In the Emerald arc her attire was similar, but she also wore a white lab coat and her shorts were replaced with a yellow skirt. In the HGSS arc she wore a white hat with a pink band, a red longsleeved shirt, overalls, thigh-high white socks with black bands at the top, and black shoes.


As a child, Crystal broke her arms, causing her to learn how to kick pokéballs in order to capture Pokémon. This also fostered a powerful friendship between her and her Pokémon.

Emerald Arc

Crystal and Gold are sent to the Battle Frontier to revive Red, Green, Blue, Yellow and Silver


Crystal takes the students of Earl Dervish's Pokémon Academy on a field trip to the Safari Zone; however, her mother makes her change from a professor's coat to overalls to show that this field trip is meant to be fun. While there, she encounters Silver.[1]

Crystal and Silver go together to Ecruteak City to see Morty, hoping he can help them locate Lance. Crystal gives Silver a Pokégear and insists on helping him, knowing that he is in no condition to fight on his own. When they get to the outskirts of Ecruteak City, they are confronted by Ariana, a Team Rocket admin. Crystal and Silver initially fight her together, but when Silver figures out the meaning of the Plates, Crystal covers his retreat.[2]

Ariana knocks out several of Crystal's Pokémon, but their battle is interrupted by the arrival of Arceus. Crystal decides to capture Arceus and follows it.[3]


Crystal usually has an amicable and gentle personality, but when it comes to capturing and work she becomes more serious and maybe even intimidating. Her aggressive and enthusiastic side overwhelmed Professor Oak and terrified Bill. She and Gold often have disputes due to their opposite personalities, but the two are actually pretty close. In the Emerald Arc she got Ruby and Sapphire to join her in scorning Gold's bragging, even though the same couldn't be said for Emerald.
