It has been confirmed that Secret Bases have returned to Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, now known as Super-Secret Bases. As before, Secret Bases are created by using the move Secret Power on various parts of the Hoenn region including on walls and in trees. You can even set battle rules in your Secret Base. Players will be able to share their Secret Base with other Trainers around the world using StreetPass functionality, or they can create a QR Code for their unique Secret Base, enabling friends to visit it with ease. When visiting other Secret Bases, players can meet other Trainers in the same base and invite them back to their own Secret Base as Secret Pals. Players can interact and battle with Secret Pals, who have special skills that can support players in their adventures, such as sharing new Decorations, making a Pokémon Egg hatch faster, or raising the level of a select Pokémon by one. The more Secret Pals players have in their Secret Base, the more special skills will be available to help them in their adventures. Players can also capture flags while visiting other players’ Secret Bases. Flags are located beside the Secret PC in each Secret Base. The more flags a player collects, the higher the rank earned, which brings rewards like improving the skills of a player’s Secret Pals. A new character called Aarune has been revealed for this, and he is the Secret Base Expert. He currently resides in Hoenn, but is a world traveler, and has a Flygon

Pokémon X & Y - Minimum PokéBall Levels

Last year, I created a new game mechanic section which allowed for checking of what the lowest level each Pokémon can be in each PokéBall. I have been gradually working on this but recently, there were numerous requests for an update so it is now live to cover all of Generation VI. As breeding now passes PokéBalls, there's a difference in that, for base evolutions, it will show both Level 1 and the lowest level that it can be if captured. However, as there's manual entry, there's a little margin for error, so if you spot anything, let me know. Click the image to go to the page

Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the first generation. It appears by waterways at dusk. It may use telekinetic powers if its forehead glows mysteriously. The forelegs are webbed, helping to make it an adept swimmer. It can be seen swimming elegantly in lakes, etc. The flippers of its well-developed limbs give it shocking speed.
