Prepare for an epic adventure exploring a world filled with Pokemon in Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
- Your adventure takes place in Hoenn, a region that consists of a main island that stretches widely from east to west, along with countless small islets that dot the deep blue sea around it. A live volcano steams constantly in the heart of this green-covered island. Look forward to a region rich with natural beauty, a variety of Pokemon, and extraordinary people!
- During your journey through Hoenn, you'll be able to build and invite friends to visit your personal Super-Secret Base! Come up with your own Secret Base design, including selecting and placing Decorations however you like. Then, using communication features, connect easily with other players all around the world to share your Secret Bases with one another and talk or even battle! If you find other base owners that you like, you can make them your Secret Pal and bring them back to your own Base.
- You can also use Super-Secret Bases to play a capture-the-flag activity. Examine the flag beside the Secret PC in another player's Secret Base to obtain it! You can take one flag per day from each base visited. Visit lots of Secret Bases and collect lots of flags to improve your team's rank and get rewards, including increasing the skills of your Secret Pals.
- Meet many interesting people and Pokemon Trainers as you travel across the Hoenn region, including Pokemon Professor Birch, who runs the Pokemon Lab in Littleroot Town. With him you will have your first meeting with the Pokemon that will become your partner on your journey, and a new bond will be born. You'll also encounter incredibly tough Trainers during your journey. Visit Pokemon Gyms, where Pokemon Trainers gather and Gym Leaders stand ready for Trainers to challenge them
- The Pokemon-Amie feature, which debuted in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, enables players to get closer to their Pokemon by petting them, playing games with them, and feeding them. You can play with the Pokemon on your team at any time using Pokemon-Amie the more you care for your Pokemon in these ways, the deeper your bond will become. As your Pokemon become more affectionate toward you, they will be more likely to avoid attacks in battle, land critical hits on opponents, and perform more admirably than before.
- During your adventure, you'll be able to create your very own Secret Base. Work on making a space that is all your own, just the way you like it. But that's not even the best part! Using communication features, you'll be able to easily connect with other players all around the world to share your Secret Bases with one another.
- In Pokemon Contest Spectaculars, your Pokemon will compete to see who has the most appeal! There are five kinds of contests that you can choose to enter: Coolness, Beauty, Cuteness, Cleverness, and Toughness. Your Pokemon will be judged on its appeal based on one of these five conditions. Choose a contest condition in which your Pokemon excels, and enter it in one of the corresponding contests!
- Enhance your Pokemon's ability to perform by feeding it Pokeblocks made from Berries. The type of Pokeblock you make is based on the color and variety of Berries you choose. When you feed them to your Pokemon, its contest conditions will improve according to the type of Pokeblock it eats!
- Get even closer to solving the mysteries of Mega Evolution as more Pokemon gain this powerful ability and Experience the awe of Primal Reversion, a new, extremely powerful transformation undergone by Legendary Pokemon Groudon and Kyogre.
