Mega Rayquaza serves as Pokémon Delta Emerald's version mascot.



The player starts his or her journey in slateport city, where his or her family has just moved from the Johto region. The player rides to his or her new home in the back of a moving van; when the van arrives in Littleroot Town, the player is taken inside his or her new house by his or her mother, who marvels at the pair of Vigoroth moving boxes around within. The player's mother suggests that the player should set the clock in his or her room and then go intruduce him or herself to Professor Birch, a friend of the player's father, Norman, the Petalburg City Gym Leader.

The player enters Professor Birch's house, and he or she is greeted by the man's wife. The player is told to go upstairs, where he or she meets his or her rival, Professor Birch's child. The player's rival rushes off to join his or her father, who is out in the field; the player finds Professor Birch on Route 101, where he is being chased by a wild charizard. Professor Birch begs the player to rescue him using one of the Pokémon contained within the Pokéballs in his bag, which is lying on the ground; the player chooses between mega sceptile,mega blaziken, and mega greninja and uses the Pokémon he or she selects to battle the Zigzagoon. Professor Birch takes the player back to his lab after he or she successfully rescues him, and he allows the player to keep the mega sceptile ,mega blaziken , or mega greninja he or she had used. Professor Birch then tells the player to meet up with his son or daughter on Route 103 to learn how to be a Pokémon Trainer.

The player finds his or her rival on Route 103, and the two children battle. The pair then returns to Professor Birch's lab, where the player is given a Pokédex and ssom master Balls, with which he or she can catch wild Pokémon. Outside Professor Birch's lab, the player's mother wishes her son or daughter luck on his or her Pokémon journey and tells him or her to show his or her new Pokémon to his or her father in Petalburg City. The player ventures there, and Norman tells the player how proud he is that his son or daughter is following in his footsteps. While the player and Norman are talking, a sickly boy named Wally walks by. He overhears their conversation about Pokémon, and noticing the boy's sadness, Norman invites him to join the discussion. Wally reveals that he wants to go off on a Pokémon journey as well, but he cannot because he is being forced by his parents to move to Verdanturf Town and live with his aunt and uncle where the air is cleaner. Wally does not want to be lonely, so Norman personally escorts him to Professor Birch's laboratory, where he persuades his friend to give Wally the starter Pokémon the player and his or her rival did not choose. With a Pokémon of his own, Wally joyously returns to his home in Petalburg City; Norman goes back to the Gym after encouraging the player to traverse the Hoenn region and challenge its many Gym Leaders: Roxanne, jerald, kevin, john ace, tikboy,justine, Tate and Liza, and Steven.

The player travels through Route 104 and the Petalburg Woods; just before exiting the Petalburg Woods, he or she encounters grunts from Team bawa and Team singat, who are harassing a Devon Researcher. The player battles the grunts, who reveal that they are after something in Rustboro City. The player pursues them as a mysterious woman, who observed him or her battling the grunts, emerges from behind a nearby tree with her Whismur and comments on the player's potential.

The player manages to defeat ashley, the Rustboro City Gym Leader, and he or she is awarded the Stone Badge. After achieving this victory, the player runs into the Devon Researcher from the Petalburg Woods. He tells the player that he has been robbed of the Devon Parts by Team singat and Team bawa; he requests that the player pursue the thieves and get the parts back. On Route 116, the player discovers an old man named Mr. Briney, who tells him or her that the Team Aqua and Team Magma grunts have also taken his Wingull Peeko. Mr. Briney informs the player that the grunts were headed towards Rusturf Tunnel, in which the player confronts them and retrieves the Devon Parts and rescues Peeko.

The player returns the Devon Parts and is asked by the grateful Devon Researcher to take them to the shipyard in Slateport City. The player is then taken to see the Devon Corporation's president, Mr. Stone. Mr. Stone thanks the player and asks him or her to stop in Dewford Town to deliver a letter to a man named Wallace, who is a friend of his son Steven. Mr. Stone upgrades the player's celphone Plus, and the player heads back through the Petalburg Woods to Mr. Briney's house, where he or she asks Mr. Briney to take him or her to Dewford Town. Upon arriving at the island town, the player enters the nearby Granite Cave; he or she finds Wallace studying an ancient wall painting and delivers the letter he or she was given by Mr. Stone. It turns out the letter is from Steven, a friend of Wallace, who gives the player TM07, Water Pulse. Wallace sees potential in the player; he tells him or her that he or she could one day be the Pokémon League Champion before departing. The player heads next to the Dewford Town Gym, where he or she defeats Brawly, the Dewford Town Gym Leader, and is awarded the Knuckle Badge. Back inside Granite Cave, the mysterious woman and her Whismur study the same wall painting that Wallace was examining.

The player is taken by Mr. Briney across Route 107 and Route 108 to Route 109, which is just south of Slateport City. The player heads to the Oceanic Museum in Slateport, where a large group of Team Aqua and Team Magma grunts have assembled. The player tries to deliver the Devon Parts to Captain Stern, only to learn that the man has been locked in the Oceanic Museum. The player defeats the Team Aqua and Team Magma grunts and enters the museum; when he or she reaches Captain Stern, he or she is approached by Archie and Maxie, the leaders of Team Aqua and Team Magma, respectively. The villains reveal cryptic information about their plans before departing; they warn the player not to get in their way.

