Travel through the Johto region 15 years before Gold and Kris’ Pokémon adventure. You’ll see both new and familiar faces. As starters, choose between Dratini and Larvitar! Aim to collect all eight badges, face off against the Pokémon League, and record all known Pokémon in your Journal! Be on the lookout for a conspiracy! Strange black people have been poaching and kidnapping Pokémon all over the region! It might be up to you to solve this puzzle! The current version allows you to earn 7 badges.
