Honestly not only is the story great, the Pokémon's great, and even the megas are great, just the sheer uprising in the community was insane. Now I dont know if it was better than Pokemon X and Y, but Ik this was insane. Also getting shiny Pokémon's was so easy lmaooo...

This game was one of the best games of the 3D Pokemon era. Although its the one I grew up with and first played, so I may be a bit biased...😅

Pros:

  • It had good graphics (for the time and console)
  • It really improved on Pokemon X and Y's system and feels like a successor to it.
  • It popularized the Mega Evolution mechanic
  • It had the same amazing story from the original Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire, but with modern tweaks and improvements too.
  • It also incorporated parts of Pokemon Emerald's story too with an incredible post-game.
  • The amount of Pokemon to catch after the climax of the game is absurd! Especially the legendaries and mythicals.
  • Great variety of traversal options in-game.
  • Superb re-playability features (Battle Resort, Eon Flute, DexNav)

Cons:

  • The game can pressure the player to grind a lot of the times.
  • Some fan-favourite features from the original were not in the game (Battle Frontier).
  • The difficulty of the game, while not as easy as Pokemon X and Y, is still a bit too unchallenging for veterans.

However, this game was one of the many favourite games of 2000s & 2010s kids and still holds a place in their hearts. It is an absolute necessity for Poke-fans to own.

The re-introduction of 'new' features like the Hidden Bases and Pokemon Contests will be welcomed by those who may not have encountered them the first time around, but X & Y veterans will see more steps taken back here than forward. ...It may not be the greatest Pokemon game, but it's still a strong one: as far as remakes go, this is more Clooney and Pitt in Ocean's Eleven than Nicolas Cage in The Wicker Man.

Overall, Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire seem very similar to Pokémon X & Y, as you might expect, but the story and the environments you encounter feel – despite the fact that they are remakes – very fresh and unique. They’re not an extensive upgrade from their other 3DS counterparts, but any Poké-fan who’s played one of the series remakes in the past knows that expecting an enormous upgrade is a fool’s errand.

As a 3D remake, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby do a fantastic job of reintroducing Hoenn. Little details, like characters turning their heads to look as you pass or flocks of Wingulls flying overhead, make the region really come to life, and small updates and tweaks help make the journey smoother. Still, a few of its flaws are even more glaring in 3D, especially the excess water Pokémon and often dull navigation of their habitats.
