HeartGold & Soul Silver - Coverage Day 1

I have the game in my hands and as such, I have begun the coverage of the game. As usual, there is a discovery thread on the forums (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=411379), which I will be using to post every thing I see. I will also update here whenever I've got something worthy of making a page or a consolidation of the day's data. However, in addition to that, I am also going to post the major things here so be sure to keep checking back/ To respect the wishes of those who do not wish to have the game spoiled, I've posted it inside this JavaScript tab.

HeartGold & Soul Silver - Moveset Changes

With Special Thanks to Arty2 (http://www.legendarypokemon.net) for extracting, we now have all of the HGSS Movesets added to the DPtHGSS Pokédex (http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-dp/) and DPtHGSS Attackdex (http://www.serebii.net/attackdex-dp). A variety of Pokémon have movesets that differ from their DP or Platinum movesets so as such, I have also created a page that lists only the Moveset Changes. Click the picture to go to the page

HeartGold & Soul Silver - Pokémon Following

A small note, it would appear that the Pokémon that follow you will retain their shinyness when out of their Pokéball as demonstrated with this Gyarados. However, it is still unclear if it is just for the Gyarados & Pikachu Coloured Pichu or if it is for all Shiny Pokémon. We'll keep you aprised

Going to make a page detailling the encounters with the Rockets at some point. However, in the mean time, a new Rocket Executive has been revealed for the Mahogany Hideout. This executive is called Lambda and a female Executiver is also there in a double battle, teamed with Lance against her, called Athena. All the Rocket Executives are named after different types of real-life Rockets
