During the most recent Pokemon-focused Nintendo Direct, they announced towards the end that Pokemon Gold and Silver will be rereleased for the 3DS Virtual Console. Similar to how Red and Blue came out a while back, the 2nd gen Pokemon games from the Gameboy Color will come out with Pokemon Bank support. The pair of games will release on September 22, the same day as Pokken Tournament DX.
Personally, I’m pretty excited about this. I never thought I would play much of Pokemon Yellow when it released on 3DS at the time, but I actually ended up getting really into it and beating it. Now, I’m just hungry for what many people say is the best Pokemon game, so I’m looking forward to it.
