I have Crystal. I guess Crystal can be considered to be somewhat rare, even in used game stores. I actually got mine from a friend who was finished with the game.

I've only ever seen one copy of it, personally. Granted, not many people I knew as a kid admitted to playing Pokemon.

I did own a copy of Crystal, but it went missing somewhere around the house. It's weird to realize how many Pokemon games I've lost throughout the years, and how many copies of each I went through, haha.

i have a crystal. i got it for christmas (the one we just had) and i like it better because i like the cartridge, i like Kris, and defiantely the animations. i even changed the battery because when i got it, it stopped saving the next day. but even though i changed the battery, mine won't even turn on. it shows the gameboy *ding* and even the nintendo sign perfectly but won't boot up the game. the screen goes white. im thinking that i left the screw out because it was such a pain getting the screw out so i was like "i'll tape it together" it worked after that but i tried booting it up today and it wont turn on. i started crying and my parents started laughing. they don't understand how since i fixed it and it still wont work, that shatters me. anyone got anything? pointer? tips and tricks? please i really wanna play it,

I've never had Crystal myself, however I've watched playthroughs of it, and one of my old friends owned it. I remember being fascinated by the focus on Suicune, since it'd always been my favourite of the trio. I don't remember if that was after I'd caught one in my Silver version, but that'd just always been the case. Apart from a few changes and additions here and there, it isn't too different though, so don't think I'd ever really get it. But that's the case with every third version I guess, haha.

One thing I specifically remember though, was that they'd fixed the cloning glitch. Or at least made it harder to do. Basically, we'd often do battles where we cloned one specific Pokemon to have 6 of them in our party (always did that with my Typhlosion), however my friend wasn't able to do that with her Crystal, so we had to trade them all over to mine and do it from there. hngg effort. So yeahh, I kinda disliked Crystal because of that. Silly kid :D

Well, I have all the 8-bit main series games except Gold, but I have Pinball and a GB Printer to make up for that.
Crystal is nice in being the only Pokemon game in a GBC cartridge — rare or not, it's relatively unique. My particular copy seems somewhat remarkable in that the original battery still works.

I'd bet the Japanese Red and Blue are both rarer than Green; practically no one (in the West) ever mentions them or even seems aware of them, so perhaps they're less likely to be sought by collectors, leadng more be discarded.

I still have my Pokemon Crystal - But I'm unsure if it still works, still saves or not. Might try it on my Old GBA SP, since I already traded in my GBC years ago.

Looking for a scripter desperately for Pokemon Dark Nebula. If you
would like to help, drop me a PM or VM.
It's a Romhack btw.

Yup, I got it for Christmas the year it came out. I played as my sister since it was the first time you could choose a female player character and I had already played as myself in Silver, which had a similar story. It was probably the closest I'd ever gotten to completing the Pokédex and then my cousin overwrited the game and I cried for days. I don't think I've completed the game on that cartridge since, haha.

I had a physical copy for about a decade until it stopped saving. I have it on an emulator now.

I still have my copy of Crystal, and I'm pretty sure the battery is doing fine! I know the batteries on my Gold and Silver are good because I just replaced them.

My first game was Pokemon Blue version but at some point in time I have had a copy of all the American versions of the games pass through my hands at some point. My parents actually bought my Crystal version but I was still young even after having it for a year or so and sold it in order to save up for the Gameboy Advanced SP. It's a bit saddening but right at this moment I currently own Silver Gold Red and Yellow version, so I'm happy.

Crystal was the first Pokémon game that I ever owned. I had played Red and Gold at my friends house when Gen II came out. Then I saved up to buy my own Gameboy Advance, and I bought one that came with Crystal. I was so happy that they had that deal! I lost that Gameboy and Crystal though. I really wish I could find them, for collective purposes.

I still have Crystal. Probably doesn't save anymore, but, hey, that's what speedruns are for.
