Among all the negativity here lately about G/S/C, I figured we needed something more positive. Share your favorite things about Generation II that intrigued you. It can be something very small or something larger about the games.

          Two regions is the best part for me. They introduced a lot of my favorite Pokemon. The starters might not be great competitive pokemon but they all have great designs. The legends look excellent as well. I also think that the elite four is really difficult and I think that's a really good thing. I've played Gold and Silver and Heart Gold and Soul Silver so much and I still have trouble sometimes. Also Red is really epic. Is there anything else like that in other games? Finding him and seeing a level 81 Pokemon for the first time that belonged to a character in the game was actually really incredible for me as a youngster.

          As far as things that were introduced there are a ton.
          A Pokemon being able to hold an item.
          Breeding
          Dark and Steel types.
          Shinies
          Pokemon genders.
          Moves like Protect, Outrage, Megahorn, Pain Split, Spikes, Extreme Speed, Mega Drain and Sunny Day.
          The first time you could play as a girl.
          Friendship
          SPECIAL stat was split to Special Attack and Special Defense.

          Their post-main game is undoubtedly the best. You get to explore an entire region.

          Plus, this gen introduces my second most favorite Pokémon, two great types, and the day-night cycle.

            Simply put, the pokemon! They were some of the best of any region, and for the longest time Ho-oh was one of my favourite pokemon of all time

              I really liked the Day/Night feature, being able to choose a girl (Crystal) as your Trainer. I liked the fact that Team Rocket came back and all, as well as the Rival and their music.

              Second generation introduced one of the cutest Pokemon ever. n.n!!

              Aside from that, the Day/Night system is huge, and I really liked Silver as a rival, so there's that. Also liked the introduction of the Apricorn Balls, the Bug Catching Contest, etc... really, there's quite a lot!

                My favorite thing about G/S/C would be the full-color graphics that take full advantage of the Game Boy Color's capabilities (as limited as they were considering the era Generation II was released in). The full-color display was even better once you got to Kanto, as limited as that region was in Gen II (Even the rest of the world's releases of Yellow were limited to displaying a couple of shades of one color in the outside-of-battle overworld and even in battle, and in battles, Pokémon and trainer sprites had similar display limitations.)

                    I'm a huge fan of radios and I find the radio feature in Pokegear very fascinating.

                    - Celebi
                    - being able to put stuff on your select button
                    - multiple bag pages so you can actually store things without constantly having to run to the PC
                    - probably more stuff that I can't think of

                    Two regions to explore, as well as a plethora of great features introduced all at once. Most of the feature changes have managed to stick around, too, which is more than can be said for a lot of the cool stuff introduced in later generations (following Pokémon, seasons).

                        Introduced so many great Pokémon and arguably has the best post-Elite Four gameplay ever with the Kanto Region and Red.

                        In Crystal you could finally play as a girl! She's the Female Protag with the coolest design imo

                          I wish they had kept the day/night cycle and being able to explore a previous region.

                          My top three favourite aspects of the games were the following:

                          The introduction of Steel-types(which is my second favourite type after Psychic)
                          Finally being able to play as a girl(only in Crystal though)
                          The best postgame to date because we could return to Kanto. ^_^

                          I think playing as a female was a really huge thing, well for me it was anyway. I've always been a bit more attracted to feminine/female characters and this was just the thing the Pokemon games needed to make everyone feel more welcome imo.

                          The D/N feature, a female protag as an additional option, but the best would be the introduction of Dark (& Steel) Types, because Psychics dominated in Gen I.
