hoenn

Alpha, Omega, Mega

Well, I’m officially on Alpha Sapphire & Omega Ruby watch!  Whenever I’m having a bad day, it seems Pokémon comes to my rescue and releases bits of information on the much-anticipated Hoenn remakes.  The other day, pouting through my to-do list, I saw this video tweeted out:

Doesn’t Hoenn look fabulous in 3D?!  On to the point of this video: here in gen 6, Mega Evolutions are a thing, so of course they’ll be around in Alpha Sapphie and Omega Ruby.  This video shows up the Mega versions of the Hoenn starters, Sceptile, Swampert, and Blaziken.  We’ve seen Mega Blaziken before, of course.  I even had him on my team fighting through Kalos.  Pokémon’s twitter also let up know that Sceptile’s Mega Evolution gains a Dragon type, which makes it at least 75% cooler.  Swampert’s Mega Evolution apparently gains the Swift Swim ability, but that bulky dude doesn’t look too swift to me.  

The video also previews the newest pokémon announced, Diancie.  Sure, we’ve heard a lot about Diancie, but it seems like the distribution is coming up soon.  The COOLEST thing the video shows is Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre.  There’s still some questions in my head about these forms, but I’m assuming they’re different than Mega Evolution.

Twitter has been a wealth of information lately, as Mega Sableye was revealed the other day.  Best of all, it has given us A RELEASE DATE!!!  November 21st, I can’t wait to see you!!!

Who’s as excited as I am for Hoenn remakes?!

Charizard, Hoenn, and the most excited I’ve ever been

TGIF, guys!  Seriously, it has been quite the week.  I need me some weekend in the worst way.  Amidst some unpleasantness this week, the Pokémon Twitter feed made me smile by announcing it was Charizard week!  Charizard is my first favorite, and perhaps still is the ultimate.  Seeing this awesome Charizard pokémon card collage made the stress temporarily melt away.

The best news, however, came on Wednesday… and by best news, I mean best freaking news I could think of.  I’ve been wondering when a new pokémon version would come out for a while now.  I didn’t expect anything, but I was itching for a new adventure.  It’s also worth mentioning that Gen 3 is my favorite generation.  Of course I loved the original, but the Hoenn region was just so appealing to me– the range of geography, the imaginative towns!  Gen 3 also features the remakes of the Gen 1 games, so that helps boost its status with me, but really it’s Hoenn that I want.  The Gen 4 remakes of the Gen 2 games made me love them more, but I still love Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald more than anything. On Wednesday, crazy pokémon fanatics like me got news of a dream come true: HOENN REMAKES!!  OMEGA RUBY & ALPHA SAPPHIRE!

I can’t wait to see Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire!  There’s like no information on them yet, but they are reservable at Game Stop and you can bet I will be reserving them both!  I will be counting down the days until November! Thanks, Pokémon for making my entire week! Any Hoenn trainers as excited as I am?!
