    Continuing on from XY, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are set to introduce a brand new group of Mega Evolutions.


    Mega Sceptile
    Type: Grass/Dragon
    Ability: Lightning Rod
    Stat changes known so far: None
    Thanks to the power in its quick legs, Mega Sceptile can be on its opponent in a flash! Mega Sceptile can cut off a portion of its tail to fire it like a missile at an opponent. Its lost tail will continue regenerating as long as it still has the energy for Mega Evolution.

    Mega Swampert
    Type: Water/Ground
    Ability: Swift Swim
    Stat changes known so far: +Attack
    When Swampert Mega Evolves into Mega Swampert, the strength that it needs to act in the water is increased, and it can use its tenacious power both on land and in the water. Despite its large body, its Speed will fully double when the weather is rainy. The musculature of Mega Swampert’s upper body has developed immensely, making it look tougher than ever.

    Mega Blaziken
    Type: Fire/Fighting
    Ability: Speed Boost
    Mega Blaziken makes its reappearance here after being a Wi-Fi event exclusive Mega Stone at the beginning of XY's release period. When Blaziken Mega Evolves into Mega Blaziken, it further hones the power of its kicks, always a source of pride to it. As it unleashes a flurry of savage kicks, its legs can begin to burn from the friction of the surrounding atmosphere. With its Speed Boost Ability making it faster with each passing turn, Mega Blaziken becomes unstoppable! As Mega Blaziken’s body temperature increases, its power and speed continue to ramp up.


    Mega Beedrill
    Type: Bug/Poison
    Ability: Adaptability
    Known stat changes so far: +Atk, +Speed
    The poison it produces from its four limbs all work instantaneously, yet the poison it emits from its tail is slow-acting. It uses the former to prevent its foes from fleeing, and the latter to deal the finishing blow. With six wings, Mega Beedrill flies to the attack with great speed! The poisonous barbs on its tail and arms both grow larger, and its legs sprout poisonous stingers to boot!


    Mega Pidgeot
    Type: Normal/Flying
    Ability: No Guard
    Known stat changes so far: +Sp.Atk
    The gusts it can whip up with its tough and well-developed wings are powerful enough to smash huge trees. The minerals that go into Pidgeot's feathers change, resulting in a change in their coloration as well. Its body grows much stronger, with the greatest improvements in its wings. The longer crest on its head acts like a sensitive antenna, and improves its stability while in flight.


    Mega Slowbro
    Type: Water/Psychic
    Ability: Shell Armour
    Stat changes known so far: +Def, +Sp.Atk
    Mega Slowbro's energy has gathered in the Shellder clamped onto its tail. As a result, the hardness of its shell is boosted, making an armor so hard that nothing and no one can scratch it. When Mega Slowbro battles, it stands up on its tail. It can move by bouncing along, using its tail as a spring.


    Mega Steelix
    Type: Steel/Ground
    Ability: Sand Force
    Known stat changes: +Atk, +Def, +Sp.Def
    The cells within its body, crystallized by the energy produced from Mega Evolution, are stronger than any mineral and able to withstand any temperature. It moves incredibly slowly, but its strengthened body is also impervious to damage, and it lashes out at foes without flinching.


    Mega Sableye
    Type: Dark/Ghost
    Ability: Magic Bounce
    Stat changes known so far: +Def, +Sp.Atk, -Speed
    Sableye has concentrated all of the energy from its Mega Evolution into the red jewel on its chest, which increases in size and detaches from its body. This enlarged jewel boasts incredible hardness, and it is said that no attack can even make a scratch on it! During battle, Mega Sableye shelters itself behind the jewel, from where it can take advantage of any openings its target leaves exposed.


    Mega Sharpedo
    Type: Water/Dark
    Ability: Strong Jaw
    Stat changes known so far: +Atk, +Def, +Sp.Atk, +Sp.Def, +Speed
    The fangs in Mega Sharpedo's mouth have transformed, and the horns that have sprouted from its nose can be regrown countless times. The yellow patterns on its body are scars carved into it in battle. With explosive propulsion, it can exceed 125 mph in an instant. Mega Sharpedo is used by Archie.


    Mega Camerupt:
    Type: Fire/Ground
    Ability: Sheer Force
    Stat changes known so far: +Atk, +Def, +Sp.Atk, +Sp.Def, -Speed
    The humps on its back have transformed into one large and very active volcano. Magma is constantly bubbling up from within its body. It has a deep hatred of water or any moisture, and has an explosive personality and a short temper. The volcano on its back erupts constantly in an effort to intimidate its foes. Mega Camerupt is used by Maxie.


