So I have been out of the loop with pokemon for a while-aside from the first gen, which I played when GBC was still new, I only picked up GEN IV when it was platinum was brand new, and that's where I stayed. But I want to move on and play GEN III games and dust off my DS Lite. Of course it will be thru my R4 card, so I can freely put my GBA game save on my computer and add AR cheat codes. This brings me to a question: I know that event pokemon obtained from mystery event items like azure flute only worked after you beat elite 4. Is that true still for Emerald and GEN1 Remake? I want to give myself all the AR items like the old sea map and get all the event pokemon as "Naturally" as I can. So without spoilers, is it the same story here? And BTW, if you did the same thing, what codes did you use? I hear that you need to put not only the codes that will add the item in your inventory, but also the activation code for events and ect, it sounds much more complicated than just using Pokegen.
