CoroCoro scan

Today, recieved scans of the June issue of CoroCoro. The scans reveal more information about Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. As seen on the scan, there will be updated Ken Sugimori artwork for Gold and the Generation II Pokémon who haven't received one yet, as the stock art for the Pokémon no longer matches the modern artwork of the three other generations. Instead of redesigning Kris, the female player character of Pokémon Crystal, a new female character was created.

The scan also shows the outside of Sprout Tower and the Slowpoke Well. An item similar to the PokéGear can be seen as well, one for males and the other for females.

As seen on Pokémon Sunday's video, the Pokémon chosen at the start will follow players. Other information regarding this is currently unknown. Below one of the screenshots depicting this shows what will appear on the touch screen as well.

The scan also reveals the Pikachu-colored Pichu obtainable for those who have pre-ordered tickets for the twelfth movie will also play a role in HeartGold and SoulSilver, similar to Regigigas in Platinum. It apparently activates an event within Ilex Forest once transferred.
