Pokemon.com Wrote:Prepare for an epic adventure exploring a world filled with Pokémon in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

Your adventure takes place in Hoenn, a region that consists of a main island that stretches widely from east to west, along with countless small islets that dot the deep blue sea around it. A live volcano steams constantly in the heart of this green-covered island. Look forward to a region rich with natural beauty, a variety of Pokémon, and extraordinary people!

The identities of the Pokémon on the boxes of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire have been revealed! Their names are Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre, respectively. These Pokémon will have a great role to play in shaping the stories in which they each appear!

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire tell a grand tale that draws ever closer to the heart of the secrets behind Mega Evolution, said to be the greatest mystery of the Pokémon world. One of your many goals will be to seek out these powerful Pokémon and unlock their incredible potential.

During your journey through Hoenn, you’ll be able to build and invite friends to visit your personal Super-Secret Base! Come up with your own Secret Base design, including selecting and placing Decorations however you like. Then, using communication features, you’ll be able to easily connect with other players all 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 other base owners that you like, you can scout them as one of your Secret Pals and bring them back to your own Secret Base.

You can also use Super-Secret Bases to play 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.

Meet many interesting people and Pokémon Trainers as you travel across the Hoenn region, including Pokémon Professor Birch, who runs the Pokémon Lab in Littleroot Town. With him you will have your first meeting with the Pokémon that will become your partner on your journey, and a new bond will be born. You'll also encounter incredibly tough Trainers during your journey. Visit Pokémon Gyms, where Pokémon Trainers gather and Gym Leaders stand ready for Trainers to challenge them.

The Pokémon-Amie feature, which debuted in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, enables players to get closer to their Pokémon by petting them, playing games with them, and feeding them. You can play with the Pokémon on your team at any time using Pokémon-Amie—the more you care for your Pokémon in these ways, the deeper your bond will become. As your Pokémon become more affectionate toward you, they will be more likely to avoid attacks in battle, land critical hits on opponents, and perform more admirably than before.

During your adventure, you'll be able to create your very own Secret Base. Work on making a space that is all your own, just the way you like it. But that's not even the best part! Using communication features, you'll be able to easily connect with other players all around the world to share your Secret Bases with one another.

You won't raise your Pokémon just for battle in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. In Pokémon Contest Spectaculars, your Pokémon will compete to see who has the most appeal! There are five kinds of contests that you can choose to enter: Coolness, Beauty, Cuteness, Cleverness, and Toughness. Your Pokémon will be judged on its appeal based on one of these five conditions. Choose a contest condition in which your Pokémon excels, and enter it in one of the corresponding contests!

Enhance your Pokémon's ability to perform by feeding it Pokéblocks made from Berries. The type of Pokéblock you make is based on the color and variety of Berries you choose. When you feed them to your Pokémon, its contest conditions will improve according to the type of Pokéblock it eats!

During your adventure, you will battle Team Magma in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Team Aqua in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Led by Maxie, Team Magma seeks to increase the land, while Archie and Team Aqua wish to increase the seas. In order to bring about these grand plans, each will turn to the power of a Legendary Pokémon: Groudon or Kyogre. Team Magma pursues Groudon, while Team Aqua goes after Kyogre. What could be driving them to such lengths?

Look forward to encountering the Eon Pokémon Latios and Latias! In Pokémon Omega Ruby, you can team up with Latios, while Latias joins you in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. And it has been discovered that Latios and Latias can also Mega Evolve, another exciting moment to anticipate!

Partway through your adventure, you’ll become able to Soar in the sky. Gaze down over the wide Hoenn region as you Soar freely wherever you wish! Among the destinations you can reach using Soar are very special locations called Mirage spots. In Mirage spots, you may be able to find rare Pokémon that cannot be found elsewhere in the region, and you may be able to obtain valuable items.

