9.0

Much better than Red/Blue, but they BUTCHERED Kanto.

The good:

- Become a Pokemon trainer and travel the world collecting the little creatures, beating Gym leaders and trainers and earning badges, and fight the Elite Four in the end, as well as the powerful Ash, to become the Pokemon Master. Join in the adventure today!
- Collect/catch 251 different Pokemon creatures in Pokeballs and complete your Pokedex.
- Raise your Pokemon by using them in battles with trainers and watch them grow in strength, gain new attacks and powers, and evolve most of them to their more powerful forms. You can also heal your Pokemon.
- Collect money and buy items and even Pokemon occasionally to help you on your adventure. Items are found throughout the game and purchased at stores.
- Days and time added to the game, as well as night and day.
- Pokemon genders added.
- The item pack was better organized in this game. There is now more than one bag, so everything is not all mixed up in one bag.
- Collect TM and HM attacks found across the map and teach them to your Pokemon. Some attacks can be purchased at stores. Hundreds of attacks in the game.
- Trade Pokemon and battle with friends who have the games. Some Pokemon even evolve when traded, so keep an eye out for that.
- Two large maps: Johto and Kanto.
- Visit many towns, cities, forests, caves, boats, and even enter stores, buildings, and most houses. Cities have many things to do and buy in them, and all buildings/houses/stores are fully furnished. You can also talk to everyone in the game.
- Ride a bike, cut down grass/trees, walk the whole map, swim on Pokemon in water bodies, and even use Pokemon who know how to fly to fly to cities you have been to.
- Many challenges, tons of battles, and tons of fun. The game will take you at least 30 hours to beat, and much longer if you want to do and collect everything. Great replay value. Lots to do.
- Play some mini games occasionally, such as gambling at two casinos.
- The music is simple and catchy.
- The graphics have been improved immensely since Red/Blue. From the main world, to buildings, to even color added to the game. Pokemon look so much better in battle, and their attacks even look much better. Much better graphics in this set of games (Silver/Gold).

The bad:

- Again, you cannot catch every Pokemon in the game, just like in Red/Blue. There are also some version exclusive Pokemon again, which is still annoying, and also some given/chosen Pokemon choices that make it so you cannot collect them all. This forces players to trade with people who have the other version, or cheat in some ways.
- Some puzzles, caves, and gyms are like mazes. The game can be somewhat confusing at times, and very easy to get lost and frustrated.
- At certain parts of the game, there are too many trainers in an area, which makes battling irritating at times.
- Some caves/areas spawn too many Pokemon, and you can't even walk 3 steps before one attacks.
- They added Kanto to the game when you beat the Pokemon league, but they dumbed it down for no reason. The forest north of Viridian isn't even a forest anymore; the Power Plant is just a normal building now; Mount Moon is like pointless now; Cinnibar Island was ruined; there is no Safari Zone; and so much more. They gave us another region, but they ruined it and for no good reason. If they were going to give us Kanto again, they should have maybe thought to add things to it, not take away the great parts of it and ruin it.

Summary:

It's the next set of Pokemon games for the Game Boy. It is easy to understand why the world fell in love with Red/Blue and Pokemon itself when it first came out, but Silver and Gold are so much better than Red and Blue. The game is mindlessly fun and never really gets boring (until you get an updated, later released version). This is the second time I have played the game (the first time was 5 years ago when the game first came out).

The idea is as simple as it was in 1996 with the release of the first set of games: make a character, choose your first Pokemon, and start a long journey across...

As good as Gold

The good:

250 Different kinds of Pokemon to catch
Time ~ Now there is a night and day in game
You now have the option to use a cell/mobile phone
Better Graphics
Very cheap nowadays
Much longer storyline and is has alot more depth to it

The bad:

Annoying music(Always kept the sound to minimum)

Summary:

Pokemon Gold and Silver will always be legendary games in the Pokemon series after the massive step from Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow. Now with over 250 different kinds of Pokemon, plus with brand new features like being able to have time in game, and the use of a cell phone so you can ring trainers up that you've already encountered with and battle them again. There is soooo much more to do in this game then there was in Blue and Red and the attention and the detail is there. Plus the graphics have been attended to well and look quite nice considering how the graphics for Red and Blue were...

Great Pokemon Game

The good:

- Over 250 Pokemon - Legendarys - Night and Day - Sound - Assortment of items - Different Pokeballs - Different Space for certain items - Sweet Starters - Phone - Most Challenging Game Yet

The bad:

- Pretty Much Nothing

Summary:

This is the best pokemon game that I have ever played. There is great challenge in this game that makes it a lot more fun and rewarding. There is over 250 pokemon that you can capture and raise in this game. They are very tough to get as some of them only appear at certain times or in certain areas. For example you can only get Lapras in one specific cave on a Friday at night. There are new legendaries in this game also. There are two new legendary birds. One is a Physic/Flying bird and the other is a Fire/Flying bird. They are very strong and can't just be caught just because you f...

Silver rulez!

Summary:

Pokemon Silver is, well, a Pokemon game. Its the Blue of Red and Blue, and the Sapphire of Ruby and Sapphire. Being the second of the two, you'd think it wouldn't be to good. But it is, it is.

Gameplay: 10/10
Playing the game is fun and easy! Quite simply, you run around, and catch pokemon, fight other trainers, level up enough to beat the gym leaders, yadda yadda. However, when you get serious and make real compeditive teams made to fight other compeditive players, Pokemon Silver becomes a real no holds match of skill and stamina.

Story: 9/10
Alright, I admit, its rather generic. You want ...

Pokémon Strikes Again!

The good:

Breeding, whole new world to explore, new characters to speak to and fight. Graphics improved from red version, more color in the virtual world. Interesting to play.

The bad:

The clock (annoying when you want to catch a specific pokemon), the pokémon center (sometimes when ive already healed my pokemon i press A again and I have to go through the whole speech again zzz)

Summary:

This games rulez! Since its a RPG game, you don't get bored of it easily, there's always a new adventrue waiting round the bend or a new trainer or item! There are now 251 kinds of pokémon. You can breed two kinds of pokémon to get a baby one which is useful when you are trying to get a particular type. Some new types of pokémon can be evolved by happiness and there is a whole new world to explore. All of the pokemon games are linked in some way, so this one just works the same as all the others apart from that there is a new world, new chars etc. This game is brilliant, i'd play it all the...
