Pokemon Crystal's title screen Blue Moon Falls' site button

Playing the generation 1 and 2 Pokémon games in modern times can be difficult when going past the surface level. Googling various questions about the games often lead to old, disorganized forum threads, FAQ sites, and wiki pages, making researching RBY/GSC and their associated games a game of telephone from two decades ago.

This site serves as a roadmap to get the most enjoyment out of generation 1/2 Pokémon for the passionate player. It isn't just a list of information and stats, but also gives direction on what there even is to do in generations 1 and 2, and why it's worth trying. If you've ever wanted to become more intimate with these classic Pokémon games, this is the place.


CPG has changed names from "Classic Pokémon Guide" to "Blue Moon Falls"! The site should look almost identical to what you remember, and no content has been lost in the move, but please do update your links and bookmarks to the new URL! Such a change should never have to happen again - Blue Moon Falls is here to stay! It may take some time for Google to sort out the change in URL, so if you're coming from a Google search, sorry for the inconvenience!

Website looks broken or content is missing from the sidebars/menu? Try hitting CTRL+F5 for a hard refresh, or clearing your browser cache. Sometimes your browser holds onto the old version of the site if you don't do this.

A lost media search is ongoing for the flash contents of the Pokémon Dream World! While not related to generations 1 or 2 of Pokémon, I would be remiss to not help out the wider Pokémon community with such an important gaming conservation search. If you like generation 5 of Pokémon and would like to help out, or if you ever played the Pokémon Dream World before its untimely shutdown in 2014, please check out the call for help over at Project Pokémon!

Site Updates

Only the three most recent updates will be displayed here. You can use the button below to view all previous site updates.

4/18/23 - In light of Pokémon Stadium coming out on Switch without a complete suite of features, a guide on how to play the original Stadium games as originally intended has been added. If you want to know how to play the Stadium games on original hardware or through emulation, do check it out!

4/11/23 - The domain move from classicpokemonguide.com to bluemoonfalls.com is finally complete! The site looks nearly identical to how it used to, but its actually been rebuilt from the ground up, more or less. There are still some things leftover to do as time passes, but the site should be a little more accessibility-friendly now and on my end, it is much easier to make new pages. A lot of work went into the move, so it took me a while. Thank you for your patience! If you run into any issues I may have missed admist the move, you can use the new Report Errors page to let me know.

3/7/23 - A massive article on generation 2 Mystery Gift and decorations has been added! I am fairly certain it's the most comprehensive resource on the topic that currently exists. Please enjoy!