The PokéNav Plus is your best friend on your journey. It's a handy tool that will help you navigate your adventure as a Pokémon Trainer. It provides a lot of useful information, making your adventure easier and more fun than ever. Outside of battles and special events, the PokéNav Plus will always be displayed on the lower screen of your Nintendo 3DS system. You can instantly switch between its four main functions with touch input, and be ready to play in no time.

Pokémon fans first enjoyed Pokémon Ruby Version and Pokémon Sapphire Version when it launched in 2003 for the Game Boy Advance. Now, a whole new generation of Pokémon fans will experience the dramatic storyline that unfolds in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.

Look forward to Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire when the games launch worldwide in November 2014!

Thank you everyone for being such a great community and good luck!

Community Events [October]
Community Events Calendar

Well, in an effort to drum some activity back into the forum, the forum's community contests and such will be making their return for the month of October! Unlike the forum's community events in the past, we, the staff team, will be striving to have contests and such repeated once a month at a set date, and to have something happening every day of a month if possible!

Don't worry though, this really isn't going to be as complicated as it sounds. Every month, this thread will be updated with that month's calendar, so if anybody wants to know what's happening that month, just check this thread, and hopefully you'll be filled in!

Now, at the moment it's not set which member of staff will be hosting each of these events, so they'll just be hosted by whoever gets around to it, I imagine, but don't worry, we'll be working on that soon!

New Mods! [8/12]
Ok everyone as most of you are aware the forum has been a bit slow as of late. To help bolster activity we, the Staff, are planning on doing a massive overhaul of the forum itself to both attract new members and bolster activity. To help with this we will be taking on a few new Moderators to assist us. Several applications were filled out and submitted giving us a decent amount of candidates to choose from and currently we will be promoting TWO new Moderators. The sections each new and current Staff member will be modding has not been fully decided upon yet seeing as we plan on moving a few sections around.

Please join me in welcoming both @Nisha and @❀ℬℓℴℴᴍ❀ to the PokeSun Staff and wish them luck!

Now for those of you who filled out an application and were not selected we MAY select another user to join these two if we need more help getting everything up and running again. This is not guaranteed of course but we are unsure if we have the necessary manpower to give the forum the face lift we want so it is still in the cards at the moment.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to submit an application and we will keep them on record for any future promotions ^^

Forum Overhaul [8/1]
Ok people PokeSun has gotten ridiculously quiet as of late and we need to change that immediately.

Cody, who apparently moved and had no Internet access, is supposed to be returning some time soon so hopefully we can get some work done. In the meantime I want ANY members with a suggestion for how we could improve our forum (section, topic, or activity wise) to PLEASE post in this thread so we can begin making changes to better our community and make it more active.

That being said seeing as there is little to no interest in our ASB now it will either be removed or completely reset so old battles are no longer an issue. If reset people who had already participated will be allowed to keep ONE of their Pokemon and half of their prize money. New refs will also be chosen so anyone who wishes to be a ref will have to fill out the Reffing Application found in the section and send it as a PM to me.

All RPG Updaters, myself included, need to become more active as well seeing as that section is also slowly dying due to inactivity...

Our League will now be accepting battlers over WiFi as well to try and expand our battling community a bit so any WiFi battlers who would like to become GL's please inform me and we will try to work out an arrangement. Any current GL's who have WiFi access I would also like for them to allow that type of battle in their gyms.

We will also be bringing back a regular CoTW (Card of The Week) in the TCG section as we haven't had one of those in a while along with MoTM (Member of The Month) and continuing with PoTM (Pokemon of The Month).

As I said before PLEASE post any and all suggestions here so we can begin work to improving our forum! Thank you ^^

ASB is back! [6/22]
You read correctly people our ASB has finally reopened and is ready to get back underway! It took longer than we would have liked but the improtant thing is that the ASB section is now open to everyone and new battles can begin immediately! We encourage anyone who had an unfinished battle prior to the closing to please do everything in your power to complete the battle. If your opponent is no longer active or has been away for an extended amount of time then the match is considered a draw so it will not hurt either players record.

Hope to see ASB become active once again and see new users join in to try it! Good luck to all and may you battle well ^^
