Pokémon Emerald is the second installment of the 3rd Generation game of Pokémon. This game included never seen before features in both Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire and new adventures and missions for player to try. This game features a cocktail of Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire in the same manner as Pokémon Yellow did for Blue and Red, or Pokémon Crystal for Gold and Silver.
You are a young trainer about to leave Littleroot Town to become the greatest Pokemon Trainer in Hoenn. You need to collect Badges and capture and train Pokémon to make your way to the top of Trainer Dome, the Elite Four. On the road to success you'll be given little side-stories and quests to complete and engage in battles with the infamous villains of Hoenn Team Magma and Team Aqua. Now in a joined alliance, it is your duty to take them both down. Team Magma and Team Aqua's goal is to expand the land and water mass of the Hoenn Region using the power of the legendary Pokémon Groudon and Kyogre. But instead of battling either one of these Pokémon, you now must face the Sky Pokémon, Rayquaza, and stop the feud between the beasts of land and sea. You can now capture each of these legendary Pokémon in separate locations throughout the Hoenn region with the help of team specific items.
Pokémon Emerald is a new action packed 3rd part of the Hoenn trio, and now that Rayquaza has a larger role in the story, and you can now catch both Groudon and Kyogre, this game is the most entertainment you'll get out of Hoenn.
