Remember Pokémon: Destiny Deoxys? The seventh Pokémon movie showed a battle between the Hoenn Region's legendary Rayquaza and the form-shifting alien known as Deoxys. It looks as though Game Freak intends to rekindle that old rivalry, revealing that Deoxys will make an appearance in Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, and that a new piece of story content titled Episode Delta will feature Deoxys fighting Mega Rayquaza.

Below is a story summary and a new trailer.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire introduce a new story, the Delta Episode, which reveals the history of the Hoenn region and thrusts Trainers into a quest to save the world. The Mossdeep Space Center, a research facility for studying space and rocket science, discovers that a giant asteroid is hurtling toward the planet. Trainers must stop Team Magma and Team Aqua from attacking the facility. Meanéhile, a battle in space is brewing between the Sky High Pokémon Rayquaza and the DNA Pokémon Deoxys, a powerful Pokémon that can transform between four distinct Formes: Normal Forme, Attack Forme, Defense Forme, and Speed Forme. Rayquaza faces a fateful challenge that will determine the future of Hoenn. Helping Trainers restore peace to the Hoenn region are Sootopolis City's Gym Leader, Wallace, and the Hoenn region's Champion, Steven, both of whom hold secrets to stopping the asteroid. Trainers will also meet Zinnia, a mysterious girl rumored to possess the key to the fate of the world. Zinnia wears a Mega Anklet set with one of the mysterious Key Stones, which allows her Salamence to Mega Evolve.

In addition, more Legendary Pokémon were revealed to be found in Mirage Spots, including classics such as Suicune, Raikou, and Entei. There are some images from the most recent issue of CoroCoro, which showcase the Legendary ensemble, as well as the new character Zinnia (Higana in the Japanese version) and her Whismur.
