Still have Emerald - had to get the internal battery repaired recently, well worth it as it's possibly my favourite game of all time, just edging out HeartGold. Also have a used copy of LeafGreen which I purchased around the same time Platinum came out - unlike my used Black 2 copy it doesn't have anything wrong with it so I've found a lot of replay value.

Kinda wish I still had my GBA which I only sold for about £20 when I was younger - I believe in order to buy Platinum as I couldn't get a job and my parents stopped doing pocket money, as they're now selling for so much more on Amazon.

I do! I have all my original copies, two of Emerald actually. Also two Sapphire, but one is in French. I have the box and manual for Emerald, FireRed, and the French Sapphire as well. Wonder what Syd's favorite generation is HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.

      I own all of the Gen 3 games: Fire Red, Leaf Green, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Colosseum, and XD, all with the original boxes and manuals. My R/S/E cartridges all have dead internal batteries, and I haven't gotten around to replacing them yet.

      I didn't know you were supposed to keep them...
      I sold all my pokemon games years ago to some twin girls, down the street. ;__;

        I still have all my generation III Pokémon cartridges, or at least cartridges of all the main handheld games in generation III... I can't really recall which ones, if any, are the first cartridge I owned of that game. I can say with, like, 95% certainty that my copy of Ruby is a later replacement cartridge, and I'm fairly sure the FireRed cartridge I currently own is the first one I got.
        I also own Sapphire, Emerald, and LeafGreen, although my memory of how specifically I obtained those cartridges is a bit fuzzier. I know I still have all of them somewhere, though.

        I believe I also still own Pokémon Colosseum, along with its bonus disc. Those are the only ones I know for a fact I still own my physical copies of, though.

        I'm pretty sure I still have Emerald laying around somewhere around here. Sadly I cannot find my Sapphire to save my life D:

          I've still got my Emerald with a 7 year old save file. There's also my FireRed, which I restarted sometime last year. As for my first ever game, Ruby, I think I lost it.

            I don't believe I have them anymore, unless I somehow find them hidden away in a storage compartment in my house somewhere!

              I only bought Sapphire and Firered and both still work. I wasn't a big fan of either so didn't get very far in them.

                  We still have that sapphire cartridge which my sister has lend me
                  whilst I still was infant. My save isn't there anymore, since she had
                  decided to re-play it. However, I do still have my first catch*TRIGGERED*,
                  a shiny poochyena that my sister helped me capture. Back in sapphire
                  we weren't used to poochyena so we stored him, I would've put him in
                  the daycare in order to see the shiny evolution and get the dex entry.
                  Back when I had my first DS(a lite variant DS) I managed to get him
                  on my diamond game and he's still there.

                  One thing I regret : I wish I had changed his nickname before the migration.

                  Thnking about it, the only 2 legitimate shinies I remember catching were on
                  sapphire, the shiny poochyena being my first catch and a shiny wingull
                  being the last one. Did I predict the remakes' titles without knowing?
                  Also, my first starter, torchic, had the nickname Victor, and blaziken's
                  crest has a V...
                  Ready thyselves for trouble, guess who's back?

                    Leaf Green. The same copy I was given when I was about 5. Sadly it's old and now has a problem with freezing.. so it would get in the way of playing through it

                    Had Ruby for a long time as well, but my dog went through a chewing faze and I found it half eaten.

                      I know the location of my copy of Sapphire and emerald. I also know where my brother's copy of Ruby and Emerald is as well. I just got to find my copy of FireRed and my brother's copy of LeafGreen.

                      I have FR, LG, R, & S but never got E.

                      I originally didn't like Gen 3 but it's definitely grown on me. Pokemon ages like a fine wine ya know? xD

                          Between my brother and I, we have all the main series games of the third gen. I personally have Sapphire, Emerald, and FireRed. Never restarted FR, so I still have my Shelly, Mika, and Eva from all the way back in 2004. The memories~

                            I once had a Sapphire cart, but I think it got lost or sold at some point. I do still have my Emerald and LeafGreen cartridges, though.

                              I have Emerald but it keeps deleting my save file when I start the game. I had fun playing it when it still worked.

                                I still have Emerald and LeafGreen. Both savefiles were deleted, so maybe Ill get around to playing them again, next year probably.

                                    All of them except LeafGreen, still! I'm starting new files on most of them. Torn currently between playing Ruby (because of Mawile and Solrock) or Sapphire (because of Seviper and because it was the one I played first). All are in excellent working condition besides the berry glitch or a dead battery, so time-based events don't happen.
