Pokemon Gold & Silver Remakes Tear Up Charts

Pokemon + Game Boy = Profit!!

Plain and simple. Plus, as it's been said, Gold and Silver were the ones really in need of a remake, if nothing else because they were better.

Sweet.
I wouldn't say they are my favorite, Blue was my favorite and it always will be, but Gold and Silver we're pretty damn awesome.
I'll have try and get a copy eventually.

Really chickorita? Why no tododile!

Pfft, these fools don't know the true power of Totodile but I'll show them

I'll show them all!!!

What's that? I can't hear you over the objective howls from Arcanine, Raichu and Me- no, that won't count, you'd cut me down for that. Arcanine and Raichu still stand, though.

Okay, Arcanine I can get behind. But Raichu? It's a fat brown mouse plugged into a mains supply. There's plenty of superior electric pokémon out there. I'd name Jolteon, but I've been known to field a team entirely made up of Eevee evolutions so I'm pretty biased in that direction... What about Electabuzz though?

Electabuzz? I'd tell you to get off my internet, but you wouldn't comply. Raichu's special is ridiculous. Get the surfing Pikachu, then evolve it into Raichu, give it reflect, thunderbolt, and either thunder wave or body slam, and you've got a damned monster on your hands.

I never was a fan of Electabuzz. Maybe Ampharos though.

This is kind of unsettling that Nintendo would remake something again and people just eat it up. I'm dumbfounded by the gullibility of N fans.

However, since it is Gold and Silver, I'll let it slide. I still have my old copy in the closet, along with Crystal. If they remake Crystal as well, I'll certainly turn the other cheek.

This has definitely piqued my interest. I'm still pissed when the battery in my copy of Gold died, taking my post-Johto crew with FEMALE FERALIGATOR with it. Gah!

I'll just wait until they release a new Crystal.
It'll happen. You know it.

Not surprised. I have to say that as a 17 year who picked up Pokemon a few months back...they've really lost their appeal. Pokemon may have been great in it's time but all I really see now is nostalgia value.

I may just get these anyway though. Sometimes nostalgias all you need.

awesome 'mons like Houndoom

That and Espeon. Psychic Eevee? Hell yes.

I'm going to have to get one of these when it comes to the US. Even though I still haven't finished Diamond >.>;;

This picture reminds me of my days breeding eevee's. Oh wait, I'm still doing that.

At op: I bought firered and leafgreen, but I noticed a fundamental problem. There wasn't enough new content, which probably aids to why it didn't sell as hot as HG/SS is selling already. HG/SS provides so much new content that a new game is justified. We are getting nostalgia and a new experience. It just makes sense that this game would sell like crazy. I'm sure they can expect a shitload more sales on the release date here in the good old US(and Europe too).

Pokémon is the behemoth of our (90's kids) generation. It's right up there with Mario and Zelda. Way bigger than Halo and Metal Gear could ever dream of. Whether you like it or not.

Gold and Silver were the pinnacle of the whole phenomenon. Two perfect sequels to the games that caused mass hysteria. Now the kids have grown up, eager to relive the jolly pre-puberty fun of Pokémon, and this time around they're not restricted by a limited allowance.

Call it milking if you wish, but whatever it is they do, they're damn good at it ^^

The inner Pokéfan inside me wants to state he's definitely buying SoulSilver. But he's on... vacation right now, and can't say a word. I do wish they'd remake Crystal, considering that was my game from the second generation.

Alright, it time for me to catch them all, again, for the third time...

I have been looking hopefully at my copy of Gold lately, filled with dreams of playing it again, but sad that I don´t happen to own a gameboy anymore, it will be great to get a remade version. I will buy Silver this time though, always wanted to see if there´s a big difference.

Edit: Cyndaquil FTW

As everyone else has said, best in the series

i havent played this game in years. awesome though

It's hilarious to think of pikachu and jigglypuff teabagging Master Chief and Marcus Fenix. If HG/SS sell another 1.4 million copies at the US release then we can offically say that it is more popular that WoW. Let them have their swords and their chainsaws and their epic mounts, we have goddamned pikachu.

Raichu was balls compared to Jolteon, Ampharos and now Electivire. The only thing that makes it good at all is Nasty Plot, but before that it was just outclassed. Raichu was for suckers who liked Pikachu.

