CoroCoro Magazine Reveals Mega Metagross, Plus Pokémon TCG on Nintendo eStore

metagrossThis month’s issue of CoroCoro Magazine has revealed a design for Mega Metagross, set to feature in the upcoming Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire games. With Metagross a firm fan favourite, a Mega form of this Pokémon has long been anticipated by Pokémaniacs around the world.

In the image from the magazine released online, Mega Metagross is shown behind Elite Four Steel-type Master and rare stone collector Steven Stone, suggesting that this character will possess the Pokémon and its Mega Stone in the new games. Back in June, Nintendo explained that in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the “mysterious and elegant young man” will take on a bigger role than in Ruby and Sapphire,  “lend[ing] his help in the pursuit of the true story behind the origins of Mega Evolution and the Legendary Pokémon”. Perhaps we can expect to see the concept of Mega Evolution introduced by him following an encounter similar to that with Korrina in Pokémon X and Y. Gamer Headlines points out that in the original Gen III games, players can find Beldum (Metagross’s stage one form) in Steven’s house after defeating his Metagross in battle, so it seems likely that in the new games, we’ll also be able to get hold of a Metagrossite (?) at his home.

Further images from CoroCoro also reveal a brand new Pokédex design, seemingly based on the Game Boy Advance system, and some interestingly attired Pikachu – named by Serebii as Madame Pikachu, Hard Rock Pikachu, Idol Pikachu, Doctor Pikachu and Masked Pikachu – which are apparently related to contests. According to Serebii, the magazine confirms that Pokémon Amie will feature in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, as well as promising more contest Pikachu designs in the next issue.


In other Pokémon-related news, this week saw the release of Pokémon Trading Card Game (originally released on Game Boy Color) on the 3DS eShop in Europe, offering older fans an opportunity to indulge in a little nostalgia, and perhaps introducing younger ones to a great game too. Pokémon TCG is priced at £4.49 and the download takes up just 65 blocks.

Are there any other Mega Pokémon you’re hoping to see introduced in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire? Let us know in the comments!
