Pokémon Omega Ruby

Curate Your Own Gym

Build and Customize a Super-Secret Base and Share It with the World!

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire players will be able to create their very own Secret Base, a customizable area that will allow them to show off their individuality by setting up mazes or traps for visitors to encounter, and even creating Pokémon battle rules, transforming their Secret Base into their own Pokémon Gym!

Players will be able to share their Secret Base with other Trainers around the world using StreetPass functionality, or they can create a QR Code for their unique Secret Base, enabling friends to visit it with ease. When visiting other Secret Bases, players can meet other Trainers in the same base and invite them back to their own Secret Base as Secret Pals. Players can interact and battle with Secret Pals, who have special skills that can support players in their adventures, such as sharing new Decorations, making a Pokémon Egg hatch faster, or raising the level of a select Pokémon by one. The more Secret Pals players have in their Secret Base, the more special skills will be available to help them in their adventures.

Players can also capture flags while visiting other players’ Secret Bases. Flags are located beside the Secret PC in each Secret Base. The more flags a player collects, the higher the rank earned, which brings rewards like improving the skills of a player’s Secret Pals.

  • Sounds interesting but kinda gimmicky...
  • I'M SQUEALING. I'm actually squealing right now
  • Weren't there secret bases in another Pokemon game?
  • This is a feature I've wanted since the very first Pokemon game. It probably didn't help that my cousin lied to me and said you got a gym after beating the Elite Four. I was heartbroken when I found out it was a lie, lol
  • I hope the Secret Base will be more forgiving in design. I remember always coming across ones with awkward angles and holes.

  • Ay dios mio! me chiquivine

  • OH MY GOD. Why couldn't I have this 12 years ago?! I was born too freakin early.
  • Sounds fun.

  • YESSSSSSS!!!! This is the reason why Gen 3 is my favorite and now that they are expanding the feature the hype kicks in! This makes me so happy :')!!

  • This was part of the original Ruby/Sapphire. Like, this exact feature. Secret bases, decorations, 'gym battles', all of it. I'm glad they're bringing it back, and street pass might make it something actually useful, but this certainly isn't anything new.


  • This sounds amazing.

  • Well secret bases aren't "new" for pokemon. Ruby and Sapphire introduced them although adding the creating your own gym is, and I think that is really interesting.

  • Time to farm high level pokemon, levelling is gonna be so much easier now.

  • That sounds cool.

  • Why they didn't continue the secret base after Emerald is beyond me.

    looks like some hoarder made them screenshots.

  • This was a lot of fun in the older games, so I can't wait to make all sorts of horrible new traps for people

  • I'm so glad to hear they're bringing this feature back. Sounds like it'll have a lot of added functionality this time around. Can't wait to set some traps!

  • Awesome! Just preordered this.
