Pokemon Crystal is a role-playing video game developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo for the Game Boy Color handheld console. It was first released in Japan in December 2000, and later in North America, Europe, and Australia in 2001.
The game is set in the Johto region and features 251 different Pokemon to catch, train, and battle with. It also introduced several new features to the Pokemon series, such as the ability to choose the player’s gender, animated Pokemon sprites, and the Battle Tower, a post-game challenge where players can battle against strong trainers.

Pokemon Crystal Starters
In Pokemon Crystal, players can choose from three different starter Pokemon at the beginning of the game. These starter Pokemon are:

- Cyndaquil – a Fire-type Pokemon that resembles a small, blue and orange porcupine. Cyndaquil is a fast and powerful attacker, making it a good choice for players who like to battle aggressively.
- Totodile – a Water-type Pokemon that resembles a small crocodile. Totodile is a strong and tough Pokemon, making it a good choice for players who prefer a more defensive playstyle.
