Nintendo has officially confirmed re-makes of the Generation 2 games, Pokemon Gold and Silver. The re-makes will be titled Pokemon HeartGold and Pokemon SoulSilver. They're expected to be out in Japan fall 2009, and internationally in early 2010.


I, for one, am estatic. This has been a long time coming.

I wonder what new stuff they'll put in them?

I'm still waiting for a game that includes all the known continents, the ultimate poke'manz game.

I don't think they've gone into detail just yet what, if any, new features there will be.

All I can say is it's about time.

I am happy to hear this news, I did not think they would make any more Pokemon games where you can be a trainer. I rather enjoyed beating both Gold and Silver. Do you think you will get both or just one, seeing as they're pretty much the same game with different Pokemon that can be caught.

I'll have to see the version exclusive pokemon before I decide which to get, but if they're the same as the originals then definitely Silver for Skarmory, Donphan and Ninetales.

Unlikely. There hasn't been a remake/third version yet that didn't take the original and add in some new feature or gimmick in addition to the current gen's features and gimmicks.

However, since NoJ has just announced it, there's nothing new to speak of.

10 years? No wonder I've aged.

I knew it. They've been talking about a possible remake for ages. I'll be in line to buy it when it first comes out.

It's no more silly than having a remake of games like Final Fantasy or Chrono Trigger years after they've gone out of print. The appeal, aside from "Best Pokemon Generation Ever with updated graphics and a more balanced game" there's also the added somethings they'll no-doubt stick in there. Then there's the kids who like Pokemon now but weren't around or old enough 10 years ago to play it.

The DS is the one console Nintendo actually remains somewhat receptive to its fans for. Then again, handhelds have always been a cesspool of casual games, so we're less likely to complain about having to sift through a wall of Bratz Puppyz Adventurez to find the Professor Laytons and TWEWYs out there.

I'm not enthused enough to pick up one of my sister's rotting DS's and buy this game. My hopes for the franchise died after the pile of suck that was the first generation remakes. The third generation was at least somewhat playable.

Mmmmmmmmmm
05-09-2009, 02:08 PM
I loved the second generation starters, and wild pokemon in general. I hope graphics and the speed of the game are 10x faster, though (not the story of the game). And hopefully they add 'modern' items/key items on these. Like one, running shoes (even though it's not considered item/key item).

My question is still, is this going to be fifth generation or fourth? They remade red and blue (firered and leafgreen) wich remained third generation and not coming out with fourth generation until D/P/P.

The Generations are dependant more on the system then anything. Although the Silver/Gold are apparently playable on normal Gameboys.

1st Red/Blue/Green (Yellow) - Gameboy/Gameboy Pocket
2nd Silver/Gold/Crystal - Gameboy Color
3rd Emerald/Sapphire/Ruby (LeafGreen/FireRed) - Gameboy Advance
4th Pearl/Diamond/Platinum (These new ones) - Gameboy DS

I don't know. The 1st gen pokemon will always be the best, but 2nd gen wasn't bad. It still had that children's fantasy sort of feel to it. It was the 3rd and 4th gen pokemon that all look like stylized robots.

I am going to have to agree with you.

While I am a long time fan of Pokemon, I can't help but not really care about any remakes they make, at least not right now.

Would I get those games for the 2nd-generation Pokemon? No, since I can still catch them now (its not like they disappeared once the other versions came out). Would I get it for the features that were in Gold and Silver? No, since, again, its not like I can't do the same thing in Diamond and Pearl; I think the only things they haven't revived yet would be the cell phone (I can imagine great things for that) and the radio.

I expect Nintendo to reveal more in the near future. Until then, I could care less.

So, as long as we are expressing our barely contained girly squeals of joy over Pokemon Gold and Silver we can post here?:rolleyes:

Sorry, but everyone is entitled to their opinion about these games and their upcoming remakes, as you are.

Well I won't be getting heartgold because I hate the name but I'll be getting Soulsilver because it sounds awesome, and I new they would make remakes eventually, I have been waiting to hear it confirmed though.

I'm constantly being reminded that I don't post much anymore and that no one knows me. It sucks.


I'm in a pickle, I really prefer silver over gold...but heart over soul....I guess so far I'm leaning towards Silversoul.

Buy both. I always say that I'll just buy one, or none at all, but when it gets down to it the super cool stylus that come with the game make me excited.

While this is rather exciting, I'm not sure I want to sit and play through Johto...AGAIN. I mean, I'm still struggling through Platinum and I've had my hands on that since September...not to mention I did Silver and Crystal back in the day.

That said, I adored the second-gen games and can't wait to see the trainer re-designs (if there are any). I loved Kenta and Marina :)

Depending on whether I make it back to Japan in November or not I'll see about making the decision to pick it up then. ...not sure of which color. I love Ho-oh and Lugia both, it's a hard pick!

I'm totally getting both. One will be a girl and the other will be a boy. And I'm gonna breed the starters like crazy but with pride. My favorite generation. I hope they have the Kanto gyms in it as well. And Team Rocket. :D

Reonic Flux
05-14-2009, 07:10 PM
Of course they will. Gold and Silver did have Kanto, so why won't they exclude them? I hope I can get the original three starters this time.

Im going to buy both, but I am also hoping that they remake crystal as well.
