Hmmm... Should we actually seperate these into seperate games (one for Pokemon Ruby, one for Pokemon Sapphire, and one for Pokemon Emerald)? If we keep Pokemon R/S/E should it really be called Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald?

Should we create some sort of definitive naming convention that the moderators enforce? (Dragon Quest vs. Dragon Warrior, etc.)?--DukeRuckley 10:49, 21 July 2006 (CDT)

I was wondering about that when I worked on the Pokemon disambiguation page. I think it should be split, unless the differences between the games are miniscule (which I'm pretty sure they aren't, but I could be wrong). I've put down "write naming conventions" on my todo list. :-) --DrBob (Talk) 11:09, 21 July 2006 (CDT)
I agree about splitting the games up because of those differences. It does change the gameplay, even if it is only slight. As for other naming conventions, what about using Japanese names versus English, as in the case of Dragon Warrior and Dragon Quest? I think for that specific example there may actually be differences between the two versions, but in other cases that may not be the case. Should we just have one redirect to the other? The only question then is which one do we actually use for the walkthrough.--DukeRuckley 11:41, 21 July 2006 (CDT)

Ruby and Sapphire are only minimally different, the main change is in the storyline. As for Emerald's changes, Wikipedia summarises them nicely. I'd say Emerald could be separate but share 90% of its info (like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Master Quest does). GarrettTalk 15:55, 21 July 2006 (CDT)

Or, just add Emerald changes right into the guide. Same could be done for Crystal/Yellow versions since they are practically the same game, just a few storyline/monster changes. --Sekoku 15:02, 1 September 2006 (CDT)
The Emerald article should just be merged with this one. Then this current article would be renamed Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. It makes most sense because there are not very many differences between the games. 0-172 2:20, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

As a suggestion, wouldn't it be easier to have a "changes" page for emerald, and just have it use the parent tag for the agn? Technically Ruby and Sapphire were released together as essentially the "same" game, but emerald was released separately. -- Prod (Talk) 19:20, 5 February 2007 (CST)

Pokémon Emerald box[edit]

I noticed that the image in the infobox was a picture of the Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire boxes merged into one. Can someone with image merging skills also add the Pokémon Emerald box onto the image. I think theres one at Wikipedia. I'd do it myself but I always have trouble mergoing images Minun 11:19, 16 October 2006 (CDT)


I cant remember a few of the Elite 4 Pokemon! Som1 help --PokePikmin 10:27, 27 December 2006 (CST)

Thats all right, I'm a veteran to the game and own the guide to the game. I've been meaning to work on Ruby and Sapphire anyway. 0-172 17:13, 27 December 2006 (CST)

You don't need to have the guide to find these thing out, see here--Rocky Rally-X Rock.png (Talk - Contributions) 04:47, 5 April 2007 (CDT)
I know you don't need the guide to find stuff like that out, I was just stating that I had it. Lunar Knight (Talk to me + Contribs) 11:15, 5 April 2007 (CDT)

Emerald Encounters + question[edit]

I found one of my walkthroughs for Emerald. For the moment any basic facts I add right now are comming from the Pokémon Emerald Prima Official Game Guide. Since I don't want to swipe any copywrited stuff only facts like what is encountered where and prices are going to be taken from this. Once this info gets plugged in it will be time to double check the facts on a few other sources and finding the encounters for Ruby and Sappire as well. With encounter rates are we going to stick with percentages? I don't actually know where or how people get these. --Zaiqukaj 06:34, 3 December 2007 (CST)

Yea, I think its a good idea to stick with percentages, since the other guides (RBY and GSC) use percentages for the encounters, to keep it flowing. Halosonic 17:25, 3 December 2007 (CST)

Separation of route 104[edit]

Im thinking that if the story is to flow, route 104 should be separated into a north and south routes, with petalburg forest between them. i can just add the maps split, since i think North and South areas requires their own walkthroughs. Halosonic 17:19, 4 December 2007 (CST)

I have to agree this is needed. Having a north route 104 and a south route 104 sounds like a good solution to keep the guide looking like it's in chronological order. --Zaiqukaj 04:43, 6 December 2007 (CST)

Pokemon Encounter Rates[edit]

ok... i know for the first 2 generations for the pokemon frequencies they used percentages... im not too sure about the percentages for RSE, but for now, i think a good way to set it up would be...

  • Common
  • uncommon
  • rare
  • very rare

how about it? Peace out, God Bless. Halosonic 18:25, 20 December 2007 (CST)

I forgot to mention that this sounds like a good method. I'm going to change the percentages to these if I come across any though I'm not going to guess on anything for the other colors if I only have my emerald book on hand.
So would 10%, 30%, 30% = uncommon, common, common?--Zaiqukaj 02:47, 7 January 2008 (CST)

Well, dont change them to common, uncommon etc. just yet. they are only placeholders until i can get the percentages correct. i think bulbapedia has them, so i'll try to import them soon.

Peace out, God Bless, Happy New Year. Halosonic 16:32, 7 January 2008 (CST)

starter pokemon[edit]

I think it should be clarified which pokemon is best for beginners, for intermediate players, and for experienced players-- 00:33, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

There is already some info on the first page of the walkthrough (the point in the game where you get to choose). It says,
"Mudkip and Treecko are very well equipped to take out the first gym leader with ease, but Torchic will have difficulty in the first Gym battle unless it evolves. Remember that these starters are not found anywhere else in the game, which has very few Fire Pokémon but many Water and Grass Pokémon. Mudkip has a dual weakness to grass; this will make battling your rival tough (unless you teach Mudkip Ice Beam)."
Is this not accurate or detailed enough? It doesn't really matter which you choose, if you're not strong enough you will have to level up more or teach it new moves. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 16:54, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Fact Check, Please[edit]

While converting the Route 110 walkthrough page to use {{pokemon trainer}}, I noticed that the two Emerald-only Trainers "Pokéfan Isabel" and "Pokéfan Kaleb" smell very much like a 2-on-2 battle. Unfortunately, I cannot remember if they really are a 2-on-2, and I'd rather not accidentally introduce incorrect information. Could someone with Emerald please check?

I'm asking this because I'm wondering if I should convert those Trainers to a 2-on-2 {{pokemon trainer}} template, or keep them separate. If you have the answer, either ping me or be bold and fix it yourself. Thanks! Wjk (talk) 20:42, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

According to Bulbapedia, the double battle is a potential occurrence that is Emerald exclusive. Isabel appears in both versions. Kaleb is Emerald exclusive. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 18:16, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
