View Full Version : HeartGold and SoulSilver finally hits America

Okay guys! The moment we've all been waiting for! HeartGold and SoulSilver are FINALLY here! For some of us, we've been waiting a few months/weeks/days for this to come out. There are some (like me) that have been wanting it, for like, forever, and almost fainted hearing the news May 7th/8th in 2009!

Until Ryan puts up HeartGold/SoulSilver boards/sub-boards (which are most likely going to fuse with the D/P/Pt boards), put all details concerning what you think about HeartGold and SoulSilver here, including when you're going to get (if you're getting it), which one you have gotten or will get, etc.

I pre-ordered both about seven months ago at GameStop, and I'm getting my copies in about thirty minutes! =D

No pre-order for me, but as soon as my mom comes down to visit (which will be god knows when) I'm getting her to buy it for me as a late 18th birthday present.

... wow you know you're a nerd when your 18th birthday present is a Pokemon game.

I ordered mine on Amazon, saving $7.50 in the process. Little did I know that shipping date (which was supposed to be in 5 days) did not mean delivery date (12-15 days), which was too long for me to wait. Now I'm only saying a few dollars, and I don't get it for a week :sad:

Sucks Europe gets most of the stuff later. Im getting mines today as soon as I get a chance to go to Gamestop.

But I dont understand why it takes the 6 months just to translate the game? I really doubt that since there are hackers that translated it as soon as it came out. Its been out in Japan since like September I think.

I pre-ordered Soul Silver from the Gamestop at our semi-local mall, but I won't pick it up until tomorrow because my mom and dad are out of town. Sigh. I need a freaking license already. :/

I'll make today productive and finish Chapter Seven of my fic then.

I just got back from Gamestop at our local mall, and I got both versions! I'm SO excited!

And Khajmer, you're SO not a nerd. I'm 23 and still way into Pokemon. There's no shame in it. Heck, I even did a POKEMON Powerpoint presentation for part of my comp class's final.

Worst things about HG SS: They have the best 3 starters, its so hard to pick! Luckily my best freind and sister want different ones... So I'll probably end up picking Cyndaquil. Let's go Ditto and the Day care man!

I found my Mareep right below Violet City in that first patch of grass to the right.

Anyway, I chose Cyndaquil and caught two Pokemon so far. I'm waiting for Red Gyarados before I catch anything more. My team so far:

Quilava Lvl 14
Mareep Lvl 14
Pidgey Lvl 14

Soon I'll trade over my Pikachu Colored Pichu that knows *VOLT TACKLE* and beast through the game with a Red Gyarados. I just finished Union Cave and I'm going to beat the Azalea Gym next.

Just as soon as my DS charges a little. CHARGE! CHARGE! CHARGE!

I don't know, unfortunately ^^' Postal services and such are closed over the weekend here, so I'm presuming it'll arrive on Wednesday at the latest.
What I do know is that, no matter where you pre-ordered from is that it should be in on Friday. Although if it takes that long for mine, I'll be a little peeved 'cause March break is this week, not next week >.>

They need to ensure that the translation is absolutely perfect, make necessary changes to both the wording and the coding, and then sit around and wait for stuff like the the Surf Glitch to pop up so they can patch it up.

And it'll help greatly with leveling up my pokemon. I'm not all all that for because I'm taking my time and reminising of the good old days. XDD

Forget diets; the Pokewalker is the new thing! :D

I'm too lazy to do walks. xD When I get mine, it won't see any use until I get back to school on the 22nd. Hehe, I'm going to hook it to my scrubs and go to clinicals. :D Man, I just hope I don't get soaked while giving a shower like the last time. xD

Dude, I can't wait for summer. Two words: marching band. I'm going to have so many watts, my Pokemon will have to eat the rest.

Also, since this seems to be the main HG/SS for now:

Yellow Forest will be available on Wi-Fi in the US (possibbly in EU and AUS as well) from April 1st through the 30th! This course will offer four kind of Pikachu: 1) one that has Fly, 2) another that has Surf, 3) another that has Volt Tackle, and 4) one who simply has normal Pikachu, level-up moves. The first two are "Rare" while the others are "Common". Got this info from Serebii.

But not too much cuz i have like.... 3 college courses I have to take, and two of them are back-to-back on two days, so i'll ge gone from 2 to 8pm.... and my other class is from 5:30 to 8pm or something on two other days.

"I REMEMBER THAT! HAHAHAHA!" (Particularly with the one Sage from the Sprout tower who says, "Sway like leaves in the wind". Back when I was younger, I thought it was hilarious how he said that. xD)

Er, okay, maybe not out loud, but I'm getting such a kick out of it. I love all the new features, and the Pokewalker is so cute. <3 And having you're Pokemon following you around is so cute! <3

The wait was SO worth it Char. I feel the EXACT same way.

Playing through SS has really taken me back. I keep thinking: 'I REMEMBER THAT!', just like you. And yeah, the Pokewalkers are cute!! And having your pokemon follow is great as well.

I'm currently in the Slowpoke Well with a lvl 13 Cyndaquil, lvl 14 Pidgey, a lvl 1 Togepi, and a lvl 5 Sentret I caught in the Pokewalker. Wish me luck. XDD

I just finished battling Bugsy and did great! My Cyndaquil evolved and is now lvl 17, and my Pidgey is lvl 16, almost 17. I didn't plan on using Togepi and Sentret obvioulsy since their low lvl and I already had a double advantage over Bugsy. XDD Proton wasn't difficult either. I was expecting a bit of a challenge since he's an Admin and all. Oh well. XDD Thnx for the advice though. I plan on lvl-ing Togepi up a bit and sending it over to my Diamond game that I restarted so I have a pokemon that can use Rosck Smash since none of my Dia pokemon can learn it.

