Get A Free Latios Or Latias In Pokémon Omega Ruby Or Alpha Sapphire Today

Depending on what version of the recent Pokémon you played, either Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire, you got either a Latios or Latias during the storyline. Now's your chance to get the other one.

By booting up Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire today and going to Mystery Gift, Receive Gift, and then Get With Code and entering 2015LATIOSLATIAS (or POKEMON380381 if you’re in Europe) you will get a special ticket. You can pick up the ticket at any Pokémon Center, and then take it to your father, the gym leader in Petalburg Gym, and he will place you on a ferry to go to an island where you can battle and capture whichever Legendary Pokémon you don't already have.

If you're playing Omega Ruby, it will be Latias. If you're playing Alpha Sapphire, it will be Latios.

Test Chamber – The Free-To-Play Pokémon Shuffle

The Pokémon Company has embraced the free-to-play model with Pokémon Shuffle on 3DS, and we decided to take a look and see if the match-three puzzler is unnecessarily restrictive.

Jeff Cork, our resident match-three expert and genre super-fan, and I played the game for a few minutes. The gameplay is basically the same as Pokémon Battle Trozei, but there is a limit to how many rounds you can play consecutively. Similar to Candy Crush, if you run out of attempts you can either wait for more, or you can purchase jewels with real money to keep playing. Unlike Candy Crush however, every attempt – success or failure – costs you one of your lives. Even if you're successfully battling and catching Pokémon, you will hit the same wall as someone who is playing poorly.

You can check out some of the gameplay (and see how much the jewels cost) in the video below.

[Updated] Get Serperior, Emboar, and Samurott Free For Pokémon Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire

Update: All the special codes needed for grabbing Serperior, Emboar, and Samurott are out in the wild for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

To add the three Unova region Pokémon to your team, go to the Mystery Gift option in the main menu and enter POKEMON500 for Emboar, POKEMON497 for Serperior, and POKEMON503 for Samurott. The codes will be good until November 30, 2015 so you have some time to take care of business.

For our review of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, follow the link.

Original story:

The Pokémon Company is giving you a chance to add three new, special Pokémon to your collection. All you need to do is collect three codes during the designated periods and input them into Alpha Sapphire or Omega Ruby.

First up is grass type Pokémon Serperior. Head over to Pokemon.com now to get the code for this pocket monster. Once you have it, go to Mystery Gift in the main menu, and choose the option to use a code. Don’t worry that the code is too short, the game will auto-populate the remaining fields.

Next up is Emboar starting on January 29. Again, a code will be posted on Pokemon.com. Finally, you can get Samurott beginning on February 5. That code will appear in the February Trainer Club Newsletter.

All three of the codes for these fully evolved Pokémon Black and White starters are good through November 30, 2015. Don’t miss out on these, as they all come with their hidden abilities. For more, check out our review of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire And Super Mario Advance 2 Available On Wii U

The Pokémon Pinball sequel and Game Boy Advance Super Mario World port are now available on Wii U.

Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire is the sequel to the Game Boy's Pokémon Pinball. Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2 may have the world's most redundant name and contains a number of small changes from the original Super Nintendo game. The original Super Nintendo release of Super Mario World is also available on the Virtual Console.

You can check out trailers for the new re-releases below.

Our Take
It still confuses me that the standard Pokémon games are not available on Virtual Console on neither Wii, Wii U, or 3DS. I know the Pokémon pinball games have their fans, but I think there may be more fans of the original core Pokémon games.
