Be an Eon Ticket Ambassador to start the Great #EonTicketUK Relay!

Win a chance to attend an exclusive launch event in London and receive one of the first Eon Tickets!

The launch of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS systems is just around the corner—and we have an amazing competition for all Pokémon fans out there.

Winners will travel to a GAME store in London, meet Producer Junichi Masuda from GAME FREAK, be given either a Nintendo 2DS Transparent Red + Pokémon Omega Ruby or a Transparent Blue + Pokémon Alpha Sapphire bundle*, and then return to a local GAME store in their departure location's city to pick up a Pokémon goody bag and share the Eon Ticket with others via StreetPass!

The Eon Ticket is a special in-game item for the new Pokémon titles. With the Eon Ticket, you can revisit Southern Island in your game, where you'll have the opportunity to catch one of the Legendary Pokémon, Latios or Latias**. Most Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire players will have to wait to receive this ticket via StreetPass from someone who has it already. But to kick off the Eon Ticket distribution, we're giving 15 Pokémon fans the opportunity to be among the first in the UK to get hold of this brilliant item to start the Great #EonTicketUK Relay!

Fifteen winners, each with a parent/guardian or a friend, will travel to London on launch day, staying in a hotel overnight on 28 November. The following day in London, at an exclusive launch event at the GAME store in Westfield Shopping Centre, Stratford, the attendees will meet Junichi Masuda from GAME FREAK, the producer of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, before being among the first in the country to receive the Eon Ticket and win a Nintendo 2DS bundle.

The attendees will then return to their departure location city, where a local GAME store will provide a Pokémon goody bag and host a reception in their honour, offering local Pokémon fans the chance to come and collect the ticket via StreetPass from the winners' new Nintendo 2DS systems. Once players get the Eon Ticket, they can help spread the word to their friends by using social media to say "I've got the #EonTicketUK!"

Complete the entry form to enter, select your nearest preferred departure location, and leave your contact information. If you're under 18, please get the permission of a parent or legal guardian first. We'll be in touch with the winners on 20 November. Entrants must select their nearest departure location from the 15 listed below and will need to be available to travel to London on 28 November, returning to a GAME store in their departure location city on 29 November in time for a late-afternoon event.

As a followup to the information revealed in the November 2014 issue of CoroCoro, the Pokémon Company International posted a press release with further details and high resolution artwork and screenshots. A video was also posted on YouTube to promote some of the new features in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.

More Mighty Mega-Evolved Pokémon Set for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire!


Take to the Skies and Soar in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire

Legendary Pokémon Latios and Latias Mega Evolve and Help Trainers Navigate the Hoenn Region by Air, Special Demo Version Details, New Mega-Evolved Pokémon, and Gameplay Features Revealed

14 October 2014— Today, The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced that the Legendary Pokémon Latios can be obtained in Pokémon Omega Ruby, while Latias can be obtained in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire when the titles launch 28 November 2014 for Nintendo 3DS and 2DS systems. These high-flying Dragon- and Psychic-type Pokémon can Mega Evolve and fly freely through the skies of the Hoenn region. Trainers can hop on the back of their Mega Latios or Mega Latias and navigate the region through the air at high speed while performing midair tricks and hairpin turns. This brand-new method of travel, called Soar, takes a player’s Pokémon adventure to new heights and provides access to Mirage spots, where rare Pokémon—including Legendary Pokémon—and valuable items may appear.

It was also revealed today that Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire players will be able to obtain the Eon Ticket later this year, granting them access to the Hoenn region’s Southern Island, where they can encounter and catch Latias in Pokémon Omega Ruby or Latios in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. This is the only way players can catch these Legendary Pokémon in-game, as they cannot be caught during normal gameplay. More details about when and how players can obtain the Eon Ticket will be announced later this year.

Special Demo Version from October 15th!

From tomorrow Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS owners can embark on a special Hoenn adventure by downloading the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version. The Special Demo Version gives players a glimpse of the adventure coming on November 28, including the chance to battle with Sceptile, Blaziken, or Swampert and see their Mega-Evolved forms in action!

New Mega-Evolved Pokémon: Mega Pidgeot and Mega Beedrill!

Mega Pidgeot and Mega Beedrill will make their debut in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.

megamega

Boasting increased Special Attack and high Speed, Mega Pidgeot makes quick work of its opponents. Pidgeot can learn the Flying-type move Hurricane, which creates a chaotic storm around the target, potentially causing confusion. Coupled with its No Guard Ability, which allows all moves to land a hit regardless of accuracy, Mega Pidgeot can be a saving grace in any battle.

Upon Mega Evolving, poisonous stingers on Beedrill’s tail and arms grow, new barbs sprout from its legs, and its Attack receives a boost. The Bug-type move Fell Stinger raises Beedrill’s Attack stat by two stages when it causes an opponent to faint, and its Adaptability Ability raises the power of its moves of the same type from the standard 150% to 200%, making Mega Beedrill a great offensive teammate.

Navigate Hoenn Adventures with PlayNav Plus!

PokéNav Plus is a new tool designed to help players navigate their journey across the Hoenn region. PokéNav Plus is packed with applications to help players find hidden or specific types of Pokémon in tall grass via the DexNav, check all kinds of Hoenn region information via the AreaNav, and view news from around Hoenn and from other players whom you’ve passed with BuzzNav.

The PlayNav function offers three popular features that first appeared in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y— the Player Search System (PSS), Pokémon-Amie, and Super Training. The PSS allows players to trade Pokémon and battle with others nearby or around the world with a Wi-Fi connection. Trainers can play with their Pokémon and feed them treats called Poké Puffs in Pokémon-Amie, and the bond between Trainer and Pokémon will grow. Super Training is a fun way to prepare your Pokémon team for battle. PlayNav also allows players to manage their O-Powers, special advantages that can be kept or shared with others as the game progresses, and view announcements via the Holo Caster.
