SoulSilver was so much fun for me and my fellow pokemates (cheesy, I know).  Nintendo did a great job bringing back probably the best pokemon game ever.   The updated graphics and fun gear items made this a worthy to buy game.  It's also fun to try and collect the multitude of legendary and rare pokemon in the vast game after you've completely the game and defeated the Elite Four several times over.  Overall, this game is well made and solid, and will set the bar for innovation in pokemon games to come.
