Pokemon Expert Emerald (Ver. 1.42) Game Description

This is a Difficulty Mod and a 386 Fusion created by Suicune™. It offers a wide range of new fun features expanding on the original Emerald gameplay. You are able to capture and register all 386 Pokemon available in the game through various different methods such as evolution, events and normal catching procedures.


- The 386: Obviously since this is a "386 hack" by some names, you will be able to capture and register each individual Pokemon through some method, whether it's via capturing, events or evolutions; all Pokemon are obtainable!

- Difficulty: Since this hack is intended to be challenging, the whole difficulty dynamic has been increased with a steep level curve throughout the game. All boss battles including Gym Leaders, Elite Four members, Rivals and so forth have been edited to be much more of a threat, using a strong AI coupled with tactical movesets, these battles are much more of a challenge which will require you to train your Pokemon and stock up on items! The same applies to all other regular trainers throughout the game who will use specific items which will go against your favor!

- Sprites: Those old Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald sprites are far outdated by the current standard in Black and White, which is why this hack individually replaces almost every existing sprite in-game with the more modern and fresh sprites that are found in the later games. This gives the game a less dated feel and makes the gameplay a little more enjoyable!

- Evolutionary Changes: Several evolutionary methods are changed which make it much easier to evolve specific Pokemon that were inaccessible. Some methods such as happiness have been replaced with a simple level evolution or an evolution that is triggered by using a specific elemental stone.

- Abilities: Some Pokemon have had their Abilities tweaked or completely changed. For example, you can now have a Magneton that will have Levitate as it's ability!

- Attack Power & Type Changes: There have been a number of attacks that have been changed in terms of Power, PP and/or Accuracy, this applies mainly to those attacks with poor power or accuracy, for example GrassWhistle which originally had an Accuracy of 55 now has an Accuracy of 100. There have also been several type changes to specific Pokemon that would benefit their stats or attacks, for example Charizard is now Fire/Dragon and can learn several Dragon type moves.

- Event Pokemon: Those one-off Pokemon including Starters, Legendaries, etc., have all been implemented as events scattered around Hoenn. You can battle and capture all of these but be careful, you only get once chance!

- Miscellaneous Changes: There have also been changes to Genders, Movesets, Stats and more.

Pokemon Expert Emerald (Ver. 1.42) Review by: OrdannonsX - 9/10

My favourite Pokémon hack. Gotta catch 'em all!

I’m a sucker for the Pokémon series. Some time ago, I noticed a ROMhack of Pokémon Emerald in the Retro Game Room. It’s called Pokémon Expert Emerald, made by Season. Supposedly, it was much more challenging than the regular game. I chuckled a little, and arrogantly thought to myself: “How could a Pokémon game be difficult in any way? Surely, a Pokémon game could never be ‘difficult’, no matter what you change about it?” Oh, how little I knew…

The Graphics:

Nothing changed about the game’s overworld, and the trainer’s sprites have stayed the same from the original Pokémon Emerald. What’s impressive, though, is that Season replaced nearly all of the third-generation Pokémon sprites with the sprites seen in Pokémon Black and White for the Nintendo DS, because the sprites from Ruby/Sapphire are sooo 2003. Personally, I’m not a big fan of most of these sprites. They are designed to be in motion for them to look pretty. But seeing as it is impossible to make the sprites constantly moving on GBA hardware, it would’ve been better to stick with the Ruby/Sapphire sprites. Still, I have to commend the effort. The fact that Season bothered to change almost all 386 sprites is pretty admirable. The graphics aren’t perfect, though. I can notice some hiccups in the added text boxes here and there, which could really take away from the experience. Then there is the graphical glitch that occurs when you trade Pokémon with an NPC. It’s nothing game-breaking though, and you’ll only be trading Pokémon a handful of times, so it’s not that much of a biggie.

The Sound

Not much has changed, audio-wise, other than being able to listen to the cries of the Pokémon that you couldn’t get before. The catchy,  adventurous tunes are still around to listen to, so that’s great. The only thing I have to nag about, are some of the Pokémon’s cries. Let’s take the Pokémon Heracross and Blaziken, for example. These Pokémon’s cries are bugged, giving off very obnoxious scratching sounds. And that sucks, since Heracross and Blaziken are two of my favourite Pokémon, but now I don’t even want to put them in my party because I’d have to hear their glitched-out battle cries all the time… Major bummer, dude. What’s more, some cries appear to have been swapped. I noticed that Omanyte has Machop’s battle cry here. That’s weird. While this shouldn’t be very jarring to you, the bug in the Pokémon cries are just horrible. Perhaps they can still be corrected?

