[Review:Pokemon] Pokemon Heartgold and Soulsilver

Post by BorderlineStupi on Mon Apr 05, 2010 3:38 pm



Pokemon Heartgold and Soulsilver are remakes of Pokemon Gold and Silver that take you back to the Johto region to catch some fan favorite Pokemon that were previously unobtainable in the GBA/Nintendo DS Pokemon games. 

First thing I'd like to mention is the story,  Pokemon Heartgold and Soulsilver start you off in a small town called Newbark town were you meet Professor Elm and get your first Pokemon. You get go choose your first Pokemon being Cyndaquil, Totadile or Chickarida. Then you go on you first pokequest and meet your rival. I'm not going to tell you all the story so let's go to the legendary Pokemon that are on the cover of Pokemon Heartgold and Soulsilver. First Lugia, To get to Lugia you have to complete like 10 quest beforehand that can try on your nerves. Once you obtain the items you can go to the whirlpool islands. This quest requires you to have Surf, Strength and Flash. After that you spend about an hour trying to figure out how to get to Lugia. On the upside Lugia is fairly easy to catch and once you find it you can get on with your life shortly after. Now for Ho-oh, Ho-oh is alot easier to get to than Lugia considering the fact that you don't need HM's and all you have to do is figure out the way through the tower which is like maze. At the most it will take you 20 minutes to figure you way  to the top. Like Lugia Ho-oh is fairly easy to catch. After you catch Ho-oh/Lugia you either go defeat the last Gym or go on to the Pokemon League. After that you get to go to the Kanto region. It all sums up with you beating the game by beating red (Pokemon Heartgold and Soulsilvers version of Ash) and getting a Kanto starter from Professor Oak.


Things that made this game for me.

1) Red Gyrados is back witch means no matter what you can get a shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Heartgold and Soulsilver.

2) The Legendarys, You can catch almost every legendary Pokemon in Pokemon Heartgold and Soulsilver. Exceptions being Mew, Celibi and all the sinoh legends (excluding Palkia,Diagla and Garitina if you have Arceus.)

3) Red (Ash) is back. That's right you can once again battle the strongest CPU trainer to exist in any Pokemon game. 

4) Various people from the Hoen and Sinoh Regions (Such as Steven from Pokemon ruby, saphire and emraild versions) make random appearances.

5) Kanto Region makes it way from Pokemon Silver and Gold to Pokemon Heartgold and Soulsilver.

6) The new and totally customizable Safari Zone.

7) Your Pokemon Can Follow You Around! That's right all 493 Pokemon can follow you around outside of battle!

Things that broke the game for me.

1) The battle system is still the same as always, including the fact you can only have four moves per Pokemon.

2) Some of the text in the game can mislead you into doing the wrong thing and getting stuck.

3) All the stupid quest you have to do to get anything done in the Kanto region.

4) It is almost impossible to catch the three legendary birds without a masterball.

5) They favor Suicune over Raikou and Entei, Giving Suicune it's own quest and Raikou and Entei just run around.

6) Ho-oh is easier to get to then Lugia and Lugia doesn't even get a cool item like Ho-oh. 

Game play

They game play has it's ups and it's downs. For one the story is good but it can sometimes be misleading. Secondly the battle system is the same way it's always been witch is good for some people and boring for others. A third thing is the trainer battles, their fun at first but after battling like 300 of um it gets kinda old (although it's a great way to grind later in the game.)
And last but not least the wild Pokemon battles, same as every other Pokemon game, it gets so repetitive that your forced to spend all you money on repels because your so sick of running into damn battles.

Rap Up and Rating.

All together they are good games for people that are just getting into Pokemon or people that want to go back the the good old days. Personally I loved these games even with there flaws. On a scale from one to ten a give them an eight because they are games that is easy to understand and play for the most part and they did a great job at bringing back Pokemon gold  and silver.

Rating: 8/10
