Product Details:

Start your adventure on Pokemon Ruby and receive one of 3 basic Pokemon from the professor. Journey through Hoenn gaining knowledge and training your Pokemon and earning badges with the goal of becoming a Pokemon Master through collecting, battling & trading.

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 exclusively for the Game Boy Advance.
Double Your Fun
The biggest gameplay breakthrough announced so far is support for trainers to 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.

Looking Very Nice, Thank You
The Pokémon epic makes a great graphical leap forward with Ruby and Sapphire. It's as if the developers have been biding their time, waiting for a system with the processing muscle of the Game Boy Advance.

In the battle scenes, a rich palette and subtle shading givesboth thetrainer andthe Pokémon themselves a breathtaking degree of realism. 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. You can almost see the individual tiles on the roofs!

New Pokémon
Nintendo also announces the Japanese names and stats of three of the games' new Pokémon: Pelipper, a "Water Bird Pokémon" that looks much like a pelican; Samehader, a shark-like "Ferocious Pokémon," and Kinococo, a grumpy-looking "Mushroom Pokémon."

* More sophisticated graphics on Game Boy Advance

* more varied game play, and more than 100 new characters!

* The games include two-on-two battle capabilities and a variety of battle modes. One player can take on two Pokémon simultaneously, and using a Game Boy Advance Game Link Cable, two players can control two Pokemon each, or four players can play one each, providing deeper and more strategic game play.
