Wonderful New Features and stronger trainers!,
This review is from: Pokemon, Silver Version (Video Game)
I was absolutely dying of the anticipation for Pokemon Gold and Silver. I had played by Pokemon Red game to extinction, and I was so terribly bored with it. Where's the challenge? I can get all the master balls I want, and rare candy is a cinch.
But with Pokemon Gold, everything changes. I love the feature that keeps real time. Sometimes when I forget to wear my watch, I just flip on my Game Boy and I know what time it is. The new Pokemon pose threats to pokemon that once seemed invincible, like the psychic types. The dark and steel pokemon are powerful newcomers, so watch out!
The end of the game was a complete surprise to me. They let you travel back to "Kanto", or the old world where Ash and Gary started out. It's nice to see Brock's pokemon are stronger, and Misty's evolved that Psyduck of hers. As always, Gary is a tough opponent, but nothing like Ash.
<SPOILER> Be careful of Ash's Snorlax. It seems like he's forever sleeping and recovering all of his hit points. The rest are easy; Pikachu is weak, even at level 81. The Charizard, Blastoise, and Venusaur are easy; just use type advantages against them. The Umbreon may take some work as Ash loves to use Sand Attack and mess up your accuracy.
