My favourite region, Hoenn added so manny things to my Pokémon experiences, I definitely loved the game!
This game is one the best Pokemon Games I've ever played. Everything about this game is great. The only real gripe I have with it is the lack of a good postgame. Once you've beaten it, there really isn't much else to do.
My second Pokemon game, and a particularly fun one since you had to fight Team Magma AND Team Aqua. That was pretty dramatic for 14 year old me.
One of my all-time favorite games, Emerald was as close to perfect as a GBA game could get.
A solid game. The story, regions and pokémon never feel tired in this game, and adding abilities was pretty cool too. An unforgettable experience! (Although the strict assigning types to either sp. atk or atk was a bit offputting)
