    Honestly, I dont play the 3rd gen games anymore. Mainly for two reasons;

    Firstly, I really enjoy playing D/P and love anything about the 4th gen. So I really dont have time and dont fancy playing R/S/E. Secondly, my 3rd gen games are all European ones so I cant use Pal Park to transfer 3rd gen Pokemon to my american Diamond game.

    I only "use" them to catch the GBA Insertion Pokemon.

    I have to play the 3rd gen games right now beause the top screen of my DS is dead basicaly.
    But i'm starting to like it the more i play, cooler pokemon than d/p, Better legendaries The starters are cooler than d/p starters, And i just like the overall "feel" of the game.

    I play them because I need to get good Pokemon for Diamond, and I just love the Battle Frontier, and the actual games themselves.

    In Leaf Green, i'm trying something I have not tried on any other game: Breeding. My whole team consists of pokemon I have hatched from eggs: Togetic, Blissey, Growlithe and Swinub.

    In Sapphire, I am trying to get my team of 6 up to Lv. 100.

    In Emerald, I am trying to conquor the Battle Pike.

    let's see:
    1 to migrate things to my D/P <-- already done though.
    2 to clone with my emerald version.
    3 for softresetting shinies.
    4 and they are good games.

    I keep playing Emerald because:
    -Great storyline and the ability to have re-matches with Gym Leaders
    -The Battle Frontier
    -The quick battles
    -All the different and nice scenery (Route 119 for example)
    -The older style of contests and making PokeBlocks

    And basically all the other nice features that Emerald (and Ruby/Sapphire) had.

    And, because it's fun. I like to start a Pokemon game fresh, but I won't start my Pearl over.
    That's exactly how I feel xD

    I still really like the 3rd Gen. games, and I switch between playing them and my Pearl version. I also use them for Pal Park and legendaries and such.

    Well i play it most the time to take part in contests because they rock but without the dancing and stuff from DP.
    I also like to restart it and level up Pokemon to trade to DP through PAL PARK.
    And just for the pure fun of it.

    I still play my Emerald because I love breeding and training new Pokemon for the Battle Frontier, trying to figure out which is better and such. I also love the contests and having my Pokemon painted in the museum. :)

    Some percent of the Serebii population uses a signature like this. If you are or aren't part of the percentile, copy and paste this into your signature.

    I like playing to get some easier shinies to transfer to DP. I like doing contests, too, but I rarely do.
    are you who you want to be?

    I play to get all of the Starters,
    To get shiny Legendarys,
    Battle Frontier,
    and the Emerald Cloning Glitch.

    This is what keeps me going in R/S/E.

    I play them because I love them. I still play all the Pokemon games. The third generation is one of my faves, it has a lot of awesome stuff in it.
