With the ability to encounter Celebi in game…
The final Gameboy Pokemon game, Pokemon Crystal, will be releasing on the Nintendo 3DS via a Virtual Console release on the eShop, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company announced today. Previously, Pokemon Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, and Silver had all been put on the eShop, with support for wireless trading and Pokemon Bank added to them.
Crystal will retain all that functionality, but also add the Celebi event in the game, which was originally exclusive to Japan only, thanks to Crystal‘s groundbreaking mobile communication technology being removed from the western version’s release, will be added in the game, too.
Pokemon Crystal will be coming to the eShop on January 26, completing the release of all the classic Pokemon games, before Ruby/Sapphire reinvented the franchise on the Gameboy Advance, on the system. As the best game of the second generation, which was, in turn, the best generation, I recommend that you pick it up when you get the chance.
