"Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire were respectively the land and water based counterparts of Pokémon’s third generation. They had us explore the region of Hoenn: the most waterlogged location in the world of Pokémon to date. Their respective legendary Pokémon, Groudon and Kyogre, were given a larger role in the plot than the legendaries of the previous instalments.
For the first time, the game’s plot was affected by the copy of the game being played, giving either Groudon or Kyogre a pivotal role in the story. Ten years have passed since then, and the new features added with each generation have slotted perfectly into the re-created world, adding depth to the already existing without distracting from the original."
