Title
Shockingly, Emerald is even worse than Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire [ポケットモンスター ルビー・サファイア]. Aside from the pacing problems I have with Ruby and Sapphire, that Emerald did nothing to fix, this game presented an additional problem: the end-game is too easy. With easy access to not only both Groudon and Kyogure, but the dragon type Rayquaza as well, I found the end-game to be rather easy. Groudon and Kyogure are still level 45 when you meet them, but Rayquaza is at an astonishing level 70 (!!!) when you meet it. You can obliterate the strongest member of the Elite Four (Drake) with Rayquaza. Everybody should have a fighting type by that point, so you can prepare for the Elite Four with minimal effort.

Title
I used to turn up early with my USB, but there was always someone there before me. One time I woke up especially early, got ready as fast as I could and arrived 20 minutes before everyone else, before the doors had even opened. As people arrived they'd boot up their emulators, but one by one they'd drift over and watch me play. Hamish had ripped a new Black Eyed Peas album and we all danced to it in that tiny room while I beat the first boss. I don't remember exactly where I was up to when the bell rang but I remember it was magical, and that everyone was watching in awe. That was the furthest any of us ever got.

A couple years later someone told me you could make a save file.

    its a shame most pokemon have horrible learnsets because a lot of hoenn pokemon are really cool and just learn nothing usable, probably my biggest problem with the game. feels like i end up using a lot of the same pokemon each time i play this. at least the battle frontier opens up a lot of room for expression that the base game sorely lacks

      that's what i thought too and then I realized that using those kinds of pokemon gives the game more resistance towards the player and honestly makes it more fun

    This is one of the best Pokemon games and im tired of seeing it ignored in that debate over gen 4 and 5, I love gen 4 but Emerald is just overlooked in the debate
