    So You Want to Be a Pokémon Master? - Johto

    Next in the series of Pokémon games is the Johto based games, Gold and Silver. One major difference with these compared to other games in the Pokémon franchise is that there are sixteen badges to collect as after you finish your journey through Johto, you gain access to the Kanto region.

    Before the now-pulled mobile game Sonic Runners was officially released, somebody hacked it and revealed that Tikal would be a playable character. Sonic fans were absolutely ecstatic to hear the news and immediately took to YouTube to upload videos with her leaked artwork and gameplay.
