Earlier this week a demo for the upcoming Pokemon remakes was announced and released in Japan and with this demo special things are going to happen that affect your full game when it releases this November. Of course when this demo was announced there was a number of people outside of Japan who were hoping this demo would arrive outside of Japan and I can officially say that it has been confirmed.

Latest issue of Coro-Coro reveals three new Mega evolutions for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire plus other details

What news is better then Pokémon news and as it is that time of the month again we have the latest details coming out of Coro-Coro. The images suggested by this month mostly relate to Mega Evolution and in fact we have three new mega evolutions confirmed for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Coming from this month we have three very exciting Pokémon confirmed as Mega Evolutions and quite frankly before we go on I must say good job to Game Freak for improving Pokémon that needed improving and also say I think the new updated designs look really cool.

So coming from Coro-Coro this month we have confirmation of Sharpedo, Gallade and Camerupt getting a mega evolution. Mega Sharpedo has the Strong Jaw ability and Mega Camerupt has the Sheer Force ability. As it also appears we will see the trainer Wally with a Mega Gallade. Good choices, don’t you agree? They are each different and what I find funnier is that now both Gardevoir and Gallade both have a mega evolution.

By a further look at Coro-Coro this month it also appears both of the title legendary Pokémon also appear to e receiving new abilities. Apparently Primal Kyogre has something to do with 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. I do wonder might this be how in each game we will get new areas to visit based on how these affect add to the world when they happen. This just all leaves a lot to theorize and imagine and here’s hoping we will see the reveal of more new mega evolutions such as Slaking in the future.

Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire – Mega Audino screenshots, official announcement

Just the other day we received a sort of confirmation in regards to a small selection of mega evolutions in this case being Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino. This was found through the Korean Pokemon website but we had no idea about when the Pokemon would receive an official announcement, well as it appears Gamecon was that time but not for Mega Slowbro but instead Mega Audino and an official announcement has been released:

Today The Pokémon Company International showcased the Mega-Evolved form of Audino in a new trailer made especially for the crowds at gamescom, taking place this week in Cologne, Germany.

Audino was not known to evolve from or to any other form, so this is an interesting twist in the mysterious story of Mega Evolution.

Before Mega Evolving, Audino is known to use the feelers on its ears to tell how others are feeling or when a Pokémon Egg might hatch. It may have either the Healer Ability or the Regenerator Ability. After Mega Evolving, Mega Audino adds Fairy type to its Normal type, automatically gaining all the advantages of Fairy type. Mega Audino always has the Healer Ability.

Thanks to its improved Defense and Special Defense stats, Mega Audino can be a great support in Double Battles. It emits a powerful, soothing pulse from its body that reduces hostility in others and calms any opponent within range. Pokémon should avoid contact with Mega Audino’s new secondary feelers lest they fall into a deep sleep and become easy prey to an opponent’s attacks!

Mega Slowbro & Mega Audino outed by the official Korean Pokemon site

As it appears we have confirmation of two new mega evolutions and the latest ones are from from the Pokemon I was expecting, according to the Korean Pokemon website Mega evolutions of Slowbro and Audino are set to appear. These two Pokemon are two of the main ones I would never have expected particularly Audino. The full listing of these mega evolutions has not been given yet but I am certain this will come for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and perhaps we will see a full announcement of these Mega Evolutions during Gamescon which is already well underway so stay tuned for a proper announcement. I also imagine that in a few years time every Pokemon will be mega evolved and Audino and Slowbro to at least look cool and I look forward to any future mega evolutions to come as I imagine there are still plenty more waiting in the wings to jump into the spotlight.

Beldum event set for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire is out in just a couple of months and as we find out about new mega evolutions and several other things. One of the announcements made last month was about Metagross receiving a mega evolution and since then or just recently it has been confirmed that we will be playing Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire with a bonus Pokemon to have from the very beginning. This Pokemon is a shiny Beldum along with its mega stone allowing us to have ourselves a much better experience then we did back in the original games.

On top of this a trailer has been given displaying the new mega evolutions as well as how contests have changed, eve allowing mega evolution if you haven’t checked out the trailer yet here it is. Now we can look forward to future Pokemon possibilities.

New Mega Evolutions announced for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire plus other details

Hello all it is that time of the month again which I mean in the good way it is time when the leaks come out of Japan from Japanese publication Coro-Coro and in this case the leaks have started relating to the upcoming Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire remakes Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and some more details relating to the game. Might I also add that the details presented this month have me really excited as they give me all the details I want about the game.
One of the key parts of this months announcements pertain to mega evolutions and the Pokemon that have now been announced to have these evolutions. Two of these Pokemon are ones I have been really wanting mega evolved for a few months now and I am pleased to be able to announce that mega evolutions for Salamence and Altaria have been announced and they look really cool, on top of this Lopunny the evolution of Buneary has also received a mega evolution. Mega Altaria is Dragon/Fairy type with Pixilate and Mega Lopunny who is Normal/Fighting type with Scrappy. Mega Salamence can use the ability Aerilate.

When players change Pikachu’s clothes for contests, it gets special moves. Pikachu Rock Star can use the move Meteor Mash, Pikachu Ph. D. knows Electric Terrain, Pikachu Pop Star knows Draining Kiss, Pikachu Belle knows Icicle Crash, and Pikachu Libre knows Flying Press.

Another tidbit from CoroCoro: players receive a shiny Beldum – who holds its Mega Stone – in Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire through an event. The magazine also confirms that you’ll earn special clothes for participating in contests with you meeting a Contest Idol named Lucia.

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire past and present image comparison

There is definitely a difference between recent Pokémon games such as Pokémon X and Y and the upcoming Ruby and Sapphire remakes, this come in comparison to the original Pokémon games all the way up to about Diamond and Pearl. The noticeable difference has happened in just how much art styles, technology and the power of a console has improved and with each time making the games look even better even just a simple remakes showed a severe improvement in look compared to the original game. This is what it is all about, the image at the top is a comparison showing three sequences in both games and really showing just how much the games have improved.

The first image comes from the start of the game and we already know from our time with Pokémon X and Y that the battle look and design has improved and you can easily see just how improved it has been it eleven years with better detail presented then just a flat and possibly uneventful battle.

The second image is set just outside the Rustboro city gym and again the detail is incredible, I always liked Rustboro city back in the day but the level of detail and the design just makes things look better and again not so flat.

Lastly the third image is the Rustboro city gym and you can definitely see the level of detail added, I mean no offence but the original Rustboro gym was pretty bland as you can see but the new one is really incredible the addition of a museum looks like a natural fit and the skeletons in the back just look really cool, hopefully we see similar improvements in other gyms.
