About the game
Pokemon Gold Version is making its way to Virtual Console on Nintendo 3DS! This game, which debuted as a Game Boy Colour title in Japan, is being recreated into a Virtual Console version such that the screen appears just as it did on the Game Boy Colour.
Starting out as a rookie Trainer, you'll explore the sprawling region of Johto, and embark on a quest to capture as many Pokémon as you possibly can. Dozens of Pokémon join the action, including Legendary Pokémon trio Raikou, Entei, and Suicune. These games also introduced new Pokémon types as well – look out for Steel-type and Dark-type Pokémon throughout your travels.
- Both titles are compatible with the wireless communication features of Nintendo 3DS
- Trainers can enjoy Link Trades and Link Battles between Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Gold Version and Pokémon Silver Version.
- These titles are compatible with the Time Capsule function, allowing players to Link Trade Pokémon between the Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Gold Version or Pokémon Silver Version and the Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version, or Pokémon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition in Pokémon Centres within the games.
Owners of Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun or Ultra Moon can use the Game Code from Pokémon Gold to unlock a rare Celebi.
