Product Description

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.

Yes this game is the old same old same old. Additionally, many of the best features of gold and silver are missing, however the game still stands tall above the rest!
Recommended for anyone who can read! Seriously it is that good.

Pokemon 3 (Ruby and Sapphire versions.) The third installment in the Game Boy Pokemon RPG series.
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.
PROS:
-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?

This is one of the best pokemon games I own (which is a lot). Pokemon Sapphire let's you choose to be a boy or girl and you choose your own starter pokemon. THe choices are Treeko (grass), Torchic (fire), or Mudkip (water). All of them are awesome although I started out with Torchic.
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.
Pros:
-Cool graphics
-New attacks
-2-on-2 battle mode
-New pokemon
Cons:
-Can't trade with Red/Bluee/Yellow/Gold/Silver/Crystal
Well, that's all I can think of. I hope you get this game. It rocks!!

The only reason i gave it 4 out of 5 stars is it because it is sooooooooo easy game.I completed the game and captured many pokemons include the legendary pokemon(regirock,....etc) in 16 hours. But it is very intresting.

Okay it's almost the same game as past games but who cares? On with the review.
GRAPHICS: 10/10
The graphics are much better than past games. There is now more color and when you walk in a cave there is fog. When you walk on the beach you can see your footprints in the sand for a few seconds.
STORYLINE: 8/10
Though it's basically the same storyline as previous games it's still pretty good. Become a Pokemon master by traveling to different cities and catching different Pokemon. You can now choose if you want to be a boy or girl.
SOUND: 9/10
The music is pretty much the same as in previous versions but it sounds much better. Every time you enter a new route the sound changes. The battle music is awesome.
BATTLES: 10/10
There is now double battles in which you use two Pokemon and your opponent uses two Pokemon. The battles at the end are pretty tough but you should be able to win.
OVERALL 10/10
Definetly the best Pokemon game made (with the exception of Sapphire which is pretty much the same game) and one of the GBA's best.

This game is boring. You can onlty expoler Hoen and there's not a lot of Pokemon form the other games. You can't connect to the other games and after the elite foure thres nothing for you to do except cath all the pokemon. You can't even travel to fight people in Jhoto and Kanto. Thats why I liked Gold and Sliver but this is stupid. You still have to make due with only Four moves not six or five, but only four moves. and some of the new pokemon is ugly and even some look alike. Also in the Pelterbug forrest cath two Slakouth because you can trade one for a pokemon I can't pronounce in Peltaburg city. In Peltaburg city you have to fight roxanne. She has a Lv. 15 Geodude and LV.14 Nosepass. Nosepass uses a attacked call Rock to mp it reduces your ablie and doese Damage!!! Use berries if you have them. If you have Treecko there is a guy in route 104 that gives a TM called Bullet Seed. teach that TM to Treecko. Bullet Seed is a Grass move that attacks 2 -5 times. It doese crital damage to Rock and fighting pokemon. If you don't have Treccko, another good poke for the gym leader is Dustox. Level up a wrumple to lv.10 and learn confusion. and Gust at lv.13. At slateport, if you defeat all the trainers in the shack you get six Sodapop!!!
