The originals were released in 2002 in Japan and 2003 everywhere else and quickly climbed the charts to become the top game of the year. The titles still hold the record for number-one Game Boy Advance game of all time.

You take on the role of a trainer and work your way up through gyms to battle and beat the Pokémon Champion. It was the first title of the series to include the player’s dad, making him the gym leader in a nearby town. A subplot was also present consisting of either Team Magma or Team Aqua, two criminal organizations that wish to use legendary Pokémon to alter the climate.

In recent years, Pokémon has stepped up their game. Last year’s release of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y broke records as the fastest selling 3DS games. The games included customization, mini-games, and many other features fans had patiently been waiting for. Which brings up the question: What new features will be present in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire?

The last remakes released by Nintendo were Heart Gold and Soul Silver that came out in 2010 for the DS. The project showed that the company was capable of staying true to the originals while bringing them into the current generation of gaming that could appeal to fans new and old, leaving Ruby and Sapphire fanatics feeling hopeful.
