Mega Rayquaza was announced earlier today and looks to join Kyogre and Groudon as the legendaries for Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby with new forms/evolutions. Mega Rayquaza has a new ability called ‘Delta Stream’ which seems to be a new weather-inducing ability that makes super-effective moves against flying types no longer super-effective. However this ability only lasts while Mega Rayquaza is on the field. Mega Rayquaza will also be the recipient of a new move called ‘Dragon Ascent’ which is said to be the most powerful flying-type move.
For Pokemon X/Y players there is a surprise for you for the month of October. From now until October 31st trainers can receive a super-size Pumpkaboo through mystery gift. This Pumpkaboo is special as it’s been previously impossible to get a super-size Pumpkaboo with it’s hidden ability ‘insomnia‘. It arrives at level 50, with the item Rocky Helmet, and with the moves Trick-or-Treat, Astonish, Scary Face, and Shadow Sneak. Players once they download Pumpkaboo, they can trade with a friend to acquire the super-sized Gourgeist. This download is great for anyone who was interested in playing in the online battle competition ‘Trick-or-treat friendly‘ and didn’t have the required super-sized Gourgeist needed to participate. The ‘Trick-or-treat friendly’ runs from October 24th through October 26th and registration is from October 16th through October 23rd. Participants will also receive 5 rare candies just for participating.
The Pokemon TCG online game which was previously downloadable only on Canadian iPads is now available in North America, Europe and Australia. Players will need to have an eligible device (iPad 3 or iPad Mini with retina display), iOS 7 or higher, and 504MB of free space. Players can sign up with a new Trainer club account, or they can sign in using their existing one (used for Pokemon 3DS titles), even if they have never played the Pokemon TCG on desktop. Cards earned will sync between both desktop and iPad versions of the game.
