Pokémon Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire Have More Mega Evolutions


Japan’s CoroCoro magazine has shared new information on Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. (Thanks,


According to the scans, Sceptile, Swampert and Diancie all have Mega Evolutions now. Mega Sceptile is classified as Grass/Dragon-type, Mega Swampert is Water/Ground-type and Mega Diancie is Rock/Fairy-type.


Additionally, Kyogre and Groudon, the two mascot legendaries, have Mega Evolutions of some sort, too, although they aren’t quite described as such. They’re called Primal/Prehistoric/Primeval Groudon and Primal/Prehistoric/Primeval Kyogre. They’re said to be “regressions” called Ancient Devolution.


CoroCoro also reveals that the Mach and Acro Bike are back in the game, along with Teams Aqua and Magma, led by Archie and Maxie respectively. Both characters and their underlings have been redesigned for the game. Like in the original titles, the team you face depends on the game you play.
