that will probably continue to follow, had to start with a whole new region and a Pokmon sort system just to not compromise the integrity of the series before them, since each one was a new idea supported by a criminal syndicate whose degrees of success would increase.

Now, its nearly ten years later. Since the release of Pokmon Fire Red and Leaf Green in 2004, the idea of a Gold/Silver/Crystal remake has floated around the Pokmon fan circuit; between then and now, there have been several ROM hacks, spriting projects, conspiracy theories, and evidence that someone would claim pointed to the creation of a remake of the Gold and Silver versions. Indeed, I would play in my head scenes from a Game Boy Advance remake of them that was based loosely on Ruby and Sapphire. Suffice it to say nearly every fan boy and fan girl had a heart attack when TV Tokyos Pokmon Sunday programme floated the news that Gamefreak Inc. Was indeed planning a new game that was a reincarnation of Gold and Silver.

On the surface perhaps influenced by every attempt I saw by Pokmon fans to make their own games, and the urgency behind Fire Red and Leaf Green to help cover every Pokmon for the Ruby and Sapphire generation Pokmon HeartGold and Pokmon SoulSilver didnt interest me that much. At most, I expected to buy it just to claim that I know something that goes on during the course of the game, which I dispensed in submissions on when I first joined, or to chew the fat with fellow Pokmon fans. From what Ive seen, Im ambivalent on the effect that past generations have had on it: Time has already been introduced and is carried over from the Nintendo DS clock; 3D modelling remains limited, but is now applied better in cut scenes such as those of Lugia and Ho-oh; the regional Pokdex sort has been reintroduced.

What might keep me going in this game, however, might not just be that a lot of the best features time, the thrill of a chase, and the telephone are finally coming back, but that the game finally will serve as vindication for everyone on every Pokmon forum who has dreamt of a remake, and a letdown for those who worked to create their own brand of it. Best of all, its refreshing to see an element of where the game comes from back in the games, where a lack of it has hampered the spirit of the game and possibly to relive childhood. I lament, however, that the same way I see kids who missed out on the first sets of Pokmon cards meander their way through the newer sets at tournaments, young Pokmon players in North America might not have an appreciation for what the games used to be when they pick up a copy of Pokmon HeartGold or Pokmon SoulSilver in the spring of 2010.
