'''Emerald''' (Japanese: '''エメラルド''' ''Emerald'') is a [[Pokédex holder|main character]] in the manga series [[Pokémon Adventures]].
 
==Character==
Emerald is a Pokémon Trainer born somewhere in the [[Hoenn]] region. Due to the loss of his parents at a young age, he was moved between his family members and was constantly bullied by his cousins due to his short height and tendency to rely on the help of Pokémon to get objects from high places. These events led to Emerald developing a complex about his height and a dislike of Pokémon. To get over his height issues, he used hair gel to style his hair upwards and wore various gadgets and clothing to make himself look taller than he actually is. He stops wearing these gadgets as well as his upwards hairstyle in the {{chap|Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire}}.
 
The constant moving from family member to family member led to Emerald developing the ability to determine a Pokémon's birthplace. If a Pokémon goes on a rampage, Emerald can calm it by surrounding the Pokémon with a "seal" of soil from its birthplace. The Pokémon is then calmed by a sense of nostalgia. For his skills, he is given the title of '''"Calmer"''' ({{tt|鎮める者|しずめるもの}} ''Calmer'').
 
Emerald claims to not like Pokémon themselves, but he likes [[Pokémon battle]]s. As he does not train his own Pokémon, he borrows the Pokémon he uses from {{adv|Crystal}}. Despite these claims, he is very close to {{p|Latios}} and {{p|Latias}}, who call him "{{tt|Em|VIZ Media; Rald in the Japanese and Chuang Yi versions}}".
 
==History==
In ''[[PS308|As Luck Would Have It, Kirlia]]'', Emerald challenged the [[Battle Pike]]. As the facility had no rental Pokémon, Emerald instead used a party of Pokémon received from Crystal. After making his way through the various traps located in the Battle Pike, Emerald faced off against {{FB|Pike Queen|Lucy}}, the Pike Queen, and won, earnin the Luck Symbol. Afterward, he, Todd, and Latias searched through the rooms of the Battle Pike to calm down suspicious Pokémon that were also planted like Sceptile.
 
In ''[[PS311|A Dust-Up With Dusclops]]'', Emerald challenged the [[Battle Pyramid]] with another set of Pokémon received from Crystal, Emerald traversed through the Pyramid's dark maze. After making his way to the peak, Emerald faced off against the Pyramid King, {{FB|Pyramid King|Brandon}} and his powerful [[Brandon's legendaryLegendary titans|Pokémon]] {{p|Regirock}}, {{p|Regice}}, and {{p|Registeel}}. Eventually, with Sceptile's assistance, Emerald managed to defeat Brandon and earn the Brave Symbol.
 
In ''[[PS314|A Sketchy Smattering of Smeargle]]'', {{FB|Salon Maiden|Anabel}}, the Salon Maiden, and the other Frontier Brains accused Emerald of stealing the Battle Factory's rental Pokémon and attacking Noland. To prove his innocence, Emerald revealed he came to the Battle Frontier to capture the Wish Pokémon, {{padv|Jirachi}}. Emerald, the Brains, and Todd all traveled to to the [[Artisan Cave]], where Jirachi was rumored to be resting. Emerald managed to find Jirachi at the center of the cave, but his attempt to capture it was impeded by a man wearing armor known as [[Guile Hideout]], allowing Jirachi to escape. Angered that he lost his chance at Jirachi, Guile fled as well, launching an attack from his sword to hide his escape. Sceptile, the Sudowoodo that attacked Todd, and a {{p|Dusclops}} from the Battle Pike appeared to protect Emerald from the attack.
 
In ''[[PS314|Sneaky Like Shedinja]]'', Emerald challenged the [[Battle Arena]]. Instead of another party of Pokémon from Crystal, Emerald instead used Sceptile, Sudowoodo, and Dusclops. During his battle against {{FB|Arena Tycoon|Greta}}, the Arena Tycoon, Emerald managed to win by cheering his Pokémon on, something he wouldn't do normally. After winning and obtaining the Guts Symbol, Emerald and his Pokémon passed out from exhaustion and are taken to a hotel room by Greta and Todd. Assuming his regular clothing would be uncomfortable to sleep in, Todd and Greta try to change Emerald into a pair of pajamas, only to discover that the boy is unusually short, much more so than they had expected. Todd had Greta pretend she didn't see anything and sent her out of the room.
 
In ''[[PS337|Epilogue]]'', Emerald was congratulated by his allies on his victory against Guile. After receiving the Ability Symbol, Emerald realized there was only one day left to obtain the final Symbol and begged Tucker to let him challenge the Battle Dome again. Tucker allowed Emerald to compete, but without any other Trainers to join in the tournament, Emerald had to go up against his fellow Pokédex holders instead. As Jirachi went back to its thousand year slumber, Emerald thanked it for granting his wish to have friends. Afterward, Emerald competed in the Pokédex holder tournament, which he ended up winning, earning him the Tactics Symbol.
 
==={{chap|Diamond & Pearl}}===
In ''[[PS408|High-tailing It from Haunter]]'', Emerald was briefly seen together with the other [[Pokédex holder]]s from [[Kanto]], [[Johto]], and [[Hoenn]] when the [[Advanced level Grunt]] was talking to {{adv|Diamond}} about the [[Pokédex]].
 
==={{chap|Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire}}===
 
With the crisis averted, Emerald celebrated not having to worry about the world ending. Afterward, Emerald said his farewells to Ruby and went to meet with the Frontier Brains.
