If you haven't been following up on your Pokemon handheld games today marks the release of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire releasing for Nintendo 3Ds. These games are remakes to the Ruby and Sapphire version but also include a brand new type of evolutions the mega evolutions. Which you might remember from the card game in more recent times. Before picking which game you will end up buying each of the versions of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire contain mega stones which are only obtainable in one of the two games so trading will be a key point of these games.
Review wise the game scored pretty high but some of the critics feel that the game mechanics could use more work. They where slightly disappointed about the massive mounts of HM's needed to play the game and also complained about the imblance favoring water type Pokemon. They have how ever added some of the features that we haven't seen in a long time this includes the secret bases where we could create our own custom base and decorate it.
According to Amazon so many people have been preordering the game that they had to cancel preorders for the game for people who tried to preorder it too late. With that being said it seems the Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be quite popular for Pokemon games. Especially since Ruby and Sapphire was actually very well recieved and one of the better story's for Pokemon apon release.
