We have received exclusive images of CoroCoro's Gaia Volcano and Tidal Storm pages a day ahead of the magazine's release! The pages reveal Kyogre-EX (#11/70) and Groudon-EX (#39/70) as well as Sceptile, Blaziken, and Swampert. Translations are below thanks to Franco T. and Bangiras! As posted earlier, the set will be released in Japan on December 13th.

Gaia Volcano will focus on Fire, Fighting, and Steel-type Pokemon while Tidal Storm will focus on Water, Darkness, and Fairy-type Pokemon. In other words, the two sets will be fighting each other!

Separate from CoroCoro, the product sell sheet has also revealed that the set's booster packs will come with special code cards that allow you to download Pokemon in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire that you can't get through normal gameplay. You can also download items. You will have to go to a website to redeem the codes. The cards will feature a screenshot from OR/AS and are meant to be collectible. No other specifics were revealed.

The Super Legend Set: Xerneas-EX and Yveltal-EX has also been showcased in CoroCoro. The package will come with reprints of the Pokemon's regular and full art Pokemon-EX cards from XY. However, the regular EX will be reprinted with America's exclusive XY promo artwork for the first time.

To discuss this news, post in this thread on our forums!

A product image for the 2014 World Championship Decks has finally been revealed! The decks that will be printed are, unsurprisingly, the winners of each age division: Andrew Estrada, Trent Orndorff, and Haruto Kobayashi. The fourth and final deck is currently obscured from view, so we don't know who else was selected. The decks do not have a specific release date, but will hit store shelves within the next three weeks.

These decks allow new players to practice with a real World Champion's deck, but as with every World Championship deck, the cards cannot be used in official tournaments. They are printed with special backs that do not make them legal. But if you want to practice the game, this is a perfect way to do so!

Mega Rayquaza's official artwork has been revealed on another CoroCoro page. It doesn't appear new information has been revealed about the Pokemon, but the image is too small to read right now. Stay tuned, as more / better quality pages will probably leak!

The bottom left corner of Mega Rayquaza's page shows a brand new poster for the next Pokemon movie second Mega Evolution special, which airs in Japan on November 6th. The poster features Primal Kyogre, Primal Groudon, and Mega Rayquaza.

Update (5:00 PM) - The Pokenav is now called the "Multinavi" and now has the features of Pokemon Amie and the Player Search System. It can also help you find Pokemon in the wild to register in your Pokedex - could that be what that one trailer shot of the player sneaking up on Pikachu was?

Hoopa in X and Y

A few months ago we posted the dialogue from the hidden Hoopa event programmed in to X and Y, including this tidbit about Hoopa's powers:

Its mysterious rings: “It’s said that Hoopa can use the power of the three rings it adorns itself with to move objects about as it pleases… That’s not all! I’ve also heard that when Hoopa unleashes its full power, the size of the rings can grow up to multiple miles in length! With such massive rings, apparently it can transport even entire islands!”

As we learned in last night's news story, you can now ride on Mega Latios and Latias through the skies of Hoenn, allowing you to visit clouds and islands to capture some Legendary Pokemon.

If we also look at the artwork for the Legendary Pokemon from last night's leak, you can clearly see Dialga, Palkia, Reshiram, and Zekrom are coming through portals that have gold rings around them. Furthermore, there appears to be a silhouette of a Pokemon within the portal next to Reshiram. The silhouette seems to resemble Hoopa or Diancie (it's hard to tell for sure), though Diancie is getting a distribution right before these games come out and wouldn't need to be caught in-game like the four other Legendaries.

Hoopa in ORAS?

Furthermore, Palkia can control space, but in all of its franchise depictions it has never come through a portal that isn't pink, let alone one with a golden ring around it. Is mischievous Hoopa pulling these Legendary Pokemon through its portals to the Hoenn region?

To speculate about this evidence, check out this thread on our forums!

Mega Beedrill, Mega Pidgeot, Mega Latios, and Mega Latias have all been revealed in CoroCoro. Thanks goes to Franco T. for the translations!

  • Mega Beedrill is Bug / Poison and its Ability is Adaptability. Its Attack and Speed increase.
  • Mega Pidgeot is Normal / Flying and its Ability is No Guard. Its Special Attack increases.
  • Like the originals, Latios is obtainable in Omega Ruby while Latias is in Alpha Sapphire. Also like the originals, CoroCoro will be giving away a serial code to obtain the Eon Ticket, which allows you to travel to Southern Island to catch the opposite version's Pokemon.
  • With the new Eon Flute item, you can actually fly over Hoenn on the backs of Mega Latios and Mega Latias. You can freely turn and accelerate the Pokemon like planes. You will then be able to encounter Dialga, Palkia, Reshiram, Zekrom, and other wild Pokemon in Hoenn's clouds as well as on islands that can only be reached through this method of flight. The Legendary Pokemon are specifically found in special clouds and islands called "Mythical Places," as you can see in the fourth scan below with what appears to be Zekrom's black storm cloud.

Mega Rayquaza in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Mega Rayquaza was just revealed in the NicoNico live stream! Unlike Kyogre and Groudon, Mega Rayquaza is a Mega Evolution, but will "achieve Mega Evolution in a special way" that's different from other Pokemon. It's said that the way it Mega Evolves is somehow related to its unique biology. Rayquaza is also said to be connected to the mysteries of Mega Evolution, which will be revealed in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

Mega Rayquaza is Dragon/Flying and almost all of its stats get a boost, especially its Physical and Special Attack. Its new signature attack is named Dragon Ascent, which is said to be the most powerful Flying-type move and exclusive to the Sky High Pokemon. Its new Ability is named Delta Stream - "Powerful moves like Rain Dance, Sunny Day, Sandstorm, and Hail will fail in the face of strong winds whipped up by Mega Rayquaza, while Abilities like Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream, and Snow Warning will not even activate. In addition, moves of a type to which Flying-type Pokemon are usually susceptible will only deal normal damage."

The protrusion from Mega Rayquaza's face gives off particles that can control the humidity and concentration of gas in the air, allowing it to manipulate the weather. Its skin is also said to be shiny green like an emerald.

Some expanded information about Kyogre, Groudon, and Rayquaza's history in the Hoenn region was also revealed:

Mega Rayquaza in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

It was a primal age, early in the world's history... The natural world was overflowing with energy. That energy granted Groudon and Kyogre an overwhelming power. Seeking ever more of that energy for themselves, the two clashed again and again, and their battles cast the people and Pokémon of Hoenn into great danger. Brimming with the overwhelming power granted by the energy of nature, this transformation was named by later people "Primal Reversion." And the people called their tormentors Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre.

One Pokémon looked down upon this battle from the sky above. The Pokémon that dances in the heavens: Rayquaza. Rayquaza is venerated by the people of Hoenn as their protector and savior. When Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre had battled for 20 dawns and 20 nights, the world began to lose its natural balance and tilt toward destruction. The people, unable to endure any more, cried out to their mighty savior Rayquaza before a great stone that shone with rainbow brilliance. And a change came upon Rayquaza, weaving in the sky above Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre. Suffused in brilliant light, its body began to transform visibly. And then...
