ORAS are remakes of them older games, Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire from way back in 2003 or something! Set in Hoenn you take on the dastardly Team Magma or Aqua (depending on version) to stop them doing evil, illogical things.
What does ORAS MEAN?!
ORAS means Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire you dum dum.

They got some crazy Primal Evolutions, it's like Mega Evolution but reversed but for some reason that still makes them more powerful.
