These new achievments suck...
25 Dec 2019
i'm a bad developer, so it checks out
25 Dec 2019
I was almost done and today came a lot of achievements. There are nonsense there, winning 100 times in a row in Battle Tower is absurd. I even got discouraged from trying to Master...
30 Dec 2019
Wowie look at that score ratio now
3 Jan 2020
Good thing I've mastered this before. Also that score ratio and the 50/100 wins in a row jesus christ just why would you do this to these people

Mastered! Perfect set. No issues for me. Good job! Thank you.

Why are Ruby/Sapphire separate?
13 Sep 2021
Not to be boring, but these Battle Tower achievements are boring. Using myself as an example, it took me a long time to get just the one to win 50 times at Level 50 and when I was continuing to make the 100 wins at any level, I not only lost the chance to get the achievement but also lost the desire to want it.
13 Sep 2021
It may be crying on my part, but the interest in wanting to continue is diminished by the number of victories needed to achieve it. If you're going to keep the Battle Tower achievements, could you at least decrease the amount of victories needed to get them?
13 Sep 2021
It may make it less boring to get the Battle Tower achievements. It's just my opinion and my request to the developer of the achievements.
10 Oct 2021
Mastered, Battle tower was easy, if you are having trouble to get 100 wins streak, don't even think about playing emerald, don't even dream about playing platinum, you will lost interest in achievements at all
10 Oct 2021
Just get there with a good team, i've commented in 100 wins streak achievement page about the team i 've used, take a look, maybe it will help you

Mastered! According to RetroArch, this took 40:09 in real time (with the emulator spedup) My final in-game time was 149:37. I have to say, out of all the base Pokemon games I've mastered, this one is by far the grindiest. Just reaching 177 in the Pokedex already takes a lot of grinding due to all the high evolution level caps involved. However, the achievements make the grinding even worse. You need to raise three Pokemon all the way to Level 100 for the battle tower and you probably also need to raise a version exclusive to ~ Level 60 for that achievement. I would estimate about 80 hours of my playthrough was spent grinding exp in the Sky Pillar. This made the mastering process very unenjoyable, although that may have been inevitable for this game. To speed up the process of training three Pokemon all the way to Level 100, I recommend using a team of 4-5 Zigzagoons and the Pokemon you're training. After each battle, check your party to see if the Zigzagoons picked up any Rare Candies. I did this throughout my entire playthrough and managed to get ~140 rare candies. The battle tower was not as difficult as the one in Crystal version imo, despite having way more battles (although I did that battle tower on Level 10 mode, big mistake). I would like to give a big thank you to @Rarronak for the battle tower strategy, it saved me a lot of time. With all that said, it's time for Sapphire version :)

Finally, platinado. I had to grind hard for some cheevos and while some were meh, I loved revisiting this game again and finally finishing it. I'm proud that I finished Epic Sweep using only Mawile (MVP for sure) and Zangoose and the Champion of Champions with Gardevoir and Walrein (Blaziken went underleveled). Thanks for the set :)
