I was just watching a video of someone starting a new game on Emerald, and when the professor was being attacked by the Zigzagoon, and you look in his bag, the Pokemon were Lanturn, Blastoise, and another water Pokemon. Why weren't they the starters? When I played it, I remember them being torchic, mudkip and treeko.
The person making the video then went into some tall grass and encountered a meganium and a groovile. Was he using an action replay or something? I couldn't tell, because the microphone on my computer isn't working.
Or am I just missing something massive here?
