Pokemon Crystal is the updated “third” version of Pokemon Gold and Silver. This revision introduces a few hallmarks that continued onwards through the series: Pokemon sprite animations, the Battle Tower, a female protagonist choice, and even legendary-focused storylines through a little side story surrounding Suicune. Colors and the like were also updated for a bit more quality, as Crystal was also on a GBC only cartridge.
This is pretty much Gold or Silver but even better, you can’t really go wrong with it.
This a translation of Pokemon Crystal popularly known as “Pokemon Vietnamese Crystal”. It is an English translation, believed to have been based on an unofficial Chinese translation of the original Japanese version. It is said to have been named because it came to the Let’s Play communities attention through a bootleg cart found in Vietnam. It is notable for its bad, to the point of being sometimes incomprehensible, translation. So, it’s not one to play if one is looking for a serious translation. Then one should play the official translation.
This was originally distributed only as a ROM link on some shady websites, so for convenience it has been converted to a patch for the Japanese version.
