Jonathan Higgins posted a article in NintendoLegendary PokÃ©mon are certainly plentiful in PokÃ©mon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, but obtaining some of them came with a catch. Depending on which version of the game you have, you obtain either Latios or Latias during regular story progression. The opposite Lati is then only available to you via the Eon Ticket Key Item, something locked behind a StreetPass component of the game. Up until now-ish, the only way to obtain an Eon Ticket for yourself was to pass by someone who had already gotten one via StreetPass. If you don't StreetPass very often, it makes obtaining your other Lati a pretty difficult process. On February 27th until March 2nd (that's only a single weekend, which is why I'm telling you about it now so you can act quickly), you'll be able to obtain the Eon Ticket in your game via Mystery Gift with a special code made available on PokÃ©mon dot com, similar to how they handled the Hidden Ability Unova Starters a while back. If February 27th already sounds familiar to you PokÃ©mon fans, it's because PokÃ©mon Bank is distributing special PokÃ©mon starting then as well! If you access PokÃ©mon Bank between February 27th and November 30th, you'll nab all three Johto starters with their Hidden Abilities. I'll let everyone know what the code is and remind you all of February 27th's importance when this week's Individual Values goes live. You're going to want to tune into this week's piece; I've got something special planned. Source: PokÃ©mon Official Site
WildCardCorsair posted a article in Industry NewsGood news everyone! Or, perhaps not. Pokemon.com shared some details on how players can obtain the Eon Ticket, the key item necessary for obtaining Latios and Latias in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire...and it's made some fans cringe. Apparently "the only way you can get the Eon Ticket right now" is to StreetPass other Pokemon players. The way it works is this: Certain ORAS players will be given the Eon Ticket to share via StreetPass, and others in the area will have to obtain it from them. As most 3DS owners know, StreetPass in the US is hardly the same as it is in Japan. So an already lower StreetPass encounter rate combined with the chance possible Eon Ticket holders can't/won't enable StreetPass for the title, or simply don't carry their 3DSs around much, are the cause for the current groaning over this announcement. Thankfully "right now" seems to give disgruntled players some hope, as the possibility for other forms of distribution down the line seems possible. But with new gameplay elements that require Latios or Latias to experience perhaps this wasn't the best way to distribute the the legendary duo at launch.
