Pokemon New Gold Era Details and More
The story takes place 100 years after the events of Gen 2. You start in Goldenrod City where it is noticeably developed compared to how it was to the old games.
It follows the usual formula where you have to get your Trainer to catch Pokemon, beat Trainers, and be the best of all.
The hack features three different starters namely Mankey, Natu, and Houndour. The typing chart is basically Dark, Psychic, and Fighting where they counter one out of the other.
While it is 100 years in the future, the map stays the same. Locations have updated looks, and the order of Gyms you fight is different. Updated characters and Moves are also in play as well as some of the standard Gen 2 features.
