Soul Silver for me, I originally chose Pokémon Silver back in 1999 when those games were first release.. so for obvious reasions I chose SS.

    SoulSilver all the way! I am playing it at the moment, I love Johto league and Johto starters my fav of course Cindaquil then Chicorita and at the end Totodile. I like story with Egg and that you have Togepi and Lugia is pretty cool! Plus would love to try out a pokewalker but they cost like 15-20 pound on its own i might buy it anyway in near future

        SoulSilver, because the fact it has Lugia as the principal mascot. But in terms of gameplay, both games are mostly the same except for different Pokémon to catch in the wild.

          SoulSilver! I much prefer Lugia and I gotta have my Ninetales, so it was really the only option for me.

          SS, just because my first game was Silver rather than Gold, haha. Not much difference between the two that I'd care much (heck, you can get both legends), but I do like Lugia more than Ho-oh.

              I gotta go with SoulSilver. It had better version exclusives, Lugia earlier in the game and I got Silver when I was little so I guess nostalgia counts too lol.

              I played Silver, so I had to go for Soulsilver, just to buy a DS version of Silver. I prefer the exclusives in SS over HG. Lanturn and Skarmory are only available in SS.

              This is a tough decision for me. I've played and loved both versions. I do have preference of Lugia over Ho-oh, but HG also made me love Ho-oh a lot more than I used to, so it's a very close match. Which version has Growlithe, though? HG? Okay, I'll go with that.

              I like SoulSilver more only because it's the one I played. xD I like Lugia more than Ho-Oh anyway. :3 But if I could, I would play HeartGold.

                I played Gold as a child but voted SS on the poll because that's the one I own. I would have bought HG but I was buying used and every place I looked only had SS.

                    Soul silver. I like cool colors and water. So it was purely aesthetic.

                      I had Gold growing up, so even though I didn't really get a choice of the two games when I got it, I still would've went with HeartGold either way for the continuity. I actually do like some of the SS exclusives better, and I prefer Lugia, but at least Lugia shows up at a higher level in HG for a tougher battle!

                        I picked HG version purely because I had Gold when I was a kid instead of Silver. I could easily say it's because I prefer Ho-Oh (which I do) but you get both of them in both games anyway so it doesn't matter. The only real difference is the version exclusives like Growlithe or Vulpix for example.

                            I went for SoulSilver purely due to having the original Silver game first, it just seemed the natural thing to do. Also Lugia still remains my favourite out of the two mascots but still should've been water/flying type.

                            I never had Gold or Silver as games, but we do have Crystal. I went with Heart Gold while my brother went with Soul Silver. The reason why I picked Heart Gold is because one of my friends at the time has the original Gold. Oh, and Ho-oh looks better in the game than it originally did in its predecessor.

                              SoulSilver for life mang. I prefer the version-exclusives and I like silver jewelry better than gold anyway. I like the look of Lugia better, too, but I like Ho-oh's typing more.

                              Soul Silver for me. I like them both equally but I bought Soul Silver first so I thought that I might as well choose it!

                                I've played both; I had HeartGold for a while, but I somehow managed to lose it, so I got SoulSilver as a replacement. After having both, I have to say, I prefer HeartGold -- getting through Bell Tower was a lot less tedious than getting through Whirl Islands, if only because you need no HMs to go through Bell Tower. Yes... In fact, my first time ever even bothering with the Whirl Islands was with SoulSilver, I never even caught Lugia on my own in HeartGold. XD (I really hate caves, okay)

                                  I went with SoulSilver becuase I really liked Lugia and I still do. And just look at it a lot of blue -> water and I just like water pokemon :D

                                    I went with Soul Silver, to me Lugia looks a lot cooler than Ho-Oh, so it was personal preference.
