    Default Happy birthday Ruby and Sapphire. Over 10 years.

    It is currently November 21st in Japan, which is the day when they were released all the way back in 2002.

    Masuda is tweeting about it. Anyone feel like translating?

    He says that he remembers developing Ruby and Sapphire while knowing that they would be unexpected, since many people had thought that Pokémon was a fad. He's glad that the series is still alive and well ten years later.

    10th anniversary? Woot~!

    Has Nintendo payed attention to Hoenn though? They have a lot of Torchic merchandise but they seem to care about Kanto Pokemon lately. Where's the 10th anniversary stuff?

    There have been event Pokemon released only in Japan to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. Black 2 owners get a Groudon and White 2 owners get a Kyogre. Again, this event is only in Japan so any one outside of Japan won't be getting these event pokemon.

    Happy birthday, Ruby and Sapphire. I still remember going to my local GameStop to pick up the games and getting those coins as a pre-order bonus. I still actually have those coins. It feels weird that these games are ten years old now in Japan. Hopefully, they'll remake the games one day so that people can experience going through Hoenn either all over again or for the first time.

    Happy birthday! This brings back so many memories of my childhood... I remember playing Sapphire on my cousin's old Gameboy SP, so many years ago...

    Happy Birthday Hoenn, playing these games back in Gen 3 were really good times for me, even if the craze kinda faded at the time I really enjoyed the Advanced Generation.

    I'm glad that these games brought a lot of change and innovation as well as keeping the series alive. : )

    Happy birthday, Gen III. At one time, I was upset by some of the changes introduced in this generation, but today, I appreciate how important it was for the series on the whole. The release of Pokemon on a stronger handheld was very exciting, I bought a US version of Pokemon Ruby because I couldn't bear waiting a few extra months for the UK release.

    Who is this git?

    Emerald was my 1st game, but I later got Sapphire and Ruby. Awesome games for the time they were released, still have great stories. As some people said, I'm ready for remakes too.

    People in the U.S. still have that mentality that Pokemon was a fad, and they're getting sick and tired of it being still alive and want it dead like every other fad before it.

    Happy 10th, even if I never got the chance to play them. I played RBY and GSC when they came out though, but didn't come back to the series until HGSS.
