Legendary Pokemon Rayquaza Joins Groudon And Kyogre In Pokemon Ruby And Sapphire, Plus Demo Coming Soon (Video)

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced today that fan favorite Rayquaza, an incredibly powerful Pokémon, will join fellow Legendary Pokémon Groudon and Kyogre in the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire video games. This mysterious Dragon- and Flying-type Pokémon is said to descend to the planet¹s surface when Groudon and Kyogre clash. Adding to its legend, Rayquaza is somehow related to the mystery of Mega Evolution. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire players will find out precisely how when the video games launch November 21, 2014, for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Fans can now watch Rayquaza in action, and other new scenes from the games, in a brand-new trailer at

True Powers of Groudon and Kyogre
Legendary Pokémon Groudon and Kyogre intensify their power under Primal Reversion, each obtaining an Ability that only Primal Groudon or Primal Kyogre can possess.

Primal Groudon gains the Desolate Land Ability, which changes the weather condition to extremely harsh sunlight. Opponents cannot change the weather condition during extremely harsh sunlight, meaning moves like Rain Dance, Sunny Day, Sandstorm, and Hail will fail, and Water-type attacks will fizzle out. Abilities like Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream and Snow Warning will also fail to activate. Groudon can unleash a move unique to it alone, Precipice Blades, a powerful attack that can hit multiple opponents with an upward surge of sharp rocks.

Primal Kyogre¹s exclusive Ability is Primordial Sea, which changes the weather condition to an oppressive heavy rain. As with extremely harsh sunlight, opponents cannot change the weather condition during heavy rain. The Abilities Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream, and Snow Warning will fail to activate, and Fire-type attacks become ineffective as well. Kyogre has its own move that only it can use, Origin Pulse, an attack that can slam multiple opponents with water massed into ballistic orbs.

Team Magma and Team Aqua battle with Mega-Evolved Pokémon
Team Magma is led by Maxie, who leads the team¹s mission in seeking a world ideal for humanity. The organization wishes to increase the landmass on the planet, adding to it so humanity can labor to achieve greater evolution and development. Team Magma thinks laboring for the equal coexistence of humanity and Pokémon is foolish and only holds back humanity¹s progress.

During the team¹s mission, Maxie battles with the Fire- and Ground-type Pokémon Camerupt, which can Mega Evolve into Mega Camerupt. Maxie wears a pair of Mega Glasses, set with a mysterious Key Stone needed to Mega Evolve his Pokémon. Players can battle with Camerupt, too, and when it Mega Evolves, its Ability changes to Sheer Force, which raises the power of all attacking moves that have an additional effect. But beware‹the additional effects are ignored. Most of Mega Camerupt¹s base stats are uniformly raised, but its Speed drops. It¹s best to think of strategies where Mega Camerupt can be used as the second act in battle.

Team Aqua is led by Archie, who leads the team¹s mission in increasing the size of the oceans in an effort to bring back the rich habitats lost to Pokémon due to humanity¹s greed. Team Aqua believes the ocean is the font of all life, and by restoring it, its members think that they can re-create an ideal home for Pokémon.

During the team¹s mission, Archie battles with the Water- and Dark-type Pokémon Sharpedo, which can Mega Evolve into Mega Sharpedo. Archie wears the Mega Anchor, set with a mysterious Key Stone needed to Mega Evolve his Pokémon. Players can battle with Sharpedo, too, and when it Mega Evolves, all of its stats show a boost, and its already high Attack is enhanced. Mega Sharpedo also gains the Strong Jaw Ability, which raises the power of bite attacks like Crunch.

A young Trainer named Wally and his Mega Gallade
When players begin their adventure, they will meet a timid young Trainer named Wally, who hails from Petalburg City. He hopes to be a strong Trainer despite being meek and shy. Tiny Ralts is the first Pokémon that Wally catches, and after it evolves into Kirlia and then Gallade, it can Mega Evolve into Mega Gallade. Players can encounter Ralts, too, and when they evolve it to Kirlia and use a Dawn Stone on a male Kirlia, it will evolve into Gallade. When Mega Evolved, Mega Gallade¹s Ability changes to Inner Focus, which prevents it from flinching during battle. Its Attack and Speed stats also improve, making Mega Gallade an effective first-strike Pokémon.

