The others worth playing are Platinum, and Black/White 2. Can't recommend X/Y yet because they're not out yet. But if you're short on money, just get HG/SS for now or do what Digglett said.
None of them have Hoenn in them, but you can get most 3rd gen Pokemon through other means.
Can you trade pokemon between your Emulators and a console though? I'd always been a collector in pokemon, I preferred showing them off and hunting them rather than fighting, which is what I would focus on
PS: Why are we using a spoiler for that word :O
Ah right, guess I'm going to skip on pokemon again then. I really don't want to have to download a bunch of programs to get old pokemon without rebuying all the games. Thanks all have fun

Right so apparently; "Nintendo has sent out some new details regarding Pokémon X & Y. Specifically, it has confirmed that the types of Chespin, Fennekin and Froakie will be pure Grass, Fire and Water respectively. In addition to that, they have released six direct feed screenshots of the Pokémon in battle, which have been added to our screenshot page.

A bit annoyed by that really, but then again, it doesn't say that they don't change types when they evolve. So fingers crossed!
