View Full Version : Times to beat E4?

February 26th, 2010, 1:45 PM
Just wondering, what's your fastest times beating the game up to the Elite 4 in 3rd Generation games?

For me, it's like this:

Emerald:16 hours.When all I had was a GBA and Emerald (Actually, i've only ever had one other GBA game that's not pokemon, and that was a Simpsons one), I used to play it over and over again.I once tried to get all my pokemon to lv.100, I had a Lv.100 Wailord,Swampert and Lanturn, and then i got beat by Sidney's Shiftry.

LeafGreen:100+ hours, because LeafGreen is a harder game.

Hmm... Emerald it is 50:28 (I think) and FireRed is 38:47!

Emerald 10:11
Leaf Green: 14:23
Sapphire: 8:01

February 27th, 2010, 3:13 AM
Ruby: 12:32
Emerald: 20hours and something
Leaf Green: Cant remember

Well, currently playing through Emerald. I'm transcribing it as a fanfiction at the same time, though, so I expect it to take me about 200 hours to get to the E4, if I don't get bored halfway through.

Lol, I'm trying to play through aswell, but boredom normally gets me too.

Emerald- 23:59, only ever got to Hall of Fame once
Leaf Green- 12 hours and something, got to Hall of Fame a lot and I know the game quite well.

fire red:20 hours. just because i enjoy playing that game

February 28th, 2010, 4:34 AM
Sapphire took me about 36 hours

February 28th, 2010, 5:32 AM
Emerald: 18 hours
Ruby: 23 hours
FireRed: 30 hours

FireRed was a much harder game. I started off with charmander and since I couldn't find any grass of water pokemon it was really hard to beat Brock at first.

leaf green took me 10 hours i think. i know that game inside out.
emerald took around 20 hours, or something like that, before the whole game crashed and i got so annoyed that i couldn't be bothered to start over again. sigh.

Pretty much for my Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald runs I beat them all around 8-9hours, its really easy compaired to the newest generations lol.

March 4th, 2010, 3:14 PM
Ruby: 7:18
Sapphire: 5:34
Emerald 13:10
FireRed: 17:13
LeafGreen: 14:21

Meh...not bad since I tend to speed through them with my starter and some HM slaves. Especially if it's like my 3rd or 4th time running through the game usually to reset for the Legends =)

I can't remember the exact times and I can't my games but I'm sure my Sapphire and Fire Red times were around 30-40 hours. I trained up my teams quite a bit before I challanged them.

March 6th, 2010, 7:22 AM
Oh yeah , I once tried speedruns , they were total fails . Sooo , here they are :

Sapphire : 32:12
FireRed : 82:25

In FR all I did was overleveling and talking to people . That's why it took longer . ^^

I did Leaf Green in about 11 or 12 hours, but I can't remember the rest of my times for the other versions.

Ok, let me paint you this picture:

I'm at the end of the Hoenn Elite 4 in Emerald. I've taken a massive beating, and the only Pokemon I have are a Wailord, a Tropius, and a Manectric. I think I'm home free with 2 Pokemon that are good on water right? Wrong.

I try to go through and defeat Wallace with his smug little Milotic, who knows every god #### move to kill my Pokemon. Here's a little transcript.

Tropius comes out to battle Milotic.

Tropius selects Magical Leaf.

Milotic blows Tropius to the wall with Ice Beam!

One hit KO!*

Manectric comes out!

Manectric uses Thunder!

One quarter of Milotic's HP goes down!

Milotic uses Surf!

Manectric Dies instantaneously, exploding of the pure Lameness of this moment!

I hated Wallace. I wanted to grab his Milotic and strangle it with it's own tail. It took me literally about 28 tries before I defeated him.
*Also does anybody else hate how the Pokedex says horrible news with an exclamation no matter what?
