Pokemon Crystal, How to Use Pokegear Radio

Days of the week

The seven days of the week are an important aspect in the Pokémon world. Certain in-game events are triggered only on certain days of the week. Certain NPC characters in Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver will make an appearance on certain days throughout the in-game week. Generation II, Generation IV, Generation V, Generation VI, and Generation VII handheld games incorporate the in-game clock.

Gold, Silver, and Crystal

While many events take place depending on the day of the week, there are some events that always take place, but change slightly depending on the day:

  • The Pokémon Music Channel broadcasts either the Pokémon March or the Pokémon Lullaby
  • The corresponding Week Sibling will give away an item when spoken to for the first time.

Below are all the events that depend on the day of the week.

Many Pokémon Centers have Trainers that will battle the player. They cycle through the days of the week and are specific to their location. There are eight Trainers (four alone and two pairs) that will battle the player in a Pokémon Center. These Trainers will be in six Pokémon Centers * (one or two Trainers in each Pokémon Center). The six Pokémon Centers in which they appear will change depending on the day of the week.

So, Julia will give the player a different ribbon each day of the week.
