Product Description

Product Description

Pokemon Emerald is an extension of Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire -- you'll travel to an all-new region and explore as you face off against Team Aqua and Team Magma. An aspiring Pokemon trainer moves to tiny Littleroot Town and discovers all-new Pokemon to train and compete with -- now he's on the road to being a great trainer!

Are you looking for a new Pokemon challenge? With a focus on continuing the story, Pokemon Emerald brings together elements and characters from Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. Emerald is the third adventure to take place in the Hoenn region, and it features all new areas and exciting new plot twists.

In Pokemon Emerald, your character is an aspiring Pokemon Trainer and new inhabitant of Littleroot Town. You'll enter the neighborhood amid a truckload of boxes, eager to explore your new environment. Eventually, you'll stumble upon a challenge that forces you to select from three Pokemon -- Torchic, Mudkip or Treecko. Once you decide, you can begin your quest to become the world's greatest Pokemon Trainer.

If you've played the Ruby or Sapphire installments, you'll recognize many of the locations in Emerald. Although familiar, quite a lot has changed in Emerald. The most exciting addition is Battle Frontier. No matter how well you think you know Hoenn, you will always discover something entirely new. Plus, you may even encounter a new Gym Leader in your journeys.

You are up against stiff competition in Emerald. Team Magma and Team Aqua once again look to disrupt the peaceful civility of Hoenn. Unlike Ruby and Sapphire, both gangs have set up camp in this adventure. That means you'll be facing double-the-evil, double-the-clever, scheming plans. To really spice things up, Emerald has added sightings of the rare Pokemon Rayquaza. The plot thickens!

The Battle Frontier of Pokemon Emerald brings together seven battle facilities. Each area provides a unique battle experience. Special Trainers called Frontier Brains head each facility and they will test every aspect of your combat skills. Your victories will be memorialized in the form of Frontier Symbols, and you must defeat the Frontier Brain at each location several times in order to earn your awards.

With new locations like Battle Dome, Battle Arena, Battle Factory, and Battle Pike, Pokemon Emerald will throw you awesome new twists and challenges. The new adventure in Hoenn is full of adventure and has plenty of opportunities to hone your battle skills. Just keep your composure, explore the island, and you can become the world's greatest Pokemon Trainer.

Everytime Pokemon gets two different version, there is usually a third superior version that comes out later. When Pokemone Red and Blue got here, Yellow version came a little later. Likewise with Gold and Silver. Crystal version came. Now with Ruby and Sapphire, Emerald is here.

We all know the basic story of Pokemon. Through the versions released, it hasn't really changed at all. At least in terms of storyline. You choose to be a boy or a girl, and then you'll begin your journey to become a pokemon master.

Anyone who has played Ruby and Sapphire basically already know the kinks to it. This review is aimed at those people. There isn't much that's been changed in Emerald. Of course there's the fact that some Pokemon you just aren't able to get a hold of without the other two versions. You can link up to Pokemon Colliseum (which is nice) and you can also use the wireless adapator to trade from all the versions on the GBA.

The graphics have been slightly improved. They look much closer to the SNES graphics than before. Their much clearer than in Ruby and Sapphire and their more crisp. Not quite so many.

There is one major gripe with Emerald. You've got to be a die-hard Pokemon fan to want to play it. If you've already gone through Ruby and Sapphire once, the question is, do you want to travel through what is virtually the same journey again? If the answer is yes, then go on out and pick up Pokemon Emerald now. If the answer is no, Pokemon Emerald may not be the best investment. It would be better if you waited for the next batch of versions to come.

This story has many similarities to Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire, but it differs in some aspects as much as it's the same.

Well, after riding along in the bumpy moving trucjk, you finally arrive to your new home in Littleroot Town in the Hoenn Region. You go off to meet Professer Birch, only to learn he is out doing fieldwork. You head into the field only to find the professer being attacked by a wild Pokemon. You must save him, so you grab a Poke ball from his bag and send out the Pokemon inside. You defeat the wild Pokemon with ease. Professer then thanks you by letting you keep the Pokemon you borrowed earlier, and you head out into the world to face all the trainers and obtain all the Pokemon possible. Along the way, you meet many friends and make many rivals. You challenge Gym Leaders to prove your worth as a trainer by earning their special badges - only the winning trainers are permitted to hold. But this road is treacherous, and along the way, evil teams release legendary Pokemon, Groudon and Kyogre. The battle rages, but the legendary Rayquaza arrives and quells the fight with its incredible power. After that, you head up to Ever Grande to win the Pokemon League, to become the ultimate champion.

After you become a master, you are invited by a man named Scott to an island called the Battle Frontier, the frontline of battling. You must obtain their special symbols by winning rigourous fights.... It's the ultimate test of skill as a trainer. But you choose to take this test. This is your dream. So make it come true.

I have played FireRed, Ruby, and Sapphire, and have watched friends over their shoulders play the others, and I was blown away with Emerald the moment I turned it on. Even the introduction (with the bike and the Pokemon around it) was eye-catching and made me want to play for hours on end.

Overall, this game has had the best animations of all of the Pokemon games. They were colorful and creative, and they kept me interested.

Yes, it was extremely difficult compared the FireRed, especially when trying to beat the Elite Four. I recorded at seven tries at their battles, and was beginning to feel frustrated. I went out, explored Hoenn, and came back with a new determination and a little something extra. (Hint, hint)

My absolute favorite part was the addition to the Safari Zone. The new Pokemon hidden in the grass, the water, and the rocks, were ones that I had mostly never seen before.

I did lose interest after beating the Elite Four and exploring the Battle Frontier. The fact that you do not gain EXP from the battles in any of the buildings made me kinda mad. (You also do not record the opponent's Pokemon in your PokeDex, which is the whole point at the end.) It's worth it, nonetheless, because you experience the Battle Frontier and find several new Pokemon that you can catch and record.

I still have not found Latios/Latias yet, and am looking for Kyogre and Groudon. (Hint: Weather been stormy? Check out the STATION.)

Once again, I was excited and enthralled with a Pokemon game, and I cannot wait until the next enstallment. I heard it is Pokemon Diamond for the Nintendo that true?

Anyway, it is definetly NOT a money-waster. Be prepared to be wowed by yet another GREAT Pokemon game!

I love this pokemon game! jeff you should try it. It has may new things in it which takes it to many new levels over Ruby and Sapphire, (both great games). I like the pokeball capture graphics that were added that is a very nice touch.

The addition of the berry mixing master is also a great one. You can make some level 99 berries with him and really get your pokemons stats up for contest.

One thing I do not like about all pokemon games is the secret or hidden pokemon. In this case it is Deoxy, Ho oh, Lugia, and Mew. No way to get this unless you get to goto New York city, or get a chance to get to pokemon rocks america, Deoxy last year, Ho oh and Lugia this year. Not fair that all these things are over like a million miles form me and most other players. If they do not want people using the cheat things like action replay the they need to make better deals with the pre sales or retailers to get these special hidden pokemon to the public. It is not our fault they want us to collect them all... Now make it a little easyer so we can lay off the gamesharks.

Well other then that last piece I really loved the game. It is nice to beable to fill the hoenn dex and get to pick one of the johto starters... I picked cyndiguil.

Enjoy the game and be sure to check out all the other pokemon games like Fire red, leaf green, ruby and sapphire. Soon pokemon XD coming out for game cube... cna not wait for that can we fans?!
