Since I don't have a way to hack Emerald, the only ways I can get Weedle at the start of the game are by trading one, or using an emulator (I would very much like to avoid using an emulator for this, I play the game a lot away from home). But, if I trade I have to use an egg since I don't want it to gain traded experience. I think I have a way to trade between games that will bypass the trade restrictions.

Does this idea work:

Get the National Pokedex on LeafGreen.
Acquire the Ruby and the Sapphire on LeafGreen, to unlock the Network Machine.
Breed to make a Weedle egg on LeafGreen.
Trade the egg to a Colosseum file where the player has defeated Evice.
From there, trade the egg to a brand-new file on Emerald.
Pokémon eggs cannot be traded to Pokémon Colosseum. I suggest getting Pokémon Box, transferring the egg from LeafGreen, then transferring it to Emerald from there.
