    Well, I think Ethan IS Gold. The only character that was changed was Kris. Kris and Lyra seem to be totally different characters. Why they didn't use Kris though, is an utter mystery to me.

    I guess so. Why would they change this stuff?

    uuum Ethan is clearly Gold. And he is confirmed to be Gold. only kris changed into lyra, but the others just got a redesign. I think they still look almost the same but cooler and better artwork, cuz silver's old artwork is pretty ugly imo

    It's a remake, of course they changed the character designs. And Silver is a character you choose the name for. -_-
    IDK about Crystal and Lyra.

    I do not find it strange, as it IS a remake.

    I don't find it strange at all. However I do find Lyra to be ridiculous looking with her Mushroom hat.

    Ethan looks just like Gold. Lyra and Kris are the only changes.

    The only thing that surprised me in HG/SS about the characters was that Lyra was her own unique character and not just a redesign of Crystal. Ethan is Gold which is sort of obvious, Silver is Silver of course, but Lyra isn't Crystal. Yeah they look a lot alike but they aren't the same character. I don't know if I think that's a problem but I'm still trying to wrap my head around that. I'd also like to know why Gold was given the name Ethan in the English versions though. It doesn't sound much like "echo" to me :x

    I don't understand though. Isn't that more of a reason to find it strange? Since HG and SS are remakes of G/S/C, then it would make sense to keep characters like Kris in these games. That wasn't the case however, as they replaced her with Lyra. That's one of the things that people find strange about these games. I don't blame people either since I was also looking forward to playing as Kris in these games, but was stuck with Lyra and her freaky hat instead.

    Okay, lets think about this.

    Kris is short and representative of "Crystal". She has blue hair, eyes, and accessories, representative of "Crystal". She was introduced in the third version, Pokemon Crystal.

    So why on Earth would remakes of Pokemon Gold and Silver include a character that clearly represents Pokemon Crystal?

    I've always thought of HG/SS as remakes of G/S/C, probably because HG/SS contains many aspects from Pokemon Crystal. Eusine wasn't in G/S, but he was in Crystal. That carried over to HG/SS. So did some of the stuff exclusive to Crystal like the Blue Card and the Clear Bell, the Dragon's Den Dragon User Clan quest, and some other stuff I might have forgotten. I don't see why it would have been impossible to include Kris in HG/SS since they went ahead and added so many other Crystal aspects into HG/SS. I'm just throwing that out there :/

    Good point though. I haven't actually played G/S/C so...I didn't know what was new...but now I do.

    As to why they switched Kris with Lyra...I have no idea. Lyra's sprite when walking about creeps me out.

    No, HeartGold and SoulSilver is not a remake of Crystal. All of the extra stuff added in the third version was added because they didn't have time to put it in Gold and Silver, thats how they make the third versions, according to Masuda anyway. But the Crystal character was made within side the theme of the Crystal, not the theme of Gold and Silver, thus brining her back would be silly. If you all dislike it, just pretend its Kris wearing another outfit (as is the case in Pokemon Special) and name her Kris. *shrugs*
