While we’re on the topic of PokÃ©mon, PokÃ©mon Box is one of those games you should know about – because it fetches a nice high price and not many people realize it does.
PokÃ©mon Box: Ruby and Sapphireis a spin-off game for the Nintendo GameCube, bundled with a Game Boy Advance Cable and Memory Card.
It was originally a Japanese release, but was made available in America in 2004. The kicker is that it was only obtainable through the New York PokÃ©mon Center and its online store.
The “game: itself is essentially a storage system for the Game Boy Advance PokÃ©mon games that allows players to trade and store PokÃ©mon that they have caught in Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed, and LeafGreen onto a GameCube memory card. Players can then organize and interact with their PokÃ©mon on the GameCube, such as allowing them to mate. Unique PokÃ©mon 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 PokÃ©mon.
Nintendo itself even referred to the game as “the most exclusive PokÃ©mon software ever offered to North American PokÃ©mon fans,”. Even though the “game” itself is kind of pointless for all but the most hardcore Pokefans.
Prices for this guy is all over the place. Anywhere from $30 to $100 depending on if the box, card or cables are included. Even ones in the same condition with the same level of completeness often sell for varying prices. Either way, it’s a nice one to keep your eyes open for.
