New trailer provides further details about Primal Groudon and Kyogre
The English name of Primal Groudon's Ability is Desolate Land; this Ability creates extremely harsh sunlight, which causes Water-type moves to fail in addition to the effects of intense sunlight. The English name of Primal Kyogre's Ability is Primordial Sea; this Ability creates oppressive heavy rain, which causes Fire-type moves to fail in addition to the effects of rain. Both Abilities create weather that lasts as long as Primal Groudon or Kyogre remains on the field, but will disappear as soon as that Pokémon is switched out. They also cause the moves Rain Dance, Sunny Day, Sandstorm and Hail to fail, and the Abilities Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream and Snow Warning to fail to activate.
Precipice Blades is the English name of a new move which can hit multiple opponents that only Groudon can use. Origin Pulse is the English name of a new move which can hit multiple opponents that only Kyogre can use.
Wally wears the Mega Pendant, which he uses to Mega Evolve his Gallade. Mega Gallade's Attack and Speed both increase.
Team Magma aims to expand the amount of land to increase the amount of land available to human civilization. Maxie wears the Mega Glasses, which he uses to Mega Evolve his Camerupt. Most of Mega Camerupt's stats increase uniformly, but its Speed decreases.
Team Aqua aims to expand to seas to take back the aquatic habitats taken by human expansion. Archie wears the Mega Anchor, which he uses to Mega Evolve his Sharpedo. All of Mega Sharpedo's stats increase, although its Attack is mentioned specifically to increase.
The demo for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be available internationally. Players must enter a download code to obtain it from the eShop (details on how to obtain the code have not yet been announced), but it can be played an unlimited number of times. The demo takes place in Mossdeep City, where the player encounters Steven Stone, and later battles both Tabitha and Matt in a Double Battle.
Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will use Pokémon Bank and the Pokémon Global Link. Like for Japanese games, the Shiny Beldum distribution ends on January 14, 2015 for American, PAL and Korean region games.
