Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire arrives very soon, with the popular Game Boy Advance entries all set for a substantial remaster on the 3DS. Hype will no doubt build throughout November, of course, and The Pokémon Company is keen to push the excitement along with a special launch event focused on the Eon Ticket.
The Eon Ticket will be an important distribution, as it'll allow you to travel to the Southern Island and catch Latias or Latios, depending on your version of the game. You'll want to get hold of these 'mon and Mega Evolve them, too, as they can then fly you around the Hoenn region to reach Mirage areas with the Soar ability; these areas will allow you to catch rare Pokémon like the following:
Distribution details have been slow to arrive, though in Japan there will be an Event and a distribution through CoroCoro magazine, in addition to StreetPass opportunities. The Pokémon Company has now released details of a launch event in the UK through an official website, in which 15 lucky gamers will attend a London launch on 29th November, meet Junichi Masuda and then travel to one of 15 nationwide GAME stores to pass the Eon Ticket on — through StreetPass — to lucky fans.
Details of how to enter and be one of those 15 Trainers will emerge on 13th November at 3pm UK time. We're hoping that other countries and regions will announce similar plans in the coming days; would you like to embark on a real-life StreetPass adventure with an Eon Ticket?