Play the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version!
The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo also announced today that players can start their next Hoenn region adventure early with a special demo version of the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire games.

The Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version features gameplay that players won¹t experience anywhere else. During the course of this early adventure, players are likely to encounter a familiar Pokémon that can now Mega Evolve. What¹s more, one of these Mega-Evolved Pokémon can be brought into the full Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire games. Reward items obtained during the Special Demo Version adventure can also be brought into the full game which is sold separately. Details about how to bring Pokémon and items into the full game will be announced soon.

More details about the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire special demo version will be announced soon, including how to get a special code that will be needed to access the special demo version.

Pokémon Bank and the Pokémon Global Link are compatible with Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire

The Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire games will be compatible with Pokémon Bank and supported by the Pokémon Global Link from the day of release.

Pokémon Bank is an application and service that allows players to deposit, store, and manage their Pokémon in private Boxes on the Internet. Pokémon Bank is a powerful resource for players who like to obtain many different kinds of Pokémon, or for those who like to raise many Pokémon in preparation for battles and competitions!

Pokémon Bank is a paid service with an annual charge for usage.

  1. I have a dumb question. If you were a pokemon, any one you can think of, (lets base it off the first gen) what do you think you would be? Not what you would like to be, like “ohh yeah i would be mew two” no you wouldn’t cock sucker lmao. If your trying to pull that shit you would probably be that stupid ice cream cone form later generations.

    I just randomly thought of it and this seems like the best place to go for such a retarded topic lmao.

    example sasori would be magic carp for instance haha, though maybe he thinks otherwise.


            1. yeah i think i remember that one, i just looked dustclops up it’s like a ghost pokemon. Mysterious or something, i remember it having description like that. OHHH haha it’s like drowzey. Are you going to abduct kids in the forest?

      1. That big greed guy? So you are an asshole who is dominate and will fight anything without thought of loss? That’s the description haha.

        1. Nintendo is my Blood Reborn

          Please, sasori wouldn’t be Magikarp, Magikarp is useful in that it evolves into Gyarados which is a mother fucking awesome dragon.

          Maybe sasori would be Jynx, search it and see what I mean.

          As for me I suppose I think of myself as Sharpedo or Basculin.

          1. I really remember sharpedo, it’s just a shark. “It is feared and known as Bully of the Sea, or Gangs of the Sea as a group, due to its sharp teeth. Its fangs can rip through iron and tear apart a supertanker. When its fangs fall out, they grow back immediately”

            From what i understand the basculin is an asshole fish lmao, like a piranha “Basculin are also consumed by humans and are considered very delicious.” Better watch out, humans are your worst enemies.

            Yeah i know jynx……. if there was a male form i think it would fit him…….

            Sasori would be the whale pokemon from gen 3 lmao out of any fish pokemon. So he would just sit there underwater annoying everybody trash talking while playing cod online, and nobody can do anything because he is a whale. “i’m not getting this game, i’m not doing that, im not moving, im not getting off cod”

            Those fish pokemon are angry haha, like i think garadose is nicer in nature because gyradose are supposed to be angry, i don’t blame him from his shitty upbringing. It’s like that’s all he knows.Magicarp just don’t get treated with respect. There worthless and everybody hates them. Then the guy evolves into these wild powerful and angry pokemon. Though i remember in the first season of pokemon, that a gyradose was nicer because it’s trainer took care of it when a magicarp.

      1. who the fuck are all these fucking pokemon!!! lmao. That’s thing that involves into marrel or what marral involves into?

            1. Nintendo is my Blood Reborn

              Azumarill is actually I powerful Pokemon, thanks to it’s access to Huge Power, it is even in OU, which is the top tier of powerful Pokemon.
              It can also abuse that ability with Power-Up Punch, Belly Drum and Aqua Jet.

              1. Azumarill is powerful! I went through like 2/3 of Pokemon X without even needing to use most of my other Pokemon! Lol!

                  1. Azumarill powerful? Really? I always thought that thing was weak and worthless and overall a wimp? Somebody told me to never get a marril because it was so weak and horrible…… I’d assume the same from azumarill.

      1. cubone is a messed up guy but interesting because of it. cyndaquil is like a more jolly squirtal i think. That’s how i see it anyway.

