Pokémon HeartGold / SoulSilver DS Walkthrough

The nefarious Team Rocket is back. Three years after causing all kinds of trouble in Kanto in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen versions, the unruly organization has moved to the Johto region to continue their criminal ways.  It’s evident that Team Rocker is treating Pokémon terribly and using Pokémon to help carry out their illegal deeds.  But what is their ultimate goal.  You will discover their true secrets as you play Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver versions.


Your story begins in New Bark Town, a small town that also happens to be the home of Professor Elm.  When Professor Elm asks you to carry out an important task for him, little do you know that it’s the start of an amazing adventure that will take you to all corners of Johto.  You will encounter experienced Gym Leaders, incredible locales, scores of Pokémon, and of course Team Rocket. The stories of Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver version are mostly the same, but there are few differences between them. For one, there are several Pokémon that you can catch in only one version or the other. 

What’s more, you will only encounter Ho-Oh before you defeat the Elite Four in Pokémon HeartGold Version.  You will meet Lugia before you defeat the Elite Four only in Pokémon SoulSilver Version.  To succeed at the true challenger and catch every Pokémon,  you will have to trade your friends. As you journey through Johto, you will catch more and more Pokémon, and you will become a stronger and smarter Trainer.  If you can obtain the ultimate goal and enter the Johto Hall of Fame, you will be able to return to the Kanto region, the land of Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen versions, where even more incredible adventure await.



Set off you adventure across the Johto region as either a boy Trainer or a girl Trainer.  The character you don’t select will appear during your journey to support you.
