Friendly reminder that HGSS is completely soulless and objectively the worst way to experience Johto
>HGSS is completely soulless
Then explain this?
>dued wht if you teamed up and fought dragon bros
Shut the fuck up
yes and it was soulkino
'cept it wasn't, grow up.
arigatou, adjectives still shit on me hard
Silver was my first game and I disagree
Also, I fuck pussy and believe that ORAS killed pokemon for good
>left the original level curve and npc teams in tact
>customizable safari zone that allowed you to get post-game pokemon early as well as a shit ton of hoenn/sinnoh pokemon
>an entire new route in johto

Fuck off gay. HGSS is soul incarnate. They're literally called HEART and SOUL. HGSS set the golden standard for video game remakes.
>HGSS set the golden standard for video game remakes.
Then why did it get outsold by BDSP?? Lmao get rekt gay
Pretty much each pokemon game has outsold the previous entry regardless of quality. Idk what you're trying to say.
>>left the original level curve and npc teams in tact
This is the worst part of the game and makes all the other features kind of have trouble supporting it.
If the game was less fucked leveling curve, then yes, it would be 10/10 bestest Pokemon game ever.
Plenty of soul though, yeah.
normal people don't care about muh level curve
It's one of the main complaints about the game gay and has been since it was released
yes, by internet weirdos
normal people don't care, hgss is regarded as the peak of pokemon by everyone else
you're in the minority
it was my complaint when i played it when i was NINE
no it wasn't gay
yes it was
retarded shiteater cattle
lmaoo nobody ever complained about it until recently where zoomers desperately made up the term to try to bring down GSC in an attempt to justify why the shitty 4 times rehashed pokemon game they played when they were 8 is totally the best and its definitely not their nostalgia
Pretty sure I remember seeing people complain about the level curve back in 2010 on gamefaqs
no you don't
Bro, you do know that 10+ year old threads still exist in the HGSS board. Here's one of them complaining about the horrible leveling.
>A common complaint that will very likely be addressed
It's been a common complaint before that fucking youtube video you gay. I've been posting and making pokemon threads on Ganker since 2007, it's been around for a while. Not that you'll believe me, not like I care
no it wasn't
>i'm totally le oldfag guise
lmao pathetic larping zoomer
You better fucking believe it, bitch.
or don't, either way.
There is no level curve problem, it is pushed purely by schizofags who think it's impossible to win fights while underleveled but also hate the newer games for making grinding not a slow process at all. A "good" level curve is when your team is exactly equal to the levels of the opponent at all times, if Johto whiners actually played Pokemon games they would see that nothing has a good level curve by their ridiculous standards.
most of them are people who grew up on later gens and look at johto through the lens of all the other games.
>every gym ace MUST be a new pokemon
etc GS were sequels to the pokemania of RB, back when finding new and rare pokemon was still part of the fun.
>tfw was the kid on the block who found out how to get Natu/Smeargle
I grew up on RBY and GSC
I grew out of RBY and GSC and recognized RSE was the point pokedex SOVL peaked and DPP was the point gameplay peaked
as a child I could recognize Meganium and Typhlosion were fucking lame, but it took me until adulthood to realize Feraligatr was not much better
you are versing rocket grunts with pokes almost 10 level under yours in the radiotower quest that have the same shit mons, it brings the entire game to a halt
But enough about all grunts in every game.
this wasn't the case in gen 1, nor is it the case in gen 3
>Evil team battles after 3rd badge in gen 3 are same level as evil team battles after 7th badge in gen 2
You really aren't helping your cause
7/16 badges is about the same as 3/8 badges.
>evil team is done 3 badges in
You're not helping your case.
Don't lie to yourself bucko, gen 2 Kanto is subpar post-game content masquerading as another half of a game.
If they fucked off that retarded concept of "zomg kanto!!" you could have a much more fleshed out main quest
Those who only play with their starter played wrong.
You didn't beat the game.
I think making a mockery of your baby-tier rpg with a single mon is "beating the game".
yes it was you stupid gay
present the evidence, retard
This. Johto's level curve is fine. The issue is that there's no good wild area for grinding at the very end of the game due to Mt. Silver capping out at the high 40s but even then you can just rematch the E4. You can tell whether a ROMhack of Gen 2 gets this or not by seeing if they block off Mahogany Town before getting access to Fly.
