How many times have you replayed HGSS? Compared to other games, is the number more or less?

Discuss!

I've played Heartgold twice and Soulsilver twice as well which totals four times overall. They've all been replayed for probably the same reasons given in my D/P/Pt post, generally I replayed since I enjoyed trying out various teams, reliving memories and battling familiar trainers again. I also used to occassionally forget what I was doing so a few resets were caused by that as well. XD

I've never replayed SoulSilver, probably because I have a huge collection of Pokemon on my current file that I don't want to lose.

I had never played Heart Gold more than once and couldn't finish Soul Silver because I had no time and I had already played Gold a number of times. TBH never.

I have only fully completed it about...twice (as in beating Red). I hate the Kanto part of the game, even in the originals, so yeah. lol I've played the Johto part probably...at least 10 times. Maybe more. And this is considerably less than RSE, BW, and FRLG.

Let's see, I played as the male once and as the female at least two times, yeah? really sad I can't remember haha ;p;. I have only completed Kanto's gyms one time. I never defeated Red in these sequels. I just go straight for the breeding/training post-game.

5 times and counting (: HGSS are my favorites, and its the only one of the games where no matter how many times I play, I still love it. (Emerald is also a game that I restart often for the same reason.)

I replayed SS once for a challenge that I did a while back. I played as the boy again because the girl just looks completely horrible if you ask me.

I beat Red twice in HeartGold and i've done multiple challenges in SoulSilver. I can't really count the number of times i've replayed these games to be honest!

I am surprised by how many people have only replayed it twice. I still have the ss that I got the day it came out, so I probably played the entire game through 20 time, this doesn't count how many times I have restarted it but how many times I have completed it. This was my only game for about 2 years, so I would always just play it again, not I am so tiered of it, the only reason that I get on it is to trade with people.

I've played SoulSilver through twice because I sold my original game and then bought another because I missed it

10+ at least. I prefer this game to platinum, which im on my 3rd playthrough, and my diamond has all my Pokes on them, so not replaying that. I like to do Nuzlockes and other challenges on Heartgold, but my god,doing Clair on a nuzlocke is hell ifyou don;t get a ice in the ice path

I replayed SS only once but I only reached like Cherrygroove City and then stopped...
On the other hand I did replay Gold and Silver about 5 times so I guess I'm pretty fed up with Johto storyline...

I've honestly lost count! I feel like the pokemon that follow behind you gives the game endless replay value. I just pick 6 pokemon I've never played through with before and start the game up from the start with all of their lowest forms. It's so much fun! it gives the game a whole new experience so I just keep playing through it! I love it! Gonna go for a mono type run through it soon!

I have never replayed HGSS actually. I don't like replaying games alot cause of all the progress I've made on those games and Pokemon I've caught is too special for me to lose. Sure I could transfer them to another game, though I rather keep them in the original game file and transferring a whole bunch of Pokemon is a hassle and takes forever.

Aside from Sapphire, I can't even recall the last time I played through a Pokemon game more than once, and HeartGold was no exception. I much prefer to keep all of my old Pokemon on my original file, and just try and train some of my other Pokemon up to beat the Elite Four rather than starting all over again.

At least a dozen times actually. Follow Me always keeps me going back for more

I just beat it again last week. Once I get through replaying Pt with the Torchic I got at the end of HG, I'm going to replay HG with the Squitle I got at the end of that same play through...

I played the normal edition one and then got a hacked/edited version with funnier sprites and more Pokemon! I know it's not the original one but this one is more fun!

I'm currently playing through Soul Silver having completed Heart Gold a few years ago, I'll count that as a replay personally.

Compared to my large number of R/S/E & FR/LG replays it's nothing, but I haven't replayed any other games so it's still more than most.

I've lost count. ;n; I had SS, which I had played twice before it got stolen. /sobcry. Then last year I got Heart Gold for my birthday, which I've played maybe... Three times? Then recently I got Soul Silver again, and I'm currently playing that. Soul Silver is going to be the one that I never restart and that I'll try to 100% complete it, and Heart Gold is going to be the one I restart whenever I get bored and want to play it again. xD
