Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire Version - Part 1 (GBA)
Littleroot Town, Rustboro City, Route 104
Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire is the third instalment in the major line of Pokémon games and released on the Game Boy Advance in 2003. It was the first Pokémon game to come to the Game Boy Advance and featured many new gameplay elements including Double Battles, Pokémon Natures and Abilities.
This first location in any Pokémon adventure always features a very light, warm-hearted theme track to give that homely-feel. It always reminds players of their initial moments, especially after returning to the location after journeying through most of the game.
Rustboro City has a very charming theme that begins to show players a larger world past their hometown. The town features the games first Gym.
Route 104 is one of the games early travel areas that connect the towns and special locations of the Hoenn region. It has a slight marching feel, giving that early momentum to the player.
