Waterfall Not Working?

I have all 8 badges. I have waterfall and I have given the ability to a Pokemon. I can make it all the way to the waterfall at Ever Grande City (am I at the right one? The waterfall off of route 128?). But when I arrive I can't go up the waterfall, and when I try to manually select 'waterfall' I'm told I can't use that here. I thought the 8th badge was supposed to let me use that HM? How do I get into Ever Grande City? BTW, I am using an emulator so maybe this is a glitch? I have tried saving the game, closing it and reopening it, but nothing. I also tried going back to talk to the 8th gym leader to confirm I had my badge.

Possibly a glitch in the em. It is supposed to work if you approach the waterfall, instead of just saying it is a raging waterfall, it asks whether you would like to use waterfall.

Other than that I don't know what the problem is.

I read this question and I ran to the game just o try iy myself and see if it works with me. To start I can say that is not a problem of the emulator because I have one (and that is what I use to usually play) and I can use waterfall. So maybe it is a small error you are making: you can't simply go up the waterfall and even you have the waterfall HM, it doesn't happens automaticaly. You must go the closest you can to the waterfall and simply press the A button. If still, nothing happens, it can only be a glitch.

Hope I helped

If your playing on ruby and if your playing on an app (Called Gba) dont use fast forward. Go to regular speed and then face the waterfall. When you face the waterfall then you can use the hm waterfall. Hope this works

Alright for the record, I do not support emulators. Even if they are now legal, I do not support them in any way. It most likely is a glitch. Because you have done everything that you needed to do and it still does not work. Just in case though, make sure that you taught the move to a pokemon. Even if you did, take the HM and teach waterfall to another pokemon. Hope this helps. Buy the game.
