I'm not really fond of the names, but I'm glad this is finally happening. I knew it'd come after XY.

"some areas also playable in 3D"

Oh ffs Game Freak, with all the money you gain from the Pok?mon franchise, can't you put some money into getting better developers or at least improve the skill of the current team? X/Y was far from graphically impressing and yet having 3D enabled would result in awful fps drop, and they didn't even bother to implement it in the overworld.

Not getting this crap.

I remember playing Pokemon Ruby and Emerald as a kid, I'm so gonna buy this one! I'd caught chicken pox around that time and didn't go to school for some days, and since I had played all my DS games I started playing my brother's Pokemon Emerald and finished it

man i just remember the summer days when i would play my gba outside with sapphire version.....i get so many feels just remembering those times....more nostalgic than gold and silver or red and blue.

The tentative packaging looks really awesome. Hope they keep it that way. It's the closest thing i'll get to colored cartridges (still don't know why they stopped doing that).

I hope they bring back the gameboy music player so I can listen to the old tunes throughout the region. In addition to that I hope they do a good job remaking the music too. Some songs in Heart gold just did not sound that great remade (ex. Goldenrod city. So bad compared to the original.) And other songs sounded a lot better than the original (Ecruteak city).

Although Black was my favorite game, Hoenn is my favorite region. It has so many interesting places.

I knew it, I (and many other people) totally called it! Ruby was my first Pokemon game, and I played it to death. I usually go with the "cooler color" of the spectrum when it comes to Pokemon games, but I'll get Omega Ruby for my childhood's sake.

I should be super excited for this but the names, man, they're just plain bad. I like the cosmetic change that emphasizes the letter on each legendary but I don't see how the correlation can go any farther. Maybe Hoenn is really Greece, they look somewhat similar.

*Gulps*
Gonna trick mine out with Iwata posters


Third gen is the only gen I never played (For various reasons) and as such, I held off until the remakes.
I was rewarded.
So now for my opinions.

Positive:
I'm looking forward to seeing some of the locales with the 3ds power. The soundtrack is bound to be ace, with live orchestra, and the eventual megas will be fun to use. Arceus be willing Battle Frontier returns along with secret bases and move tutors to make this game great.

Neutral: I wonder if the description on a Pokemon transferred from Hoenn to Sinnoh to Unova to Kalos to Hoenn again changes to "Returned home after a long journey" ? Does AZ have anything to do with Alpha and Omega? Will the rivals be better?

Negative: After X and Y, I'm worried about a few things. Mainly the framerate being ass (Which ruined triple and rotation battles for me...my favorite battle style) Hopefully this game can maintain a steady 30 fps. As well, I'm worried about a lack of 3D in the overworld, as X/Y gambled out of it. Also the lack of a substantial post-game will annoy me as well.

Finishing thoughts: I am hopeful for this game, but there are a few qualms that move me from optimistic to watchful. Still going to get Alpha Sapphire though.

Alpha Steven and Omega Wallace

The names are alright, Greece still lives on in our hea- Pocket Monsters

Anyone else noticed the trailer said you could explore a new world? What if we're already getting a new region, with more new Pokemon because people were complaining about only getting about 70ish in X and Y?! It just doesn't feel right if it didn't have Hoenn, my theory is that we will be able to explore TWO regions!

Spoiler!

I was thinking of an atlantis thing. Since Gen 3 was big on diving, what if they put in a whole new area big enough to seem like a new region underwater. They could probably even add more gyms that way. "Explore a new world" could be use dive and discover a new land that was hidden from the world. they could have outdated technology and be primitive.

Though when I used a girl character the FPS drops aren't really noticeable unlike its male counterpart where you'll be stressin' out with the 3D on...

Iwata confirmed at the investor meeting that they are straight up remakes like frlg and hgss. I'm completely fine with that. Iw would have bee good either way.

Well of course not, but this means it isnt going to be an entire new story line and unrelated to RSE completely. I'm expecting it to be in vein of what hgss were, except even more stuff added. I just hope the content is bursting like hgss too since xy definitely werent.

I'm all for a remake. I didn't really play this Gen at all. I feel like this gen was the most skipped set out of them. At least for my age group. Somewhere around high school, pokemon sort of disappeared. RSE was just unfortunately timed for me.

