Pinball: Ruby and Sapphire
Release Date: Japan August 1st, 2003, United States August 28th, 2003, Europe November 14th, 2003.
At E3 Nintendo revealed the follow-up to Pokemon Pinball, Pokemon Pinball: Ruby and Sapphire. In the game there are two new tables that are similar looking to Ruby/Sapphire. There is a considerable amount of mini games to find; now more than 200 Pokemon to be caught in the game. Another new feature is if you play the game on the Game Cube Game Boy Player with the Game cube Controller the controller will vibrate when the ball comes in contact with any part of the board. Otherwise, the game is very similar to the original Pokemon Pinball; you hit the ball, score point, scare the Pokemon out into the open, catch them, evolve them, and record them in your Pokedex.

Catching a Pokemon
You must be in Catch`em Mode to catch a Pokemon. The ball must go through the Loop on either board at least 2 times, and the letters G and E must be lit. The ball must be then shot into Sharpedo or Wailmers mouth depending on which board you are on to start Catch em. A shadow of a pokemon will appear and then you must proceed to hit the Chinchou or Lotad or Shroomish bumpers to break the shadow apart. After the Pokemon appears, you must hit it with your Pokeball three times to catch it within the 2 minute time limit.
Evolving a Pokemon
You must be in EVO Mode to evolve a Pokemon. Your ball must go though the left loops on the board three times. The mart will change to an evolution gate, and after shooting your ball into it you will be given a menu to choose which Pokemon you want to evolve. You will have two minutes to get the necessary items to evolve your Pokemon (EX; Experience Points, Heart; Happiness, Cable; Trading, Grass Stone, Water Stone, Fire Stone, Link Cable), when all the items are acquired shoot your ball into the hole in the center of the field and it will evolve.
Hatching and Catching a Pokemon

You must be in Travel Mode to Travel. In Ruby you first hit Chikorita, then Linoone, then Gulpin, and when three appear you start Travel Mode. You must knock the ball though the left or right hoop and put the ball into the Center Hole. You get one minute in travel mode and you are put in different areas to catch Pokemon.
