Generation Two:


Pokémon Gold Version and Pokémon Silver Version:

Pokémon Gold Version and Pokémon Silver Version are the first games in the second generation of the pokémon series and the first games to be released for the Game Boy Color. These games take place in the all new Johto region, with the ability to travel to the Kanto Region after the main storyline had completed. The Johto region introduces 100 new pokémon into the series. Your goal is to stop the Johto branch of team rocket. The game adds some interesting mechanics to the pokémon series such as the addition of shinies, which are oddly colored variations of the various pokémon. The chances of finding a shiny in the wild are over 1 in 8,000 but the game introduces the concept by allowing the player to catch a shiny Gyarados in the Lake of Rage. The second generation games also introduced two additional types, being the Dark type and the Steel type. These typings bring all new resistancies and immunities to the games, making competitive play that much more interesting. The main motif of the game is mythology, as represented by the purely elemental starters, keeping their single fire, water, and grass typings. Along with that, the mystery of the legendary beasts and the entire city of Ecruteak adds to the theme of mythology even more.


Pokémon Crystal Version:

Pokémon Crystal Version is the second installment in the Pokémon Gold Version and Pokémon Silver Version games. These games introduce no real change from the original Gold and Silver aside from the ability to play as a girl. This game once again puts the player into the Johto region, where the main Pokémon on the cover of the box is the water variant in the beast trio, Suicune. This signifies the title of Crystal because of Suicune's crystalized texture. With the game using Suicune as it's mascot, you. as the player, can catch Suicune after encountering it in various places throughout the story.
