StrategyWiki has more about this subject:

Pokémon Box Ruby & Sapphire (Japanese: ポケモンボックス ルビー&サファイア Pokémon Box Ruby & Sapphire), translated as Pokémon Memory Magic in some parts of Europe[4], is a Nintendo GameCube product released May 30th, 2003 in Japan and in North America on July 11th, 2004. In North America, however, it was only available at the Pokémon Center in New York City. Pokémon Box itself is not so much a game as it is a storage unit for Trainers' Pokémon.

European gamers were able to purchase the game with a GameCube Bundle which included Pokémon Colosseum, a memory card, and a GameCube link cable. There were also a limited amount of Pokémon Box games available online at the Stars Catalogue on the official Nintendo of Europe website.

Features

Trainers can store up to 1500 Pokémon in twenty-five boxes that hold sixty Pokémon and trade between Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, as well as FireRed and LeafGreen. All of the Pokémon can be stored on a GameCube memory card, requiring 59 blocks for save data. A special edition Ruby and Sapphire Memory Card 59 is included with the game for players to use.

The host of the game, Brigette, is the creator of the mass storage system, and is the sister of Lanette, who developed the standard storage system along with Bill.

The game also comes with a GameCube-to-Game Boy Advance link cable, which allows Trainers to deposit Pokémon from their GBA game to Box without the need to trade.

Once a Pokémon is in a box, Trainers can examine the stats of their Pokémon and, using the "Go to List" option, open a spreadsheet style graph with numerous categories such as original Trainer, moves, Pokémon Contests stats, friendliness, and level. This is similar to the List view found in Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Stadium 2 when using the box feature found within both of those games.

Players may also display their Pokémon using the "Showcase" option from the main menu in Brigette's Room. This feature allows players to create a stage from a combination of ten backgrounds, ten stage patterns, and five types of display pieces. They are also able to choose from one of eight music tracks, all of which have been remixed or ported from Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. However, this view is only for show, and does not display any statistics about the Pokémon that are being displayed.

Please note, however, certain conditions in each game must be met before Pokémon Box can be fully utilized.

In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire

  • Players must have received the Pokédex from Professor Birch before they can deposit their Pokémon.
  • Players must have 100 Pokémon caught in the Pokédex before they can withdraw any Pokémon which they did not deposit.

In Pokémon Emerald

  • Players must have Hall of Fame data and must have received the National Pokédex before they can deposit their Pokémon.
  • Players must have 100 Pokémon caught in the Pokédex before they can withdraw any Pokémon which they did not deposit.

In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen

  • Players must have finished the Sevii Islands quest and activated trades with Hoenn-based games with the Ruby and Sapphire before they can deposit or withdraw any Pokémon.
  • Players must have 100 Pokémon caught in the Pokédex before they can withdraw any Pokémon which they did not deposit.

Bonus Eggs

When a certain amount of Pokémon are deposited from a game cartridge, a Pokémon Egg is deposited in box. The Pokémon that hatches will know a special move that it would not learn normally and can not be passed down through breeding. It is important to note that these Pokémon do not all need to have the same original Trainer ID number, but must be transferred from the same game cartridge into Pokémon Box. This means that, in cases where a player has access to multiple games, all of the Pokémon can be transferred to one, then moved into Box. The Pokémon that are available from the special Eggs are:

Emulation

Aside from being a storage device, Pokémon Box can be used to play Ruby or Sapphire on a television without the Game Boy Player. Only those two versions (but not FireRed, LeafGreen, and Emerald) can be played and the storage system on the memory card cannot be accessed via the in-game PC, just the game cartridge's boxes. In this way, it is much like the Game Boy Tower of Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Stadium 2. Players can access this feature by choosing the option "Go to Adventure" from the title menu. This is currently the only official way to play any hand held version of Pokémon on the Wii.
