So, just when we thought we could relax after this last bit of OR/AS news, MORE news decides to just swing around the corner! I wasn't kidding when I said we've been getting a LOT of OR/AS updates lately! XD
Also, I'd like to point out that this bit of new news came from the OR/AS demo that will FINALLY be hitting the US on the 21st. This new news...happens to be two (at this point) new Mega Evolutions: Mega Steelix
, now with the Sand Force ability, and Mega Glalie
, armed with Refrigerate.
My opinions for these two: I'm not quite sure Steelix outright needed
a Mega, but looks like Mega Aggron is gonna have some competition for the title of "Most Defensive Pokemon". Plus, it helps that it looks pretty dang cool! ^_^ As for Mega Glalie...it's kinda hit-and-miss for me. While there's NO denying that Glalie oh-so DESPERATELY
needed something like this, I'm...not a fan of its design. I get that it's supposed to resemble some kind of oni mask, but I just can't help but feel its looks......silly...
Oh, and there's also some clarification about the other update, mainly concerning the MultiNavi, or rather the PokeNav Plus
, as it's known here in the US.
~The DexNav has some sort of search level mechanic that increases as you encounter more Pokemon. As this level increases, you're more and more capable for finding Pokemon with special moves or hidden abilities. On top of that, the DexNav will also allow you to register Pokemon into your Pokedex without
battling them by interacting with them in the overworld.
not only features a map of the Hoenn Region, but also the ability to track Pokemon and Secret Base locations. It also houses the Trainer's Eyes feature, which, for those who haven't played the original Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, allows you to rematch various trainers/Gym Leaders that you've fought before.
gives you access to special in-game TV shows that gives you information about various Pokemon, routes, and characters. You can gain access to more channels via StreetPass.
~And finally, the PlayNav carries over the PSS, Pokemon-Amie, and Super Training features from X and Y.
Last, but not least, some clarification on the Eon Flute. This item will, indeed, allow you to summon Latios/Latias (after you capture them of course) and fly around the skies above Hoenn. Up in the skies, you actually have free roaming control over your respective Eon Dragon, including the ability to speed up, slow down, or even do tricks, and you can land at any time over a route, island, or town. To bluntly summarize...it's like Fly on steroids!
Oh, and whole "fighting legendaries in the skies" thing...THEY WEREN'T JOKING!! Located in special places in the sky and unlocked through completing special requirements are small areas known as Mirage Spots
. Enter one of these, and you'll be able to fight one of numerous legendaries you can find in these spots, such as Reshiram, Ho-oh, Lugia, Zekrom, Dialga, and Palkia!
