Pokemon Gold and Silver utilize the general design blueprint supplied in Red/Blue/Yellow Boy wanders the land to become the greatest Pokemon trainer in the world, with
an arch rival out to take your glory every step of the way. Both versions are identical in every way, except for the character images during battles, and the characters that can be caught in the wild, keeping with the "trading is necessary" design. The game has the familiar Japanese-style RPG engine, meaning top-down scrolling provides the perspective, and big-headed people inhabit the world. The hook in Pokemon is the fact that you yourself don't do your own fighting instead, creatures you capture in the wild supply the brute force of your battle skills. The creatures are Pokemon, and in Pokemon Gold and Silver there are exactly 251 different species of these animals hiding in the game, waiting to be caught and trained. Happy hunting!
