I wanted to play every single Pokemon game, and catch tons of Pokemon, to move them to the next game, so I can at least try and catch them all. I was gonna start with Fire Red, but no one had it for sale, and I coincidentally found Heartgold for like $20 at the peddler in the mall. Well, after beating it, I realized I can get to Kanto. What I want to know is, for someone like me, who is wanting to beat all the game play and transfer all my Johto and Kanto Pokemon to my my Alpha Sapphire game, is beating Kanto in Heartgold all the same?
1-Does Kanto in Heart Gold have all the same stories and game play that you would have in R/B/Y?
2-Recommendation, would you play Kanto in Fire Red, or in Heartgold?!?
3-If I do play Fire Red, is it easy to transfer my Pokemon to Heartgold or Alpha Sapphire?!
4-What are the major differences? For some reason, nowhere has any info, even though it seems like a great question.
*I get I can do the gym leaders from the 8 cities and catch the same Pokemon, but I am wondering if this is 100% the same (minus being Ash and starting in Pallet with a charmander, squirtle, or bulbasaur, and rearranged for my new character to start in Vermilion).
As much as I am focused on Pokemon and badges, I really want to play story lines to get from gym to gym, face my nemesis, and do things like the Snorlax, Caves, and mystery things?!? Like is all that type of stuff in there, including Mewtwo? I mean does it play out like it would in Fire Red?
