Two New Pokemon Trailers Show The Different Sides of Hoenn

The release of Pokemon Omega Ruby & Pokemon Alpha Sapphire is less than a month away, and The Pokemon Company is beginning to ramp up its marketing campaign. We already saw a lengthy, comprehensive video released yesterday, but today we’ve been treated to a pair of condensed trailers highlighting vastly different sides of Hoenn.

The first takes us through the region’s sprawling fields and re-imagined cities, giving players an exciting glimpse at Hoenn’s new look as well as several new features in the pair of games. All the charm and appeal of Pokemon is present here, and it’s perfect for building hype.

The second, however, sets a darker tone, taking players into the depths of Hoenn as we encounter Groudon and Kyogre along with the respective leaders of rival organizations Team Aqua and Team Magma. This trailer trades the exciting feelings of adventure of the first for an altogether more epic package, giving players a tantalizing taste of the journey ahead.

Pokemon Omega Ruby & Pokemon Alpha Sapphire are due for release worldwide on November 21, 2014. Check out both new trailers below:
