Game Features


If you played the old version game before you will become familiarized easily to the game because of the structure is just the same. Collect and train your pokemon so you will become stronger and for you to face other pokemon in the region. Visit Pokemon’s Gym and get 8 badge then challenge the master trainer called Elite Four, the difference is that you will need to find the special stone that makes your pokemon to mega evolutions.

In addition to megas Pokemon Omega Ruby gameplay introduced the primal revision of Pokemon, it has a similarity to megas but temporarily transforming a pokemon and powering it up. It just revert the pokemon to prehistoric version of itself. While some of pokemon can’t undergo primal revision it is more considered and interesting than mega evolution because lore already supported it and we know that every pokemon games hide a fossil that can restore ancient pokemon to bring life. Players even come up with theories how a certain ancient pokemon turned in newer pokemon over time.

You will encounter the primal revision thru the story of the game. The villain Team Rocket (Team Magma in this version) who want to revive the ancient pokemon and use it to transform the world through their power. While the version enemy is neat, and the primal revision is added to the game. These elements in Pokemon Omega Ruby is somewhat underwhelming. The game never explored mean fully primal revision, lore-wise and the villains were written in simple that players simply expect in a children’s game. The heart of the game is about exploration, not just hidden pokemon but the region is hiding some secrets like items, nooks, underwater pathway and crannies were you can build your own base. Most of the players have the “gotta catch them all” motto not just to complete the pokedex and to become a strong trainer but also to learn more about the pokemon themselves.

If you want to get those legendary pokemon in previous version you have to work for it. For example talk to everyone in the game that maybe gives some clue about the Legendary Pokemon that you are hunting. The world of Pokemon Omega Ruby is mysterious and a lot of things to discover.