>Claire's highest level pokemon is 40
>Lance's highest level pokemon is 50 cause he's a cheater
I never saw the issue. It's only a 10 level gap between the final gym and the champion. And you don't need to a have a full team of 50s to beat the E4+Champ, far from it. The gap was a fair bit larger in RB (like 15 levels or something).
i beat the whole fucking game with my starter when i was 10.
What the fuck is your problem.
WHAT THE FUCK IS YOU PROBLEM!?
Imagine if these were all official pokemon designs kek. The outrage would be tremendous.
yeah what if the mid far left and mid far right were actual designs, can you imagine.
actually i wouldnt mind if the top mid was real and not just a stand in for rhydon
It's always funny how they had specific sprites for the fossil pokemon and pikachu. Even back then they knew Pikachu was gonna be a fucking hit lol
Clefairy was originally going to be the mascot but they discovered late into development that Pikachu tested better with kids. There's a theory that children see yellow differently. Which is why so many children's mascots are that color.
Didn't Pikachu use the dragon design in R/B?
I used to think that most of these were generic designs, but all of them except the first flower thing are final pokemon, I guess the flower was cut or reworked into Vileplume?
>actually the truth
that's it. play the originals
Correct. GSC's graphics are pure S O U L
Wrong. There are some god tier tracks and you have GBC sounds for the poopy tracks like dragon den
Now kys graphics whore
> There are some god tier tracks
??? It's the original soundtrack ,excepted remixed to sound worse. Are you autistic?
National Park is even better in HGSS
Fuck off autist
Even if I admitted that you were right, that would be one track better, for every other track being worse. That's a nonsensical trade. You are the only autist, or the composer defending your work. Seethe.
Use GBC sounds item for the other tracks you retard
NTA but GBC Sounds is not accurate at all
play the originals. always.
It really isn't Anon
is ear cancer and does not sound like the original
surf, r26/27, azalea town, all god tier
you forgot the gb player
Don't forget a map remade with attention and love contrary to all the other remakes.
The OG had like two memorable musics, the National Park and Lance/Red battle theme. Only the Red theme is slightly worse in the remake I'd say. But other than that it improved everything.
Ho-Oh battle theme in the OG: https://youtu.be/CjYBs4zq_-E?t=3
Ho-Oh battle theme in the remake: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyBkdZNT1DE
Sure they pale a bit in comparison to the GBC colors and some character redesigns are shit, but they still look good.
>he OG had like two memorable musics, the National Park and Lance/Red battle theme.
That's the stupidest thing I've read today. You're not even autistic, you are a straigth up liar. Go fuck yourself.
was actually a new take on the old tracks rather than just a soulless remaster
>The OG had like two memorable musics, the National Park and Lance/Red battle theme. Only the Red theme is slightly worse in the remake I'd say. But other than that it improved everything.
Clean your ears, retards. HGSS's soundtrack is an auditory diarrhea.
>gorgeous pixel art/3d combination
yeah bro, rixels, mixels, and lost pixels are so goood, i love cheap visual tricks that compromise the quality of sprite work!
lol triggered little gay. I bet you frothing at the mouth and you furiously typed this shit out
Not an argument
Pokémon never should have moved past the HGSS/B2W2 style graphics
It was the absolute PEAK
HGSS is the only good remake
Sure the original games have that nice color palette going for them which totally makes them worth playing, but that aside, HGSS are better in almost every other ways.
And I say that as someone who prefer the 1G games over the 3G remakes
>dark mysterious cave
>mat_fullbright in gmod
Both are good but I want to creampie the gameboy version and raise several children
>always skip this
GSC only looks slightly better. HGSS's gameplay is an improvement all around. I don't think GSC is straight up obsolete, but thinking HGSS is inferior is completely delusional.
>but thinking HGSS is inferior is completely delusional.
It's simply the truth. The changes and improvements of hgscc are inconsequential. Pokemon is about the SOVL. And said sovl is simply found in the original, but for the sound and the visuals.
but hgss has a lot of soul
you can't deny this
The only objectively bad part is the butchering of the Kimono girls and the mandatory legendary fight.
