In todays Nintendo Direct conference from E3 it was revealed that Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will launch on November 21st (in the US at least, we are awaiting a UK date). A new trailer was also shown, it can be seen below.
It was also revealed that the Pokémon featured on the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire box art are in fact Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre. Below is a brief description of each of the new transformations.
“ Primal Groudon is brimming with energy, which pours from its body as magma. The magma burns at such an extreme temperature that its body is always shimmering ruby red from the haze of its heat, giving off light in the darkness. Through Primal Reversion, Primal Groudon becomes much larger and adds Fire type to its Ground type, raising the power of Fire-type moves it can learn. Primal Reversion greatly boosts Primal Groudon’s Attack. Its Ability may get a boost during this epic transformation, too.
Primal Kyogre, a Water-type Pokémon, is awash with energy that spills from its body as seawater. Its blue skin shines like a sapphire and is half-translucent like the sea. Primal Reversion greatly boosts Primal Kyogre’s Special Attack. Its Ability also seems to get a boost, although this information cannot yet be confirmed. Primal Kyogre is massive, growing to be more than twice Kyogre’s size.”
