    I just think they're good games. I mainly play Emerald because it's my main 3rd Gen game and I like playing in the Battle Frontier. I play Ruby and Sapphire whenever I just want to play through the story again.

    I just really liked the 3rd gen games, I've got all versions and still play them all. Emerald is my favourite though.

    I like the creativity of some of the pokemon. I remember the first time I played Sapphire and felt a new vibe with everything. The starters were neat, plus finding out about Shedinja and millions of other Bug Types

    In fact, it's R/S/E that made me develop a love of Bug and Poison types!

    Only thing I hate is all the dang oceans >.<

    It's because Hoenn is a giant island with lots of little islands. But there are too many oceans, I agree.

    The graphics. I'm sorry but I think the graphics of 3rd gen are more "smoother" than D/P/Pt

    I still play Sapphire, because I restarted my game and now I need to get back to Mt. Chimney so I can make some more glass flutes.
    I've officially claimed Swampert!

    I keep playing Pokemon Emerald and FireRed because I want to experience using new and different Pokemon.

    Every time I play on a new file I try to use different Pokemon every time.

    I also keep playing these games because I get sick of D/P/Pt so go to them for enjoyment.

    I can't think of a good singature so please don't
    waste your time looking at this big empty space
    with only a few words that isn't worth looking at.
    But if you want to look at these useless words
    just waste some seconds of your life instead of getting a few shinies or perfect iv's or whatever
    you are doing when not looking at my signature

    I did everything there is possible to do. The only thing that keeps me playing is the Battle Tower which offers the most challenge.

    Pokémon Lottery Corner, Mirage Island and my secret base (3rd Gen Secret bases were better than 4th Gen Secret Bases IMO).
    I love my cute little Machop!

    Come on, you know Machop is cute! I mean, who couldn't love those endearing eyes? That adorable face? That loving embrace?

    Just don't call it cuddly or else it will hurt you.

    So frickin' true. Other than that and the fact i need the game in order to complete the 4th generation, this game is one of my favorites.

    I play emerald cause it was the first pokemon game I had played. For some reason, the gym leaders(to me)seemed somewhat harder without over training your pokemon(especially Tate&Liza in Emerald)than D/P/Pt. Its also more of challenge to complete the national pokedex in that game.
    Don't know what it is, but it's epic
    Entei + Raikou + ? =
    Legendaries are FTW ...not...

    Meh, epic sig fail......why did I even bother, and what's with those pesky numbers?

    The secret base especially grinding against friends without link cables and actualy getting exp from em!
    And the variety of the pokemon in each game, allowing for lots of fun ideas in solo runs, monotypes and scrambles! Oh and of course pal parking to the 4th gen. Dunno why it just seems more satisfying uploading your prized pokemon to the 4th gen to take on the world in battle tower wi-fi and what not
