A Genwunner's Crystal

Hack of Pokémon: Crystal Version


Like Pokemon Crystal? Don’t like all those newfangled Gen 2 Pokémon? Well this may just be the hack for you!

In A Genwunner’s Crystal, the only Pokémon in the game are those that have been introduced in Red, Blue, and Yellow! The only exception to this rule are those that evolve from Generation 1 Pokémon into Generation 2 Pokémon, so don’t be surprised when Clair’s Kingdra wipes out your entire team again.

But that’s not all! There are also some bonus changes that were made at like 2 in the morning, including increased gym leader levels, different move sets on important trainers, and a “Brand New” final boss!

Mediocre Hack

Reviewed By: JSwizzle on 07 May 2021

The whole genwunner thing of removing the charm that was present in vanilla Crystal is already a killer to this rom – they may as well have removed Kanto and just made a shorter, even more boring Johto with nothing to do in postgame – since that’s basically just about what this hack is.

Sorry to be blunt, but I doubt many people are going to play a romhack that removes content out of the whole ‘genwunner’ mindset – especially if you’re not adding something of equal importance in return.

Also stripping Gen 2 of what makes it so good (namely the new Pokemon) is just… too much.

I could understand adding more depth to the shallow GSC Johto – but this. This is just done in bad taste and leaves something to be desired, and a bitter taste in my mouth. This whole terrible idea would be like creating a Ruby/Sapphire hack and removing the Hoenn Pokemon and removing the Battle Tower – nobody would like it.

Try again with another idea, please. Create something a little more original, and then it might be considered worth playing.
