Now that Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are released in North America, Australia, Japan, and South Korea, players of these games may want some help getting through the Hoenn region!
Marriland.com is proud to offer the ongoing Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Walkthrough to help guide you through your adventure! You can find it in either the ΩRαS (Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire) or the Walkthrough section of the site's navigation, or of course by clicking the previous link. An update like this will be made each time a full badge's worth of content has been written in the walkthrough!
As of now, the entire Stone Badge section of the Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Walkthrough is complete! Be sure to check it out! Don't worry, more sections to the walkthrough will be added, as this is a very high priority project. Additionally, YouTube videos will be produced and eventually embedded into the individual pages to provide extra visuals and guidance (although, at the time of this post, these have not yet been added!).
Be sure to check it out, and check back often to see more updates made to the walkthrough and the rest of the site!
Speaking of which, the site's Pokédex has been updated with Pokémon X/Y data, with Pokémon ΩRαS data to be imported sometime next week. The Team Builder will finally be fixed sometime next week as well for better XY and ΩRαS compatibility.
It's now North America's turn to get in on the fun. That's right: Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are now available in North America!
There have been several midnight launch events through North America to celebrate, and some may not yet have happened due to the wonders of time zones, but since the games are officially available on the east coast, anyone in North America can purchase and download the digital version of Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire from the Nintendo eShop, even if it isn't yet midnight where you are! Just keep in mind that the eShop may be painfully slow due to so many avid Pokémon fans downloading these games as well as Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
Those of you in Europe sadly need to wait another week before Hoenn returns to your region, as these two games launch on the 28th of November over there.
And once you've gotten your game, be sure to check out the ongoing Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire walkthrough being written for Marriland.com! Video coverage will be added to the walkthrough throughout the coming days, so watch for it, but enjoy the written version in the meantime!
To help get everyone psyched for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire's release tomorrow in North America, The Pokémon Company International has released a special animated trailer showing off the starter Pokémon of the Hoenn region, the two player characters (as well as a few other characters from the game), and all of the new Mega Evolutions introduced in the new games!
That's a lot of action and it's all fully animated! Of course, these aren't how the games themselves actually look nor is it the sign of a new Pokémon anime series, but the scenes themselves bring to life all of the new Pokémon and Mega Evolutions you'll find throughout your adventure, which should help make your travels through Hoenn all the more enjoyable!
Though it may be a day early for those of us in North America, due to the magic of time zones, it's now officially November 21st in Australia, New Zealand, and Japan, meaning Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are officially released there!
As such, coverage for the full versions of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will begin today, with the first focus being on the start of the Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Walkthrough for Marriland.com!
After several months of being shrouded in mystery, the location for the 2015 Pokémon World Championships has finally been revealed: Boston, Massachusetts in the USA!
That's right, the lovely city of Boston, MA in the northeast United States will be the home for the 2015 Pokémon World Championships from August 21st–23rd, 2015, for both the Pokémon Trading Card Game as well as the Pokémon Video Game.
Though the post on the official website has since been removed, it did mention the above information while it was posted, in addition to the removal of the Last Chance Qualifier tournament for the Trading Card Game, which gives players who didn't qualify for the invite-only World Championship tournament a chance to earn their entry.
As the post on the official site has been removed, these are all preliminary details until the update is properly made on the official site (in other words, you may want to hold off booking travel arrangements until an official announcement is made), but this should at least offer an idea of what's to come at the end of this year's Pokémon Championship Series.
EDIT: Whoops, presumably it will be on August 21st–23rd instead of the 23rd–25th as previously listed. I've corrected the post accordingly.
A new trailer for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire has been revealed. In this trailer, we given information about the Delta Episode, a new mysterious character Zinnia, Mirage Spots, and much more!
Delta Episode: In the new Delta Episode, The Mossdeep Space Center discover an asteroid to heading for the planet! Players must stop Team Magma and Team Aqua from attacking the Space Center, while at the same time Rayquaza and Deoxys battle in space. That's right! Deoxys is set to appear in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire! Deoxys is a powerful Legendary Pokémon with four formes: Normal Forme, Attack Forme, Defense Forme, and Speed Forme.
Trainers must team up with the Sootopolis City's Gym Leader, Wallace, and the Hoenn region's Champion, Steven, in order to stop the asteroid from colliding with the planet. Another mysterious character, Zinnia, holds secrets and is said to possess the key to the fate of the world. Zinnia wears a Mega Anklet and uses Mega Salamence in battle.
Eon Ticket Distribution: To catch the Legendary Pokémon Latias in Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Latios in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Trainers must have access to the Eon Ticket to travel to Southern Island. Players can acquire this via Mystery Gift on the title menu. Codes for the Eon Ticket will be distributed to Play! Pokémon Organizers as well as North American StreetPass Communities and will be available November 21. Once redeemed, the Eon Ticket can be shared with players via the StreetPass function on BuzzNav.
Mirage Spot Legendary Pokémon: Using Soar with Mega Latios or Mega Latias, players can encounter a wide variety of Legnedary Pokémon, not previously available in Pokémon X or Pokémon Y, including Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Uxie, Mesprit, Azelf, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus, Cresselia, and Heatran. These encounters vary based on the game played.
