Product Description

Product Description

This popular series continues to add new innovations and features with each release. The object of Pokémon Silver is still to become the "World's Greatest Pokémon Master" by capturing, training and battling different creatures, this time with all-new creatures and moves.

Also, elements such as day-and-night gameplay and the ability to breed and mutate Pokémon add an exciting new dimension to the game.

You will be able to transfer Pokémon from the red, blue and yellow editions--even train them for new tricks--but you won't be able to transfer your newly caught creatures to any previously released games. Also, expect special, limited edition gold and silver Game Boy Color units decorated with Pokémon characters.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Featuring a brand new adventure filled with numerous enhancements and innovations, this long-awaited sequel to Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow greatly improves upon the series' winning formula, making for an even more insanely addictive and wholly absorbing gaming experience.

Like Pokémon Gold, which is essentially the same story with minor gameplay variations, Pokémon Silver casts players in the familiar role of a young Pokémon Trainer who is out to collect as many different kinds of Pokémon as possible. As in previous games, gameplay consists mostly of exploration (completing various quests in the process) and Pokémon battles, which employ a unique battle-system that is like a complex twist on rock-paper-scissors.

But despite the similarities, it's quite apparent that Pokémon Silver is a whole new ball game from the start. The game is played out in real time, with the current time and day-of-the-week (recorded by an internal clock) having a direct impact on gameplay elements such as what Pokémon you will find in the wild, and when certain events occur and characters appear.

While there are simply too many new and improved features in Pokémon Silver to list here, among the highlights are 100 new Pokémon (including two new types), new evolution processes (including breeding) and a more streamlined game interface with better-organized menus and button shortcuts.

Although it's easier to progress in Pokémon Silver than the previous games, the sheer amount of fun and game time involved is daunting. You would be really hard-pressed to find a better value gamethan this. --Joe Hon

Format:Video Game
this time makers nitendo have created thier most atmospheric world ever now with new time keeping added it kicks the asses of every other pokemon game there is you would love to buy this game pokemon is the top selling games of all time and nintendo must of had a target to beat themselves at thier own game because they certainly overcome it with th new pokemon , new moves and (you thought it couldent be done ) but new obstacles to overcome the new pokemon hardley blend in with the old ones as now they draw ecermore lagging behind the original pokemon are seeing stars as they are taken down one by one by the all new pokemon like marril and not forgettin the sludge monster from under your bed who we will remain unnamed for a suprise for all of you this game will certainly be a hit as soon as the new little fella's hit the shelve's here are its score's
gameplay: it has ace gameplay as the liddle dudes move around the screen with such agility 7/10
graphics:not to good seeing as its a gameboy game but good 5/10
lifspan: it now takes a long while to complete this coz you have to go back to the old pokemon world so Ash Ketchum can make his apperance yet again so 10/10
so nintendo have done it again here's another big hit so five stars ***** !!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST POKEMON GAME FOR ANY CONSOLE TO DATE! 6 Jun. 2001
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
This (along with Pokemon Gold which is virtually the same)is probably the best game there is for Game Boy. It's got the perfect blend of RPG and fighting, and is a vast improvement over the now dated Pokemon Red/Blue. Includes addition of Johto AND Kanto (the world from Red, Blue and Yellow) with new Pokemon; 8 new badges and gym leaders; a Pokegear which includes map, phone and radio; real-time built-in clock; nocturnal Pokemon: the list of improvements is endless. All I can say now is roll on Pokemon Advance!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget Red and Blue!! Long live Silver!!! 8 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
I bought this the day it came out after a long wait. After reading what other reviews had to say, I was amazed to find out that most of them were correct- this is a great game!
The new adventure adds to the challenge and the new pokemon to discover are wonderful. So far, I have managed to catch 22 of the wee beasties but I still have a long way to go. The new features and gadgets you can get would have every pokemon fan wanting more. The mobile phone, for example, lets you call other trainers for re-matches and there is also a radio which you can get hints from.
The best feature is the fact that the game works in real time. When it is 6pm in real life, it is the same in the game. Different events happen on different days and you even have to change the clock when they go back or forward. This just shows gaming at its best.
For those who haven't experienced the ways of the pokemon, get this!! Young or old, the little beasties will leave you wanting more. I can't stop playing the game and I probably won't until every little secret is found. This deserves more than 5 stars, way more!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Game Ever Made For the GameBoy! 3 Jan. 2001
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Could a gameboy game BE any better? If you think pokemon red/blue or yellow is cool, you'll love Pokemon Gold. If there is any game a person should have for a gameboy, it has to be Pokemon Gold. It has 151 new pokemon, 8 new gym leaders plus all of your old favourites. !!! The gameplay is quick to pick up but more challenging than the previous versions. It's so good, folk are beginning to wonder if my gameboy is superglued to my hand. Basically, its just the best game ever!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Silver Forever 30 Jan. 2003
Format:Video Game
Pokemon Silver Version is a must for pokemaniacs. Even if doesn't do much like Gold and crystal version, it still has the touch pokemon fans needs. Catching pokemon is quite tough and time consuming because to have all the pokemons in the version, it will take you weeks if you don't like sitting around the whole day, for my case it took me two months to get 215. There is a real-time clock built in with the pak, so that means there is day and night, various pokemons appear only at a specific time of the day like Ledyba a bug pokemon that appears during morning. All dark type pokemons appears at 6:00 o'clock pm. Lapras can be seen every Friday at the deepest part of the union cave. There are lots of enhancements made and much more mysteries in store. I highly recommend this version since this is my favorite.

Format:Video Game
This is a brilliant game. A fabulous sequal to the red and blue versions.With 100 new pokemon to catch and new attacks for them to boot this is definitely the best game out on gameboy at the moment. With playing abilities in colour too this is a must have for any gameboy fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pokemon GOLD, it deserves the name! 8 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Pokemon Gold is probaly the best game ever made for a hand held console. It introduces an extra 100 pokemon to train and fight.
The world is so big that you can go anywhere and it feels like a new place everytime. On Red and Blue you could complete it in 10-15 hours but this game will take 3 times as long.
It also has a radio and a mobile phone so people can give info. Pure brilliance!
Forget any other game buy this. You will not be dissapointed.