It was 4th gen for my group that was most skipped on, and then 5th gen really brought it back.

Same here. I actually sold my gameboy after gen 3. But after a while i missed pokemon and sold all my games to get a DS and pokemon pearl. Glad I came back. But I'm sure I would've come back anyway for XY and the RSE remakes.

In regards to the extra things they could add, I really liked that triathlon in HGSS. It was one of the best series of minigames for any game I've played. I hope ORAS adds something as fun as that, or they could even bring it back in 3d! However......what if.......they go the Kirby 3D route......and add a Fighters mode.......and have a smash-type fighting minigame for all pokemon? Ok....I know that sounds crazy, moving along....

It is sevii Islands. I think I heard somewhere that they wanted the sevii islands in the original.

As long as they retain Secret Bases and Battle Frontier, we should be fine.

I wouldn't mind seeing a post-completion island though.

Calling it now, secret bases can be shared via streetpass.

If battle frontier has online then this game should be perfect.

That would just be sooooo ideal, sciz. Ev training, or just training in general would be godlike if it is the same as it was back in the originals. Have one of your friends set up a full team of lv 100 auidinos.

This "dramatic" story, though? Wally will die at the climax.

You guys keep saying that secret bases would be perfect for streetpass.

Remember that the last game didn't even have the ability to save teams for streetpass and battle other teams gained this way.

I thought that idea was perfect/incredibly obvious too :/

Well R/S/E did have a version of StreetPass called Record Mixing, which essentially allowed players to share Secret Bases. I mean, if this is a remake, I don't see how they'd forget about the feature that easily.

I wonder if they polished the graphics at all or if they just straight up changed assets to Hoenn looks. it'll be nice to see what they've changed from XY. and I hope we get a taste of the music

They've probably had to remake Hoenn entirely.

I also just remembered that the previous remakes had some sort of extra gift in the packaging, a peripheral: Wireless adapter for FRLG and pedometer/tomagotchi for HGSS. I wonder if these remakes will have anything. 3DS has pretty much everything it needs but the only thing i can think of them adding that would be an AR card or something.

Looking forward to that gameplay tomorrow!

Like most people, I'm pretty excited for this. I've been playing Pok?mon since Red/Blue came out, but I didn't start getting really serious until I played Sapphire, so Gen III probably holds the most memories for me.

It would be cool if you got a ribbon or something for transferring a pokemon from the original rse games to the remakes.

The trumpet based music of the game was really good but the GBA speakers couldn't do it justice. I hope the music gets a nice full remake so that I can listen to that epic Steven track one more time!

That's what I think. Something about those chiptunes makes the music so fantastic to me. But I've heard some remixes and predictions on what updated Hoenn music sounds like and some people made it sound really good. I heard one song with the X and Y sound font and it didn't sound too great.

Agreed, Hope they perfect the Soundtrack this time, if they can't, well add a trumpet(GBA)Player

Know what? Assuming these are remakes of Ruby and Sapphire, there are a few extra things I hope for aside from retaining Secret Bases and Battle Frontier.

  1. Wifi Pokemon Contests: This seems easy to accomplish. Preferably, I'd like the R/S style contests
  2. More areas to explore: Kind of a no-brainer for Pokemon games, but think Hoenn still has plenty of room to spare. I always felt that Hoenn did the best in terms of exploration, but I think it could do more with the diving mechanic. Adding additional islands is cool too.
  3. Retain the set Elite 4 order: Okay so I never got B/W or B2/W2, but I did get X and I can easily say that choosing the order of Elite Four members you get the fight is dumb. Really hoping they keep the order of Sydney > Phoebe > Glacia > Drake
  4. Juan is Sootopolis City's gym leader, and Steven is the champion. What about Wallace? We can make him an optional trainer battle, and have him be a challenger in Pokemon contests. Only reason I don't want him as champion is because the player has been exposed to so much Water-types by that point (especially if they're playing Aqua)
  5. If Battle Frontier returns, revamp Battle Palace and Battle Dome. This is somewhat of a minor issue, but those two facilities were always pretty confusing
  6. If Secret Bases return, add a StreetPass function to share them. Like in R/S/E, you also get to fight the team the trainer was carrying during the StreetPass.
  7. Carry over character customization. And if they do carry this feature over, give the guys more clothing options - Sheesh!

