Anything in HGSS make you angry/confused?

except Jynx. I still think the purple skin was a bad idea...i liked it better when it looked like a female Mr. Popo...but i digress...
agreed, when i was a kid i really didnt think of it as a racial stereotype. hell i still dont (which is odd because i often make a ton of racist jokes [no im not racist]). anyways changing her to purple is just retarted, hell if they made a white stereotype (oh wait thats snorlax) i honestly wouldnt give a ****. but anyways when DID jynx go purple?

Jynx is a discrase to pkmn. those huge lips.... the.. purple... mm
*cough* nvm. but really one thing that bugs me is how the the safari zone has awesome pokemon, but you have to catch them in a weird man vs. monster kinda format. ;\ its so annoying.

Yeah so much for not walking in too grass because of wild pokemon - the safari zone practically has you punching wild pokemon >.>

Another thing that makes me.. angry I suppose... I was expecting a fully gold cartridge D:
I suppose thats not really annoying at all though.

They didn't do it with any of the three Sinnoh titles, which should have been your first indication. And beyond that, not only are DS game cards made of so little plastic relative to Game Boy and Game Boy Advance cartridges, but they disappear almost completely inside your DS when being played. I wager there was simply no value in rolling out the colored plastic for so little.

Lvl 50 Rayquaza took 3 dusk balls to catch..... a lvl 8 venomoth (how is this possible??? ) took 7 dusk balls to catch... I'm confused

You may have noticed that the cartridge is black while most DS cartridges are grey. I do believe that it had to be black because of the infra-red waves needed to connect to the pokewalker which is not done by the normal wireless function of the DS.

The infrared transceiver is built into the game card (look closely at the top of your HG/SS card, it's the tiny glossy spot) and in and of itself, doesn't have anything to do with the color of the card's plastic, but that's a good point, that it's possible that the manufacturing for the infrared game cards was already in place from the first game that used the functionality and it would have been a needless hassle to change the process to use colored plastic.

I noticed the black cartridge, but not the infrared bar. Thanks to both of you for your in-depth descriptions of the cartride's colour :)

Yes! Wait... No.
I think...
Jynx shoudla been black. :/ I don't often see it purple.
I was hoping for the gift egg from the day-care in Crystal to be existant. That woulda rocked.
And Latias was too easy to catch. It took me one quick ball. It should have been higher leveled, despite R/S/E.

How people require specific times of day on the day they want a rematch. I've had to play with the clock to rematch Pryce, Surge, Misty etc. I wish that instead there were just three people per day, with no restrictions.

Oh well, it's easily sorted. I still don't have Blue's number, though. I'm too lazy!

<-- my *****
The last shiny leaf...
Found 4 on my Rhyperior within an hour and thought wtf? And now it's been almost 3 days and I can't find one ever, feels bad man ;_;
Edit: haha found it! now that I've got that out of the way I guess I'll go fight Red or something.

When I first got the game, I was confused because there was no color in the HP bar but the Pokemon still lived. Then I realized it happens when they have one HP so now I never figure out if I defeat the pokemon or not til I hear the cry.

I also hate that in order to get Leafeon and Glacion, along with the pokemon like magnezone, you must trade pokemon over to DPt to evolve them. There should have been spots in Jhoto or Kanto added to evolve them.

The 1 thing I hated about these games above everything else was the lack of the Vs. Seeker. I was going to make SS my main game because I love Johto and the Following Feature, but without the Vs. Seeker, EV training and farming money takes forever. So now Platinum is my main game.
 
Just the fact that the Pokemon in the wild are still low-leveled, making it hard to train. But other than that, I have no complaints. :)

i wanna like this game so much but it feels so hollow compared to D/P/P series and the lack of the following bothers me quite a bit, vs seeker,pkmn contest,lack of pkmn variety,no casino or roulette, no helpful phone apps, and no feature to disable phone calls D:< this bothers me the most since if you decide to collect phone numbers they call you every 5 minutes and you cant delete them ether DX

HGSS have a good variety of pokemon, even in the Johto Dex.
instead of contests, you should try Pokeathlon
there is Casino, but with the Voltorb game instead of roulette
i hate how you cant delete phone numbers tho -.-

I need to agree, lack of VS seeker and pokeradar got me really mad though

Ice Caves could have been for Glaceon, Ilex Forest for Leafeon and Mt Coronet for Mt Moon or Tohjo Falls or Mt Silver.

The Gym rematches, it is so annoying to try and remember when the times/days are to get their phone numbers. Between 6-8 I am not going to remember to grab Clair's phone number and even 9-10 I don't think about it,.

Agreed, having certain Pokemon only able to evolve in certain areas of Sinnoh was bad enough, but not including similar areas in following games is ridiculous, especially if you want to use HG/SS as your main game.

Hey im not 100% sure about this, but in the original versions, could you decorate your room? For some reason I can remember this, but I may be mistaken. If this is true then im annoyed that they took it out of the new remakes.
