Pokemon Omega Ruby Walkthrough and Guide by Paul (vhayste)
Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Pokemon Omega Ruby


Last Updated:

The PlayNav allows you to access the innovative features first introduced in Pokemon X/Y. Here you'll find the PSS (Player Search System), Pokemon-Amie, and Super Training menus.

Player Search System
Player Search System or PSS is featured in Pokemon X/Y which allows you to connect with other trainers playing either versions of the game. Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Pokemon Omega Ruby players can also connect with Pokemon X/Y players. You can connect with local players nearby or worldwide via the internet. Players must both activate PSS by tapping the icon on their 3DS systems. This feature will allow you to do more stuff aside from trading and battling pokemon.

Trade is a basic feature of PSS which allows players to exchange Pokemon locally (via infrared or wireless) or via the internet. Pokemon OR/AS players can still trade with their friends playing Pokemon X/Y directly once they (OR/AS players) have unlocked their PSS feature as part of the story after visiting petalburg City.

Holo Caster
The Holo Caster is a function that allows you to receive notifications like news about upcoming competitions about. Even when you aren't playing, you can put your system to sleep and activate SpotPass to receive the latest information.

Battle Spot
This PSS feature allows you use your internet connection to fight other trainers around the world. You can compete in Free Battles or take on tougher challenges in Ranked/ Rating Battles. The latter allows you accumulate scores for winning which will also be posted in your profile on the Pokemon Global Link. This feature also includes penalties for disconnecting. If a player disconnects from a battle, a loss will be recorded in his/her profile.

Global Trade Station
The GTS or Global Trade Station returns in Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Pokemon Omega Ruby. The GTS is where you can choose a Pokemon put up for trade and select what Pokemon you want in return. If a matching trainer is found anywhere, the trade will be completed. In the previous games, you can only recieve Pokemon that registered in your Pokedex. Similar to Pokemon X and Y, you can still receive a new Pokemon that’s not yet registered or seen in your Pokedex.

Wonder Trade
This is another form of trading available in PSS which will allow you to instantly trade a pokemon of your choice to another pokemon offered by another trainer around the world. The catch of this feature is that you won’t know what pokemon you’ll get until the trade is already taking place.

These are special powers that will help you in your adventure. Some O-Powers temporarily boost your stats, increase your chances in capturing pokemon and even increase the experience points and prize money you get from winning battles. You can share your O-powers to your friends locally or over the internet. To learn more about O-Powers, follow this page.

The shout-out function allows you to broadcast a message that will be displayed to other players nearby or over the internet. The game will allow you to create your own message by using the touchscreen as keyboard.

You can trade shortly after talking to Norman and helping Wally. About 30 minutes into the game if you go straight there.
