Get All Starters Without Trading cheat for Pokemon Crystal

Get All Starters Without Trading

First, at the begginig of the game, go to Elm's lab. When he asks you to pick a Poke'mon, sae in front of the table. Now this may take some time. Go to Mr.Poke'mon's house and get the egg. Then go back to Elm's lab. Once you are about to leave, this guy will give you 5 Poke'balls. Go catch a Poke'mon and then go to Cherrygrove City and go to your box. Don't save anytime between then and now. Now deposit your starter and change the box number. When it says SAVING DON'T TURN OF THE P, turn off the game. If done correctlly, you should be back at Elm's lab. Do this again with all the starters and neer take them out until your done. If you go and check your box, you will have all three starters after you have done this three times.

It is working but he explained wrong, the way he explained (SAVING DON'T TURN OF THE P)is for Gold/Silver version.

In Crystal version you must restart after SAVING DON'T TURN OF THE POWER. So that means you must restart after the "full stop" is shown.

IT IS WORKING people, to do this trick, timing is crucial, so it is working. I did it few times (for me or my friends) and it worked every time.

Please do not be rude to others, what may be obvious to you may not be to the person asking the question!

i think there's nothin wrong with this trick... by cloning eevees holding rarcandies i just got like 190 candies and the trick worked every time in my GBC pokemon crystal (cloning by 5 pkmn). U have to be like 2yo to don't realize that u'll loose the old saved game if u do this... but u'll get a new one with all starters =)

I have done this before, it CAN work but it is EXTREMELY tricky because its only a 50/50 chance of actually saving the pokemon in the box

you cannot get all three because the red trainer gets on e after you go to mr pokemons house therefore even if the cheat did work you could only get two pokemon not all three.
