So, a new trailer was released for Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. A few things were emphasized in the trailer… One them was already discussed in a previous article, so I won’t be going over Hidden Bases.

Now, let me ask you…Remember Metagross? Remember how over-powered he was? Well, Metagross got a Mega Evolution. That over powered beast just got even stronger. From the looks of the trailer, his arm looks like four cannons, two on each side… If you look carefully though, you can see four more arms in that back.  Are those going to have any significance?  I doubt it, they are probably just for looks but who knows.

Another thing that got featured in the trailer were 5 gym leaders, and 2 of the elite four.  Petalburg’s Norman, Rustboro’s Roxanne, Mauville’s Wattson, Dewford’s Brawley, and Lavaridge’s Flannery where all showcased along with their slight redesigns. It was not shown whether or not they will have the same Pokemon or whether they will have Mega Evolutions. Two of the elite four got shown off as well… Sidney (who looks like a total creeper now) and Phobe were displayed.  I believe the champion will have a Mega Evolution based on X and Y  (This is pure speculation, the champion was not shown once in this trailer). But, like the gym leaders, I’m not quite convinced that the rest of the elite four will have a Mega Evolution.

With everything Game Freak and Nintendo has shown off so far with these two remakes, they are shaping up quite nicely. I’m very excited to explore Hoenn with the same graphics engine of Pokemon X and Y… I hope it can live up to what the originals were (Knowing Nintendo and their track record with remakes, I wouldn’t worry too much).  Keep an eye out for more news on Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, and anything else Nintendo here, have a good day.
