    I probably won't get the chance to get it today, but I'll definitely try to get it tomorrow.

    So, apparently there's been a big fuss over the fact that Tin Tower will be known as Bell Tower. I kid you not. Tin Tower may have been a translation error in the original, but it's still canon. Regardless, I'm still pretty exited about getting it. They also replaced the slot machines with a mini-game, but honestly, the mini-game sounds more entertaining than the slots ever were, so it's a win-win.

    Actually I can confirm the tin Tower's name was changed however as soon as I get to the to Ecruteak City I'll look around and see if I can dig up any in game hints why the name was changed. however I think it has something to do with the clear bell...

    Voltorb flip is surprisingly addicting. I hope to put together a strategy guide for it soon and throw it up on the site, but the basic idea is that the top number is the sum of the numbers in that row or column (Voltorbs count as zero) and the number next to the Voltorb is the number of Voltorbs in that row or column (duh). If there are zero Voltorbs in the row, it's safe to flip over everything in that row, and another, less obvious, strategy is if the sum of the two numbers is 5, don't bother fliping over anything in that row or column since it's all either 1s or Voltorbs. Once you get a 2 or 3 you can eliminate other rows and columns like that by applying some simple logic. I was hoping to beat Whitney tonight, but at this rate that doesn't look like it's going to happen .

    I am going to be picking up both games right now from the gamestop that I pre-ordered them from. It should be a fun experience to start playing these games now that I played them way back when.

    I got mine yesterday. Although I haven't made a lot of progress, the Pokewalker is fun to carry around. I caught my first Pokemon on it today, a male Nidoran.

    I can't get it until the 21st ç_ç

    I pre-ordered it, and then found out about an emergency that has taken me out-of-state for the week (I'm using hotel WiFi now.) The folks at my GameStop have assured me that, since I chose to pay full-price at the time of the pre-order, they will hold onto a copy for me for longer than the standard 48 hours.

    I've already worked out HMers based on serebii's info on HM compatibility. To my surprise, I ended up going with Chikorita as my planned starter/HMer; by the end of the game I'll have three actual battlers, a Bayleef with Strength/Rock Smash/Flash/Sweet Scent, a Farfetch'd with Cut/Fly/Headbutt/Thief, and a Poliwrath with Surf/Whirlpool/Waterfall/Rock Climb (I'm going to carry a Sentret in the early game to use Cut and Surf until I can catch the Poliwhirl and Farfetch'd.) There will be much fun had. XD

    Me and my parents went to Sam's Club (among other places) out of town on Sunday, and my Dad bought both "HeartGold" and "SoulSilver" (I helped pay for the later 'cause that was the version I wanted) for a good price.

    Yeah, I saw the Tin/Bell Tower thingy on there, too, and I don't care too much, but "Tin Tower" was the original name, so I was like "What?"

    The new mini-game is (I think) new to me, though! I'm not that far along, though...I'm leveing up my 'mons below Violet City right now (I'M SO SLOW)!

    So far, my team is Totodile, Pidgey, Beedrill, Geodude, and Mareep. What do you guys have?

    EDIT: Just thought I'd better mention a couple things that slipped my mind when I first posted this...I actually have NOT beat the Sprout Tower nor the Gym yet, and I was honestly surprised I was able to catch a Mareep at THIS stage of the game! That's not how it worked before, right?!

    All I have to say is...poor Falkner is really gonna be in trouble when I get to him. (Oh well, despite his faults, he's still my favorite Gym Leader in the entire "Pokemon" franchise. )

    Wow, being able to get Mareep before Falkner makes him SO much easier. They probably did it because every version's had at least one pokemon you could get before the first gym to make it easy as cake except for GSC.

    My Dad has gotten to Azalea Town this morning before he went to work, and he's saved at the beginning of the Slowpoke Well.

    All I got so far is a Zephyr Badge and some Unown/items from the Ruins of Alph.

    I'M A SLOW PLAYER!! (LOL)

    I used Mareep (Level 11, I think) against Falkner's Pidgeotto, and although I had to support her with a Potion, I won the fight okay. (Pidgeotto's Roost made me had to blast him a few times to knock him down, though.)

    I have to agree with you there some, though...in "GSC", Rock-types were available to use against Falkner (though I think you might have been able to get Mareep for the Gym by trading with another game that's gone further than that...I've personally never done it, though).

    BUT, he outfitted his birds with Mud-Slap back then, which, IMHO, makes the actual fight with him HARD if you used the "correct" type, 'cause Geodudes are slow, Onix lacks a super-effective move at the level you would fight the Gym at (I think), and Mud-Slap lowers Accuracy with each hit! And I'm wondering now if using a different type of Pokemon, as long as they were fast and strong enough, makes a difference or not! Yow.

