Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire – Mega Beedrill and Pidgeot Revealed


Two more generation one Pokemon have been revealed to be able to Mega evolve in the latest issue of Japan’s much-loved gaming magazine ‘CoroCoro’, neither of which us here at SnapThirty saw coming. Representing Viridian Forest of the Kanto region, the two latest Mega evolutions are none other than Beedrill and Pidgeot. Revealed alongside them is the Mega Evolutions of Latios and Latias but any true Pokemon fan would have already known about them seeing as they were leaked many months ago back when Pokemon X and Y was first released.

Though that doesn’t make it any less exciting. After Mega Evolving, Pidgeot gains the ability ‘No Guard’, an ability that acts exactly how it sounds; it makes it so enemies can always be hit, even during invulnerability periods like when a Pokemon uses Fly. Beedrill, also retaining its type combination of Bug and Poison, gains the ability Adaptability which changes STAB moves from a 1.5x buff to a 2x buff.

Not much has been revealed about Mega Latios and Latias apart from that you can actually use them to fly above the Hoenn region to battle Pokemon soaring above the clouds and to find special, hidden islands wherein which other Legendary Pokemon can be found so long as you have the Eon Flute item.

Getting Latios and Latias in game is a little different; before being able to actually find them you first have to get yourself an item called the Eon Ticket which will come to individuals through a special distribution plan that has yet to be announced outside of Japan. They will be getting it from the next ‘CoroCoro’ issue.

Also revealed in the new issue is the MultiNav which will replace the PokeNav from the original Ruby and Sapphire. This MultiNav will host four different features, all of which crucial to fully enjoying the new game: MapNavi, TVNavi, PlayNavi and DexNavi. PlayNavi will, within itself, feature other selections like GTS and Pokemon Amie. The rest are exactly have they sound.

We’re now only one month away from the official worldwide release of the game on the 21st of November (28th in Europe…sorry, Euro gamers) and anticipation could not be higher! Let the trumpets sound as we fly back in time, revisiting old friends, re-battling old enemies and reliving one hell of an awesome adventure!
