How the UK can get the Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire demo

For the first time ever, players can try out a demo for a Pokémon game, specifically the upcoming Gen 3 remakes Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire for the Nintendo 3DS. However, this isn’t like most demos that you can download from the eShop. Fortunately, we have the specific details on how residents of the UK can get the demo.

Those who pre-order the game from Amazon, Smyth Toys Superstores, ShopTo or the Nintendo UK Official Store will receive a special code they can redeem to get the code. Specific GAME stores will also be distributing the code via the Nintendo Zone. And if you happen to be going to the MCM London Comic-Con this weekend, you can nab a demo code from there, as well as many other Pokémon memorabilia.

If you’re wondering why you should get the demo, it’s not only so you can try out some of the lovely new features (including being able to ride either Latios and Latias across the region) but so you can get your hands on an exclusive Glalie that can Mega Evolve, which you can transfer over to the official game.


Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be released in the UK and the rest of Europe on November 28th.
