Pokémon trainers around the world will be able to relive two of the most beloved entries in the popular franchise, Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver. To celebrate Lugia and Ho-Oh’s return to the Nintendo 3DS family, a launch trailer was released in a nostalgia-fueled video.

In Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver, players assume the role of a Pokémon trainer in the Johto region. Like its predecessors — Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue — the popular RPG titles allow you to choose from three starters: Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile. Once chosen, the player will explore the Johto region, face Team Rocket, collect badges, and inevitably defeat the Elite Four.

The Nintendo 3DS and 2DS version of Pokémon Gold and Silver will allow trainers to battle and trade their Pokémon with friends. However, those pesky link cables can be thrown in the trash because this can all be done wirelessly with the portable console.

The Pokémon Gold and Silver re-releases were announced during a Nintendo Direct earlier this month. This was revealed alongside a new trailer for the upcoming 3DS exclusives, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon which release November 17 later this year.

Pokémon Gold and Silver is available on the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS on September 22, 2017. Check out the nostaliga-laced trailer below:
