ゲームボーイアドバンス Game Boy Advance
A Game Boy Advance
The Game Boy Advance (Japanese: ゲームボーイアドバンス Game Boy Advance) is Nintendo's 32-bit handheld gaming system that surpassed the Nintendo Game Boy Color. The Game Boy Advance was released in 2001. Not only did it look dramatically different (a semi trapezoidal shape compared to the rectangle shape of the original Game Boy and Game Boy Color), but it also contained a powerful processor, allowing it to display SNES-caliber graphics and even play voices. The Game Boy Advance was also capable of interaction with the Nintendo GameCube.

Latias and Latios Game Boy Advance
