Nope. I couldn't find a copy anywhere, so I just played it in an emu.

Never have, probably never will, but it would be pretty cool to play it since it, along with japanese red, were the first two pokemon games made.

I so agree with you, I always wanted to play Green, but I don't understand a word of Japanese at all, Leaf Green was nice, but it isn't the same

Played all 4 versions of generation 1 games. Feels so good owning these games, especially the Japanese version of Pokemon Blue.

I own the English versions of Pokemon Blue and Yellow for my GameBoy. I don't know why I have Blue instead of Green. XD Bulbasaur is my favorite starter. I love the original Pokemon games because they have the most familiar characters and aren't so confusing.
I love sweeping the floor

I really want to!!!!! But the cartridge, but sadly I don't think that will happen!!! D: first there is finding a copy, then convincing my mum to pay (because it won't be cheap, and how can I convince her to buy a game in another language which will eventually die cuase of the save battery) who knows maybe if I ever go to Japan.....

I indeed did and yep it was horribly translated (Fan translation btw) and the sprites were just creepy and terribad. But on the other hand it was funny reading some of the text like "Omni-Potent Ball" and "Oter"

So there you have it.

I played the original green then choved my arm down my throat because the lavender town music was so high pitched and I died...
Then I got resurrected by letting a channeler have a litre of my blood.

Nope. I have one being sent to me soon that I got on ebay. Assuming that it's not fake. And hopefully the battery's not dead, otherwise I'll have to replace it. I've never really played the 1st gen games. Only a little bit of Red, and then firered and leafgreen. I did play a japanese version of pokemon gold once and it was pretty confusing, but hopefully I won't have too much trouble.

A couple mates had it when they attended college with me, they had completed it, regardless of being in Japanese, but I suppose if you know your 1st Gen you can do it regardless of language.

Just strollin' to my next destination...

I have played it, and beaten it. I don't know how to read Japanese, but if you've played a Gen 1 Pokemon game before you can get through Pokemon Green. I got Green version awhile back at a garage sale along with the Japanese Red and Blue versions.

No, I can't say I have ever played that one. I have Pokémon Red and Blue, however, and I have read that the Japanese Green version is the same as the North American Blue version.

Yes, I have already played Green, but never finished it. Japanese language is very boring. I don't even reached Brock's gym.

I met someone on holiday who had Green Version, I played it briefly but I didn't really like it compared to Red, Blue and Yellow back then.

I played the one with crappy English translations. I was a kid when I played it, but I knew how to speak English well (English isn't our native language). It was good, if you didn't count crappy English.

Alas, I have not. But I wish I could. Although, I feel like it'd be a whole new game with just the Japanese text and different sprites.

Never have and I never plan to. I don't want to play a game that I cannot understand.

it's the only main game i haven't played yet I know there are roms around but it's not the same... I could get one if i wanted to but it's not on the top of my priorities list.
Sometimes I make music.

I have played the game because I own all of the pokemon games... (Kind of a collector I guess)
Trying to find time to mod

Lets see I like modding

I didn't know it existed until about three years ago. It does make me wonder how Japan fell in love with such an ugly game, Red & Blue have their imperfections, but Green is on another level. I personally wouldn't want to play it since I can simply enjoy the horrific sprites by finding them online.
