posted by pekinoua on Saturday, 2014-10-11 12:15 (GMT+03:00)

The latest CoroCoro has leaked online revealing more Mega evolutions, along with many new details for the latest additions to the Pokémon series.

First of all, the scans officially reveal Mega Latios and Mega Latias for the first time and they're version exclusives to Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire respectively. The special Eon Ticket will make its return and it will allow to catch the other member of the Eon Duo in each game. The distribution will happen via a special serial code that will be given in an upcoming issue.

A new feature is also brought to the series and it's none other than Flying. For the first time in the series, the player can fly in the sky using Mega Latios and Mega Latias, with the help of a special item called Eon Flute. There they'll be able find many wild Pokémon, even some Legendary ones like Reshiram, Zekrom, Dialga and Palkia but even more are hinted as CoroCoro states that flying will allow players to find every single non-Event Legendary Pokémon that doesn't appear in XY and ORAS.

Two new Mega Evolutions were also shown and they're both from the first Generation. Mega Beedrill is Bug/Poison with the ability Adaptability, while Mega Pidgeot is Normal/Flying with the ability No Guard. The PokéNav was also shown and it received an update. It's now called MultiNavi and it includes features like Amie, GTS and DexNavi.

Thanks to Serebii for the scans.

Ten years of the Individual Value and Stat Calculator

posted by Arty2 on Sunday, 2014-09-21 00:26 (GMT+03:00)

It's been exactly 10 years and 6 days, but I clearly remember the day of the IV Calculator’s inception. Well, the online–only version was a couple of months older. Since then it's been updated for 19 games across 4 generations and translated to several languages. The latest update incorporates all hidden legendaries and forms from Pokémon X & Y, including Diance, Volcanion and Hoopa.

Last but not least, the calculator has made the jump to GitHub, where detailed documentation and extra material shall follow; when time allows it. That of course means, that you can Pull Requests if you spot a bug or come up with an improvement.

Pokeball Pattern Vivillon

The Pokéball Pattern Vivillon is to distributed worldwide this month. For those of you in North America, the event is already live and runs for a really limited time, until August 12th. The European and Australian event will run from August 29th to September 8th. This special Vivillon knows the moves Stun Spore, Gust, Light Screen and Struggle Bug. If someone has already obtained this Vivillon in the Pokémon Center in France or GamesCom in Germany then they won't be able to get it again. As a remainder, the event is still running in Japan until the end of the month.

A new video has been uploaded to the Official Pokémon account on YouTube. It confirms the leaks from this week; Mega Metagross and Pikachu cosplay.

First and foremost, it shows the first 5 Gym leaders as well as 2 members, Sidney and Phoebe, of the Elite Four. Secondly, Super Secret-bases couldn't be absent from the video, since it's one of the most hyped and, of course, fun features ever created in the Pokémon franchise. Thirdly, Mega Metagross is confirmed to have Tough Claws as its ability as well as greater overall stats.

I guess it's going to be a really tough opponent, right Steven?

Have fun watching the video:

Mega Metagross revealed in CoroCoro

posted by NM2 on Thursday, 2014-07-10 17:22 (GMT+03:00)

Scans of the August issue of CoroCoro have started appearing online revealing another Mega Evolution for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. This time it's Mega Metagross, which Steven will use. Steven will use his Mega Brooch to mega evolve his Metagross. The second scan also shows some returning Gym Leaders and Elite 4 such as Roxanne, Wattson, Flannery, Norman and Sidney. Not much can be seen from the (quite blurry) pictures we currently have but we will update the post as more surface so keep checking back!

Update: Two new scans have emerged. The first one shows the new Pokédex, obviously inspired by the Gameboy Advance console as well as something like a dressed up Pikachu called "Madame Pikachu". You can also see that Pokémon Amie returns in OR/AS. The second scan only shows Brawly's new design.

Super-Secret Bases in OR/AS

The Secret Is Out on Super-Secret Bases!

Create and hang out in your own Super-Secret Base in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire!

Super-Secret Bases are an awesome new way to express your creativity and join up with friends in the upcoming Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire games. Create a Secret Base that’s all your own, including selecting and placing Decorations however you like. You can use Decorations to create tricks in your Secret Base, decide the rules for what kind of Pokémon battles are allowed there, and make it like your very own Pokémon Gym! Then get ready for other players to come and challenge you!

Using communication features, it’s easy to connect with other players around the world to share your Secret Bases with one another. When you visit another player’s Secret Base, that base’s members will be hanging out there. You can talk to them or even battle them! If you find base owners that you like, you can scout them as one of your Secret Pals and bring them back to your own Secret Base. Once you’ve become Secret Pals with someone, you can continue to have Pokémon battles against them, and also have your Pal use “special skills” to support you on your adventure.

Another fun aspect of Super-Secret Bases is a capture-the-flag activity. Examine the flag beside the Secret PC in another player’s Secret Base to obtain it! You can take one flag per day from each base visited. Visit lots of Secret Bases and collect lots of flags to improve your team’s rank and get rewards, including increasing the skills of your Secret Pals. Flag colors will change based on a team’s rank, so you can tell another team’s rank at a glance—and others can tell yours!

You can share your Super-Secret Base with Trainers all over the world! Symbolize your Secret Base with a QR Code. With a QR Code, you can get the Secret Base of a particular player you’ve been wanting to visit.

To help you get started with Super-Secret Bases, you’ll meet Secret Base Expert Aarune. Aarune and his Flygon are world travelers, bursting with excitement about the Secret Base culture in the Hoenn region. This enthusiastic adventurer will teach you all about the fun of Secret Bases during your journey.

Look forward to building your own Super-Secret Base—and visiting your friends’ Super-Secret Bases—in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, launching this November!
