Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pokemon HeartGold (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I had originally missed this pokemon game but now I really regret ever doing that. This is by far the biggest game released, bigger than Diamond/Pearl, Platinum, Black/White.
What's so good:
Double the normal number of gyms
Loads of wonderful pokemon (including some from Generation IV [Diamond/Pearl's generation]).
As for this against SoulSilver, this game has more exclusive pokemon than SoulSilver and in my opinion, better exclusives too. I'm neutral between the legendaries.
The starters are amazing too, hardest choice I've had since Pokemon Red!
So many extra things (Pokeathlon, Battle Frontier, Trades, etc.)
Great difficulty curve
Good actual wild pokemon at start (wild gastlys in either third or second town at night).
Has wifi trading, which is also good.
I haven't yet gotten into the main plot yet, but I hear great things about it. Overall, this game might just be my personal favorite pokemon game yet.
