After eleven years, the Hoenn region is returning to handhelds the world over. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be arriving on US shores November 21, bringing with them updated versions of Ruby and Sapphire that also tie in to X and Y.
The Hoenn region starters are celebrating by getting their own Mega Evolutions. Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire's updated storyline will explore the mystery of Mega Evolution even further as an untold number of Mega Stones have yet to be discovered or identified in the Hoenn region. Team Magma and Team Aqua likely will have an interest in the Mega Stones for their own goals, so be prepared to assemble the best Pokémon team you can to stop them.
Groudon and Kyogre also seek to continue their epic struggle. Thanks to a new phenomenon known as Primal Reversion, the two great legendary Pokémon have reclaimed their original power from nature and are much stronger than before. Like Mega Evolution, Primal Reversion is a recent phenomenon in the Pokémon world. There may be a connection between the two, but various Pokémon Professors are still working that out.
The Primal versions of both Groudon and Kyogre are much larger than their normal form, with Primal Kyogre reaching at least twice the normal size. The reversion also gives both Pokémon some new abilities. Primal Groudon will receive a massive attack boost and gain the Fire type in addition to its normal Ground type. Primal Kyogre will see a similar increase in its special attack and might have a boost in its normal ability that's yet to be confirmed.
Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire will return from the pages of Pokémon history this November 21 on the 3DS and 2DS as Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
