I’ve started my next Pokemon journey for my Pokemon Playthrough.
I’m now traveling through the Johto region, but not without a few hiccups along the way.
I wanted to play through all the regions in order to “prepare” myself for Pokemon Sun and Moon to come out.
I played through Pokemon Blue in June and it ended up taking me a lot longer than expected.
I wanted to continue this journey through the ages of Pokemon by playing the original games. I was able to play Blue because I downloaded it through the virtual console on the Nintendo 3DS’s eshop, even though I do have a physical copy of Blue.
I wanted to play my physical copy of Crystal, but… That didn’t work out as well as I hoped it would.
The save file and memory wouldn’t work anymore. I tried my copies of Gold and Silver and they didn’t work, either. I’m sure you can imagine that I was pretty upset by this.
So, long story short, I figured I had to play through HeartGold or SoulSilver. When I turned on both games I realized that I had already played and beaten both of them.
I was much farther along on HeartGold than I was on SoulSilver, so I decided to start SoulSilver over.
Thus, I’m going through the Johto region with my SoulSilver game.
Just like when I played Pokemon Blue, I forgot about my deadline until it was staring me in the face. So I just started playing the game a few days ago. In other words, I’m not very far in it.
I do have two gym badges, though. I’m getting there. I’m a lot farther along at this point than I was in Pokemon Blue.
There’s not so much grinding this time around, so I’m able to move through the story quicker. Plus, I’ve played the game before.
Oh, and I have the running shoes. Those things are a life saver!
Are you playing through the old Pokemon games? Which region is your favorite?
