In an interview with nTower, Junichi Masuda revealed there would be no patch for Pokémon X and Y that would add compatibility for new Mega Evolutions that will be introduced in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. It should be noted that there is no technical reason for not adding compatibility into X and Y via a patch as all the infrastructure to patch the games is available as its the same game engine and generation and there has already been two patches for X and Y which shows it can be done. Nintendo and GAME FREAK have always required people purchase the latest Pokémon games to play in the current tournaments and this is probably the only reason there will not be a patch.

nTower Interview with Junichi Masuda and Shigeru Ohmori Translation

nTower: Will Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire be compatible with the games Pokémon X and Y? Can the new Mega Evolutions be used in the Kalos Region (for example with an update)?

Masuda: We do not plan to release a patch for Pokémon X and Y to update the games that effect. There is a separation of what you can experience in Pokémon X and Y and in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Therefore, we want to separate the games to that effect.

Legendary Pokémon Rayquaza Joins Groudon and Kyogre in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire

True powers of Groudon and Kyogre revealed; Mega Camerupt, Mega Sharpedo, and Mega Gallade make their debut in the Hoenn region

pic pic pic

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced today that fan favourite Rayquaza, an incredibly powerful Pokémon, will join fellow Legendary Pokémon Groudon and Kyogre in the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire video games. This mysterious Dragon- and Flying-type Pokémon is said to descend to the planet’s surface when Groudon and Kyogre clash. Adding to its legend, Rayquaza is somehow related to the mystery of Mega Evolution. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire players will find out precisely how when the video games launch November 28, 2014, for Nintendo 3DS and 2DS systems.

True Powers of Groudon and Kyogre

Legendary Pokémon Groudon and Kyogre intensify their power under Primal Reversion, each obtaining an Ability that only Primal Groudon or Primal Kyogre can possess.

Primal Groudon gains the Desolate Land Ability, which changes the weather condition to extremely harsh sunlight. Opponents cannot change the weather condition during extremely harsh sunlight, meaning moves like Rain Dance, Sunny Day, Sandstorm, and Hail will fail, and Water-type attacks will fizzle out. Abilities like Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream and Snow Warning will also fail to activate. Groudon can unleash a move unique to it alone, Precipice Blades, a powerful attack that can hit multiple opponents with an upward surge of sharp rocks.

Primal Kyogre’s exclusive Ability is Primordial Sea, which changes the weather condition to an oppressive heavy rain. As with extremely harsh sunlight, opponents cannot change the weather condition during heavy rain. The Abilities Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream, and Snow Warning will fail to activate, and Fire-type attacks become ineffective as well. Kyogre has its own move that only it can use, Origin Pulse, an attack that can slam multiple opponents with water massed into ballistic orbs.

Team Magma and Team Aqua battle with Mega-Evolved Pokémon Team Magma is led by Maxie, who leads the team’s mission in seeking a world ideal for humanity. The organisation wishes to increase the landmass on the planet, adding to it so humanity can labour to achieve greater evolution and development. Team Magma thinks labouring for the equal coexistence of humanity and Pokémon is foolish and only holds back humanity’s progress.

During the team’s mission, Maxie battles with the Fire- and Ground-type Pokémon Camerupt, which can Mega Evolve into Mega Camerupt. Maxie wears a pair of Mega Glasses, set with a mysterious Key Stone needed to Mega Evolve his Pokémon. Players can battle with Camerupt, too, and when it Mega Evolves, its Ability changes to Sheer Force, which raises the power of all attacking moves that have an additional effect. But beware—the additional effects are ignored. Most of Mega Camerupt’s base stats are uniformly raised, but its Speed drops. It’s best to think of strategies where Mega Camerupt can be used as the second act in battle.

Team Aqua is led by Archie, who leads the team’s mission in increasing the size of the oceans in an effort to bring back the rich habitats lost to Pokémon due to humanity’s greed. Team Aqua believes the ocean is the font of all life, and by restoring it, its members think that they can re-create an ideal home for Pokémon.

During the team’s mission, Archie battles with the Water- and Dark-type Pokémon Sharpedo, which can Mega Evolve into Mega Sharpedo. Archie wears the Mega Anchor, set with a mysterious Key Stone needed to Mega Evolve his Pokémon. Players can battle with Sharpedo, too, and when it Mega Evolves, all of its stats show a boost, and its already high Attack is enhanced. Mega Sharpedo also gains the Strong Jaw Ability, which raises the power of bite attacks like Crunch.

A young Trainer named Wally and his Mega Gallade

When players begin their adventure, they will meet a timid young Trainer named Wally, who hails from Petalburg City. He hopes to be a strong Trainer despite being meek and shy. Tiny Ralts is the first Pokémon that Wally catches, and after it evolves into Kirlia and then Gallade, it can Mega Evolve into Mega Gallade. Players can encounter Ralts, too, and when they evolve it to Kirlia and use a Dawn Stone on a male Kirlia, it will evolve into Gallade. When Mega Evolved, Mega Gallade’s Ability changes to Inner Focus, which prevents it from flinching during battle. Its Attack and Speed stats also improve, making Mega Gallade an effective first-strike Pokémon.

Play the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version!

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo also announced today that players can start their next Hoenn-region adventure early with a special demo version of the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire games.

The Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version features gameplay that players won’t experience anywhere else. During the course of this early adventure, players are likely to encounter a familiar Pokémon that can now Mega Evolve. What’s more, this Mega-Evolved Pokémon can be brought into the full Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire games. Reward items obtained during the Special Demo Version adventure can also be brought into the full game. Details about how to bring Pokémon and items into the full game will be announced soon.

More details about the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire special demo version will be announced soon.

Pokémon Bank and the Pokémon Global Link are compatible with Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire

The Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire games will be compatible with Pokémon Bank and supported by the Pokémon Global Link from the day of release.

Pokémon Bank is an application and service that allows players to deposit, store, and manage their Pokémon in private Boxes on the Internet. Pokémon Bank is a powerful resource for players who like to obtain many different kinds of Pokémon, or for those who like to raise many Pokémon in preparation for battles and competitions!

Pokémon Bank is a paid service with an annual charge for usage.

The Pokémon Global Link is a linked website that uses players’ saved data and gameplay progress, helping to bring together Pokémon players from around the world. The Pokémon Global Link will continue to support the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y games, as well as Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
