I got myself HeartGold because I had Pokemon Silver long ago and wanted to try out Ho-Oh. I did enjoy myself, and I got my Lugia on 70 so it all worked out xD

        I chose HeartGold, because my boyfriend and I always buy the companion games. I have Diamond, and he has Pearl, I have Sapphire, and he has Ruby, and so on and so forth.

        It's just a thing now, I guess. xD
        One day I'll have something interesting to put here.

        And you guys should check out my Journey fic, Long Road to Ruin!

          I had silver when I was a kid... I don't even remember why - probably because my best friend had gold.
          But I got soul silver because of that ^__^

              I use to be a Silver girl growing up. Mostly because I preferred silver jewelry and I loved Lugia.

              But now as I replay HGSS, I have to say I'm a complete HG-girl now! I love Ho-oh to bits and I'm so glad I got into playing the games again!

              Hey, I'm AJ.

              Soul Silver.

              I played Silver back in 2000, I prefer the name to HeartGold and I just generally prefer SS over HG.

              Heart Gold.

              I don't know why, I choose the games randomly.

                I had both Gold and Silver (I had first gold but after watching Pokemon2000 I wanted the Lugia and thought that I could only get Ho-oh on gold)

                nowadays I like Ho-oh more because of it's type Fire-flying and what I really disliked about Lugia is that he isn't a water-flying (that was a major childhood dissapointment) even though I like the appearance of Lugia better, Ho-oh is still my favourite of those 2
                so 1 point for Heartgold

                the version exclusives top 5 IMO:
                Arcanine>>Ninetails -HG win
                Kabutops>>Omastar - SS win
                Kyogre>>Groundon -HG win
                Gligar/scor>>Delibird -HG win
                Skarmory>>Mantine/tyke -SS win

                Heartgold would be a obvious pick for me...

                Gliscor is boss. Period.

                HeartGold because I had Gold version as a kid and the original has so many good memories. I remember I got both Gold and Silver as a First Communion gift from one of my teachers. I had to chose one and give the other to one of my brothers, so for some reason I went with Gold and so my older brother got Silver. So the original Gold has so many memories for me. PLus I like HG's version exclusives alot more.

                  HeartGold because Ho-Oh. But I was robbed of Groudon, which is only in SoulSilver.

                        I chose Heart Gold because Ho-Oh is one of my favorite Pokemon. Even though you can get it in Soul Silver as well, I preferred how it was the featured Pokemon.

                          I prefer SoulSilver. As far as exclusives go, the only one I really like is Ninetales. But Pokemon Silver was the first game I ever played on a handheld system, so it does have the nostalgia factor.

                          SoulSilver, for sure. The legendaries can both be caught so that doesn't effect my choice, but the fact that I bought silver back the does. And cause having Lugia on the box is prettier then Ho-oh.

                              I picked Heartgold just because its the first one and even though I've never played Soulsilver I did play Silver and I thought catching Ho-oh before Lugia made a little more sense, plus I didn't have to train it much since it was at level 70 when I found it.

                              Otherwise I don't see a whole lot of differences between the two.

                                I would prefer HeartGold. The first reason to choose it would probaly be the exclusives. Arcanine/Rapidash are my favorite pokémon, and Heartgold has Arcanine, along with other awesome pokémons such as Gligar/Gliscor, Phanpy/Donphan and Mankey/Primeape (I like 'em a bit.) But the choice is hard when you look at Lugia (The scene before battling him is fantastic and the music is insane.) Teddiursa/Ursaring and Skarmory in Soulsilver.
