When initially launched on the Game Boy Color system, the Pokémon Silver Version game continued to expand the Pokémon universe, adding 100 Pokémon, held items, Pokémon eggs, and real-time events thanks to an internal game clock. Now a new feature lets you trade and battle Pokémon using local wireless on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems!

Pokémon Gold and Silver are great entries in the Pokémon franchise, but I would argue that every main series Pokémon game has been a great entry in the franchise. All of them bring new things to the table and generally improve the series from the previous entries. Does that make Gold and Silver any less great? No. These games have gone down in history as some of the greatest in the franchise and they deserve to be remembered as such.
I always appreciate when old games are either re-released or brought back to play on the newer consoles. Remakes, when possible, are even better. Here we have two classic entries in the franchise, and for those wanting to take a step back in time and enjoy those fond memories, it’s super easier to give them another shot. For those that never played these before, it’s not necessary as the latest games have the core ideas Silver and Gold showcased years ago, with plenty more added to the new version. Older games can and do get dated, but it’s always nice to see how a long standing franchise evolves, changes, and ultimately how we got to the point we are at today.
Put simply, it's a must-have for Pokemon fans who live and die by the "catch 'em all" creed; for everyone else, however, it's simply another version of yet-another retro release whose initial massive allure has been dulled throughout nearly two decades. It's a great game in it's own right, but Pokemon Silver (and, presumably, the re-release of Pokemon Gold) very likely won't have enough content to satisfy any of the remaining players who are still unfamiliar with the Pokemon series.
