E3 Reveals New OR/AS Trailer and Release Dates!
Update (10:30 AM) – Story completely rewritten. Everything should be here now!
Nintendo’s pre-E3 stream has revealed a new trailer for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, which you can watch below from YouTube. The games will be released on November 21st in both North America and Japan and on November 28th in Europe.
Primal Groudon is Ground/Fire while Primal Kyogre is still Water. Both are much larger and heavier than their original designs and change to these designs through “Primal Reversion.” When they appear in battle, Primal Kyogre has an alpha symbol next to its name while Primal Groudon has the omega symbol. Both Pokemon also appear to be using new attacks in the first game screenshots below.
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.
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.
