Pokemon Alpha Sapphire



A few more Mega Evolutions have been revealed in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire through the latest issue of CoroCoro magazine. Mega Gallade, Mega Sharpedo and Mega Camerupt have all been confirmed. Mega Sharpedo has the Strong Jaw ability and Mega Camerupt has the Sheer Force ability. It’s looking like the game’s signature legendaries, Primal Kyogre and Primall Groudon will also have new abilities with Kyogre spouting the brand new Land of Beginnings and Groudon with Land of Endings. Both will trigger an effect known as Strong Rain and Strong Sunlight though it’s unknown what implication this will have on gameplay.


Today’s episode of Pokémon Get?TV featured new footage from Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre were both showcased, and it is now confirmed that the two creatures use brand new moves as opposed to reanimated moves. No word yet on what they’re called, but that information should appear soon.


More news coming out along side the latest trailer pertaining to pre-ordering the latest Pokemon remakes in Japan. Pre-orders open on September 20th in Japan and come with special figures of Primal Groudon and Kyogre with each respective version (these figures will be different to the ones Europe is receiving.)
