This appears to be a legitimate card with a newer (SRAM) chip. Other sites identify similar Pokemon Ruby chip as legitimate And another identifies a similar chip as well (Note in the following image, only the upper card is legitimate, but has the same smaller chip style on the right)

According to Bulbapedia: In Generation III, Breloom can learn Mach Punch only by leveling up (at lvl. 23), so if you want to learn both Mach Punch and Spore, you must put Everstone on Shroomish and level him up to lvl. 54, learning Giga Drain at level 45, then you should let him evolve to Breloom and teach him Mach Punch through the Move Reminder.

You can find Rayquaza in the Sky Pillar, in the upper portion of route 131. You'll have to go there when following the main quest when you'll have to "wake up" it after the start of the fight between Kyogre and Groudon. You won't be able to catch it then because it will fly away, although you can actually go back there once the fight between the other two ...

Major rewrite from the first revision, but I've calculated it all manually: Pokemon Emerald National Pokedex Total: 213/386 Without trades, access to event-exclusive items and Pokemon, Mystery Gift, or an E-reader (Pokemon functionality of which is Japanese-cart exclusive), the best you can do is 213 Pokemon. Notable Obtainable Pokemon One of Latios and ...

Different kinds of Poké Balls have different animations for when they pop open. In your case, I believe it's either a Nest Ball or a Luxury Ball.

Save immediately before the battle. For legendaries, the nature, IVs, and shininess are chosen when you enter battle with that Pokemon for the first time. For traveling Pokemon, this means they are locked the first time and won't change for repeat encounters, but for one-off legendaries like Kyogre, this means you can simply save before the battle and reload ...

There aren't really any cheats that will help you progress; but your description of where you are stuck in the story is just vague enough that I suspect you have missed something and may need retrace your steps. It sounds like you are somewhere in Part 15 or Part 16 of Bulbapedia's walkthrough for Pokemon Emerald. Once Kyogre and Groudon start their battle,...

According to Serebii and Reddit, You DO get something for having a RSE pokemon travel back with you to ORAS Hoenn, you should get a certificate like this: How to obtain it: Go to the Cove Lily hotel in Lilicove City, on the second floor you'll see a guy wearing a dinosaur pants walking around a table, he is the director of Gamefreak, talk to him and show ...

Breloom does not learn Spore. As seen on Bulbapedia, he can only acquire Spore as a Shroomish (prior evolution). Your breeding does not work because Spore is not an Egg move for Shroomish. In Generation 3 Shroomish learns Spore at level 54 You can breed a Shroomish with Spore, but both parents must already know Spore (because it is a level up move). ...

The "small indents" you mention are possible locations for Secret Bases. In order to interact with them, you need the Secret Power move, obtainable as TM 43 on route 111 and purchaseable from the Slateport City market stalls.

@Moondane suggested one method. A second method is to obtain both a female Shroomish/Breloom and a breeding compatible male that know Giga Drain, such as Roselia or another Shroomish. The Shroomish offspring will know Giga Drain. Then evolve the offspring into Breloom at level 23 to learn Mach Punch (or evolve later and use the Move Reminder). This also ...

According to Bulbapedia, FireRed and LeafGreen (which were released after Ruby) were the first games in which the Pokédex included species' types in their entries. Thus, you cannot view a Pokémon's types in the Ruby Pokédex.

I advise keeping the Sableye. In 3rd Gen, it has no weaknesses. Not only that, but it can do more damage to psychic types. Night Shade is not the best move in this situation, unless you grind up the Sableye, as it only deals damage equal to his level. I would definitely, however, advise grinding his level up, 41 would be a good level as he gets Shadow ...

I would recommend using Swampert against the duo, as Surf is 2x effective against Rock/Psychic and hits both of them at once. Swellow is also a good choice since Steel is 2x effective against Rock/Psychic and Flying is immune to Ground-type moves (so you won't be damaged by Earthquake). Ideally, your Swellow should have enough base Speed to go first and ...

You can get it from the Devon President in Rustboro City after having delivered his letter to Steven in Dewford Town.

I believe the answer you're looking for is anywhere between 10-20 years. These batteries are still only just starting to die out from the launch of the game, so if that's any indication you should be set for a while.

The board is designed to take two different form factors for the component. If you look at the PCM, you will see a smaller white box which matches where the chip is, and the parallel tracks are on the board, under the white marking. If you look at the marking for the box you will see it is for 1M/512K flash. I don't know if the form factors are related to ...

Any Pokemon that gains EXP from battle (either through holding Exp.Share, or being switched out) will gain Effort Value points for defeating that Pokemon, regardless of their actual contribution to the defeat of the enemy Pokemon. For your Swablu (+macho brace) example: If you were fighting a wild Golbat for +2speed, and switched your leading Swablu out for ...

I don't know what (besides the player) influences a trendy phrase change, but; yes, if the trend has changed, the 6 Feebas tiles were re-randomized, and might be among the 75 tiles you had previously checked under the previous trend. Do keep in mind that a Feebas tile does not guarantee encountering a Feebas. So if you aren't already, you need to check ...

Get some Pokemon that can battle on par with a level 70, at least one knowing the moves Sing or Hypnosis, or another sleep-inducing move. Fly to Pacifidlog Town. Surf to Sky Pillar, and you must have a Mach Bike. Some of the floors have weak spots, which you can only go over if you're going at full speed on the "Mach Bike". Save the game. This is extremely ...

I would recommend bringing a Pokemon that can paralyze or put Rayquaza to sleep. Moves like Thunder Wave or Hypnosis come to mind. These will increase your odds. (In addition, Rayquaza awakens from Rest after two turns while putting it to sleep yourself is likely to last longer, and Rest is a headache to contend with anyway.) Besides that, you're pretty ...

Leech Seed has been present since the 1st generation games. In those games, it had extra mechanics unique to it compared to other volatile statuses. It was the only volatile status that could not affect every Pokemon - it failed against Grass-type Pokemon. The text that the foe "evaded the attack" would appear when used against opposing Grass-types, and also ...

I'm not quite sure I understand the scenario. But if you have rock smash you should be able to go through the cave where you first found Briney now. Edit: I'm pretty sure you need to have rock smash in the first place to get to meteor falls and back to Rustboro city, so this should be the solution. If you need help finding the cave I'm talking about, let me ...

The TM Dig, outside a battle, allows the player to come back at the entrance of caves or some buildings (including gyms), as it is said on Bulbapedia. There is no other utility, like digging the ground to find items.

Did you get all of the games from the same place? They may be fakes, which do not work in the Pal Park. Try looking at this guide to detect if it is a fake. Here's a summary: Check the Nintendo logo, Nintendo Seal of Quality, ESRB rating, and GBA logo. Make sure the game doesn't give a warning when trying to load the page. Make sure the label is metallic, ...
