By Sato . July 9, 2014 . 12:28pm


We recently reported that Secret Bases are back in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. In the remakes, you’ll be customize a secret base to make your very own Pokémon Gym, and more. Over in Japan, The Pokémon Company revealed a little more about Secret Bases today. Here’s a look, courtesy of 4Gamer.

The basics are still the same as in the original games. The above screenshots illustrate how you can first start making your Secret Base after finding a suitable spot.

Once you’ve settled in, you can use the PC to customize your Secret Base with all kinds of different items, and decorate it any way you like.

As previously reported, you can scout for trainers and invite them by visiting other Secret Bases, and they’ll join you as “Secret Pals”. You’ll be able to interact and battle with them, and even give your little crew a name, like the “Secret Omega Troupe” as shown above.

In addition to getting items, the Secret Pals will help make your Pokémon eggs hatch faster, along with another feature that lets you raise the level of one of your Pokémon by one.


Here’s a closer look at what it’s like being your own Gym Leader in the Secret Base, and a look at capturing flags and ranking up:

Again, your Secret Base can also be shared via QR Code, which seems to also share how many flags you’ve acquired thus far, along with your crew’s name and a personal message.

Aarune is one of the new characters, who is known as the master of Secret Bases. He’s an adventurer who travels around the world but seems to have settled in the Hoenn region.

While Aarune is an overall cool guy who’ll be there to tell you more about the Secret Bases and how fun they are, you can also battle him and his trusted partner Flygon.


Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be released in November 2014 for Nintendo 3DS.

    Zubats for days! I can finally form that Zubat Family Gym that the Pokemon series needed since forever. Remember children, CroBatman is the hero Lumiose City needs, but not the one it deserves right now…

  • DrakeClawfang

    ooooooo I hope this is more proof that Mega Flygon is coming.

  • AnotherVistor02

    So Aarune has a flygon and does that mean mega flygon? :P

    • AuraGuyChris

      Using insane troll logic, yes.

      Using logic and seeing his outfit for any weird, funny-looking stone, no.

    • Land of Green Pasture

      ooo… almost forgot about the pokemon contest amidst this euphoria of secret bases, they should have it, it’s definitely an enjoyable mini game in R/S

      • chosen105

        Hopefully its the same way as R/S and not D/P. I hated dressing them up it was stupid XD

        • Princess_Eevee9

          Yeah stupid not genius or further customizing your Pokémon in how true Contests are held and carried out. Moron. ; D

          I for want want the Battle Frontier and Facilities back! PLEASE GAMEFREAK!

          • chosen105

            ok first of all the anime didnt dress up there pokemon so you an idiot for that one. secondly no one cares to do that so your a loser on your own for that one too. And lastly, your an idiot for acting like a fag over a kids game, kill yourself for that

          • Princess_Eevee9

            Whoa man I guess I missed those dozen episodes in the Anime from 1st Gen and on when people dressed all their Pokémon up when they were entering them into all sorts of contests. Hey look you know how to do generic namecalling and yawn worthy insults. Perhaps I will if it means that I don’t have to share air I breathe with worthless scum such as yourself.

          • chosen105

            I find it funny that people come on the internet and criticize others for having an opinion that’s different from theirs. If you don’t like what I got to say then don’t comment but keep your insults to yourself. No one has time to argue with some loser on the internet who doesn’t want other people to have opinions and calls them names for it. Like I said earlier, kill yourself

    • chosen105

      YES!!! thats the main reason I was so hype about this. Gives us something else to do other then gym battles

    • HarakiriKami


    • Spicydicey

      Pokemon contests were great. You could potentially have a completely different team tailored for contests instead of battles.

      It would be cool to see the system expanded.

  • 3PointDecoupage

    Im ggoing to invite that guy who uses six magikarps thats in every game to my secret base.

    Theyll never find the body.

  • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owl

    Well, at least I can share everyone my Secret Base once Alpha Sapphire gets released.

  • DragKudo

    This will be fun hope they expand on this in future games. Would be cool to fight other gyms around the world I’d play the game everyday.

    I never liked secret bases.

  • Godman

    I know where my base is going, Route 119 near the berry garden
    As it had always been since I first played Gen 3
    I’m loving this to death, throw in an advance character creator and I might not make it until its release

    • phayroent

      Then how would you play it?

      • 07thCrow

        We’ll just throw a Revive at him when the release date hits.

        • Godman

          Thanks lol

    • Detrimont

      that’s my one as well!!! :D

    • 07thCrow

      Ah, Route 119… that place was the best. I remember there was another secret base on a lake, it was awesome for the items and exp.

  • Astraea’s Eyebrow

    I hope you can make the bases.. well.. um bigger.

    • John Smith

      Off-topic, but that is one mighty fine name and avatar

      • Astraea’s Eyebrow

        Haha, why thank you!

  • Desk


  • Black Is a Status

    own gym, OWN GYM

  • Swaggermuffin

    Aarune needs to calm down with those shorts.

    • PreyMantis

      But they’re comfy and easy to wear! :|

  • Princess_Eevee9

    For some reason I don’t find his face trustworthy. xD

  • Detrimont

    Mega Flygon confirmed

  • Raltrios

    Dear lord I hope the Streetpass won’t automatically update. If someone gets to the spot I want as my base first and it appears in my world, I’d be out of luck, huh?
    It would be better if the system obtains the data, and then you choose when it updates. Or if you can pick and choose who stays in your game.

  • JohnNiles

    “…the Secret Pals will help make your Pokemon eggs hatch faster”


  • ShawnOtakuSomething

  • Lemski07
