Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire are Getting Eon Ticket StreetPass Functionality

Nintendo has confirmed that Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are getting Eon Ticket support via the 3DS’ StreetPass functionality.

Serial codes for the Eon Tickets will be given to Play! Pokemon organizers and StreetPass communities all over North America, and they will become active on November 21st, the same day as the game’s launch.

Getting an Eon Ticket will be very important for you as a Pokemon trainer, that is, unless you don’t want to venture to the Southern Islands and catch Latios or Latias. After you acquire Latios or Latias, you can use the soar ability and fly anywhere you wish in Hoenn.

Being able to soar will give you the ability to visit Mirage areas and encounter rare Pokemon like:

  • Ho’Oh
  • Lugia
  • Dialga
  • Palkia
  • Reshiram
  • Zekrom

If you’re one of the lucky players to get a serial code for an Eon Ticket, you can redeem this for a Mystery Gift at the menu, which unlocks a Wonder Card. The Wonder Card can be redeemed in game at a Pokemon Center to an attendant in blue uniform. This gets you the Eon Ticket.

If you’re lazy or typically avoid social areas, you can also bum an Eon Ticket off a friend who has already gotten one. You have to activate StreetPass within BuzzNav, which lights up an icon to let you know that you’ve received the Eon Ticket. After this, you still have to go speak to the same attendant to get your Eon Ticket.

Lastly, in preparation for the launch of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Cartoon Network is going to air a special four-hour long Pokemon animation feature on Saturday, November 8th, beginning at 12 PM PT, 3 PM ET. The beginning of the special comes with five episodes from Diamond and Pearl: Galactic Battles, Diamond and Pearl: Sinnoh League Victors, and finally Black and White: Rival Destinies, before the feature presentation, Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction, which you can expect at 2:30 PM, PT or 5:30 PM ET.

    I don’t like the sounds of this, sounds like I have to do stupid shit outside the game to get something in game that I likely want, or did I misinterpret this?

    I already missed out on Diancie, I don’t understand why they don’t distribute the major stuff like this over wifi. Leave just keep the instore promotion pokemon to shiny pokemon or regular pokemon with unique moves.

    Gotta catch ’em all but you can’t because you didn’t get the ticket from the thing

    I feel the same way as you, it pisses me off that things outside the game are necesary to complete the game. Then again there are so many things they got wrong with the last game, that I hope they at least attempt to adress with this one. The limited number of boxes for one, in my opinion forces the player to pay for that Pokebank whether they want to or not.

    Seriously. Oh y’know. It’s only THE ONLY THING NEW about this game, but if you don’t come to one of our pointless events, you don’t get in! Ridiculous. Just pack it in the box, or better yet… don’t! Just let us do what we want in game! Give away your unique pokemon skins/abilities, not stuff that’s actually important to your in-game activities.
