Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire will include a StreetPass-powered Secret Base feature.


In Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, Secret Bases are customisable areas in which players can set up their own Pokemon Gyms complete with custom battle rule sets, or build mazes and traps for visitors.

Gematsu reports you’ll be able to open your base to other players vis StreetPass – or QR codes for broader reach online.

Trainers who visit your secret Base become your “Secret Pals” – oh my god – and you can then interact with them to battle or draw on special skills like faster egg hatching or levelling. The more Secret Pals you have – oh my god – the more of these bonus you’ll be able to stack up.

As for what’s in it for visitors, you can collect flags while visiting other people’s Secret Bases, and these can be used to improve the bonuses offered by Secret Pals (oh my god).

Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire are due on 3DS in November.
