Pokemon Ruby / Sapphire Trailer Shows Mega Evolutions, Contests And More

The Official Pokemon Channel on Youtube recently released a new video for their upcoming games, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. The video not only reveals more mega evolved Pokemon but also some new characters and contests waiting for players.

The mega evolved Pokemon include Mega Altaria, Mega Salamance (looks like a robot or a jet plane) and Mega Lopunny.

Players will also be able to take part in various contests where they get to show off the skills of their Pokemon as well as various costumes in order to appeal the spectators. If the audience is pleased, there is a chance the player’s Pokemon might get Mega evolved.

The costumed Pikachus will not be just for show off though, players will be able to use them in battle and each costume will provide different and unique attacks.

Horde encounters which were originally introduced in Pokemon X and Y will also be present in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. A player’s Pokemon will be faced off against up to 5 other Pokemon, most of which will be of the same species.

To celebrate the release of game on November 21st, an in game event will be introduced where players can get their hands on a Shiny Beldum with a Mega Stone.

The event will start on November 21st however, its end date is still unknown. Mega Stones can help evolve the Shiny Beldum into Shiny Mega Metagross form.
