rockenhard's Pokémon Emerald (Game Boy Advance) review

An improvement over ruby and sapphire

Yes I am aware this came out in 2005, but let me start by saying that I just joined Giant Bomb and want to review some games. Pokemon Emerald is much like Ruby and Sapphire, only like other sister games in the series it adds some minor improvements. The story is still the same, only this time you go up against both Team Magma and Aqua rather one or the other. As the cover might indicate Rayquaza has a very important role in this story stopping Groudon and Kyogre from destroying the world. Other additons include pokemon sprites (Something Gamefreak seems to only include in the third game of the generation) newly designed gym's and the ability to capture Groudon or Kyogre. I did not really have complaints over than the game only having so many new features. Overall a must play.

That franchise also tends to follow a pattern: 1) release two versio...
