Pokemon Emerald 2
Remake From: Pokemon Emerald
Remake by: luuma
This game is well balanced man. The difficulty curve is on point; every one of its 386 obtainable Pokemon has been given a fresh, healthy lick of paint; the world of Hoenn has gotten a dirty great global route makeover, with three or four all new routes and four cheeky puzzle islands to explore on the endless ocean; I've added some grubby looking tiles that count as safe zones in caves where wild pokemon cannot appear; the game's story and route progression's had a few changes; the pokedex has had some bant added, there's a few new moves, two new mons, the trainer battles have been redone, the gyms and E4 are more varied than ever, and (last but not least) you can check the clocks in Pokemarts to get the current time.
Alongside this we have the classic spattering of reuseable tms and move tutors, the phys/spec split, BW repels system, ORAS easy berry planting, pokemarts inside pokecenters, and day and night. And a free of charge gym difficulty patch if you feel under-challenged.
This isn't the most unique, up-to-date, or flashy rom, but oh man is it polished!

Tickets in Mt. Pyre (Ho-oh/lugia), Birch's Lab (Deoxys), Granite Cave (mew), and rt 119 (with cut, lati@s). A guy in slateport makes em work.
You get suicune off steven in mossdeep for beating the champion, rather than beldum, which is in the wild.
i think I removed entei and raikou from some secret new pokemon. I'm really sorry to the fans.
moltres, zapdos and articuno are gifts for beating the HOENN dex (the one with only the 200 basic forms or starter evolutions)
mew breeds with ditto, making mewtwo
Celebi is on rt 104 in a little grove, lv30
!ERROR in VICTORY ROAD: Warp outside of recommended parameters. This is not a Bug, it's actually Bird/Normal.
