Meet Cosplay Pikachu and friends in the New Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Trailer


SteveMegaMetagrossMegaDiancieA new gameplay trailer and accompanying press release for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire have revealed the brand new Cosplay Pikachu, as well as further details about the Diancie and Metagross Mega Evolutions that MCM Buzz previously reported.

First off, we now know for definite that Mega Metagross is the “partner Pokémon” of Hoenn League Champion Steven. Mega Metagross weighs an enormous 2078.7 lbs, and stands at 2.5m (8’02”) tall, and has the ability Tough Claws, which increases the power of attacks that make physical contact with an opponent. Upon Mega Evolving, Metagross’s Attack, Defence, Special Attack and Special Defence stats all rise, with a massive increase also made to its Speed.

Mega Diancie, meanwhile, possesses the ability Magic Bounce, which makes any stat-changing or status-affecting move used by an opponent bounce back to the user. After Mega Evolving, Diancie’s Speed, Attack and Special Attack stats will rise significantly, great for using fast, powerful attacks like Diamond Storm and Moonblast. There are downsides, however: Mega Diancie also has reduced Defence and Special Defence stats, so trainers will have to make sure they get their attacks in first!

Aside from images, little information has so far been given about Cosplay Pikachu, other than that these quirkily dressed up Pokémon will be connected to Contest Hall in some way, but more details have been promised to us in August. The five cosplay outfits shown in the pictures below (Click to enlarge them) are Pikachu Rock Star, Pikachu Belle, Pikachu Pop Star, Pikachu Ph.D. and Pikachu Libre.

In addition to showing us these Pokémon designs, the press release also confirms the inclusion of Pokémon Amie in the new games, as well as stating that “Pokémon that appear and the rarity of each will differ between Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire”. Choose wisely, trainers!

Finally, both the trailer and the press release provide battle clips and a first look at some of Hoenn’s gym leaders, who have undergone something of a makeover. Check out the Hoenn League sporting their new outfits below:
