This is an old page - it still exists for archival purposes, but it hasn't been on the menu since 2005, possibly earlier. That means I wrote it as a young teenager and found it embarrassing or redundant enough to disown it even when I was fifteen. Thus, it is probably outdated, poorly or childishly written and presented, and otherwise of questionable quality, and I do not necessarily endorse any views and opinions expressed here today. If you've stumbled upon it, treat it accordingly.
The TRUTH of Crystal
The TRUTH about the Steel type
The Steel type is resistant to every type except Fire, Water, Electric, Ground and Fighting - that is, if you count the immunity to Poison as a resistance. People have been saying that it's resistant to everything it isn't weak to except Water - that's not true.
The TRUTH about the legendary Pokémon
In Crystal, only Suicune is found in a different place than in Gold and Silver. Lugia is gotten exactly the same way as in Gold, and to get into the Tin Tower for Ho-oh, you need to catch Raikou, Entei AND Suicune. After catching them, the wise trio will give you the Rainbow wing.
The TRUTH about Celebi
You can't catch Celebi in the English version of Pokémon crystal, only in the Japanese version.
The TRUTH about the female Mr.Mime mystery
The truth is... that there is no mystery! Mr.Mime's Japanese name has nothing to do with it being male, and the name Mr.Mime was made before genders came to be. So when Gold and Silver came out, there were female Mr.Mimes, and in Japan, there was nothing wrong with it. It's NOA's fault for making that name.
