    Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire bring an exciting new feature to the Pokemon World, the ability to fly around the skies of Hoenn freely. You can take in the stunning views while completely controlling the movement of your Pokemon, with you able to adjust the speed and even do tricks while you fly. Sometimes while flying you'll encounter flocks of Flying-Type Pokemon. Choosing to interact with the flock will begin a wild Pokemon encounter. Known Pokemon obtainable this way include:

    The Eon Flute

    To gain access to the skies you'll need a new Key Item known as the Eon Flute. This special flute allows you to call upon Latios or Latias, who'll Mega Evolve to grant you transport across all of the Hoenn Region. You can land at any time so long as you're above a route, island or town.

    Once a day you can find a random Island. While only small, the island of the day will be easy to spot due to a distinctive red shine. The Island comes in five different types: Mirage Island, Mirage Forest, Mirage Mountain, Mirage Cave and Crescent Island. If you choose to land, you'll find a couple of rare items if you use the Dowsing Machine. Also, some of the islands have TMs and occasionally wild Pokemon which are not available in the usual Hoenn Region.

    The Island also has a StreetPass feature, which basically gives you a second chance to visit an Island. If you've already seen your Island for the day and you StreetPass another player, you'll both be able to see and land on each other's Island.​

    Mirage Spots

    There are parts of Hoenn that you can only get to while soaring on the back of Latios and Latias. These places are called Mirage Spots, and you'll only be able to encounter them when certain requirements are met. Mirage Spots contain a variety of Legendary Pokemon.​

    This is so great~! I've honestly always dreamed of being able to fly around the Pokemon world, and this is just a really cool, fun addition to the games I'm already super hyped for. <33

    This is definitely going to be a highlight of mine for ORAS. I've always wanted to see such a feature introduced into the Pokemon games and with Hoenn's massive body of water, not to mention the nature of Secret Bases, this is a great region to implement it in. Can't wait to see how smoothly the flying actually works in real-time~

    That being said, if this ends up being another feature that is unique to these remakes and never shows up again (or at least doesn't show up for Gen VII) I'm going to be very, very sad. ;_;
     
  4. And According to the trailer the legendary dogs( Entei Raikou And Suicune) Along with Tornadus Thundurus And Landorus Will also be available in the Mirage Spots in OR/AS ^.^

  6. i came across Cresselia with no special pokemon or items whatsoever (obviously had to get the Eon Flute and fly) but other than that, it just pops up ^^"

    It's now been confirmed to be a random event, with the specific Mirage Island having a chance to appear each day.
