Emerald is more challenging, straightforward and focused on battles so if that's your thing then pick Emerald.
If you prefer ANYTHING else (team building, believable world, story, amount of features, breeding) then pick ORAS.>>35897000>You literally have no reason to play R/S over Emerald
Well, I can think of a few reasons. Contest halls are better than battle tents. Emerald doesn't have Zangoose. Brawly is much better designed in RS. Match call has that annoying drawback that people call you while you play.
Can't think of anything else.>>35897339
Well, I wouldn't. I don't use them in my playthroughs anyway.>>35897404
The fact that you have to go to Sky Pillar twice to get Rayquaza sucks to be honest.
