I'm going to go ahead and ask the audience...

So... over the weekend I've managed to scrounge together $40 to buy a new DS game while still managing to keep all of the money I have saved up for the summer, and when I say scrounge, I mean scrooounge. I'm spending my $10 in $2 bills that I vowed never to spend, I'm spending my lucky $5 bill with a goatee and angry eyebrows drawn on Lincoln (that's how it was when I got it), I found $7 in the back pocket of a pair of my jeans, $3 in quarters, and I'm still having to borrow some money from my mom. The only reason I'm going through so much trouble for a DS game is that there's a huge* Pokemon tournament going on at my school (I wasn't even aware that it was going on until two weeks in), and I want in (but I damn well want to make sure I spend my money well).

*By huge I don't mean just the resident nerds like most people would stereotype. Almost all of the guys in our grade are in on it. Just Thrusday my friend and I had a two-on-two battle with two guys from the varsity basketball team.

I have Pearl, but everyone else has HeartGold and SoulSilver, and they're all encouraging me to buy one of them. So, I'm here to ask you Bulbagardeners. Which one should I buy? HeartGold? SoulSilver? Does it depend on the version exclusives (if any), or should I go with Platinum? Hell, should I even spend the money? Or buy a non-Pokemon related game instead? I leave it all up to you, BMGfers (that way instead of buyer's remorse I'll have trust remorse).

    Yeah, I don't really want to spend my 2's, so I'll hold out on someone lending me a few more dollars.

    And that really sucks considering I have Kyogre and Lugia. If I do buy one of them, I think I'm gonna go with HG for Ho-Oh and get Groudon from somewhere else.

    I surely wouldn't spend the 2's, actually why are you in such a rush? You could just use Pearl for this and then get HG later.

    Normally I wouldn't be in a rush like this. I'm really not in too much of a rush anyway. I wasn't even planning on ever getting HG or SS, but the school year's about to end and I figured it might be cool if I joined in. The reason I was thinking about getting a whole new game instead of using Pearl is that no one wants to go up against me. All of my guys are higher levels, and most of the people in the "tournament" just barely bought their games not too long ago.

    You got Groudon and Kyogre right, but Lugia and Ho-Oh are both in HG and SS. Also, Latios is in SS, Latias in HG, and the other one can be obtained in each via event later.
