Pokémon Gold & Silver in the US is just around the corner (Fall 2000). However, some of Nintendo's key partners have already gotten information of some of the various Pokémon Gold & Silver things.
Fortunately for me, I know a couple of people who work at WotC. I was able to convince them to give me a sneak peak(achu) at some of the new Gold & Silver stuff they have cooking at WotC. The first thing they were able to show me were some Pokémon Gold & Silver badges for the Pokémon TCG Leagues.
