[BLOG] Game Trailer: Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire—The Battle over Land and Sea!

Nintendo and the team behind Pokemon have released a new trailer relating to Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby, and this time there's a bunch of new Pokemon-related things to show off!

The trailer reveals the powers of the Primal forms for both Groudon and Kyogre; both gaining the form through a change called Primal Reversion and having an Ability that is just a powered-up version of their regular ones. Primal Groudon becomes a dual Ground/Fire type and has an Attack stat boost, and its Ability Desolate Land stops all weather changing moves and Abilities from working as well as rendering all Water-type moves useless until Primal Groudon is switched out. Primal Kyogre does not have a type change but gets an increased Special Attack stat; its Ability Primordial Sea stops all weather-changing abilities and moves from working and cancels all Fire-type moves.

The trailer also introduces three new Mega evolutions - Camerupt, Sharpedo and Gallade.

Camerupt is the 'signature' Pokemon for Team Magma and its Mega evolution merges its two volcano-humps into one larger grey peak, covers some of the Pokemon's body in armour that resembles cooled magma, gives Camerupt longer fur that shields its legs and a little more cooled magma armour on its forehead and hooves. It also looks angrier than usually. It doesn't change types and gains the Ability Sheer Force which removes added effects for a greater damage potential.

Sharpedo is the 'signature' Pokemon for Team Aqua and its Mega evolution stripes the majority of the Pokemon's body, extends its nose to be almost as long as its body and moves the white underbelly a little further upwards around its fins. It also doesn't change types and gains the Ability Strong Jaw which ups the damage of bite moves by 50%.

Gallade will most likely be the final form of your secondary rival Wally's original partner Ralts in the game. Mega Gallade loses some of its green colouration around the top half of its torso and arms, and gains two skin-flaps from the back of its neck that resemble a cape. The blade-like parts of its arms are replaced with red plate-like additions, the red plates on its chest seem to have shrunk and its 'ears' seem longer. It also doesn't change its typing but gains the Ability Inner Focus which prevents flinching.
Yes that's Minecraft-me in my av. Done by Reiu who is damn talented!
