Summary: I bought this game (Pokémon Emerald GBA) together with Pokémon Firered and Pokémon Leafgreen. My boyfriend is a really big fan of all the Pokémon games. He played them all except for those 3 because he never had a GBA. Now that he got one, I bought these 3 games and he loves them, He's really pleased with it and finally he got the opportunity to play all the games. I really recommend to al the Pokémon fans.
Summary: As we all know pokemon is a game that doesn't change much through the generations same battling, Same Routes. But this game made a big break in that tradition. The game was sunny all the way through no day and night changes. They made a dark type pokemon very common. BUT THEY STILL HAVE MAGIKARP. The game is quite long and the map is probably one of the biggest there is. The bad thing thing though is probably the weakness of the data.
Excerpt: "...to go and visit the pokemon professor in the lab somewhere nearby in the village, but he's not there. You find him and he gives you a pokemon; you can choose between a fire, water or grass pokemon. You then set off on your adventure with your new pokemon and catch others and train them, in order to win battles against other trainers.

Pros: pokemon, new world and new pokemon
Cons: i play it on DS and can't trade or anything .
Summary: Pokemon emerald is far better than any pokemon game so far. It has better graphics,better storyline and an all new battle island known as the battle frontier. It is quite annoying at the start as it dosent liven up until you have the first gym badge. Its good for experienced or beginner pokemon fans. A must-buy game and you can battle a friend.
Summary: Gameplay - 8/10 Lots of trainers to battle and more 2 vs 2 battles than Ruby/Sapphire. Random wild pokemon battles can get annoying. Will take around 10-15 hours to get to battle the Elite Four, plenty to do after that though. Graphics - 8/10 Slight improvement, but pokemon animations are a welcome addition. Weather effects are good too.
Summary: Pokemon Emerald is for fans of the series who have to own all the games OR for people who don't own the previous 2 titles (Ruby and sapphire). Emerald is like a happy collaberation of these two titles, as well as having its own new features. It is what pokemon Crystal was to silver and gold and what yellow was to blue and red (although yellow was made to follow the tv series a bit more) If you already own ruby and sapphire but you can't be bothered playing through either...
