In {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, players receive gifts based on the points on their [[Blue Card]] as opposed to choosing what to purchase with these points, as was the case in {{2v2|Gold|Silver}}. Points went down in the earlier games after buying items - something which the [[Generation IV]] remakes did not have.