RSE are the only games in the series to have interviews, right?

Perhaps they could try to flesh that out somehow using PR Videos as a base.

Or maybe go so far as to update TVs in general. Like, actually being able to view stuff on the screen, having different channels (e.g. trainer interview channel, channel that plays back videos of worldwide battles, maybe a channel with Game Freak produced content on, say, team building, etc.), that sort of thing.

I also hope they keep the set elite four from the original games. That is one of the few things I straight up disliked from bw/bw2, and x/y. Not that would really be that challenging anyway, but it at least makes things more intense.

Well the reason prefer going through the Elite 4 in a set order is because of the way their teams are designed.

Phoebe and Glacia, who are second and third respectively, weaken your team passively through passive means - Pressure and Hail. The Walrein in Glacia's team also used Sheer Cold, which is the only unresisted OHKO move. Drake and Steven remained as powerhouses to finish you off.

I hope Steven stays the champion and Wallace stays the gym leader. (don't wanna see Juan anywhere in sight)

I never played Emerald. And I'm pretty sure I hadn't finished Ruby when I traded it for FireRed.

I don't like May/Sapphire's look much, and her legs are like super long. wish she had her previous bandana look. Maybe there's customization in this game?

And I wonder what they are looking at in this screenshot:

Even though giving Lightning Rod to a Pokemon 4x defensive against Electric attacks is frustrating, I'm so hyped to see Mega Sceptile get Electrify through breeding with Helioptile. Make it happen, Gamefreak.

In any case, Mega Sceptile is the ultimate Rotom-W counter we've been looking for. Switch him in on a predictable Volt Switch and you've got a free Special Attack boost and Rotom-W doesn't switch out. Amazing.

Swift Swim on Mega Swampert is disappointing. Regenerator would have given Swampert the recovery he so desperately needs, and even Hydration would be pretty nice. Intimidate or Huge Power would have fit his new design well. I wasn't expecting Sap Sipper but that would have made Mega Swampert so much more appealing.

I'm not sure whether steven being fully revealed makes him less or more likely as the champion vs wallace. Diantha was shown early for xy, but just not revealed as champion.

Also, what's with that dark area at the top? hope that's something like Platinum's reverse world or post game content.

(also, trumpets back? Based on the trailer music it seems like they aren't removing the trumpets which is great for me. Sounds like they'll do a good job of redoing the music. I don't want to hear anything like Xy's music)

That map looks very nice indeed and appears very true to the original. I can see one additional island in the ocean that was originally missing from ruby and sapphire and was an event-only island used for catching either latios or lotias in emerald, with it being shown I imagine there will be more attention towards two of them in this one. (Now if only Nintendo would play off the old spaceship rumor about getting Jirachi lol)

I just realised that ORAS will not have rollarskates, and rollarskates are one of the reasons why I hate X/Y so much because they are on 24/7.

I am finally excited for these games now, cool. (Ignoring mega evolutions, i pretend those don't exist)

I'm glad trumpets seem to be back. The trailer music was finesse. I remember how epic was fighting the legendaries with that awesome drum intro.

My only guess as for why the delay in Europe is that Nintendo wants to try and reduce the to-be massive amount of traffic on their servers when the game does release. As to why it's JUST Europe and not North America as well, I have no idea (although I am not one to complain lol)

Already pre-ordered. I really need to put some more time into X, but I've just been glued to AC:NL.

Only concern I have with this game is how similar it looks to X and Y. I guess that is to be expected. To be fair, I haven't seen many videos yet so it might not be as similar as I think. Still, it's Ruby and Sapphire remade. What's not to love? Let the nostalgia begin!

Pretty sure it's because the rating system (PEGI) for European games is incredibly strict and they have to make adjustments accordingly.

This person explained it well:

This has happened with the Australian Bureau of Classification before in relation to Pokemon too, due to ?elements of gambling? in the Game Corners (in HGSS if I recall) which pushed that release back in Aus until a version that would fit under the specific rating Gamefreak and Nintendo wanted was given to the board and approved for sale.
Here ya go.

