Pokemon GS Chronicles Premise
The story in Pokemon GS Chronicles is based on Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver. The player character begins by runnings errands for Professor Elm, which rewards you with a Pokemon. After choosing from one of three Pokemon, you are set free into the tall grass and the world at large. To become a Pokemon Champion, the player must explore collecting Pokemon, battling foes, and competing in gym tournaments.
Your mission as a Pokemon trainer is to explore the world and collect new Pokemon. Each one offers a unique battle type, combat moves, and designs. Exploring the tall grass can put you into a battle with a random Pokemon of that region in which you need to choose whether to fight or flee.
The revamped game features never before seen mechanics such as cutscenes, route changes, day/night cycles, and custom move sets. Also, the game features new puzzles, updated graphics, new trainer roasters, and Exp. Share. There is a ton to be explored in this new Pokemon experience that builds ontop of an already amazing game.
Pokemon GS Chronicles Main Characters
Ethan: Ethan is one of two protagonists to choose from. Although the official name in Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver is Ethan, the player can change their name if they choose. Ethan lives north of Cherrygrove City on Route 30. The starting Pokemon he can choose from are Cyndaquil, Totodile, or Chikorita.
Lyra: Lyra is the second playable protagonist in Pokemon GS Chronicles. Like Ethan, players can change their names to whatever they choose. She also lives north of Cherrygrove City on Route 30 and has the same starting Pokemon options. Whichever character the player chooses, the other character will appear in-game as a friend.
Team Rocket: Team Rocket is the antagonist of the Pokemon series. They are an organization in the Kanto and Johto regions. Their main purpose is to steal or capture rare Pokemon to sell them to. They have sent Pokemon off to their deaths before by selling them to cruel research organizations.
Professor Elm: Professor Elm is a resident Pokemon Professor and gives the player their first Pokemon. His specialization is in Pokemon evolution, which Professor Oak further explained and acclaimed. He is known for his scatterbrained and disorganized nature as he gets caught up in research.
Silver: Silver is the main rival of Ethan and Lyra. Players will first encounter Silver on the outskirts of Cherrygrove City. He will also make appearances throughout the game, testing the player to assess their strength and talent. Also, when choosing a starting Pokemon, Silver will always have the one that is strongest against their choice. So if the player chooses a fire-type Pokemon, Silver will have a water-type.
