Pokemon Trainer Stories: Crystal's Story

by Noyeh Kaguya

Noyeh Kaguya
Crystal, also known as Crys for short, is a specialist at capturing Pokémon, hired by Professor Oak. As a child, she took a bad fall and broke both of her arms. Because of the accident, she learned to catch Pokémon by kicking Poké Balls, a habit she has kept long after her arms healed.

She has many Pokémon before starting her story, but her "starter" Pokémon is a Chikorita which escaped from Professor Elm's laboratory, desperate to go on a journey. Her Pokémon include a Smoochum (named Chumee), a Hitmonchan (Monlee), a Parasect (Parasee), an Arcanine (Archy), a Natu (Natee), and a Cubone (Bonee). At the end of her story, she rides on the three legendary beasts (Entei, Raikou, and Suicune) to go help defeat Mask of Ice.

Later on in the series, she dispatches Emerald to the Battle Frontier to find and capture Jirachi.

Crys is usually gentle and amiable, but also has a serious and perhaps intimidating side when it comes to work. Her aggressive and enthusiastic attitude in Pokémon capturing overwhelms Oak, terrifies Bill, and Gold is fond of calling her the "Representative of Club Serious". Later on, she successfully gets Ruby and Sapphire to join her side in scorning Gold's bragging, although the same cannot be said for Emerald. Crys currently works as Oak's assistant, and stations either at his Kanto, Johto, or Hoenn Science Lab branch.

According to her, she has captured at least one of every non-legendary Pokémon in the world, and has completed the Pokédex in every region.​