It's the most reasonable explanation I've heard but take it with a small grain of salt as it isn't official or anything.

Didn't like the trailer. I understand the real reason they decided to show off the starters was to show the Mega Evolutions, but it doesn't really show anything new from previous trailers

I think Kalos was bigger, but they could easily expand Hoenn if they wanted to. I prefer the old maps where there weren't central hub cities and Luminose

It seems they did expand it a bit, and I'm not sure what that ominous dark purple building is in the top-middle of the map (but then again I never played R/S/E so maybe it's an after story thing). It could also just be the new artstyle compensating for how large Hoenn actually is.

Also just saw that Mega-Sceptile cuts off its tail in battle. Interesting.

They've had to redo Hoenn completely for the 3DS. So while it's a similar map it probably will feel much bigger.

I'm really surprised with all the hype about Diancie. Hopefully it will actually unlock some additional content aside from a new area for itself/another legendary Pokemon to be captured in any of the to-be four games.

Been listening to so many remixes of hoenn songs lately. I really need to hear what they will do with it.

Can't wait for the next Corocoro!

Even though this was expected, I'm pretty relieved. The custom gym thing is very interesting. Cant wait to see what people come up with.

One thing checked off my check list. All that's left is the Battle frontier and how the music will sound.

Secret Bases were practically confirmed already when they released a screenshot a while back that showed a familiar hole in the wall. However, I'd be lying if I said I'm not seriously relieved. Now I just need the Battle Frontier and contests.

Players have been creating mono-type teams for a while now and considering themselves "gym leaders" for online battles, so it's nice to see that we might be able to make our own actual little gyms within our bases. I'm excited to see what people can come up with!

Can't wait to see what the variety of trick items are for bases. Hopefully some good stuff in there. I want to make people work for that flag.

I hope they take out that hole in the floor that required you to waste a plank just to access the rest of the base.

The game is definitely looking gorgeous and it looks like an effort was made to make the environments look even more different from kalos. also, it looks like the camera angle has been panned out more making the characters look smaller, which is a good thing to me. also, seeing the charizard, venasaur, and blastoise dolls makes it look like battle frontier is confirmed.

my guess for the pokemon to show up in the next corocoro mega scoop: zangoose, seviper, flygon, milotic, salamence, and lati@s

Kinda late, but Mega Alteria, Mega Lopunny, and Mega Salamence look terrible.

At least Mega Alteria and Mega Salamence look fun to use

Mega Algeria doesn't look too bad. And if it gets decent defense boosts I'll be satisfied.

salamence's wings man....i already thought the original one had odd wings but now the rebel alliance is strong in this one. i have hope for mega flygon but im afraid of what they will do with its design now.

and way to go Gamefreak for showing milotic in the recently leaked part of the page that was missing. some ppl like me actually thought there was a 4th mega to be shown but you go and show a regular milotic, which a lot of people want. hopefully there is a mega milotic tho. rocker brendan looks cool imo

Mega Flygon should really happen. It would cause the games to triple in sales.

Same here. it would be great if they gave us the option of wearing the costumes outside, maybe change in the secret bases or something. but i hope that's at least an option if customization is gone

I'd assume those costumes would be for contests only. Darn you guys who love the default designs because they match the setting better!

Mega Slowbro looks okay. The concept is pretty funny at least. Shell Armor isn't the best ability but you could take advantage of it with Amnesia and Withdraw.

Fairy type is really starting to annoy me though. The classification for what becomes Fairy type is too ambiguous. Marill is part fairy but not Pikachu? BS, Gamefreak is just too scared to retcon their mascot. Granbull became pure Fairy while Audino remained pure Normal? What's the reasoning behind that? And now they're slapping Fairy type on Altaria and Audino in the most predictable way. Altaria literally lengthened its tail and added some clouds to become Fairy type. It could have become a storm cloud with Dragon/Dark or Dragon/Electric but they took the easy way out. Audino added a few bells and whistles and now it's Fairy type. Point is, I ****ing hate Fairy type and all that it stands for.

Megabro made me laugh out loud.

