The latest Pokemon game is the walk and talk about town! Check out our review to see how far you should go for this remake!

Pokemon Gold and Silver originally came out in 2000 to follow up on the success of Pokemon Red and Blue. This was the second generation of Pokemon (Diamond/Pearl/Platinum is the fourth). However, Red and Blue got an awesome remake with FireRed and LeafGreen in 2004 and now Gold and Silver gets one too!


What's New?

Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver upgrades the original with new graphics and sounds. Menus and other gameplay mechanics have been improved and it also adds in the ability to trade on Wi-Fi and to trade with the fourth generation pokemon games.


The game also comes with an accessory called the PokeWalker that converts your walking and running steps in real life into experience for your pokemon and other presents in the game!


Oldie but Goodie

Gold and Silver were perhaps the best Pokemon game in the series, being the first to introduce the night and day effect, pokemon breeding and egg hatching, and the PokeGear. It also features not only the eight badges of the Johto region, but also the eight original badges of the Kanto region from Red and Blue!


HeartGold and SoulSilver does well to keep everything that made the original so great, including the ability to catch both Lugia and Ho-Oh and to fight Ash and Gary in the second half of the game after beating the Elite Four.


A Good Catch

If you have never played Gold and Silver, now is the time to catch up and see what you have been missing! HeartGold and SoulSilver is a solid game that is practically twice as long as any other pokemon game. It also gives you the chance to catch some of the pokemon that have been out of reach so that you can really catch 'em all!
