Well I wanted to make this poll...Which of all GBA Pokemon game versions is the most editable?
Oh and please if you'd like, reply with why you chose the option you opted for.
I'm interested in knowing about this topic, plus it can clear other peoples minds in deciding which version is more convenient with what they want to do.
BTW... if anyone votes for Emerald, please describe why
To my knowledge, Emerald isn't as editable as FR or Ruby.

uhmm.. they're all the same, but Emerald is more unstable, and its not too many tools that work with it..
but Ruby/sapphire do all(almost) tools work, and it is very stable, witch means it wont crash as much as the other games.

Unstable? How? They are all using the same engine.

All of them are the most hackable....thats if you know what your doing.

I think a better poll would be, which GBA Rom has had the most editing tools created for it.

This is becasue more tools have been created for them as they are the most popular, though like I said all you need is a knowledge of what everything is located and how all the little engines work in it and Hex Workshops your friend.

I think pokemon sapphire is the easiest to hack. This is because it's easier to find the rom & the tools. I mean, i hacked mine so you can complete the pokedex & buy masterball & rare candies for free from the shop. lol

They're all the same. It just depends how lazy the hacker is.

As the(4) and Cartmic said, all are equally hackable, it is more of a question of preference. Cartmic already stated the question that should be posted, so I won't reiterate. All tools will work with Ruby, Sapphire, FireRed, and LeafGreen. Most tools will work with Emerald, but some won't because of the new and modified systems, such as animated Pokémon sprites (so PokéPic is out).

Well, I guess it all goes down into how lazy the hacker is lol
That is so true... They aren't completely different from each other, And all tools out there are coded to modify hex values anyway. I've made tools myself...
The tools just save you time, but they modify hex values and that editing you can do it all yourself in an hex editor but that would take more time and it'd probably drive nuts about 80% of rom hackers.

Well I think FireRed is a clear winner. XD

Also, all my tools support FireRed/LeafGreen/Emerald before I even think of doing Ruby/Sapphire. They just seem too old-school for me, you know? Anyway, I think you should hack FireRed.

Firered is the best for me,
It has more space to make maps and events...but In other roms except for LF it would be hard to do so....

Yeah, I think Fire Red is hackable, and stable. And also Ruby/Sapphire. But, I would say no to Emerald because it's too unstable.

It doesn't matter that much. Each and every ROM can be hacked, it just depends on the person if he or she wants to put more or less effort if there is no tool for doing a certain task (example: FireRed/LeafGreen world map change) and when they reach the desired effect, they should be proud of themselves that they managed to do that on their own (or with help of tutorial).

In my opinion, all ROMs are hackable, just, it's up to everyone to decide. (I like FR/LG for example.)


Cheers!

Ruby, by a large difference, regardless of the poll.
Although fire red has better grafics and its gay feature can be easily avoided (I'm talking abut the fame checker, as opposed to the bases in ruby)

I think Ruby/Sapphire is a highly hackable ROM, I've been hacking it for two years. It's pretty stable, too.

I chose Fire Red because its (DUH!) easier to hack because most of the programs work better with it. In Ruby, on Advance Mart, I'd get a hex # for each item. But with Fire Red, I have:
MASTER BALL
ULTRA BALL
GREAT BALL

so-on-and-so-forth...

Emerald is good for hacking...
It depends HOW you hack it.
If you start deleting all the sh*t it has, you'll have plenty of space for your stuff.
To hack Emerald right you need to remove a lot of data.
In my opinion... Hacking Ruby is like the n00bish choice lol
It's the easiest one to hack IMO (I'm talking about other stuff than just maps, tilesets and sprites)
FireRed's and Ruby's titlescreens are harder to hack, as compared to LeafGreens and Sapphires
And i'm talking about no tile-map editing here, just plain simple hacking the titlescreen.

I think the winner here is Ruby, but I take Ruby being the n00bish rom choice, and Emerald being the hardest, although it's equally as hackable as the rest if you know how to hack it properly

Omg are you freaking serious xD
Removing stuff from a Rom makes it even less stable, you obviously don't know what you're even talking about.

I never said that deleting data from the rom makes it more stable
I said it gives you plenty of space for your stuff by removing data.
And obviously, carefully look at what you remove.
Removing unused FireRed music frees you a good ammount of space, making the rom much lighter.
A friend of mine is hacking emerald... and in order to work well with the rom he has removed
music and maps, since he is re-inserting stuff of his own.
