...And speaking of Soul Silver, I cleared my Leaf Green Nuzlocke yesterday and have gotten started ever so slightly on Soul Silver myself. Though it'll still be a few days before ppls get to see that as I still have two more episodes of Leaf Green that must be uploaded first. But yeah, my "Clear every region from Kanto to Unova x2" challenge has officially entered its second stage.
Spoilerz! It's been surprisingly fun to watch the Leaf Green LP. I think I'm (at least almost) up to date with it - the last thing I saw was you not catching a Ponyta despite it being quite likely. Not sure if I'll keep watching after this since I haven't played Soul Silver or any later games myself. Most of your LG LP at least was quite clearly aimed at people who already know a lot of stuff, at least what type gym is next and which pokemon are good and bad at different things, e.g. things like "Though I obviously won't be using THAT much in the next gym" - I know why a Magneton is useless in Cinnabar, but won't get equivalent statements about later gens so much. Maybe I can still remember small amounts of stuff about gens 2 and 3 since I did play them a very long time ago but nowhere near as much as 1.
That said, this was my first time seeing the Gen 2 remakes. The 3D-ness of the buildings and stuff I find quite... jarring. Having a pokemon follow you on the map is super awesome though.
Oh and also, I noticed you hadn't been watching this series. How? Because I haven't gotten a single Facebook-message from cala complaining about how I'm too good at the game ever since I started Soul Silver!
We might still catch up some day. At which point you can look forward to more messages complaining that not enough stuff dies. Bonus points for the fact that if this happens it will be weeks/months after you actually played the part we complain about and you probably won't remember exactly what is being referred to.I might also actually play HG or SS myself in the not too distant future, and might even try doing a Nuzlocke if I feel adventurous at the time. I don't remember much about Gen 2 for now (ie : what gym types there are or what order they are in for the most part) as I haven't played anything since GSC as a kid, so it would be semi-blind. If this happens I'll probably watch this LP semi-concurrently or just after I play through and compare stuff.
