Pokémon Crystal is the enhanced remake to Pokémon Gold and Silver. This makes it part of the second-generation of Pokémon games. It featured the Battle Tower, and also focused on the Pokémon Suicune (featured on the game's boxart). A remake of the Gold and Silver games was released in Japan in September 12, 2009 for the Nintendo DS and in March 14, 2010, known as Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. In addition, this was the first Pokémon game that allowed the player to play as either a boy or a girl and has Kurt able to make multiple Poké Balls at once. At the start of the game you receive a PokéGear, gear that has your mobile and Poké Balls in it.

Starter Pokémon

The starters you can receive are Cyndaquil, Chikorita, and Totodile. Like all Pokémon, they have different personalities.


  • The player can choose between a boy or girl protagonist.
  • The foe Pokémon exhibit a short animation after entering battle.
  • The Unown have their backstory expanded, revealing a message after their puzzles are solved.
  • The protagonist can obtain an egg from the Day Care.
  • Goldenrod City has the PCC where a Japanese player can interact with other players though the Mobile Adapter. An event involving the PCC allowed the protagonist to get a Celebi.
  • Buena holds a radio show where the listener wins points by listening for Buena's password. Going to the Radio Tower and giving her the right password would win the protagonist points that can be exchanged for prizes, one example being the Rare Candy.
  • Suicune now has a stronger presence in the plot. Suicune is not randomly encountered (opposed to Entei and Raikou). Instead, the protagonist has to look around Johto and encounter Suicune at certain points before meeting with Suicune in the Tin Tower. On your pursuit is Eusine, who is also looking for Suicune. Ectruteak City also gets more important in the plot.
  • After winning the Pokémon League, the protagonist can go to Olivine City and enter the Battle Tower, a facility where the protagonist battles a row of trainers under certain conditions.
