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.

Super Smash Bros. For 3DS – N’s Castle Stage Revealed

Super Smash Bros. series creator Masahiro Sakurai revealed yet another handheld-exclusive stage in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for 3DS; this one appears to be based on N’s Castle from Pokemon Black & White / Black 2 & White 2.

Directly from Sakurai’s most recent “Pic of the Day” post on Miiverse…

Super Smash Bros 3DS - Pokemon Black White Stage

Reshiram appears on one of the stages in the 3DS version! Zekrom and Milotic will appear, too. It’s close enough to the launch date, so I don’t have to describe this stage to you, right? The design of this stage is based off of the surroundings of someone’s castle.

This is the second 3DS-exclusive stage based on the Pokemon series; the first is based around Pokemon X & Y’s Prism Tower landmark.

I am excited to see the full layout and design of this stage; I wouldn’t be surprised if players need to occasionally dodge incoming attacks from Reshiram, Zekrom and Milotic.

Stay tuned for more details about Super Smash Bros. for 3DS as the October 3 launch approaches.

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.


Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Re-Makes Headed to 3DS, November 2014 Worldwide Launch Confirmed

The time has finally come – Pokemon fans have long hoped for re-makes of the 2003 Game Boy Advance games Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire, and those very re-makes appear to be headed to the Nintendo 3DS this November.

There were plenty of hints about the Third Generation games being re-made throughout Pokemon X & Y, which launched last October.. The Gen-III re-makes are officially titled Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, and you can see the box art for each game below:

Here’s the official press release from Nintendo:

May 7, 2014- The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced today that Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire will launch worldwide in November 2014, exclusively for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS. Pokémon fans will collect, battle, and trade Pokémon in a new adventure.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are a fresh take on Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, which launched in 2003 and were fan-favorite hits on the Game Boy Advance system. The new titles promise to take players through a dramatic story within a spectacular new world.

Here is an official teaser trailer as well:


We will have more on this story as it develops; I wonder just how much of a “fresh take on Pokemon Ruby / Pokemon Sapphire” these new games will actually be.

Suffice it to say, we will probably see some of the finest visuals and updates to the Pokemon series to date, as well as re-balancing of new mechanics that were added in X & Y, such as the Fairy-Type and Mega Evolutions (the versions of Kyogre and Groudon on the covers of Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire look somewhat “Mega”, don’t they?).

Of course, for now, this is all just speculation – all we know are the official titles, the worldwide launch date, and the box art designs.
