Bringing back another thread! In the Fourth Generation, two games were created. Heartgold and Soulsilver, both of which were respective remakes of the games Gold and Silver. Out of the two, which one did you prefer? What are some of your reasons for your decision? Things to compare, if you're stuck for ideas can be version exclusives, certain features the other game might have not included or any other reasons you can think of. Without further ado, discuss!

Silver is definitely one of the most nostalgic Pokemon games for me and as SoulSilver was a remake of it, I've gotta vote for SS though I know HeartGold is great as well!

I picked SoulSilver because I prefer its version exclusives and my brother already had HeartGold so I decided to get the counterpart, which has been a trend for me since 3rd Generation.

I prefer SoulSilver as it has Lugia! Lugia over Ho-oh anytime yo. It was also the fist version I played, so it definitely has some sentimental feelings to it. I'm playing HeartGold right now; so far there aren't many differences I can tell. Both of them are great!

Not true yo, you can get Lugia in HG yoyo.

Anyways, I picked Heart Gold because I prefer its exclusives way more than SSs. Even tho I prefer Lugia over Ho-oh xD.

I first picked Soulsilver because I have gold first time around. I prefer Soulsilver as I think it has better version exclusives.

I preferred HeartGold because you get to catch Ho-Oh early. I always take it with me in my team. I simply love Ho-Oh, it's one of my favorite Pokémon ever. <3

I couldn't care less for Lugia on the other hand.

I picked HeartGold because I played Gold as a kid; essentially it's my favourite by nostalgia default. 8)

I chose HeartGold. I personally prefer the color of Gold over Silver. Also, I have Silver for the Gameboy so I decided to get HeartGold. (I also prefer Ho-Oh over Lugia)

I went with HeartGold. Even though I prefer the version exclusives of SoulSilver, I had Gold as a kid, so HeartGold was my primary choice. I also prefer Lugia to Ho-oh (despite my avatar), and fortunately it shows up at a higher level in HeartGold.

I would have to go with Soul Silver. I always get the version that has the Legendary I like more on the box art. My only regret with not getting Heart Gold is the fact that I couldn't use a Phanpy on my team.

I like phanpy a lot.

Heart gold. For the slightly weird reason that Caterpie is a heart gold exclusive, and Caterpie is epic.

I chose SoulSilver for some inconceivable reason and now deeply regret doing so, because I wasn't able to catch Growlithe... :c I wasn't a fan of many of the version-exclusives, either.

It probably had something to do with the packaging, the name ('SoulSilver' sounded more ethereal to me than 'HeartGold') and the fact I wanted a Lugia.

I picked HeartGold. While I have both SS and HG, I played through more of HG, while I just lost interest in SS. I'm not sure what the reason was, but I was able to play through HG more. Maybe it's because I prefer the PokeWalker that came with my HG game more, since it has the Ho-Oh protective case on it.

I chose SoulSilver because it's the one I have, and the version exclusives are better, IMO.
