When you got to the Safari Zone did you catch any of the Johto Pokemon to use on your team like Phanpy or Natu? I did catch a Natu and it was a very good memeber :D

Yes I did. =) I caught all the Johto Pokémon that I was able to find, because you were required to have them in order to complete your PokéDex. I didn't really use much of them in my team, though. Heracross was the only Pokémon that I've used, but only for a little while. I had it replaced with a Machoke few days after using it.
keeping it captured.

I used them a few times just for the heck of taking them along, however, I never really found them to be well-off than the other members of my team, because by the time I reach Lilycove, I have a self-sustaining team.

But Natu and Phanpy were pretty darn cute to ignore, tbh.

Hm...don't think I've ever used any of them bar Wobbuffett, and that was only to effectively trap Latios so I could capture him. Wobby was really useful for that purpose though.
I always try to catch them all though, with varying degrees of success - I only discovered this year that Heracross was in the Hoenn 'dex xD

I managed to catch them all! The selection wasn't was great as I would have liked for it to have been, but it wasn't a huge disappointment. I did catch a shiny Sunkern that was my first shiny. =D

I did catch an Houndour and in my opinion there was not much else there worth me wanting to train.

Emerald Safari zone Extension was necessary to complete the Pokedex. Houndoom is a decent Pokemon to use.

From the sound of it. A lot of these Pokemon sound useful if you aren't so far in the game. However, the only safari zone I've really paid much attention to is the firered and leaf green one cause it was a necessity.

To be honest, I wish that Safari Zone's section was a little bigger but oh well. It wasn't that to get some cool Johto's Pokemons.

I did catch and train Heracross and Houndoom (I trained them until lvl 100), and I also caught a Wobuffet (I like trolling with Wobuffet).

Of course I caught them all only to fulfill my PokeDex though as I am lazy to train any other poke in my dex other than the 6 members of my team

I caught Heracross and it was awesome. I have also caught Girafarig and it was good. Phanpy is good too but I never caught one. So I say Johto Pokemon are good.

I've never tried any Pokemon from the Safari Zone, however on my next runs of the 3rd Gen games I'll definitely take it into consideration. Donphan seems like a cool choice. I like to use Pokemon I haven't used before...

I remember trying out an Octillery named Sid, an Xatu I named Birdbrain and a Heracross I named Bugzzy. I think out of all of them Octillery and Heracross rocked. Birdbrain didn't do so well sadly and I dont know why. Ampharos seems cool and so does Ariados. So I would say yeah but get ready to train them for a good amount of time.
They laughed at my splash so I Hyper Beamed them to ash

I've caught a Houndour and it was a great member in my team! :3
It's my 2nd lead in my team.
To be honest, all of them are great, but Houndour looks good so I don't catch other.

I caught a few of the Johto Pokemon in Hoenn's Safari Zone (found my shiny Heracross there!), but overall, I didn't really use any of them as a part of my team. I was happy to see their inclusion though, since there would've been no other way to get them without being able to transfer between G/S/C and the 3rd gen games.

They are pretty good (i.e. Donphan), but I didn't bother to catch them.

I got a Natu! He was my flyer at one point. They're pretty good and I tried to catch all of them. :)

The only reason I went into the Safari Zone to catch these Johto Pokémon was probably to fill my Pokédex up, since I've never actually used any of the Pokémon caught in the Safari Zone at all.

I never did capture any Johto Pokemon. Mostly because I was never fond of them. The only one I liked was Larvitar, and as far as I can remember, I don't think there is one in the safari zone. There are a few others that I also like besides him, but Gen 2 didn't have a lot of Pokemon that I was interested in.

From all the generations, the second generation is least memorable . There are some really good Pokemon, like starters, Donphan, Skarmosy, legendaries etc, but I still dont feel as excited for 2nd gen like I do for 1st or 3rd one.
But I believe that is because I have never played Crystal for real.

This! I find the 2nd Gen to be so boring... I would never replay the games for fun.
