Pokémon Crystal – What’s New?


After freeing the legendary creatures, of which Suicune is part,
Suicune can be seen in Cianwood City, after which you’ll fight
Eusine, a Suicune lover.

Afterward, Suicune can also be seen in Routes 36 and 42.

After chasing Team Rocket out of the Radio Tower, the Director
will give you a Clear Bell, which you can take to Tin Tower and
battle a L40 Suicune with. Once inside, you’ll battle three sages
known as the Wise Trio.

Once you capture Entei, Raikou, and Suicune in Pokémon Crystal Version, you can get the Rainbow Wing in Tin Tower, which you can
use to battle a L60 Ho-Oh at the top.

Getting the Radio

The woman at the Radio Tower asks new questions:

  1. Is there a Pokémon that appears only in the morning? (Yes)
  2. Is this statement correct? You can’t buy a Berry at a Mart.
  3. Does HM01 contain the move Flash? (No)
  4. Is Falkner the Violet Gym Leader who uses bird Pokémon?
  5. Do Goldenrod Game Corner’s slots have Charmander on their
    reels? (No)

This is essentially the same sequence as Pokémon Gold Version and Pokémon Silver Version: yes, yes, no, yes, no.

Buena’s Password

Simply tune in to Johto’s “Password” show. Buena will say a
password each day. Go to the second floor of the Radio Tower to
meet Buena. When you first meet her, she’ll give you a Blue Card to
save your points in. These points are redeemable for prizes. Then,
when you visit Buena at night and say the right password, you’ll
get one point for your Blue Card.

Dragon User Challenge

Instead of grabbing a Dragon Fang at Dragon’s Den, you’ll have
to defeat the trainer guarding the entrance, and go to the shrine
at the middle of Dragon’s Den. Once inside, you need only answer a
few questions:

  1. What are Pokémon to you? – Pal, Underling, Friend
  2. What helps you to win battles? – Strategy, Raising,
  3. What kind of trainer do you wish to battle? – Weak
    , Tough person, Anybody
  4. What is most important for raising Pokémon? – Love,
    Violence, Knowledge
  5. Strong Pokémon. Weak Pokémon. Which is more important? –
    Tough, Both, Weak

The elder almost wants you to pass, since if you give an invalid
answer (shown stricken out), you’ll have to re-answer the question.
Once you pass the challenge, you’ll earn the Rising Badge (Clair
will deny that you had passed). Once you leave the shrine, Clair
will also give you TM24.

When you return to the shrine, the elder will give you a
Dratini. It will know Extremespeed only if you answer all five
questions correctly the first time.

More Unown

At each Sliding Panel chamber, you’ll notice Unown written on
the wall. They’re easy to decipher if you consult the alphabet
found on the Ruins of
walkthru page.

Kabuto: Written on the wall is the word “ESCAPE” (ANANUKE)
in Unown. Use an Escape Rope to leave the room. Once you enter the
room, a door will open. There is a room with four items (Heal
Powder, Energypowder, Berry, Psncureberry). Go through the hole,
and you’ll land on a floor with Unown scattered all around. The
Unown are spelling the phrase:


There is yet another hole on the floor which will lead back to
the ruins.

Aerodactyl: “LIGHT” (HIKARI) Use a Pokémon with Flash to
light up the room. Take the four items (Heal Powder, Energy Root,
Gold Berry, Moon Stone), and go through the hole. You’ll land on a
floor with Unown spelling out the phrase:


Omanyte: “WATER” (MIZU) Attach a Water Stone to (or use a
Water Stone to attempt to evolve) the top Pokémon in your party and
enter the room. Take the four items (Stardust, Star Piece,
Mysteryberry, Mystic Water ), and go through the hole. You’ll land
on a floor with Unown spelling out the phrase:


Ho-Oh: “HO OH” (HOUOU) Have Ho-Oh at the top of your party.
Take the four items (Revival Herb, Charcoal, Gold Berry,
Mysteryberry), and go through the hole. You’ll land on a floor with
Unown spelling out the phrase:



There are no additional rewards for discovering all four