The Legendary Titans: Mirage Spots aren't the only method to obtaining Legendary Pokémon. Regirock, Regice, and Registeel, the Legendary titans of the Hoenn region, can be found in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire after deciphering ancient messages throughout Hoenn. Once all three Legendary titans are captured, and other various conditions are met, players can encounter and capture the mighty Regigigas.
Special Demo Version Transfers: Trainers can send Pokémon captured in the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Demo to the full version of the game once released, including Mega Glalie. Players can also transfer Diancie from Pokémon X and Pokémon Y to Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, and obtain the Diancite when they do so! Diancie can be obtained via downlaod code at GameStop.
Pokémon Global Link: Poké Miles and Medals earned in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y as well as Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will allow Trainers to play Mine Cart Adventure. Mine Cart Adventure is a new Pokémon Global Link feature that will be available to play when Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are released. In this new attraction, players navigate carts on winding tracks to collect Berries and win a variety of Poké Balls.
NOTE: This is breaking news! Be sure to check back frequently for updates.
The latest issue of CoroCoro, the last preceding the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, has been revealed. In the issue, we are shown that 18 various Legendary Pokémon are available in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, including Deoxys. Mega Rayquaza will battle Deoxys at some point in the game. Mega Rayquaza and Deoxys take their fight to beyond even the sky into space! It is said that Deoxys appears in a sequence of the game called Episode Delta.
Also revealed is an alteration to the story of the original Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire games. A new character called Higana, who battles with the Pokémon Whismur and Mega Salamence. It is said she plays a key role in the story.
After months of suspense, the Mythical Pokémon Diancie is finally making its debut this afternoon on Cartoon Network at 2:30pm Pacific and Eastern Time(1:30pm Central Time) in the newest Pokémon movie, Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction!
Before the movie airs, though, you'll also be able to watch five select Pokémon episodes from Diamond and Pearl: Galactic Battles, Diamond and Pearl: Sinnoh League Victors, and Black and White: Rival Destinies to get you pumped for the newest movie as well as Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. These episodes start at 12:00pm PST/EST(1:00pm CST) and run until the movie airs later in the afternoon.
Excited for the movie? Just can't wait? Well, you're in luck, because there's an exclusive short film on the official website that you can watch in the meantime: Diancie: Princess of the Diamond Domain! Head on over to the official website to watch it there!
Details on how to obtain the elusive Eon Ticket in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire have been revealed today for both North America as well as the United Kingdom. The Eon Ticket is a special event item that allows players to visit the Southern Island where they can catch Latios in Alpha Sapphire or Latias in Omega Ruby.
For North American Pokémon players, serial tickets to unlock the Eon Ticket will be given out by Play! Pokémon organizers across over 1,000 official Pokémon League locations, as well as at certain StreetPass events. Once unlocked by a player, not only do they receive the Eon Ticket for themselves, but the Eon Ticket is also automatically shared via the BuzzNav feature of the PokéNav to other nearby players who haven't yet gotten one (so long as both players have StreetPass enabled on the BuzzNav), which can be picked up from an attendant in a Pokémon Center. As more players meet up at events or just while StreetPassing around, the Eon Ticket will become more and more available throughout North America and even the rest of the world.
Pokémon fans in the United Kingdom have an even more exclusive way to get their hands on the elusive Eon Ticket. Starting on November 13th, you'll be able to check out PokemonEonTicket.com for details on a special launch event taking place in London, England where fifteen lucky Pokémon fans attending will not only be gifted with the Eon Ticket to spread across their hometown (and eventually the entire UK and even into the rest of Europe), not only will these fans score some cool Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire merchandise, but they'll also have a chance to meet GAME FREAK Director Junichi Masuda! The launch event takes place in London on November 29th, and, as mentioned earlier, you'll be able to find more details on PokemonEonTicket.com starting November 13th.
While only fifteen people receiving the Eon Ticket may seem rather restrictive, keep in mind that these fifteen people will be able to spread the Eon Ticket to other Pokémon fans in the audience, and then all of these Pokémon fans will be able to share the ticket as well, so it shouldn't be too long before someone with the Eon Ticket makes it to your area.
EDIT: My apologies, the Eon Pokémon received through the Eon Ticket were incorrectly listed. This post has been updated to reflect the correct information.
Special news from the Nintendo Direct today, there will be a Greninja distribution event. If you have Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Pokémon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire registered on Club Nintendo, you will receive this unique Greninja via serial code. You must have both games registered between November 21st 2014 and January 20th 2015 and you will receive the serial code for Greninja between December 9th 2014 to January 29th 2015. The moves for Greninja are inspired by its moveset in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U, which are Water Shuriken, Hydro Pump, Shadow Sneak, and Substitute. There is no news as to what nature or ability it will have, but it will be a quick way to get the Froakie family in OR/AS!
As of now, this Greninja might be specific to Japanese versions of the game, as it was shown only in the Japanese Nintendo Direct. If this Greninja becomes available in other regions, we'll be sure to let you know when that time comes.
What are your thoughts on this distribution? Let us know in the comments section!
