Not to be confused with: Battle! (Wild Pokémon) - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire (May 30, 2016).

"Battle! (Wild Pokémon) - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire" is a high quality rip of "Battle! (Wild Pokémon)" from the games Pokémon Ruby Version and Pokémon Sapphire Version.

Jokes Edit

This rip features "Meet the Flintstones" with the Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire soundfont instead of the Wild Pokémon battle theme. The video also switches to an enlarged picture of Grand Dad.

In the SiIvaGunner reupload, a sample of "op" from "Gangnam Style" is at the very end of the video.

History Edit

This rip was originally uploaded on the GiIvaSunner channel on January 9, 2016 under the title "Wild Pokémon Battle - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire".[1][2][3] It is the very first high quality rip ever.

According to Chaze the Chat, he created the rip a few days prior, around January 2, 2016.[4] He says he was inspired by a remix by toonlink, which would be later reworked into the A Secret Course (Anniversary Edition) - Super Mario Sunshine rip.[5]

Despite being one of the most popular and iconic rips, it wasn't reuploaded to SiIvaGunner's channel during the first wave of reuploads in April-May 2016. This was acknowledged by SiIvaGunner, who trolled the fans that waited for this rip by uploading a parody rip called "Battle! (Wild Pokémon) - Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire" on May 30, 2016.

Finally, on June 12, 2016, this rip was reuploaded under the title "Battle! (Wild Pokémon) - Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire".[6] As with some other Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire rips, the "and" in the title was later changed to "&" at an unknown date.

The rip was reuploaded again to SiIvaGunner2 on January 9, 2019 followed by many others. It does not feature the "op" or the image change.[7]

Trivia Edit

  • This rip is the first appearance of "Meet the Flintstones" and Grand Dad. It's also the first melody change rip.
  • Several of the earliest GiIvaSunner rips featured the background image changing with the melody, from the appropriate game logo to a picture related to the rip's joke. This rip is the only one that retained that feature after being reuploaded to the SiIvaGunner channel, most likely due to its important place in SiIvaGunner history.
  • Until March 30, 2017, this rip was credited in Volume 1 to "Barney Rubble" because it would've revealed who had made the first rip for the channel.
  • This was the first (technically second, after The Dark World - The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past was uploaded as a test) rip re-uploaded to SiIvaGunner2. It was re-uploaded on January 9, 2019, its three-year anniversary.

  5. the nutshack theme but the first nutshack is replaced with me ending the channel: For the Pokémon one I was inspired by, um, toonlink made -- he made a S-Super Mario Sunshine "Secret Course" "Megalovania" thing, and... it was cool because it was cool because it changed the melody of the song, and it wasn't exactly a mashup, but it was, like, a kind of a hybrid between a remix and a mashup, and I was like, "This is really cool."
