Every item within the index of X and Y, used and unused, remains in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, so see this page for details.
One of these items, the Mega Charm, has a new icon to match its role as May's special Contest Key Stone. However, it is still unobtainable in the Bag.
The Basement Key is also brought over from the original versions, but as the gate to New Mauville uses eye recognition software in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, it does not require a key for entry, and the item is thus unused.
Unobtainable Key Stones
Within the item index are various signature Key Stones. While they are used by certain trainers, they are unobtainable and have unused text for descriptions and plurals. Some of them also have icons.
The Key Stone would later be used for Mega Evolution in Pokémon Sun and Moon.
Unused Secret Base decorations
Describe and get pictures of the Registeel and Regirock Dolls.
Text file 115 contains the item plurals, but only a few of them are used. See the notes page with all names.

These strings were used in X and Y's quiz, What item do you use most often?.

These strings correspond to battles while riding Pokémon and Sky Battles, respectively. Neither of these features are in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
Trainer's Eyes entries
A few Trainer's Eyes entries go unused due to the removal of female Psychics and Triathletes.
|Trainer||Strategy||Favorite Pokémon||Trainer Message|
|Psychic Jacki||Battle at full power.||Pokémon of many mysteries.||When we "spoke," I was using my telepathy to communicate with you.|
|Triathlete Abigail||Defense is crucial.||My Pokémon are solid.||I began this as a way to lose weight, but it's so fun that I got sucked in.|
|Triathlete Katelyn||All-out offensive!||Water Pokémon rule!||I must swim over six miles every day!|
|Triathlete Maria||Speed above all!||I use speedy Pokémon.||A marathon is a challenge against your own self.|
Thousand Arrows and Thousand Waves
Screenshot of move details ingame, GIF of move
Thousand Arrows and Thousand Waves are moves unobtainable in Generation VI, confirmed in Generation VII to have been intended for Zygarde. They are physical Ground-type moves with 90 power, 100% accuracy, and 10 PP.
Eternal Flower Floette and Light of Ruin
Screenshot of move details ingame, GIF of move. Also add its shiny coloration. Also, put the statistics on Light of Ruin and Floette in a table of some sort.
Eternal Flower Floette's Base Stats are as follows - HP: 74 Attack: 65 Defense: 67 Special Attack: 125 Special Defense: 128 Speed: 92
AZ's Floette, known as the Eternal Flower Floette, is briefly seen in a cutscene during the ending of X and Y, but is not obtainable by any normal means, nor has it been distributed in any event. Despite apparently existing only for a cutscene, there were clearly initial plans for it to be a special form of Floette to be obtained by the player in some way. This would most likely be through events.
Unlike normal Floette, Eternal Flower Floette cannot evolve into its next stage: It is also in the Undiscovered egg group, making it unable to be bred. This is akin to the Spiky-Eared Pichu in HeartGold and SoulSilver, which couldn't evolve into Pikachu.
It has higher stats than a normal Floette, its own unique cry, and has a unique signature move, Light of Ruin. Light of Ruin is a special Fairy-type move with 140 power, 90% accuracy, and 5 PP. It also deals 1/2 of the damage dealt to the user. This move has the highest base power out of all Fairy Type attacks, and could possibly be the most powerful Fairy attack in the game.
Eternal Flower Floette's Cry
Unused Trainer Classes
All trainer classes from X & Y exist in the game's code along with the encounter graphics, but only a few of them are used for the Battle Maison. Four trainer classes with no names also exist. Their IDs are 0x90, 0xA2, 0xAC and 0xBF.
Unused Player Contest Portraits
These full body versions of costume portraits are never seen during contests.
Unreleased Hidden Abilities
In the Generation VI games, it is possible to find Pokémon with special "hidden Abilities". However, some Pokémon can not be obtained with their hidden Abilities through any legitimate means, rendering the hidden Abilities unused in normal gameplay.
|Pokémon||Regular Ability||Hidden Ability|
|Heatran||Flash Fire||Flame Body|
In the Generation VII games, Raikou, Entei, and Suicune's Hidden Abilities were all changed to Inner Focus.
Unobtainable Shiny Pokémon
For the sake of consistency, every Pokémon in every Pokémon game is given a Shiny variant. Most Shiny Pokémon have been obtainable through random chance encounters or event distributions, including most Legendary Pokémon. However, a few Pokémon cannot be obtained in this form without hacking, and as a consequence, normal players would never be able to see their Shiny coloration.
- Zygarde - This Legendary Pokémon from Kalos cannot be caught at all in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, and therefore its Shiny variant remains unseen.
- A Shiny Xerneas and Yveltal were distributed to the Generation VI games during an event, and can be legitimately obtained in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.
- Shiny Zygarde would later be obtainable in Generation VII games as part of an event distribution.
- Hoopa, Volcanion – These Mythical Pokémon were only obtainable through special distributions via Mystery Gift. Pokémon obtained from Mystery Gift cannot be Shiny unless distributed as such, and no distributions of these Pokemon in their Shiny forms were ever planned. The Shiny variant of Diancie, the first Mythical Pokémon of Generation VI, was distributed in Japanese Pokémon Centers as part of a special Mega Evolution promotion.
Get the Cosplay Pikachu renders.
- Cosplay Pikachu – Like the Spiky-Eared Pichu before it, the special contest Pikachu has a Shiny variation, but its personality value is fixed so it cannot be obtained.
- Kyogre, Groudon, Deoxys - Shiny versions of these Pokémon were available in previous games, but their encounters in this game are Shiny-locked. Therefore, their Shiny variants are only obtainable through the PokéTransporter, and they cannot be both Shiny and Generation VI native at the same time.
- Rayquaza's encounter is also Shiny-locked, but a Shiny Rayquaza was distributed to the Generation VI games during an event.
Event Super Training Missions

