- For the original rip with the same name that this rip parodies, see Battle! (Wild Pokémon) - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire
"Battle! (Wild Pokémon)" is a high quality rip from the game Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire.
This rip is a parody of Battle! (Wild Pokémon) - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire, which was the first rip on the original GiIvaSunner channel.
It starts the exact same way, including the melody change to "Meet the Flintstones" and a blurry blown up picture of Grand Dad. However, at 0:17 the melody unexpectedly changes to "Snow halation", and the video switches to a white screen with a smol picture of Smol Nozomi in the middle. The music ends at 0:52, and after some silence, at 1:00 we can hear Loud Nigra saying "God... dammit!"
To fully understand the impact of this rip, one should consider the context of the SiIvaGunner channel history. Since "Battle! (Wild Pokémon) - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire" was the first rip uploaded to the original channel, it was always considered an important rip among fans of the channel. After the GiIvaSunner channel got reborn as SiIvaGunner, a lot of GiIvaSunner rips were reposted on the new channel throughout April and May of 2016. However, for some reason, "Battle! (Wild Pokémon) - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire" wasn't re-uploaded. This obviously frustrated some long-time fans who wanted to hear the rip again and thought it deserved to be re-uploaded. Instead, what they got was this rip. While most high quality rips are intended to bait-and-switch people who don't know about SiIvaGunner and expect actual video game music, this rip goes meta and tricks SiIvaGunner fans by ripping a popular rip.
The actual "Battle! (Wild Pokémon) - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire" rip finally got reuploaded almost 2 weeks later, on June 12, 2016.
This rip was originally uploaded under the title Battle! (Wild Pokémon) - Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. As with some other Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire rips, the "and" in the title was later changed to "&" at an unknown date.
- The SilvaGunner: Rebooted rip Battle! (Wild Pokémon) (Beta Mix) - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire seems to be a parallel universe version of this rip rather than "Battle! (Wild Pokémon) - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire", since it features The Simpsons (a parallel of "Meet the Flintstones"), "GO MY WAY!!" (a parallel of "Snow halation"), and Howie scream (a parallel of Loud Nigra).
- This is most likely the only example of two SiIvaGunner rips sharing the exact same title without being tied to an event (like Groundhog Day), one of the rips getting renamed later, or one of the rips getting unlisted.
