CoroCoro's latest issue has shown a number of new things in regards to the fast approaching Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire remakes.
It has been said that in next month's issue of CoroCoro, there is to be a serial code for a demo for ORAS. Supposedly, you start off with one of Grovyle, Combusken, or Marshtomp, and the demo concludes by receiving a Mega Evolution. Not much information besides that is known at this time.
New Mega Evolutions
Now, what everyone's been waiting for! New Mega Evolutions! These are ones that were likely to be guessed from as early on as E3 this year, or even from ORAS's first reveal, but regardless, here they are.
The first of the three is Mega Gallade
, which will have been evolved from Wally's Ralts from the beginning of the game. It retains its Psychic/Fighting
type and gains the ability Inner Focus
The second is Mega Sharpedo
, who retains its old Water/Dark
typing and receives the ability Strong Jaw
, previously exclusive to the Tyrunt family line. It is said that all of its boosts receive an increase. It is owned by Team Aqua's leader, Archie.
The third is Mega Camerupt
, who retains its old Fire/Ground
typing and receives the ability Sheer Force
. Its Speed supposedly decreases upon Mega Evolution, but its other stats are boosted drastically. It is owned by Team Magma's leader, Maxie.
Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon
The two "Primal Regressions" of Kyogre and Groudon have new abilities to replace Drizzle and Drought, respectively. Primal Kyogre's new ability is called Primordial Sea
while Primal Groudon's new ability is called Desolate Land
. These two abilities have the ability to summon strong rain
and strong sunlight
respectively. Strong rain blocks the use of Fire-type moves while also rendering the weather unchangeable, while strong sunlight blocks the use of Water-type moves while also rendering the weather unchangeable. They both get new moves as well; Primal Kyogre gains the move Origin Pulse
and Primal Groudon gains the move Precipice Blade
