Which adventure do you like best. I like the Ruby/Sapphire ones best just cause they do Pokemon Contests. Even though Emerald has all those extra features, it no longer has the Contests. What I don't get is why Emerald didn't have them in the Battle Frontier. There were Contests in the Battle Frontier on the anime so why not on the game? That makes no sense.

Because of the animated sprites! and the battle frontier too it's really fun and the extras are great!

Well for me, I'm in Ruby/Sapphire!
I like the contests, but I also like emerald because it added new extras like the battle frontier.

I chose Sapphire because it was my first pokemon game. I'm sentimental like that.
But I love Emerald for the calling option on the Pokenav and the Battle Frontier. One change that I didn't like in Emerald was the battle tents. I never used them, and I had to wait until Lilycove City to enter a contest.

Sapphire, I recentlly bought the game and It says "It's quite rare" so I'm quite lucky but while playing Emerald I see the differences but Emerald isn't that great because It has not got Contests and that Atracts Girls & Gays to Pokemon.

Pokemon Emerald is much, much better because of the Battle Frontier. Adds an extra twist in the game that is a lot harder than others think.

Last time I checked you can join contests once you get to Lilycove City.

Emerald.
Moving sprites ftw.
I so rarely do contests I didn't even notice Emerald doesn't have them.

Why do people keep saying Emerald doesn't have contests? The contests are all held in Lilycove. Emerald replaced the contests in the other cities with the much better Battle Tents, making Emerald even better.

Emerald, mainly because of Rayquaza. But all the updates it made from Ruby and Sapphire are cool also. Like when u r in the middle of 2 trainers you end up battling them both as a double battle. Thats awesome.

I loved the three due to their various plot changes. Ruby/ Sapphire interested me due to the Box and Battle Card e+ that have been released. Even Colosseum has been stirring me up. But, out of the three, Pokemon Emerald Version is the one I loved most, until now (even after the release of D/P/P.) It's been my favorite due to the accessibility of a new area - Battle Frontier. And accounting that the Contest Ranks are all on one roof. The Battle tents interested me as well. The storyline was awesome and the sprite changes made it even more exceptional. There is no doubt that IMHO, Pokemon Emerald Version is the best! :D

Emerald. I like the extra stuff to do on there + the opening battle pokemon animations n_n

But I like sapphire too only b/c it's such a pretty color x33

You confuse me. Emerald has contests. What do you think that big building is at Lilycove? Also there wern't contests at the Battle Frontier like the anime because anime=/=games it's as simple as that.

I personally prefer Emerald Version for some reason.

Ruby/Sapphire.

Emerald was only good for the additions, such as the Battle Frontier and Extra Events (It's not like many were even used, anyway)
Plus, it is a terrible game to hunt shinies in.
And it's much simpler in R/S.
I really don't feel like pointing out all of the similarities and differences right now.

Emerald of course!
I like the animated sprites and the battle frontier.

I prefer Ruby/Sapphire due to the lower level of Groudon/Kyogre.
Essentially the same game, I only use Emerald for breeding and item collection (Butterfree's Compoundeyes + Thief).

And Battle Frontier annoys me as well.

Emerald has a broken RNG which makes it ridiculously easy to catch shinies and breed amazing Pokémon :P
So Emerald it is.

THIS.

I recently figured out how to abuse the RNG as well since there is two threads at Smogon for this. Since I caught all of the legends before discovering this, I tested it out with the event ones. Caught a Shiny Southern Island Latios with a few soft resets. Gonna restart my game sometime to find a decent ID and Secret ID number that can give me good shines along with decent IVs.

Hello there. I have just been wondering how to battle sudowoodo in pokemon emerald. When I talk to the tree (sudowoodo), all it does is shake around. Can someone tell me how to battle sudowoodo?

You need to use the Wailmer Pail on it (like in G/S/C, where you use the Squirtbottle instead). This is not really the place to ask, though...
