Shiny Mega-Evolution awaits all players in Pokémon Alpha Ruby and Omega Sapphire

New mega-evolutions for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire include Mega Salamence, Mega Lopunny and Mega Altaria, as seen in this latest trailer for the game, launching Nov. 21 on Nintendo 3DS.

Additionally, once the game launches, players can get "an incredibly rare Shiny Beldum holding a Mega Stone," through an in-game distribution beginning on the launch date. Once evolved into Shiny Metagross, the Mega Stone allows a Mega Evolution into — wait for it — Shiny Mega Metagross.

Pikachu also shows up in five cosplay outfits — Rock Star, Pop Star, Ph.D, Belle and Libre, all with special moves.
