Let's do this. State how many times you've finished every 3rd Gen game. Of course, with adding personal comments.
By "finished", I mean beat the Elite Four clean without cheats (please don't lie! :P ).

Here's mine:

Ruby : 2
Sapphire : 7
Emerald : 3
FireRed : 2
LeafGreen : 5

I personally played LeafGreen and Sapphire a lot. I got Ruby first, but I thought of trying Sapphire out, and kept playing and playing it. I didn't get FireRed until later. Same goes for Emerald.

Let's do this! It's a mini-game, of sorts, like "1000 Reasons Why", of course.

I'll have to dig deep into my memory for this one...

Sapphire: 2
Ruby: 1
Emerald: 7
FireRed: 4
LeafGreen: 2

These numbers are fairly accurate, give or take a couple finishes. I know for sure that I've completed Emerald more than any of the other ones.

This is hard to remember but lets try.

Sapphire: Once. I didn't get any Ruby or Sapphire when they first came out cause I couldn't afford a GBA until 2005. I finally bought a copy of Sapphire with Christmas money in 2011 and have only played it one time so far.
Ruby: None cause I don't own it.
Emerald: At least 5. I had two copies cause I lost the first one.
FireRed: 2 times I got it after losing my copy of LeafGreen and didn't touch it as much.
LeafGreen: About 5-7. I played it a lot before getting Emerald and then losing my copy.

As a 3rd generation fanboy, I'll add my numbers to this =D

Sapphire- Once. I had Ruby growing up and my brother had Sapphire, so I never really had a chance to play this, but we decided to trade the games once and do a playthrough of each others versions.

Ruby- Around 10 times. I loved my Ruby version and I really wish I still had it. This was my first gen 3 game and I will never forget it.

Emerald- This is my favorite game of all time and I have played it at leas 30 times. This is a game that I can never grow tired of!

Firered and Leafgreen- Listing these together because I have played them around 10 times each. I loved these games and I don't think I could grow tired of them either =D

I need to finish Emerald soon... I don't have Sapphire and I gave away Ruby for whatever godforsaken reason, maybe because I though I didn't need it with me having Emerald. I'll probably get Firered soon.

I've owned only Ruby, Emerald and FireRed. I've completed the latter 2 once, but Ruby twice, reason being I accidently deleted my save file! haha ...
The tally for the other games and the ones listed will go up 1 soon though, I've bought all the Gen III games recently and plan to finish them once more!

That's cute.

I'd love to tell you how many times I've played each gen III game, but I honestly have lost count. The best I can give you are some crappy estimates. RSE is at least 50. FRLG is probably 20, though none of those are recent. I know right? I used to actually REALLY like those games!

My jaw drops.
It's so easy to restart the game, right?

I mean, we can all feel refreshed by taking other Pokémon to accompany you through your journey.

I've never played either LeafGreen or Ruby, so I can't add those to my list, but I have beaten Emerald once, FireRed twice and Sapphire three times. I just really don't like restarting my games, and since I rarely play on emulators, I don't expect my totals to get much higher than this, either.

I've played through Pokémon Ruby a lot of times. I can't exactly tell you how many, though, because I haven't really kept track of the count. xD I've played through Pokémon Emerald three times, though, that's for sure! My cousin and I were having a race to see how many times we could finish the game, and she ended up winning. I grew a bit tired of Emerald after my second run.
for all distractions.

Sapphire: Don't own yet
Emerald 1 I still have not done every little thing in it, and would love to replay it but could never wipe my save. If I got a new copy, I'd jump right in. I could never run out of teams with Hoenn Pokemon
Firered: 1. I have two Firered carts, currently going for the last two badges in my second copy. I still have to play Leafgreen but already getting a tad bit tired of Kanto Atleast with Leafgreen, I'll be using my favorites that did not get a chance in FR.

I only redid LG and FR because I lost my carts and had to get new ones. Emerald I generally enjoyed so much that I played it three times through.

The only actual generation 3 game I've played to completion is Emerald, and I've done that about 5 times. I find emerald the one pokemon game I keep coming back to thanks to the inventive region, fluid gameplay and good art style and pokemon.

Leaf Green: 2 [ Don't feel like replaying, caught a shiny.. ]
Emerald: 1 [ I reset my game about 6 months ago, currently at Elite Four. ]

I don't see the point in buying the other games if they're basically the same.
