"You already trap Pokémon and make them fight, so why not force them to pork each other while you're at it?" ~ Honest Game Trailers - Pokémon Gold and Silver

Script Edit

From the company [Nintendo] that's throwing everything at the wall to see what sticks, comes the greatest video game sequel ever until Half Life 3 transcends space and time as we know it.

Pokémon Gold and Silver

Return to the world of classic Pokémon when catching them all was still a somewhat realistic goal. And step into the shoes of Ethan, another fatherless ten-year-old sent off by another tree-named professor [Elm] to do another job that is way too dangerous for a single child to accomplish. But this time he's got a cellphone so he can, you know, call home or whatever.

Make your way through the Johto Region as you experience a host of brand new features like: day-and-night cycles so you can schedule what's left of your life around playing the game; breeding because you already trap pokémon and make them fight, so why not force them to pork each other while you're at it?; friendship, the new stat that makes you feel less guilty for what you do to your slaves; and full blown color! [Crickets] Look, it was a big deal at the time! Alright?! Geez!

Once again, battle your way through the hall of fame by conquering the Elite Four. And when you do, hold on to your stupid hat as the entire region [Kanto] from the first game is unlocked with eight new badges to win and a mountain top duel against your character [Red] from the first game. Now that's how you make a sequel!

So after you've spend countless hours of catching all one hundred fifty generation one pokémon, get ready to do it all over again with a hundred new ones and you better believe we're naming them all! [Deep breath]

Trivia Edit

Reception Edit

Honest Game Trailers - Pokémon Gold and Silver has a 98.4% approval rating from YouTube viewers. In her review of the video, Colette of My Nintendo News described the whole Honest Game Trailers series as "highly entertaining' and wrote "the naming of all the new Gold and Silver Pokemon is certainly a treat to hear, particularly 'Ledy Baba'." Nathaniel Smyth of Entertainment Buddha called the video "brutally honest" and wrote "It makes you really think back to when you played it when you were a kid, and most people probably never really thought about some of the odd stuff that goes on in those games. Aside from that, they even give honest names for every single Gen-two Pokemon, and quite frankly some of them are better than the actual names of the Pokemon." Dorkly also posted a very positive write-up, noting, "Not only does it go through every success and failure of the first major Pokemon sequel, but they go so far as to give new nicknames to each additional Pokemon added for the Johto region. It's impressive."
