Pokémon Heart Gold & Soul Silver Video And Screenshots Captured


Here is is, just like promised…the official official Pokémon Gold/Silver remake announcement. There isn’t much footage of the new game unfortunately. Just some walking around in New Bark Town and a few measly screenshots.


Again, further details are expected in this coming week’s CoroCoro and Nintendo Dream.


Something to note: the footage and screenshots show Chikorita following you around in New Bark. Does this imply that the starters are able to follow the trainer right from the start of the game a la Pokémon Yellow? There’s also a rumour making the rounds that Heart Gold and Soul Silver will feature a more in-depth breeding system by which the looks of newly-hatched Pokémon will vary slightly depending on who the parents were.


I wonder what else we can expect to see in the remakes. I guess now’s as good a time as any to start speculating!
