* For those who admire the battle animations, you can now play (and pause) them for any Pokemon you have caught via the Pokedex (instead of it being just the standard non-action animation), including Mega Evolutions. In X and Y the only way to see the animations for the mega evolutions in the game was to actually battle with them.

* Behold. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ywGSON9tNq0 Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]] are coming out internationally on November 2014... Mere MINUTES after this was announced, the '''''ENTIRE POKEMON FANDOM EXPLODED IN UTTER JOY NOT TWICE, BUT THREE TIMES.''''' Which really makes you say... ''[[MemeticMutation Hoenn Confirmed]]!''

** Steven Stone's new design [[ClassyCravat is]] [[BadassInANiceSuit awesome]], and he can use Mega Evolutions too. He's also the champion again!

** Not only is Wally back, he now uses a Gallade, that can Mega Evolve no less.

** Rayquaza gets a Mega Evolution that not only has an ''outstanding'' design, it gets a new ability called "Delta Stream", which creates a new weather effect that removes other weathers and causes super effective attacks against Flying-types to do neutral damage. As a Mega Evolution, it also gets the standard 100-point boost to its stats, making it as powerful as Mega Mewtwo X and Y. Rayquaza can now perform its role as the mediator between Groudon and Kyogre, because his new Ability will even '''''nullify Primal Groudon/Primal Kyogre's abilities, even when they're still on the field!'''''. And it does not need a Mega Stone! The only pre-requisite to Mega-evolve Rayquaza is the new move Dragon Ascent! It is a Legendary that Mega-Evolves that can pack a Held Item other than a Mega Stone!

* Huh. Some new scans are out. Brawly's new design seems pretty cool, and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming awwwww! How sweet! The Pokedex is paying homage to the Game Boy Advance]]...what's this in the far left corner? Wait...is that...POKEMON AMIE IS BACK?!?!?!?!
* While Wattson is still shown with a Magneton, Phoebe has a Dusknoir. It's nothing confirmed, but perhaps the Hoenn Pokédex is redesigned to include the new evolutions that debuted in G4. With Wally having a Mega Gallade, a Pokemon that's from a Gen 4 split evolution chain, this is becoming more of a possibility now.
** More or less confirmed when the official site has shown that Salamence (a late-Pokédex Pokémon) got bumped up by amount of the Generation IV Pokémon related to those in Hoenn's Pokédex.
* Oh, hordes are back as well! That's pretty convenient...oh, five Grunts are challenging me all at once? Wait, '''[[OhCrap trainer horde battles]]'''?!

** It's been revealed that this is achieved through one of the [=PokéNav=]'s (or [=PokéNav Plus=] as it's now called) new functions, the [=DexNav=]. This feature also allows you to record any Pokemon you talk to in the overworld as seen.

* Not only does the Eon Ticket event return (and is now ''shareable via StreetPass''), but the Latis have been given a bigger storyline - you and Steven will set out in a sidequest to rescue your version's Lati, and according to a trailer they ''join your team on their own will'', meaning you won't have to chase them around the region to catch them! In addition, by using a new item called the Eon Flute, you can ride them over '''the near majority of the region''' in their Mega Evolutions. VisualEffectsOfAwesome at its finest.

* Going off of the above, apparently at some point in the game you can get ''Deoxys''. Is there any chance we might get the other event legendaries as well?
** Oh, the Deoxys stuff gets better. It looks from what we've seen like you encounter Deoxys by '''''FLYING INTO SPACE ON MEGA RAYQUAZA'S BACK.'''''[[note]]'''HOENN CAN INTO SPACE!'''[[/note]]
* The Elite Four get upgraded teams with levels in the 70's in rematches... ''and ALL of them have Mega Evolutions.'' Given how people were dissapointed at the lack of Elite Four rematches in X and Y, this is a huge step up.

Added DiffLines:

* EV training through horde encounters is now a lot more convenient. First, there are certain routes where, if you initiate a horde battle, you're guaranteed to get a Pokemon that raises the EV of a specific stat, meaning you won't have to get pissed off whenever you encounter a Cubchoo horde instead of a Vanillite horde. Second, Sweet Scent is no longer affected by the weather, which is especially convenient since two of the routes have perpetual weather conditions.

* The [[GottaCatchEmAll Gotta catch 'em all]] slogan is real! With all four games (and some considerable effort) it's finally possible to get all non-event Pokémon in the same generation for the first time since Generation '''III'''![[note]]From an overall perspective, this trait isn't all that special, considering how you can catch 'em all in half of the main games as of now. However, Gen I let you obtain every Pokémon in the Pokédex (counting Mew, via a glitch) because at the time, there was just one generation and 151 Pokémon; meanwhile, Gen III only included this feature because the Game Boy Advance is incompatible with the Game Boy & Game Boy Color. Generations II, IV, and V, and VI all feature methods of transferring Pokémon from previous generations, making it unnecessary to feature every non-event Pokémon in normal gameplay. Before ''Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire'', the ability to transfer Pokémon from Generation V to Generation VI via Pokémon Bank made it seem unlikely that this trend would stop, meaning that the ability to catch all non-event Pokémon in the Hoenn remakes came as quite a surprise to many players.[[/note]] Given the fact that there are now over 700 Pokémon in the National Pokédex, this is a much-needed blessing.

** Not only is Sharpedo able, but it moves much faster than regular surfing Pokemon. A few NPCs even outright suggest doing this.
