The guardian of the sky gains new heights in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
In a promotioal livestream today, Nintendo revealed a long-rumored new Mega Evolution to make its arrival in next month’s Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Rayquaza is the third central legendary Pokemon of the Hoenn region, alongside game mascots Groudon and Kyogre, and the ruler of the skies. To combat the impressive powers of Primal Devolution shown by the lords of land and sea that need to be kept in check, Rayquaza has been granted new powers of its own.
Mega Rayquaza comes equipped with a new ability, Delta Stream, which is especially designed for dealing with the clashing pair of titans over which it governs. This ability nullifies all weather conditions, and also gives a boost to normally-ineffective flying-type attacks. It also wields a flying-type move called Dragon Ascent, said to be the strongest flying-type move. As for the reason behind Rayquaza getting a Mega Evolution instead of a Primal one like Groudon and Kyogre, the answer will lie within the story of the game. Check out Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire on 3DS on November 21st.
