Pokémon has, and will continue to be, one of the most loved franchises in all of gaming. Beloved by many and hated by few, this game series has captured the hearts of both young and old for a good reason. One of the many games in this franchise is Pokémon Crystal, which features some cheat codes.
The Nitty Gritty
Pokémon Crystal was initially released on December 14, 2000 for the Gameboy Color. It was then later released on the Nintendo 3DS on January 26, 2018. There are many games in the Pokémon series but none are required to be played first in order to play Pokémon Crystal. However, you can play the predecessor of this game Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue to get some background of the game’s universe. If you happen to be curious, the games that are related to Crystal are Pokémon Silver And Pokémon Gold. They were the original games in the second generation of Pokémon. Pokémon Crystal was released after these two as a sort of expansion.
This version of the game follows the same story line of both Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver. Just like most of the Pokémon games, you create your protagonist and begin your journey around the Johto region to become the one and only Pokémon Master! Let’s go! At the beginning of the game, the player acquires one of the three starter Pokémon from Professor Elm — we’ll talk about him later. The second gen starters are my favorite of any starters in the entire franchise. I mean come on, Chikorita, Todadole, and the best Pokémon of them all, Cyndaquil! I will not be taking feedback on that absolute fact at this time, thank you. All jokes aside, after the player picks one of these three starters, they can then begin their journey across Johto. The player is then tasked to go to defeat the Elite 4 and Pokémon Master Lance to become the new Champion in the Johto League. Something completionists love is completely filling out the Pokédex but it’s not mandatory.
There are many important and interesting characters that the player will run into in Pokémon Crystal. There are sixteen gym leaders in this game. Here are a few of the main characters in this article for now.
- Professor Elm: The Pokémon professor of New Bark Town. He is proficient in Pokémon evolution as well as Pokémon breeding. He is the professor that gives the player their first Pokémon in the game.
- Silver: The player’s rival in the game. They are also the son of the Team Rocket leader “Giovanni”.
- Will: The psychic type Pokémon trainer in the Elite 4.
- Koga: The poison type Pokémon trainer in the Elite 4.
- Bruno: The fighting type Pokémon trainer in the Elite 4.
- Karen: Is the dark type Pokémon trainer in the Elite 4.
- Lance: Is the dragon type Pokémon trainer, and is the Johto region’s Pokémon Master.
There are a decent amount of codes that can be used to help get a little more out of the game! However, I’ll only be touching on some of them. Don’t worry, I’ll make sure they are useful and will definitely help your hard, for no reason, Nuzlock run. Remember, not all codes will work the first time around, and you may have to try to implement it a few times before you get results. You also need a GameShark in order to use these cheats on the Game Boy Color version. You should be fine without one if you’re playing it on the Nintendo 3DS version.
