There's no shortage of new Pokémon information, is there? Check out this new video and additional screens of the new Mega Evolutions featured in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, and try not to wish too hard that it's November already. There's a whole summer to get through still. I know it's a tough wait, but we can push through it.

Both games will begin in the Hoenn region's Littleroot Town, and players can choose to start the game as a male or female character. Each character will be gifted a Mach or Acro Bike, with either suited to speed through the landscape or hop over bridges and stones. Along with the familiar starters Treecko, Torchic, or Mudkip, the games will feature several new Mega Evolutions, including the newly-announced Mega Sceptile, Mega Swampert, and Mega Diancie.

Details are still to come as far as how X and Y players can obtain Diancie in time for the November release, but we'll let you know when we know. When you transfer Diancie from Pokemon X or Y into Pokémon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire and use its Mega Stone, it will transform into the gorgeous Mega Diancie -- so you'll want to make sure you get on it.

I don't know if I can take any more hype right about now. Between this and all the E3 news, my wallet is looking a little sad. Which Pokémon game are you going to get, by the way? Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire?

Mega Slowbro looks happier in motion

There are certain Pokémon who warrant getting a Mega Evolution for the ensuing stat increases, and others who you just want to see in a new form. Slowbro is unquestionably one I was curious about for the latter reason...more

Mega Evolution didn't need to turn Salamence into a UFO

I love Salamence. It started with a love of Bagon, whom I named Bacon, like most sane people. He was a cute little sassy dinosaur man like previous generation favorite Larvitar. And suffering through Shelgon (worse than Pupi...more

All of Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire's gym leaders have giant eyes now

The one thing that irked me about Pokemon X and Y was the 2D art, which seemed to shy away from the series' trademark look to a more homogenized anime blob style. Brawly's re-design has to be the worst. He wears those creepy toe shoes.  Compare for yourself below.more

I'm pumped to dress up Pikachu like a little fancy man

One of my favorite parts of Pokémon Black & White was the ability to haze your magical pets by dressing them up and having them perform musical theatre, so putting Pikachu in drag in Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby sounds awesome to me. If you want to watch the full Pokémon trailer in all its awkwardly-paced Nintendo-approved sterile family-friendly glory, here it is.more

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby's secret bases are the base-t

Somehow, the revival of secret bases is enough to have me considering Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. I wasted ages originally seeking out the best laid out base so I could build a rocking pad with music mats, wa...more
