    Platinum, how is this even a contest? Platinum expanded the Pokedex, gave the mascot a new form, and ended the Galactic story arc with a completely new area, while Emerald didn't make any changes of that scale.

    Emerald for me. The RSE story arc was my favorite in the series, and obviously Emerald's slightly modified story makes the most sense since both Magma & Aqua are the baddies.

    Speaking of, those Magma Grunt costumes were amazing and I always wanted one!

    Both are fantastic games and among the best in the franchise. Platinum is marginally better, but that's because Diamond/Pearl had way more problems than Ruby/Sapphire ever did. Plus, Platinum piggybacks in features that were created in Emerald, so it isn't nowhere near as original. If anything, it vastly improves the Gym Leader rematch system, which was awful in Emerald, but it still uses the best of Emerald's features removed from the first pair to increase its appeal.

    If anything, the two things that makes me iffy about Emerald are Wallace being the Champion and no rematches with Steven. For the rest, it's almost as good, and much more original as it actually brought two of the best features Platinum would piggyback on later. Plus, Platinum had the grating idea of giving Barry even more screen time, and that was terribad.

    So yeah, both. They have about the same ups and downs.

    I personally prefer Emerald, although been a long time since I've played Emerald. I just really loved the Battle Frontier and thought the one in Platinum was meh.

    Emerald.
    I kind of felt like D/P/P fell flat for it's hype.
    + Emerald nostalgia factor.

    Tougher gym leaders/E4 > Platinum

    Better music > Emerald

    Better legendaries > Platinum

    Better villainous team> Platinum

    Better champion> Platinum

    Better region climate > Emerald

    Better regional mythology > Platinum

    Platinum outweighs Emerald for me so i'll vote Platinum.

    I'll say Platinum. For one, I've never played a hard copy of Ruby or Sapphire, so the whole "third version" thing wasn't really felt for me in that case; it was just Emerald.

    Diamond to Platinum though was awesome! I loved the little changes the made to the story, the region itself, and I was obsessed with Dawn's Platinum outfit for a while.

    Additionally, Platinum has the better Frontier in my opinion. Hoenn's always managed to piss me off, and I could only ever beat Lucy.

    This is like asking people to choose between their favorite children. So I naturally picked both. Emerald started things that would continue onto Platinum and Platinum started things that would go onto other games.
