Background

The fifth title in the Advance generation of Pokemon games, Pokemon Emerald is the third part of the trilogy Ruby and Sapphire started. The game features a cocktail of Pokemon available from Ruby and Sapphire in the same manner that Pokemon Yellow did for Red and Blue.

Though Pokemon Emerald incorporates content from Ruby and Sapphire, the title is played as a flagship entry from the beginning, complete with the same three starter Pokemon to choose from. However, the legendary Pokemon Rayquaza has been introduced as a key plot element for the Hoenn region, as the player must summon it in order to restore balance between the forces of Groudon and Kyogre.

Players can trade still Pokemon from the previous GameBoy Advance releases (Ruby, Sapphire, FireRed and LeafGreen) using the Game Boy Advance link cable or wireless adapter. Emerald can also supports trading with Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness for the GameCube.

The biggest addition in Emerald is the Battle Frontier, accessible after the player defeats Hoenn's Pokemon League Champion. In addition to Battle Tower content from previous titles, the Frontier includes six new areas where players can engage in 3-vs-3 Pokemon trainer battles to earn Battle Points which can be redeemed for rare items including those which can teach Pokemon with new moves.

Gameplay

Choose a pokemon to start with, and take it out into the field to train up, and use it to catch other pokemon. Battle to raise the strength of your monsters, to increase your collection, or against your friends for fun.

Features

  • A new Pokemon Battle Frontier that is more advanced and challenging will test the skills of the best Pokemon Trainers.
  • Players will need to train hard to battle against the new seven Frontier Brain competitors in order to obtain all of the symbols in the Battle Frontier.
  • Bring full cross-compatibility to this game by connecting to Pokemon Ruby, Pokemon Sapphire, Pokemon Colosseum, Pokemon FireRed and Pokemon LeafGreen.
  • Wireless multiplayer trading and battling with up to four players using a wireless adapter.

Pokémon Emerald is often what I consider to be the most overlooked game in the series. At the time...
