I chose SoulSilver just because I originally played silver and I wanted the full remake experience I gues haha! But I do prefer Ho-oh over Lugia, however that wasn't a factor due to being able to obtain both anyways.

I chose HeartGold since Gold was the one I picked when it was released. I also prefer its features more then the ones in SS. I like both Ho-oh and Lugia tho.

Even though SoulSilver was my first game, I like Fire types. And you can get Growlithe. They're so cute!
You're welcome.

I always wanted Silver as a kid, yet never got it. Fast forward years later, I was psyched to get Soulsilver. Heartgold's opening of Ho-Oh flying is much more pleasant to me than Lugia swimming, however.

I started with Silver and choose to get SoulSilver for the nostalgia. I like Lugia better than Ho-Oh anyways. Ho-Oh looks like a rainbow turkey to me.

I chose Heart Gold because Ho-oh is awesome-RAINBOWS. I never played gold though, just silver.

My Shinies:
Quagsire M (Whoopie)
Corsola F (Coral)
Clauncher M (Dr. Zoidberg)
Yanma M (Blue Buzz)
Magikarp F (Goldy)
Goldeen M (Neptune)
Poliwhirl F (Polly)

Yes, I am aware that five of them are fishing shinies and that all of them have stupid nicknames.

HeartGold all the way. When I was a kid I originally picked Gold so it felt natural to me to pick HeartGold this time around. It was more nostalgic for me cause I remember playing the original as a kid and all the memories that came with it.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I picked HeartGold, because I felt it has better exclusives and I kinda wanted a slightly different experience to Silver.

I never have played SoulSilver! I got HeartGold because I had played the original Silver version, and so I wanted to try Gold the second time around

I love those remakes so much though -- so fun to get the same great storyline but with all the perks of the newer games!

I like HeartGold better, but like a fool I chose SoulSilver. HeartGold has better Pokemon to choose from, and Lugia is overrated.

I chose SoulSilver because I played Silver when it came out, so I was all nostalgic for it. I've always liked Lugia more than Ho-Oh anyways, so it wasn't exactly a hard decision for me. I really enjoy both games though. Personally, I think the exclusives in HeartGold are better, but that's not a huge factor because I didn't use to many version exclusive pokémon on my team.

I much prefer the version exclusives in HG - Primeape, Donphan, Gliscor, Arcanine, Sableye...

The only thing I prefer in SS is Ledian and... well... it's Ledian.

I never use legendaries anyway, so I have no idea about them.

I really love them both. I have all of the originals (G/S/C) and I have both of the remakes and they both have things I prefer. I like the version exclusives in Gold/HG, but I love Lugia which appealed me to Silver/SS first.

I chose HeartGold for the same reason I chose FireRed.
I had Red and Gold (still have actually), so that is why I chose the remakes of those two games.

Spanglish much? You didn't have to post your thoughts in both Spanish and English.

HeartGold, because Ho-Oh > Lugia.
"Billy Mays here with a limited time offer; our brand new product for the RU tier. Combining the incredible defensive capabilities of the Steel-type and Eviolite, Metang will make a splash hit for all those watching at home. For just the cost of one teamslot, you can get your own Metang today, as well a beautiful Eviolite stone that can be used as a gift, or a Cell Battery to make sure your Metang doesn't run out of juice! But that's not all! Call now and we will add an extra Stealth Rock to your order! This decorative piece is perfect for filling your Stealth Rock needs! Use it wisely though, because setting up Stealth Rock turns Metang from nearly worthless to completely worthless for the rest of the match. Thankfully, Metang comes with a built-in self-destruct button that allows it to make the most of its short battery life. Get yours today for not three teamslots, not even two--call now and get our limited edition Metang at the price of only a single teamslot! You will not get this offer anywhere else, or you get your money back guaranteed! Results may vary.

<TLCNU> Escavalier literally is 2HKOed by Stoutland Fire Fang, Metang was undoubtedly the much better choice."

I couldn't care less for Lugia on the other hand.
I agree. Ho-oh is just so cool and I've always wondered why Lugia is every one's favorite. What is kinda strange, is that 3 of the 4 friends that play Pokemon actually prefer Ho-Oh.

Pink Moon is on its way.
