  • Pokémon Crystal is to Pokémon Gold and Silver what Pokémon Yellow is to Pokémon Red and Blue. It features several
    minor upgrades from its predecessors, but in essence it's still the same game. The classic Pokémon formula of
    adventuring, collecting, and battling is at a series best with Crystal. This is one of the best and most addictive
    role-playing games for the Game Boy Color.The most notable feature is the selectable female trainer who has her own set
    of animations and backgrounds. This is a great option for female Pokémon fans who were previously stuck playing the
    game as a male character. There are also subtle improvements to the cell phone system, HM moves, and prebattle
    animations. Rival trainers' phone calls are now more plentiful and pragmatic. HM moves, which are required throughout
    the game, are available at the push of a button--you'll no longer have to navigate menus to use these moves. Lastly,
    seeing a Pokémon's new animation makes encountering new creatures more fun than before.

    If you haven't played Gold or Silver yet, Crystal is definitely the way to go. If you've played those previous games,
    Crystal has only enough new features to justify a purchase from Pokémon fanatics. This game is compatible with the
    link cable, Game Boy printer, and Pokémon Pikachu 2. It's playable on Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance only, and can
    be played on a television using Pokémon Stadium 2 and a Transfer Pak. --Raymond M. Padilla
