It's basically a very large PC. Yay.

Click.

EDIT: Damn typo in an otherwise perfect post.

I dunno, my hopelessly optimistic interpretation of "a GameCube expansion disk designed to add to your adventures in the Game Boy Advance Ruby & Saphire titles" is "Uiru gets his Butterfree with super-accurate Stun Spore and Sleep Powder". Even if it is just the Pokémon Storage System in GameCube style, remember how insanely useful the labs were in the Stadium games?

Also, look: it's coming with a Mem Card 59 (for about the price of a Mem Card 59). Presumably, this game/app will take a considerable amount of space. What's it saving? 1500 Pokémon. I don't think it takes a third of a kilobyte to store one Pokémon's data. There could very well be something more to this.

Oh, and maybe you haven't noticed, but that's a POKéMON CRYSTAL game pak on one of those screens. Hmm.

Good point Uiru. This may finally be that legit way to import my lovely lovely Snorlax into my Ruby game.

There ain't nothing lovely about Snorlax. [Razz]

The problem with RBYGSC -> RS conversion, though, are the stats. Maybe they'll lop all the Stat EXP off, translate the IVs and let you retrain? Maybe they'll only allow Pokémon with no prior stat EXP? Or perhaps the older games are used simply to unlock new Pokémon in RS. Who knows. Regardless, that's a Crystal game pak on that screenshot, and if the screen was any better I'd be going over that list of Pokémon with a katakana table looking for names that shouldn't be there.

Yeah, I remember how helpful they were for sorting out Pokemon based on stats and determining DVs and all, but my problem with it seems to be JUST a Stadium PC. I was hoping for just a bit more.

And no, I didn't notice it had a Pokemon Crystal Game Pak on one of the screens. Pokemon Box just got more interesting.

If it's as useful as the Poké Lab in PS2, then I'm there.

Linking up with the old versions sounds even better.

Looks to me like its a Crystal Game Pak. The Sapphire Pak is a dark blue colour. In the PS2 PC, the Crystal Pak shows up as a Game Pak with a bright blue sticker on front, similiar to what is shown in the pic. Furthermore, the Game Pak in question is also square shaped, with a square 'indent' in the corner, very similiar to the original Game Boy cartridges. Pokemon Sapphire, being a Game Boy Advance game, would be more likely to show up as a rectangular cartridge, and wouldn't have a corner like that.

But is it possible to have a regular Gameboy cartridge and the GBA-GC link cable on at the same time? I admit that I don't have a GBA-GC link cable, therefore I don't know if it blocks the cartridge slot or not.

But if this turns out to be another Snap game or Hey You, Pikachu, I'm gonna be so pissed.

Yes, you can use GBA-GC Link Cable with an old cartridge. So... perhaps you can use Pokémon Box to arrange your old pokémon in old games, without sending them to RS versions.

It'd seem somewhat silly to store metallics and gematics Pokemon on the same memory card without the ability to interchange them.

Looks to me like Nintendo's leveraging metallics trading to get hapless fans to buy a Cube.

Hmm... if that's the case, I wonder if we'll be able to use old items on new Pokémon. If so, this could be the break we're looking for. Maybe not for R/S items, but at least for R/B/Y/G/S/C.

They didn't really hype it to be the Next Big Thing. It was practically done before it was announced, and they said it wouldn't cost very much.

Yeah, when I heard that it was gonna be real cheap and there'd be two versions, I figured it'd be some sort of expansion for Ru/Sa. I wasn't expecting a PC though, more like maybe playing Ru/Sa in 3-D or something that expanded the gameplay of Ru/Sa like exploring new areas or maybe a way to sail to Kanto or Johto, something to connect the old games with the new ones.

I'm disappointed, but at least it's something, and of course there's that mysterious May announcement, just in time for Pokémon Heroes to come out in theaters.

Okay, here's the best use for this new pokemon box, that kicks the ass.

1. Give all 50 TM's to Zigzagoons or something.
2. Store them in your Pokemon box.
3. Insert second, empty memory card into slot #2.
4. Reset GC and goto main menu.
5. Copy PokeBox data to fresh card.
6. Enjoy all your new TM's [Big Grin]

Hmm... I hope that works. 'Cause if you didn't know, Animal Crossing data can't be copied to other cards for some reason. Nintendo might just be smart enought to implement that sort of lockout for Pokémon.

Nintendo's way ahead of you. Either in the GameCube or Memory Card instruction manuals, it mentions that certain types of save data may not be copyable. I'd imagine this game would have such safeguards.

GBA MegaMem (if/when it exists) could care less whether or not the GCN data is write-protected. 10 minutes for instant 16x replication of anything and everything you could possibly want.

And to get around the GSC/RS conversion conundrum...could I be seeing "Enter the stat quality of this Pokemon (0-31):" ?

Yup. I've got one, it's very sweet...

It would allow you to do this...

*Transfer all 1337 Pokémon to USB memory card
*Backup save file onto your harddrive
*Transfer all pkmn to a friend or back to your GBA
*Restore previous save file to memory card...

You just cloned everything =)

Plus, with hex editing skills, you can edit the save file itself, giving us Jirachi, etc... without gamesharko =)

You'd pay more for a Stadium.

I would like to know if it'll have all the Lab functions, or if it'll just be the PC. I'd love to have the Pokédex location data.

Bad news.

http://www.pokemon.co.jp/game/rubisafa/box.html

Little orange box on the bottom says:

As for this software, it cannot communicate with pocket monster red * green * blue * ピカチュウ * gold & silver * crystal version. In addition, we do not correspond to " the ポケモンスタジアム " series. This software to play, game boy advance itself or the game boy advance SP itself and ' the pocket monster ruby * sapphire ' is necessary.

Well, there goes my 850+ hours of playing Crystal down the toilet.

This fucking BLOWS! What the fuck was the point of playing this game and raising teams just to find out they ain't worth squat in the next game? The thing I really liked about this series was the backwards-compatibility. Being able to start from the original series and upgrading them in the next series. It added longevity and a sense of continuity to the game.

I'm seriously getting fed up with this crap. I am this close to just giving up the game series all together. [Mad]

As for this software, it cannot communicate with pocket monster red * green * blue * ????? * gold & silver * crystal version.

Good.

Well, there goes my 850+ hours of playing Crystal down the toilet.

This fucking BLOWS! What the fuck was the point of playing this game and raising teams just to find out they ain't worth squat in the next game?


Don't be ridiculous. All your Pokemon in Crystal are still just as good as they've always been. And just how many RPG's allow you to carry your characters over to the sequel, anyway?

Exactly.

Still, it would be nice if I could transport my old team to Ruby. Ah well...

I still wanted to see how they'd compare to the new Ru/Sa Pokémon. I WANT MY DAMNED SNORLAX!!

In any case, the whole backwards-compatibility thing was really really appealing to me. I thought for sure that there'd be some way to keep that going. I mean, I thought that the others were still coded into Ru/Sa, right? This still sucks. I wanted to have fun breeding my Crystal Pokémon and having their offspring join up with my Ruby team. I miss my Snorlax! [Frown]

And to answer the other question, Golden Sun. And in a way, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages/Seasons.

The legs and thighs should make up roughly 75% of the entire vertical build of your character. This allows your character to run really fast and wear skirts with a hemline shorter than a pencil eraser. In an ideal world, women would simply be two large eyeballs lumped on top of a couple gigantic breasts resting on 8-foot tall legs. All the other nonessential parts, like the ribcage, arms, and neck, can be safely discarded and used on your next drawing of the uber-demon bent on destroying Neo-Tokyo2.
