Mega Evolutions and Primal Abilities and Moves confirmed

Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire — 12 September, 2014

TPCi has today confirmed the new Mega Evolutions leaked recently in CoroCoro. The video below shows Mega Camerupt, Mega Sharpedo and Mega Gallade in battle, and also confirms the details for Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre.

Primal Groudon's ability is Desolate Land, which turns the sunlight extremely harsh. It prevents the weather being changed, whether by moves like Rain Dance or abilities like Drizzle. It also blocks all Water-type attacks, which evaporate in the harsh sunlight. Groudon's new signature move that was previously hinted at is called Precipice Blades.

Primal Kyogre's ability is Primordial Sea, which creates heavy rain. It prevents the weather being changed, whether by moves like Sunny Day or abilities like Snow Warning. It also blocks all Fire-type attacks, which fizzle out in the heavy rain. Kyogre's new signature move that was previously hinted at is called Origin Pulse.

A few more details on Team Magma and Aqua have been revealed. Team Magma leader Maxie battles with Mega Camerupt and wears a pair of Mega Glasses that contain the Key Stone for Mega-Evolution. Team Aqua leader Archie battles with Mega Sharpedo and wears a Mega Anchor that contains the Key Stone.

TPCi have also confirmed that a demo version of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be released internationally. It apparently features gameplay that players won¹t experience anywhere else. Players are likely to encounter a familiar Pokémon that can now Mega Evolve, and will be able to transfer it to the full game when released!

Pokemon Bank and Global Link are also confirmed to be compatible with OR/AS.
