    Well I think it would be emerald because of all the editions but emerald was also easy to beat with wallace as the champ.

        I would pick Emerald for the better plot, extra new old Pokemon to catch in the Safari Zone, and the Battle Frontier.

          Well I would think most would say emerald because all the additions it has plus all three legendaries. If anyone wants to see my playthrough of sapphire though click the link it would be much appreciated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSGitHVZ36A

            Emerald, as you could obtain all three mascots (Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza), Battle Frontier, rematch Gym Leaders, neater outfit designs for the playable characters, both Team Aqua and Team Magma involvement, and rebattling Steven in Meteor Falls.

            One thing I disliked is the removal of Pokemon Contests for Battle Tents. Only one remains in Lilycove City.

              It has all the stuff that R/S has and more! But I would agree with Skylands, however it does make it less of a hassle to travel all over for Contests. Basically Skylands summed up my opinion xD

                I've "played" all three, but only owned Sapphire and Emerald.

                I must say I've enjoyed playing all three but Emerald just had more in it.

                  Pokemon Ruby.

                  It was the first one I played, and I liked the fact that it lacked the avalanche of double battles from emerald.

                    Pokemon Ruby I didn't really like Emerald all that much.

                      ofc Emerald,
                      That's the third game I played.
                      that dates back to my past.

                        Even though i played Ruby more i'd have to say Emerald because of a better story and added features.

                          Emerald for its awesome cut scenes, Battle Frontier and the ability to catch Kyrogre, Groundon and Rayquaza all in one game.

                            Emerald for me as it's the only one I had haha but if I had to pick between the other two it'd probably be Sapphire as it's my birthstone haha plus I prefer Team Magma, so I'd want to take on Aqua in game lol :D

                              I like emerald best. It's got more content that either ruby or sapphire, what with the battle frontier and extra safari zone and such. I can't really see why people would prefer either ruby or sapphire over it.

                              I'm gonna go with the majority opinion here and say that my favourite of the trio was Pokemon Emerald. Emerald improved upon Ruby and Sapphire in every way and added some new features, too.

                              Emerald. It improved a lot of things, like introducing the battle frontier and improving on other aspects.

                                None of the above, generation 3 was a definite slump.

                                  Emerald, like someone else said, they took what was good in RS and made it that little bit better.

                                    I do love Emerald, but I prefer Sapphire as it is the only one out of Ruby and Sapphire I've played and they make contests more like the anime.

                                      Ruby because it was the one my friend bought for me after I just got a GBA. I like emerald but I have more of a sentimental feeling towards my beautiful red cartridge with Groudon. I need to go back and buy those to play outside of my ROM ones on my phone.

                                        Its getting redundant, but Emerald was amazing. It greatly improved upon R/S's flaws and added the BF. The general opinion, but a good opinion at that.

                                          Considering that Emerald has everything Ruby/Sapphire has and more (tougher battles, being able to fight both aqua and magma, and of course the battle frontier) it's definitely the best one of the three.

                                            Emerald for sure, I played all three and i loved having to go through the two different bases, not to mention the countless hours in the battle frontier. Also the breeding mechanics specifically the everstone for natures was a nice change too.

                                            Tied between Sapphire and Emerald, but I went with Emerald simply because it has more features over Sapphire, like the Battle Frontier.

                                              Sapphire all the way. Team Aqua was better than Team Magma, Kyogre was better than Groudon, Steven was still champion not that ridiculous Wallace guy, and it was my first game, so there's that too.

                                              But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
                                              So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.
