pokemon SoulSilver version review

Pokemon SoulSilver Version Software OnlyBeen released recently the latest pokemon series games Pokemon SoulSilver and Pokemon HeartGold in the DS, the remakes for the old Pokemon Gold/ Pokemon Silver Versions on the Game boy Color.
i'v actually played the original games on the GBC and was so exited to see those remakes coming out to the DS.
as i'v finished the Gold version first on the GBC, i thought i will go with the soulsilver for the DS, and so i got it.
There is a few addition to this game that makes it different than any previews pokemon games you have played before:
1-There is the new accessory the pokewalker, which allows you to transfer one pokemon to it, and by holding it while you walk you can collect watts that allows you to play mini-games such as catching pokemon or finding items, it also makes your pokemon more friendlier with you + it rises it's level by one every time you take it to a walk.
2- you get to have one starter pokemon from each region, which are from the Johto Starters: Chikorita, Cyndaquil and Totodile, Kanto Starters: Bulbasaur,  Charmander and Squirtle and Hoenn Starters:Treecko, Torchic and Mudkip.
3- when you play, one of your pokemon follows you while you are walking (remember pikachu in pokemon yellow?).
well, the story as usual is that you find your self in a journey to become a pokemon trainer, and in a mission to collect pokemon and fill your pokedex, that have never changed in any pokemon game before, there is your rival, there is the eight pokemon gym leaders, in this game there is up to 16 gym leader as that you play in 2 regions the Johto and the Kanto region, there is also your final destination to prove yourself worthy of being a pokemon trainer the pokemon league, there is also the legendary pokemons that you can not tolerate not getting them on your team.
the music is just the same, maybe enhanced a little, but it's your usual pokemon BGM.
the graphics are the same, there is one addition thought, which is the introduction background image that you see whenever you enter a new area, i really liked this small addition, even thought it's not anything fancy.
the interface for the game has changed drastically, your pokedex has a net pokemon show screen, and in the touch screen rests your menu screen , i still have some hard time getting used to it, since this is the first time that the menu screen has change this much, but still it's suitable for the DS touch screen.
You can expect all the Wi-Fi events that was introduced to the previews D/P and platinum in this one too,exchange your pokemon, complete your pokedex, and become the best pokemon master there is.
i'm definitly going to get Pokemon HeartGold Version to.

looking foreword to the next pokemon generation, i don't know if you heard about it, but a new pokemon game is in the making ^_^.
