“Pokemon Gold” is one of the second-generation Pokémon games released for the Game Boy Color. It was paired with “Pokemon Silver” and, in Japan, “Pokemon Crystal” was later released as an enhanced version of these games. Here are some highlights and features about “Pokemon Gold”:

  • New Region and Pokemon: The game introduced the Johto region and brought with it 100 new Pokémon, bringing the total count to 251.
  • Day/Night Cycle: One of the groundbreaking features was the introduction of a real-time day/night cycle, which affected gameplay. Certain Pokémon could only be caught during specific times of the day.
  • In-Game Clock: The game featured an internal clock that kept track of time.
  • Breeding: The Pokémon breeding system was introduced, where players could leave two Pokémon in the daycare and they might produce an Egg, which would hatch into a Pokémon.
  • PokéGear: This new device acted as a cell phone, radio, and map. Players could receive calls from NPCs (like trainers wanting a rematch) or tune into different radio stations.
  • Battle Tower: Introduced in “Crystal”, this was a place for high-level battling.
  • Return to Kanto: After completing the Johto region, players could travel back to the Kanto region from the first-generation games and challenge its Gym Leaders, making it one of the most extensive Pokémon adventures.
  • Legendary Pokémon: Pokémon Gold featured Ho-Oh as its box legendary, while Silver had Lugia. Both could be caught in each game, but at different levels and times.
  • Special Pokémon Evolutions: Some Pokémon, like Eevee evolving into Espeon or Umbreon, depended on the time of day and their happiness level.
  • Apricorn Balls: Players could collect Apricorns and turn them into special Poké Balls.
  • Improved Graphics and Sound: Compared to the first generation, the graphics and soundtracks were vastly improved.
  • Battle Animations: Pokémon had individualized battle animations when they entered the fight.

“Pokemon Gold” and “Silver” were later remade for the Nintendo DS as “Pokemon HeartGold” and “Pokemon SoulSilver” with enhanced graphics, added features from later generations, and the inclusion of the Pokéwalker accessory.

The games are beloved by fans for their rich content, introduction of many now-iconic Pokémon, and the ability to explore two full regions.
