Transparent Nintendo 2DSes for Europe ⊟

Remember that prototype 3DS XL with transparent casing that Nintendo teased us with in an Iwata Asks session? That never actually released as an actual product, but the platform holder has made something similar with the 2DS for Europe, creating clear Red and Blue versions of the budget handheld.

Nintendo used to make a lot of these transparent systems for the Game Boy, GB Pocket, and GBA, but it’s been a while since the company has returned to this style (the New 3DS also has clear colored cover plate options). These 2DSes will release as standalone units in Europe on November 7, and as bundles with pre-installed copies of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire on November 28. Thanks to NintenDaan for the pics!

Following yesterdays official reveal of the various bits of Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire information, a new clear image has come out that showcases the various features of the Pokémon Global Link in the new games. The aesthetics of the Global Link remain the same, but there are new features including the ability to upload photos you take during Pokémon Contest, and the game keeping track of the popular places to build Super Secret Bases. It also shows that Rating Battle Season 7 will begin and be compatible simultaneously with both X & Y and Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire. This also gives a hint of an upcoming Battle Competition called the Trainer Pokémon Battle, though this could just be for the sake of the image. The Global Link also confirms that there will be several days of downtime ahead of the release of Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire.

The humps on its back have transformed into one large and very active volcano. Magma is constantly bubbling up from within its body. It has a deep hatred of water or any moisture, and has an explosive personality and a short temper. The volcano on its back erupts constantly in an effort to intimidate its foes.

When it Mega Evolves, its Ability changes to Sheer Force. It grows stronger, and any moves that can have additional effects will grow in power—but it’s important to keep in mind that they will no longer be able to trigger their additional effects! Most of its stats are uniformly raised, but its Speed does drop. Try to think of strategies based on the likelihood of being second to act in battle.

Plates emerge on Gallade’s arms, and the helmet and cape-like protrusions on its head and back give it a knightly appearance. When the situation demands, Mega Gallade can use its psychic power to reshape both arms into blades simultaneously, and fight using a dual-wielding style.

When it Mega Evolves, its Ability changes to Inner Focus, so it’s protected from flinching. Its Attack and Speed stats improve, making this a Pokémon likely to excel at first-strike strategies.

The fangs in Mega Sharpedo’s mouth have transformed, and the horns that have sprouted from its nose can be regrown countless times. The yellow patterns on its body are scars carved into it in battle. With explosive propulsion, it can exceed 125 mph in an instant.

When it Mega Evolves, all of its stats see a boost, and its already high Attack is whetted still further. In addition, Mega Sharpedo gains the Strong Jaw Ability, which raises the power of biting attacks. Have it learn moves that will take advantage of this aggressive Ability!

In the Hoenn region, there is a third legend whose name is spoken in the same breath as Groudon and Kyogre. That is the third Legendary Pokémon: Rayquaza.

A Pokémon said to have lived in the ozone layer for hundreds of millions of years, it looks like a shooting star as it flies through the night sky. According to legend, when Groudon and Kyogre clash, Rayquaza descends to the planet’s surface.

Wally is a Trainer who grows in the hope of catching up to you. This young man lives with his parents in Petalburg City. Shy, even meek, Wally speaks rarely and takes care to be polite. 

Wally’s partner Pokémon is Ralts, the first Pokémon he ever caught. With Ralts at his side, he will put his full effort into strengthening himself as a Trainer.

Wally becomes a Mega Evolution user, wearing a Mega Pendant that is outfitted with a Key Stone of his own.