    Mega Altaria
    Type: Dragon/Fairy
    Ability: Pixilate
    Known stat changes so far: +Atk, +Def, +Sp.Atk
    Mega Altaria's body is enveloped in its unique feathers, which glimmer with an iridescent sheen. They have grown even larger as a self-protective measure. It sings with a voice that is even more beautiful than before it Mega Evolved. It has a sociable personality and is not timid. It is used by Lisia in contests.


    Mega Glalie
    Type: Ice
    Ability: Refrigerate
    Known stat changes: +Atk, +Sp.Atk, +Speed
    The excessive energy from its Mega Evolution gushes out of its mouth, blasting away and destroying its jaw. It is no longer able to close its mouth, and the freezing air it emits becomes far stronger. It tosses foes into its gaping mouth, expelling a burst of chilled air to freeze them instantly.


    Mega Salamence
    Type: Dragon/Flying
    Ability: Aerilate
    Stat changes known so far: +Def
    The energy from Salamence's Mega Evolution is focused on its wings. Its two wings fuse together, becoming a single huge wing in a crescent shape. When flying at high speeds, this wing becomes a great blade, slicing through anything loitering in Mega Salamence's way.


    Mega Metagross
    Type: Steel/Psychic
    Ability: Tough Claws
    Stat changes known so far: +Atk, +Def, +Sp.Atk, +Sp.Def, +Speed
    Mega Metagross is used by Steven.


    Mega Latias:
    Type: Dragon/Psychic
    Ability: Levtiate
    Known stat changes: +Atk, +Def, +Sp.Atk, +Sp.Def
    Among the fastest Pokémon in existence, Mega Latios and Mega Latias can outrace a jet in flight and reach a speed of Mach 4! Latias becomes more agile and can make very sharp turns when it Mega Evolves. Its eyes are larger, and its irises are yellow.

    Mega Latios:
    Type: Dragon/Psychic
    Ability: Levitate
    Known stat changes: +Atk, +Def, +Sp.Atk, +Sp.Def
    Among the fastest Pokémon in existence, Mega Latios and Mega Latias can outrace a jet in flight and reach a speed of Mach 4! When Latios Mega-Evolves, it is larger, and can achieve higher speeds in flight. Its eyes are narrower, and its irises are red.


    Mega Rayquaza
    Type: Dragon/Flying
    Ability: Delta Stream
    Stat changes known so far: +Atk, +Sp.Atk
    Particles stream from the long filaments that extend from its jutting jaw. These particles can control the density and humidity of the air, allowing Rayquaza to manipulate the weather. Its green hide sparkles with an emerald-like quality. Rayquaza is said to be somehow connected with the mysteries of Mega Evolution. The Legendary Pokémon Rayquaza is said to achieve Mega Evolution in a unique way—unlike that of other Pokémon—due to its unique biology.


    Mega Lopunny
    Type: Normal/Fighting
    Ability: Scrappy
    Known stat changes so far: +Atk, +Speed
    New moves: High Jump Kick
    Mega Lopunny's wild fighting instincts, long dormant, have been awakened! A full-power strike from its ears could crumple solid steel plates. Its personality transforms and becomes extremely aggressive, which often leaves its Trainer feeling bewildered by the change.


    Mega Gallade
    Type: Psychic/Fighting
    Ability: Inner Focus
    Known stat changes so far: +Atk, +Speed
    Plates emerge on Gallade's arms, and the helmet and cape-like protrusions on its head and back give it a knightly appearance. When the situation demands, Mega Gallade can use its psychic power to reshape both arms into blades simultaneously, and fight using a dual-wielding style. Mega Gallade is used by Wally.


    Mega Audino
    Type: Normal/Fairy
    Ability: Healer
    Stat changes known so far: +Def, +Sp.Def
    New moves: Misty Terrain
    Mega Audino emits a soothing pulse from its body that reduces hostility in others. This powerful pulse calms any who come in range. Additionally, any creature that happens to come in contact with its second feelers will fall into a deep sleep.


    Mega Diancie
    Type: Rock/Fairy
    Ability: Magic Bounce
    Known stat changes so far: +Atk, +Sp.Atk, +Speed, -Def, -Sp.Def
    The impurities upon its body’s surface have fallen away, and it sparkles so brilliantly when reflecting light that you cannot look directly at it. The diamond on its head measures over 2,000 carats. In order to Mega Evolve Diancie into Mega Diancie, you'll have to start by obtaining Diancie for your Pokémon X or Pokémon Y game. Then, bring the Diancie you received into Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire!

