Or are you going to instead get it maybe months later when you get the urge to play? :)

Share your reasons!

yessssss of course i love gsc. i have silver already but um i mean honestly i'm still probably going to buy gold lmfao. i'll definitely buy crystal for sure, probably on my new 3DS since i got silver on my XL. i'm super excited to finally do the celebi thing too and have one in game!!! i've always wanted to use it in its native generation. so yeah i'm really stoked for this!

    Of course I plan on getting Crystal on day one! Just gotta load funds into my eShop account ahead of time (hopefully some time in early or mid January).

      Absolutely. I played through Silver just recently, but I enjoy Gen II so much that it's worth playing again.

        Getting it, maybe on or after release day, it's one of my top favorite pokemon games.

            I doubt I'm getting it on release, I finished Silver in November, so I'll probably end up bored quickly.

              Uh, hell yeah! Pokémon Crystal Version was my first ever Pokémon game. Heck, I'll probably buy it as soon as GameStop starts carrying those preorder cards in the replica Game Boy Color game boxes.

              For sure. I've been wanting to play Crystal for a while now and we still have to wait like another month for it's release and it's only $10 so I don't see the need to put it off till later.

                I find it hard back to go back after having played Polished Crystal, so no. Not to mention that I could replace my original cartridge's battery if I wanted.

                  I wouldn't buy Crystal, but I can't f** lose Celebi distribution, so I think my answer is actually yes

                    At least you still have your original cartridge. My dad sold my Game Boy Color and all my games without my knowledge to a GameStop three years ago. ;-;

                    But you do make a good point about Polished Crystal.

                      Eh, polished Crystal had to replace some Johto pokemon for the newer Pokemon which I personally couldn't stand.

                        True, but I believe that will be fixed eventually. I get your point in the meantime.

                          While I already purchased Gold earlier, I am seriously considering to buy Crystal as well.

                          As excited as I am, I dunno if I'll be buying it right away. Probably when I have more time since I know otherwise it'll sit around for a while. I still haven't finished Yellow or Gold, and the last thing I want is for Crystal to end up like that due to being busy, because I loooove this game

                          As of right now, yes, I will be getting it on release. I don't know if I'll play it right away though.

                          Absolutely! I have been waiting for this game to hit the eshop for YEARS. No way am I going to miss playing it right away!

                          I will not buy Crustal, only because I bought Gold. There is too many games that I want to buy righthh now so I will not spend money on Crystal since I haven't finished Gold yet (oops).

                          But I am sad. Crystal is my favorite game. If I knew Crystal was coming out I would have wait for it.

                          Already got Crystal preloaded, I'll start playing after I get the 16 badges in Gold. Though I'm planning on going through Crystal slower than Gold.

                            Well I preloaded the game but for some reason it still won't even let me play even though it's passed 12 eastern. Ugh.
