Generation II is the second generation of Pokémon games, and sequels to the original Generation I games Red and Green (Red and Blue for international players).

Generation II was the first Generation where Pokémon began to expand, introducing 100 new Pokémon which could not be found in the original Generation I games. Many of these Pokémon expand the evolution families of older Pokémon, while a majority of them are brand-new evolutionary families.

These games were initially called "Pocket Monsters 2". Generation II events occur three years after Generation I, and occur simultaneously with the events of Generation IV.

Chronologically, Gold, Silver and Crystal take place in the same timeline as Generation IV.
