The '''second generation''' of Pokémon games, sometimes known as the '''metal generation''', is the second set of Pokémon games to be released, best described as a {{wp|sequel}} to [[Generation I]]. Among older fans of the games, it is the most acclaimed of the generations, likely owing to this fact. It is much like Generation I before it, beginning in 1999 with the Japanese paired versions release of {{game|Gold and Silver|s}} (which were later remade in the form of {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}) and ending in 2001 with the North American release of {{game|Crystal}}. This generation also saw the release of [[Pokémon Stadium 2]].
Details in the handheld games reveal that the events of Generation II are most likely contemporaneous with the events of [[Generation IV]], much like [[Generation III]] was most likely contemporaneous with Generation I. Generation II occurs three years after Generation I.
