The lights are on
The Pokémon Company and Nintendo
have released a new trailer today for the
upcoming Omega and Alpha remakes of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. The trailer is accompanied
by a pack of screens showcasing the game's updated visuals.
One of the biggest new bits of information is the Mega Evolution for Metagross. As with other Mega Evolutions, Metagross gains a
new attack and increased stats. See Mega Metagross in action in the trailer below.
The trailer also depicts some of the gym
leaders you will be facing as well as some cute Pikachu cosplays you can see
in-game. In addition, you will be able to create a secret
base which allows other players to come visit and fight in. The feature
essentially lets you create your own gym complete with traps and mazes.
While not in the trailer, more information for Mega Diancie was also announced. When Mega, Diancie will receive boosts to Speed, Attack, Special Attack while taking a reduction in Defense and Special Defense.
You will be able to re-experience Hoenn with all
these new features and more when Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire release on

Ooooh boy looks like Metagross will be in my party this time around.
Mega Mega Metagross is Major Major Major.
All of the character models have big heads and consequently look stupid, I love it. I don't love the lack of random decrepit bricks in Phoebe's room though.
I feel like my life is complete now.
MEGA-Metagross, about time he recieved a stronger form (we shall need a few fire types in our party). Our opponents are going down.
The Pikachu cosplay made me groan, but some of those Gym redesigns look NICE.
Ruby and Sapphire were great games so no doubt this will be as well.
the cosplay thing is a bit cringy but i suppose you don't have to partake in that, also it kind of makes sense, people put their dogs and cats in jumpers all the time, why wouldn't people do it with pokemon too lol
I'm so glad to see Metagross finally get the Mega Evolution it deserves. I can't wait for these games!
Metagross was always my favorite pokemon from sapphire so glad I can now team it up with my tyranitar. Now if they let dual mega evolutions that would be interesting but probably break the game balance.
The gym leaders are looking good in their make overs, so are the elite 4!!
Cosplay Pikachu is adorable! ^^
I've been saving my level 91 Metagross since Emerald version for 10 years. Now I can at last revive him as MEGA METAGROSS!!!!!
