My first pokemon game ever was crystal version. I still have it albeit the battery doesnt work and the sticker is missing. My friend recently told me crystal version was rare and I thought about it... the only real copy ive seen is my own.

Do any of y'all have crystal version? How rare is it?

    Crystal is rare? Didn't it sell like hot cakes?

    I still have mine (and I changed the battery last year, so it's fully functional again ).

    I work at mcdonalds. Hotcakes sell very well

    I dont know ive never done any research on it but my friend said it's the rarest of the main series pokemon games. Not sure if its true or not. Maybe I should look into it.

    I don't think Crystal is that rare. It sold very well, probably depending where you live it's harder to get. But imo, I think Emerald is now more valuable than Crystal.

      I have Crystal. It's my favorite of the three. I actually had Silver first, but my brother dropped it in the toilet, so we got a used Crystal instead. The battery on Crystal lasted almost eight years and I got it replaced when the battery started showing signs of dying. I have my Crystal back along with Gold and two Silvers [one doesn't work] and now I have my own Miltank.

      I also have my old Pokemon from Crystal in a Stadium 2 box until I get enough Pokemon to withdraw them.

      Crystal was the best of Gen II!

      ...Didn't Crystal sell a lot of copies? I think it seems rare now because it's old and not being produced anymore.

      Dropping a game cartridge in the toilet shouldnt break it... I dont think. Did you try drying it off?

          I have a Crystal game. My first GBC is as dead as a doornail, and the first game with it. I have re-bought both, though.

          By the way, Pinta77, that is one of the best avatar photos, man. Respect.

            Well, we dried it off and it started crashing and deleting save data totally at random in the span of a few hours.. The screen would flicker a lot even though Yellow worked fine. My parents thought it would be easier to get a used Crystal than to fix the broken Silver. I was seven so I didn't get much say in it. Got a Crystal out of it, anyway.

            Someone dropped my Silver version down the drain and somehow we managed to obtain it, however I wasn't able to successfully save from that point and only always had the New Game or Options.

            But yeah I do still have my Crystal version! It must be about 13 years old now but it's still in good working condition.. so I believe.

              I have a Crystal version, though not one I got when I was a kid. I picked it up off of Ebay for $15 I think, and replaced the battery on my own. This was about a year ago. I still have my Gold and Silver versions from when I was a kid though, and replaced the batteries in those as well. They all still work on my ancient GBC, but prefer to play them in my GBA SP because of the lit screen. I still play them from time to time and have ancient link cables to do trade evolutions between cartridges. Sometime I'm thinking about getting a Yellow cartridge and try to complete an old school Pokedex. Basically if I need a douse of nostalgia I bust those out and have a blast doing it.

              I don't think I'll ever be able to grow out of GSC.

              At one point in 2005, I had three Crystals. My twin brother and I each got one for Christmas. My dad found the third game w/ Gameboy on the ground at work (apartment complex). The trainer was in Olivine with Quilava. I finished their game, traded over the Pokemon, and restarted. I grew bored with it, though.

              So, I gave the third Crystal to my best friend in middle school. We've separated since, as she didn't go to my high school. She's not one to use Facebook, either.

              My Crystal still works, as of July 2013. I don't know what happened to my brother's game.

              I still have my Crystal version (and it actually works :o )
              I sadly never beat the Battle Tower, but oh well.
              I have all of my Pokemon games in the second drawer, except for X / Y.

                Crystal's my favorite and always my go-to for 2nd gen. I just love the animated sprites way too much.

                      I still have mine! Tried playing it about a year ago and it worked perfectly fine. Hopefully I'll have a GPA SP soon to use it again. :)

                        I have a used copy of Crystal from about 10 years ago. I remember when my GameStop had copies of all the GBC pokemon games. And to think, I could have bought Yellow and escaped $100+ for a copy on EBay.

                        The battery itself works very well, although I've had my save wiped from it. As it is not acceptable to play Pokemon in my household (I still play emulators in secret), my physical copies are in a cabinet in my room.

                        I guess I'm pretty lucky because all of my games still work, and have all the original save files from Blue to Platinum with the exception of Crystal.

                          I had Pokemon Silver, not Crystal.

                          Also, Ask.com states that Pokemon Red is the rarest Pokemon game out there.
                          Which I got! Booyah!

                          Mine was lost about six years ago back in 2008. Not sure how I lost it, but it was still in perfect condition, though. The battery was working just fine, and there were no scratches on the cartridge at all. If I didn't lose it, I still would've been playing it, probably. xD"

                          Which I got! Booyah!
                          Well, possible of the main Pokemon games... ignoring Green, anyway, so maybe out of the main English Pokémon games? Gotta say, I'd imagine other spinoff titles to be rarer than that, and certainly Green should be rarer.

                          Anyways! I have both Silver and Crystal, although the latter isn't legit (part of a 2-in-1 cart with Telefang passed off as a 'Pokémon Diamond'). Silver battery died as well, sadly. =(

                            I too have a Crystal version. Still have the Box and manual along with it too, since I'm also a Pokemon/Retro game collector. I do know Crystal wasn't as common as the Gold and Silver versions, I remember seeing it VERY limited here in stores. But that may be so because I live in The Netherlands... I guess the game is not that rare, but not very common either
                            I also have Pokemon Stadium 1 and 2 on my Nintendo 64, I play these games very often when I have a few days off xD I still enjoy them! Best part is, I can play with my trusted Pokemon from my Crystal cartridge in Pokemon Stadium 2 as well!

                            You can get the intern save battery replaced somewhere though, so you can play and save again? :3
