Pokémon Silver Version is 1999 role-playing video games developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo for the Game Boy Color.
Pokemon Silver utilizes the tried-and-true formula of Pokemon games. Collect a team of six monsters and try to become the Champion trainer by defeating wild Pokemon, rival trainers, Gym Leaders, and criminal organizations in turn-based, strategic battle. There are 100 new Pokemon this time around, and the old continent of Kanto is replaced by the new continent of Johto (however, Kanto still exists and is accessible). This game presents many new concepts from the days of Red/Blue/Yellow versions, such as Pokemon holding items, two new Pokemon types (Dark and Steel), a slew of further attacks, and Pokemon breeding. That’s right, put a male and a female pogey together, and they make an egg. This can be used to acquire rare Pokemon (like Eevee) or pass on certain Egg Moves to Pokemon that otherwise would not learn those moves naturally.
Pokemon Silver has an in-game clock. It keeps track of time, any day of the week. This is important because (especially in the early game) some Pokemon only come out at certain times of the day, and some only come out on certain days of the week. This is frustrating in the early game if you obsessively and compulsively try to catch every pogey in an area before moving on to the next one since if you start your Silver version at night, you’ll have to wake up before 10:00 (the transition from Morning to Day) the next day to catch Ledyba. And if you’re an unlucky soul who obtains your Surf HM on a Saturday, you’re going to have to wait until the next Friday to have a shot at Lapras, Luckily, this clock does not affect too many aspects of the game, and once you get past the first few areas, the Pokemon aren’t so restricted.
As for overworld graphics, Pokemon is average at best, but that’s perfectly fine with me. It shines during a battle. The Pokemon sprites are bold and colorful, and the flashy move animations are fun to watch.