    Primal Reversion:


    Primal Reversion is a new feature in ORAS. There appears to be a connection between Primal Reversion and Mega Evolution, as both allow a Pokemon to reach a higher level of power. However, Primal Reversion appears to be the Pokemon's original power, and sends them back to a previous state they once had.

    Primal Groudon
    Type: Ground/Fire
    Ability: Desolate Land
    Known stat changes so far: +Atk
    New moves: Precipice Blade
    The energy that fills its body pours forth as magma, and it burns with such an extreme temperature that its body is always shimmering with the haze of its heat.


    Primal Kyogre
    Type: Water
    Ability: Primordial Rain
    Known stat changes so far: +Sp.Atk
    New moves: Origin Pulse
    The energy that fills its body spills forth as seawater. Its body composition becomes nearly a match for seawater, and its blue skin glows like a sapphire. Its body is half-translucent, and a golden light glows from within it. It is more mysterious and magnificent than ever!

    The Protagonists

    Brendan and May return as the protagonists. Whichever character you don't play as will also return as your neighbour.

    The Professor

    The story starts when you save Professor Birch as he is being attacked by a wild Pokémon. He runs the Pokémon Lab in Littleroot Town. When you save Professor Birch, you will have your first meeting with the Pokémon that will become your partner on your journey, and a new bond will be born. Birch has been good friends with your father, Norman, since their school days. He has a tendency to get enthralled with Pokémon and leave home for long periods.

    A Rival

    Wally is a Trainer who grows in the hope of catching up to you. This young man lives with his parents in Petalburg City. Shy, even meek, Wally speaks rarely and takes care to be polite. When you first meet Wally, he is a weak, fidgety boy. But your presence inspires Wally to grow into a strong Trainer. Not only have his battle skills grown, but his spirit as well.

    The Champion

    Steven will be closely involved with you while you explore Hoenn. This mysterious young man with the elegant bearing has a great interest in collecting rare stones. He is in pursuit of the true story behind the mysteries that lie at the heart of the stories in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire: the origins of Mega Evolution and the Legendary Pokémon. If you manage to defeat the Elite Four, the summit of the Pokémon League will be your next goal, where you must challenge Steven. As the Champion of the Hoenn region's Pokémon League, Steven uses Steel-type Pokémon. Steven is also a user of Mega Evolution. He wears a Mega Stickpin, which bears a Key Stone, one of the mysterious stones needed for a Pokémon to Mega Evolve.

    The Antagonist Teams

    During your adventure, you will battle Team Magma in Omega Ruby and Team Aqua in Alpha Sapphire. Team Magma seeks to increase the land, while Team Aqua wishes to increase the seas. In order to bring about these grand plans, each will turn to the power of a Legendary Pokémon: Groudon or Kyogre. Team Magma pursues Groudon, while Team Aqua goes after Kyogre.
    Team Magma is an organization that plots to increase the landmass on the planet, effectively adding to the area upon which humanity can labor to achieve even greater evolution and development. Believing that humanity's development will lead to greater happiness for all the world, the members of Team Magma think that laboring for the equal coexistence of humanity and Pokémon is a foolish idea that serves only to hold back humanity’s progress.
    Team Aqua is an organization that plots to increase the size of the oceans in an effort to bring back the rich habitats lost to Pokémon due to humanity’s greed. The ocean is the font of all life, and by restoring it, the members of Team Aqua think that they can recreate an ideal home for Pokémon.


    Maxie is the leader of Team Magma, the team seeking a world ideal for humanity. He pays attention to even the smallest of details, and is quite sensitive in some regards. He has a habit of describing situations in numerical terms. He possesses a cool-headed outlook, thinking that some sacrifices cannot be avoided if he is to achieve his goals.


    Tabitha normally has a benign expression on his face, but when he gets worked up, his eyes become shrewd and his gaze is as sharp as a knife. His natural inclination to be helpful has apparently made him very popular with the Grunts. There are rumors that he has his sights set on becoming the leader of Team Magma.
    Courtney is a former scientist. She is known to have a brilliant mind, and she adores Maxie. She does not speak often, and shows little interest in much of what goes on around her—or even her own situation. Her personality is such that once her interest in someone or something is awakened, she will pursue it tirelessly. As you stand in Team Magma's way time and again, she begins to take an interest in you...


