When doing a Nuzlocke randomizer one of the starters were Rayquaza. Of course I re-randomized the game. Didn't want it to be too easy

In Pokémon Ruby, my favorite moment was when I finally caught Groudon. I used to spend hours trying to catch this Pokémon, but it kept breaking free of the PokéBall. It used to drive me insane. xD In Emerald, my favorite moment is scene that features Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza. Every time I watch it, I get goosebumps.

I like all of your ideas but I forgot to state mine! (Oops :3)

At the beginning when you choose your pokemon I chose.... Hold on a minuet as I go on a little rant.

When the story reached the climax and Rayquaza came down and stopped the fight between Groudon and Kyogre. I love that scene so much. Rayquaza is such a badass

I very much enjoyed the cut scene in Emerald with the three mascot legendaries. I think that was the first cut scene in any mainstream Pokemon game.

But I actually really enjoy traveling around the area of Hoenn where the rain/drought is happening before I go to Sootopolis City to resolve the problem. I always thought that was neat. I remember being blown away by overworld weather effects anyway, as well as being able to see my reflection and the sky in the water and stuff.

For me, it was encountering my first Milotic, my favorite, forever and always.

I didn't look up any information of the pokemon before the game, everything was a complete surprise.

Then, I just had to have one!! And, my first Milotic hunt was so frustrating, exciting, among other things, but I was diligent. Then, by the waterfall I found a Feebas! I didn't know what they looked like. I was just so intrigued that such a perfect and beautiful pokemon would undergo such a transformation. But, I found out that I wasn't done. I had to collect them blue beauty berries, churn them with some old lady to make a pokeblock, feed them to my feebas, and max its beauty. By this time, I encountered my second most memorable feature of RSE, the competitions. I just remember how this new feature was just so amazing! (Unlike D/P competitions!)

Finally, I had one of these of my very own! Ahh, if only I could have some restrain with X and Y. :p

Finding Feebas after couple of tiles. I was ecstatic when I saw that Feebas moving across the screen. After that I caught a box full of Feebas.

For me, its battling Steven Stone at Meteor Falls. When I challenge him, I get the same feeling as battling Red in Mt.Silver.

I knew I wanted to use my Master ball on Rayquaza so I wasn't so worried. Too bad it took me 19472 tries to get to him. Getting up there and catching him was my favorite.

Finishing the Mach Bike maze in Sky Pillar (did I get that right) was the crowning moment of awesome for me. I was younger then and catching Rayquaza on top of the pillar made me cry xD

Sotopolis City in the middle of Kyogre-Groudon fight. Storm, rain, wind, people watching the fight, rain in the whole area in general, me fishing between the legendaries like nothing's happening.

Some other moments are discovering the Foretree city, first diving, finding the submarine, aqua-lava team fight with Poochyenas...etc. xD

Ehh, hard to think of a specific moment right at the top of my head, but I generally loved the entire game, juuusstt apart from the fact that about 1/4th of the game took place on water >:[ I guess some of my favourite moments would probably be beating the E4 for the first time and finally capturing the Regis. Reason beating the E4 is special, is pretty much because it's one of the hardest E4's imo. I don't know if I've just been super lazy each time I played through the games when it comes to balancing my team and their levels, but I've generally found R/S/E to be some of the hardest games in the main games series, and with the Victory Road and the E4 just shining up there at the top. My Pokemon were almost always heavily underleveled and super weak, and the only reason I beat the E4 in my most recent playthrough, was because I did a cop-out and just used Kyogre instead of my Ludicolo. But in my very first playthrough, I spent so long trying to get through it. I honestly think I just gave up at one point and started over, but I don't quite remember. I just remember the happiness I felt when I finally claimed my victory against Steven and his gosh darn Metagross ;D And one of my more memorable moments actually came right after that, but I wouldn't really refer to it as a "good" moment.

Immediately after beating the E4, I went straight ahead to catching Rayquaza. On the way to the Sky Pillar however, I encountered Latios. Only problem was, I didn't actually know it was a legendary, so I just ran away. I don't know why it didn't even occur to me, that it wasn't a Pokemon I ever had seen before, and the fact that it looked legendary should've at least meant something to me. But no, I was too set on catching Rayquaza, I didn't even think about it :p

As for my other greatest moment in the game, it was probably finally figuring out the braille, and meeting the requirements to go through them, and finally catching the regis. I mean seriously Game Freak, nobody reads the game manuals, why would you include the decryption codes in it, especially if you're targeting the games at kids who are likely to throw those away :( Or was that just me? Either way, it wasn't until one of my friends found the braille codes in the manual (I'm pretty sure it was in there? It's been years) that I finally managed to get myself some Regis. Right after I got my mom to translate the English for me ;D

Like Olli, I can't think of a favorite moment to tell you the truth. I guess encountering Castform for the first time as a gift is probably it because of how much I love that Pokemon, but really the entire game was magnificent and it is too hard to single out one part that was better than another. These games will never be topped because they are absolutely flawless.

Beating Steven for the first time in Sapphire. He was hard, but it was totally worth beating him in the end.

Rayquaza's descending to stop the fight.

I wish they have a remake of RSE so we can see it in 3D!

The moment when Rayquaza comes down from the sky, to calm down Kyogre and Groudon. That looked insanely awesome, and I always love seeing it :D

This! Although not on the third try, I loved catching Rayquaza with a Pokéball. I also liked the Battle Frontier in its entirety. It's the best one imo

Like what AlienhunterX said, I thought the part when Rayquaza appeared as Kyogre and Groudon fought was freaking awesome.
