During the planning and development stages of Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver,CoroCoro magasine realeased some information about the upcomeing game includeing game sprites and locations. Everything in the artical was found in the real game witch a few modificatins and clean ups.

Prototype sprites

Before the game was released, there are pictures from CoroCoro Magazine that showed Silver's, Chikorita's, Pikachu's and Pikachu-colored Pichu's beta sprites. These were changed later on. There is also a beta back sprite of Ethan. His hair is slightly different and there is a symbol on his hat.

Beta screenshots also exist, one of the Slowpoke Well that instead shows a Team Rocket grunt standing where Proton is in the final version, as was the case in the original games, and another of the Mystri Stage in Sinjoh Ruins that shows the three circles being identical instead of three different colors in the final version. Althought many players who saw this artical thought the ruins to be removed, they are still in the fame codeing acsessable if the player brings an event Arceus to the ruins of alph.

Also, Cyndaquil's sprite in the intro is different to its front sprite in the main game. This may be something in the beta version that was forgotten to be edited in the intro.

Prototype items

  • The Photo Album was going to be a key item, but the feature was included in the PC instead.
  • Data, including a sprite, exists for the Slowpoketail. It can be obtained through hacking but has no function.
