Emerald (Japanese: 第六章 エメラルド編 The Sixth Chapter: Emerald) is the sixth chapter of the Pokémon Adventures manga, consisting of four volumes. It began serialization in February 2005, and ended in October 2008.

The chapter begins with focus on a Trainer named Emerald, who is sent by Professor Oak and Crystal to catch Jirachi within seven days. On arrival at the Battle Frontier, he ends up interfering in the opening ceremonies and gains the second challenge of clearing the seven battle facilities by defeating the Frontier Brains within that time. During this time, Emerald befriends Todd Snap and discovers that the masked Guile Hideout is seeking Jirachi for evil purposes.
