    I can't really choose anything, because I buy the primary version when each generation starts, and then the tertiary version when it comes later on (eg. Diamond then Platinum, and soon, Black then Grey). Though I didn't do it with Gen III as me and my brother started in mid- Gen III so we never got RS but we got LG and E.

    I usually just get either the Primary or the Secondary version (doesn't really matter which one to me) and then the Tertiary.

    I buy all 3. my habit is I buy both First and Secondary versions and then Third Version, because I like to collect the games and have all 3 so I can trade between them and have more games to hoard event Pokemon with.

    Voted for doesn't really matter, because that's where I'm leaning now. Before, I always got the third version, but now I'm impatient, so I snatched up Pearl & Platinum, & I've got White and I'll be getting the third version.

    Third is officially my tradition now. My first game was Yellow, a gift from a cousin, then one of my friends traded his Crystal game for some of my gb games. Afterwards I wanted to try out genIII and only managed to find Emerald, then I bought Platinum as it looked coolest, and thus I am still waiting....

    I voted secondary because the ones I played through first in each generation were the "secondaries". I'd never thought of them as primary/secondary before. Plus I say them in the wrong order.

    I originally played Red, then Silver, Sapphire, Platinum, SoulSilver, Black. My younger brother always played the "primary" title up until generation 3. But since then I have a copy of every game but yellow. My Silver only works sometimes, and my all my copies of generation 3 games can no longer keep track of days that pass.

    I choose one of the first two versions solely based on exclusives,and then,if I like the improvements in the third version,I get that one too.

    I buy all three. It gives me a lot more room to work with (I have nearly 14 boxes of rescues on Black!) and it also helps me nab more event 'Mons if they're released in the states.

    I always get primary and tertiary. Obviously once all are out, the tertiary generally has little reason to be ignored other than possibly missing version exclusives.

    I usually prefer the "second" version because it is the colour I prefer, but sometimes I choose the other version. To make things clear, I choose the "second" version for the odd Gens, and the "first" for the even Gens. It makes trying out the "third" version meaningful because I get to see the differences, since the "first" and "second" are usually very similar compared to the "third" one. With that, I will work with whatever version exclusives I get, since it's not every time the version I prefer has the Pokemon, like Misdreavus in Generation 4 (they are Pearl-exclusive).

    Thanks for reading.

    It depends on the version exclusives (for example, I bought Diamond due to the fact that I liked the version exclusives better than Pearl's exclusives). I also buy the tertiary version due to the new features, content, etc.

    I actually get all of the versions; the primary and secondary version for the utility of two games and the third versions for new features. I suppose I just like to have the whole cake and eat it :p

    I have selected "Doesn't really matter - depends on version exclusives". I normally get one of the paired versions and then the tertiary versions and I seem to mainly get the secondary versions because the only primary versions I have are Red and Black.