Other exclusive rewards, possibly different between missions
Several Super Training missions are hidden in the games' files and meant to be unlocked via Wondercards. All of these missions deal with battling against balloons of Mega Evolutions not seen in the Secret Super Training missions.
|Fearsome! Twin Tales of Jutting Jaws!||Mega Mawile|
|Danger Zipped Up Tight!||Mega Banette|
|Stuck between the Strong and the Strong!||Mega Scizor|
|Dazzling! A Dizzying Dance of Spoons!||Mega Alakazam|
|What an Upstart! Magikarp Is Moving Up!||Mega Gyarados|
|Watch It! Multiple Mega Evolutions!||Mewtwo, Mega Mewtwo X, Mega Mewtwo Y|
Completing these missions may reward the player with an Up-Grade or a Dubious Disc, both of which are not rewarded by any normal Super Training mission. Of note is that these missions give no EVs to the Pokémon, much like Secret Super Training missions, but completion sets bitflags 0-5 in byte 0x3A for the Pokémon.
Like the original games, Struggle has contest stats here: however, it is considered a Tough move instead of a Cool move. Again, Struggle can't be used in a contest without hacking.
As in Pokémon X and Y, a remix of the "Battle! VS Champion" theme from Red and Blue is included to be used in the finals of the Pokémon Video Game World Championships tournament. It is identical to the one in X and Y.
A very strange jingle with an unknown purpose. Interestingly, even though it sounds GBA-ish, it uses a soundfont unlike that used in Ruby and Sapphire.
As usual, the "PUSH START BUTTON" text was changed into "PRESS START" in the English versions.
As with Pokémon X and Y, version, a cover of "Happy Birthday to You" plays during the player's first visit to a Pokémon Center on their birthday; it is replaced with a music box version of the Pokémon Center theme on later trips. In international versions, because the Warner Music Group still nominally held the copyright to the song, only the latter theme is heard.
The Version 1.1 patch, released on November 25, 2014, fixed a small bug in the layout of the language selection screen.
The Version 1.2 patch, released on December 2, 2014, fixes a freezing issue that occurs during the ending movie that plays after entering the Hall of Fame.
This patch was released on April 2, 2015, alongside X and Y 's Version 1.4 patch. Both patches merely make minor unknown adjustments.
This patch was released on April 22, 2015, alongside X and Y 's Version 1.5 patch. Both patches merely make minor unknown adjustments.
