This here is the full Pokédex for the US version of Pokémon Gold/Silver.
There was a bit of confusion about the release of this game, as it came out
a week early(In most places, anyway.  Damn you to hell, infernal, anal, Grants
Pass Wal*Mart manager!  Daaaaamn yooooooou!).  Interestingly, Gold and Silver
each sport their own version of Pokédex data, and I have labled which version
which text is from.  Anyway, here's all the data for your enjoyment. :)
