Gold/Silver - Preview
Pokemon Gold and Silver are continuations of Green, Yellow, Red, Blue. In these versions you will have a new places to explore, and there are 250 Pokemon. You can still swap the Gold and Silver Pokemon with Red/Blue cartridges, however, the new Pokemon won't work in the Red/Blue cartridge. For example, there is an evolved form of Slowbro in the Gold game. If you trade it to a Blue cartridge, it would be a Slowbro instead of the evolved form. It gets "downgraded."
There are different sexes for each Pokemon, like the Nidoran from Red/Blue. This means breeding! You can also cross breed and produce variations. Another new feature is the concept of time. The game will have a timer so there will be nocturnal Pokemon who are only active during the night and you probably have to wait for some pokemon to wake up...... now that's cool! There will also be a skateboard now as a mode of transportation. Nintendo is also taking the time to make this game in of color to take advantage of the Gameboy Color.