MajoraPersona:

A few months ago, the twelfth movie was shown in Japanese theatres. If you pre-ordered your tickets, you got a special Pichu. If you bring that Pichu into these new games, you get another special Pichu. Then, if you take the second special Pichu to Professor Elm, he apparently tells you it's even more special, so it can't be traded. He bans it from being traded because it's special.

So is Pichu riding the short bus nowadays?

Now, I've never played Hideo Kojima's cinematic masterpieces, but I think that's the wrong guy.

Pikachu and Jigglypuff have been hurting that other guy for a while now.

Can't wait for the North American release. Gold was always my favorite game on the Game Boy up until Advance Wars.

Sweet. I can't wait until the American versions come out. Platinum was the first game I played through (I played on Blue a little bit, but ran out of time on a trip.

As far as gen 1 was concerned, lies and slander. I never particularly liked Pikachu, but a Surfing Pikachu that turned into a surfing raichu instantly negated one of elec types' biggest threats: rock and ground types, but moreso rock. With a high special rate and speed that guarantees a first hit, if they don't know it can surf, you can wipe out a the opposition in one strike. Fact.

Jolteon was great, he's probably one of the best if not the best, better than a non-surfing Raichu, but give Raichu surf and he's a monster. And if they aren't susceptible to water or electric, body slam them to high heaven.

As for gen 2, I loved Ampharos, so it's pretty much a tie. I never played anything past gen 2, so whenever I talk Pokemon, I mean Kanto and Johto.

YAY!!! Now make a successful Chrono Trigger sequel, or remake the first sequel.

Well, now I look like a moron. But yeah, crochety old Snake has been doing well since he can deal with Metaknight.

Trendkill6:

OT: It was the height of pokemon games it was before there were way too many pokemon, and the gameplay was still fresh and fun, personally I'll prolly end up buying too >.<

Totodile is the Johto Mudkip, and the editors didn't want to OFFEND anyone! Hahaha.

That Marcus guy and Master Chief will probably be in a Super Smash Bros. game one day, and then Pikachu will finally beat them up.

You're walled by any grass types, though. And Quagsire. And Dragon types. Also, Raichu isn't really that fast over all while Jolteon is in the top five. It gets murdered by those where Jolteon has Pin Missle and, if you want to work for it, Hidden Power: Ice, which turns it into one of the hardest things to deal with.

Ah, Smash Bros. Turning fanfiction into reality for over a decade.

I wish my gold version still worked. God I must have had 500 hours on that game.

They should have that be the tagline for the next Super Smash Bros. game.

Now if only I could read Japanese... Bugger! They would have sold one more copy.

That's a very good point. Still, I think N has pushed Pokemon way too far. They're releasing new pokemon games, then re-releasing old ones. It's confusing to me frankly.

Bet it will sell well in here in the U.S. when it comes. I know I'll buy the gold version. That was my favorite of the entire series, and yes I prefer Ho-oh over Lugia.

I answer with this quote. WORD FOR WORD!!!

Thirded. Pokemon Gold = sex for kids.

Except I still love Pokemon.

Everyone here prefers Lugia. Everyone.

EVERYONE.
Lugia Pictures, Images and Photos
Fist-wings for God's sake!

I declare a Ho-Oh vs. Lugia thread. Ho-Oh all the way!

Anyone know when or if its coming to America?

I loved Gold Silver and Crystal the most out of all the games, a long overdue remake is all it needs! Pokemon needs to stop making new regions and new pokemon (but a flamingo pokemon would be epic) and just make a new and improved game once every five years or so.

Pin Missle was great for grass types, but then against rock and ground, you're pretty much bummed. Like I said, body slam for everything else. Paralysis chance and high damage. Hidden Power: Ice means nothing to me though, was that in Johto? If so, I've shamed myself.

I don't doubt how awesome Jolteon is however. Bah, Mew kills all anyway, he can learn any TM, and I love him for it...

The reason the press chalked up was that they basically released this remake so DS owners who have the more recent games, can now trade the older Pokemon into one title, thus boosting the Pokedex. It sounds fine to me, I have both Gold and Silver however, and don't feel the need to get this at all.

While I feel the number of Pokemon titles is a bit exhaustive, I don't mind them because I don't play them, one for each generation I guess, but what I do mind about is the lack of creative originality with the more recent ones, they are getting somewhat obscure. But I would think that because I stopped at gen 2, others here would probably lynch me for saying that. Hell some people say everything after gen 1 is garbage, and that isn't true at all.
