View Full Version : Will you stil play ?

2nd April 2007, 5:02 PM
Will you still play R/S/E/LG/FR/Col/XD When D/P comes out ? As for me, no. I'll probaly only use them for trading....

2nd April 2007, 5:03 PM
Every so often I may go back to the games.

2nd April 2007, 5:03 PM
Definitely, for shiny hunting!

2nd April 2007, 5:07 PM
Yes, I will be. Mainly for shiny hunting, and trading over certain Pokemon and items for GTS or my personal gain.

2nd April 2007, 5:09 PM
Yeah, I think I will. I'll probably end up switching between them... After all, I still have a Battle Frontier to conquer, and 294more Pokémon to catch :P

2nd April 2007, 5:11 PM
I'll still be playing Emerald b/c of cloning, and trading to D/P.

2nd April 2007, 5:52 PM
Yes, I'll still use them for shiny hunting and of course cloning.

2nd April 2007, 5:57 PM
I still have to, at least, play them to get all the unobtainables in DP. Plus, there's also the fact that I have both a DS and a GBA, so 3rd Gen in the GBA, 4th in the DS. Works quite well, I think (except when I'm hunting for version-specifics [namely insertion Pokes]).

2nd April 2007, 5:57 PM
probably still play it for a while, but it's alredy getting old

2nd April 2007, 6:00 PM
emerald: cloning, EV training, quest for final gold in frontier still, any further breeding requirements.

FR/LG will still get very limited use.

R/S for secret base setup purposes.

I have pre-ordered both D/P from pokemoncenter.com so I'll get them when they arrive. I hope they come out with something similar to pokemon box for the wii as that's a nice tool to have.

2nd April 2007, 7:05 PM
Indeed I will be.

2nd April 2007, 7:37 PM
Yes i'll play emerald still to shiny hunt

2nd April 2007, 7:40 PM
Maybe,but most likely just to get my last frontier symbol -_-

2nd April 2007, 7:43 PM
Maybe, but very little. D/P will take up all of my attention.

2nd April 2007, 7:45 PM
I'll continue to play them, of course. Mainly my Emerald though because thats where I'm trying to finish up my National Dex so I can trade over to my future Diamond game.

2nd April 2007, 8:17 PM
I'll play Emerald until the BF is complete.

2nd April 2007, 8:31 PM
Yea, mostly for shiny hunting and maybe items.

2nd April 2007, 8:38 PM
Yes, I'm not going to abandon my other games, lol. ^_^

2nd April 2007, 10:21 PM
I will of course. I'm more used to my 3rd Gen games anyway, since I've been playing them for a couple years..

Twilit Dragoon
2nd April 2007, 10:26 PM
Of course, I will never abandon them. I still need all the silver/gold symbols.

2nd April 2007, 10:33 PM
Ill go back to my emerald, its secret ID makes Shineys more common, so ill catch and transfer, and clone, lots and lots of clones... *person watches me clone and transfer on emerald* (person) Hey, ive seen this movie!

mrrrrrrr KENNEDY
2nd April 2007, 10:43 PM
shiny hunting and other things but im bored with the storys in the 3rd gen games

2nd April 2007, 10:54 PM
i will most likely as soon as d/p get boring ill switch back remember how fun d/p are and that cycle will continue

2nd April 2007, 10:54 PM
Of course. I have plenty of things I can still do in Emerald, Sapphire and Firered.

3rd April 2007, 12:18 AM
Oh yeah I'll use The Emerald For the cloning glitch :) almost forgot about it for a second :0

3rd April 2007, 12:25 AM
It's hard to tell. Maybe.

3rd April 2007, 1:00 AM
Lol Impossible for me not to play the 3rd gens, especially for shiny hunting purposes. Heh the legends will be a huge focus as they aren't available in D/P as well as tangela!!! Some pokes may be easier to shiny hunt in 3rd gen too *game corner pokes*. Other than that there's the standard reasons of transfering items and preparing pokes that need move tutor moves.

Sapphire Phoenix
3rd April 2007, 2:51 AM
I might if I get bored :/

3rd April 2007, 3:14 PM
Of course! For cloning, shiny hunting, transfering PKMN over, and mainly the BF. Plus, maybe training some Pokemon.

3rd April 2007, 3:35 PM
Yeah. Probably after awhile, I will.

3rd April 2007, 3:37 PM
i might play them again after a while when I think my emerald is worth playing

3rd April 2007, 3:57 PM
Yeah but I don't play often anymore. I've gotten myself busy the last few days. But I'll still play them.

Gregory ;026;

3rd April 2007, 3:58 PM
LG is my favourite game so probably I will play sometimes. If I must be honest, I don`t like R/S/E. It is my least fav version of pokemon saga that why probably I will not play it anymore. Diamond version will take my time soon.

3rd April 2007, 4:10 PM
Yeah, just for trading.

3rd April 2007, 4:18 PM
i will keep playing emerald, because i want to complete the battle frontier.
my sapphire and firered will only be used for shinyhunting and cstching legends with a good nature

3rd April 2007, 4:23 PM
For certain pokémon I want to transfer, I will use the GBA games.

3rd April 2007, 4:24 PM
I always go back, theres nothing like a good game of silver when you're bored.

3rd April 2007, 4:47 PM
Most for shiny hunting and for trading pokes to D/P.

Canis Lupus
3rd April 2007, 4:53 PM
Yes, to catch Pokemon to trade over, and because they are still fun. ^.^

3rd April 2007, 4:56 PM
Well I don't have a DS. So yeah I will

3rd April 2007, 5:20 PM
I will play them.