Forcing you to climb Sprout Tower, and reworking part of Diglett Cave and Mt Silver to use the garbage Rock Climb bring it down too. Also Sprout Tower no longer has a powerful painting of a Bellsprout, which further brings the soul of the game down.
Mixed feelings on that. The cutscene is very nice, but knowing you are forced to deal with the legendaries along with that crappy kimono girl story costs it points. Its also why I only want to play HG as I absolutely hate dealing with the Whirl Islands.
>Its also why I only want to play HG as I absolutely hate dealing with the Whirl Islands.
That's funny. I always found Whirl Islands easier than Tin Tower.
Tin Tower is a fun puzzle to me and doesn't require boxing a team member for a HM slave.
They're quite literally the best pokemon games ever created, and we will never see their like again.
this picture is my favourite of all pictures, I thank you for posting it
Here is the daytime version with Ho-Oh
What are the lights at the upper right bottom? I mean what city. That one before the lake rage wasn't that big
That's Ekruteak or however you spell it.
No, the city you're looking at is Ecruteak, he means the one in the distance.
I think it's supposed to be Goldenrod?
White City from Stadium 2.
You have no idea how badly I wish this were real.
My dick can only get so erect
Friendly reminder that Pokemon was never good and your GameBoy trash isn't any better
Nah bro, HGSS is a great game and the best remake. Still inferior to GSC but in no way souless. Except, maybe, the OST.
>Still inferior to GSC
Objectively incorrect, you drooling retard. People like you should have a nice day now.
The absolute state of sinnohfetuses.
>Nostalgiafag can't actually provide a reasonable argument
I'm probably older than you, too.
Your argument is invalid.
The only thing wrong with HGSS is that it kept the original game's shit level curve
kys gay no one cares about muh zoomer eceleb level curve argument
Anyone that thinks the shit remakes are good is a subhuman
Correct,because gsc can be sped up in emulators until it becomes bearable.
HGSS can also be sped up in emulators?
Unpopular reminder that gen 2 is completely soulless
Lead designer stated outright they were told to dumb down the pokedex designs so it would be easier to make toys
something doesnt add up here
is that a pokeball???
i only like it for the pokeathlon, the following pokemon and the girl protag design. everything else is worse.
>Filtered by the most ludokino remake in existence
Low test frfr
Pokemon was better when it was based entirely on 90s Japanese architecture and locales, specifically the rural areas of Japan.
I liked when it was based in the real world and Lt. Surge was a Vietnam veteran.
>vietnam vet in 1996
what an old cunt
The proof of the dichotomy between
>non Japanese thing
could never be proven more right than this post. You could show a weeaboo from Ganker a picture of some place in Tennessee or West Virginia even and they would say it's soulless hick shit. Your life would not be better in Japan, if anything it would probably be worse.
I'm not a weeaboo at all. I don't even like anime but there is something extremely comfy about rural Japan and it definitely has a certain aesthetic.
It's just as rural as any other rural area, you're just a weeaboo.
Nah, I appreciate comfy villages all over the world. Rural Japan just has a lot of nice ones though.
You said the word Japan twice in your post, you're a weeaboo.
rural Tennessee is also very comfy. It would be a better setting for a pokemon game than most of the places recent games have been based on
It's so funny seeing people go absolutely mental when someone likes anything from Japan
whats even funnier is when they hate that thing irrationally until they learn that it is from japan, then they pretend they always loved it
name 2 cases where that ever happened
Nah. Unova was comfy as fuck and it's based on the US North East coast. Hell the starting town in BW2 is extra comfy for me because my hometown is almost exactly like it right down to the surrounding meadows and farms.
English website nipper
Clover is the peak of pokemon
Best post in the thread
Clover has no reason being as good as it is.
more like シッティamirite? xD
Is there a rom hack that has the one screen Kanto intact?
>still arguing about mainline games
They're all shit
just the switch games
Nah everything post DS was shit. BW2 was the last time pokemon was good. 3D killed pokemon, which is odd because the 3D games we had before (Stadium 1/2, Colosseum, Gale of Darkness, the Wii pokemon stadium knockoff, etc) were all not so bad and some even great. Then again pretty sure all of those were made by devs other than gamefreak. Gamefreak's 3D is shockingly horrible and that's also when they found out they can start selling complete garbage with no features, no budget, and full of glitches and still make a profit so they stopped trying.