    Yeah, that's what I meant - a decent super-effective Pokemon. It's also the only generation without a starter that will give you a gym advantage. Although both of these things are probably because Brock, Roxanne, and Roark are all Rock-type Gym leaders and Grass- or Water-type Pokemon are common enough.

    Just beat Bugsy last night, btw, and the game came in the mail two days ago so I'm def behind

    I'm going slow too (reached Azalea Town just last night). I guess being able to hatch eggs using the Pokewalker was just pre-game speculation, but I haven't tried yet to confirm that.

    I'm using Doduo instead of Pidgey for my Flying type to use against Bugsy. I might pay for it later, thanks to Doduo/Dodrio's shallow movepool, but right now Doduo has a better Attack stat.

    I just torched the fuckers to death with my Quilava, lulz. My party atm is pretty silly - Quilava, Mareep, Wooper, Gastly, Spinarak, Togepi. I was gonna trade Spinarak for Hoppip, but I'm not sure, I think I might wait for a Sunkern and use it. I pick fairly odd Pokemon sometimes, lol. Togepi might stay in my party, I'm undecided. I took him to Bugsy and sent him out after using Gastly's Hypnosis for exp.

    I forgot how hard it was to find decent Grass-types in this version. Meh.

    My team so far has mostly been females. And by mostly, I mean all but my Starter. I think the game is unintentionally giving me a subtle subliminal message to get a girlfriend or something.

    I hate Morty. Hated him 8 years ago. Hate him now. I lost to him with 1 hp left on his last Pokemon. -.- Night Shade is ridiculous.

    Anyway, Ima go run around the Moo moo Farm and level my team of 4 to 30. Im w/ Bayleef, Pidgeotto, Flaffy and Sandslash (Who's SERIOUSLY about to go if I dun get a good Ground move soon...). Can't wait til I get Fly, then I can really get serious in this game about training-since I already caught a few Dittos.

    Filling the Pokedex however, will be a chore.

    Actually, I think Falkner's loss of Mud-Slap may be the real factor here, 'cause my Dad told me he did very well in the Violet Gym in his "HeartGold" game with Geodude.

    Anyhow...

    Phew, thank goodness I'm not the only one!

    Yesterday, I reached Azalea Town and routed Team Rocket at the Slowpoke Well.

    I asked my Dad how far along he is, and he told me he's just reached the next big city (Goldenrod).

    I looked up Sandslash on Bulbapedia, and according to them, the only damaging Ground-type move Sandslash can naturally learn is Sand Tomb.

    Sorry!

    As long as you're talking teams, I have Totodile, Pidgey, Beedrill, Mareep, and Geodude still. I plan on catching an Oddish soon to fill my Grass-type needs until I can get Eevee from Bill (which I plan on trading to my "Platinum" game long enough to turn it into a Leafeon).

    My current team is: Dragonite, Crobat, Golem, Ampharos, Houndoom, and Feraligatr. Currently training them up to fight Red. May go legendary hunting in the meantime, but I'm gonna need some more fastballs from Kurt before I go after Entei, Raikou, and Latios. I currently have Kurt making me 12. Which reminds me, I added a page for HG/SS's apricorns. Specific locations, which ball Kurt makes from them, and Pokéathlon effects are all in there.

    The most important things that happened to me as I played over the weekend:

    (1) Mareep evolved into Flaafy. (My Team's still the same as the last time I posted otherwise.)

    (2) I beat Bugsy and Co. at the Azalea Gym.

    (3) I beat the rival (his Bayleef was a pain in the butt ).

    (4) I got through Ilex Forest.

    (5) I reached Goldenrod City.

    I just got my games Sunday, and somehow I was able to beat Falkner, although I never really should have lol. My starter was Chikorita, and he was level 14, and even though I poisoned Falkner's Pidgeotto, Razor Leaf and Tackle weren't doing much since he kept using Roost and healing himself. So yeah, I was on my way to losing and then he just stopped using Roost for some reason, and he wiped out 5 out of my 6 Pokemon before Pidgeotto fainted from the poisoning. This was after the exciting fight with the elder at the Sprout Tower which I ended up getting into a staredown with my Metapod and his Bellsprout which ended up with his Bellsprout fainting from using Struggle when all of his PP ran out. lol

    I'm gonna level him up in Union Cave for awhile.

    I got Silver today!

    I beat Faulkner pretty easily. Waiting for my bud Tony to get online so he can help me trade over my eggs from Pearl to Silver so I can continue to play!

    It's ok so far, not great, but not bad.
