TPCi has revealed all of the information that leaked in CoroCoro the past few days. Instead of repeating it here, you can just read it below along with a plethora of in-game screenshots, a new trailer from YouTube, and full HD artwork of all the characters revealed thus far!

The Pokémon Company International today announced exciting new features and story elements of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. A brand new gameplay trailer has also been released, giving fans a deeper look at what they will discover in their new adventure through the Hoenn region.

New Mega-Evolved Pokémon Mega Metagross!

A new Mega-Evolved Pokémon was revealed today—Mega Metagross. Metagross is the partner Pokémon of Pokémon League Champion Steven, whose deep bond helps it to Mega Evolve into Mega Metagross. Despite helping Trainers throughout their journey, Steven is the last obstacle for Trainers to overcome before becoming the Pokémon League Champion.

Mega Metagross, the Iron Leg Pokémon, is a massive Steel- and Psychic-type Pokémon standing at 2.5 m (8’02”) and weighing 942.9 kg (2078.7 lbs). Upon Mega Evolving, Metagross’s Ability changes to Tough Claws, which increases the power of attacks that make physical contact. Mega Metagross also has a greatly increased Speed stat, with additional increases in its Attack, Defence, Sp. Atk, and Sp. Def, making Mega Metagross primed for both offense and defense.

Deepen Your Bonds with Pokémon-Amie and Meet Cosplay Pikachu!

First introduced in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, Pokémon-Amie returns in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Pokémon-Amie allows Trainers to create close ties with their Pokémon by playing games together, petting them, and feeding them special snacks called Poké Puffs. As a player’s Pokémon become more affectionate, they will be more likely to do such things as evade attacks in battle, land critical hits, and get an overall boost in performance.

Players will see Pikachu like they’ve never seen it before—Cosplay Pikachu—in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Meet Pikachu Rock Star, Pikachu Belle, Pikachu Pop Star, Pikachu Ph.D., and Pikachu Libre! They seem to have a connection to a kind of Contest Hall. Players will also be able to interact with Cosplay Pikachu in Pokémon-Amie. More information about the new Cosplay Pikachu images shown today will be revealed in August!

Journey through the Hoenn Region

Your Hoenn adventure begins when you meet Pokémon Professor Birch, who runs the Pokémon Lab in Littleroot Town. Professor Birch will help players begin their journey by giving them their first Pokémon and a Pokédex. The Pokémon that appear and the rarity of each will differ between Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.

The first step to becoming the Champion is to challenge and defeat each of the Gym Leaders in the Hoenn region, including the main character’s father, Norman, who is the Leader of the Petalburg City Gym. It was also confirmed today that players will encounter and battle Rustboro City Gym Leader Roxanne, Dewford Town Gym Leader Brawly, Mauville City Gym Leader Wattson, and Lavaridge Town Gym Leader Flannery.

After defeating eight Gym Leaders, players will travel to the Pokémon League to battle the Elite Four, including Sidney and Phoebe. Upon defeating the Elite Four, Trainers will take on the Hoenn League Champion, Steven, and his Mega Metagross, in the hope of becoming the new Pokémon League Champion!

More Information on Mega Diancie Revealed!

When Diancie Mega Evolves into Mega Diancie, it will get the Magic Bounce Ability, which makes any status condition or stat-lowering effect bounce back at the Pokémon trying to inflict it. Through Mega Evolution, Mega Diancie receives a big boost to its Speed, as well as boosts to its Attack and Sp. Atk, while experiencing a reduction in its Defense and Sp. Def. The boosts help Mega Diancie with its quick, powerful attacks, such as Diamond Storm and Moonblast.

Further details of how players can get Diancie for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will be shared soon. Players who receive Diancie can Mega Evolve it in Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.

Pokemon

According to licensing industry publication License! Global, The Pokemon Company International is estimated to generate $1.5 billion annually. To put that in perspective, the publication ranks the following companies as making less revenue than Pokemon: Coca-Cola, the NHL, Sony Pictures, Chrysler, Martha Stewart Living, Playboy, General Mills, Harley-Davidson, Lego, TGI Fridays, Nissan, Energizer, HGTV Home, Food Network, Kraft Foods, and PokeBeach.com (:p).

Whether or not the publication's actual figure is accurate, Pokemon's estimated rank is still pretty darn impressive. Most of that money probably comes from the games and of course merchandising and licensing. Who knows how much revenue is actually taken home at the end of the day though, especially when three companies own the franchise (Nintendo, Creatures, and Gamefreak). The publication says that TPCi itself generates that figure, but it's likely they mean to refer to the brand as a whole since they point out all of Pokemon's assets (TPCi in Washington works out of a very small office).

Next time someone tells you Pokemon is dead, be sure to gently shove this news in their face. :p

CoroCoro is continuing to leak, revealing some new Ken Sugimori artwork for the Gym Leaders, Elite 4, and Professor Birch. Several Pikachu in costumes are also featured in Pokemon Ami - they are named Madame Pikachu, Hard Rock Pikachu, Masked Pikachu, Doctor Pikachu, and Idol Pikachu. They seem be related to Pokemon Contests and dressing up your Pokemon. The PokeDex has also been redesigned and looks almost exactly like a Gameboy Advance. Continue to check back for more scans!

An early CoroCoro leak has revealed Mega Metagross, which will of course be used by Steven Stone. Steven will be using a Mega Brooch to Mega Evolve it. Its information has been revealed in a second scan below, but it's far too blurry to read. You can see Mega Metagross' Ken Sugimori art as well as the new artwork for the Gym Leaders. There may be more pages in the magazine featuring Pokemon - we'll find out soon!

As expected, Secret Bases (now called "Super-Secret Bases") will be returning in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. You can now generate your own QR code so that people around the world can enter your Secret Base and battle you - and your Secret Base can now be like its own Pokemon Gym! Other features have also been added, as described below.

A new character, Aarune, will show you how to make a Secret Base in the games. He owns a Flygon.

Secret Bases in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Super-Secret Bases are an awesome new way to express your creativity and join up with friends in the upcoming Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire games. Create a Secret Base that’s all your own, including selecting and placing Decorations however you like. You can use Decorations to create tricks in your Secret Base, decide the rules for what kind of Pokémon battles are allowed there, and make it like your very own Pokémon Gym! Then get ready for other players to come and challenge you!

Using communication features, it’s easy to connect with other players around the world to share your Secret Bases with one another. When you visit another player’s Secret Base, that base’s members will be hanging out there. You can talk to them or even battle them! If you find base owners that you like, you can scout them as one of your Secret Pals and bring them back to your own Secret Base. Once you’ve become Secret Pals with someone, you can continue to have Pokémon battles against them, and also have your Pal use “special skills” to support you on your adventure.

Another fun aspect of Super-Secret Bases is a capture-the-flag activity. Examine the flag beside the Secret PC in another player’s Secret Base to obtain it! You can take one flag per day from each base visited. Visit lots of Secret Bases and collect lots of flags to improve your team’s rank and get rewards, including increasing the skills of your Secret Pals. Flag colors will change based on a team’s rank, so you can tell another team’s rank at a glance—and others can tell yours!

You can share your Super-Secret Base with Trainers all over the world! Symbolize your Secret Base with a QR Code. With a QR Code, you can get the Secret Base of a particular player you’ve been wanting to visit.

To help you get started with Super-Secret Bases, you’ll meet Secret Base Expert Aarune. Aarune and his Flygon are world travelers, bursting with excitement about the Secret Base culture in the Hoenn region. This enthusiastic adventurer will teach you all about the fun of Secret Bases during your journey.