That said, going back to play old pokemon games is too boring as everything is too easy and I did it to death as a kid. Romhacks are the only way to enjoy pokemon now and also hardcore nuzlocke rulesets.
I agree. Though I did enjoy SuMo outside of the hand holding and shit story. The music and region were great, and the totem challenges were a cool twist on the formula.
>Nah everything post DS was shit.
>gen 5 started npcs explaining mechanics to you even when you know them
>gen 5 started gift pokemon to compensate for type advantages
this was a thing long before gen 5
End yourselves chud gays
you need to add a second meme arrow to properly link to posts like so
Not an argument Unovabitch.
Yes, Gen V was the beginning of the end, but it still has good music and mostly good Pokémon designs.
>made by devs other than gamefreak
Gamefreak IS ALWAYS the at the core of everything wrong with pokemon.
>3D killed pokemon by adding multiple attack animations, idle animations, amie animations, and now swimming animations with SV. Pokemon was best when Pokemon were dancing gifs.
Why are Unovafags like this?
I actually replayed Heart Gold recently and made a montage of some of my adventures.
based game enjoyer
Yeah it was fun. Although I was playing the Drayano hacked version for all the Pokemon and increased levels.
congrats on the shiny cloyster
I was thinking that too.
I love shiny Cloyster.
On PBR wifi back in the day I would use a shiny Cloyster as much as I could to ice beam gays who brought Garchomp to a casual battle
He didn't fare too well but damnit I still had fun.
>shiny in a Drayano hack
What the fuck you talking about, PBR was Pokemon Battle Revolution on the Wii. Only good for casual Wifi battles against retards and try-hard Japs (I had 700 hours on it)
Yeah it sucks. I don't think the odds are increased but I don't really like playing the older vanilla games. They're way too easy. Even the Drayano hacks aren't hard but it's at least not totally braindead if you don't overlevel.
>I don't think the odds are increased
Anon, the odds in Drayano hacks are usually about 1/500?
>random legendaries shoved into random locations with 0 thought
Drayano is a hack and all his shit is overrated.
> Blaine has an actual gym and isn't just chilling in a cave
That is the cave. The volcano on Cinnabar erupts and destroys the gym. He moves to the Seafoam Islands.
someone post the pixel art version of Ecruteak
ZOOMERS. Do NOT get memed into playing remakes instead of originals. Always play original first so you can seethe about how the remakes ruined everything afterwards. Instances of remakes being better than original are close to 0. That's valid for every game in existence. It's not a recent trend, Nintendo remade Super mario bros 3 on SNES and it looked like absolute trash. The only good remake I can think about (didnt play it myself) is the resident evil one one gamecube which I heard good shit about, but it may be wrong.
I love it had a day and a night version of the wild battle theme
Didn't HGSS also have something where you could influence which pokemon showed up in your game depending on which Gameboy cartridge was in your DS at the time? Like ruby would give you X sapphire would give you Y and fire red would give you Z or some shit like that? Or was that in the gen 4 games?
That was DP
And it was the only way to get a Gengar if you didn't have a friend
Yeah. IIRC DPPt had that as well.
That was a DPPt feature.
HGSS had something similar though, which is probably what you're thinking of. Hoenn/Sinnoh sounds, where if you listened to a certain radio station in different areas playing Hoenn/Sinnoh route music you would encounter Hoenn/Sinnoh Pokémon.
Good lord I'm listening to battle tracks of HGSS right now, they are so GARBAGE compared to the original ones. This is rough.
This is the sole reason why GSC is better than HGSS
The photographer is an underrated feature
Why? Kris is better than Lyra in every way.
IS THERE A PATCH FOR HGSS THAT LET'S ME USE HMS WITHOUT TEACHING THEM TO A POKEMON
THIS IS LITERALLY THE ONLY THING KEEPING ME FROM REPLAYING THE GAME
Every single modern gen 3 hack has that feature but gen 4/5 hacks are still outdated shit
>appears before you the moment you step foot outside of ecruteak city
Use mean look
throw ultra ball and hold up+B
Reset and try to get shiny.
Looking at this makes me want to create my own Pokemon rom hack.
For me, it's Polished Crystal.