    Archie is the leader of Team Aqua, a man with an unwavering heart who seeks to build an ideal home for Pokémon. His big-hearted and stirring personality has won him deep loyalty from his subordinates. But he is also a dangerous figure, not caring what happens to himself or his team as long as he can achieve his goals.


    Shelly could be described as the brains of Team Aqua. Her style and her attitude may both seem extreme, but her intelligence, her blunt personality, and her dynamism have won her many fans among the members of Team Aqua.
    Matt's huge body, like that of a wrestler, holds a powerful will. He owes a debt to Archie, who once saved him, and he is loyal to his savior to the very depths of his heart. He has adopted Archie's ideals as his own, and he is ready to sacrifice his own life if it would help to make them a reality.

    Gym Leaders

    Roxanne is both a star pupil at the Trainers' School in Rustboro City and a Gym Leader with true ability. She tries hard to sound mature for her age. You'll earn the Stone Badge if you defeat this tough Trainer. Roxanne uses Rock-type Pokémon, including Nosepass.


    Brawly uses Fighting-type Pokémon, including Makuhita. He is an agreeable young man with a refreshing personality. Due to his surfing hobby, he has well-toned legs and shoulders and a great sense of balance. Defeat Brawly to earn the Knuckle Badge.


    Wattson was born and raised in Mauville City, where many different people gather, so he has a very sociable personality. He gets happy just by talking to others. His motto for life is that laughter is the best medicine. Wattson uses Electric-type Pokémon, one of which is the Electric- and Steel-type Magneton. If you can beat him, you'll earn the Dynamo Badge.


    Flannery uses Fire-type Pokémon, including Torkoal. She just became a Gym Leader and is struggling to act tough so people won't look down on her. She likes the Lavaridge hot springs because they have good aesthetics.


    Norman is both your father and Professor Birch’s best friend from their school days. He dedicates himself fully each day to perfecting Pokémon battle skills. Norman uses Normal-type Pokémon, including Slaking.


    Wallace, the Gym Leader of Sootopolis City, is a Water-type Pokémon user. He seems to know something about the legends passed down in Hoenn... Wallace appears again in the Delta Episode.

    Elite Four

    Sidney of the Elite Four is known for his chill attitude and sense of fashion. Sidney loves Pokémon battling, caring little whether he wins or loses. Sidney uses Dark-type Pokémon, including the Grass- and Dark-type Shiftry.


    While spending time at Mt. Pyre, Phoebe became able to communicate with Ghost-type Pokémon. She still thinks that she needs some training as a Pokémon Trainer, but she has confidence in her ability to communicate with her Pokémon. Dusknoir is one of the Ghost-type Pokémon that make up Phoebe's team.

    Other important characters

    Aarune is an expert on Secret Bases. An adventurer traveling the wide world, the enthusiastic Aarune can currently be found in the Hoenn region. He's quite taken with the Secret Base culture in the Hoenn region and wants to teach you about the fun of Secret Bases during your journey. His partner Pokémon is Flygon.


    Lisia is the number-one contest star in the Hoenn region, performing as a pair with her Pokémon partner, an Altaria named Ali. She can see the potential in you and your Pokémon. Although she is a contest prodigy, she also doesn't shy away from hard work and effort, which is where her true appeal lies.


    In the Delta Episode, it is Zinnia who holds the key. Wearing a fearless smile, she travels the Hoenn region in pursuit of her goal. Her true identity is shrouded in mystery. Zinnia journeys with Whismur as her companion. From the first time you meet, Zinnia talks to you cheerily. Zinnia appears and asks you some significant questions. "The actions that you're taking now... Are they based on the ideals you cling to? Or are they based on actual truths? And if they are... How much of the truth do you think you know?" What purpose is she working to achieve? Zinnia is a Mega Evolution user. She wears the Mega Anklet, set with one of the mysterious Key Stones needed to Mega Evolve her Pokémon, on her right ankle. In battle, she will Mega Evolve Salamence and send it out against her opponents.


    A new story unfolds involving the Hoenn region—the Delta Episode, which was not part of the original Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire games.
    • This episode involves the history of the Hoenn region, reaching 3,000 years into the past, and makes the mysteries of Mega Evolution clear.
    • The troubled tale begins with Zinnia, a young woman who bears a certain destiny.
    • The story includes appearances from Team Magma and Team Aqua, Steven, Gym Leader Wallace, and other familiar faces.
    • The Mossdeep Space Center carries out a variety of research related to space, including the development of rockets. Its staff members appear to be in a panic over observing an approaching asteroid!
    • Even as the asteroid approaches, there is new movement from Team Magma or Team Aqua, depending on which game you play. It appears that one of the Team Admins—either Courtney or Matt—is targeting Trainers to steal the Key Stones needed to make Pokémon Mega Evolve.
    • Mega Rayquaza takes to the skies with you on its back, heading for the open sky!
    • Don't miss the conflict between Rayquaza and Deoxys!

