Pokémon Omega Ruby (Japanese: ポケットモンスター オメガルビー Pocket Monsters Omega Ruby) and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire (Japanese: ポケットモンスター アルファサファイア Pocket Monsters Alpha Sapphire) are paired Generation VI games that are enhanced remakes of the third-generation titles Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. The new games were revealed in a worldwide announcement on the official Pokémon websites on May 7, 2014 and were released in most regions of the world on November 21, 2014; with the exception of Europe, where the games will be released on November 28, 2014.

Pre-release information

According to the press release that announced the games, the new titles will take players through a dramatic story within a spectacular new world.[1] The first footage from the game, a cutscene showing Groudon and Kyogre manipulating the weather via their respective Abilities, was revealed three days after the games' first announcement.[2] One month after the games' announcement, it was revealed that Groudon and Kyogre can undergo Primal Reversion becoming Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre, respectively.[3]

A number of features introduced in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire that had since been discontinued will return in these games. Pokémon Contests and customizable Secret Bases (now "Super Secret Bases") will return for the first time since Pokémon Platinum,[4] while the Mach Bike, the Acro Bike, and third-generation player characters Brendan and May will return for the first time since Pokémon Emerald.[5] Feebas will resume a Contest-specific evolution method.[6] In addition, a number of features introduced in Pokémon X and Y will also return, with Horde Encounters and Mega Evolutions already confirmed to be part of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, with the Horde Encounter feature expanding into Trainer Horde Battles. At least ten new Mega Evolutions will debut in this game, including Mega Sceptile, Mega Swampert, Mega Diancie, Mega Sableye, Mega Metagross, Mega Altaria, Mega Lopunny, Mega Salamence, Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino. The PokéNav will be redesigned as the PokéNav Plus, a device appearing on the touch screen outside of battle. The PokéNav Plus has four main functions — DexNav, which displays information about wild Pokémon available in the player's current location; AreaNav, a map used for navigation of location, Pokémon, Secret Bases and Berry Trees; BuzzNav, which reports on news from around the Hoenn region and from StreetPass; and PlayNav, which is used to connect to online play, local wireless play, Pokémon-Amie and Super Training.

The August edition of CoroCoro magazine introduced Cosplay Pikachu. This special Pikachu is given to the player to use in Pokémon Contests. This Pikachu gets a unique costume to wear during Contests; each costume comes with a specific, special move: Pikachu Rock Star gets Meteor Mash (Cool Contest); Pikachu, Ph.D gets Electric Terrain (Clever Contest); Pikachu Pop Star gets Draining Kiss (Cute Contest); Pikachu Belle gets Icicle Crash (Beautiful Contest); Pikachu Libre gets Flying Press (Tough Contest).
