The battery in the cart is probably dead and is likely the reason you can't save. The game did come out about 12 years ago after all.
You're right. I just wish I had a chance to play it before the battery died.
I don't play this any more because I've been busy with developing Pokémon: Liquid Crystal which is a Crystal remake for the GBA - I've been working on it for the past five years. I just wasn't entirely happy with HG/SS - I was super let down by the music and redesign of the maps and things.
Wow, that looks really cool. I'll have to give it a try soon.
I loved Gold and Silver, I'm mad enough to say that I liked them more to Red, Blue & Yellow. Just for the fact that I liked how it evolved, I remember reading a kids magazine when I was younger that had exclusive details on Gold and Silver, and it showed pictures of Day and Night, and I was blown away. I don't think the jump from GS/C -> RS/E could compete, I just loved every aspect of it, and you could revisit Kanto, track down the legendaries while they run around Jhoto, and waking up early just to catch some pokemons that would appear at Dawn, it was just so good.
I'm thinking about playing this, I've not had the chance to but it can't be that bad of a re-make. Sure Red and Blue introduced me to pokemon, but gold and silver just made me love the way pokemon evolved as a game, and in advance when they took out some of these elements, I was sad and didn't like the newly introduced pokemon. Long live the 1st and 2nd gen.
Me too. The first Pokemon game I played was Yellow and later on, I completed Red and Blue. But once I got Gold version, I couldn't put it down. To this day, it's still my favourite Pokemon game. I bought Sapphire for my GBA SP and it took me awhile to complete it. At first, I liked the improved graphics and the legendary Pokemon but that wasn't enough to keep me interested. The more I played, the more I realized I didn't really like it. I gave Black version a try and didn't like it either. I prefer the graphics of HeartGold over the excessive "3Dness" of Black.
