100 Rupee Advance Shop
From Zelda Legends Wiki
A special shop that will only be open when you play on a GBA. Also called the Advance Shop in short.
DescriptionLynna Village in the Past, next to the Shooting Gallery. The other in OoS is on the left of the “know-it-all-birds” hut on the west side of Horon Village.
Inside you can find a shopkeeper who sells you one Gasha Seed and two rings all for 100 rupees each. In the Oracle of Ages one ring is the GBA Time Ring and in Oracle of Seasons one of the two rings is the GBA Nature Ring. The second is any randomly selected common ring.
The Oracle of Seasons’ Advance Shop also has a little boy inside who will tell you about his life has been ‘advanced’. The Linked game of the Oracle of Ages will have Nayru and Impa outside the shop at the end of the game, waiting for you to beat Ganon.

From the shopkeeper inside:
”Welcome, sir... to the 100 Rupee Advance Shop. I'm amazed you found us! We're only found on Game Boy Advance! Everything is 100 Rupees. Don't let our secret out!”
|Japanese||... ショップアドバンス ('... SHOPPU ADOBANSU')|
|English||100 Rupee Advance Shop|
|French||Boutique 100 Rubis|
|Spanish||Todo a 100 para Advance|
|Italian||Advance Shop delle 100 rupie|
The translations are quite close to the original, except for the Spanish. Japanese people don't really have an letter ‘v’ therefore it is mostly replaced with a ‘b’, hence the shop was named Shoppu Adobansu.
The Spanish translation is really special. A "Todo a 100" is a shop where (in Spain) you could buy things for just 100 pesetas (the Spanish old currency, 100 pts is about 0.72$). Although Spain changed from pesetas to euros, the shops remained with the same name (although more expensive). The translator felt necessary to call the 100 Rupee Advance Shop like those Spanish shops, so the only change to the name was to add the word Advance, without mentioning the Rupees
