Pokemon games are little gems of RPG, which have you addictively collecting Pokemon until the end of the game is met.  The real challenge is ‘catching them all’.  Through trading and lots of time and energy, it is possible.  Poke-fans, keep collecting.  Today we are looking at the newest entries in the Pokemon franchise, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire which are for the 3DS, 3DSXL, and 2DS.


In this game, players will collect and fight their way through the Hoenn region, trying to stop a secret group who plan to mess with Hoenn forever.  A new feature to use is Soar, so flight over the region is also possible now.  The two Legendary Pokemon of these games are Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre.  Both Groudon and Kyogre both undergo a new Primal Reversion transformation, which unleashes new power from within your Pokemon, as well as Mega Evolutions and the ability to Pokemon favorites.

This game introduces a nifty feature called a Secret Base, where players create and decorate their own secret base with items collected along their journey throughout the game.  You can even share your base with other players via local wireless of QR Code generated in game.

Trading in Ruby and Sapphire is very easy- now with the touch of a button, players can search for friends to trade with, opening and entire planet of Pokemon Trainers and Traders.

My son loves Pokemon and the ability to collect new ones is exciting for him.  This game is a bit over his head in terms of the reading and what is going on, but since he is able to go at his own pace, he can move along as he wants to.

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are available now for the 3DS system for a price of $39.99 and is available everywhere fine games are sold as well as the Nintendo eShop.

    My kids haven’t really gotten into Pokemon but I think it’s because they really haven’t had much exposure to it. This game sounds like fun though, and I’m sure they’d love it!

  2. Wow! My kids would LOVE this, although it sounds co fusing and complicated to my mom brain 😉

    How fun! My son hasn’t discovered Pokemon yet but I’m sure he will any day! I really want to get him a 3DS- but mostly so that I have one. 🙂
