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!

              I perfer SoulSilver, mainly because I like lugia. Some of the excluded Pokèmon were a total bummer but that's what the do for twin versions.

                  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 prefer Heart Gold because it has Ariados. Even though I first had Soul Silver.

                    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.

                      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.

                      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 like HeartGold, simply because of the name. HeartGold sounds cute and welcoming :p

                                  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.

                                          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.