  2. That’s a lotta info!
    I’m pretty stoked for this game. I think it will house all my Pokemon from previous gens instead of y… But that depends if z or emerald ever come out

  3. Yesssss! Love Rayquaza. But does this mean they won’t be making a third game? I used to look forward to the third Pokemon game in a series, and I was surprised when they didn’t come out with something like “Pokemon Z.” Crystal version was also my first and favorite Pokemon game, so I’ve always liked those third installments.

    1. I don’t think we’re getting a 3rd game since I think they’re going to make subtle changes so it has the RS feeling but with the Emerald additions.

    1. Honestly, you should buy the game without question. This is 3rd Gen we’re talking about.
      It’s a remake, yes. But it’s a remake with additional features and elements that are actually new. Unlike some rehashed games from the past.
      I just hope by “demo” they mean downloadable via eShop, and not just a stationed 3DS at your local Best Buy/Gamestop like they did with Diamond and Pearl.

  4. Unrelated, but I just turned on my 3DS for the first time in a few months and now my Wii U Miiverse Mii turned into my 3DS Mii. How do I change it back?

            1. Well, i guess you should get mad at your 3ds then that it took all off your experience away……. If it’s chill maybe you should just smoke a ton of weed or something haha. SO you can like chillax to it better but not so much where you can’t stand.

                1. Don’t you ever get a tolerance? If you do it all the time you need more to get the same effect, costing more money and everything, depending if you use a ton.

                  1. unfortunately you do get a tolerance, never thought it would happen, but you do. I hardly notice much difference these days, I just get chilled out, and maybe some munchies if I am at wal mart and fall for their cheap deals when in the zone. No more giggles and such. Now it just takes the edge off the day. And I don’t think I can go back either. I feel I’ve smoked and tripped to the point that my mind is so familiar with those states of mind, getting high is natural to me. Definitely space out your pot for a good few years, there are good things about being an every day smoker and bad things. Also I don’t really pay much lol I usually get about 2Ozones and sell to my friends, so usually I end up smoking everyday for free.

                    1. haha yeah that’s why i don’t do it all the time or more than one time in a day.

                      I have a super low tolerance because of it, a huge puff or 2 big puffs can knock me off my feet. Once i almost couldn’t walk up this little hill in the forest. It was just hard to walk. oxy was probably easier to walk on than weed even if it just fucking chilled your whole body into bliss, and numbed it.

                      IDK sometimes i hate weed, like i hate when your face and throat go dumb, though oxy has done that way worse where i thought i was going to die, my whole face would lose almost all feeling where the weed would make it numb and weird feeling.

                      I hate that fucking feeling, tell me weed ever gave you that too because people say they don’t get that.

                      1. I miss getting stupid high and stuff lol. I can definitely understand the trouble walking up a hill lol I used to have a little trouble at this hill I used to smoke at. That was 10 years ago actually damn lol. I don’t think I’ve ever had my face or numb from smoking, I have gotten really flushed and turned pale after hitting gravity bongs and getting the spins real bad. But that’s only from gravity bongs and I don’t hit them much anymore, nobody I know even has them lol. Waiting to hear back from my friend if he knows anything that could be causing the numbing, or if that’s supposed to be a rare side effect or something.

                        1. Yeah ask some of your stoner buddies lmao if the face going numb thing is normal or is like a rare side effect…… it happens quite a bit but not all the time. That’s one of the reasons i don’t use as much because i hate the feeling.

                          What if i was allergic? Though i highly doubt it…. Actually you know what, when i smoked out of bongs these effects happened and when i smoke out of a pipe i don’t get paranoid, nearly as numb or anything…… weird. Though the bong gives off a stronger high but defiantly has gave me bad trips.

                          You know what i hear that eating it (never have) takes longer to kick in but also the high lasts longer. That true? Though some kids have said you don’t get high that way, that’s a bunch of bull.

                          1. Ok so nobody has had the face numb or throat issue lol ever that I know. Not sure about pot allergies lol. Bongs definitely get you more ripped than pipes or joints/blunts. Eating takes longer, I’ve surprisingly never eaten enough to feel much but my friends who have say it’s definitely more potent. You definitely get high eating it IF you do it right. Lots of things require making cannabutter. Google it if you need to know how so you don’t waste your bud lol.

                          2. haha dude speaking of pot i got banned from miiverse from trying to sneak pothead talk on your post lmao! I wonder if that was my last ban? I checked a while ago and it said i still can’t go on haha. That was weeks ago.

