It’s Deoxys vs. Rayquaza in Pok?mon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire’s new Delta Episode

New details on the story, legendaries, and Mine Cart minigame

Legendary Pokémon Deoxys is back in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire — and he’s battling Rayquaza in space! Today’s trailer shows some of the new Delta Episode, a storyline centered around an asteroid headed toward the planet (these games don’t take place on some alternate-universe Earth, do they? That’d be cool.) A new character, Zinnia, and her Mega Salamence are also wrapped up in the disaster plot, as are Team Magma and Team Aqua. They never stay home.

The Legendary titans Regirock, Regice, and Registeel (plus Regigigas) are in these remakes as expected, but the list goes on and on: Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Uxie, Mesprit, Azelf, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus, Cresselia, and Heatran; all in the games. You’ll be able to find them using Mirage spots while flying above Hoenn with the Soar ability.

Lastly, there’s a new Pokémon Global Link minigame dubbed Mine Cart Adventure. After spending some of your Poké Miles and Medals, you can play — “navigate carts on winding tracks to collect Berries,” reads the official description — to win different types of Poké Balls.
