I haven't really gotten into Kingdom Hearts that much, I played the Disney game a time ago and lost the game cartridge >.<
I'm hoping I can put aside Skyward Sword for awhile so I can start to get into Kingdom Hearts xD
Hmm...I'm not sure I know the difference. I'm basing things off the events of the gameverse...mostly. Definitely not the anime (I'm guessing, I haven't watched the series since around 2001). I mean, there certainly is the Elite 4, and they'll have roles to play...I guess it's more like a tournament though.
Sootopolis might have been rebuilt, since it has the physical structure still relatively stable. Pacifidlog was totally washed away. Lavaridge would be different, especially with an active volcano. They might have rebuilt somewhere, but I hadn't given that too much thought.
It's been a while. Hoenn's events were (game-wise) 3 years before Gen 4. Which was...some years before the start of the RPG. So there's been some rebuilding, but it's hard to rebuild a town covered in lava or totally washed away. They would have relocated anywhere they could, not everyone would have gone to the same place.
Really? Sapphire's boxart is indeed nice, the reason I chose it over Ruby. I wasn't a fan of a glaring, red dino on a glaring, red box. Blue-on-blue looked so much cooler. XD I still have my Sapphire up to now, translucent blue cartridge and all.XD
