Pokemon Alpha and Omega Demo


Hello my fellow nerds! If you're a Pokemon fanatic, you should be eagerly hopping about in your seat because Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby are due to release in just a little bit! 

I've recently downloaded the demo onto my 3DS, and the play through is pretty nice. The graphics are not bad, and Steven definitely got an upgrade because he looks ultra cool right now. So right, the demo. If you didn't manage to get a demo code, don't worry! I'm here to run you through what the demo has to offer! 

Starting right off, you don't get to pick your gender, as well as your name, since you will flying around with Steven from the very beginning (on both Latias and Latios!). Steven will brief you a little on what is about to happen, which mainly means going to the Space Center in Mossdeep city. 

Once you hit the Space Center, Team Magma will make an appearance running out of the Space Center, and initiate a battle. And because you don't have any Pokemon with you, Steven will give you one of your choice. 

Since it is Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby, the choice you have is one of the three starters, Torchic, Mudkip, and Treecko. After you make your choice, that chosen Pokemon will follow you on your first quest. 

I chose Mudkip, as usual, and no matter what you choose, it will always be at level 35. This means that you will pummel through Team Magma and Aqua like nobody's business. There are a total of ten official quests, and after completing a certain number of them, you will receive some goodies that you can transfer to an actual copy of the game. 

So the first quest requires you to hunt down Team Magma and Team Aqua, both of which are after a certain Pokemon which is able to mega evolve. This is relatively easy, given that your starter is of a higher level. Steven will pop in and help as well, so that really smooths things along. You will also meet your female counterpart, who spouts some stuff before disappearing and leaving you to defeat the two evil Teams on your own.

After completing the first quest, your Starter should have leveled up and evolved, which is why the starter was given to you at level 35.

The reward for completing the first quest is the Glalie which the teams were looking for. Steven will give you 5 Pokeballs, if I'm not wrong, and you'll have to catch the Glalie yourself. The Glalie is at level 40, which you can transfer to your copy of the game once you get it.

That's the end of the first quest, and Steven will bring back to Mossdeep. He'll then thank you, and the game will play a short cut scene, save, and bring you back to the starting screen.

Now remember I said there's 10 quests? The rest are quite fast. some quests require you to find a lost child/ Pokemon, some require you to complete a battle, and for some, Steven will ask you to find a specific Pokemon for him.

I'm not too sure if there's an order in which the quests will appear in, but in any case, from the second quest onward, you'll have the full evolution of the three starters as well as Galie in your party. The rewards you'll end up receiving are: Glalie, Pokeballs, Heal Balls, and Heart Scales. All of which you can transfer to your copy of the game.

What does Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby have to offer?

Pokémon Contests and customizable Secret Bases (now "Super Secret Bases") are now back, as well as the Mach Bike, the Acro Bike, and third-generation player characters Brendan and May. Some features from XY will be retained though, like the Horde Encounters and Mega evolutions, as well as the Pokemon Amie and Super Training. There are tons of new Mega Evolutions; the main three starters, Glalie, and Metagross, for example. Maga Glalie looks insane.

There is also Cosplay Pikachu! 

"This Pikachu gets a unique costume to wear during Contests; each costume comes with a specific, special move: Pikachu Rock Star gets Meteor Mash (Cool Contest); Pikachu, Ph.D gets Electric Terrain (Smart Contest); Pikachu Pop Star gets Draining Kiss (Cute Contest); Pikachu Belle gets Icicle Crash (Beauty Contest); Pikachu Libre gets Flying Press (Tough Contest)."

Whooooo I can't wait! I'm getting Omega Ruby later on so stay tuned for a "review" of sorts in a few days!
