I'll only be playing 4th gen to RNG a few odd things and whenever I feel like experiencing what it offers. That said, I haven't seriously sat down and played my HG in a few months. I started over on Pearl though to RNG legends.........which I also have not played recently >.>
Yup! I am new to Pokémon (only been playing it since Easter or so), and just got Soulsilver for my Birthday about two weeks or so ago... I am in LOVE with this game! I got a Cyndaquil as my starter, which I lovingly nicknamed "Flame", and it is just so much fun seeing them walk with you! I also love "walking my Pokémon in the real world by using the Pokewalker! I think it is a awesome device! Haha!
I doubt you would lost the paths you got by replacing the battery... the battery was going to die sooner or later, and if replacing it gets rid of all your data, than that is just not cool... but I seriously doubt anything like that would happen, lol, so I don't think you need to worry too much. XP
I have a 3DS and Platinum, Soul Silver, White, and Black 2. Soul Silver is the one I play the most. I like to use it for different challenges (Solo, Nuzlocke, Monotype) and trade any good Pokemon I cant bear to lose over to Platinum before restarting.
I have DS Lite and 3DS. I have Soul Silver, restarted a month ago, Black and White 2. I am searching desperately for Kyogre or/and Rayquaza for Soul Silver and Dialga for White 2 cuz I'm trying to complete pokedex. I'm sorry if I posted in wrong place but I'm new here.
I would be veery glad and thankful for someone who could trade them with me.
