Ever felt the Elite Four were a little too easy to beat?

NOT ANYMORE!

In this Emerald hack the only thing that's been changed is the Elite Four/Final Rival battle:

- They now mostly use Ubers/Legenadaries (including Rayquaza, Mew, Lugia etc) and a few very good OUs (Salamance, Metagross etc) and have been assigned a variety of deadly move sets.

- They are ALL at level 100.

Here's a preview of what you'll be up against:







Here's how to play:

Step 1) Using VBA and an Emerald Rom open the attached IPS file.

Step 2) Instead of starting a new game; just click "import" and import your own ".sav" file that you should have assuming that you've completed Pokemon Emerald (and used the export feature on VBA to make your own ".sav" file). Once this is done you can vs the Elite Four with your own Pokemon team from your own Emerald game.

I've checked for compatibility for SAV files from both original and hacked Emerald roms and they all work fine. (If you've never played through the original or hacked Emerald msg me for a .sav file)

Step 3) See if you can beat the elite 4 and their insanely powerful Pokemon.

Rules for this challenge:
You cannot use Ubers on your team at all.
Your only allowed to use 1 legendary Pokemon on your team.
No items are to be used in battle (but they can be used after battle).
You can give your Pokemon an item to hold (excluding choiceband).
No cheap moves like those that are tournament banned (eg: one hit KOs).
You can only use a sleep inducing move up to 3 times per battle.

The winner of this challenge is the poke-trainer who can win using the lowest level team.

Currently I'm the only person to have completed this challenge. I used a level 65 team. If you like a challenge, give it a try!

Enjoy and feel free too leave feedback.

That sounds insanely hard, but I don't think I want to play it, since I've already played through Pokémon Emerald Hard Edition, and want a break from Emerald.
I may try sometime though.

Yeah, it is pretty hard! I usually sweep through the Elite Four in any hack using an under leveled team...but this certainly took some time and strategy.

but I had a lot of fun completing this challenge and am happy to share the experience (by uploading this hack) with anyone who's interested.

I think that people thought it was too hard. I know that I personally wouldn't be able to beat it, so that's my reasoning.

ok that elite 4 is a bit to hard and if you are going to make them all lv100 oponents at least but a good amount of trainers to battle before hand to make your pokemon strong anoth to combat lv100 legendaries....

Yeah, that's the point. It is damn hard!

I can undersand if a lot of players don't really want to try because their just casual players (which is cool) but this is really for the more hardcore poke-trainer who enjoys an epic challenge.

but if I can win with a level 65 team (no hacks) so can anyone else... that is if you have the skill and technique.

Skill in a 4-move turn based RPG? No such thing.

Technique? Probably, but the AI on GBA is so terrible rofl.

Do competitive tournaments for pokemon require skill? that's also a 4-move turn based game.

If skill was not a part of the game then there would only be luck.
There certainly wouldn't be people complaining about the difficulty either. :/
