Nintendo and The Pokémon Company International have announced that the Legendary Pokémon Latios can be discovered in Pokémon Omega Ruby, and Latias can be discovered in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire when the titles launch November 21 for the Nintendo 3DS. These high-flying Dragon- and Psychic-type Pokémon can Mega Evolve and fly freely through the skies of the Hoenn region. Trainers can hop on the back of their Mega Latios or Mega Latias and navigate the region through the air at high speed while performing midair tricks and hairpin turns. This brand-new method of travel, called Soar, provides access to Mirage spots, where rare Pokémon and valuable items may appear.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire players will be able to obtain the Eon Ticket later this year, granting them access to the Hoenn region's Southern Island where they can encounter and catch Latias in Pokémon Omega Ruby or Latios in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. This is the only way players can catch these Legendary Pokémon in-game.

Players can soon embark on a series of special Hoenn adventures by downloading the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version. The Special Demo Version gives players a glimpse of the adventure coming on November 21, including the chance to battle with Sceptile, Blaziken, or Swampert and seeing their Mega-Evolved forms in action! To obtain the demo, players first need to obtain a serial code and head to the Nintendo eShop on their Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS device to download the Special Demo Version.

Pokémon fans who have a Pokémon Trainer Club account and have opted to receive the Pokémon Trainer Club Newsletter will receive a serial code for the Special Demo Version when the newsletter is emailed to them on October 21. Get a Pokémon Trainer Club account at no cost at Pokemon.com by October 19 to receive the October 21 newsletter and Special Demo Version serial code.
