Breeding: Breeding is now twice as fast as it was in RS! How you ask? Simple, firstly deposit the two Pokemon you want to breed in the Pokemon center, Then put a Pokemon with Magma Armour or Flame Body in your party, having these either one of these in your party will reduce the egg’s hatching time by half. Combine this with the Mach Bike’s speed, makes egg hatching less of a chore.
Another helpful addition, is to pass down natures from the mother or Ditto (Which can be found in the Fossil’s Maniac’s tunnel he digs after the Elite Four). Equipped an ever stone to the said Pokemon (These can be found of wild Geodudes) and the offspring has a50% of having the same nature.
Mass-selection: Remember in Pokemon box you could select a group of Pokemon at a time? You can on Emerald too. By pressing select when you’re looking in one of your Pokemon PC boxes, the hand will turn yellow, press L and it will create a box which you can drag over your Pokemon to ‘pick’ them all up at the same time, you can move them into other boxes more easily this way. Remember though, Pokemon can’t over lap other Pokemon.
Abilities now have an out-of-battle effect, having these first in your party will trigger events that will make the field slightly different.

This simply means the said Pokemon is INCREDIABLY common for the day.
“The Energy Guru has said he will give bargains in [Number of days]”
When that day comes, The Guru will sell vitamins for half price all day long. This is incredibly useful if you’re EV training Pokemon and are a bit short on cash.
“The Game Corner’s service day!”
You will have much more luck in the Game Corner.
”The Berry Master will be in Lillycove.”
A new one. The Berry Master is a SUPER blender, who, never, ever misses the target. He will make your berries AMAZING.
