Games: Newer Scans: Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver
Posted on Jun 13th, 2009 10:35 PM by coolbho3k
Thanks to CoroCoro, HeartGold and SoulSilver news has just been pouring in the past few days! These higher resolution CoroCoro scans have recently popped up on 2ch. The scans are from the same issue of the magazine as the old, blurrier scans, but are much more detailed and reveal some new information.
First off, more information about the event Jirachi has been released. It will be holding a Leichi Berry and know the moves Wish, Confusion, Rest, and Draco Meteor (a move exclusive to this event).
The new scans have confirmed (or at least strongly imply) that Kanto will be playable in HeartGold and SoulSilver, due to maps of Kanto being included in the scans. Not that this was a surprise, anyway.
The ability of your starter to follow your character was revealed in the surprise Pokémon Sunday reveal. CoroCoro reveals that it will be possible for any species of Pokémon to follow the character - be it a starter, its evolutions, a caught wild Pokémon, or a legendary. The Pokémon can also be spoken to display its current mood.
Pre-order gifts for both HeartGold and SoulSilver have been confirmed to include Ho-Oh, Lugia, and Arceus figures. While you can only receive Ho-Oh if you only pre-order HeartGold and Lugia if you pre-order SoulSilver, you can get both as well as Arceus if you pre-order them both together. Let`s hope Nintendo will distribute these figurines in other regions, too!
In addition, the interfaces for the Pokédex, bag, and other in game menus have been completely redesigned from previous Generation IV games. Thanks for reading!

This game sounds quite promising. It does have greatly improved graphics. And all the Pokemon following you... However only the top one one the team can. And i did see a bit of Kanto, at least to my knowing of where Kanto ends and Johto begins. This is going to be the best game in 4 years for me.

I agree! I can't believe they are making, how many? 493+16 more Arceus types+3 more Deoxys forms+that other pichu+(possible) 4 more rotom forms+27 more unown letters+west gastrodon and shellos+giritina origin form+shaymin sky+2 more burmy/wormadam forms=552, if I am correct. Can't wait to have a wailord following me. O_O
(btw, Liechi Berry is misspelled in the article)
Wow this is going to be awesome. GameFreak is really pulling out the stops for this game. So far it is looking to be not only the best remake, but possibly the best pokemon game period in my opinion. Glad to see them really pushing the envelop.
I guess they're trying to recreate the innovativeness of the original GSC in the remake. This might just be the best pokemon game I've played if they do it right
All pokemon following you around *thinks of his precious drifloon* oh, oh! That would be so wonderful! Think of palkia or giratina following you around! If you went up and talked to someone they'd probably faint. Wailord O.O

This game is going to be good!
A Jirachi with Draco Meteor?
Any idea when its gonna be released
Also, wouldn't a petaya berry have been a better choice?
June 19th i guess? I heard some ppl saying that it might be released over wi-fi, either a downloadable station or throughout the WFC (hope for the latter, as i have a japanese game as well )...
Anyway is it possible for the american / us version to include the poke figures as well? I'm thinking of preordering the Lugia, but apparently i only know a bit of japanese so i might want to get the english version as well ...
