Changes

Generation III

161 bytes added, 3 March
Major alterations from Generation II
* An overhaul of the [[Berry]] system introduced in Generation II: old Berries rejected in favor of Berries which grow individually as plants and can be picked and planted elsewhere. The Berries are now named after real life fruits instead of their "basic" names from the previous generation. The effects of the first ten new Berries are similar to the ten Generation II Berries.
* Each Pokémon has its own status screen sprite, for ease of use in the party screen or PC.
* The function of the [[time|built-in clock]] was greatly reduced. There are no cosmetic changes during different times of day and Pokémon appearances are not affected by time. Also, the day of the week is no longer tracked.:
** In {{2v2|Ruby|Sapphire}}, there are no cosmetic changes during different times of day and Pokémon appearances are not affected by time. Also, the day of the week is no longer tracked. The only features that depend on the time of the day are {{p|Eevee}}'s [[friendship]]-based evolutions and tides in [[Shoal Cave]].
** {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}} have no built-in clock at all.
* The seven [[Poké Ball]]s made from [[Apricorn]]s, along with Apricorns themselves, are unavailable in Generation III.
