TAKE TO THE SKIES AND SOAR IN POKÉMON OMEGA RUBY AND POKÉMON ALPHA SAPPHIRE
Legendary Pokémon Latios and Latias Mega Evolve and Help Trainers Navigate the Hoenn Region by Air, Special Demo Version Details, New Mega Evolved Pokémon, and Gameplay Features Revealed
BELLEVUE, Wash. – October 14, 2014 – Today, The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced that the Legendary Pokémon Latios can be obtained in Pokémon Omega Ruby while Latias can be obtained in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire when the titles launch November 21 for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. These high-flying Dragon- and Psychic-type Pokémon can Mega Evolve fly freely through the skies of the Hoenn region.
Trainers can hop on the back of their Mega Latios or Mega Latias and navigate the region through the air at high speed while performing midair tricks and hairpin turns. This brand-new method of travel, called Soar, takes a player’s Pokémon adventure to new heights and provides access to Mirage spots, where rare Pokémon—including Legendary Pokémon—and valuable items may appear.
It was also revealed today that Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire players will be able to obtain the Eon Ticket later this year, granting them access to the Hoenn region’s Southern Island where they can encounter and catch Latias in Pokémon Omega Ruby or Latios in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. This is the only way players can catch these Legendary Pokémon in-game, as they cannot be caught during normal gameplay. More details about when and how players can obtain the Eon Ticket will be announced later this year.
Special Demo Version Available Soon!
To obtain the Special Demo Version, players first need to obtain a serial code, which is being distributed at no charge in various ways, and head to Nintendo eShop on their Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS device to download the Special Demo Version.
Pokémon fans who have a Pokémon Trainer Club account and have opted to receive the Pokémon Trainer Club Newsletter will receive a serial code for the Special Demo Version when the newsletter is emailed to them on October 21. Get a Pokémon Trainer Club account at no cost at Pokemon.com by October 19 to receive the October 21 newsletter and Special Demo Version serial code. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are sold separately beginning November 21.
Additional methods of how to receive a serial code for the Special Demo Version will be announced soon.
New Mega-Evolved Pokémon: Mega Pidgeot and Mega Beedrill!
Boasting increased Special Attack and high Speed, Mega Pidgeot makes quick work of its opponents. Pidgeot can learn the Flying-type move Hurricane, which creates a chaotic storm around the target, potentially causing confusion. Coupled with its No Guard Ability, which allows all moves to land a hit regardless of accuracy, Mega Pidgeot can be a saving grace in any battle.
Upon Mega Evolving, poisonous stingers on Beedrill’s tail and arms grow, new barbs sprout from its legs, and its Attack receives a boost. The Bug-type move Fell Stinger raises Beedrill’s Attack stat by two stages when it causes an opponent to faint, and its Adaptability Ability raises the power of its moves of the same type from the standard 150% to 200%, making Mega Beedrill a great offensive teammate.
Navigate Your Adventure with PlayNav Plus!
The PlayNav function offers three popular features that first appeared in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y—the Player Search System (PSS), Pokémon-Amie, and Super Training. The PSS allows players to trade Pokémon and battle with others nearby or around the world with a Wi-Fi connection. Trainers can play with their Pokémon and feed them treats called Poké Puffs in Pokémon-Amie, and the bond between Trainer and Pokémon will grow. Super Training is a fun way to prepare your Pokémon team for battle. PlayNav also allows players to manage their O-Powers, special advantages that can be kept or shared with others as the game progresses, and view announcements via the Holo Caster.
Be sure to visit Pokemon.com/OmegaAlpha for more Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire news that will be revealed leading up to the November 21st launch.

TOADETTE’S READY FOR ADVENTURE IN CAPTAIN TOAD: TREASURE TRACKER FOR WII U
Oct. 10. 2014 - Who’s ready for adventure? Captain Toad certainly is, but he’s not the only one. Pink-pigtailed Toadette joins Captain Toad and makes her debut as a second playable character in portions of the upcoming Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker game.
Armed with a headlight and a can-do attitude, Captain Toad and Toadette must make their way through enemy-infested locales like Wild West shanties and Goomba waterparks. Each location is bursting with puzzles to solve and secrets to unearth. These heroes need to be extra clever in order to tackle these obstacles, since they can’t jump.
These tiny heroes are on the hunt for the ultimate treasure, a coveted Power Star. At the beginning of their adventure, Wingo, a giant, greedy bird who makes life difficult for these timid treasure trackers, makes off with their only Power Star, and even whisks away Toadette. Players must then help Captain Toad retrieve the Power Star and Toadette in order to unlock her as a playable character, and ultimately, defeat Wingo.
In the process, they’ll encounter more than 70 fun, puzzling stages while also collecting stars and gems. There will even be different power-ups they can use to their advantage, like the Double Cherry item that makes another copy of Captain Toad or Toadette, making some of those stages even more riveting.
Captain Toad and his puzzling levels first appeared in Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U console. The levels were such a hit with fans that he and Toadette are now getting their own game. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is just another way Nintendo is expanding its universe of games with familiar characters facing fun new challenges.
The Wii U game launches in stores and in the Nintendo eShop on Dec. 5 at a suggested retail price of $39.99. For more information about Nintendo, visit http://www.nintendo.com.
