'''Pokémon HeartGold Version''' (Japanese: '''ポケットモンスター {{Ruby|金|ハートゴールド}}''' ''Pocket Monsters HeartGold'') and '''Pokémon SoulSilver Version''' (Japanese: '''ポケットモンスター {{Ruby|銀|ソウルシルバー}}''' ''Pocket Monsters SoulSilver'') are paired [[Generation IV]] [[remake]]s of the [[Generation II]] games {{game|Gold and Silver|s}}.
Much like how {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} revisited the [[Generation I]] story of [[Kanto]], HeartGold and SoulSilver retell the story of [[Johto]], with the player's starting town being [[New Bark Town]]. While the games feature several expansions in key areas, the overall plot follows the same direction as the original {{2v2|Gold|Silver}}. Some aspects exclusive to {{v2|Crystal}} are also included. Like how FireRed and LeafGreen could link up with {{3v2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}} to complete the Pokédex by trading regionally exclusive Pokémon, HeartGold and SoulSilver can link up with {{3v2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}} to obtain Pokémon unavailable in Johto and Kanto (such as {{DL|Starter Pokémon|Sinnoh|the Sinnoh starters}}) and vice versa.
