LOL, HG/SS defeated God of War 3. And I'm loving the game; what a great remake of an already fantastic game (G&S).

Also, each game has their own legendary pokemon to try and catch. That's the big difference between the games, really.
Message | Report
themanwithnoname posted 19/10/2009, 06:14

Pretty much, the only differences as far as I can tell are that each version has like 15 pokemon exclusive to that version that can't be found on the other version. If you look, you can find the list somewhere. Anywho, hope I helped.

With the Japanese update in sales, I believe they just broke 2.5m in Japanese sales alone. This is why Pokemon is now challenging Mario for highest selling franchise ever.

What? 2.3 million with Japanese numbers alone? :o

Making a game with Pokémon in the name is a guaranteed hit. Nintendo could survive and make a healthy profit on this franchise alone. :p

They got their sums wrong, 1,446,090 plus 459,541 does not make 1.45 million, about 1.89 million it should be.

Soooooooo, I was watching The Pokémon games sales and I noticed that this is the only mainline game that is classified as Action, is there any particular reason or is it just been classified wrong ?
