Pokémon Emerald review
Hello all! Finally, I’m making a review for my favorite Pokemon game Emerald.
Well, where would I start with the game? Ah! I got it! Anyway, Pokemon Emerald is a game where you command Pokemon that you catch to battle other trainers and gym leaders. You travel town to town battling trainers that stand in your way and beat gym leaders and collect their badges. And in the game you always have a rival, either May or Brenden judging upon what gender you pick. And whether you like it or not, their Pokemon are always stronger then yours by “Super Effectiveness”. Which I’ll get into in a few moments. But anyway back to your rival, May/Brenden have a recommended level depending on the location your in. Like, lets just say your in the beginning and you met May/Brenden, their Pokemons level will be 3.
Now, let us talk about “Super Effective”. Now as your pokemon level up they get moves, and their moves may have elemental advantages. Heres a chart,
Rock type beats Flying type
Flying type beats Grass types
Grass type beats Water types
Water type beats Fire types
Steel type beats rock types
Grass/Water type beats Steel types
Dragon type beats Dragon types
Dragon type beats Dragon types
Physic type beats Physic/Ghost types
Ghost type beats Physic/Ghost types
Electric type beats Flying types
Normal type beats Electric types
Dark type beats Ghost/Physic types
Normal type beats Dark types
And so on, and so on. Of course there are “Un-effective” moves too like for example, Electric type is Un-effective to Rock types. And for a quick note I’m talking about Move types like “Thunder Bolt VS. Rock type Pokemon”. Yeah that’s what I was talking about.
Now, if you wish to know the Items for Emerald, Berries, or Misc. Status Effects click the following links. Status Items, Pokeballs, Regular Items, and Berries. Yes click on them if you want to know about them and look at detailed descriptions.
Another thing is “Gym Badges” yes I indeed mentioned them before but here are the names of them all.
First Gym Badge: Stone Badge after beating Gym Leader Roxanne.
Second Gym Badge: Knuckle Badge after beating Gym leader Brawly.
Third Gym Badge: Dynamo Badge after beating Gym Leader Wattson.
Forth Gym Badge: Heat Badge after beating Gym Leader Flannery.
Fifth Gym Badge: Balance Badge after beating Gym Leader Norman.
Sixth Gym Badge: Feather Badge after beating Gym Leader Winona.
Seventh Gym Badge: Mind Badge after beating Gym Leaders Tate & Liza.
Eighth Gym Badge: Rain Badge after beating Gym Leader Juan.
Now last thing are TM’s (Technical Machines) and HM’s (Hidden Machines). Now TM’s are items that automatically teach your pokemon a move type if they are the type to learn the move. For example, “This TM contains Protect, do you want to teach Protect to Absol?” And since hes a Dark-Normal type of Pokemon Absol can learn it. Of course if you would give a different TM to Absol well, look at this example too. “Absol cannot learn Water Gun”, Thats because hes not a Water type in anyway. Now lets talk about HM. Now HM are moves you can teach to your Pokemon but when you teach it to them it stays with them forever and cannot be erased when your Pokemon learns a new move. These HM’s help you through the game like, heres another example.. “Theres a rock in the way, do you want Geodude to use Rock Smash?” And there are others like Surf and Strength. But HM’s can prove to be useless in battle. They make it where you have to get rid of one of your non-HM moves. Plus like i said they prove useless in battle because they take really little damage out of Pokemon you encounter.
Well I hope you all enjoyed this long article because I will not make another one for 2 weeks.
