Originally released for the Game Boy Color in 2000, Pokémon Crystal was the first Pokémon game developed solely for the original Game Boy's successor handheld, and it was the first Pokémon game in which the player could choose the gender of their player character.
I have to admit, I never played Crystal. Never owned a GBC, just went straight to the Game Boy advance and Ruby/Sapphire. So, I'd love to give this a shot.
Interesting that the game promises a shot at capturing the Legendary Pokémon called Celebi. You see, Celebi was a Pokémon that could only be obtained in a event. Otherwise, you'd have to hack the game. I'm hoping they included a way to obtain it in a less...limited manner.
I like that this game is also going to be compatible with Pokémon Bank. It means that Pokémon caught here can be brought up to later games like X, Y, and Sun and Moon. Awesome! I could bring a Cyndaquil to Alola! Now if only they can make Bank compatible with Black and White, and Diamond and Pearl, we can really get down to business! Gens 4 and 5 get neglected by the Bank!
This is a neat announcement. I think I may give this game a play...
