Pokémon: Crystal Version is the most up-to-date of Nintendo’s Pokémon games, but it isn’t exactly the sequel that fans have been anticipating. Similar to Pokémon Yellow and its Red/Blue brethren, Crystal is merely an update to the Gold and Silver versions that preceded it.

As such, those already knee-deep in the Gold/Silver series won’t find much of interest in Pokémon Crystal. However, if you have not already upgraded from the older Red/Blue/Yellow series, or you happen to be a total Pokémon neophyte, now is an excellent time to take the plunge.

Just like Gold and Silver before it, Pokémon Crystal offers 251 different Pocket Monsters to collect, trade, and battle. As a trainer en route to the Pokémon League, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and acquire a majority of these lovable animals–usually by searching in tall grass, hunting at night, or by breeding at the day care. Rare Pokémon–creatures so strong that you get only one shot to battle and capture them–can often be found hiding within ancient ruins or grazing in particular areas at various times throughout the week.

Although Pokémon Crystal theoretically includes the entire menagerie of Pokémon contained within both the Gold and Silver versions of the game, choices you make along the way can (and will) eliminate your chances of capturing specific monsters. Similarly, some Pokémon, such as Squirtle, Mewtwo, Charmander, and Bulbasaur, are exclusive to the older Red/Blue/Yellow series and are impossible to acquire via solitary means. For these reasons, if you intend to complete Prof. Oak’s Pokédex, trading between friends remains an essential aspect of the Pokémon phenomenon.
