I played this game for 3 days solid. Respectable pokedex (95). Maybe its the repetetiveness or the insance encounter rates, but this is just lacking the fill. Before when you beat the game, you got to go catch mewtwo, when you beat this one, you go to a tower (You are going to have to look it up to find any of the rare pokemon besides the one on the box). It just has this commercial sense that they want you buy the strategy guide with it. I went through the whole game not know what the heck a pokeblock was, never phased me a bit. And from what I understand, they serve no real purpose. This isn't a real upgrade, just more an expansion to R/B/G/S and a timekiller to say the least. Id get firered or leafgreen if i wanted a remake (which i do), but get Diamond or Pearl if you have a DS
The copy of Pokemon: Ruby that I got froze in the middle of game play and you would have to turn off your system and start over again from your last save. The game itself is good, my complaint is the copy of the game that I got was broken.
