New Trailer Showcases Mega Evolutions, Secret Bases, And More

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 November 21.

  • Ooooh boy looks like Metagross will be in my party this time around.

  • Pikachu in costumes....*sigh* WHY??
  • Metagross was on my team on the old Pokemon Ruby and shall be once more! Heck yeah, Mega Metagross! Pikachu...don't care to much about you. No love for you.
  • Stupid Mega Metagross!!!! All my Mortal Enemy Pokemon are getting Mega evos...
  • Mega Mega Metagross is Major Major Major.

  • Judging by the Pictures, they're still doing Elite Four the way they did before, one after another. I thought they would continue with choosing your own order. The updated looks for the Gym Leaders definitely gives it more of a tropical feel, which Hoenn sort of is. Mega Evolutions...meh, I rather have new evolutions for Pokémon. It still looking pretty good; I can't wait for this game!
  • 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.

  • Ruby/Sapphire was good, but other than new mega evolutions (and apparently Pikachu cosplay) there isn't anything new here. I really want the Pokemon games to take a step forward each time. And before anyone claims otherwise, the secret base was already part of Ruby/Sapphire. The exact same thing you see now.
  • 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.

  • I don't know why... perhaps it's childhood preconditioning but i absolutely cannon resist Pikachu... that "piii ka" at the start of the trailer instantly put a smile on my face.
  • 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!!!!!
