Pokémon Emerald cheats, codes, and hints for GameShark and Game Boy Advance

In addition to the original which was initially released several years ago, players now have access to newer versions that include the Visual Boy Advance as well as the My Boy Emulator versions.

However, what really makes this game so popular is the fact that there are thousands of Pokémon Emerald cheats contained within it just waiting to be discovered. You can even get customized cheat codes for the specific emulator that you’re playing with.

Warp codes

You need to enable the master code before you can use warp codes at all. To start, input a code and go to your preferred location.

But, make sure to disable the code afterward so you don’t find yourself coming back to the same spot over and over again.
