Yes, this time around, you have to beat the Elite Four and Champion that’s now meaner and stronger! Professor Birch will be calling you after you leave your house in Littleroot Town. He is being attacked by his wife, whom he mistook as a wild Pokémon, and so he’ll ask you to pick a Sinnoh Starter from his bag.
3. Grab the S.S. Ticket and Board the S.S. Tidal
After beating the Elite Four and finishing the Delta Episode, you’ll be back in Littleroot Town once again. There, your father will talk to you saying that a gift for you from Mr. Briney has arrived. The gift is none other than—the S.S. Ticket! It’s a ferry ticket that will allow you to board the luxurious S.S. Tidal, which can be found in Lilycove City and Slateport City.
Inside the S.S. Tidal, more battles and items await! It’s also the gateway to new places such as the Southern Island and the Battle Resort.
4. Head to the Battle Resort
After getting the S.S. Ticket and boarding the S.S. Tidal, you’ll finally be able to go to the Battle Resort! At the Battle Resort, you’ll get the chance to engage in more challenging battles through the Battle Maison, get more special items and mega stones, and learn new moves from the Move Tutors.
5. Get Your Free “Sharpedo” and “Camerupt”
To claim your free Sharpedo and Camerupt, go to one of the beach houses at the Battle Resort. In one of the beach houses, you will encounter two grunts (one from Team Aqua and one from Team Magma).
Apparently, the two grunts have decided to live with one another. Thereafter, some other grunts come to tell both about everything that had happened. The next time you visit, both grunts will tell you about their plans of reforming their respective teams. After everything is said and done, the Team Aqua Grunt and Team Magma Grunt will give you Sharpedo and Camerupt, respectively.
6. Engage in Battles at the Battle Maison
Making its way from X & Y versions, the Battle Maison comes once again to give you some more thrill through exciting battles!

Every time you win, you get BP (Battle Points), which you can trade for awesome prizes. Plus, every battle becomes more and more challenging with you battling the leaders and participating in the “Super Battles” until you become the best trainer of all!

The Battle Institute isn’t just about sheer battling, you get ranked here based on your abilities and tactics! After the tests, you get awarded with a certificate that rates you as a battler and gives you BP and special items.
8. Get Both “Acro Bike” and “Mach Bike”
You heard that right! In Pokémon OR/AS, it is possible to get both the Mach Bike and Acro Bike. To get both, you have to advertise Rydel’s bikes throughout the region of Hoenn.
- Mach Bike – Show your Mach Bike to the Hex Maniac. She can be found north of the desert area on Route 111. Ride your Mach Bike up the dirt slope to reach her.

- Mach Bike/Acro Bike – Show either the Mach Bike or the Acro Bike to the Triathlete. He can be found at the southeast area of the beach at the Battle Resort.
After doing the above-mentioned tasks, return to Rydel in Mauville City and he will give you the other bike. Congratulations! Now you have both the Mach Bike and Acro Bike for you to ride freely throughout the Hoenn region. With both bikes at your disposal, you can now also access all the areas in the Safari Zone.

10. Get Togepi
Once you defeat/catch Primal Groudon/Kyogre, go to Lavaridge Town and talk to the old woman who’s standing near the hot springs. This time, she will give you an egg which will eventually hatch as a Togepi—an egg Pokémon!
11. Dare to Challenge the Tougher “Mega” Pokémon League
If you claimed victory from the Pokémon League once and completed the Delta Episode, now it’s time to have a rematch with the Elite Four and Champion again! This time around, they won’t be the same as before! The levels of the Pokémon are bumped to a higher notch and each trainer will now fight you with the power of Mega Evolution. How’s that for a challenge?
12. Complete Wattson’s New Mauville Sidequest
After defeating or catching Primal Groudon/Kyogre, you will find Mauville City's Gym Leader Wattson standining in front of the Square Tower on the 1st Floor of Mauville City. Then and there, he will invite you to his apartment at Mauville Hills where he will tell you about the issues of “New Mauville” and have you fulfill a task for him.

To put it simply, he’s the highest-level character you could ever face in the game. Defeat him and you become the best trainer in the entire Hoenn region!
16. Catch Regirock, Regice, and Registeel
Like the old Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald games, catching Regirock, Regice, and Registeel requires a few specific conditions to be met. Here are the conditions:
- Have a Relicanth on the first slot of your party.
- Have a Wailord on the last slot of your party.
- Have the moves Surf, Dive, Dig, Fly, and Strength.
It might help to also learn Braille or have a guide (which you can easily find online) ready just in case.

Next, you have to talk to a certain girl in the house right of the Pokémon Center in Pacifidlog Town. She’ll tell you that you ned to have Regice hold either Casteliacone, Nevermelt Ice or a Snowball. Then, you have to give your Regice a nickname. And lastly, you have to go to the Island Cave north of Route 105. If all conditions are successfully met, Regigigas will challenge you to a battle then and there.
18. Catch Ho-oh or Lugia
To catch Ho-oh (Omega Ruby) or Lugia (Alpha Sapphire), you need to go to Sea Mauville (north of Route 108) to obtain the Scanner, which can found in the basement.

24. Competitively Compete in Pokémon Contests
The Pokémon Contests makes its comeback from the original Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald games. Now, it’s upgraded and overhauled for the better.

If your Pokémon wins a Master Rank Contest and becomes a Contest Star, it gains an appealing special effect that shows whenever you send it to battle.
25. Obtain the Gold Trainer Card
The Trainer Card changes color every time you accomplish something significant in the game. For OR/AS, the colors are bronze, silver, and gold, and you get the color that befits your accomplishments.

26. Obtain “Platinum Crowns” in All Routes

27. Participate in the Mauville Food Court Battles
It’s fun, appetizing, and fulfilling! The Food Court Battles makes a tasty comeback! Now that you’ve practically finished the game, why not participate in this unique kind of challenge.

Note: The Battles in the Mauville Food Court are available in Single, Double, and Triple Battles.
28. Decorate Your “Secret Base” to Your Heart’s Content!
If you can’t think of anything else to do, then why not go all out with decorating your Secret Base. Not only do you get satisfaction from designing the best Secret Base in the World, you also get to share it for the whole world to see! Also, obtaining all the furniture and decorations in the game is a challenge in itself!
29. Collect All TMs
Ever dreamt of seeing all the moves in the Pokémon games? Ever wondered how all moves look like? Well, now’s your chance!

Since when did berries become so many and abundant? There’s not just a few berries anymore—there’s a gazillion of them! Don’t believe me? Why not go around the Hoenn region and collect them all? Spread the berries and plant them throughout the world! Also, you can turn them into Pokéblocks and feed them to your Pokémon.

33. Push Your Luck at the Lottery Corner
Believe it or not, there’s a Lottery Corner at the 1st floor of the Department Store in Lilycove City. Every day, you can push your luck and win spectacular prizes. They say that if you get lucky enough, you might even win another Master Ball.
34. Reach Level 100
This is one of the most fulfilling things you can do in any Pokémon game—reaching Level 100! It’s tedious and time-consuming, but that’s what makes it all worthwhile. Level 100 is the highest level. It’s the proof that you and your Pokémon have bonded and became the best!