3rd April 2007, 6:26 PM
This should be a poll.

4th April 2007, 3:04 AM
Trade over my Poke's in Emerald, FireRed & Sapphire, but other then that no.

I already beat the Gym & Battle Fronter in Emerald

4th April 2007, 3:28 AM
nothing much i can do in fr..breeed a little and get some pokemon i forgot to catch in the old game. mostly play it to transfer between pokemon or trade between XD

4th April 2007, 5:26 AM
Lol how do you even make a poll ? I know that you go to the " Make new poll or whatver " But what do you do after that ?

4th April 2007, 5:28 AM
Yes.. for Shiny hunting and breeding

The King of Ho-oh's
4th April 2007, 5:28 AM
I will restart my sapphire version. so i can SR for
a shiny Kyogre.

metal mewtwo
4th April 2007, 6:48 AM
im not ever going to adbandon my games until i have either got every pokemon or gotten all gold frontier symbols

4th April 2007, 7:17 AM
I don't even know if I'm getting Diamond. But if I do, I most certainly will not abandon them.

4th April 2007, 7:23 AM
Mostly for some starters and lengendarys.

kill and run
4th April 2007, 4:16 PM
hell ya i am going to play them still cause those are my shiny hunting games lol

4th April 2007, 8:17 PM
i will for shinies, starters, TMs, and legends.
The games will still have a use

4th April 2007, 8:30 PM

Gotta transfer my Bodybuilt team to Pal Park!

And I'll still love battling with them in Colosseum/XD *flex*

4th April 2007, 10:55 PM
Probably yes.
Not much to do, though.
But I will never know what will happen someday....

4th April 2007, 11:20 PM
I probaly will a lot because I didn't want to restart any of my game with good pokemon on them or accomplishments, but after D/P come out I will transfer all of my pokemon over and I can play through the games again.

5th April 2007, 7:18 AM
Yeah, but only for shiny hunting and breeding. Or the BF. I love that place.

5th April 2007, 12:06 PM
yes, but not as much as now.

5th April 2007, 12:34 PM
Well, I still play Yellow and Crystal regularly...

So, yeah, I definitely will. I don't believe in sequels superseding the originals.

5th April 2007, 12:46 PM
when i completethe pokedex on them then off to the dark damp draw to die

no i cant do that or can i

5th April 2007, 2:53 PM
Yes, I will still play them, I will be using it for breeding purpose, and some other things, such as cloning in Emerald (Don't flame me, cloning is not a bad thing)

5th April 2007, 4:03 PM
I will, but only for breeding and cloning and shiny hunting etc...

5th April 2007, 5:45 PM
I will. I still need to beat the Battle Fortiner, in Emblem.

Azure Wolf
5th April 2007, 7:16 PM
I will play it a bit....only a bit

6th April 2007, 12:37 AM
I'll play my Sapphire still, even after I move all my stuff over. Besides just having it to farm for Pokemon to transfer, I'll probably restart it a few times, breeze through, and get a TM or two to bring over to Diamond.

That'll work, right? If something's holding a TM when I transfer it, it should go over too.

6th April 2007, 12:40 AM
If you bring a TM from Diamond which is #51+ You wont be able to. But bringing TMs from R/S/E should.

6th April 2007, 1:21 AM
i would probably use it to train the pokemon available on them (as in get IVs perfect for D/P, train on colosseum/xd, then transfer to D/P and get the moveset right if it includes D/P moves)

6th April 2007, 6:00 PM
I still will, Using the move tutors in the BF will help alot. Catching all the lenedaries and any other pokemon that I can't get in Diamond.( I probly won't get wifi until late may)

I am going to put it to good use, may even continue breeding/EV training in Emerald because I'm fermiliar with the areas.

Azure Wolf
7th April 2007, 10:45 AM
I think I'll play for the legends and regi's, because of regigigas

7th April 2007, 11:01 AM
I will start a new game everytime for tm's and masterball's

Raden Surya
7th April 2007, 12:33 PM
I will play D/P, but I won't leave Emerald. After all those achievements I have done in BF....

7th April 2007, 12:38 PM
I probably wont :( I think I'll trade my Mew,Celebi, and all my lv.00's too D/P than stop playing them :(

7th April 2007, 12:58 PM
I will still continue to play Emerald.

8th April 2007, 6:45 AM
Score! My friend sold me his Emerald for $5. Now I'm rushing to get as much done on this thing as I can before my DS time will be devoted to Diamond.

Though, I'll probably play this Emerald and my Sapphire for awhile after I get Diamond. Even if just to get everything ready for Pal Park.

9th April 2007, 3:29 PM
Most likely not. They'll probably just collect dust until I need to transfer pokemon to D/P.

Heaven's Illusion
9th April 2007, 4:36 PM
Of-course I will! I'm going to use the game for raiseing pokemon to Level 100 then sending them to my Pearl. I will also use the game for IV and EV training of certain pokemon. Shiny hunting as well.

9th April 2007, 4:44 PM
Yes, if possible I continue to breed in emerald because I have excess to XD and quick leveling up. And I know that I won't stop laying emerald till I have all symbols.

Haruka of Hoenn
9th April 2007, 4:51 PM
I might play the previous generation games, but not as much. I will use them mainly for trading and getting certain pokemon.

9th April 2007, 5:11 PM
yes i will but to only get certain pokemon and move tutours.

9th April 2007, 10:39 PM
Can you send pokemon from D/P to R/S/E if they dont have any moves,items etc from D/P ?

10th April 2007, 3:13 AM
Nope. Only for trading/cloning.
