    Default [Gen3] Generation 3 - Which game is the best?

    Hello there! I am thinking of buying a Gen3 Pokemon game for the GameBoy Advance(classic)/Micro I will be buying (didn't decide which one yet :/). I love the Gen3 Hoenn games but I don't know which one to buy and why. Could anyone just list me up something why I should buy emerald and not ruby or something like this. Also I would like to know if the berry glitch is a problem in ruby, and where to buy NEW versions of 3gen games - i searched almost the complete internet and can't seem to find em (a eu shop would be best)
    Thank you for your time ^_^

    Emerald has more features than Ruby/Sapphire, so it's a better purchase than either of it's counterparts. You'll want to get either a GameBoy Advance SP or GameBoy Micro, being as the GameBoy Advance doesn't have a backlit screen. Also worth mentioning is that the GameBoy Micro can't play GameBoy or GameBoy Color games, while the GameBoy Advance SP can. Unless you own a Gamecube, because then you should also consider the GameBoy Player as an option (which can play GameBoy, GameBoy Color and GameBoy Advance games).

    I wish I could be of help as far as purchasing the game goes, but I live in the States.

    Amazon would be a good website to purchase from, if you can find a reliable, trustworthy seller (or if Amazon itself has it available). And, no problem at all!! (:

    The Battle Fronteir is a mixture of like 6 different places to battle, each one with there twists to it. The Battle Tower is just a place where you can battle, but you can't earn Exp. or Money, instead you earn BP, to spend on different prizes after 7 battles. The same thing happens in the Battle Fronteir. The Battle Tower is in the Battle Fronteir though, so just get Emerald.

    I guess you could look in Cregs List or Ebay for the game.
    If your going to get it on a site like Ebay, here's a tip: Place your bid at the last second.

    Yeah, I've come across this problem myself. Your best bet is to settle with a used game... since the games are no longer made then people can charge whatever they want for them and you can't go elsewhere. Not to mention that they are getting rarer and rarer each time someone buys one and opens it. Even used copies are hard to come by, at least around here. I've found that they are the most expensive of all the used GBA games... going for like $20 - $30 each (and sometimes their used price is even higher now than it would have been if the game was new back when it was still in stores).

    Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald are all good. But I would suggest Emerald - there's a Battle Frontier. There's no berry glitch so time-based events happen.

    Like others said, Emerald, because it has more features.

    But DON'T get a Gameboy Micro. IMO, that thing is the worst Nintendo console ever. I know it's supposed to be small, but I thought it was too small, and the volume sucks. I can barely hear it well, and my ears are friggin sensitive. I find it annoying to hold because of its small size too, and I have small hands!

    I'm sure it's bad. Not everyone will have the same opinion, you know. xP
