|Nintendo's monster-battling franchise makes its Game Boy Advance debut with the simultaneous release of Pokémon: Ruby Version and Pokémon: Sapphire Version, which differ in the frequency of certain monster types. While gameplay closely follows the framework established in earlier titles in the series, a number of enhancements have been incorporated. The world in which players explore is entirely different, as are the strategies associated with the turn-based battles. Certain matches have players selecting two different Pokémon to fight their rival's two creatures, allowing for more choices in combat. The setting for both versions is the region of Hoenn, a chain of islands featuring a variety of climates and terrain, including mountain areas, arid deserts, murky swamps, and more. A total of 15 cities are available to explore, each filled with local residents and fellow trainers who will challenge players to hone their battle skills. Players will be able to carry a party of six Pokémon at once, after first catching them in the wild, with others stored in boxes accessible from each city's personal computer network. Tools or machines can also be acquired to perform tasks such as chopping down trees, fishing, surfing, planting berries, smashing rocks, and even flying. One hundred new monsters have been added into the mix, upping the total of catchable creatures to 200. Ensnared Pokémon are automatically catalogued within an upgraded Pokédex, whether it's the shark-like Sameheader or the pelican-inspired Pelipper, requiring players to learn their special abilities as they evolve into more powerful types. Backgrounds in the fight scenes are now depicted in different shades of color, and the backpack introduced in Pokémon: Gold and Silver has been replaced with a roomier utility belt to carry items found along the journey. Unlike previous games in the popular series, players are unable to transfer existing Pokémon from earlier titles on the Game Boy and Game Boy Color.|

Pokemon Ruby Version (Nintendo Game Boy Advance, 2003)
This is a good game. Graphics are nice, and the pokemon are amazing. Only gripe about Hoenn is...well, WAY TOO MUCH WATER. But, that doesn't take away too much from the game. Team Rocket is replaced by the vicious Team Magma and the intelligent Team Aqua. With the fate of Hoenn in jeopeordy, you must journey to find answers pertaining to Team Magma's ignorant desicion too awaken the legendary Pokemon Groudon. It brings about blazing hate waves to Hoenn, and it is up to you to stop it. Can't give away the rest of the plot, haven't gotten that far into the game. Anyway, the game is great, and worth a buy.
A fun game for my son
My son had been bugging me to buy this game, though his brother already owned a copy that he plays. It was his choice instead of something else as a gift. I liked it because it was way cheaper than the ones in the store. The only thing he has has complained about was that it had been wiped clean and he wanted it not to be so he could get all the unlocked Pokemon, without having to play the whole game and finding out that certain Pokemon were no longer on it (meaning it was saved on someone else's Game Boy memory & no longer in the game itself. Also he wouldn't be able to trade them and such). Otherwise, I would recommended any of the Pokemon games as he would play this all day if I allow him.
Great game for the advance systems. Few minor flaws or annoyances in this game are a lot better moves to use start in the next Gen 4 Sp. Atk and Physical Atk works differently in these earlier games, what I mean is that each attack is decided either special or physical based on the actual type of the move. For instance if you have a Blaziken trying to learn Blaze kick, this move would automatically be considered special because it is a fire move, even though from gen 4 onwards it is known as a physical move. So this sucks because say your Blazikens physical attack is high but his special isn't all of his fighting type moves would be strong but all of his fire type moves would be nerfed. To find out which types are consider special or physical visit serebii or pokemondb. One other annoyance with this game is your item bag, it fills up very quickly so if you run across a great item or tm there's a good chance your bag won't even have room for it so you'll have to get to a center or shop to either sell off some stuff or store it in the pc, and go all the way back and find it again. Some great points to this game is the storyline for the most part is pretty cool. If you like catching legendaries later on you'll be glad to know there's a s**t ton in this game, like 6 or 7. Berries were introduced in this game so you can have fun using and growing those for gym battles. And whats cool to me is you get access to the daycare pretty early on in this one unlike freakin Fire Red (rolls eyes) so you can breed to your hearts content at the git-go. All in all a great pokemon game that is plenty fun.
Game was in good condition and speedy delivery of the item.
My son loves playing Pokemon games. It is working pretty good. There were only a few minor glitches to this game. For example, it will stop for a second while saving a profile and each time he battles a gym leader, the music sounds a little different than normal. He really likes the fact that it is an older Pokemon game because he prefers playing the older games. He said that it is one of the easiest Pokemon games that he has played. He also said that the Pokemon are easier to find in this game. We got a really good deal using ebay!
Just what I ordered, in great shape. Attention to quality control is apparent.
I got it pretty quick, about a week after I ordered. It was in good shape, in a little protective case. There was a save file with the character's name as "test" proving the game had been tested before sending it out which I love. Condition of the cartridge itself and the stickers on it is great, works just as ordered.
