Soon every Pokemon game ever released will be playable on the 3DS. Nintendo, today, has announced that Pokemon Crystal will be available for purchase on the 3DS beginning January 26th. The third game in the Gold/Silver line was the first game to allow players to choose whether they wanted to play as a boy or a girl.
When it launches it will be available to purchase for $9.99. It will also be compatible with Pokemon Bank, the online service that allows you to transfer Pokemon between games. With the addition of Pokémon Crystal to this service, it is now possible for players to bring Pokémon from all 29 core games in the series to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon. The game will also allow for online functionality to simulate using a Game Link to battle and trade with other players.
