Pokemon: Silver / Gold / Crystal - July '12

Master Pokemon: Silver, Gold or Crystal to gain 34 Game Club Points each!!! (Only one will be added to your July total but all will be added to your over all and yearly total.)

Example Ending Shot


Pokémon Gold and Silver continued the enormous success of its predecessors as Pokémon began to form into a multi-billion dollar franchise. The games almost matched the sales Pokémon Red and Blue and went on to jointly sell millions of copies worldwide. By 2010, the recorded sales of Gold and Silver were at 23 million units sold.

Pokémon Gold and Silver take place in Johto three years after the events of the games' predecessors "Red" and "Blue", which take place in the Kanto region. Johto is a fictional region modeled after the Kansai and Tokai regions of Japan. This is one distinct region shown in the various Pokémon video games. It features a total of seven cities and three towns, along with different geographical locations and Routes connecting most locations to one another. Some areas are only accessible once the player learns a special ability or gains a special item; for instance, the player must acquire the HM Surf, which allows the character to ride certain Pokémon across the sea, in order to reach Cianwood City.

The silent protagonist of Pokémon Gold and Silver is a young boy who lives in New Bark Town. At the beginning of the games, players may choose either Chikorita, Cyndaquil, or Totodile, as their starter Pokémon from Professor Elm. In addition, his rival will steal a Pokémon from Professor Elm and battle the player at certain points in the game to test the player's Pokémon.[7]

The basic goal of the game is to become the best trainer in Johto and Kanto; which is done by raising Pokémon, completing the Pokédex, defeating the eight Gym Leaders in Johto for Gym Badges, and challenging the Elite Four and the Champion, and then defeating the eight Gym Leaders in Kanto. Finally, the player may face off against Red atop of Mt. Silver. Throughout the game, the player will have to battle against the forces of Team Rocket, a criminal organization that abuses Pokémon.

The games introduce 100 new species of Pokémon.

While Pokémon Gold and Silver retain the basic mechanics of capturing, battling, and evolving introduced in Pokémon Red and Blue, new features were added. A time system was introduced using a real-time internal clock that keeps track of the current time and day of the week. Certain events, including Pokémon appearances, are influenced by this feature. New items were added, with some designed to exploit a new mechanic: Pokémon being able to hold items. A new type of item able to be held was the berry, which comes in varieties and can restore health or cure status effects. Other held items can give boosts to the Pokémon during battle. More specialized Poké Balls were introduced, which make Pokémon catching easier in certain situations. A new item called the Pokégear was introduced, functioning as a watch, map, radio, and phone, allowing the player to call other characters who offer their phone number. Trainers will call for a rematch and others will call about rare Pokémon that can be caught in a certain area.

The games introduce Raikou, Entei, and Suicune, a new type of legendary Pokémon that wander around Johto, changing locations frequently. They can be tracked by the Pokédex once encountered, and will always attempt to flee, but will retain HP loss. In addition there is the possibility of encountering a shiny Pokémon, which have a different coloration than normal Pokémon of their species, and appear very rarely. Two new Pokémon types were added, the Steel-type and the Dark-type. Steel-type Pokémon have very high defense and resistance to other types, while Dark-type Pokémon are immune to Psychic-type moves and are strong against Psychic-type Pokémon, as well as having few weaknesses. In Gold and Silver, new moves were added, but Pokémon knowing new moves are not allowed to be traded to the first generation games. To solve this, a move deleter was introduced, capable of erasing moves known by the Pokémon. Another major change was the splitting of the Special stat into Special Attack and Special Defense, which increased aspects of strategy.

With the introduction of Pokémon breeding, Pokémon are assigned to one or two breeding groups. When a male and female Pokémon that share at least one breeding group are left at a Pokémon Daycare, they may produce an egg, which will hatch into a young Pokémon. The young Pokémon will inherit the species of its mother, and moves from its father. However, legendary Pokémon, among certain other species, cannot breed.

The plot and gameplay of Pokémon Crystal is largely the same as in Gold and Silver, although it holds new features. It is the first game to allow players to choose the sex of their character, while previously the character was always male. Pokémon have animated sprites; for example, when a Cyndaquil enters battle, the flames on its back flicker. This feature was absent in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire and Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, but appeared in all games following. In addition, a couple of subplots were added, one involving the legendary Pokémon Suicune, featured on the front cover of the game, and the other involving the Unown. The game's biggest addition was the Battle Tower, a new building which allows players to participate in Pokémon Stadium-like fights. A feature exclusive to the Japanese version of Crystal allows the player to link up with others through the use of a mobile phone.

Beating Red is sufficient for mastery.

Re: Pokemon: Silver / Gold / Crystal - July '12

Something odd happened with the PC system that never happened to me before. When I went to withdraw the only pokemon I had that knew Cut, all 4 pokemon I had in the PC were gone. I went to catch another pokemon to use it on, and I deposited my starter. Said starter is no longer with me.

So I would try not to have HM slaves if you're going for mastery, best to just suck it up.

Mastered. Usually don't grab the Lugia, but since Typhlosion suffered a tragic accident, I had to.
