Pokémon HeartGold Version is the DS remake of Pokemon Gold originally released for the Game Boy handheld in October 2000. While based on the Generation II titles, HeartGold together with SoulSilver form the last flagship releases for the Generation IV lineup of Game Freak's virtual pet franchise. HeartGold takes players to the Johto region where they will once again journey to battle and collect Pokemon in order to form a lineup capable of challenging the eight Gym Leaders and ultimately the Elite Four of the land.
Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver include all the Pokemon from the Game Boy and DS releases for a total of 493 Pokémon. Each version of the game features exclusive Pokemon, requiring players to trade with others who own another version in order to complete the in-game Pokedex. Like in the original Game Boy releaes, the player has the opportunity to travel back to the Kanto region in order the challenge the eight Gym Leaders of that area as well
