In case you haven’t heard, remakes of Pokémon Gold and Silver were announced earlier today, under the names HeartGold and SoulSilver.

As you probably know, there have been rumours of remakes floating around for ages, and speculation reached a new peak when the Pokémon Sunday TV show said a major announcement would be made this weekend. Nintendo seems to have jumped the gun to surprise us.

Gold/Silver was arguably the biggest step forward for the series, with the introduction of fruit trees, breeding, an in-game clock, weekly events and the ability to return to the setting of the original game after you’d finished with Johto, giving the game huge longevity. Plus, it was the first full-colour game, and introduced a whole two new types, helping to balance the vastly overpowered psychic type from the original.
