Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!
Just did a second playthrough of LeafGreen around two weeks ago and Platinum a few days ago and am currently on my second playthrough of HeartGold. That being said, definitely go with HG/SS, since they retained the awesome memories of G/S/C as well as bringing in cool things like prominent visuals (a la Platinum), the Pokeathlon (which will always shit all over contests) and the physical / special split (the latter of which had, up to that point, been the most influential mechanic of the series since Gen. II introduced breeding, daytime / nighttime and friendship).
