A brand new trailer released earlier this week from the Pokémon Company gives us our first glimpse at the games Pokémon Gyms and the Gym Leaders players will need to defeat in order to acquire Gym Badges, as well as a quick look at two members of the Elite Four! The trailer also takes a look at Cosplay Pikachu, Secret Bases, and, of course, Mega Metagross a brand new Mega Evolution!
In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire players will me introduced to Pokémon Professor Birch, who runs the Pokémon Lab in Littleroot Town, as with almost every Pokémon title, Professor Birch will give you your starting Pokémon and will set you on your way! He’ll also be on hand throughout to offer advice, and to tell you when it’s a bad time to use your bicycle.
The Pokémon Company has also revealed the first Gym Leaders in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Norman, who is the Leader of the Petalburg City Gym; Rustboro City Gym Leader Roxanne; Dewford Town Gym Leader Brawly; Mauville City Gym Leader Wattson; and Lavaridge Town Gym Leader Flannery. Once all eight Gym Leaders are defeated, players must travel to the Pokémon League to battle the Elite Four, including Sidney and Phoebe.
Once the Elite Four have been beaten, players must then take-on Hoenn League Champion, Steven, and his Mega Metagross, to become the new Pokémon League Champion! Mega Metagross, the latest addition to the Mega Evolved Pokémon Family is a massive Steel- and Psychic-type Pokémon and upon Mega Evolving, Metagross’s Ability changes to Tough Claws, which increases the power of attacks that make physical contact. Mega Metagross’ Speed stat increases too, with additional increases in its Attack, Defence, Sp. Atk, and Sp. Def, making Mega Metagross almost unbeatable!
