Appendix talk:Emerald walkthrough
Regional Pokedex Walkthrough
Should there be a separate section detailing the legendary pokémon in the game?--Chalkwriter 14:35, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
It's missing a section, which includes the 7th Gym Leader and the Elite 4. Is anybody gonna add this? Pokedex493 00:46, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

In Appendix:Emerald walkthrough/Section 2, Content 4.1.1 PokéNav (i.e. https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Appendix:Emerald_walkthrough/Section_2#Pok.C3.A9Nav) it states:
"There are several people whom you have already encountered, that you must seek out and speak with in order to register them"
Among this list of characters you must talk to in order to register them in your PokéNav is Roxanne; this is false. I've recently restarted a couple of brief playthroughs of Emerald and I can confirm from all of them that Roxanne will not register in your PokéNav if you talk with her. At some point she'll call you and then become registered, usually (possibly always) as you're sailing from Route 104 to Dewford City for the first time. I don't know the specific trigger for this (whether it's time and/or location based). Norman is the same way too - he won't register in your PokéNav if you speak to him immediately after acquiring it (he'll call you soon after and then register). Although, in spite of all I've said it wouldn't surprise me if it were possible to register Roxanne via talking if done after a certain sequence of events or through the activation of some unknown-to-me trigger. Hence, why I didn't edit the page outright (by removing the mention of Roxanne), in case I were wrong.--23890afjn8gjh (talk) 13:05, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