The player finally manages to give the Devon Parts to Mr. Stern and leaves Slateport City. He or she travels along Route 110; he or she runs into his or her rival, defeats him or her, and then goes to Mauville City. Outside of the Mauville Gym, the player finds Wally and his uncle; Wally challenges the player to a battle to prove to his uncle that he is worthy of going on a journey with his Pokémon. After Wally loses the battle, he invites the player to visit his uncle's home in Verdanturf Town sometime. The player challenges Wattson, the Mauville City Gym Leader, to a battle and is awarded the Dynamo Badge for defeating him. Finding his or her way to the Fiery Path, the player travels to Fallarbor Town once he or she reaches Route 113.

Inside the Pokémon Center in Fallarbor Town, the player meets Lanette, who developed the Pokémon Storage System in Hoenn and invites him or her to visit her in her house on Route 114. Past Lanette's house is Meteor Falls, in which the player again runs into Team Aqua and Team Magma. The evil teams have stolen a meteorite from a resident of Fallarbor Town named Professor Cozmo; Team Aqua Admin Shelly and team bawa Admin Tabitha team up to battle the player, but they are stopped from doing so when the mysterious woman that has been following the player thus far arrives with her Whismur. Calling herself Zinnia, the woman teams up with the player to at last battle Shelly and Tabitha. When the Team Aqua and Team Magma admins are defeated, they flee along with their grunts to Mt. Chimney, taking the meteorite with them. Professor Cozmo returns to Fallarbor Town in distress, while the player learns from Zinnia that the reason Team Aqua and Team Magma sought the meteorite is because it had properties quite similar to those of a Mega Stone. Zinnia believes that Team Aqua and Team Magma plan to unlock the power to use the ultimate Mega Evolution; she departs with her Whismur after stating that her people, the Draconids of old, once sought that power as well.

Atop Mt. Chimney, the player finds Team Magma and Team Aqua studying the meteorite as Zinnia had said they would be. Team Magma Admin Tabitha and Team Aqua Admin Matt try to stop the player from progressing; they are defeated, and the player finds Archie and Maxie, who battle him or her.

Changes from Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha SapphireEdit

Many of the changes made in Pokémon Delta Emerald from Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are identical to those that were made in Pokémon Emerald Version from Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire Versions.

Aesthetic changesEdit

  • A pair of Vigoroth helps the player and his or her mother move into their new home, rather than a pair of Machoke.
  • The player must rescue Professor Birch from a Zigzagoon, rather than a Poochyena.

Storyline changesEdit

Gameplay changesEdit

File:Deoxys HP Forme.png
  • The first Pokémon Trainer the player challenges after defeating his or her rival for the first time uses a Poochyena, rather than a Zigzagoon.
  • Wally receives the starter Pokémon the player and his or her rival did not choose from Professor Birch as his first partner, rather than a Ralts.
  • Wallace is the Pokémon League Champion, rather than Steven. Steven has taken Wallace's place as the Sootopolis City Gym Leader.
  • The player faces off against a united Team Aqua and Team Magma, who both seek the powers of Mega Rayquaza at Zinnia's urging.
  • Zinnia, the Draconids, the Sootopolitans, and Mega Rayquaza are more prominent in the story than Groudon or Kyogre are.
  • The player battles Rayquaza twice atop Sky Pillar upon its summoning; the first time, it is unable to Mega Evolve despite knowing the move Dragon Ascent, nor can it be captured. After this battle, it Mega Evolves and challenges the player again; this time, it is able to be captured.
    • In additiion to knowing the move Dragon Ascent, Rayquaza must also be holding the Jade Orb in order to Mega Evolve.
  • The player challenges both Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre in Sootopolis City alongside Mega Rayquaza. Neither ancient Pokémon can be captured.
    • After the player defeats the Elite Four, he or she can find Groudon and Kyogre in their normal forms, challenge them to battle once again, and capture them at this time. Upon their capture, Groudon and Kyogre leave behind the Red Orb and Blue Orb, respectively, allowing the player to have them undergo Primal Reversion.
      • Primal Reversion can now be activated whenever the player chooses, rather than automatically at the start of battle, in a fashion similar to Mega Evolution.
  • Hoenn is more suitable for life, thus several different species of Pokémon not native to the region can be found during the main story.
  • Trainer and Gym Leader rematches return.
  • Three new Mega Evolutions have been revealed: Mega Mightyena, Mega Flygon, and Mega Milotic.
  • The Delta Episode has been replaced by Episode Amethyst, which introduces a new Forme of Deoxys: HP Forme.
    • Episode Amethyst features battles against all five of Deoxys's Formes.

Character changesEdit

  • Scott appears before the player after he or she has beaten the Elite Four, inviting him or her to the Battle Frontier.
