Game Overview

Pokémon Box: Ruby and Sapphire is a spin-off Pokémon game for the Nintendo GameCube that was bundled with a Nintendo GameCube Game Boy Advance Cable and a Memory Card 59. 

The game was a storage system for the Game Boy Advance Pokémon games, which allowed players to trade and store Pokémon they have caught in Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed, and LeafGreen onto a GameCube memory card. The players can then organize and interact with their Pokémon on the GameCube, such as allowing them to breed to create unique Pokémon.

I found this info about the

In Pokemon Box, you
can store up to 1500 pokemon, view your
Pokemon's stats, and view your Pokemon
pieces. This is more of an "expansion"
disc for the new Ruby/Sapphire versions
of the game, rather than a whole new
game itself. You can transfer monsters
from any of the Pokemon games on Gameboy
including Pokemon Blue, Pokemon Red,
Green, Crystal, Ruby, etc. A GBA link
cable is required.

Wrong. This was released in Europe and
USA as well.
But there's something
strange, in Wikipedia it says: "The
game was released in Europe as Pokémon
Memory Magic due to translation
problems, and Europeans only could get
the game by using points from Nintendo
of Europe's loyalty program, or by
buying the Pokémon Colosseum Mega
Pak.", but i remember seeing it on sale
several times in stores... and i
remember as well that it was named
"Pokémon Box: Ruby & Sapphire" (and
yes, i live in Europe).
