ORAS: Post-Game Strong

Gen III/Hoenn games were always my favorite because of the engaging post game. Rarely do I feel the need to keep playing past beating the elite four, but in Hoenn, this all changed. Last time I told you about my Alpha Sapphire post-game, I had caught Latias, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Deoxys, Mesprit, Lugia, Cresslia, Azelf, and Heatran. Now, I have many more accomplishments to tell you about!

 

Pokémon Bank

I decided to subscribe to Pokémon Bank and transfer over my Xerneas, Keldeo, Diancie, shiny Gengar, and a couple of other pokémon I knew I’d want to keep like Charizard, Blaziken, and Delphox. (X was fire heavy for me.)

Admittedly, I never beat Black. I didn’t like Unova. It’s a project for me to get that done so I can trade forward some of my other legendaries. Hopefully, I get there.

 

Wonder Trade

Over Christmas, my 12-year-old cousin showed me a bunch of the online features of this game. Since I’ve played since Red and Blue when there were no online capabilities, I kind of had no idea about all this stuff! She brought me into the modern age and traded me a Phione she had bred from her Manaphy.

My favorite thing she showed me was Wonder Trade, and over my little vacation I did a lot of wonder trading! The coolest thing I got in a wonder trade would be a Mesprit, which I put into the GTS to get a Ho-oh from Italy! You know, for unlocking more legendaries.

 

Favorites

Through GTS, I was also able to fish out a couple of other favorite pokémon I wanted. I grabbed a Piplup and a Drifloon for pokémon that were just sitting in my PC boxes!

I also made it my mission to collect all the eeveelutions. First, I worked up quite the collection of Eevee thanks to DexNav. I still have a couple unevolved Eevee handing out, of which I’ll definitely keep one as Eevee. Then, it was on to evolution! This is the first time I had ever gotten a Sylveon and it was the first eeveelution I was after. Umbreon came next, since it was night when I was playing. I then had to quest for evolutionary stones— finally, when I had a water stone, fire stone, and thunder stone I got myself Vaporeon, Flareon, and Jolteon. A quick detour to Petalburg Woods gave me Leafeon. Then I had to sleep on it and wait for the next day to snag Espeon. I had a bit of a fight with Shoal Cave, but once I found low tide, Glaceon completed my collection!

 

Legendaries

I got the Eon ticket before Christmas and was so happy I almost cried. That let me add Latios to my collection. I went after the other available legendaries, catching Thundurus, Dialga, Terrakion, Cobalion, Verizion, Entei, Suicune, Raikou (thanks to my Ho-oh from Italy!), Regice, Regirock, Registeel, and Regigigas. After that point, it was up to Omega Ruby to help me through.

I had already started Omega Ruby and had 5 badges. I quickly played through the last 3 already with Latios in tow and picking up Groudon along the way. Instead of challenging the elite 4, I decided to straight-up legendary hunt. I picked up another Ho-oh— I’m hoping to put my Italian one back into GTS for something else! Then I went straight into the cloud to get Tornadus. Finally, I used Pokémon Bank to pop my lake guardians into Omega Ruby as a short cut to Palkia. Those three went back to Alpha Sapphire along with Groudon, Tornadus, Palkia. That allowed me to catch  Landorus and Giratina! Once Blaziken gets to level 100, I will take on the last available legendaries of the game: Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem.

 

So, as you can tell, I’ve been busy!

How’s your ORAS post-game going?
