Read a Kidzworld video game review for Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire for Nintendo Gameboy Advance!

You've just arrived at your new home in Littleroot Town and the first thing you want to do is visit noted Pokemon researcher Professor Birch. You find him being attacked by wild Pokemon. Borrowing a Pokemon from Professor Birch, you defeat the Wild Pokemon. (Choose wisely because that Pokemon becomes yours!) And so your adventure begins.

Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire Game Graphics

Unfortunately, the adventures on Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance aren't that much different from Pokemon Crystal. While other games for the GBA offer way-cool graphics, Pokemon is still living in a Tamagotchi world. The characters, and their actions, are rigid - to say the least.

    1There are changes! It rocks. The only thing that sucks about it is that you can't go to Joto or Kanto.

    1Compared to my Crystal version, the words look nicer and it's perfect! No mispelling either. I love the Secret Hideouts, and Pokeblocks too!
