Product Description
Great graphics and support for two-on-two Pokmon battles are just some of the exciting innovations in Pokmon Ruby and Pokmon Sapphire, the first Pokmon games exclusively for the Game Boy Advance. Double Your Fun The biggest gameplay breakthrough announced so far is support for trainers to take two Pokmon into battle instead of just one. Since each Pokmon offers a unique combination of strengths and weaknesses,
Pokémon Ruby's updated graphics with weather effects, amazing sound, more than 200 Pokémon with over 100 new species--as well as its faithful adherence to the existing series of Pokémon games--makes for a welcome evolution in the series.

First, the game has a lot in common with Pokémon games Silver, Gold, and Crystal. For example, players can choose to be a boy or a girl trainer, an internal clock sets events at certain times, and you’re the game's handy-dandy Pokédex helps players keep track of the many stats. You're main goal is still to beat all the Gym Trainers and become the Pokémon Master. If you've played the old games, you will be right at home. But not all is the same.

The most obvious change is in the battles themselves. Now that two Pokémon can fight on your side at the same time, you can tag-team them against an enemy by taking advantage of the strengths of your Pokémons while covering their weaknesses. For example, you can now have a water Pokémon watch your fire Pokémon's back. You can also attack more than one Pokémon at a time.

A whole new element to the game focuses on how berries are used in battle. And if you collect enough berries, you can take them to a Berry Blender and make a PokéBlock, which is a little super-charged candy that raises your Pokémon's "Condition" attributes. You can then groom your Pokémon for regional contests and compete for ribbons like "Best of Show," which will unlock additional contests. There's even strategy in how to best use your berries: pick too many and the berry tree will disappear; plant berries, though, and a tree will grow. You can also build a Secret Base in special areas of the game, which you can decorate just like you can your room.

And let us not forget that Pokémon Ruby has a kickin' multiplayer system, too. You can trade Pokémon, and link up to four players for incredible battles. The only downside is that you can't link up with the old Game Boy Color games. --Bryan Karsh


  • You can control two Pokémon in battle
  • Much needed graphic and sound facelift
  • Nice multiplayer feature (requires link cable and extra game cartridge)
  • Can't trade Pokémon with Game Boy Color

5Really cool, Apr 17, 2023
I'm 12, and this game is cool. It takes a while, and can be frustrating at times, but I would suggest you buy it. Anyone ages 6-14 would probably like it, even if they don't like pokemon. I don't like pokemon, but I still think this game is cool.

5Lone Drifter, Mar 31, 2023
This game has enough reviews,
I am sure that if you read some you might get a good Idea.
Anyway that's not the problem we need people who KNOW STRATEGY
Got it?
after all no one here is seeming to write much about this.
Don't know that? Get ready to learn more.
Now you know how to actually SPELL DEOXYS CORRECTLY.
Come on guys I know your'e not stupid. "Deoxis" what the heck?
Combos..Extremely easy to understand.
Basic data...This is only very basic stuff.
I know much more than this...
This info can help you in the battle tower.
Oh yeah and contests...
This concludes my guide.
And if you are stupid the above Htmls are supposed to be written in the URL bar above or, if you are three the "search bar".
