Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Do you have any tips for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire?

Games Guru:

  • When choosing your Pokémon party (the Pokémon you take with you in the field), make sure you have a good selection of Pokémon types. That way, you’ll be prepared to battle against Pokémon of different types, with different strengths and weaknesses.
  • If your Pokémon party is full, any Pokémon you catch will be automatically sent to your PC Box at the Pokémon Center!
  • To level up a weak Pokémon, put it in the first position in your party. That will make it first into battle. Then immediately switch it out for a stronger Pokémon. This gives the weak Pokémon a share of the battle’s Experience Points so it will level up quickly.
  • Each Pokémon has a type. For example, Pikachu is an Electric-type Pokémon. Each type has strengths and weaknesses in battle against other types. Learn these and you will do much better on your journey.
  • There are many ways that Pokémon evolve other than by gaining Experience Points. For example, some Pokémon evolve based on their friendship level with you, some by trading and some by leveling up in a special location.

    When you have a Genisect in your party(Black/White V2), talk to the man in Mauvile who is waiting for a Genisect. He will give you drives to change the types of techno blast!

    As the name suggests IM just crazy about pokemon, so queston when you first meet the eighth gym leader (can’t spell the darn name!) does anybody notice how he mentions AZ from X and Y?

  11. go alpha sapphire

  12. The best thing to do is find the type advantages and disadvantages, get fire, water and grass type pokemon that are only those types and for dragon get a pokemon that has or can learn a dragon type move but isn’t a dragon type

  13. go to GTS for genesect.

  14. We are getting ORAS soon.

    Tip for people in the delta episode:
    I have learned the heard way how hard deoxys is to catch!
    MASTER BALL HIM!!!!!!!

  19. Oh I caught Deoxys and all the legendaries in a poke ball and defeted the champion about 35 times and have caught all the pokemon in the pokedex.

  20. I have it and have a Arceus from the new pokemon movie shiny and a level 100 zekom with the move bolt strike.

  21. HO-OH for trade!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!;-)

  22. Alpha has Latias (weaker of the two) Omega has Latios (the better one)

  23. does anyone want a Diancie???? I would give you one for an Arceus.

    If you are just starting to pick your starter think of it as a Pokemon for each h type of trainer. Fire is usually for people who just want to pound away at their enemy with all attacks, grass is for people who want to be very strategic most of the time using effects against their opponents. Water is centered more commonly used by people who want to raise their stats with something like dragon dance. Hope these tips help you pick a good starter. But this isn’t always true but is a general basis, it also depends on the secondary type.

  25. my friend has this game and he say’s it’s an awesome game

  26. When will Hoopa be available??? Also, will it be Z, X2/Y2, Delta Z, or Delta Emerald??? If you need help on non-speculation, or some speculation, i’m here to help. I’ve been playing since Black & White, but I have also played Heart Gold and Platinum, and I can give tips on all the games from HG onward. I can also help on SSB4, SSBB, Pokepark, Pokemon conquest, and all the Pokemon Rumble Games. If you need help just ask!!! BTW, use your MasterBall on Deoxys in ORAS.
