I played the original GBA version of Sapphire and playing it on 3DS made me remember how great this game is. The plot is actually quite "developed" (compared to other pokemon games I have played so far) and it also has the newly add features that you have seen from X and Y. However, I was kind of sad that you can't dress up your characters but, other than that it is worth the buy. Also, it literally took 3-4 days for it to arrive at my house. I was very surprised.
