Excellent

One of the few Pokemon trends which can never die

We all remember the very first Pokemon games, Red, Blue, Green, and the oh so famous Yellow Versions. We all loved how original it was, on the number of Pokemon there were, and how it brought friends together for trading (and to use the ever so famous Copy Pokemon glitch through the trading). Now, about ten games later for the Gameboy, we have the Emerald Version, a remake from Ruby and Sapphire.

And let me tell you all, the greatness is still here.

It takes all of the good things from the first two games and makes them better. This version gives you more pokemon, pokemon that actually moves (as was seen on Cyrstal), and about twice as many Legendary Pokemon.

Of course, you choose if you want to play as Brendan (the male) or May (the Female), and it starts out much like a previous version did, by saving the Professor.

A lot is the same, except for the fact that you face both Team Magma and Aqua and has a more developed story.

Now, the only thing keeping me from giving this a 10 is the fact that you can't get all of the Pokemon unless you went to a Nintendo Event.

You CANNOT fight or catch four of the new Legendary Pokemon unless you were able to get to the event. And for a fifth Lenegdary Pokemon you need to mix your save from either Ruby or Sapphire that has a special item in one of the two previous games. But if you have either a Gameshark, Action Replay, or a Codebreaker, then you are able to get these five. For anyone who doesn't... well...

I would say that this would be a very good buy, at least a rent for anyone who loved the original game. This is a game for everyone to love and enjoy.

Now, you Gotta Go Catch them All!

POKEMON EMERALD VERSION is a great pokemon game with a ton of pokemon you can catch and train. you can get a mudkip, treeko, or torchic at the beginning of the game. I personally think it's the best pokemon game ever!

Finally!!!!Rayquaza has his own game!!!!!Die groudon and kyoger!!!!Sorry if I being offensive to people who like them.I will give a little hint about the game.I will tell you about how get a glitch pokemon and I know how to get it.First you need to go to a Nintendo event and get the ticket to find mew.When you battle mew use just a normal poke ball and it will miss.but then shut the game off.(I forgot to tell you that you need to save in front of mew.)Then turn it on and battle mew.But mew will look like a wall.YOU HAVE TO USE A MASTER BALL YOUR FIRST TURN OR ELSE HE WILL KILL YOU IN 1 TURN!He is level 100 and his stats are maxed out.His name is MISSINGNO.Im not lying!!!When he comes out he has two moves:Transform and explosion.When he uses explosion,he does not die.Also,his contest stats are the max.
