Embark on a new adventure and encounter Deoxys in the Delta Episode
Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire introduce a new story, the Delta Episode, which reveals the history of the Hoenn region and thrusts Trainers into a quest to save the world. The Mossdeep Space Center, a research facility for studying space and rocket science, discovers that a giant asteroid is hurtling toward the planet. Trainers must stop Team Magma and Team Aqua from attacking the facility. Meanwhile, a battle in space is brewing between the Sky High Pokémon Rayquaza and the DNA Pokémon Deoxys, a powerful Pokémon that can transform between four distinct Formes: Normal Forme, Attack Forme, Defense Forme, and Speed Forme. Rayquaza faces a fateful challenge that will determine the future of Hoenn.
Helping Trainers restore peace to the Hoenn region are Sootopolis City¹s Gym Leader, Wallace, and the Hoenn region¹s Champion, Steven, both of whom hold secrets to stopping the asteroid. Trainers will also meet Zinnia, a mysterious girl rumored to possess the key to the fate of the world. Zinnia wears a Mega Anklet set with one of the mysterious Key Stones, which allows her Salamence to Mega Evolve.
Encounter Legendary Pokémon Latias and Latios with an Eon Ticket
To catch the Legendary Pokémon Latias in Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Latios in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Trainers must first reach the Southern Island by acquiring and using an Eon Ticket. Eon Tickets will be distributed via the Mystery Gift function on the title menu. Codes for the Eon Ticket will be provided to Play! Pokémon organizers and North American StreetPass communities and will be active on November 21. Once a Trainer redeems an Eon Ticket in the game, the ticket can be shared with other players by activating StreetPass on BuzzNav.
Search for Legendary Pokémon in Mirage spots
Legendary Pokémon found in previous Pokémon video games will return in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire through mysterious Mirage spots appearing around Hoenn. While exploring Mirage spots with Soar, Trainers can battle and catch an array of powerful Legendary Pokémon, including Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Uxie, Mesprit, Azelf, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus, Cresselia, and Heatran. Encounters with Legendary Pokémon found in Mirage spots will vary based on which game is being played.
Decipher ancient codes to encounter Legendary titans Regirock, Regice, and Registeel
Mirage spots are not the only place where Trainers can encounter Legendary Pokémon. Regirock, Regice, and Registeel, the Legendary titans of the Hoenn region, make their return in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. They can be encountered after Trainers decipher ancient messages scattered throughout the region. After catching all three of these titans and meeting other special conditions, Trainers can encounter and catch the powerful Colossal Pokémon Regigigas, said to be the creator of the Legendary trio.
Send a Pokémon obtained in the Special Demo Version to the full game
Trainers can obtain a powerful Pokémon in the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version and send it to their full Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire game via Pokémon Link: Glalie, an Ice-type Pokémon that can Mega Evolve into the menacing Mega Glalie. Trainers can likewise send the Mythical Pokémon Diancie, which can be obtained via a code card from participating GameStop stores, from Pokémon X and Pokémon Y to Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
Discover more fun at the Pokémon Global Link
Poké Miles and Medals earned in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y as well as Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire will allow Trainers to play Mine Cart Adventure, a new PGL attraction that debuts in concert with Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
