Into the Crystal
After stepping into the crystal, the player awakens in a wooded map leading to a tutorial in the Exbel Woods .
- Destiny Cavern used to act as the place where players first appeared upon starting a new character. Since then, new sections were added before and after this area in order to slowly ease players into the game.
- In 2011, the individual chambers used to use the same tiles as the main chamber.
- The area before Destiny Cavern is called Summoner's Platform
- Technically, Togepi (and the rest of its Family) is now Fairy Type, but it is still included as a Normal Type Starter.
