You probably already saw our coverage regarding Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, so you likely know by now that there’s a special demo coming out soon. In this demo, not only can you see some new Mega Evolutions, but you’re also able to transfer any items you obtained in the demo into the full version. But we know you probably won’t be fully satisfied to see another person play through the demo, so you’re in luck, because we now know how you can get the demo to play through yourself!
To get a copy of the demo, you have to sign up for a Pokémon Trainer Club account and opt in to receive the marketing emails (in your account settings, check the box that says you’d like to receive emails) by October 20th. In the next Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter, there will be a special code that you can enter in the Nintendo eShop to download the Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire “Special Demo Version.” However, if you’ve signed up, opted in, and still don’t get the newsletter, make sure to check your spam folder!
The demo will be available in North America next week, while the full versions of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire launch one month later, on November 21st.
I certainly love demos in which you can transfer your progress—or in this case, the reward items you obtained—to the full version. What do you think about it? Are you going to download the demo, or is it too much of a hassle to sign up? Let us know in the comments below!
