i mean, johto has always been best, no one can deny that. the pokewalker was beast, the gym leaders were more challenging, like how the pokemon follow you around, the legendaries were beast, i mean, you can capture zapdos, articuno, and moltres! amazing. u can get mewtwo, and also, i got arceus from my action replay from my pokemon pearl, and i sent it over, went to the ruins of alph, and this guy took me to some ruins, saw cynthia, and got dialga!! used him for the rest of the game. best thing after that, refighting your rival at the pokemon league on mondays and wednesdays, and the double battle with your rival against clair and lance? wat is that?!?! it was a frickin awesome idea! rematches against the gym leaders? omg. and re-doing the elite four when they have higher levels was great too. because in past games when your pokemon are lvl 80 and theirs are lvl 50, it gets a little boring. second time, they're lvl 60 to 70. just grand.
mini games were cool too. kinda pointless tho.
10/10 man. amazing

When I heard they were making a remake of Silver and Gold, I fliped! I have always loved the Johto series the most, but my orginal stopped working correctly. So I quickly reserved it at Gamestop.

Anyway, the game is a lot like the orginal but deftianley better graphics and sound. I espically noticed the differences in the water. It looks more natural plus the sound of the water fades in and out as you approuch it. The story is still pretty much the same but a few minor changes here and there. Like the Komono girl...I don't recall her in the orginal. But it's been years since I played it.

Oh, the mini-games are pretty cool and fun. I espcially like the chopping blocks one. The Pokewalker is awesome! I'm a person that likes to take 40 minute walks a day, so it's nice that I can take a Pokemon along with me!

So if you are a true hardcore Pokemanic, buy this game!

Great game they just need more trainers to train on and make the elite four a bit eisier. You can explore Kanto along with jhoto!
