Similar to the core games, but much has been added. 0

Positive: - core Pokemon gameplay is as solid as ever - gyms have new puzzles and leaders have some different Pokemon - story is a combination of Ruby and Sapphire, only better - little bits here and there that make it a whole different experience than Ruby/Sapphire - Negative: - day/night feature is (still) absent - still struggles to live up to Gold and Silver - Pokemon has got to be one of the biggest franchises of all time. That franchise also tends to follow a pattern: 1) release two versio...

We eventually grew out of it, though; I don't think a singl...

Third time's the charm. 0

As most pokemon fans know, the first two generations of pokemon had two matching games, followed by an enhanced remake of them, with extra features. Pokemon Emerald is no different. in fact, it runs with the extra features and expands them greatly. Anyone who has played The Ruby or Sapphire versions of this game would know the story: Two rouge teams, named Magma and Aqua, where one is good and the other evil, and switching between these roles in the games, tries to awaken the game's mascot Pokem...
