Pokémon Emerald User Reviews
A wide variety and selection of Pokémon across the board. You are able to capture some decent Pokémon early on and some really good ones mid to late game. The Gym leaders put up a decent challenge and there's never really an instance where the A.I. Trainers use anything that would be considered cheap. It has an engaging storyline and some sprite animations that were considered revolutionary for it's time.The bad:
It is possible to break the game after the Eighth gym if you go to capture Rayquaza. For some reason, it's level was not dumbed down as it was not a required fight for the story, meaning it is at Level 70. Which means, if you catch it then and there, nothing will be ablest to stop you until post-game. A minor oversight, but not enough to detract from the game itself.
Also, not gonna be filling out most of your Pokédex in one run. For some reason, your rival never fully evolves their starter, and you never see the other starter during the game at all.
Pokémon Emerald is often what I consider to be the most overlooked game in the series. At the time it was released, most people were "burned out of Pokémon" as Nayrman214 of BrainScratch Commentaries would put it, so it was often over looked. Which is a shame, really, because it's one of the series high points in my opinion.
Pokémon Emerald took the essence of what Ruby and Sapphire did and added more good to it, while revising the old parts and still keeping that Pokémon feel to it. Among the revisions were pictures added to Items, the Pokémon sprites were animated like Crystal, revised Gym...
Well, this game came out 2 years after Ruby and Sapphire and let me tell you, it helped. The game improved itself allot, I will list a few things that I found amazing with this game.
-Pokemon moved when you saw them (like in pokemon crystal)
-Things to do after you beat elite 4
-You can catch Kyogre and Groudon
-Sprites look better
Meh, nothing to really put here. Only a couple of things.
-Music sometimes is annoying
-Legendaries can be hard to find
Pokemon Emerald is the 3rd generation of Pokemon. You don't need to worry if this is your first Pokemon game as you do not need any prior knowledge for the games. It would be nice though, as there are over 350 Pokemon to collect and there are easily over 200 in this game. Through this review, you will learn how to use your pokemon and how to help it. There will be a few sections where I will rate them out of 10, so you don't have to search around for what you want.
Moving around the map is as simple as using the D-Pad. You can go anywhere you want, depending on how far y...
- Good Graphics
- Extra Pokemon unobtainable in Ruby and Sapphire
- The Battle Frontier
- Lots to do during and after beating the game
- Re-battling gyms
- Link Battles, Trading and Record Mixing
- A good storyline
- To complete the pokedex trading is needed
- Not to much extra from Ruby and Sapphire
Emerald was released not long after Ruby and Sapphire, improving many of the things they were lacking, and continuing the tradition of high quality Pokemon games.
The Gameplay in Emerald is similar to that of all the other Pokemon games. You walk/run/ride around the region collecting Pokemon and beating contests, gyms and eventually the Elite 4. The battles have been improved with new moves in this generation as well as more Pokemon then ever to use. The contests which came in with Ruby and Sapphire are still there and are a few feature when you are bored of battling. Another featur...
- Great graphics for GBA
- You can choose between Latias or Latios
- Easy to follow storyline
- Wireless battles and trades
- Able to re-battle gyms
- Many Legendaries available
- Having to trade to obtain all Pokemon
- Too similar to Ruby/Sapphire
- Battle Frontier too challenging
I think this game is worth buying. I have had no doubts about it what-so-ever. If you've played Pokemon from the very beginning, then this must end up in your collection. Even if you're a big fan of the TV show, this is a good place to start.
It's obviously, very similar to Ruby and Sapphire but with many extras. You can visit the Battle Frontier for a real challenge. You can also re-battle gym leaders if you think you can handle another round, which is a very nice extra. Rebattling gym leaders is perfect for training your Pokemon, as well as defeating the Pokemon League multiple times with ...
Pokemon Animations, choose which Lati to find.The bad:
You must trade to obtain every Pokemon.Summary:
Through the 10 or so proper Pokémon games that Nintendo has released for the Game Boy, then the Game Boy Color, and now the Game Boy Advance, the crux of the series has remained unshakable. A preteen hero goes out into the world, complete with parental blessings, to become the world's number one trainer of a bizarre, varied, and mysterious race of creatures called Pokémon. Along the way, our hero has some funky adventures. Essentially a singular director's cut version of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, Pokémon Emerald will feel especially familiar, and as such, it will likely hold greater appeal...
- Like the title suggested, it is worthy of being a true Pokemon game!
- The graphics are nice for a GBA
- There is a story line; easily follow able
- Lots of side-quests to do
- Ability to record all 386 Pokemon
- Able to catch Kyogre, Groudon, and Rayquaza
- Battle Animations
- Battle Frontier
- Ability to re-battle gyms
- Great wireless multiplayer with 2 vs. 2 battles or even event matches
- Extra game modes
- It isn't always directly clear where to go
- Sometimes you must walk miles, miles and even more miles before reaching the next city, and crossing all those pokemon can get annoying
- Pretty similar to Ruby/Sappshire in gameplay and storyline.
Overall, it is a game worthy of buying.
The game is challenging, yet easy to master, because the purpose of the game is to get to the next city, level up your pokemon, and become a Pokemon champion.
Both kids and adults love these kinds of things, because it holds typical RPG elements such as levelling up your pokemon. It's done in a nice way, because they evolve as they get a higher level, learn new moves and some are effective against another type, whilst others aren't.
So in order to play the game optimal, you must conduct a variated team, build not only upon strength, but also upon strateg...
