    [​IMG] CoroCoro Reveals New Pokemon HG/SS Details
    Release date included!
    [​IMG]

    The newest issue of CoroCoro magazine is out, and in it are new details on the upcoming remakes of Pokemon Gold/Silver. I'll get straight to the good stuff:
    • Pre-orders start on July 20th, same date as new movie, speculative pre-order movie cross promotion.
    • It is hinted at that Kanto will be available.
    • New wi-fi features included, "building on what was established with Diamond and Pearl, and Platinum."
    • The player can choose either a male or female character. However, the female character is NOT the female from Crystal. She's a completely new character.
    • PokeGear has been redesigned.
    • There appears to be some sort of Pichu event in Ilex Forest.
    Here are some of the new scans:

    North Americans, rest easy. Nintendo recently filed for trademarks in the U.S. for "Pokemon Heart Gold" and "Pokemon Soul Silver".

    EDIT:Apparently, the release date and skateboard info was a lie. Sorry about that, everyone. Joystiq apologized for misinforming us!

    Haha, that doesn't sound like a very good release date. =P
    But I'm looking forward to this remake. I don't think I have ever beaten Silver..

    WTF I dont want want those names. Soul silver is alright but heart gold?
    Good thing I'm a silver man myself otherwise I'd be devastated by Gold's horrible name.
    (And Lucky I don't pick the girl character. I mean what the hell is up with her hat? Is she hiding a freaking Groudon under there?)

    I'm pretty sure you'll be able to trade with Diamond/Pearl and Platinum. It wouldn't make sense to remove that ability. However, you probably won't be able to trade new Pokemon from D/P/Pl to SS/HG (for example, giving HG/SS a Torterra or something). Other than that, I see no issues.

    About the PalPark thing, I'm not so sure. I would imagine there would be no problem with that.

    I really don't see them doing anything GBA related with this one. With DSi out they're not gonna want to exclude people from some features no matter how small the amount is.

    I doubt FireRed and LeafGreen will get a remake. Not for a long time. Especially if you consider the fact that they ARE remakes.

    And the release date is for Japan so any Pokemon-terrorism links can be dismissed.

    Edit: Just saw the pics, the girl trainer looks as ugly as shit.

    why not? that would be dumb. what i think is you can trade pokemon right off the bat from d/p/p or you have to beat the game and unlock some machine that lets you bring d/p/p pokemons to g/s.

    Well, in previous games, you couldn't bring new Pokemon to an old game. But then again, this will be a first... An old game is getting remade after new games. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    What? That bit is a bit unclear.
    You could bring new Pokemon to an old game (R/S/E/Colosseum/XD to FR/LG). Or did you mean like the original old games (remakes not included)?

    There
    he means like,you can't bring Dialga in Pokemon Blue,and in that sense,it may be at the first part of the game,only Jhoto Pokemon are accessible,not the 3th and 4th gen pokemons,since this is a remake,but who knows,we might be able to use an Arceus against the the Elite 4 [​IMG]
