4.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Pokemon Game So Far, November 8, 2005
A Kid's Review
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
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 DS...is that true?

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