    Default Sapphire Vs. Emerald?

    Me and a group of my friends are playing competitively and we're about to move on to the next game. My question is: should I get sapphire or emerald. Please explain pros and cons to justify.
    So far i see that the pickup ability suits me better on sapphire (rare candy is 10% as is nugget which helps training after i have ev trained) but emerald seems to have lots of advantages. Help?

    Edit: No ubers are allowed and onlt one legendary is allowed in battle, if this changes anything

    More pokemon sounds good. I also like the berrie/block things that reduce evs. It seems helpful because your starter gets screwed on evs at the begining

    yeah, but those berries are rare. It's easier to get a ditto, and breed a new starter with a good nature.

    They're both the same game except Emerald has about 50 more pokemon you can catch and moving sprites.

    Unless one of your favorite pokemon is an Sapphire exclusive (see http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Version-exclusive_Pok%C3%A9mon#Hoenn) you'll prefer Emerald.

    Emerald is the Third Version of the Hoenn games, so it's going to have more content then either Ruby or Saphire, such as the Battle Frontier. The only "con" I could think of for Emerald would be if it didn't have a Version Exclusive Pokemon that you really want.

    Emerald. Really, there is no reason not to get it.

    Emerald was my introduction to Generation III, and I highly recommend it. Not only can you get nearly all of the generation's legendaries in one game, but the storyline is more engaging than any previous game, and the Battle Frontier is probably the best post-game scenario ever. Plus, Emerald also plays home to almost all of the Johto Pokémon you normally would have to trade over from Colosseum (you can find 'em in the Safari Zone after you beat the Elite Four).

    Emerald. Unless you want Jirachi from the colo bonus disc, or have certian pokemon in sapphire you badly want, get emerald.

    Definitely Emerald. There's more to do after the end credits (Battle Frontier). You also get to take on Teams Magma and Aqua at the same time.

    Emerald. Third version is always better.
