I’m wondering why they didn’t just release this one instead of Silver and Gold but now I remember they did go and release Red, Blue and Yellow on 3DS VC.

Yeah but those all released at the same time didn't they?

Nintendo doesn't respect its consumers.

Welp, guess I know what I'm getting in January. I am on my way to the Lake of Rage in my Silver playthrough after Crystal wasn't released at the same time as G/S. I can't wait to play through Crystal again after so long, it's definitely my preferred version of the three.

Chrom with the comeback.

 

Whatever the reason they never release Crystal along with Gold and Silver doesn't matter now as it is coming. I had little doubt it was coming but good to hear we're getting a release.

 

Also, is it just me or most associate Crystal mascot as Suicune and not Celebi based on the original box are for Crystal? I know you can Celebi is part of the 2nd gen and another spectacular Pokemon story wise but when I see Celebi and it just breaks how originally see Crystal with Suicune. I hope they don't market the nostalgia with Celebi, that would be mistake, if this is new take on old the title then sure but if they are going for them feels, stick with Suicune.

Exactly. Better late than never with it.

 

Yep. But frankly I'm just happy that we have a chance to catch one in game.

True, they can't change that but I'm more talking about the promotion of this game, we of the old guard knows who represents Crystal. Those who heard of Crystal and want to know more where Pokemon started from, I feel like the they're missing out on the authenticity of Crystal.

 

Just a personal nitpick, not something to blow up over but still significant enough to bring attention to fond nostalgists.

Maybe. But Suicune is still there on their site. They're just advertising Celebi being catchable mainly.

Oh, I couldn't watch vid through Twiiter for some reason and having the thumbnail for Celebi makes it look like the focus is on Celebi and not Suicune. Before writing that post I suspect with this being port that Suicune will be focus. It's just as I said those who don't know much about Crystal will think Celebi is the focus when it is really Suicune.

 

Gotta look out for the kiddies.

After such a long time, Celebi becomes one of a handful of Mythical Pokemon to be available to find and capture in non-Japanese games, along with Mew (FireRed/LeafGreen and Emerald via Old Sea Chart event), Darkrai (Diamond/Pearl/Platinum via Member Card event), Shaymin (Platinum via Oak's Letter event), and Victini (Black/White via Liberty Pass event). Cant wait to catch a Celebi for the first time. :P

I agree Celebi isn't a Pokemon that one can get in main line Pokemon games for the 4 or so gens (at least for Japanese version events and legitimately) but at the same time my fave mystical grass Pokemon has got to go to Shaymin. (especially its sky forme)

 

This Pokemon combines fierceness and cuteness into one package, like Kirby but I don't look at Kirby like that but I suspect ppl who are big fans of him probable do, tho.

Good to see it finally coming out! I remember playing it back in the day and really liked the changes and the atmosphere brought to the game. It was around the time the GCN and GBA were coming out and so it brings back memories of that time period. Then I lost Crystal somewhere and couldn't find it for years. I thought it was long gone. Turns out it was under an old tv stands I happened to find while moving.
