Pokemon Emerald Rare Candy Cheat Pros and Cons

The Pros

By using the rare candy cheat, you can quickly level up your Pokemon, making them stronger and unlocking new moves and evolutions with ease.

This shortcut can save you countless hours of training, allowing you to focus on other aspects of your adventure.

As the name suggests, the rare candy is rare, not only in Pokemon Emerald but in every Pokemon game. This precious item gives you a chance to evolve and increase the level of your Pokemon without effort.


The Cons

However, relying too heavily on rare candies can lead to an imbalanced team. Your Pokemon may not gain the same stats and EV (Effort Values) that come from regular battles and training sessions, which could hinder their performance in more challenging battles later on.

Another drawback you may encounter when using the cheat is; it populates your PC with bundles of rare candies, which in the long run is not useful.

When improperly used, this will cause problems with your PC or bag.

    • The codes should work, please make sure you have the recommended GBA emulators for cheating. I recommend using MyBoy if you’re on Android, VBA or mGBA if you’re on PC. For Mac users, I recommend mGBA.

  1. When I use the PC option and withdraw rare candies it deletes my other items, as if it were transforming them into the rare candies.

  2. Hello, maybe you can help me…
    I have an old Thrustmaster action Replay (only 12 digit) on my GBA with pokemon emerald, I found that codebreaker codes for shiny and encounters work, but this one and the master ball one (82005274 0xxx) doesn’t, I don’t understand why… I go to the pokemart and see no difference.
    Can you help me please ?
    I specify that my Replay action requires me to enter a master code, here is the one I put : 00006FA7 000A
    This the one I use for wild encounters.
    thank you in advance, i’m desperate !

  3. If the code doesn’t work, try inputing it as Action Replay rather than Gameshark. It didn’t work in the mgba emulator before I did that.
