Pokémon Omega Ruby

Scans of the popular Japanese gaming magazine CoroCoro have been released today by the Pokémon fansite showing off three new Mega Evolutions in the upcoming Generation III remakes; Pokémon Omega Ruby, and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire (ORAS). ORAS players can expect to see Mega Sharpedo, Mega Camerupt, and Mega Gallade; all three of which belong to characters important to the game’s story.





Two of the three Mega Evolutions have also had their Abilities confirmed and basic stat changes confirmed. Mega Sharpedo benefits from an increase in all stats and gains Ability Strong Jaw, which powers up biting moves, such as Crunch and Ice Fang, by 50%. Mega Camerupt loses a bit of Speed, but sees every other stat go up. It will possess the Ability Sheer Force, which increases the power of all attacking moves by 30%, but negates added effects of the move. Such moves as Stomp and Heat Wave are examples of those effected by the Ability.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are hitting US stores November 21st, and will be available for the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS. Which new Mega Evolution will you choose?

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
