In this game, all of the Pokémon have been reworked... think Alolan/Galarian forms, for all the Pokémon. All 251 Pokémon are available in-game without trading. We've reworked all of the trainers and wild encounters to fit as well. In addition, there have been a few visual tweaks, and we've added a few new places to explore, too!

The story is all the same as vanilla Pokémon Crystal, so the experience is similar, but with the new Pokémon designs.

List of Features

  • All 251 Pokémon redesigned, with new types and movesets to fit
  • All wild encounter data changed, to better fit the new designs to the environments
  • All Pokémon are available without trading, including trade evolutions and starters
