Secret Bases Are Back in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby

July 09th, 2014 | Category: Uncategorized

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire Omega Ruby Secret Bases

After being away from the series since Pokémon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, secret bases have returned for Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby.

In previous games, trainers could convert certain areas into secret bases, which could then be decorated with furniture, dolls or other trinkets. Other players could even visit these bases and do battle with that base’s owner.

Many of these features are coming back in the Gen III remakes and they’re being improved to take advantage of the 3DS’ wireless features.

Now, when trainers visit other secret bases, they can become Secret Pals with that base’s owner. Secret Pals can battle each other or help one another on their journeys by using “special skills.”

To help make secret bases easier to share with others, Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby lets you turn your base into a QR code that can be posted anywhere.
