Still One of the Best Pokemon Games.
Pokemon Emerald version is the definitive pokemon game for the gameboy advanced.
The 3rd generation of games in the series had Ruby and Sapphire versions, Emerald taking the best of both games and mashing them into one cart. It's also fully compatible with both Ruby and Sapphire, as well as FireRed and LeafGreen, so you can trade and battle with all 5 games.
A big draw to the gba games was the updated graphics compared to the previous games. You're headed to a new town, fresh off the moving truck and you find yourself neighbors with the region's Pokemon Professor and their kid, who will be either a boy or girl depending on what you chose when you started. Right away the world is beautiful and only gets better as you explore the region. The music for these games is also incredible and pretty unique even compared to the newest Pokemon games.
I really only have one major con to these games:
The games are old, released originally in 2004, and the game's clock runs off a battery that is most likely dried up by now. The battery only affects time related events, like berry plants growing, clocks telling time and other small events that can sometimes leave you without items you might want. Nothing important, but it's annoying.
You can get batteries pretty easily, but you have to solder a new one in, which can potentially ruin the cart if you're not careful.Read full review
