Pokemon Gold and Silver coming to 3DS Virtual Console, but where's Crystal?

I don't get it? Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow were all released together but only G&S are coming. Even Japan got Pokemon Green as well. Why didn't they include Crystal? That one was better than G&S, just as Yellow was better than R&B.

Because for everything Nintendo gets right, they have to do something stupid to eventually counteract it.

But also maybe they're working on it and it's not ready, but they wanted to get the other two out?

Think about it. If Nintendo released Crystal at the same time, Most people wouldn't bother buying Gold & Silver.

If they bring Crystal out at a later date in the next year or 2 some people/kids will see it as a separate game and still buy it even if they already have Gold or Silver.

They may well have learned about this from releasing Red, Blue and Yellow all at the same time in the past.

They should release Crystal, along with Pinball. Those are the only two Pokemon GB/GBC games that aren't on the 3DS Virtual Console or haven't been announced.

Pokemon Red (GB)
Pokemon Blue (GB)
Pokemon Green (GB) (Japan only)
Pokemon Yellow (GB/GBC)
Pokemon Gold (GBC)
Pokemon Silver (GBC)
Pokemon Crystal (GBC)
Pokemon Trading Card Game (GBC)
Pokemon Trading Card Game 2 (GBC) (Japan only)
Pokemon Puzzle Challenge (GBC)
Pokemon Pinball (GBC)

That's 9 GB/GBC Pokemon games (11 in Japan) and only Crystal and Pinball are absent. TCG2 was only released in Japan, but an English ROM patch exists online.