    • The DexNav application displays information about Pokémon that appear in the area you’re currently in.
    • It has search function that allows you to learn more about Pokémon hiding in the field. You can know what what kind of Ability or moves it might have before battling it.
    • You can choose to search only for certain species as long as you have caught at least one. The Search Level goes up in proportion to how many of that Pokémon you have found. As the Search Level goes up: It becomes easier for you to encounter Pokémon with Hidden Abilities or rare moves and the information you see about Pokémon you’re searching for will become more detailed.
    • Pokémon encounters can also be used to register Pokémon in your Pokédex: Spot a Pokémon traveling together with its Trainer in the city, find a school of Pokémon swimming in a horde, spy some Pokémon riding on the winds and the DexNav will start.
    • You can see the area you’re currently in, along with Pokémon you have encountered and caught there. An area Pokémon that you have encountered at least once will appear in silhouette and catching it will cause its icon will show up in full color.
    • The AreaNav can tell you where certain locations are, where to find Pokémon and Trainers, Secret Bases, and your Berry Trees. You can even check in on how your Berries are coming along. You can also see which trainers are ready for a rematch and learn details about them.
    • With the BuzzNav application, you can view news from around the Hoenn region and from other players whom you've passed by. The TV shows that appear come in all different formats, from news about Trainers and Secret Bases, to interviews from the streets of Hoenn, and news and entertainment programs full of information about Pokémon.
    • The PlayNav application is the return of XY's PSS. It lets you trade Pokémon, do battle with others, use the Super Training app, and have fun in Pokémon-Amie. In total it includes the PSS, Holocaster, Battle Spot, GTS, Wonder Trade, O-Powers, Shout-outs, Super Training and Amie.

    Bikes

    Both the Mach and Acro bike return.
    • The Mach bike allows you to ride up steep slopes.
    • The Acro bike provides you with a way to hop over bridges and up stepping stones.

    Trainer Hordes

    Horde battles return and also have a new inclusion.
    • Hordes now aren't restricted to wild Pokemon and you can be challenged by trainer hordes!

    New Moves:



    Dragon Ascent is a new move exclusive to Rayquaza. It is a Flying-type move, after soaring up toward the heavens in a great burst of speed, it crashes down in attack, dealing massive damage.


    Precipice Blade is a new move exclusive to Groudon. It's a Ground-type move that can hit multiple opponents.


    Origin Pulse is a new move exclusive to Kyogre. It's a Water-type move that can hit multiple opponents.

    New Abilities:


    Delta Stream is Mega Rayquaza's ability and changes the weather to strong winds, which has multiple effects:
    • The moves Rain Dance, Sunny Day, Sandstorm, and Hail will fail.
    • The Abilities Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream, and Snow Warning will fail to activate.
    • Moves of a type that Flying-type Pokémon are usually weak to will only deal normal damage to any Flying-type Pokémon in the battle.
    • When it is swapped out for another Pokémon on your team, the weather immediately returns to normal.
    • Delta Stream and Air Lock are different in that Delta Stream fills the air with strong winds for as long as Mega Rayquaza remains in battle. Air Lock cancels out all weather-condition effects for all of the Pokémon in a battle as long as Rayquaza remains in the battle.


    Desolate Land is Primal Groudon's ability and changes the weather to harsh sunlight, which has multiple effects:
    • It grants the same effects as Drought (increases power of Fire-type moves etc)
    • The moves Rain Dance, Sunny Day, Sandstorm, and Hail will fail
    • The Abilities Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream, and Snow Warning will fail to activate
    • Water-type attacks will become ineffective
    • As soon as Primal Groudon is switched out, the effects of Desolate Land will be removed and the weather will return to normal.


    Primordial Sea is Primal Kyogre's ability and changes the weather to heavy rain, which has multiple effects:
    • It grants the same effects as Drizzle (increases power of Water-type moves etc)
    • The moves Rain Dance, Sunny Day, Sandstorm, and Hail will fail
    • The Abilities Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream, and Snow Warning will fail to activate
    • Fire-type attacks will become ineffective
    • As soon as Primal Kygore is switched out, the effects of Primordial Sea will be removed and the weather will return to normal.
