Crystal (Japanese: クリスタル Crystal), or Chris (Japanese: クリス Crys) for short, is a Trainer from New Bark Town, Johto and one of the main characters of Pokémon Gold & Silver: The Golden Boys. She is based on the female player character in Crystal.


Chris first met Gold in Escape From The Mystery Forest! when she was stuck in Suicune's illusory forest while chasing a wild Dugtrio. Since then, they have traveled together. Chris can sometimes act stubborn and childish, which annoyed Gold at first. Despite that, he was able to make friends with her.


Chris considers herself an explorer first and a Trainer second, and likes to explore old ruins and mysterious locations. She makes several references to deities, which is a rare occurrence in any Pokémon media. She also seems to believe in superstitions like shooting stars.


Cyndaquil is Chris's first partner Pokémon.

Cyndaquil's known moves are Ember, Smokescreen, Quick Attack, and Flame Wheel.

It has also used Tri Attack by combining its attacks with Gold's Croconaw's and Pikachu's.
