Busy / Pokemon Emerald

Mike | Monday, March 26, 2007
Sorry it has been awhile since I've posted - I've kinda been busy with work and kind of neglected this blog. I think the professors met together and decided to throw a billion things at all of us at the same time just for the heck of it. That added with my procrastination = ouchie.

I just finished writing a research paper proposal for my American Lit class - who knows if I'll be able to write a 6+ paper on William Carlos Williams and the Imagist movement; I guess we'll have to see when the time comes up. Tomorrow I'll have to write a paper for my Understanding Human Cultures class on some article I should've gotten several weeks ago but consquently just got today - that should be fun. Sigh......work....


Okies, so this will probably be a short review. After I saw a friend playing the game, I decided to try out Pokemon Emerald for the GBA (played on the VisualBoyAdvance emulator). I have briefly played other Pokemon games, and I figured it would end up being all weird Japanese writing and just blah.

However, this game was better than I thought it would be. Sure, it may be a childish series,but meh to that, it was an enjoyable RPG to play through. Like the rest, you basically get to pick one of three pokeballs at the beginning as your starting pokemon. I ended up picking a Torchic (however you spell it; basically a fire pokemon), and this quickly became my most powerful pokemon. To your right you'll see i'll named it Torch and it evolved twice (I think the to level is Blaziken); it quickly becomes a fighter/fire pokemon, and a powerful one at that. Of course I leveled it a lot so it was normally taking on enemies at least half its level, but hey isn't that what an RPG is for, lol?
So basically in this game you follow the story and you'll need to defeat 8 gym leaders and collect their badges to move to the championship island and defeat the Elite Four and win the game basically. Pretty simple, but you'll need to catch Pokemon to do this, right?
I don't recall the exact number of pokemon if you want to fill your Pokedex (a directory of all the pokemon), but it'll take some time if you wish to fill your entire list. Catch em, train/level them, and there are some skills you'll receive throughout the game that'll help you get around, such as Surf (travel over the water) and Fly (fly to previously visited towns).
There's not much else to say, so I'll just tell you that ya "Gotta Catch 'em All!"
I gotta get to bed; nite blog.
