If Pokemon X and Y offered Pokemon fans a modern re-imagining of our familiar Pokemon world then Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby will continue to flesh out this new design direction.In addition to carrying over features like Mega Evolutions and online interactions, Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby will be adding a whole new way to interact with other players: Secret Bases!
Secret Bases first appeared in the original Sapphire and Ruby games as a simple fort that trainers could decorate and personalize - but that all changes with their augmented return! Your secret base in Alpha and Omega is not dissimilar to a Pokemon Gym where you can set the battle rules, the themes, and the types of Pokemon you'll be doing battle with! From the screenshots alone it is safe to say there will be an abundance of decorations, so you will be able to impress your StreetPass friends with both your interior decorating and Pokemon battle skills. Secret Bases will have a bunch of different ways to interact with other players, like mini-games and the ability to chat.
Nintendo have also been teasing the development of the story, more specifically the lore behind Mega Evolutions and their connection to the legendary dragon Pokemon Rayquaza. The headlining legendary Pokemon Kyogre and Groudon, along with numerous others,will also be receiving Mega Evolutions but Rayquaza's biology is said to hold the answers to the many questions revolving Mega Evolution.
This game requires either a US or Singapore console to be playable.