                            Anyway you say you live in florida? If i ever end up there for some reason we should hang out lmao. I’ve been down there and i really liked it. florida was the shit and the climate did good for me surprisingly. Down by the coast was niice, though i was disappointed because i was chick picking and there was like no hOt chicks at the fucking beach. FUCKING TV AND SHIT LIES LMAO!!! UHHHH!!!!

                            1. Miiverse scolded me too lol but I didn’t get a ban about that pot talk we had. So the next day I drew a dick on the smash brothers main page lol. It’s still there with no action taken. And yea man, if you ever come down to florida I’m down to chill and show you around and all. Usually the beaches have some decent hotties, but it’s definitely over exaggerated on the boob tube. I don’t mind the weather so much, but sometimes it’s way too hot and you don’t wanna do shit lol. Like sitting in the shade for five minutes and you’re sweating. It’s more the humidity that gets you. Were you down here visiting people or just for fun?

                              1. It was just for fun but one of my parents friends let us use there condo, this was like over a year ago. When i visited, it was cooler than where i live lmao, at the time anyway. I could breath down there better surprisingly, I don’t think it gets like super muggy out there when it gets hot it feels more light, from my experience anyway. at least by the coast more.

                                If it gets super hot up here and if it’s muggy you won’t want to be outside at all and when the windows are dripping water and foggy when you wake up you know it’s going to be an awful day. I felt like down there it just gets super hot but the air will be good.

                                I might visit out there again for a family vacation and if i like it again and it does good for me medically i would want to live there. Though if that ever happened i would be all alone and not know anybody lmao, and me not being in high school would make it weirder to meet people…. well i guess i could go to campus or something for college if i ever went down there, that seems like it would make the most sense. That costs money though…….

                                Yeah though if that ever happened we could meet up or something, since i sorta know you haha. The chances seem slim and i couldn’t live on my own but if i visit down there again and i feel that much better like i did before, i would think about going there.

                                Yeah but i was so fucking disappointed with the chicks at the beach…. god what the fuck i find hotter girls at the fucking lake lmao.

                                1. That sounds pretty nice getting to stay at a condo for vacation instead of a hotel. Were you up north in florida or down south? There’s a big difference, even with central florida. It’s much nicer there. South florida might as well be it’s own state honestly lol. That is awesome though that you could breathe better here. I wouldn’t blame you for wanting to move somewhere you felt healthier, that’s a big thing. And it would definitely be harder to find new friends being out of school, but it happens. Jobs are usually the best places for that. As long as you don’t get stuck working with douches lol. Muggyness sounds pretty sucky. I do love a good thick fog though. We hardly ever get a fog down here. I love when it’s so foggy you can’t even see. There are some good schools down here, so that’s an option like you said. Going to school out of state is really expensive though. Let me know if you ever do take a family vacation in the mean time though lol. I’ll let you try some good bud if you’re up for it lol.

                            1. Probably will get the wii u version, not sure if i will get it the first day or not.

                              I definitely don’t play competitive though, (with no items and being serious) well semi since you always fight. I like fucking around and laughing at everything, even then though brawl fucking sucked in almost every way compared to melee and even some to 64.

                              1. True that, I play both ways, never really done tournaments though, just friends and friends of friends and such lol. I’m really liking this one, and sure the Wii U one will be awesome.

                  2. Groudon and Kyogre have amazing abilities!!! Holy bum!!! They can effectively make an entire type useless in battles.

                    I can’t wait to stop Mega Blaziken with my Primal Kyogre Muhahahahaha!

                  3. Ridley 2 Big 4 Smash? More Like 2 Big 4 U Wiiklings 2 Control! Leave Him 2 The Masters!

                    Damn. I was hoping Rayquaza would get a Primal form. Oh well. Gallade’s mega evolution is a fucking caped superhero! xD Looks like I’ll be breeding for a male Ralts, so I can give my Gallade a superhero sounding nickname! As for my current Gallade, looks like I’ll be leveling him up to a high level than trade it over the GTS for a Pokemon I don’t have.

                    1. Ridley 2 Big 4 Smash? More Like 2 Big 4 U Wiiklings 2 Control! Leave Him 2 The Masters!

                      I’m also loving the Mega Sharpedo! Looks like I’ll be having two PKMN nicknamed Jaws: Sharpedo & Garchomp. xD
