Mega Sceptile, Swampert & Diancie join Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire
Japanese magazine CoroCoro has shared new reveals for Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, due to release this November as a 3DS exclusive.
Most notable are the existence of Mega Sceptile, Mega Swampert and Mega Diancie, where Mega Sceptile is a Grass and Dragon-type while the others retain their expected types. Mega Diancie’s ability is listed by the magazine as “???,” although it’s unclear what this indicates. The Mega Ring, required for activating a Mega Evolution in Pokémon X & Y, appears to be known as a Mega Bangle now.
Whereas the new Mega Evolution for Groudon & Kyogre, who grace each respective remake’s cover, are known as an Ancient Devolution. Roughly translations mean that they could each be known as Primal/Prehistoric/Primeval Groudon and Primal/Prehistoric/Primeval Kyogre, which may be that “other huge change in the world of battling” that battle director Shigeki Morimoto teased.
Pokémon League Champion Steven Stone returns and may have his own Mega Charizard X, while the Mach, Acro Bike, and antagonists Team Aqua and Team Magma will also appear.
