      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A new challenging adventure in the same region

      ----------------------
      When I bought it
      ----------------------

      I originally bought this game after it was first released having previously played Pokemon Sapphire, I believe I paid around £30 for it at the time and even bought it again from eBay after I lost the original cartridge.

      --------------------------
      Price and availability
      --------------------------

      As the game is no longer in print it is very difficult to buy a brand new copy as I've seen them selling for £150 on Amazon for a sealed copy, buying it used from ebay would cost about £20 due to the number of counterfeit cartridges out there.

      --------------------------
      Pokemon availability
      --------------------------

      This game changes the pokemon that are available in the wild and even some of the legendary pokemon available to catch, in Ruby and Sapphire you would be able to catch Groudon or Kyogre respectively depending on the version of the game you are playing, in Emerald it is slightly different as you have to go and awaken Rayquaza and have it stop Kyogre and Groudon fighting (who had been released by Maxie and Archie of Team Magma and Aqua) and therefore stop the weather effects created by the two legendary pokemon, once this is done you can make the trip back to Sky Pillar where Rayquaza is located and catch it (it is at level 70)

      -----------------
      New features
      -----------------

      Much of the game remains the same as the original apart from that you fight both Team Magma and Team Aqua in this game, there are some new areas to explore such as Terra Cave, Marine Cave, the Mirage Tower, Desert Underpass, Studio Cave and the Battle Frontier which adds extra challenges to be taken after the Elite Four have been defeated.

      There is also the option to re-battle gym leaders and other trainers up to four times with the Match Call feature of the PokeNav, this adds extra opportunities for last minute training before you take on the Elite Four

      -----------
      Summary
      -----------

      Good Points
      * Adds something to do after the Elite Four have been defeated
      * Rayquaza available before the Elite Four
      * Re-battle trainers with Match Call

      Bad Points:
      * Easy to get a fake version of the game

      -------------------
      Overall Opinion
      -------------------

      This is a very addictive game and kept me playing for weeks when it was first released, I have just finished playing it again and enjoyed it as much as I did back then so I will be giving this game 5 DooYoo Stars.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Overall a good game, able to get nearly anyone into pokemon games!

        For a SP console, this is a very good game. When I was young I found myself playing this game an awful lot! It is a good game because there is quite a long storyline and there is so much to do on there! Once you have completed the pokemon league you get to go to this new place where you have to do even more battles to win ribbons! Sadly, i do not know what happens after this part as I was never able to complete this bit!

        This game is also good because if your friends have it you can connect up with them and battle and trade with them.

        The graphics on this game arnt too bad, however if you are used to playing the DS pokemon games and then go back to this one, you will notice the difference. It is still a very good game though and in my opinion one of the best pokemon games out.

        The story is good, but if you have played all of the other pokemon games, then gone back to this, you will very quickly get bored! It is just basically defeating gym leaders. If however you haven't played any of them before then I would start at this game. This is a good game, sure to get you addicted to pokemon!

        Would I recommend this game?

        Yes, its a very good pokemon game and one of the best out. Its very original and I think its that, that makes it great!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        a great game to finish off the 3rd gen

        Pokemon Emerald is the third installment for the third generation of pokemon games. The third installements of all pokemon generations are those that are waited for endlessly as they usually encompass everything from the first two installments, and then add things that make it so much better.

        This game did not dissapoint in this factor. Emerald introduced the Battle Frontier. A place for the budding young trainer to challenge battle leaders, and to tes their battle skills against more than capable opponents. This of course came with certain rewards. by beating these leaders you are awarded with BP's or Battle Points. Which can then be used to gain certain items, which can greatly alter your chances of beating your opponents.

        Also in this game is the chance to obtain one of the johto starters, when you complete your pokedex(minus jirachi & deoxys). This is of great use, as it is otherwise impossible in GBA games to obtain a johto starter.

        Also introduced was an expansion to the safari zone, this also re-introduced around 10 pokemon, previously only available in the 2nd generation of games.

        This game is a must have for any fan looking to complete his/her pokedex.

      A role playing game similar to all the other main Pokemon titles, the story for Pokemon: Emerald takes place over land and sea and pits you against the Team Aqua and Team Magma from Saphire and Ruby. This time around, Pokemon will show off their moves prior to battle, perhaps as a sort of taunt.
