So despite my love for Pokemon, for some reason, I took a break during Gen III and never played through any of the Gen III games. However, I have decided to rectify this by playing through all 7 games (handhelds and console) to culminate with the ultimate goal of having a living Pokedex in Pokemon Emerald. To help with this, and to document my progress as I go, I have decided to tumblr my progress at http://emerald386.tumblr.com/ I have created the following as my rough timeline of how I plan on playing through the games. Start with FireRed/Sapphire Somewhere down the line, start LeafGreen/Ruby (Ideally near the end of the game from their duo) Start Emerald when I am near done with Ruby While doing the boring breeding part to get the living Pokedex, play through Pokemon Colosseum and XD: Gale of Darkness In addition, I plan on using Pokemon only once on each playthrough, so I get a better experience of the generation I missed, and to make things more interesting. Besides, 3 Gardevoir playthroughs would be pretty boring. So before I start, I decided to ask Smogon what they felt I should do to make this more interesting, and any suggestions that I should keep in mind while playing through Gen III.
