Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire
A fine day for Pokémon fans today as Nintendo of Europe has been busy making a few quiet announcements related to the latest games, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
First off Nintendo revealed two new 2DS designs will be making their way to Europe in the form of a transparent Red and a transparent blue console. The two will be sold on their own from the 7th of November and from the 28th of November will also be offered as a bundle with a copy of either Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. The two designs remind us a lot of the transparent cartridges that the original Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire had...
Nintendo also shared details on how they're going to handle the demo for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire in the UK....
It has been confirmed that Pokémon Center stores in Japan will be stocking limited edition New 3DS consoles to go alongside the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
The consoles feature either Groudon or Kyogre and comes bundled with a copy of either Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire. They will be released in Japan on the 21st of November.
It has also been revealed that Japan will be getting a soundtrack for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire on the 6th of December. Considering we now have soundtracks for all the games from the original Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire right up to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, chances are the soundtrack will be released outside of Japan not long after.
A brand new trailer has just been released by the official Pokémon YouTube channel showing off Mega Gallade, Mega Sharpedo and Mega Camerupt, who were all discovered in the CoroCoro leaks a couple of days ago. The trailer can be viewed below:
The trailer doesn't reveal a great deal of note, although it does give us some interesting information on the abilities Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon have. When their abilities, Desolate Land and Primordial Sea, come into effect no weather moves will work. When Desolate Land is in effect water type moves will no longer work and when Primordial Sea is in effect Fire Type moves will no longer be usable.
Alongside the trailer we've also learnt that a demo for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire will be downloadable through the 3DS' eShop with the use of a special code. How you obtain this code is yet to be revealed, but we'll bring details...
Yesterday this month's edition of CoroCoro began to leak and brought with it the reveal of three brand new Mega Pokémon, but today the last page of the magazine with information on Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire has surfaced.
It hasn't revealed much information, however it does show Rayquaza and states the Pokémon is said to be related to the secret of Mega Evolution. Chances are this means that Rayquaza will have the ability to Mega Evolve, but we'll have to wait and see on that front.
Following on from yesterday's reveal we also now know what ability Mega Gallade is given when it Mega Evolves. Once Mega Evolved Mega Gallade obtains the ability Inner Focus.
This month's edition of Japanese magazine CoroCoro has started to leak and this month brings with it the reveal of three brand new Mega Pokémon to be introduced in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
The first Mega to be revealed this month is a Mega Gallade. Mega Gardevoir was introduced in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, so it seems fitting that Wally would find himself with a Mega Gallade. Nothing about the Mega Evolution is currently known.
Next up we have a Mega Sharpedo which has the ability Strong Jaw when Sharpedo Mega Evolves. Apparently all of the Pokémon's stats are boosted when it Mega Evolves.
Lastly we have a Mega Camerupt. When...

The Japanese Pokémon YouTube channel has today released a brand new trailer for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. The trailer doesn't show off anything major, although it does give us our first look at diving in the game. The trailer can be viewed below:
At the end of the trailer we also get to take a look at the figures being offered as a pre-order bonus for the games in Japan.
Our second major news from the Pokémon World Championships has just come thanks to Masuda officially revealing Mega Slowbro after the Pokémon leaked earlier this week.
During the opening ceremony for the event Masuda officially revealed Mega Slowbro, and while he commented that he may not be the first to show us the Pokémon, he is the first to show us footage of it in battle. The trailer can be seen above.
After the official Pokémon website for Korea accidentally leaked two new Mega Pokémon we've been eagerly awaiting the two being officially revealed.
Today Mega Audino has been officially revealed at Gamescom, and thus we have a nice shiny trailer showing the Mega off, which you can see below:
Mega Slowbro has yet to be revealed but chances are it's going to be revealed at the Pokémon World Championship's this weekend.
The official Pokémon site for Korea has accidentally leaked two new Mega Pokémon for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
The two new Mega Pokémon are Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino. Very little is known about the two currently, but we do know that Mega Audino is a Normal and Fairy type with the Healer ability. As far as Mega Slowbro goes we know is that the Pokémon now has the ability Shell Armor and keeps its Water and Psychic typing. Mega Audino gets a boost in Defence and Sp. Defence, while Mega Slowbor has a boost in Defence and Sp. Attack.
It's unclear when the Pokémon will be officially revealed considering they weren't in this month's CoroCoro and that the official site has gone off-line in order to remove the two, but no doubt they'll turn up soon.
