Today the mysteries of Mega Evolution deepened when The Pokémon Company International revealed that Rayquaza, the third Legendary Pokémon of the Hoenn region, can Mega Evolve in the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire video games! Rayquaza is an incredibly powerful Dragon- and Flying-type Pokémon, standing equal to Legendary Pokémon Groudon and Kyogre. A brand new trailer of Mega Rayquaza in battle was released today from The Pokémon Company International.
In battle, Mega Rayquaza’s skills are sure to wreak havoc on an opponent’s strategy with its Delta Stream Ability. Powerful moves like Rain Dance, Sunny Day, Sandstorm, and Hail will fail in the face of strong winds whipped up by Mega Rayquaza, whilst Abilities like Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream, and Snow Warning will not even activate. In addition, moves of a type to which Flying-type Pokémon are usually susceptible will only deal normal damage.
Beginning today, The Pokémon Company International will make a special Super-Size Pumpkaboo available to players of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y via Nintendo Network. They are also launching a Halloween-themed page on the official Pokémon website with various tricks and treats. Head there now at Pokemon.com/TCG.
This distribution will allow players to easily qualify for the Trick-or-Treat Friendly Online Competition, which video game players can find details about on Pokemon.com. To qualify, every participant’s Battle Box must include a Super-Size Gourgeist. The easiest way to find this Gourgeist is to get a Super-Size Pumpkaboo for your Pokémon X or Pokémon Y game, and then trade it to have it evolve into the battle-ready Gourgeist.
Even non-competitors can get in the Halloween spirit with Pumpkaboo! This Super-Size Pumpkaboo comes with moves perfect for Halloween, including Trick-or-Treat and Scary Face. Plus, it’s holding a Rocky Helmet, which can cause damage to its attacker.
Pumpkaboo, the Pumpkin Pokémon, comes in four sizes, each featuring different stats for players to take advantage of. Super-Size Pumpkaboo typically possess a larger HP stat than their smaller counterparts, making them more durable during Pokémon Battles. Even more bone-chilling than that, Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist are the only known Pokémon that can learn the move Trick-or-Treat, which can add an eerie element to any encounter by adding the Ghost type to opponents.
This morning, The Pokémon Company International launched the Pokémon TCG Online app for the iPad and iPad mini in various markets, including Australia, France, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The app launched in Canada last Friday. Tomorrow, September 30, the app will launch in the United States followed by other markets in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa later in the week. Fans will be able to get the free app at the Apple App Store at appstore.com/pokemontcgo.

The stream will be broadcast October 2nd from 6:00pm JST to 1:00am JST. As you would expect there will be plenty of gameplay footage and the publication promises some new information too. Here’s what the month of October is looking like for fans of the Pokemon franchise.
