New, 12 comments

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will feature legendary Pokémon Groudon and Kyogre in both their original and primal forms, as well as Rayquaza and three new Mega-Evolutions, The Pokémon Company International announced today.

Groudon, Kyogre and Rayquaza make up a Legendary trio first introduced in the original Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. Groudon and Kyogre will have special "Primal Reversion" forms in which they gain exclusive abilities. Groudon can use the Desolate Land and Precipice Blades abilities, while Kyogre has Primordial Sea and Origin Pulse.

Pokémon Camerupt, Sharpedo and Gallade will all have Mega-Evolutions.

Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will also support the Pokémon Bank and Pokémon Global Link at launch. With the bank— a paid service with an annual charge — players can store extra Pokémon online. The Global Link, meanwhile, uses save data and gameplay progress from players to track stats and more.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire launch for Nintendo 3DS Nov. 21. A demo of the game will be available for players to start their game early.
