Yes the animations move, and Emerald is way better than R/S you should get it.

I think mostly, ppl now days, are ashamed to show that they like Pokemon. I personally think that without the Internet, those sales might not be as good cause ordering off the Internet keeps your "secret" safer from your friends. In any case, Pokemon still rules and the ppl who think other wise drool.

Also, I've now seen some of the emerald animation along with the crystal, and IMO, THEY DIFFER A LOT! If you look closely at the two, C has about 3 different frame, in bases E has only 2 frames that they jest moved around (Poochyena's up and down, Zigzagoon's back and forth, etc...). I might see if I can find or make an example sometime when I'm board.

Is it just me, or is this getting predictable? Pokemon being the best selling game and all...

I'm sorry but I must agree. I keep the fact I like Poke'mon a secret at school unless I'm with Quin.

Thoughts: IT's MY BIRTHDAY!!! I'M A TEEN NOW!!! HALLAJHLELA!!!!

Heh, Pokémon doesn't really have to try to get to the top of the charts anymore...

I haven't bought Emerald yet and even though it's essentially R/S and the fanbase isn't as big as it used to be, I'm not surprised.

Sould of qouted myself from before. Someone wonted to know if the Emerald sprite were like the Crystel ones and everyone else seem'd to think so, but my experience was different, so I was jest giving an example of a comparison of the two. Here, I'll sum up what was said:

Mr.X: ( hey do the pkm in emerald move like crystal)

ShinyPkmnMaster: Yep,they move like in Crystal.I have Emerald,and the animations are pretty good.

Charmander #4: Yes the animations move, and Emerald is way better than R/S you should get it.

Missingno mystery: I've now seen some of the emerald animation along with the crystal, and IMO, THEY DIFFER A LOT! If you look closely at the two, C has about 3 different frame, in bases E has only 2 frames that they jest moved around (Poochyena's up and down, Zigzagoon's back and forth, etc...).

SEE!!! I was only keeping my word! Mr.X asked, and I answerd!

You know, its no surprise anymore.... Pokemon is always on top, what's new? It's not really that big a deal considering every game that comes out makes it to the best seller list, and stays there for a while too..... ^ ^
