From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
For unknown reasons, two sets of game-exclusive Pokémon, Phanpy and its evolution Donphan, along with Teddiursa and its evolution Ursaring, were swapped between the Japanese and localized releases, with the former available in Japanese Gold and international Silver and with the latter available in Japanese Silver and international Gold. However, this situation did not occur with the remakes, HeartGold and SoulSilver.
The Korean versions of Gold and Silver do not have this change.
- 1: Exclusive to Silver in the Japanese and Korean versions.
- 2: Exclusive to Gold in the Japanese and Korean versions.
