* Much like Kanto's was for its remakes, Johto's Pokédex has been redesigned. Unlike Kanto's remakes, which contained the same [[List of Pokémon by Kanto Pokédex number|regional Pokédex]] as the originals, [[List of Pokémon by New Pokédex number|the original regional Pokédex]] for Johto has been [[List of Pokémon by Johto Pokédex number|slightly altered]], including five [[Generation IV]] evolutions for Pokémon found in Johto.
* An image of certain locations, like in {{v2|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, appears when entering the location. Some of these images change depending on the time of day while others change the image of the Pokémon obtainable at the location on the image at random.
* {{tc|Team Rocket Grunt}}s are redesigned once again. The Team Rocket {{tc|Executive}}s are also redesigned from Generation II, with four new ones appearing: [[Archer]], [[Ariana]], [[Petrel]], and [[Proton]]. Like how [[Team Galactic]]'s {{tc|Commander}}s followed a planetary naming scheme, the Executives are all named for various real-world rockets. Archer would go on to reappear in [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]].
* The Tin Tower is renamed the [[Bell Tower]].
* {{p|Lugia}} and {{p|Ho-Oh}} each have their own unique battle music, while the [[legendary beasts]] each use differently remixed versions of their battle theme from {{game|Crystal}}.
It also retains the same ability to connect to [[Pokémon Battle Revolution]] as its predecessors.
These games are fully compatible with [[List of Pokémon with form differences|the new Pokémon formes]] introduced in {{game|Platinum}}, those from [[List of Pokémon with form differences#Giratina{{p|Giratina]]}}, [[List of Pokémon with form differences#Shaymin{{p|Shaymin]]}} and [[List of Pokémon with form differences#Rotom{{p|Rotom]]}}, but are still not able to export these special formes into [[Pokémon Battle Revolution]], as those formes were not programmed into that game.
===Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection===
[[File:Pokéwalker communication.png|thumb|350px|Communication between a Pokéwalker and a [[Nintendo DSi]] with HeartGold or SoulSilver]]
This pedometer accessory was bundled with the games, and features different ways to interact with them.
A player can send a [[Pokémon]] to the [[Pokéwalker]] to make it gain [[experience]] with steps counted on the device. Pokémon caught and items found can also be transferred to HeartGold and SoulSilver.
The game's cartridges and Pokéwalker both feature an infrared transceiver to communicate with each other.
* {{p|Froslass}}'s entry in SoulSilver's (but not HeartGold's) Pokédex has a typo where the period at the end of the sentence is missing.
* A second nearly unnoticeable typo appears in both versions during [[Professor Oak]]'s congratulations speech, when the player has a completely filled [[National Pokédex]] (minus event Pokémon). One of his sentences, "Meeting you is something '''l''' will cherish all my life long!", uses a lowercase L instead of a capital I.
* On page 6 the North American manual for HeartGold, it is mentioned that "In order to catch all the Pokémon in the Johto region and complete your Pokédex, you must trade with the ''Pokémon '''HeartGold''' Version''" when it should say "with the ''Pokémon '''SoulSilver''' Version''". This error is not present in the SoulSilver manual, which correctly identifies the correct opposite game.
