Pokémon HeartGold and Pokémon SoulSilver are Generation IV's remakes of the original Generation II games, Pokémon Gold and Silver. Nintendo released Pokémon HeartGold and Pokémon SoulSilver versions in Japan on September 12, 2009. The games were released in March 14, 2010 for North America and March 26, 2010 in Europe.

These remakes incorporate the many advancements that the series has undergone since Generation II, much like how FireRed and LeafGreen changed from Red and Blue.

Poké Walker

  • The Poké Walker is a handheld pedometer that resembles a Poké Ball. It was sold with the HeartGold and SoulSilver Pokémon games.
  • The Poké Walker can connect to HeartGold and SoulSilver cartridges via infared signals and can "hold" one Pokémon that you then carry around with you.
  • A Pokémon being carried around in this manner will recieve experience points and closeness, as well as the player gaining "watts", an in-game currency that can be used to find and catch wild Pokémon, search for items, and unlock new locations within the Poké Walker.
  • Up to three Pokémon can be captured and stored on the Pokewalker, but only one will appear on the inventory screen.
  • You will also be able to receive items through other Poké Walker devices using infared.
  • The Poké Walker is similiar to the Pokémon Pikachu 2 pedometer/virtual pet in its use of Watts as currency to trade for items.



Other Pokémon

  • Like in the originals, you can obtain Sudowoodo at Level 20.
  • You can also get Lapras in Union Cave at level 20 each Friday.
  • The infamous Red Gyarados is at level 30. (It is a water-flying type, so be careful with the electric attacks!)
  • You can catch a Snorlax at Route 11 at Level 50, which is blocking the Diglett Cave, and you have to wake it up to capture by playing the Poké Flute in the PokéGear.
  • When you have the event Pikachu Coloured Pichu , go to the Shrine in Ilex Forest and then you will have chance to get the Notched Eared Pichu (or for the US and Europe Spiky Eared Pichu). The Pichu is given to you, so you don't have to waste Poké Balls.





  • Fish or sea Pokémon can follow the player on land, although they have to live in water.
  • Legendary or large Pokémon cannot follow the player when the player enters a building.
  • Lyra appeared in the anime in a 5-episode arc to promote HGSS.
  • In both versions you get to fight both Red and Blue (from FireRed and LeafGreen versions).
