Mega Steelix, Mega Glalie, U.S. OR/AS Demo, and More!
Pokemon has just revealed the English details for the Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire news that was featured in CoroCoro last week!
- Both Mega Steelix and Mega Glalie have been revealed in the Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire demos, which are currently available in other countries. Mega Steelix is Steel/Ground and has Sand Force. Mega Glalie is Ice-type and has Refrigerate.
- U.S. fans with a Pokemon Trainer Club account on Pokemon.com will be able to get the demo for the games starting
October 15thOctober 21st.
- Ho-Oh, Lugia, Dialga, Palkia, Reshiram, and Zekrom are all obtainable in OR/AS (though most likely version-exclusive).
- The Eon Ticket distribution is confirmed to take place later this year.
- The new method of flight on Mega Latios and Mega Latias is called “Soar” and the spots where you can find Legendary Pokemon are named “Mirage spots.” Valuable items are also said to appear here too. When you battle Pokemon in the sky, it’s like Dive where you can use any Pokemon without the restrictions of reality (like you can use a Charmander underwater for Dive, or a heavy Snorlax in the sky for Soar). Though in this case, the Eon Flute or Mega [email protected] might be helping with that logic somehow.
- The silhouette of what looked to be Hoopa or Diancie in the Legendary Pokemon artwork is actually Reshiram’s smoke emissions. However, the main focus of the artwork’s evidence was the golden rings around the portals, which still strongly points to Hoopa being the cause.
- The PokeNav is called the “PokeNav Plus” in English. “PokeNav Plus is packed with applications to help players find hidden or specific types of Pokemon in tall grass via the DexNav, check all kinds of Hoenn region information via the AreaNav, and view news from around Hoenn and from other players whom you’ve passed with BuzzNav. The PlayNav function offers three popular features that first appeared in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y – the Player Search System (PSS), Pokemon-Amie, and Super Training. The PSS allows players to trade Pokémon and battle with others nearby or around the world with a Wi-Fi connection. Trainers can play with their Pokemon and feed them treats called Poke Puffs in Pokemon-Amie, and the bond between Trainer and Pokemon will grow. Super Training is a fun way to prepare your Pokemon team for battle. PlayNav also allows players to manage their O-Powers, special advantages that can be kept or shared with others as the game progresses, and view announcements via the Holo Caster.”
