VIRTUAL CONSOLE - NEXT POKEMON GAMES ON 3DS: Pokemon Gold, Silver, Crystal!
Nintendo released the original Pokémon games, Red, Blue, and Yellow Versions, on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console earlier this year, and its success is starting a path of re-releases we’ve been waiting for!
The series’ developer Game Freak recently stated they didn’t have any similar plans for the games’ follow-ups, Gold, Silver, and Crystal. But for the Nintendo 3DS which is being outshine by the success of Nintendo Switch, it’s the only way to go.
“This will surely keep the 3DS alive.”
Virtual Console Pokémon GOLD, SILVER, and CRYSTAL are the only way to transfer old Pokémon from those games to SUN and MOON.
“I think the remakes, like Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen, is still an approach we’re interested in,” Masuda told IGN. “With the Virtual Console releases of the original games, specifically there had never been a way to bring those Pokemon over to the latest generation. It had always been that you couldn’t get those Pokemon out.
Masuda explained that services like Pokemon Bank and the Poke
Transporter finally gave the developers an option to release the
original versions on Virtual Console, essentially letting people upload
first generation into the new game.
Silver: Arms not extended out for a hug, but instead on her face to extenuate her cuteness. Not sure which one I like better 8/10
Crystal: Less round, more like the shape she is today and also LOOK AT HER SHE’S SO GOOD AAAAAAA. She’s supposed to animate, if she’s not for you just trust me, it’s really cute. 11/10
Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald/FireRed/LeafGreen: This sprite is the start of her tilting to the side. This goes on for many years. Not sure why, but I hope she’s okay. Also more advanced graphics allow her to be a softer pink. I like this. She waves hello. 9/10
Diamond/Pearl: Again with the tilting. She probably thinks she looks cute. She is right. 9/10
Platinum: Her back hurt from all the tilting. She is happy because she can be comfortable again. The smile really puts it over the edge. 10/10
HeartGold/SoulSilver: Even more soft pink, though only slightly. This pleases me. I would give her any amount of money she asked for. Please animate Cleffa more often. 11/10
Black/White/Black 2/White 2: Step, step, ear wiggle. Not sure if those are ears, but they are cute. Thank you for animating her more. 12/10
X/Y/ORAS/Sun/Moon: I love her dance. Animation is simple. 10/10
BONUS: SHINY CLEFFA
A good, nice pink and green which is my favorite color. She deserves to be rare and I hope she lives a long happy life. Everything/10
Since there’s a lot of people here who might need it; and the only kind of music I know to be calming tends to be game music, here’s some nice music.
Just note: not all can be classed as ‘calm’ but some can be classed as ‘happy’, as up-tune beats could perhaps make people feel better as well. (All have warnings if they apply.)
Also if anybody needs to see this as a sign to not kill themselves, then this is it. Please do not hurt yourself or kill yourself! Fight through this life with us, yeah? This is for everybody to enjoy. I mean everybody.
There’s a ton of songs on here and it took quite a while to compile them. Like. Hours. And Hours. Of my time, and other peoples time.
Thank you to all those whom supported the creation of this master post! All are tagged next to their songs/playlists/recommendations! All help that anybody gave me is so, so, so appreciated.
Please do not be shy to add any more to this list. It is appreciated, very, very appreciated.
Had to be cut under “read more” due to the largeness of this post. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
