WARNING: CONTAINS MINOR SPOILERS TO OMEGA RUBY/ALPHA SAPPHIRE


Ok, so I just got Primal Groudon and was given the Eon flute, which allows me to fly on Mega Latios/Latias over Hoenn (even if they are not in my party) will a full range of controls anytime as well as land anywhere I want (even on routes). This was brought up in the trailers and leaks, but you can also encounter legendary Pokemon on certain islands, Pokemon from other regions on other islands, as well as fight Pokemon in the sky (this isn't a sky battle however; you can use any Pokemon you want).

I was anticipating this mechanic at first, but when I finally flew for the first time, it was one of the greatest Pokemon experiences I have ever had, and I've been playing for over ten years. I felt like I was there, flying on my Latios's back, like many trainers have dreamed of doing with their flying types or their levitating Pokemon. I feel as if, by doing this, an entirely new dimension has been added to the game since you can really fly instead of just getting a cut-scene of flying from one place to another. The legendaries and other added mechanics have been a lot of fun as well, and even though I haven't finished the game yet, it does seem to be promising for spicing up the after-game.

I want to hear your opinion. Do you like flying on Mega Latios/Latias? What do you think of its potential as a mechanic? Do you think it adds another dimension to the game and is it a promising feature to the after-game?

When I get to fly, I'll let you know what I think!
If I can remember to do so anyway... xD

Well, I hope you enjoy it when you get there, whether I hear back from you or not.

I think the Soaring ability is a cool thing at first but then loses its wow factor after a while.

I didn't forget, I just didn't get the flute until a few days ago
It's quite cool, and flying around to find legendaries is fun.
The ability to land on routes will definitely make getting TMs and such quicker that were missed the first time through.

I just wish I didn't have to sit through the mega evolution animation every time I rode on Latias haha.

Other than that it's a lot of fun!
