    It's out of production, that's why people charge ridiculously high prices.

    In SM news, I won three games for the Mega Stones. Hariyama and Porygon TR duo, Vikavolt and Garchomp duo and Muk for Tapus, Araquanid with the Z-move.

    thats true, so $70 is on the high side, thankfully i only paid $30 for black 2 VS the $45 from another stall. its pretty much either over priced or equal to a current new game price. i guess i'll just pass on crystal then. the nostalgia/desire isnt worth the price or my spare time, plus i find any screen smaller than the 3DS XL too small at this point.

    in SM, im honestly surprised how some on my pkmn choices have served well in the battles. i put a 4 SPA moves Froslass in the battles long ago and it still does very well given the right circumstances. i KO'd 2 gyarados so far in this competition. i'll probably use mega sceptile in a few battles after i breed a good 5IV (or HP variety) one in sun. i didnt use any new megas introduced back in ORAS and rarely battled there so it should be interesting.

    They really should figure out a way to future prof these games better It's annoying if you want to get into a handheld series that has been going on over multiple incarnations and want to backtrack the past titles. Remakes are nice, but they aren't exactly the original game now, are they?

    Maybe one day we'll be able to get all Pokemon titles on Virtuale Console, that'd be cool.

    And their response to you if you want to backtrack would be "the previous generation of games is still readily available both physically and digitally for the time being." You can't really expect them to still be producing Game Boy Color games from nearly two decades and several generations of hardware/software ago, can you?

    And to that end, these games stay in production and on store shelves for years after release. X/Y are nearly four years old and they're still available new. And with modern technology, games are available digitally for longer still, taking away the need to find a store still selling new copies. What would you have them do differently here and now?

    But they can charge you a lot more and move a lot more hardware with remakes.

    Ultimately this is a complaint that it's hard to find copies of video games as they get older and defunct and go out of production, particularly when they're as old as a game like Crystal. That will be the case for as long as games are still published on physical media and it's not exclusive to Pokémon.

    if you have noticed Nintendo just announced New 2DS XL... which kinda suggests that 3DS is STILL going strong. It is weaker BUT 3DS market is still on for at least 2017/18... so Generation 7 will stay on 3DS or at least made to run best on new 3DS/2DS hardware ( new 3DS/2DS hardware is bit different from vanilia 3DS hardware. ) so whatever next pokemon game is it will most likely be on 3DS format.
    Generation 8 will probably on Switch but for this generation at least will be on new 3DS hardware. So no jumping devices within generation

    I am aware of that but I feel it is more a problem with console/handheld games than it is with PC games. You can easily find 20, 25 or even 30 year old games on places like Steam or GoG, older ones might even be available legally for free as Abandonware, the worst roblem you might run to is that you have to use an MS DOS emulator if you want to play something from the early history of gaming.
    I don't play very many console/handheld games and many older ones I enjoyed from my childhood have since found their way to steam, so I can play them again. I can't exactly picture Pokemon or Legends of Zelda ever coming to Steam, so I was expressing a hope that they find a way to make them legally and readily available in the future (such as on the virtual console or a future incarnation of the concept). Pokemon, I think, is the most affected because GF's commitment to keep the main series on handhelds.
