Pokemon ORAS



So I picked up Pokemon Alpha Sapphire the other day and I have been marathon playing it all weekend. What do you guys think of it?

Personally I am loving it, although I must say... dayum to Mauville City. Was not expecting that drastic of a change. Welp, I guess other changes like that are to be expected when you don't have the Battle Frontier. The nostalgia levels in this game are just so high right now. Like, I've been at my friend's all weekend and we were just freaking out over all the things we remembered from playing Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald back in the day!


(Apologies if this is in the wrong section. No other place I can imagine putting it really. Handheld games are not exactly console games. Also my first forum topic. :s)

Pretty much everything you said minus the friend part.
The OST as well damn, they really intensify the nostalgia points. Could listen to them all day if I didn't have the game to play and anime to watch.
Also loving the animations for scenes like Wally on Victory Road and the obvious awakening of the legendaries, and the dialogue changes in the story were delicious.
That Delta Episode was fantastic, and I actually had a tough time trying to catch Rayquaza and Deoxys, which pleased me. Recent games I've been able to catch legendaries too easily, so this change of pace was great. =w=
Last but not least, them adorable Courtney scenes have made her one of my top Pokemon girls. She was too precious, enjoyed the importance she was given on the Delta Episode.

Now, I'm just currently messing around the game with Secret Bases, finishing the Pokedex, mirage zones, and such.
Extremely pleased with how this game turned out.

I have a feeling that the Battle Frontier will be included in a future patch.

Is it just me or Primal Groudon is too overpowered.
Its ability,Desolate Land, makes water attacks useless towards it. How do you defeat it now? It also makes fire type moves even strong.

Primal Groundon only weakness is ground types moves. Ironic isn’t it?

As for the counter...Mega Swampert via earthquake should work.

I'd be delighted if this does happen. I miss that place.

I have me 4 badges so far and I'm loving everything about it! By far one of the best remakes ever. The graphics are eye candy and I love the new updates, such as Mauville City like you said lol.

I'm loving Alpha Sapphire so far! The DexNav feature is pretty handy for catching pokemon, making it much easier to fill up the Pokedex!
Only have 3 badges so far.

How soon can you transfer Pokemon and what is the method? Is it only via the Pokemon Bank or can you trade between X / Y and ORAS?

Yeah, you can trade between X/Y and ORAS. I traded over my lvl 1 Larvesta and Eevee that I had bred specifically for the release of this game. Should be available as soon as you 'help' Wally catch a Ralts, provided you have another 3DS lying around.

Sweet, thanks!

I have a few 3DS XLs available ( thanks to impulsive shopping whenever limited editions come out )

Got both just because I'm a fan of the games and even though I have all the pokemon on X/Y from previous tranfers and what not but I never use them unless I play competitive online I have trained IV and EV with specific moves for that.
