My version. Loved this game!

Recommended it? Yes

My brother and I played these games all the time!  The only downside to this and the gold is that there is a little battery embedded on the chipset that goes bad.  When this happens, you can no longer have day and night which means you cannot catch certain pokemon.  Not a problem if...

Is it worth the money?

Pros new pokemon
Cons still no mew
Recommended it? Yes

I have been an avid fan of the pokemon games since I was hooked on Red. The game has since grown in leaps and bounds. The pokedex in silver has grown from 150-250... more or less. The new pokemon, as well as the old have learned new moves, and new evolutions. A key factor in the overall completion... Read full review »

Cons More gimmicks for Nintendo to make money, and less substance for our dollar

Gotta Catch?em All! That?s the battle cry of all
young poke-maniacs, and my son Allen is no different. We
first read about Pokemon Silver and Gold a year before it
was introduced to America. Both my son and I (Yes, I have
been known to pick up the Game Boy and catch a Jigglypuff... Read full review »

Cons Having to walk around for an hour waiting to breed pokemon

I like to play the pokemon games because they give me something to do in my spare time besides read and they are alot of fun. Red and Blue versions were good when they first came out but they didn't have very good effects and the effects they did have were not good enough because they were not... Read full review »

Pros * More Pokemon fun * More to do than ever before
Cons * Not for the "friend less"
Recommended it? Yes

I played this game because a friend of mine was doing a Pokemon documentary and I wanted to see if there was anything to appeal to older gamers outside the target market. That was my motivation yet in this review I'll also consider the primary objective: kiddies.

Pros Great gameplay, cool moves, cool new Pokemon, cool new features!
Cons You are not allowed to buy stones to evolve your Pokemon.
Recommended it? Yes

The big Pokemon craze started back in 1998 here in America. It started with the television show, then the Red/Blue versions of the video game came out. Those two were hits. Everyone loved them, and after they beat them, they wanted other versions, or parts. Well, about a year after that, came... Read full review »

Pros The new pokemon add to the excitement of Pokemon Silver!
Cons You cannot battle your friends who have pokemon Blue/Red/Yellow.
Recommended it? Yes

Out of all the pokemon games, I think Silver was the best. I own Red/Blue/Yellow/Silver, and I have seen Gold. Some of the improvements include: graphics (much more colorful), music (there is a radio that enables music change!), many more NEW pokemon, rare pokemon are actually challenging, a little...

Pros A Bunch Of Stuff
Cons Can't Catch Mewto, Articuno, Zapdos or Moltres; Takes A Looooooong Time
Recommended it? Yes

This game is great. I mean, whoever came up with the idea of Pokemon was a dang genius. This is what the Japanese are absolutely great at. I bought this game yesterday, witch was May 3. Now, you may be asking 'What does this guy know'. Well, FYI, I played this game 'till 2 o'clock in the morning... Read full review »

Image my children's surprise on Christmas morning when they received not only Pokemon Gold but Silver also.... Now "I" know both games are kinda the same but to children they are 2 different creatures.

Pros Came with the Game boy!!
Cons Not compatible with Pokemon Stadium
Recommended it? No

My son has had the game Pokemon Stadium for awhile now, and I noticed one day that you can't use all the features of the game without a game boy version of pokemon. I found a really good buy (at costco) on a gameboy color that came with the pokemon silver game and a guide book. I bought it thinking... Read full review »

I was trying so hard to kick my Pokemon habit. I have been a fan since before the whole phenomenon hit the U.S. and became mainstream entertainment.

It was very hard. Seeing as I had a lot of the games for both Game Boy and Nintendo 64, along with stuffed animals, bedsheets, movies, CD's,... Read full review »

Pokemon Silver is a really great game, and a great buy. It is a little more exciting than Red version. Your able to face brand new trainers, and cool new pokemon. You will be able to do quite bit more in Silver version. For instance, a cell phone and radio. You visit new places since you start off... Read full review »

Pros Many more pokemon, New powerups, better item system and better items
Cons Too much of a need for HMs

This game is much better than the original. There are many new pokemon and two different types. There are new places to go and a new way of doing almost everything except the old fighting system.

The game starts 3 years from the older of the two games. You are a completely new person... Read full review »

Pros It's okay and it does take longer to beat.
Cons Is mostly the same as the older games.
Recommended it? Yes

This game is fun and may seem like a whole new game, but it's not. You would think that it would be like an up-grade except the pokemon still just make noises. You would think that now they you say the noises and names they use on the show. There are a few new things but there not all very... Read full review »

My 7 year old daughter received this version from "Santa" this year and cannot put it down. She has the red and yellow version and according to her "this is the best one they made".

Pros Great Programming, excellent RPG.
Cons certain events in the game only happen on certain days.
Recommended it? Yes

Well, to start this, let me just say that I've only owned the game for about a week. I find it to be an excellent example of an RPG. I have yet to try the gold version, but I don't plan on buying it. The game sells in stores at anywhere from $25 to $35. I found Wal-Mart to be the cheapest though... Read full review »

I truly did my best to avoid Pokemon. After all, as a mom, I know well the dangers of bringing anything Pokemon into the house with a seven-year-old: immediate addiction, and an amazingly huge desire to 'catch them all' - both of which are hard on the pocketbook.

But I surrendered to the... Read full review »

If you've played the red and/or blue versions and are a pokemon freak, chances are, you've been anticipating this. I'm sorry to dissapoint you poke fans, but this is lacking compared to the first ones. First of all, I didn't like the world (where you travel outside of battle) as much as the firsts...

Pros Looks awesome in color
Cons The sound is always the same in battles
Recommended it? Yes

Pokemon Silver is a great sequel to Red/Blue. I got this game because I was addicted to the original games. It takes the same concept (catch and fight) and adds much more to it. There are many new gadgets for you to find, pokemon to catch, people to meet, and more. The best addition is 150 or so... Read full review »
