Talk:Pokémon Crystal Version

A glitch...? Or just my game?

Helloz, me again people. I remember this like it was yesterday, i was playing Pokémon Crytsal, and i can say hand on my heart i've never cheated on my Crystal Cartrage, but anyway. I saved the game, turned it off, went to play it a day later and my gender had switched from the girl to the guy. But my name was now "Kris" instead of "Lydia" (thats what i believe i called myself). I was like....what the hell...? So any answers? Takoto タコト| サソデイ = 愛 11:15, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Kris is the automatic name for the character. I guess it just reverted back to itDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits)) 01:33, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
The default name for the guy is Chris Snugglefox (talk) 02:38, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

Possible trivia

I don't know if this is notable enough to be trivia, but if I'm not mistaken, Crystal is the game which requires trading with the most different versions to complete the regional Pokedex, as it needs to trade with Red, Blue, Gold AND Silver. Just wondering if this is thought to be trivia worthy? Gastly's mama 20:42, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Well....It makes sense to me. Go ahead if you wishDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits)) 01:25, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
D/P/Pt require D, P, Pt, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 01:31, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
Apparently the only non event/legendary pokemon not available in DP are Tangela and TropiusDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits)) 01:32, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Groudon And Registeel

I've seen videos of peolpe playing Crystal, and they've seen pokémon like Groudon and Registeel. Are these pokémon in the games programing, or do they "Create them" in the game? 'ŚĥîΠŶPî₭₳ĉĥŭ' 23:59, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

They hacked it. PH1R3STRIKE 00:00, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
Ok thanks 'ŚĥîΠŶPî₭₳ĉĥŭ' 00:02, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
Hacked, or post-edited the graphics. In one word, fake. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 00:03, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

I think this article needs a cleanup. For example, remove the Kanto section from it, it's not like it changed from GS. Pokemon lover 16:00, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Be assertive. You can clean it up if you wish. -Sketch 16:06, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
OK, I didn't clean it up yet because I was trying to avoid future edit undos or edit wars but if I'm allowed to, then that is what I'll do. Pokemon lover 17:35, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Glicthy Crystal

When I was playing Crystal, I noticed that my mailbox was full with ????GREEN???? and covered the whole screen. Then the Trainer School in Kanto gave me the same thing I went to battle there.When the battle began, the trainer sent out a level 0 Primeape. Then it frezzes. What do guys think it is? Dying battery, bad save file?--Spritemaster 02:37 24 August 2009 (UTC)

"..." in battles

I remember that only in Pokemon Crystal, whenever a person during a battle said "...", these points didn't appear aligned with the border (as other characters), but a little higher. This is what I mean. Look at the "..." said during battle. This doesn't happen when you talk to trainers or stuff in the overworld, though. --Dr. James 15:49, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

A little late but thanks for pointing that out. I think it's a leftover from the Japanese script, since the ellipsis is aligned higher in the Japanese versions. It was likely a lapse on NoA's part. ;-) Pokemon lover 21:32, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Plot error

The plot section says that the player is "known by default as Gold" and refers to the player as Gold throughout. Not so if you are playing as a girl! Should the plot section be changed to include Kris, especially considering that this is her debut game? --AndyPKMN 20:21, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Battery Death

When the battery dies is it just unable to save or does it erase all data?SONICバリヤ 03:53, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Both. Always. With any game. Not really related to the content of the article though. --ZestyCactus 04:39, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
I said that because I was curious if my Crystal was defective, but I should have asked on the forums. I'm sorry.SONICバリヤ 06:16, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Growlithe availability

In "Aestethic changes" the article says "Extra grass was added to the route west of Violet City, and in this grass, Growlithe can be caught, allowing players to acquire a Fire-type Pokémon much earlier than in other versions", yet in Growlithe the Pokémon is said to be available in the same area, at a higher level.

Clock reset

Found the information on TCRF and tested it myself. It is still working just as in GS. It does not require any external means to access either. I have a 30 second video as proof, but not sure how to share it. Neal Cruco (talk) 03:33, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

The title of the page should stay the same.

It has been suggested that the title of this article be renamed "Pokémon Crystal." I'm okay with the suggestion, but even though other territories don't use the word "version," North America does, so we should refer to it by its full North American name. Thank you.

Alternative japanese boxart?

pic Japanese cover featuring pichu,but I can't find any other info about it,except from this Italian page where I took the image from. - unsigned comment from 95girl (talkcontribs)

Please link to images rather than embedding them. As for the image itself, I think it's safer to assume that any random image you find online is fake unless proven otherwise. The fact that you can't find any other information means we have no way of proving it's real. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 16:49, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

At best its a prerelease promo, but I suspect its fake. Some pirate probably made that boxart to appeal to the demand for a gen 2 yellow version Snugglefox (talk) 21:47, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Virtual Console Battle HUD Disappearing?

I know this happened in the Gold and Silver release, but when I was playing Crystal, I noticed that it worked properly and would be hidden during attacks. I have the English version from the US eShop, so can anyone else confirm if this is the case in other languages/regions? I didn't want to edit those two sentences out of the article completely if it is true in other versions. Dalton358 (talk) 19:39, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Oops, my bad (I wrote those sentences on the G&S page and copy-pasted them to the Crystal page) . Guess I didn't notice this change. I just tried it with the English and French versions from the EU eShop, and you're right. SaniOKh (talk) 19:56, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
It's no problem. I guess since that only happened with Gold and Silver it's a bug with those releases and not an intentional change. Dalton358 (talk) 20:24, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
