In 2014, Japan saw the release of big Pocket Monster games Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. The games sold a ton in Japan, but not enough to reign supreme. A new challenger has taken the crown: Yokai Watch.
Magikarp is sad. Pathetic. He sucks. Yet, one brave gamer apparently became a Poké champ with what is largely considered to be the worst Pocket Monster around.
In the original Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, there is a hot springs in Lavaridge Town. Players could go and soak in the steamy water with some old ladies. Lavaridge Town returns in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. So does the bathing. The grannies, it seems, do not.
Remember those neat transparent 2DS consoles? Nintendo confirmed that they'll be out in North America alongside Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire on November 21. Each handheld will retail for $99.99, but unlike their European counterparts, they will not come with a copy of Pokémon ORAS pre-installed.
