So tomorrow I'm going to go out and buy either Pokémon Alpha Sapphire or Omega Ruby, and I was just wondering which one I should buy? What are the differences to each one? Also I can't believe I'm this far behind in the game series. xD

Well, the obvious differences are the version game legendaries (kyogre and groudon), also one game as Latias, and the other has Latios. However, if you have the eon ticket from streetpassing w/ someone who has an eon ticket you can get the other one. I think there might be some version exclusive pokemon and some post-game legendaries are exclusive to each game too. Both Team Magma and Team Aqua appear in both games, but depending on the game, one team is the main team and the other is the "just there" team lol.

I have the Omega Ruby game because my sister wanted the Alpha Sapphire game. If I had my way, I would have wanted the Alpha Sapphire game because Kyogre lol...

I bought Alpha Sapphire for the reason that I had Sapphire when that came out. Did the same for when HeartGold came out. Kyroge served me well in the Pokemon League.

I pre-ordered Alpha Sapphire and have both but I have more time invested in AS than OR (over 500 hours in AS to OR's 100 hours).

Granted Alpha Sapphire is where I have all my competitive Pokemon and the game I use to play online with, so the numbers are skewed.

It's all up to preference really.

I was going to go buy it tonight but my local store closed early because of the bad weather. ;_; I'm probably going to go pick Pokémon Alpha Sapphire though. ^_^

I have AS and completed it, don't worry I will not spoil it for you and it is great. I had Sapphire originally and now trying to complete the DexNav. That will take a while.

I prefer sapphire, but I ended up buying ruby as well last week because I love gen 3 and I want all the post game legendaries

Out of the two I liked Alpha Sapphire the most, but both of the games are still amazing. I just prefer the way Primal Kyogre looks and the Team Aqua storyline a bit more than Primal Groudon and the Team Magma storyline. I hope you enjoy either of the games as much as we all did haha!