The Addictiveness

Pokémon has always been addicting, but the regular games have always had one major flaw: You had to have friends who owned the other version of the same generation of Pokémon games, or you needed to have the other game and another GameBoy or Nintendo DS to really be able to catch ‘em all. I don’t know about you, but because I was always the only kid in my friend circle who played Pokémon, I never felt the urge to train an Abra, since I could never get an Alakazam. But now, that isn’t a problem anymore. You can get every last Pokémon in the game, and that is so satisfying. Finally, you can complete a Pokémon game. If only the regular games did things this way… Season made all the legendary Pokémon catchable in an event, so encountering them that way makes it so epic. It really couldn’t have worked out any better.

The Story

The story is the same as in regular Pokémon Emerald. Nothing has changed, really. You save Prof. Birch from an angry Zigzagoon, set out on a journey, stop the evil Team Aqua and Team Magma, save the world from annihilation, and becoming the Pokémon master. That’s it. Next!

The Depth

Aside from Pokémon already being one of the most in-depth games you can find, Season has implemented a lot of changes to the hack, which, as said in the description, expands on the original Emerald gameplay. Like I said, you can obtain all the Pokémon, which is already an A+. There have been subtle changes made to the map, giving you some extra places to train and catch Pokémon; you can find new items that are smartly placed around the map; many of the important trainers are made rematchable outside their events and various moves and Pokémon have had changes in types to make a bit more sense. No, it’s not an entirely new game with a unique storyline like, let’s say, Pokémon Light Platinum, but seriously, that’s not what’s important here. The amount of stuff that Season added into this hack is breathtaking. Great job.


The Difficulty

Pokémon Expert Emerald is a difficulty mod so, naturally, the challenge has been raised a lot. The Gym Leaders have bigger teams of a wider range of Pokémon to counter your obvious Pokémon of choice. The enemy AI is really smart, always letting their Pokémon hold something to aid them in battle, and to thwart your attempt to defeat them. You’ll probably white out at least once or twice, encouraging you to keep training and stocking up on items. I know I’ve lost my fair share of battles during my playthrough. Man… am I glad I’m not an actual Pokémon trainer, or else my Pokémon would’ve hated me for letting them faint so often…

Pokémon Expert Emerald is my favourite Pokémon hack that I’ve played. It has a couple of beauty mistakes in the form of minor technical errors, but these pale in comparison to the stuff the creator added to the original Pokémon Emerald. It’s the ROMhack of the most played game in the Retro Game Room, made to be even better than the original. The bar has been raised. Go out there, and catch ‘em all!


-          You can complete the entire PokéDex

-          Enemy AI is clever, and uses very smart tactics to make battles tough

-          Subtle changes in types and battle moves to make more sense

-          You can fight every member of the Elite Four again at the Battle Frontier


-          A couple Pokémon have broken battle cries

-          Some notable visual bugs

Pokemon Expert Emerald (Ver. 1.42) Cheat Codes

- On Route 117, Triathlete Maria is re-matchable and will use a Blissey which can provide a tremendous amount of experience when training in preparation for a Gym battle! You can also battle Wild Chansey, Wigglytuff and Clefable on Route 115 who give plenty of Experience Points.

- Once you've obtained your Fishing Rod from the Fisherman in Dewford Town, try using it on the surrounding earlier Routes and Cities, it will provide you with some useful Water Pokemon early in game rather than waiting to obtain Surf!

- You can obtain all Six Elemental Stones (Leaf, Water, Thunder, Fire, Sun & Moon) from the Lady at the beginning of Route 118.

- You can purchase a handful of helpful Berries from the guy standing in the center of Mauville City.

- Once You've defeated The Elite Four and the Champion, when you make your way to The Battle Frontier make sure you check out some of the houses. In one of the houses that is East of the Pokémon Center you will be able to Unofficially rematch the Elite Four Members.

anime_fan_one 02-15-15 - 11:02 AM
 My game must be glitched cause I have caught 2 Jirachis, Moltres isn't spawning where he should be at Evergrande City and some of the one time event poke'mon are respawning. The respawning one time events are Mudkip, Kabuto and Omanyte.
