Let’s be honest, reader: Mega Rayquaza being a ‘thing’ comes as no surprise, seeing as Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre have already been confirmed…it doesn’t make it any less exciting though! Yosha! Here it is, finally confirmed, it’s Mega Rayquaza! Fellow SnapThirty writer and friend Beau was right when he speculated about this particular evolution in a previous article and now he can brag about it until the cows come home.
This new evolution was confirmed through a huge Nintendo livestream focusing entirely on the upcoming Pokemon video game remakes ‘Omega Ruby’ and ‘Alpha Sapphire’. For the most part, the stream just featured gameplay footage of the things we’ve already seen about the game…but then came Mega Rayquaza. This bad boy (or girl), once Mega Evolved, gains the brand-new ability Delta Stream which brings about a weather effect that cancels out all other weather effects and makes it so flying types are no longer prone to the moves that they’d usually be weak against.
That’s not all though, not by a long shot; Mega Rayquaza also learns a new move called ‘Dragon Ascent’ which is being called the most powerful Flying-type move in the history of Pokemon. Something else that came as a point of interest to me is that Mega Rayquaza IS a Mega Evolution and not a Primal DEvolution like its friends Kyogre and Groudon. Rayquaza will Mega Evolve in an odd way that has yet to be detailed, though I’m sure we’ll find out very soon. We’re now only two months away from the official worldwide release of the game on the 21st of November (28th in Europe…sorry, Euro gamers) and anticipation could not be higher! Let the trumpets sound as we fly back in time, revisiting old friends, re-battling old enemies and reliving one hell of an awesome adventure!
