Yo Dawg, I Heard You Wanted Some More Animal Crossing in Your Pokemon

pokemon-omega-ruby-alpha-sapphire-gameplay-boy-and-girl-players-screenshot-3dsIn an ongoing effort to make Pokemon the only game franchise you’ll ever need, Nintendo and GameFreak recently confirmedsecret bases” in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. These hidden forts are very reminiscent of the homes from Animal Crossing. Prepare your body and mind for maximum customization.

The addition of customizable clothing and accessories in Pokemon X/Y was a welcomed addition to the series and these secret bases are taking that idea to a completely new level. Players can now collect in-game pieces of furniture and lighting which can be used to trick out their secret cribs. Friends can even visit each others secret bases via QR codes and share decorating tips. Forget about collecting all the Pokemon. It’s time to grind for furniture!

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m absolutely in love with this concept. I love the repetition and simplicity of Animal Crossing, but I love Pokemon far more, so combining these two worlds is really a match made in heaven.

Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are scheduled to release on November 21st for 3DS in North America and November 28th in Europe.

  1. I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS! XD SOOOO EXCITED!!! I’ll be doing a similar post later on what I think of this Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald were my favorite Pokémon games


    1. Dude! This news has got me so pumped up! I was already super hyped for this release, but now I don’t even have the right words to express my emotions. Pokemon Crossing all the way!!!

      1. Most of my type will be spent making my base look amazing the reorganizing it over and over! and I remember where my previous base was in Sapphire. You need Surf and a Mach Bike to get to it lol!
