There's not really much to say here that I didn't say in the previous commentary. Though, now that I think about it, shouldn't the pokédex have a backlit screen? Actually, let's see here. Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire was released on the Gameboy Advance, the original version of which did not have a backlit screen. The GBA SP did, but it wasn't released until afterwards (a few months after the R/S's Japanese launch, and a few days after its US launch). So, with that in mind, I suppose that the gen 3 pokédex probably didn't have a backlit screen. And that was probably really over thinking things. Then again, considering everything has a backlit screen these days, maybe not.
