Yes, I bought it on eBay about 8 years ago. (Wow, that long ago).
It's pretty much the same game with different sprites and Pokemon.
However, I glitched it by trading to an Australian version after getting to 6th gym. Haven't touch it since then. \:

No.

Have seen game carts labelled as Pokemon Green and found it strange that the cartridge was similar to the blacks of GB Color titles.

Bought a boxed version, still waiting for a battery because the one in the Green is dead.
I also have a fake Green, but it won't load for some reason.

Yes, I've played it on somebody's Gameboy Colour years ago but I don't personally own it. Plus it's the only mainstream game I don't own.

No I haven't but I always wanted to lol. There was a rather funny hack made called engrish green. It was a literal translation of the script from green into english. Needless to say it was very bad.

I have only played the "English" ROM long time ago. My English was weak back then so I didn't have any problems with the bad translation. Maybe I'll replay it one of these days. I hope that the translation is so bad it's funny and not just bad.

Yes I have actually. Well a ROM of it but meh. xP I've also played the poorly translated ROM as well. xD I was supposed to get a copy of the game, along with every other first gen game in Japanese, but the guy on Ebay never shipped them off... >.>

I've played more of Green than any other Gen 1 game. I'm at Victory Road now. Been there for over a year. Should probably pick it back up sometime.

I have! For the Ultimate Solo challenge actually. It was frustrating to be unable to read. Overall, it was just like Red and Blue, although I encountered a lot more glitches than I think I should have. Plus I couldn't get Missingno to appear. *shrugs*

I don't think I could get into it if I couldn't read stuff D: I know the story and stuff, but y'know, I'd still like to be able to read. And when a Pokémon wanted to learn a new move and stuff I wouldn't know which move it was without the aid of Bulbapedia or something... so I don't think I'll ever play it.

I did, on a cartridge imported from Japan since 2004. Bad news though, it broke when my baby brother spilled his milk on it. Frustrating to read though, with the Japanese characters and such.

Why would I play green when there is a English version of it? In fact, I don't have any kanto games in my possession, although I used to have a copy of one of them several years ago.

I'm hunting down for a copy of a old gen 1 game!

I own it. I bought it off Ebay about 4 years ago now (wow I can't believe it's been that long). I only got to the 4th gym before I quit because playing in Japanese became too difficult.

Did anyone look up "Lavender Town Syndrome"? Apparently the high pitch notes and stuff from the Lavender Town music from the original Japanse version of Green caused hearing problems and swelling of the brain of young children, causing potential deaths. They apparently changed the music for UK and other releases of the colour games.

That's an old rumor/creepypasta and not true.

I never got a chance to play it, but was confused as when I was going to buy it it was in pure Japanese. I wanted to try and play Bulbasaur for the first time so I just restarted blue version to save some hassle of trying to find a real green version.

I bought Pokemon green and been playing it recently. I like it, I actually find it more of a challenge compared to the english counterparts because I don't know the Japanese language, I'm trying to figure out which moves are which. I actually like some of the green sprites more than some of the blue/red/yellow. They're not the best but they're fabulous.

Nope, never. Not sure if I'd want to, either, given it's only in Japanese, which I can't read. D=

I have played it but only more recently and not when it was new. I purchased a copy of it on amazon for $30 back in February, not sure if i over paid lol. Anyway it was quite easy to play even being in another language, when you have played the american equivalents dozens of times its hard not to know whats going on lol. I have to say i really loved the slight differences like pokemon location in the wild and the different floor plan in the Unknown Dungeon. Also not sure if anyone has tried but if you haven't dont... do not try to trade between the Japanese cartridge and the american ones, it will corrupt your save files... lesson learned!

After completing the game i was pleased enough to the point where i also purchased a copy or Japanese Yellow but sadly i haven't played that one very far and its collecting dust on the game shelf. I do intend to get it off eventually though and play it one time through at least.

Nope, I never did. I can't see myself playing a game with a language I can't comprehend.

I might as well try the patched version, but I'm a little irked by the graphics...

Yeah, I own a copy.
Got to the fourth gym, got the badge, then I decided to restart because I wanted to play Green with Bulbasaur, Blue with Squirtle and Red with Charmander.
Never got around to actually doing it, so it's sitting there, not collecting dust since I take good care of it.

Eh, Japanese Blue really isn't rare.

Good thing you didn't buy it, $30 for Green is a rip-off.
