In Gold Version, players have the chance to visit an all-new region of the Pokémon world! In Johto, it's a whole new (Poké)ball game, with 100 new creatures to capture and train, eight new Gym Leaders to defeat and a new configuration of the Elite Four. But that's not all, because soon thereafter, you get the opportunity to revisit the region explored in the Pokémon Red and Blue games of the previous generation, Kanto!
