The player starts their journey in Littleroot Town, where the family has just moved from the Johto region after the player’s father, Norman, became the leader of the Petalburg Gym. The story starts off with the player riding in the moving van, which arrives in Littleroot. After exiting the van, the player’s mother explains that they have just arrived at their new home; they then enter the house together, and there are Vigoroth movers carrying boxes. The player’s mother suggests that the player introduce themselves to Professor Birch, a friend of Norman’s.
Upon arriving at Birch’s house, his wife greets the player, and upstairs the player meets Brendan/May (whichever is the opposite gender as the player), the child of Professor Birch who will become one of the player’s rivals. After the introduction, Brendan/May soon leaves to join Birch, who is out in the field. The player then finds Birch on Route 101, where he is being chased by a Zigzagoon. Birch asks the player to take a Poké Ball out of his bag lying on the ground; the player then chooses between Treecko, Mudkip, and Torchic as their starter Pokémon. After choosing, a battle immediately begins with the wild Zigzagoon. After rescuing Birch, he lets the player keep the chosen Pokémon as thanks for saving him. He then tells the player to meet up with Brendan/May on Route 103 for pointers on how to be a Trainer.
Once the player finds Brendan/May on Route 103, they have their first battle, after which they return to Birch’s lab, where the player receives a Pokédex and some Poké Balls. Outside of the lab, the player’s mother gives them the Running Shoes. Once the player arrives in Petalburg City, they meet with their father at the Gym, where he tells them that he is happy to learn that they have become a Trainer like him. During the conversation, a local boy named Wally enters the Gym and asks Norman to help him catch a Pokémon. Norman loans Wally a Zigzagoon and a Poké Ball. He then asks the player to go along and help Wally with his task. On Route 102, Wally catches a Ralts, and the Trainers then return to the Gym, where Wally gives his thanks before being called home by his mother. Norman then encourages the player to travel Hoenn and challenge the region’s Gym Leaders: Roxanne, Brawly, Wattson, Flannery, Norman, Winona, Tate and Liza, and Juan.
The player then travels through Route 104 and Petalburg Woods; just before the exit from the woods, the player encounters the nefarious Team Aqua. After battling, the Team Aqua Grunt reveals that their team is after something in Rustboro City.
At the Rustboro Gym, the player battles Roxanne and earns the Stone Badge; afterwards, the player runs into the Devon Researcher from Petalburg Woods. He tells the player that he has been robbed by Team Aqua and that the player must get the Devon Goods back from the evil team. The player then heads out onto Route 116 and discovers an old man named Mr. Briney who tells them that the villainous team has also taken his Wingull Peeko hostage and gone into the Rusturf Tunnel. The player confronts the Team Aqua Grunt inside the tunnel and retrieves the Devon Goods, as well as rescuing Peeko.
The gameplay in Emerald is largely the same as in Ruby and Sapphire. Much of the game takes place in an overhead style; players’ characters can move in four directions and can talk to other people on the overworld. Players can encounter wild Pokémon by walking into grass, surfing on their Pokémon, walking through caves, and other means. They can also battle other trainers’ Pokémon. When this happens, the game shifts to a battle screen where players and their Pokémon are seen on the front-left portion of the screen while opponents are viewed on the back-right portion. Stats of the Pokémon and their trainers are shown on the side of each participant; these stats include the Pokémon’s levels, each trainers’ number of Pokémon (from one to six), the Pokémon’s health, and any status effects, such as poison, paralysis or burn.
Trainers send out the first Pokémon in their party and they take turns attacking where the first strike is determined usually by the speed of the two Pokémon. Players can choose from one of four options: Fight, Bag, Switch, and Run. Each Pokémon has up to four moves that they can use, which have different effects, number of uses, and types, such as Grass or Psychic. When a Pokémon hits 0 hit points (HP), they faint, forcing the Pokémon’s trainer to switch out. Once one trainer runs out of Pokémon, the battle is over. When a human-controlled Pokémon wins a battle, the Pokémon gains experience. Enough experience will earn that Pokémon a higher level, which grants upgraded stats—attack, defense, special attack, special defense, HP, and speed—and sometimes grant new moves.
