I wouldn't buy this guide if I was you because this guide has an awful lot of mistakes. For the people that would like to buy a Pokemon Game Guide, may I suggest that you buy the one from Nintendo Power because Pokemon games came from Nintendo Not Prima. For the people that bought the guide, I'll type the mistakes I found for you.#1: Pg.4: In the pokeball section, it says that you can get a master ball from both Hideouts but you can only get it from Team Aqua's Hideout.#2: Pg.23: In the section of Route 102 via Pokemon Appearances in Water, there's a Rare Surskit in the water but you can only get a Surskit in Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. (See Pokedex for this)#3: Pg.25: Do you see the room of Norman's Gym? Well, where it show's the second-left, they forget to draw a door and in the 4th two visted rooms, the right room should have been in the left instead of the right.#4: Pg.41: See that high road? There's a white spot on its road.#5: Pg.70: The Safari Zone. Why doesn't it show the full map of the new area after beating the Elite Four?#6: Pg.78: Why doesn't it show the map of Team Aqua's Hideout?#7: Pg.99: They say that Latias/Latios are encountered randomly on the grass but they can sometimes be encountered by surfing.#8: Pg.104: It shows that Steven has A Matagross that's Lv58 but it's at Lv78.#9: Pg.107: See two images of the Battle Factory? The right image is incorrect.#10: Pg.178: The Pokemon Corpish, it's says that you can catch one in Petalburg City but Corpish isn't in that city.#11: Pg.236: It says that you can get a master ball in Team Magma's Hideout but The master ball is at Team Aqua's Hideout.
Overall it was an ok guide; but the gym leader, elite 4, and pokedex was a little lacking. I also wanted to know about the jhoto and kanto pokes. I mean, if you get a national pokedex you want to know about alllllllll the pokemon not just the new ones.
Covers Pokemon Emerald, which is significantly improved over the original Ruby and Sapphire games. I was also using this for a period of time for playing ORAS, and it is pretty similar but the ORAS guide maps & guide suits that need better, but Emerald guide was inexpensive at my time of purchase. Basically I tracked down legit carts for Emerald (which was a time consuming task authenticating), so I got the guide after with plans for more future use. I've skimmed it and used it briefly, looks like a decent guide.
This guide is pretty good but has some errors.For Example:It says the gym leader Brawly is a Flying Type Trainer,and says to use fighting or psychic type moves against him-This is wrong-Brawly is a Fighting type trainer,and can be beated by Flying or psychic type moves.Overall this book is pretty helpful,it has item locations,tm moves and hm move locations.But it also lacks all 386 pokemon.It lists only 202 out of the 386 pokemon.
Let me just say that I loved Prima's Ruby and Sapphire guide but this guide is such a let down I can't believe I wasted my money on it. Most if not all of the maps are from Ruby and Sapphire (I compared). It doesn't give you much information either. Everything is crammed together and the things that you have to go back and do later blend into everything else so you forget to go do something after you've completed a certain task. This guide didn't help me at all. The extra information you buy guides for just wasn't there and I honestly could have just used my Ruby and Sapphire guide and it would have helped me MORE. Buy at your own risk or if you're not that interested in the game and don't care about quality.
I think the Pokemon Emerald Game Guide is the best game guide to hit the shops.It has everything you need to know about Pokemon Emerald.From what level they evolve to where to catch them.Being an owner of Pokemon Emerald myself,I think it is great for people that have never played a Pokemon game before. You Rock!
I remember the days when Prima guides for Pokemon were amazing. Nowadays they've gotten amazingly lazy.For starters, none of the trainers are listed or what pokemon they have, so it's hard to know if someone on the map is a trainer or just a person with advice.Secondly, most of the maps are from Ruby/Sapphire!!! I can tell because I compared them with my Ruby/Sapphire guide, and they are exactly the same on most routes. Most routes in emerald, though, have some stuff changed, mainly small graphical details, but in many routes there are lots of new trainers, which the map doesn't even show!!!The guide is also laid out very poorly, as whenever you need to revisit an area, it's not in the next page of the guide, but rather you have to flip back to the section where you first visited the area and look around for the section that talks about what you need to do. This makes it very easy to miss parts of the game that aren't required to actually beat the elite four, and I know I've missed a few things.My advice: get the Nintendo Power guide or just use the online IGN guide if you need a good walkthrough.
I love this book, it gives me all of the details on all of the pokemon I need to gather in this version. It even makes it more fun to trade Pokemon, because my friends and I check out the details of our Pokemon. I recommend this book if you love Pokemon!
