What Exactly Are “Mirage Spots” In Pokémon Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire?



Now that players can travel across the skies in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, there’s plenty of exploring to look forward to, and the “Mirage Spots” sound like they’ll especially be exciting to find. The official website in Japan shares a few more details about them.



When using the new travel method called “Soar,” you may occasionally come across a dark foggy area called “Mirage Spots”. Rare and legendary Pokémon can be found here, along with some valuable items.


While powerful legendary Pokémon can be found in these Mirage Spots, the website mentions that there are some legendaries that will appear exclusively to certain versions of the game. More details on that are expected to be revealed in the near future.


Not much is known about the Mirage Spots, but in addition to having powerful Pokémon inside, it is said that there are also some areas that can only be seen after meeting certain conditions.



We’re not sure how these aforementioned areas will show up or what conditions must be met, but it sounds like a lot of exploring and traveling will be involved. While doing that, you may even find some islands that aren’t shown on the map, which may be home to rare Pokémon.


Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire is slated for release in North America on November 21st and November 28th in Europe for Nintendo 3DS.
