Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Launching Nov. 21

The  Pokémon Company has revealed the release date for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, the upcoming Nintendo 3DS re-imaginings of the popular Gameboy Advance Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon  Sapphire. Coming Nov. 21, it’s just at the right time to get yourself an early Christmas present.

The  Pokémon Company has also named the two Pokémon that appear on the covers of the game. Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre.

“These two extremely powerful Pokémon clashed in an epic battle that once sent Groudon into a long slumber within the magma beneath the planet’s crust and drove Kyogre into a deep sleep at the bottom of the ocean floor. The awesome transformation is a result of Primal Reversion, when Groudon and Kyogre reclaim their original power from nature’s energy and obtain even greater power than they already have. The power within Primal Reversion is still being discovered, as well as what connection may lie between Primal Reversion and Mega Evolution,” according to a press release.

The full press release follows:

 BELLEVUE, WA—June 10, 2014The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced today that the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire video games will launch in the United States on Friday, November 21, 2014, exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Pokémon fans will collect, battle, and trade Pokémon as they travel throughout the rich natural beauty of the Hoenn region.

Also confirmed today is that the Pokémon featured on the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire game packages are in fact Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre, a newly revealed transformation of the Legendary Pokémon Groudon and Kyogre. These two extremely powerful Pokémon clashed in an epic battle that once sent Groudon into a long slumber within the magma beneath the planet’s crust and drove Kyogre into a deep sleep at the bottom of the ocean floor. The awesome transformation is a result of Primal Reversion, when Groudon and Kyogre reclaim their original power from nature’s energy and obtain even greater power than they already have. The power within Primal Reversion is still being discovered, as well as what connection may lie between Primal Reversion and Mega Evolution.

More details about Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre:

  • Primal Groudon is brimming with energy, which pours from its body as magma. The magma burns at such an extreme temperature that its body is always shimmering ruby red from the haze of its heat, giving off light in the darkness. Through Primal Reversion, Primal Groudon becomes much larger and adds Fire type to its Ground type, raising the power of Fire-type moves it can learn. Primal Reversion greatly boosts Primal Groudon’s Attack. Its Ability may get a boost during this epic transformation, too.
  • Primal Kyogre, a Water-type Pokémon, is awash with energy that spills from its body as seawater. Its blue skin shines like a sapphire and is half-translucent like the sea. Primal Reversion greatly boosts Primal Kyogre’s Special Attack. Its Ability also seems to get a boost, although this information cannot yet be confirmed. Primal Kyogre is massive, growing to be more than twice Kyogre’s size.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire will explore the mystery of Mega Evolution even further, a powerful Evolution that only occurs to some Pokémon during battle. For Mega Evolution to take place, Trainers need a Key Stone to resonate with a Mega Stone held by a Pokémon during battle. Twenty-eight Mega Stones have been identified since they were introduced in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, but it is said there are still more Mega Stones to be discovered in the Hoenn region.
