Lots of Updated Stuff

Bad News

Start with the the recent Famitsu (a japanese gaming magazine), Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire earnt a whopping 34/40. Just below what green and gold got when they first arrive (and standards have gone up since then)

Onto the bad news, famitsu mentioned that there are no more new types in Ruby and Sapphire. A Dissappointment for some, but hope for others for more type development in under-utilised types
