Childhood in a game!

You can never beat the old school Pokémon games. It’s a timeless classic game that you can play at any stage and still enjoy the game. Developed by who other than, Game Freak. Adding another 100 new species of Pokémon world which never seems to grow old.

Simple but still golden

The plot is simple as you pick a Pokémon out of three at the start of Pokémon. Then having a rival who has picked one of the other two Pokémon left. You fight your rival through the game. You also must deal with Team Rocket, who are up to no good as usual. Then you also need to defeat the Pokémon leaders called the Elite Four to go on to defeat the Champion. Although this game is very similar to the other Pokémon games, it has a massive difference from the rest. After defeating the champion, you can then go to the Kanto Region where the previous game Red and Blue is set, and you can then take on the gym leaders from that game all leading up to the final battle. You get to fight the main character from the first game in the hardest battle of the game. The ending and the progress through this game creates a true masterpiece. As I started to play this game, I was thinking it’s just going to be the same as all the others but flips it completely over and changes it up massively.

Gotta catch all them Pixels!

The game has simple graphics using pixel art, but it did very well with every Pokémon looking different and having its own look so that no Pokémon species looks the same except for the evolved forms obviously. The area is all different with its own sense of atmosphere to them. As well as the Elite Four, who all have their unique look and feel while in a Pokémon battle. Even though the game is pixel art, no pixel is wasted when making this masterpiece of a game.

A classic

The gameplay is the same turned-based RPG where you catch Pokémon in the wild then level them up to fight different people. You take turns and pick your move then the other person you’re fighting makes their move and so on. It’s familiar and cemented into the Pokémon game series and it doesn’t need to change. As it still is the expected way to play the game, you train your Pokémon to learn new moves and evolve your Pokémon to be stronger. It’s the detail in the Pokémon themselves in the states of each Pokémon moves and each Pokémon itself with different Health and Attacks power for each move. The details put into this game is what makes this such a brilliant game to play and a must-play for everyone.

The best version is made of gold.

Pokémon Gold Version is a masterpiece of a game with no stone unturned. It has a great story, full of twists and turns, detail in everything it does, and it makes you feel differently about every Pokémon you use in each battle you have. It is a must-play for anyone, gamer or not.
