I have just recently reserved one for myself. I saw screen shots opf the Japanese version, and it is better than Gold/Silver. For one, when you enter a new route or city, a little box will appear at the bottom of the screen to let you know what city/route you have entered. Also, the legendary dogs/cats, whatever they are, are now seen in the wild. Suicune is the main Pokemon in this game. What I mean by that is, you will see what he lopoks like and Entei and Raikou will appear as they do in G/S. Also, you finally get the G/S Ball. If you take it to Kurt, **** take it for a day, give it back to you when you go back. When you get it back, you can take it into the Ilex Forest, put it in the Shrine you past by, and have a chance of carching Celebii. There are also a few new items, but, I don't know what they're are called. It also has updated information on the Unown. Also, there are new puzzles you have to figure out in order to catch the 26 Unown. This game is going to be of of the best sequels to any Pokemon game. This is a must-have for any die-hard Pokemon fan.
