Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire – Evolution, Acro Bike Footage

New footage from Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire has surfaced, showing off both the flashy evolution sequence in the 3DS re-makes and the Acro Bike featured in the third-gen games.

The video is in Japanese, but you still get a good look at the new evolution animation sequence, Acro Bike tricks such as wheelies and bunny hops, and plenty of the re-designed landscape of Hoenn – Fortree City and its rope bridges, Route 119 and Jagged Pass.

Check it out:

 

The battles look better but largely the same; it’s really the new perspective of Hoenn that I am looking forward to the most from these re-makes.

Stay tuned for more information as it surfaces until the November launch date.

Blog – Catching Up After E3

As most of you are probably already aware, Nintendo’s offerings at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles were pretty much the talk of the show.

This year’s presentation largely expanded the upcoming Wii U library, but plenty more was announced for the Nintendo 3DS, including information about key titles such as Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, as well as upcoming eShop titles.

Unfortunately, I was unable to keep up with any sort of posting during the E3 week, and missed out on most of the big headlines. As a result, I am going to do my best to post a few of the highlights and resume consistent posting from this point forward.

Stay tuned for some of the big release date announcements, trailers and new information about E3′s biggest Nintendo 3DS games.

Top 6 Most-Wanted Hoenn Mega Evolutions

This November, Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire will revisit the Hoenn region and the Third Generation Pokemon games, Ruby & Sapphire. 

We already know that there will be new Mega Evolutions; specifically new forms of Sceptile, Swampert, and Diancie have been revealed. There will also be some kind of “Ancient Devolution” form of the legendary monsters Groudon and Kyogre, but further details are unknown.

Granted, there were several “Megas” for Hoenn-based Pokemon introduced in Pokemon X & Y - Manectric, Mawile, and Blaziken to name a few – but I would like to see more in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

Keep reading after the jump for my short list of most-wanted Mega Evolutions based in the Hoenn area, complete with some nifty / hilarious “Fakemon” results, courtesy of Google Image Search. Continue reading

Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire – New Starter Mega Evolutions Revealed

The latest issue of CoroCoro magazine has revealed that all three starter Pokemon in the upcoming Pokemon Omega Ruby & Pokemon Alpha Sapphire will have “Mega Evolutions”.

Mega Blaziken was introduced in Pokemon X & Y, so that’s nothing new – but scans of the magazine (seen above) show images of Mega Swampert and Mega Sceptile, as well as Mega Diancie, all of which look considerably impressive. More details after the break.  Continue reading

Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Details Coming June 15

Not much has been revealed about the upcoming Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire games, at least nothing substantial enough for the die-hard fans such as myself to feel satisfied.

This looks to change very soon – apparently there will be “a large scoop” about the “third-gen” Pokemon re-makes via Pokémon Get☆TV on June 15.

Pokémon Get☆TV (as well as the Japanese magazine Coro Coro) have been consistently focused sources of legitimate information on the Pokemon series, so I expect that we should see something interesting in just over a week – perhaps even a few screenshots, or information about what exactly sets these games apart from past Pokemon titles.

6 New Pokemon I Can’t Wait to Catch in Pokemon X & Y

The worldwide launch of Pokemon X & Pokemon Y is upon us; at midnight tonight I will finally be getting my hands on my very own copy of Pokemon Y and jumping right into the sixth generation of the series. I do not plan on sleeping much over the next few days, as there are greater things to do – like playing my most-anticipated game of 2013, bar none.

Just before we all get into our individual adventures in the Kalos Region, I would like to share some of the Pokemon I am the most excited to catch and use in battle in X & Y – these are not necessarily the creatures that I think will be the strongest for competitive play, but they are definitely personal favorites that I am thrilled to see in the game. WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD! If you do not want to spoil any of the new Pokemon for yourself, do not continue reading after the break!