I take the opposite view point to you in every respect. I think the light application of fairy types to old pokemon has been very respectful. Only nine lines have had the type added retroactively instead of slapping it on everything that could possibly be considered a fairy, nor does that need to be done... It's not quite the same but I can't help but think of the many people who seem to think adding dragon type to everything would be a great move. Overkill on retroactive type changes would have been a far worse choice in my opinion.

As far as Altaria is concerned I think fairy typing suits it down to the ground, given how floaty and ethereal it looks. When I look at the difference between Audino and Mega Audino I see it as a case of it awakening to its power. In both cases it doesn't feel particularly arbitrary, I would even say it makes sense.

Don't hate them because they're beautiful~

Hate them because they're Mr. Mime.

Audino better boost its defenses only because Fairy/Normal is a godsend for it. I have one ready already because Audino is one of my favorite gen V Pokemon. Scizor is right though in how the designs could have had more spectacle to them. But I feel that Audino makes sense for fairy.

I WILL SAY HOWEVER that I thought these were fakes when I first saw them (Facebook) so I can understand people's disappointment. Megabro looks like a hilarious joke.

Apparently Mega Audino's defense and special defense are said to "sharply rise" while Mega slowbro's defense and special attack rise. Was hoping for a special defense rise but that's what amnesia is for I guess.

I think it's okay for old Pokemon to receive Fairy type. I just don't like Gamefreak's inconsistency with it. Clefairy is Fairy, Jigglypuff is Fairy/Normal, and Chansey is Normal. Is there really any way of explaining those specific type combinations? Clefairy has fairy in its name, but other than that, you could easily give them any of those three type combos.

I don't really see an inconsistency, nor why the differences in typing should have to be explained. While they may have similar design features they are completely separate lines and will have different characteristics. Other than all being pink and frilly there is nothing I can see that should qualify them as having the same type(s).

In general, Pokemon designs are strongly associated with typing. Take one look at Lanturn and it's obviously Water/Electric. Houndoom is clearly Dark/Fire. What does a Fairy Pokemon look like? It's obviously not just "pink and frilly" because we have Gardevoir, Mawile, Whimsicott and others as Fairy types. The description of being small and somewhat humanoid doesn't work either as we have Togekiss, Klefki, Carbink, and Xerneas.

The number of Pokemon lines that would be plausible as Fairy types is ridiculous and raises the question of why the classification is even necessary.

I'll list some of them: Pikachu, Oddish, Meowth, Gastly, Chansey, Tangela, Jynx, Bellossom, Sudowoodo, Politoed, Jumpluff, Sunflora, Misdreavus, Dunsparce, Teddiursa, Miltank, Celebi, Skitty, Sableye, Plusle/Minun, Volbeat/Illumise, Roselia, Gulpin, Spoink, Spinda, Milotic, Castform, Banette, Chimecho, Snorunt, Clamperl, Luvdisc, Latios/Latias, Jirachi, Pachirisu, Cherubi, Spiritomb, Uxie/Mesprit/Azelf, Cresselia, Manaphy, Shaymin, Victini, Audino, Lilligant, Maractus, Garbodor, Cinccino, Gothitelle, Vanillite, Cryogonal, Meloetta.

In the vast majority of cases I would agree, but there are many examples of when this isn't the case.

To use your example of houndoom, looking at the way it's designed there's no immediate evidence of fire. It's demonic in its appearance, and I can see someone that doesn't know the pokemon reaching immediately for dark type but not necessarily fire. Fire is certainly an option, but for potential additional typing; the ridges on its body and the bangles on its legs look like they could even be associated with steel. It feels more like houndoom's design has become associated with fire type over time, rather than that being immediately and obviously apparent. I can see that someone familiar with the pokemon would find it very hard to see it any other way.

Gliscor is one of my favourite examples of confused typing, it screams poison type but it is nowhere to be seen.

Charizard and Gyarados is a classic case, and many have argued the point over time, both could very easily have had dragon typing attached to them but that was never the case until recently, and who saw Gyarados gaining dark typing?

Groudon's single overwhelming impression is that of fire typing. Drought, Eruption, it seems obvious and primal groudon will fix this but it's not there yet.

Metagross is a living computer with the body of a tank, but why is it psychic?

Jellicent ghost typing, why?

