Pokémon Sapphire: A 10th Anniversary Love Letter

This week marks Pokémon Sapphire's 10th anniversary: Jack Bromley discusses his personal experiences with the game, and how it will always have a place in his heart...

"I grabbed the newly-released Pokémon Sapphire, preferring the cover’s vibrant blue Kyogre over the grubby red Groudon. “This one!” And that one I got."

"Every lunchbreak the Playground Posse fed my obsession with techniques, ‘secrets’, and unsubstantiated rumours; most of which the gullible bambinos of Class 5A would rush home to test. I gave myself sore thumbs thrashing A+B simultaneously, believing earnest promises that it would ease a capture." (Nintendo DS, Pokemon, Retro, Tag Invalid)
