A new English OR/AS trailer has revealed new details about the CoroCoro information from this week. Primal Groudon's Ability is named "Desolate Land," which creates "extremely harsh sunlight." Water-type moves become ineffective and weather-changing moves do not work. Its new attack is named "Precipice Blades." Primal Kyogre's Ability is "Primordial Sea," which creates heavy rain, makes Fire-type moves ineffective, and also prevents weather-changing moves. Its new attack is named "Origin Pulse." Both Abilities last until the Pokemon is switched out.

The demo version has also been confirmed for English release, as you can read below the video. No release date has been announced yet.

Start your next Hoenn region adventure early with a special demo version of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. This demo features gameplay that you won’t experience anywhere else. During the course of this adventure, you’ll be surprised to encounter familiar Pokémon that can now Mega Evolve! What’s more, you can bring this Pokémon into your full Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire game. You can even bring over the reward items that you obtained during your Special Demo Version adventure. Stay tuned for details on how to bring the Pokémon and items into your full game.

You can play the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version as many times as you like. Look for special scenarios that occur if you play every day.

Furthermore, new character descriptions for the new Mega Evolutions and Team Magma and Aqua were posted by Pokemon.com. The descriptions reveal more fleshed-out goals for the two villainous teams, with Team Aqua now wanting to expand the seas for Pokemon's benefit and Team Magma wanting to expand the land for humanity's development.

Mega Camerupt

Mega Camerupt: The humps on its back have transformed into one large and very active volcano. Magma is constantly bubbling up from within its body. It has a deep hatred of water or any moisture, and has an explosive personality and a short temper. The volcano on its back erupts constantly in an effort to intimidate its foes.

When it Mega Evolves, its Ability changes to Sheer Force. It grows stronger, and any moves that can have additional effects will grow in power—but it’s important to keep in mind that they will no longer be able to trigger their additional effects! Most of its stats are uniformly raised, but its Speed does drop. Try to think of strategies based on the likelihood of being second to act in battle.

Mega Sharpedo

Mega Sharpedo: The fangs in Mega Sharpedo's mouth have transformed, and the horns that have sprouted from its nose can be regrown countless times. The yellow patterns on its body are scars carved into it in battle. With explosive propulsion, it can exceed 125 mph in an instant.

When it Mega Evolves, all of its stats see a boost, and its already high Attack is whetted still further. In addition, Mega Sharpedo gains the Strong Jaw Ability, which raises the power of biting attacks. Have it learn moves that will take advantage of this aggressive Ability!

Wally Mega Gallade

Mega Gallade: Plates emerge on Gallade's arms, and the helmet and cape-like protrusions on its head and back give it a knightly appearance. When the situation demands, Mega Gallade can use its psychic power to reshape both arms into blades simultaneously, and fight using a dual-wielding style.

When it Mega Evolves, its Ability changes to Inner Focus, so it’s protected from flinching. Its Attack and Speed stats improve, making this a Pokémon likely to excel at first-strike strategies.

Team Magma and Aqua

Maxie: Maxie is the leader of Team Magma, the team seeking a world ideal for humanity. He pays attention to even the smallest of details, and is quite sensitive in some regards. He has a habit of describing situations in numerical terms. He possesses a cool-headed outlook, thinking that some sacrifices cannot be avoided if he is to achieve his goals.

Team Magma is an organization that plots to increase the landmass on the planet, effectively adding to the area upon which humanity can labor to achieve even greater evolution and development. Believing that humanity's development will lead to greater happiness for all the world, the members of Team Magma think that laboring for the equal coexistence of humanity and Pokémon is a foolish idea that serves only to hold back humanity’s progress.

Archie: Archie is the leader of Team Aqua, a man with an unwavering heart who seeks to build an ideal home for Pokémon. His big-hearted and stirring personality has won him deep loyalty from his subordinates. But he is also a dangerous figure, not caring what happens to himself or his team as long as he can achieve his goals.

Team Aqua is an organization that plots to increase the size of the oceans in an effort to bring back the rich habitats lost to Pokémon due to humanity’s greed. The ocean is the font of all life, and by restoring it, the members of Team Aqua think that they can recreate an ideal home for Pokémon.

In terms of merchandise, the soundtrack for the games will be released in Japan on December 6th. Pokemon Centers will also receive special edition New Nintendo 3DS systems themed after Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon. The systems will come with the games pre-installed.

CoroCoro is now leaking! We will continue to update this story with images and translations as they become available, so be sure to refresh! Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translations below!

To discuss this story, check out this forum thread.

  • Mega Gallade is the first new Mega Evolution revealed this month along with its Trainer, Wally. We can't see its details yet.
  • Mega Camerupt's Ability is Sheer Force and it is still Fire/Ground. All of its stats increase except Speed, which is lowered.
  • Mega Sharpedo has Strong Jaw and is still Water/Dark. All of its stats get boosted.
  • Primal Kyogre's new Ability is named Beginning Ocean, reflecting its game's alpha theme. It brings "strong rain." It is using a new attack, but the name is cut off.
  • Primal Groudon's new Ability is named Final Earth, reflecting its omega theme. It brings "strong sunlight." Primal Groudon uses a new attack called "Cliff Sword."
  • In case you missed it earlier, a demo of the games will be available next month.

Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine has revealed that next month's issue of CoroCoro will contain a serial code that players can use to download a demo version of Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire. It seems players will be able to use Grovyle, Combusken, or Marshtomp in these demos, meaning the game will probably start a little later in the story. Past Pokemon demos that have been available at Pokemon Centers in Japan have also started a little later in the story and usually let you run around a single route, so it could be the same case here. There's also a blurb that says "You can obtain a new Mega Evolution," meaning the goal of the demo will probably be to unlock or see this new Mega Evolution. Next month's CoroCoro issue will hit store shelves on the 15th.

We've obtained the product image for the "Mega Metagross Premium Collection" we first reported about last week. M Metagross-EX has 220 HP and its main attack might be named "Gatling Slug," but the rest of its details are too small to read (same for Metagross-EX). Thanks goes to Nico for the image and DorianBlack for helping to make out the attack name!

As reported before, the package will include include both a shiny Metagross-EX and shiny M Metagross-EX promo, a jumbo of the shiny M Metagross-EX card, eight booster packs, a playmat featuring shiny Mega Metagross, and a Metagross coin.

Thanks to PokeCollection, we now have a product image of the Hoenn Collection Box featuring Primal Groudon! As stated before, the box comes with a holo jumbo card of either Primal Groudon-EX or Primal Kyogre-EX, three special holos of Treecko, Torchic and Mudkip with alternate artwork, a new collector's pin featuring all three Hoenn Starter Pokemon, and three booster packs.

The product image below features 240 HP Primal Groudon-EX, who like a Mega Evolution evolves from Groudon-EX. Under its pre-evolution image it says "Primal Reversion," matching the video games mechanic. Most notably, Primal Groudon-EX features some sort of Ability or new type of mechanic named "Ω Barrier" which reads, "Whenever your opponent plays a Trainer card (excluding Pokemon Tools and Stadium cards), prevent all effect of that card done to this Pokemon." The Groudon card in this product is a jumbo, but it will likely be released in a normal size in our February set or through some other release.

Gamestop will be distributing shiny (Mega) Gengar and Diancie this fall. If you go into their stores from October 13th to October 26th, you can receive a serial code to download a shiny Gengar holding Gengarite. It is the same Gengar that will be distributed in Japan later this month. The Gengar is meant to celebrate both the Halloween season and Phantom Forces.

From October 27th to November 16th, you can also get a serial code to download Diancie for the first time. When you transfer Diancie to Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, you can then obtain its Diancite to Mega Evolve it into Mega Diancie.

Monday, September 8th, 2014 @ 9 AM PST -  By: Water Pokémon Master

Pokemon has officially revealed Phantom Forces for the first time, showing off plenty of new details we don't even know about the Japanese set yet and revealing English images of Gengar-EX, M Gengar-EX, and Gengar Spirit Link. The set will be released in stores November 5th.

Malamar-EX and Florges-EX will be joining Gengar-EX, Manectric-EX, Dialga-EX, and Aegislash-EX in this set. Also announced for the first time is a new "Full Metal" Dialga-EX which features etched artwork and a solid "metal" color. The set will feature seven Pokemon-EX cards, four full art Pokemon-EX, and of course M Gengar-EX and M Manectric-EX.

New Pokemon cards have also been confirmed through the set's theme deck descriptions: Venomoth, Yanmega, Pyroar, Loudred, Galvantula, Heliolisk, Kingler, Feraligatr (!), Frillish, and Jellicent. As we already knew previously, Diancie will also be in the set.

In terms of Trainers, there will be seven Team Flare Trainer cards and two special "Team Flare Hyper Gear" Pokemon Tool cards that can be attached to your opponent's Pokemon to hinder them (we already knew about one). Some of them will feature Team Flare members like Lysandre and Xerosic.

Additionally, a new "Gengar Spirit Link 2-Pack" will be exclusively hitting Gamestop's store shelves on October 13th. The blister pack will feature two Furious Fists booster packs and the Gengar Spirit Link card from the upcoming set.

Gengar-EX from Phantom Forces M Gengar-EX from Phantom Forces Gengar Spirit Link from Phantom Forces

The names and descriptions of the Phantom Forces theme decks have also been revealed, naming the Pokemon to be featured in the decks and vague details about what they do:

Burning Winds: Carry a fiery storm under your wings with the Burning Winds theme deck! Let Talonflame light up the sky with Jet Shoot, while Venomoth stirs up a Dizzying Wind to keep a foe guessing—and with Yanmega’s Windfall to refill your hand, you can fly the unfriendly skies with ease. Add in Pyroar’s Flare Command and Loudred’s Energy Press to turn your opponent’s resources in your favor, and total air superiority could be yours!

Bolt Twister: Lightning and water make a dangerous combination—for your opponents! Galvantula can spin a bright Electroweb, while Heliolisk powers up its Parabolic Spark. At the same time, Kingler can drop the big Crabhammer, and Feraligatr’s Hyper Whirlpool is ready to pull the foe under. To maximize your odds, Frillish and Jellicent confuse and befuddle opposing Pokémon—sometimes the path to victory takes a few twists and turns, and sometimes you can bolt to the top!
