Pokémon Gold Version is 1999 role-playing video games developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo for the Game Boy Color.
The gameplay still presents the intricate complexities of the original Pokemon games. But, you also have new additions to the gameplay that make Pokemon Gold and Silver truly leaps and bounds away from the pack.
Pokemon is still caught using Poke Balls in the tall grass. Except, for now, there are more specialized varieties of Poke Balls than ever before. You still have the three usual suspects, the most common types of Poke Balls from Pokemon Blue, Red, and Yellow. Those three types are Poke Balls, Great Balls, and Ultra Balls. You can find one of these types at every store in the Pokemon universe. Now, new dimensions have been added to the art of Poke Balls.
The Master Ball returns! The Master Ball is the ultimate Poke Ball. Chances are very rare that you will get more than one. Conserving your Master Ball for the absolute right moment becomes almost as important as catching Pokemon as the game progresses. The Safari Balls do not make a comeback, but a type of Poke Ball in very close relation to the Safari Ball makes an appearance. That ball is entitled to the Park Ball. In the Safari Zone, the only type of Poke Balls that could be used were Safari Balls.
If the audio design in this game wasn’t good, then it was memorable. There were a large number of audio variations within the game, most-all of them well made. As well as your traveling and battle soundtracks, you got one for each town, the gyms got their own…there was some difference for specific bosses. As well as a good variety, there was good timing. I didn’t hear the upbeat tunes while traveling in a ghost tower.
