on November 13, 2014 1:59 PM

A new trailer, along with a blast of new information, reveals the all new Delta Episode in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. There are also plenty of opportunities to capture rare and Legendary Pokemon throughout the game.

In the Delta Episode, The Mossdeep Space Center, a research facility for studying space and rocket science, discovers that a giant asteroid is hurtling toward the planet. You must stop Team Magma and Team Aqua from attacking the facility. Meanwhile, a battle in space is brewing between the Sky High Pokémon Rayquaza and the DNA Pokémon Deoxys, a powerful Pokémon that can transform between four distinct Formes: Normal Forme, Attack Forme, Defense Forme, and Speed Forme. Rayquaza faces a fateful challenge that will determine the future of Hoenn.

Helping you restore peace to the Hoenn region are Sootopolis City’s Gym Leader, Wallace, and the Hoenn region’s Champion, Steven, both of whom hold secrets to stopping the asteroid. You’ll also meet Zinnia, a mysterious girl rumored to possess the key to the fate of the world. Zinnia wears a Mega Anklet set with one of the mysterious Key Stones, which allows her Salamence to Mega Evolve.

To catch the Legendary Pokémon Latias in Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Latios in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Trainers must first reach the Southern Island by acquiring and using an Eon Ticket. Eon Tickets will be distributed via the Mystery Gift function on the title menu. Codes for the Eon Ticket will be provided to Play! Pokémon organizers and North American StreetPass communities and will be active on November 21. Once a Trainer redeems an Eon Ticket in the game, the ticket can be shared with other players by activating StreetPass on BuzzNav.

Legendary Pokémon found in previous Pokémon titles will return in the remake through mysterious Mirage spots appearing around Hoenn. While exploring Mirage spots with Soar, you can battle and catch an array of powerful Legendary Pokémon including Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Uxie, Mesprit, Azelf, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus, Cresselia and Heatran. Encounters with Legendary Pokémon found in Mirage spots will vary based on which game is being played.

If you played the demo version of the game, you can also send over Ice-type Glalie equipped with a Mega Stone. You can also play Mine Cart Adventure with Poké Miles and Medals earned, a new PGL attraction that debuts in concert with this game. In Mine Cart Adventure, you must navigate carts on winding tracks to collect Berries and win a variety of Poké Balls.
