Even after three months of being released, “Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire” is still a remake that’s worth visiting. The developer has recently released a look back at The Battle Resort and why a visit is worth it for gamers' Pokemon in terms of battle skills and new moves.

Something worth doing in Battle Resort is to visit the Battle Maison, which is located at the top of the island. Those who have played “Pokemon X and Y” should be familiar with this place, as it is making a return to the Hoenn remake. At the Battle Maison, players can have a fight with Trainers to get Battle Points. They can participate in five different kinds of battles, including Single, Double, Triple, Rotation and Multi Battles. After winning 20 in a row for a particular format, players have a chance to go on a Super challenge version for bigger amounts of Battle Points.

These Battle Points are not just for show. According to the official “Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire” website, these Battle Points can be used to get items at the Exchange Service Corner. Afterwards, players can train their Pokemon in the nearby shops so they can keep battling in Battle Maison.

“Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire” fans who have joined the Battle of Hoenn Competition last January can now expect the entry gift to debut in their game. Trusted Pokemon source Serebii reports that the gift, which is a level 10 Tyrunt with Sturdy Hidden Ability, is available for redeemption.

All gamers need to do is go to Global Link and wait for the special page that will pop up. Only eligible players will get the pop-up message, and from there, they will get a serial code to redeem the Mystery Gift on “Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.” According to the source, the code will only work until April 30, so best to redeem it early on.

Another event that’s now available in the U.S. is the Samurott, which follows the two other events previously released. Since gamers now have the special Serperior and Emboar, the Samurott, which boasts the Shell Armour hidden ability, is also coming for download in the U.S.

Attack of the Fanboy reports that the third Unova starter will also feature a few moves, which players can own at Level 50. What gamers need to do to obtain it is follow the same steps for the previous two Pokemon. Choose “Mystery Gift” in the game once they turn it on (don’t start the actual game), then click on “Receive Gift” and then “Get With Code.” When done, enter “pokemon503,” which is the code for Samurott and wait for their new starter in “Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.”