No, that's not at all what the case is.


Translate the game in desired languages.
Transfer from one market to the other (Japanese market to American Market, etc)
Ensure trademark/etc regional laws are clear.
Advertising and promotion for the region.
Manufacturing of translated box art, instructions, and game cards.


That's just the basics of what is done. Sometimes patching happens, but that's not just a regional thing. You gotta take into account that manufacturing and translating is a lot, and most 'hackers' do it poorly. At times coding needs to be altered for ingame events, but normally coding isn't touched.

Big ones are translating, advertising, and manufacturing. The other ones make up the rest of the time. Other areas, like the UK gain a type of delay cause of some translation needs (colour instead of color, for example) and regional advertising/marketing needs.

At some point in my sleep I briefly woke up with the DSi on . & turned it off with out realizing I had not saved my game so the next time I turned on the game my save point was just before the Bellsprout tower. with not 1 gym badge to my name..:rolleyes:

Thanks to some egg transfers and sending my event Arceus, Shiny Pichu and Jirachi, I made out with a solid start. The Arceus allowed me to get a lvl 5 Giratina in a side quest at the Ruins of Alph (you can choose between Giratina, Palkia and Dialga), the event Pichu + visit to the Ilex forest shrine produced the notch-eared Pichu (lv. 30), and Jirachi is just all kinds of awesome. And with an Eevee egg + water stone to create my Vaporeon and a Dratini egg, so far things are going great ^.^ I'm about to head down to Whirl Islands to catch Lugia.

Oooh, that reminds me. I need to trade my Arceus to SS to get meh Giratina after I'm done with Johto. :D My Arceus is one I got in Pearl with an ARed Azure Flute (unfortunately for me, the nearest TRU is like two hours away, so TRU Arceus wasn't an option D:), but it still works.

In regards to that, what are the rest of you going to choose? Giratina, Palkia, or Dialga?

I see, I see. Well, good luck!! Bugsy's not all that hard. His Scyther's a bit problematic if you don't have any Potions/Super Potions and a Fire or Flying-type pokemon. But all in all it only me maybe about 15 mins or so to beat him??

Yeah, I butchered my Pearl with AR to get all that stuff I'd normally have to go to Toys 'R Us to get. The last time I went to Toys 'R Us was 10 years ago...

So...I take pride in my legit hacks. Some of them, I did a lot of resetting to get good IVs. I have yet to take the time to actually train them. = /

I'm definitely picking Giratina, because 1) the updated sprites for Palkia and Dialga look silly because the angle is inconsistent with, like, every other sprite in the games, 2) Giratina's sprite kicks ass and 3) Ghost types are the best.

(Oh, yeah, and props for choosing Pearl. That and Soul Silver are the colors no one wants. I happened to pick both.)

I had to do it.I went with Giratina considering that its the only way I'd get a Griseous orb for the WIN!

haha We went the same route here. my son also got HG thanx to him holding on to Xmas GameStop gift cards. So eventually We'll all be able to get each others level 1 legendaries. we each pick a different legendary, we clone it on Diamond and distribute them to one another..How win is that?:thpoke_177:

Caterpie is available in both versions, and the Global Trading Center is in Goldenrod (to the west).

My Porygon2 just kicked Morty's behind. :cool:

Okay, I just need a Ledyba to have all the Pokemon on my desired team. I've been looking for one since yesterday until I checked Serebii and found out I had to Headbutt trees to get a Ledyba. I was like, "Wow, okay. Wish I was told that earlier. :/" Also, does anybody know where/how I can check my Pokemon's happiness?

SoulSilver: Bug-Catchign Contest only apparently.

Yeah, it really helps to know where/how to get pokemon before looking for them. xDDD I ran into that problem with Ralts. I thouhgt I could get it on Route 34, and I can, just not until I get the National Dex and can play Hoenn Sound on my Radio.... :susp:

Actually, the Wifi Club is available right after you beat the Violet City Gym my friend. xDD

Shion, have you been looking at Serebii? =O

LoL, just joking. I have, too, actually... ^^' But, er, to mostly figure out the PokeWalker. I found out today that you can get rarer Pokemon the more you walk. In fact, I caught some Magby today! ^^

Don't you love how there's isn't a limited amount of PokeBalls in the PokeWalker?

Yes, Yes I have been.... >>

Yeah, I looked on there mostly to plan what moves I want my pokemon to learn and to figure out the pokewalker. That's great!! Magby are pretty cute. ^^ Raise them well!! Yeah, I like the unlimited pokeballs. makes things easier.

I'm pretty sure there's a happiness checker somewhere, like on the Poketch in D/P, but I have yet to find it. = / Although, I did find a guy in Celadon's Game Corner that tells you what Hidden Power your Pokemon has.

I'm having a BLAST with these games! The nostalgia's really coming back. When I watered Sudowoodo and battled it, I was like: 'So we meet again after ten years, eh you ba****d??' I did NOT do well against it back in Silver and Gold, and I got my revenge!! :twisted:

I'm getting ready to fight Morty right now and get my fourth badge. I've got a little more leveling up to do, buy supplies, and I'm ready. Wish me luck!!

I have to say, I think he WAS easier to catch this time around. I dunno why though. Maybe because we have more experience as trainers now. xDDD But I was like: 'OH YEAH, IN YOUR FACE!! I BEAT YOU THIS TIME SUCKER!!'.

Oooohhhhh, congrats on the Dratini!! I want one too.... *is uber jealous*