So, this is just Crystal with more pokes and mechanics? Curious about it since Crystal is my fav pokemon game
For the most part yes. Optional phys/spec split, optional improved level curve (up to 100), way more bag storage, later-gen evos (like gen 4 babies), cameo fights, improved battle tower parties and a battle factory in Viridian, cameo fights, etc.
The current public release has the redesigned box system similar to gen 3 but you can grab the actual perpetual beta off their discord with the redesigned+expanded dex.
So many cameo fights I listed them twice.
Cool. I will give it a try. Thanks anoncito
Is the version on github the older version? I don't want to join some discord.
Yes. Here's a version posted yesterday: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/933019563535253534/1083743895478866000/polishedcrystal-3.0.0-beta.gbc

You fags not only have no taste, you genuinely do not understand game design whatsoever.
Anything that isn't a difficulty hack would clash for you.
Yeah, play sour crystal if you want to play gen 2 in 2023, the person who made it actually understands how to sprite and he did a damn good job at it.
Then you might as well not play HGSS either.
>>>Gen 3 and Gen 4 sprites that clash horrifically with every other Gen 2 sprite in the game
'Cept they dont
>>Gen 3 and 4 pokemon when they literally did not exist in Johto yet
>Gen 6 moves and Fairy type
>Gen 4+ pokeballs making apricorns obsolete
Not bad at all.
>those extremely shitty trainer sprite edits
They aren't shitty.
fuck yeah, loved Polished Crystal
The level curve was fine, you were all playing wrong
GB Player VS Original
>game is filled with shitmons
name a pokemon game that isn't
for me, it's pokemmo
Dropped it after they nerfed Recovery moves.
Blame gamefreak, they just mirror the most recent balance changes
I always wanted to get into this since it sounds perfect but the battles are so goddamn slow and I hate the technical visual difference between regions. If they just remade them using all the same assets it would be so much better.
>If they just remade them using all the same assets it would be so much better
The only reason they've avoided getting C&D'd is they leave the roms untouched, if they did what you suggest then it'd be dead within a week
Only good when it was purely gen 3. All the assets clash horribly now and competitive with gen 5+ shit sucks donkey dicks.
I wish I could go back and relive this game when it was comfy gen 3 kanto only and the servers were packed.
pokemon before the split was too rough man, even as a child I felt it
the battle visuals are such cancer i swear to god. constantly zooming in when you use attacks. also it forces me to use pokemon i dont want on my team just to win battles which sucks big time for me.

You're retarded. There are non retarded people who know what is soulful and soulless ( normal human iq + no autism) and there are retarded people who don't get it, and pretend that the soulless stuff they like is soulful to protect their ego. The only way to tell who is right is to not be autistic.
Jesus fuck dude. This was a blast from the past. You know when you smell something and it brings back feelings and memories. That just did this for me. I remembered living with my mom sitting in the living room playing this.

>they couldn't even loop its fucking tail properly
I'm convinced the only reason anyone likes gen 5 is because they arbitrarily reduce their standards for it.
Levels don't even matter if you oneshot everything due to your overinflated stats from EVs and badge boosts
i bet your bitch ass uses potions mid battle and plays on team switch mode
No I just click STAB moves and delete everything.
>mfw stuffing my bag with full restores ethers and elixirs before E4
Fully animated front and back sprites for 500 creatures was an ambitious idea but met with poor execution. It's also why the 3D models have such limited movement.
>It's also why the 3D models have such limited movement
i'd advice you to pay attention to the animations on the mons in SV
there's so much subtle shit going on all the time and it's legit what 80% of dev time went to

Right on time.
Dude it's okay to admit that your game has one fucking flaw. At least it's been easily fixed by rom hacks ages ago, you can't fix the 3D era games mediocrity no matter how hard you mod them
No one said Johto is flawless you dumbass retarded eceleb parroting zoomer, maybe start thinking for yourself instead of screeching about level curves like an NPC.
>no one said it's flawless!
>autistically tries to rebuke every flaw put forward including lame-o rattatas as the main grunt pokemon even in the climax
People felt this way before whoever the fuck you are talking about posted it on youtube.
In what game does this even happen other than gen 2?
