Pokemon Box: Ruby & Sapphire
Adventure ModeWant to play Ruby or Sapphire on your TV but have no Gameboy Player? Well POKeMON Box's adventure mode is just what you need!
Just follow the on-screen instructions and soon you'll be saving on batteries heh. There are some differences from the Gameboy Player however.
Sadly POKeMON Fire Red and Leaf Green cannot be used in conjunction with the Adventure mode. It's still a worthy feature, but there is a reason Ruby & Sapphire is in the title.
You can't change the screen size to full-screen nor can you change the background images. Also you must keep your GBA and game linked to the Gamecube the whole time you play even though you can turn the GBA's power off.
One last thing is the ability to take an in-game snapshot of the screen or battle you're currently on. Only one snapshot can be saved at a time however and will be sent to the Special My Wallpaper section in Box mode. You can then use that picture as a wallpaper background for your storage boxes!
Box ModeThe POKeMON PC storage system made by Lanette has been updated by her older sister Brigette and is now available for all trainers to use!
There are 25 boxes to use and each can hold 60 POKeMON or POKeMON eggs. Like Lanette's PC system you can change the wallpaper, mark your POKeMON, check their summarys, and more easily arrange them.
Once you upload them to Box and quit you're able to switch game paks and start Box back up. From there you can send them down to the other game! Makes for an easier and faster method of trading!
A new thing is the option to view a list of them similar to the kind introduced in POKeMON Stadium. You can have them listed by alphabetical order, POKeDEX number, species, etc. Their stats are easily viewable as are their natures, abilities, amount of ribbons, all that good stuff. It's also a good way to check how many POKeMON you have in total!
By the way don't think you'll have to move each and every PKMN one by one to and from Box. By holding in the A button and dragging the cursor along you can easily select anywhere from 2 to all of the POKeMON in a box. Then release the A button and all of the ones you highlighted will be moved to wherever you want in one shot.
The new options and ease of use make this a pleasurable update to the R/S PC system.
But in order to access this in Ruby, Sapphire, Fire Red, or Leaf Green, you'll need to have registered at least 100 POKeMON in your POKeDEX. Also, until you get the National POKeDEX in Fire Red & Leaf Green, you cannot transfer any POKeMON besides the original 151 from Box to those versions.
Free Eggs!To reward you for being a total POKeFreak you can acquire up to 4 eggs by filling up the storage boxes. These eggs contain POKeMON with an attack they can't normally learn. Simply drag them into your Ruby or Sapphire games and hatch them like any other.
#1 - Swablu w/False Swipe
You get this egg right from the start! How nice!
#2 - Zigzagoon w/Extremespeed
This egg is obtained after placing at least 60 POKeMON into Box.
#3 - Skitty w/Pay Day
Wow Pay Day! A move totally unavailable until Fire Red & Leaf Green are released! You can get in on this attack early by placing 500 or more POKeMON into the storages boxes.
#4 - Pichu w/Surf
Remember Surfing Pikachu first made available in POKeMON Stadium? Well you can have it back after evolving this Pichu! The thing is, you'll need to fill a whopping 1499(!) spots in the boxes.
