Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver Speculation Thread
Please use this thread to discuss possibilities of things that you think might or might not be in HeartGold and SoulSilver.
Please make a note of confirmed information in the thread here:
Some information from GSC:
Regarding Pokémon availability:
The game will most likely use the Johto Pokédex which included all 251 known Pokémon at that time. However, not all of them were available to be caught in the games.
Unobtainable Pokémon in Pokémon Gold:
Unobtainable Pokémon in Pokémon Silver
It's also possible that the Pokemon included in the Johto Dex who now have new evolutions from Gen 3 or 4 could see those evolutions present in the new games and possibly a newer version of the Johto Dex. Or perhaps they won't be, like FR/LG? What do you think?
Pokemon that have been introduced in Gen III or IV that evolve from or into a Johto Dex Pokemon:
Despite being able to travel to Kanto, these Pokemon were unavailable:
Out of these listed Kanto Pokemon, the fossil Pokemon are able to be found in the Underground in DPP, the three legendary birds are found in Platinum, but the starters are only obtainable by migration from FRLG and Mewtwo/Mew are not available in a 4th Gen game yet.
Also, Celebi was obtainable through an item-activated event in the Japanese version, but not American. Therefore, it could be possible that a Celebi event could be in the new games. Perhaps with a GS Ball event similar to the Member's Card or Oak's Letter.
What do you think about the Kanto starters and Mew/Mewtwo? Do you think there could be something similar to Birch giving you a Johto starter in Emerald? Or perhaps an item-activated event for Mewtwo in the Cerulean Cave?
Legendary Pokemon in GS:
I think it's safe to say that the Regi-trio Pokemon will not be included in these versions since they were already in Platinum (as well as obviously being in RSE).
Obtainable Pokemon through in-game gifts
* N/A ATM
Keep in mind this thread is purely for speculation as we have no actual information to go on.
What do you think about this? Do you think other Pokemon will be included?
Do you think Kanto will be included (or do you think it will be cut since it already appeared in FR/LG)? Do you think more of Kanto's Pokemon will be available? Do you think Kanto will be the same size? Bigger/more in-depth than in GS?
What kind of legendary/event Pokemon do you think will be in the game? What kind of Pokemon do you think we'll get through item-activated events (such as Darkrai, Shaymin and Arceus)? Do you think we'll see ways to obtain Mewtwo, Mew, Celebi or even Jirachi's first in-game obtainable appearance?
What other aspects of the game do you think will be included? Or what do you think will be cut from the original release of GS?
I'm personally really hoping to see something like the Battleground from Platinum where you'd be able to re-battle the characters from GS such as the Johto and Kanto Gym leaders (and maybe even Red, if he comes out of his cave...).
Let's talk about it.

I'm just hoping for more obtainable legendaries (without events) because I'm tired of cheating for the legendaries I get. One of the reasons I'm trying to buy all the pokemon games and eventually get all of those legendaries up to platinum.

I need a real location to jirachi
Perhaps they'll release an event to get Celebi eventually. What we need is an expanded Johto and Kanto... Kanto was terribly short in GSC and limited. Also, GSC's difficulty was VERY easy... highest level Pokemon being a level 51 Golbat (without counting legendaries) and the E4's strongest Pokemon being a level 50 Dragonite. Pathetic :-/
Maybe a difficulty setting like The Fallen's suggestion might do? I wish they had something like that... GSC felt n00bified.
Also, I'm hoping Mismagius and Honchkrow are available before beating the game and whatnot because although the former was great even if unevolved, the latter's unevolved form was quite unimpressive.

As long as either Scizor, Weavile, or Lucario is obtainable, I'm semi-happy, I'm quite depressed looking at the fact your unable to obtain either Mew, or Mewtwo, which is a downside.
I really can't wait for this game, because when it was originally released, i was only a little kid, that was too retarded to let turn based games enter my life.....until i played Golden Sun, then that changed my perspective.
The lists I posted were from the original versions on the GameBoy. There's no final word yet on whether Mewtwo will be obtainable or not, but... who knows, it could really go either way.
Possibly big graphic/technology updates. Like, instead of a train, you see a Monorail and you travel throughout the city (The station in Golden Rod) into Saffron (I believe). That would be neat. I really hope it's as vibrant as Platinum if not more.
Getting rid of the radio and making it an MP3 player would be nice too.
Sabresite: Sorry I deleted your signature pic on accident, .
What I would like to see would be separate Pokemon Leagues. Every Region has had its own Pokemon League except Jhoto which shared a League with Kanto. Having two separate Leagues to beat would add more to the story IMO.
As far as what pokemon they will have I am sure you will be able to get all of them, but most likely it will be like FR/LG where you start with the basic Pokedex you had in the Original and then upgrade it later.
Honestly, I would prefer it that way. I loved how they did that with FR/LG because it really gave you the feel of the original, but more zazzy.
well i hopeing celebii will be in it (most likely will) and it would be cool to get him the same way like in crystal and i didnt think about jurichi possably the white rock professor oak mentiond in platinum could have some thing to do with it but then again it could just be another shaymin you know like how they but deoxys and lugia and ho-oh in firered and leaf green
and emerald a gs ball event would be cool!
i wonder if the rotom formes will be in this game i hope they are and giratinas two cause there not trade able so how would you get them?

anyway ... i haven't played G/S/C ..
so many people said that this game is the best pokemon series ever ...
why?? coz' diamond/pearl 's already good for me XD ... and platinum is the best for now XD ( not counting the bugs in GTS =_= )
well if theres a plane then there might be latios in lotios in it two because in emerald people said they flew in trough plan and saw two werd pokemon and i found out it was latios and laitas it would be cool to get new sprites of them and stuff but i highly doubt they will be in the games
