Product Description

Product Description

Pokemon Emerald takes place in the Hoenn region and features all-new areas and exciting new plot twists. The story begins when a young aspiring Pokemon trainer moves to Littleroot Town. Crammed amid a truckload of boxes, our hero enters the foreign neighborhood eager to explore. Shortly into your journey a challenge arises and you must choose from three Pokemon -- Torchic, Mudkip or Treecko -- and begin a quest to become the world's best Pokemon Trainer. During your quest you'll enter the Battle Frontier, where you'll need every bit of your strategy knowledge and cunning to win. Review

Over the many years since its initial release the Pokemon series has slowly evolved into one of the most expansive and in-depth role-playing games available on any format. Pokemon Emerald is a sort of director’s cut of Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire, in much the same way that Pokemon Crystal relates to Pokemon Gold and Silver or Pokemon Yellow to Pokemon Red and Blue.

Although the storyline is similar to Ruby and Sapphire its focus is on the legendary pokemon Rayquaza, rather than Kyogre and Groudon. Not only does this alter the storyline in several important places but it also changes where and how often you can catch certain pokemon. Some of the trainers have moved around as well and there are also new battle animations for all the pokemon when they fight.

The most important new feature is the Battle Frontier and the seven Frontier Brain competitors. This is for real pokemon experts and takes the form of a seven different tournaments against some especially powerful pokemon. The reward is some additional badges that further increase your powers as a trainer.

Unlike Ruby and Sapphire the game is also compatible with the Game Boy Advance wireless adaptor, which makes it easier to battle and trade and also gives you access to the Union chat room, for you to fill with real pokefans. With many other smaller additions and tweaks, such as a National Pokedex that includes listing for every Pokemon in existence, this is just the thing for pokemon obsessives of all ages. -- Harrison Dent

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds like R.P. McMurphy bought a fake... 20 Jun. 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Pokemon Emerald ROCKS! It's got pretty much everything that a Pokemon game should have...

I'm not here to write a review though, but to say that if you buy this game and the clock does not work (ie, you set it, wait 5 minutes and check to see if it's keeping time), then it is very probably a fake! I have two fake copies of this game- a grey cartridge fake from Korea, and a greeen cartridge one that came (via ebay)from Manchester today (oddly, with a GENUINE copy of Sapphire), which I'm in the process of trying to return to the seller(they are VERY common on ebay, and some of the ads for used ones on Amazon look like people are trying to sell fakes- there are a LOT about-Pokemon is worth BILLIONS of $!) The cartridge should have its own battery powered clock in, so either the battery needs replacing, or there's no clock on the cartridge because it's stolen code on a flash cart(or similar). If the cartridge isn't transparent dark green then it's a fake- if the cartridge is green but the clock doesn't work, and the Nintendo seal on the label isn't metallic gold, and if the writing on the seal is blurry, not sharp, and the label is not on the cartridge straight, then it's a fake- usually these will be masquerading as the USA version (oval Nintendo Seal, code AGB-BPEE-USA).
If someone advertising a used one mentions the box will be sent flat packed, then it's come straight from the printers. Genuine Nintendo games have card inserts in the box to hold the cartridge, and LOTS of documentation- the Trainers guide should be a thick booklet, not just 6 or 8 pages. People selling used games DO lose instructions, yes, but the box should then at least have an insert...

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible 31 Oct. 2005
This version of Pokemon is what Crystal version was to Gold and Silver- it's the same game but with a few tweaks to the storyline, and many new features added.
The story has become even more epic- Both team Aqua and team Magma are trying to realise their dreams of expanding the sea and the land, by awakening the two 'super-ancient pokemon'- Kyogre and Groudon. And as before, the consequences are dire...
But there is a glimmer of hope- the third ancient pokemon- Rayquaza. As a trainer destined to become the champion, saving the world on the way is a simple task, yes?
There are some minor graphical improvements and alterations- the pokemon are now animated, you and your rival both have different costumes, and there are many new characters and different pokemon to catch in different locations, including an area in the safari zone where you can catch Johto-exclusive pokemon.
The main reason I bought this version, however, was the battle frontier. There are seven different types of arena with extremely varied battle styles, my favourite being the Battle Pike, where you must find a path to the end of the tunnel while braving many different hazards to your pokemon.
But of course, the fact that you can catch Lugia, Ho-oh, both Kyogre and Groudon, Mew and Deoxys in this version did attract me to this version too.
Overall, a fantastic addition to any pokemon collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 22 Feb. 2006
By A Customer
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 of them again then maybe look into Emerald as it has some interesting plot twists and a little more depth.
If you're just looking for one pokemon game and you don't quite know which to get out of ruby/sapphire/emerald, Emerald is without a doubt the best option. For money and playability.

By Jshumph
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
One of my sons had requested this on his Christmas List, not really knowing what Pokemon was all about, purchased it, he plays it on his DS and has thoroughly enjoyed every minute playing it - conquering and battling, finding and exploring - a well worthy gift!

5.0 out of 5 stars addictive! 5 Mar. 2006
By A Customer
Pokemon Emerald is a fantastic game and I can't put it down. You are able to choose your gender and your name. You'll be able to have a chance to become famous by saving the whole of Hoen. You battle Gym Leaders and capture millions of Pokemon. At the begining of the game you will save your friend Proffessor Birch by battling the Pokemon whom he was attacked by. The rare Pokemon whom you picked out of his bag he will give you to keep. This game was the best game I'd ever played because it's a fun, exciting interactive game and you'll never find anything better.
