Trivia
** They are the only remakes with this distinction, as [[Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]] use an update of the opening from {{2v2|Ruby|Sapphire}}.
* HeartGold and SoulSilver include the {{pkmn|Champion}}s from each of the previous paired versions: {{ga|Blue}} from {{2v2|Red|Green}}, [[Lance]] from {{2v2|Gold|Silver}}, [[Steven Stone]] from {{2v2|Ruby|Sapphire}}, and [[Cynthia]] from {{2v2|Diamond|Pearl}}.
* To date, HeartGold and SoulSilver are the only pair of remakes to not gain any new types that weren't available at the time of their original versions. FireRed and LeafGreen gained the {{t|Dark}} and {{t|Steel}} types, which did not exist in [[Generation I]], while {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}} and {{g|[[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!}}]] both gained the {{t|Fairy}} type, which did not exist in either Generation I or {{gen|III}}.
* The credits of HeartGold and SoulSilver are the first to feature [[Gym Leader]]s, [[Elite Four]] members and [[villainous teams|villainous team]] members.
* The Pokédex entries for the Pokémon that existed in Gold and Silver are carried on over to HeartGold and SoulSilver, respectively, much as how FireRed used the entries from the Japanese Red and Green while LeafGreen used the entries from Blue.
