GAME DETAILS

When initially launched on the Game Boy Color system, the Pokémon Gold Version game continued to expand the Pokémon universe, adding 100 Pokémon, held items, Pokémon eggs, and real-time events thanks to an internal game clock. Now a new feature lets you trade and battle Pokémon using local wireless on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems!

Dozens of Pokémon join the action, including Legendary Pokémon trio Raikou, Entei, and Suicune. Pokémon Gold Version introduced new Pokémon types as well—look out for Steel-type and Dark-type Pokémon throughout your travels. At the start of your expedition, you'll have the option to choose one of three starting Pokémon: Chikorita, Cyndaquil, or Totodile. Then, prepare to battle your rival frequently as the two of you make your way across the incredible Johto region. You'll find Pokémon in Pokémon Gold Version that you won't find in Pokémon Silver Version, so look for a fellow Trainer to trade with!

  • Experience the classic gameplay of the Pokémon Gold Version game!
  • Discover the innovations that started with the Pokémon Gold Version game.
  • Battle and trade with friends using local wireless
  • Catch all of the 100 Johto Region Pokémon by trading with your friends who have the Pokémon Silver Version game!

This game is only playable in 2D.
