For the posts out there that are from the real world.
Last night was the first time I actually got farther than I ever had in the Gen. 2 Pokemon games. For some reason, when the games came out, I never made it past the Lake of Rage Team Rocket base. Real life just got in the way, and the game sat quietly on the back of my shelf. It was at this point that the initial battery that came with the game died due to under-use, the internal clock, and general aging.
So now I'm officially facing Pryce for the first time in the main game.

It just dawned on me looking at how many Pokemon I have to transfer over (once I unlock the ability to do so in Pokemon Stadium 2) that there's only three families that I really need to trade for in Crystal. Girafarig, the Remoraid family, and the Mareep family.
The original plan was to restore all three games and trade back and forth between them, with Crystal being the main training and breeding game for however long the battery would last. Since then, I've made several alterations

Today was the day that I attempted to restore my Pokemon Crystal cartridge. The battery had been long since dead, and it was a process that I was not looking forward to. While easy and with a high success rate, I felt nervous and ill-prepared in my skills for such an endeavor.
But after two hours, I got the game to work. And after another hour and a half, my game still boots properly, with my character currently taking a break at the Violet City Pokemon Center as I debate on if
