Default Re: READ FIRST: What's New in Emerald Version

Getting a G/S/C Starter

Once you fill your pokédex (just 1-200), go to Professor Birch, and you'll get to choose ONE of the following:

-Cyndaquil
-Totodile
-Chikorita

--------------------

The New Effects of Abilities

Some abilities have added effects in Emerald Version:

Compoundeyes: Increases the chance that wild pokémon will hold an item

Cute Charm: Increases the chance of wild pokémon's gender being opposite of the gender of the pokémon on your team with this ability

Hustle / Vital Spirit: Lowers the chance of encountering high-level wild pokémon

Hyper Cutter: Increases cutting range when using Cut out of battle

Intimidate / Keen Eye: Lowers the chance of encountering low level wild pokémon

Magma Armor / Flame Body: halves the number of step necessary to hatch an egg.

Magnet Pull: Incrases the chance of encountering wild steel pokémon

Pressure / Arena Trap: Increases the chance of encountering wild pokémon

Lightningrod: Increases the number of calls in the Entry Call (I'll explain the Entry Call later on)

Sand Veil: Lowers the chance of encountering wild pokémon while in areas where there's a sandstorm

Static: Incrases the chance of encountering wild electric pokémon

Suction Cups / Sticky Hold: When fishing, makes pokémon easier to catch

Swarm: Increases the frequency of hearing the roars of wild pokémon in the area in the background music

Synchronize: Increases the chance of wild pokémon's nature matching the nature of the pokémon on your team with this ability

White Smoke: Lowers the chance of encountering wild pokémon

--------------------

Pichu / Pikachu / Raichu can use Volt Tackle

If either parent is holding a Light Ball, and the child will be a Pichu, than the Pichu will know Volt Tackle when it's born.

--------------------

Entry Call

The Pokénav function "Trainer's Eyes" has been replaced with "Entry Call". This acts as a cell phone that you can use to call up trainers and gym leaders to get their info, and they sometimes ask for rematches (even gym leaders!). Gym Leaders are stronger each time you fight them, which you can do up to six times.
