New art and features

Clearer scans from CoroCoro have recently surfaced, revealing and clarifying more information on Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. They include new game screenshots, events, artworks and more.

As reported the past two days, new artworks for the characters Professor Elm, Silver and the female Team Rocket Grunt were revealed. The more complete scan adds the updated artwork of the male Team Rocket Grunt to the list. The Pokédex has also been redesigned. Two models are shown; pink for the female character and red for the male character.

The touch screen will be more utilized in the games. There are screenshots which show the newly designed Pokédex, PC Box and Pokémon Status screen which use the touch screen more in navigation. The redesigned interface of the bag also utilizes the same feature.

A new artwork of the map of Johto was also shown in the background. It confirms that players can head east towards Kanto and it also shows through Route 28 and Mt. Silver. It also shows a new area west of the National Park. An artwork for Ecruteak City is also shown, including the Tin and Brass Towers.

More game screenshots were seen, such as the interior of Professor Elm's laboratory and Slowpoke Well, Cherrygrove Town, Ruins of Alph and the Johto Radio Tower.

Screenshots of Steelix, Wobbuffet and Kecleon following the player can also be seen. Trainers can talk to their Pokémon any time to know what they feel, similar to Pokémon Yellow, though it was only exclusive to the starter Pokémon of the player, and doesn't show a dialogue between the Pokémon and its Trainer. CoroCoro mentions that all 493 Pokémon are capable of following players.

The scans also confirm the in-game events involving Groudon, Kyogre and Rayquaza, and Cynthia and Arceus. It also mentions that the Pikachu-colored Pichu will trigger an event featuring the Notched-ear Pichu in the Ilex Forest.

Pre-orders for the games begin on July 4th. Players who pre-order HeartGold or SoulSilver will get a Ho-Oh or Lugia figure, respectively, or an Arceus figure if both games were pre-ordered.

A clearer image featuring Jirachi has also appeared. It confirms that the Tanabata event Jirachi will be available for download in Diamond, Pearl and Platinum from June 19 to July 17, similar to the Pikachu-colored Pichu. It is a Level 5 Jirachi holding a Liechi Berry with the moves Wish, Confusion, Rest and Draco Meteor, a move exclusive for Dragon-type Pokémon through move tutor. It will be a Wi-Fi event at DS Download Stations and Nintendo Zone areas in Japan. The Jirachi is said to unlock something once traded to HeartGold or SoulSilver.

Lastly, another scan shows more features of the PokéWalker. It also shows how HeartGold and SoulSilver will look like when a Pokémon is going to be sent to it.
