I went to my local Walmart, looking for some stuff for my Mom's Bday. We look, and I ask my dad if I can go to the electronics, and he says okay. I go, looking for something to play, and I find a little Gameboy Color in the cornor. After remembering that some stores had G/S, I rush to it. I turn the thing on, praying it has batteries. I notice some G/S flyers around, and get my hopes up. I look at the screen. Blah, I think, its just R/B/Y. But then, Pokemon! Gold Version!!
Wow, I get real excited, and I played for ten minuets!
(BTW, this was my first time EVER playing G/S in english, japanese, whatever)

I must say, I am impressed. Nintendo made the graphics cool, for a Gameboy. The battle screens are alot nicer, more layed out. The EXP bar is soooo useful, and I like that little "Spark" when you gain a level. The Pokegear is a nice addition, and is neat. I didn't get to play far, infact, I just got to Cherrygrove City. For those who care, here is what I can confirm(which is not much):

"Seeds" are Berries
Totodile learns Rage at level 7

Okay, and here are just some stuff, thats not really much info, but you might like to know...

The Harden attack is different, instead of a Square coming into the pokemon, the pokemon turns black, and a little white streak comes down it. It looks preatty neat.
Scratch looks different. Instead of just a swipe, it does that and has a few little swipes after it.
String Shot is changed. The little string comes out like usual, but then it wraps up the defending pokemon!

G/S is so cool. I can't wait till Monday!

I wish I had a good English rom also. Mine isnt fully translated and has some weird characters in place of the words. Oh well, I might as well just wait until Monday.

I'm kinda suprised my local Wal-Mart also had Majora's Mask and Gold/Silver. They also had a much wider selection of GB accessories. Wal-Mart must be improving now that the new management is starting to learn what the consumers want.

there are working rom links at http://pagina.de/jl-picard Anytime a new CGB rom comes out, this site has it. The only downside is the website is in spanish (not the roms) (Just click the 600-699 link, pokemon gold and silver are at the bottom.)
