This ‘improvement hack’ of Pokemon Crystal has been 5 years in the making, created with the mindset of updating Crystal to ‘current-gen’ standards but without losing the nostalgic feel of the original. The hack has many features that may make playing it more comfortable for newer players such as the “PPS” system (Pokeride).
