Cool. It makes me wonder why Game Freak would make changes like that.

I know nothing, but are you sure the first group of quoted text is not text from another route or rematch text from Fisherman Ralph?

Unused text was found by Seven.
This is located in the middle of Route 32 events.
And he said he couldn't find this text's pointer from game.

This is from the guy who blocks Route 32 before beat Violet gym and get the egg.
He doesn't care about the player beat Sprout tower or not in GSC.

Maybe other text was changed in Crystal version, too.

There are a lot of minor text changes between G/S and Crystal. I havent done an in-depth look (although Ive picked up a fair amount from Yellow: 1 2), but there are various typos, gender fixes (guy kid, etc), and minor rewords (e.g., Schoolboy Alan: Theres a lot you cant learn just by reading books Theres more to learning than just reading books). A more exhaustive search would be welcome.

Speaking of unused GSC texts, some months ago I posted about a text that is seemingly unused in the Lavender Radio Tower:

"Wow! A full rack
of POKéMON CDs and

This must be the
reference library."

I couldn't find it in the game at all and using a map editor shows no sign data belonging to it. Probably more floors were actually planned and this is a leftover?
