Crystal (Japanese: クリスタル, abbreviated to クリス Crys, or Chris in Chuang Yi translations) is the seventh main character of the manga series Pokémon Special. Due to a bad fall she took as a child, breaking her arms, she learned to kick Poké Balls with her feet. Although by now her arms have been completely healed, Crystal has retained the habit of kicking her Poké Balls instead of throwing them. She's caught all non-legendary Pokémon for Professor Oak; more than any of the other characters in Pokémon Special.

She later adds Hoenn Pokémon to her collection and apparently begins to work full-time as one of Professor Oak's assistants. Crystal's Pokémon collection is used by Emerald when he goes to the Battle Frontier.

Crystal's special skill, as described by Professor Oak, is Pokémon catching, and she is known as the "catcher" (捕える者).

Pokémon

Her "starter" Pokémon was a Chikorita which escaped from Professor Elm's lab, longing to go on a journey. It should be noted, however, that Chikorita was not her first Pokémon, as she by her introduction already owned six. All of Crystal's party Pokémon have a symbol of a star somewhere on them. Some wear star necklaces or stickers, but her Cubone and Parasect had natural markings in the shape of stars.

The suffix "ee" (Japanese: "pyon") of the nicknames of her Pokémon was insisted by her mother, who named everyone except Chikorita.

Here is the list of Crystal's personal Pokémon (updated to the end of GSC Saga), although aside from these she's also captured every single one from Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn, except legendary Pokémon.

Mega was a starter Pokémon under Professor Elm's care. With his friends setting out on a journey (Cyndaquil with Gold and Totodile with Silver), Mega wanted to set out on a journey as well. After some convincing, Crys let Mega join the team. Mega is a very bold Pokémon, and is willing to get himself hurt to help others, as seen with the battle against Larvitar, in which he evolved into Bayleef. He evolved again to a Meganium in the Whirl Islands.
