What is the best version in the 2nd generation?

I'd say Crystal. Animations, cleaner look, choice of gender, etc. Gold might be beter for those who like ho-oh tho. In Crystal and Silver you gotta catch all three dogs to get him. So people might not like that.

I've always preferred Lugia to Ho-oh, so Silver Version. However, Crystal is the best out of the three; I love Kris, animated sprites, and Suicune. :P

Crystal is my favorite since it had a lot of features that Gold & Silver lacked and introduced many new things. The best thing being that Suicune wasn't a roamer anymore. But its not perfect, being unable to get a Lugia with Aeroblast and Ho-oh without Sacred Fire always annoyed me. It also lacks wild Mareep, which let me down when I played it. But I still think it's the best of the three.

Silver version without a doubt. It had better sprites than Gold version, and the version exclusive Pokemon were cooler in my opinion (I loved being able to find wild Delibird and Phanpy). Encountering Lugia early was also a bonus.
Even though I've spent more time playing Gold than the other Gen II games, I would have to pick Crystal as being the best version for having features that weren't in Gold/Silver like the Suicune plot, Battle Tower, etc.

I've only played Crystal once, but it was enough to clearly stand above Gold and Silver in my eyes. It's the definitive Gen II version.
Crystal by far. only real downside is it wasn't playable on the super game boy for snes
Looking for: Lansat & Staraf Berries

Crystal because: There is a new game in the Radio Tower thing that lets you get rare candies and other poke-drugs. You get the Mysterious Egg from the Daycare which means free pokemon with a higher chance of being shiny, and you get a Dratini with Extreme Speed from the Dragon's Den.
The only downside I can think of is lack of Lugia/Ho-oh and other silver/gold exclusive pokemon.
Crystal because you can choose either male or female and the enchantments to the story, obviously.
I only ever had Silver, but after watching a certain someone's let's play of it, and from what I remember seeing on my friend's cartridge years ago, I would say Crystal. It was an improvement, especially as it gave a bit of a story, had animated sprites, a choice of gender, some scenery upgrades in some places... and I think that's it. Not much else to say, really.
It is Silver for me.

It's a tie between Gold and Silver for me (it depends on which Pokemon you like), but since you're throwing Crystal in there, Crystal is definitely the best, they added on some new features and stuff. I don't like how they handled the legendaries in Crystal, though.
In GS, all three of the Beast trio are runners, but you don't need any of them for Lugia and Ho-oh. You get your version mascot (Ho-oh in Gold, Lugia in Silver) after defeating Team Rocket in Radio Tower and the other one when you get the Rainbow Wing/Silver Wing from an old man in Pewter City.
In Crystal, only Raikou and Entei are runners, while Suicune is fought in Tin Tower after defeating Team Rocket in Radio Tower. You then need all three of the Beast trio (and to defeat the Elite 4 IIRC) to get the Rainbow Wing from the monks and climb Tin Tower to catch Ho-oh. Meanwhile you get the Silver Wing from the old man in Pewter City and catch Lugia then.

Well I have only played gold, but crystal is probably better because of the moving pokémon at the start and the battle tower o:
crystal by far
I only had gold and Crystal, crystal was better.
Crystal got a lot of improviments that lacks on Silver/Gold, that's why it's expected it to win the poll.
Crystal, easily. Had alot of features improved over Gold and Silver.
