In Pokémon Emerald there’re 7 legendaries you can catch however in the emulator you can’t. Is that due to copyright or do you have to catch them in order for the locations to spawn?


I’m using the NO$GBA emulator and it’s the best emulator for GBA ROMs. Easy to instal, good graphic, sound and you can play your games in full screen. If you are beginners in this kind of thing I recommend the MGBA Emulator, that emulator is good too.

I’ve tried both the emulators for Android… At first they worked just fine. But suddenly both of them stopped working. I wonder why is that so and what can I do to play Fire Red without any disturbance.


I’ve put these codes into the my boy emulator for the android phones and cant get them to work. I was wondering if I was doing it wrong or maybe there’s an issue with the rom I got
