I still have my Pokemon Crystal cartridge. Although I don't play it since I emulate it instead, I still try to keep the game in good condition because it has given me many memories during elementary school (in college now). I have, in the form of an actual cartridge, at least 1 version of each generation. I'm not a collector or anything but these are what I bought when they first came out and afterwords I just keep them in a memory box thingy under my bed lol.

Yes, I still have them all. Gold, Silver and Crystal.

When the battery died in them, I bought new ones because I thought they were faulty. I know own two versions of each one. I don't regret it though. I shall take them to the grave!

I do believe I still have my Crystal's cartridge somewhere in my house. It's gotten quite wonky since the last time I played it - my bag's key items always got corrupted and everything will disappear everytime I get to Goldenrod City, and then my save file will get corrupted soon after. :c I haven't seen that thing for quite a long time.. I doubt it even works anymore.

I still have my Gold version though it's all glitchy and the battery's dead. Technically I never had Crystal but in a way I used to. My friend let me borrow his copy just so I could get him past Burnt Tower and Ruins of Alph. He was terrified of the music in those place...for some reason. Then when I got past those point in the game he just told me I can keep it for a bit longer until I beat the Elite Four. I ended up giving it back to him four years later with a glitch where it was always Wednesday at 12:37pm. XD So I never had a copy of my own but hopefully I eventually buy one of my own.

I know where my Silver and my Crystal still are. As for my Gold version I had last saw it under my dresser but has disappeared since. Alas, I can be completely certain that it is not there anymore or anywhere in my room due to recent changes so I suppose it's gone forever.

I don't have these anymore. When my cousin gave me a cartridge of Silver(i think), i was busy with Leaf Green and lost it. Which remembers me that i should emulate it.

I still have my Silver! I'm sure it still works because the last time I tried it, it still worked. I'm still keeping it for nostalgia, and collection purposes. :)

I still have both my Gold and Silver, although neither of them work anymore :c

I had a Crystal version, but I lost it! I can't find it anywhere. Hopefully it is in my house somewhere, but I have been looking for years. If I really did lose it forever, I would be really upset.

I have always had two Gold for like forever and I managed to track down all the others too. They remain some of my favourite games today.

I still have Pokemon Silver, and yes, it still works perfectly fine in terms of it's internal battery. I just hope it won't die out one day. Like what happened with my Red T_T

Now, why would I part with one of my pokemon games? Especially gold, silver or crystal?

EDIT: I recently had to change the battery in gold and crystal, and almost 2 years ago I had to change my silver battery. I have another copy of silver with the battery still working.

I still have my Gold, Silver, and Crystal. I've already checked the first two and their batteries have died. I had junk Pokemon there since I traded my good Pokemon to the Stadium 2 game pak or to Crystal. I am reluctant to check Crystal because I kinda want the memories to go on forever. I know I would be devastated if I confirm that the battery died. Crystal has its original save file - never did a new game on it.

My Gold and Crystal have corrupted save files - Gold won't even start to play and I'm pretty sure Crystal's save file deleted itself. I haven't checked because it's pretty sad, I really loved those games.

I have Yellow still, but I've never gotten past Brock. By the time it takes me to catch something and grind it up to be able to beat him, I'd have to put the game down to go do something else, and I've learned that the save file only actually saves about half the time. The game freezes every time I bump the DS.

Yikes. Oh well. =/

I was lucky to have found my catridge of Silver about a week ago. I'm sure the battery must need changing though lol.

I still have my original cartridge of Crystal somewhere. I think my sister is using it now. I recently bought a Silver version and I'm really happy, because I lost my original when I moved about 4 years or so ago.
