Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire
They were both released in the spring of 2003 for the Game Boy Advance. This series of games took place in another part of the Pokémon world called Hoenn. New things about Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire include:
- The player may choose their character's gender in this group (Just like in Pokémon Crystal).
- Pokéblocks, made by cooperation between either NPCs or linked friends, raise certain stats for contests.
- Pokémon Contests, which judge Pokémon based on the Cool, Tough, Cute, Smart, and Beauty stats of a Pokémon and the moves it uses for its appeal.
- The removal of over a hundred old Pokémon from the wild and the addition of an entirely new series of Pokémon. That mass removal led to making Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, which are enhanced remakes of Pokémon Red and Blue.
- Instead of Team Rocket, Team Aqua (in Sapphire) and Magma (in Ruby) are the player's main foes.
- There are several new types of Pokeballs.
- A new "Trainer's key device" called the Pokénav.
- Every Pokémon species now has an innate, special ability.
In Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire, you stop Team Magma or Aqua from awakening Groudon (For Ruby) or Kyogre (From Sapphire) and you have the option of defeating said Legendary or Catching it. The ability to visit the old regions has been removed, and so has the internal clock. This may be to eliminate the possibility of triggering an in-game event that will activate a glitch pokemon, commonly referred to as Missingno.