EVERY SINGLE ONE PRE-EXP SHARE YOU FUCKING ZOOMER RETARD
No it doesn't lol
YES IT DOES
>Poketuber drone has no retort
Everything else aside, Jhoto is the most aesthetically pleasing region.
gen 2 games are some of the best looking games ever made period, they are peak 8-bit jrpg kino
the games still play like shit after the 4th gym but from the starter town up until then is a massively comfy experience
I didn't even mean graphically. I just meant the rural Japan vibe.
>the games still play like shit after the 4th gym
have a nice day THEY ARE PERFECT
eat some more mayo you lonely fat cunt
This is your reminder that gen 2 killed pokemania before RS even started development.
Torres you dumb cunt, pokemania was already winding down before GS released. It was entirely unsustainable hype that has happened again (closest we got was Go's release).
Go was worse than early pokemania, you had both adults and kids playing pokemon for the first time
What the fuck are you even talking about? I was still in school for Gens 1-3 and all the people that played video games were hyped as fuck.
>some guy in trust you with bringing his bird to his friend
You did bring KENYA to her friend, right?

HG/SS would be great if someone could somehow hack it to display on one screen. I fucking hate that the bottom screen is used for close to jack shit but what it is used for is vital and requires either both screens to be present or using screenswap
Am I jaded or are gen 9's designs just really shit? Even as far as gen 8 I could find a decent chunk of Pokemon that weren't that bad but in gen 9 I think there's like 3 Pokemon I like the look of
I like 9's batch a lot more than 8's. Maybe 7's too.
I actually love 9. Its pretty up there compare to some of the gen
Shit selection with many forgettable pokemon. It doesn't even have that many legendaries.
I found a lot to like in gen 9, but I do in every gen
This is the first set of designs I've been a fan off most of the new Pokemon since X and Y, so it might just be you being burned out of the designs or just personal preference.
That said, whoever okay'd this design should be fuckin fired. Actually ruined the best looking starter.
It was a guest artist that did bayonetta
I love my gay duck and his stupid dance, reminds me of Sylvando from DQXI
There hasn't been a good water or grass starter since Gen 4. They're either gay or retarded looking.
There hasn't been a good pokedex since gen 4 all round, just a couple diamonds in the unfiltered raw sewerage
9 was my breaking point. 8 was up there but there were a few designs I liked. 9 was all around shit.
>can just go south of violet city, grab a mareep, and solo the gym
what were they THINKING?

Only Brock, Koga and Sabrina don't have this fuckery. The last two come after a mandatory Surf section.
Gen3 is pretty good about this if you think about it. Only Roxanne, Tate+Liza and Brawly have shit that easily beats them near them.

Pokémon lost its appeal when they start to make foreign regions (post HGSS, gen 5+)
witnessing the miracle of creation with the Ganker bros~
What the fuck is her problem?
>somehow catching raikou in the patch of grass before ecruteak after beating the 4th gym and feeling like an absolute chad
happier times tbh, i miss it
I'm completing a Crystal run and still haven't seen Entei, the motherfucker. Was my first time playing it so was spooked when the music forst played for Raikou.
I captured this motherfucker at lvl 10, I leveled and evolved it and now it's lvl 33.
It still hates my guts and sometimes refuses to fight...
Level up a little more against some fossil Pokemon and he might listen to you.
I don't think I've met any yet
Ash is main character in this ROM

This is all I have.
PLA was the closest we will ever get to 3Dkino in Pokémon.
Well, until Legends: Celebi at least, which I'm PRAYING will be on the next-Gen Switch.
I've been thinking about going back to johto recently. Should I go for sacred gold/storm silver or polished crystal?
Both are excellent romhacks and a very good experience, I just ended up playing both. Just start with what you feel like going for more, the GBC or NDS aesthetics
I had the ability to teleport into games and spent a few years in Silver, it was great
Reminder that the person shilling Polished Crystal in every Johto related thread on Ganker and Ganker is some chud from the Discord, likely on the dev team themself, who spends all day every day looking for threads to hijack and you should report and ignore them for advertising.
you are not japanese
How would people feel if Gamefreak made a fully fledged sprite and grid based game again, could it be good?
Man the original pokemon games are so ugly. You gays really need to remove your nostalgia goggles. Everything is placed in ugly blocky squares. It reminds of me of how I used place tiles in RPG Maker as dumb kid. The trees in particular look absolutely terrible. Pokemon has always had shit visuals.
