New Pokémon
Gold Silver Crystal



Route 3 leads to Mt. Moon, where your Rival is waiting, ready to battle. You'll run into a handful of Trainers with Flying-, Poison- or Fire-type Pokémon, so you might want to backtrack to Pewter City before continuing on to Mt. Moon.

Route 3

There's nothing to do here except catch a Clefairy in Crystal and battle a few easy Junior Trainers. You'll note that the Pokémon Center near the entrance to Mt. Moon has closed, but it's such an easy area now that you won't miss it.

#35 Clefairy
Clefairy has a couple of new moves, including level 4's Encore (which repeats your opponent's last move) and Moonlight, a healing move that is stronger at night. And now they can lay an egg containing a new Pokémon, Cleffa.
