Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver: Gold and Silver gets a Makeover!


From the success of the Pokemon Gold and Silver Franchise for the Gameboy, the company gave it a makeover and stuffed it up with more awesome features that GB players will surely have a different feeling when playing this version. My prediction was right! I've always thought that this version will have its remake (considering that the previous versions had theirs as well).

Heartgold/Soulsilver retells the story of Johto and starts up in an area being New Bark Town, the overall plot follows the same direction as the original Gold and Silver.


Like FireRed and LeafGreen could link up with Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald to complete the Pokédex by trading regionally exclusive Pokémon, HeartGold and SoulSilver can link up with Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum to obtain Pokémon unavailable in Johto and Kanto, such as the Sinnoh starters.

Like the GBA Wireless Adapter that came with FireRed and LeafGreen, a bonus is included with the purchase of HeartGold and SoulSilver: a Poké Ball-shaped pedometer called the Pokéwalker that has the capacity to link to the two games and hold a Pokémon. Storing a Pokémon in this manner increases its experience and happiness as the wearer walks. Other Pokémon can be captured in exclusive Pokéwalker-only areas and then transferred to the main game.


There are so many changes from Gold and Silver (which can be found here) so I'll just put the good ones:

  • Gym Leaders, Elite Four members, Silver, and Red have animated battle sprites and battle intros, as in Platinum. Many Gyms have been redesigned as well, some with new puzzles.

  • Ambient sound effects are used with greater frequency than in previous games; for example, running water, blowing wind and the player walking through grass will produce audible noises.

  • All 493 Pokémon are capable of following players similar to Pikachu in Yellow. Shininess is also retained. The player can interact with their Pokémon by pressing 'A', and can see how their Pokémon is feeling at the moment. In battle, like Yellow's Pikachu, they are sent out from the side of the screen, rather than from a Poké Ball, unless in certain situations, such as while riding the bicycle, surfing, or going indoors with a large Pokémon.

  • A new sidequest, the Pokéathlon, features ten mini-games that pit Pokémon in athletic competitions. Its system appears to be analogous to that of Contests from previous games.


And of course you maybe asking if there's now a ROM of these games. The answer would be a yes! but I wouldn't post it in here. But you could inform me if you want to have a Working English ROM for HeartGold.

Leave some Comment Love people!! Thanks!
