Pokemon Box: Ruby and Sapphire, or simply Pokemon Box, is a spin-off Pokemon game for the Nintendo GameCube console, bundled with a Nintendo GameCube - Game Boy Advance link cable and a Memory Card 59. It was released in Japan on May 30, 2003 and in North America on July 11, 2004, but only through the New York Pokemon Center and its online store. It is no longer available in either location. The game was released in some parts of Europe as Pokemon Memory Magic due to translation problems, and Europeans only could get the game by using points from Nintendo of Europe's loyalty program, or by buying the Pokemon Colosseum Mega Pack. The game is essentially a storage system for the Game Boy Advance Pokemon games that allows players to trade and store Pokemon that they have caught in Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed, and LeafGreen onto a GameCube memory card. Players can then organize and interact with their Pokemon on the GameCube, such as allowing them to breed. Unique Pokemon can also be acquired. Another feature allows the games to be played on the television via the GameCube Game Boy Advance Cable. Options such as taking screenshots of the game are available in this mode. Another addition is the "Showcase", where players can create and display game pieces of Pokemon.