Kangaskhan very often mistaken for ground type by newbies.

What is Girafarig, even? :| Does it have a psychic butt?

I would concede that fairy is extremely versatile, since it can easily be placed on any fantastical creature and feel justified, but I feel like it would be a mistake to do so just because it feels like it should be right. For both the sake of balance and avoiding confusing people with a slew of type changes.

And again, I find it incredibly hard to use the word inconsistent when the justification for appearance based typing is so flimsy. A lot of the pokemon you've listed already have non-normal dual types, and sacrificing one for fairy would be to deny the reason it was given that type in the first place.

Others on your list don't seem like they should be there at all. What about Meowth says fairy? Or Gastly? They're not even in the fairy egg group like Pikachu. Personally I don't even see why pikachu should be considered a candidate for fairy type. I can't disprove your belief but it doesn't feel like it would belong on it.

I'm really looking forward to the remakes it brings back my childhood back when i wasn't allowed to play Pokemon and was to poor to afford it. i would sneak my friends on my DS lite and play the holy S##T out of it. thank you Nintendo for re-making my childhood...

I admit Houndoom was a poor choice, and I agree that many Pokemon have questionable typing. I don't think Gamefreak would be too hesitant to replace an existing type with Fairy. They did it with Togekiss (and Mega Altaria, if that counts).

Had any other type not existed until 6th gen, retyping would have been much more straight forward than it was with Fairy. The fact that there are hundreds of forum threads dedicated to guessing which Pokemon would become Fairy type just proves this.

Not all types are perfect, of course. Dark is a bit shaky in definition and Psychic can mean a variety of things. Fairy takes things to a whole new level, however.

GAME.co.uk
‏@GAMEdigital
Embark on a new adventure with the Pok?mon Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby Steelbook Edition! (Link to preorder online) | (Link to image)
it is the same price as nintendo uk's online store (?40), only ?5 more expensive than regular version

i think if you wanna upgrade all you have to do is go in store and ask to upgrade? i think i might go do that later
edit: its a ?10 preorder, so if you want to go and upgrade you take your receipt and an extra ?5, then ask to upgrade your preorder

Japanese pre-orders also get statues, though theirs looked much better. No steel case, but the color-coded case still looked nice.

NA gets the best preorder gift of all, a nice fresh case containing the 3ds chip for the game ^_^.

The building looked like it, though the surrounding environment looked completely new. If the Battle Frontier is in, they'll confirm it for us I'm sure

i love gallade's cape. reminds me of wallace a bit.

and seeing this and the other new megas, makes me think that all the important characters are getting megas. so probably Aarune, wallace, and elite 4 or frontier brains

If Smash is truly launching the same day as ORAS, Smash U's chances of success are even lower.

LOL are you serious?

I can almost promise you Smash U is going to be one of the top 3 most bought games this holiday season. Especially if they put it in a bundle with the Wii U.

Release dates don't really matter in the long run, It's how well your brand sells. And let's be honest, the smash brand is iconic at this point. So don't worry :3

Mega Rayquaza looks very, snake-like to me. Not that he wasn't always a serpent but I like his original version better. Mega Gallade looks nice too. Guess it sorta made sense considering how it already technically had a mega evolution in it's family.

EDIT: It's gone.

So i decided to do a Nuzlocke of my Omega ruby in the form of Wonder trading, so a wonderlocke. The rules I'm following are:

Catch first pokemon in each new area I discover and must wonder trade it (if pokemon faints or flees, no second chance)
Cant have multiple of one pokemon
If I've already had the pokemon I received in wonder trade it must be wondertraded for something else
Permafaint
No items, only pokemon center visits
No running away
EXP share off

So far, having reached Slateport, my wonder traded team consists of:
Gabite-Lvl 1 (just received) - Tackle, outrage
Shellos (blue)-Lvl 17 - Mudbomb, hidden power, harden, water pulse
Forretress- Lvl 36 (got it extremely early) - Spikes, mirror shot, autotomize, payback
Zigzagoon-Lvl 10 - Tackle, cut, tail whip, sand-attack
Skitty-Lvl10 - Mudbomb, tackle, attract, sing
Honedge-Lvl18 - Pursuit, fury cutter, swords dance, autotomize
