Great graphics and support for two-on-two Pokémon battles are just some of the exciting innovations in Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, the first Pokémon games for the Game Boy Advance. The main gameplay is similar to the previous Game Boy games--explore the games' towns solving puzzles and capturing, nurturing and training Pokémon to use in battles along your journey. The biggest gameplay breakthrough is that trainers can now take two Pokémon into battle instead of just one. Since each Pokémon offers a unique combination of strengths and weaknesses, doubling the number that can battle at once adds immeasurably to the games' richness and depth.
Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire's graphics are greatly enhanced for the GBA. In the battle scenes, a rich palette and subtle shading gives both the trainer and the Pokémon themselves a great degree of realism, and the same meticulous attention to detail can be seen in the world scenes--artistic touches like ripples on a pond and intricate ironwork in a modern city bring the world of Pokémon to life like never before.
As with the previous Pokémon games on the original Game Boy, both Ruby and Sapphire include exclusive Pokémon, and you'll find that some species are common in one game and rare in the other--so trading with friends via the link cable is a must if you want to catch 'em all. As before, you can challenge a friend, but now you can also take part in two-on-two battles too. Link cable(s) and extra game cartridge(s) are required for multiplayer gaming.

Recommended for anyone who can read! Seriously it is that good.
Nintendo's Pokemon franchise became a massive success in its native Japan relatively quickly. Although it took the franchise a little longer to catch on in America, it finally did catch on, and when it did, it took the nation by storm. Pokemon games and products sold like crazy, despite the fact that the franchise was virtually unrecognized in America at its time of release. By 2003, the phemonenon was pretty much dead in America, but still, Nintendo went ahead and released the two latest adventures in the series, Ruby and Sapphire. How do these games up? Read on for my review.
-THIS GAME GIVES YOU MORE OF THE SAME MONSTER CATCHING AND BATTLING ACTION THAT YOU HAVE GROWN TO LOVE IN THE FIRST AND SECOND GAMES. To put it simply, if you liked the first game, it's quite unlikely that you won't like this one.
-THE GAME GRAPHICS ARE DRASTICALLY IMPROVED OVER THOSE OF THE PREDECESSOR TITLES. In this game, the graphics are not only improved, but the game is also optimized to make usage of the Game Boy Advance's thirty-two bit technology. It's nothing earth-shattering, but it's as good as a Game Boy Advance game like this can look!
-IT'S NOT JUST A REHASH OF EARLIER GAMES. Although the game uses the same general formulas, the game is entirely new, and the world is much larger this time around. Even after you beat the game, there is still a ton of stuff to do, like capture all of the creatures in the game and train new monsters. The game even introduces the concept of two-on-two battles!
-NINTENDO DESIGNED THIS GAME WITH PLAYER CONVENIENCE IN MIND. Remember how in the first games you had to go through all those menus just to use an item (like your bike or fishing pole?Read more ›
Pokemon Sapphire also has a 2-on-2 battle mode. Fighting with 2 pokemon can be lots of fun.
The graphics are much better than the other pokemon games.
Another cool feature that I like is the new attacks. They are simply awesome! Blaze Kick and Sky Uppercut are some of my favorite attacks in the game.
