As they often do, CoroCoro magazine have brought us new details on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire in their latest issue. To begin with, a number of new Mega Evolutions have been revealed: Mega Lopunny, Mega Salamence, and Mega Altaria.

Above, you can see Mega Lopunny (pictured left) retains its Normal/Fighting-type, has the Scrappy ability, and can now use the High Jump Kick move. Mega Salamence (middle) is Dragon/Flying with the Aerilate ability, and Mega Altaria (right) is Dragon/Fairy with the Pixelate ability.

Below, you can see some new images and information on in-game contests. Pokémon will be able to Mega Evolve during contests, and players will be helped out by Contest Idol Lucia when they first get involved.

In the next scan below, you can see new images relating to the previously announced feature that lets you dress up Pikachu in various costumes. It seems each costume allows the electric mouse to learn a move it isn't normally capable of. So far, the following were listed: Pikachu Rock Star gets Meteor Mash; Pikachu Doctor gets Electric Terrain; Pikachu Pop Star gets Draining Kiss; Pikachu Belle gets Icicle Crash; and Pikachu Libre gets Flying Press.

And, finally, above (right) you can see a shiny version of Mega Metagross. It seems that a shiny Beldum holding its Mega Stone will be distributed to players who pre-order the game (at least in Japan). No details on how it will be made available were mentioned.

Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire will be hitting shelves across the globe on November 21st (28th in Europe) on Nintendo 3DS.
