Ruby, Sapphire & Emerald Other Pages: First Ever Commerical |
On the 9th November 2002, (probably a significant date for British Nazis), the first "proper" advert in Japan for Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. Here's our frame-by-frame guide to the advert. We're guessing that the time in the corner (7:58) is because it was shown on breakfast TV.

Something Game Boy Advance is happening! But what?!

Hmm- some kids in a forest...

A hole in the ground with light shining in- this can only be one thing- the second coming of Jesus!

"Huh, whatever could that be? Is it Jesus!?"

Ah, crikey! Its Pokémon RS! But a lovely screenshot. Its a huge cave complex- is our hero walking on ice or is the ground colour obscured by the camera glare or something. This could be further proof of the weather effects due to Snow, maybe.

At attack being used. We've no idea what it is but if someone can translate the text on the shot, it'd be appreciated.

A nice shadow effect demonstrates what could be linked to the original bridge screenshot which launched the frenzy that is pre-RS-things.

Don't worry, this amazing looking animation won't be in the games- its all promotional things.

Tell me that isn't the coolest thing you've seen in ages. Unless you've seen a picture of Psythor, that is.

Cut back to the kids and the advert tells you when RS is out, what console its on, and what the time is.

It just makes you want to buy it even more. How awful.
