    Best viewed on some text editor that displays at least 79 chars/line...as if
    there was any other kind. :)
    
    
    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. :)

    Nintendo/Gamefreak/Creatures, of course, for all this Pikarific nonsense.
    Thanks to certain individuals for pointing me in the direction of the ROMs.
    Thanks to John Newbold for calling to my attention mass typos.
    
    Hello to Karma Chameleon of Pokémon Daily, and all the RPGamer Pokéboarders.
    ^_^
    
    Thanks to GameFAQs of course, for being THE most comprehensive and complete
    gaming information site today.
    
    I suppose this is where I'd plug my website, if I had the wit and motivation
    to make one out of the Geocities account I have been using the last couple
    years as a placeholder for message board defaults graphics.  Being as it is,
    I'll just throw out a few URLs I regularly slink around at.

     whatever you know about Pokémon today was probably handed down to you from
     us, one way or another.  ^_^
