I literally have not touched Omega Ruby since I left off. The first thing I did to prepare for it wasn't even in that game - I fired up Y again (and did some training for Pokémon I forgot about first) and bred a Jolly Synchronizer. I am not going through that again for Rayquaza. Deoxys I'll just beat and attempt again later. I also bought another year of Bank, but haven't done any of the transferring yet. That'll be done before I'm actually ready to catch him.
So I had some more air travel to get through. This time, fortunately, I actually did more than soft reset heh. I did a lot of travelling through the water routes I ignored before, which was kind of fun (game still has too much though). That included rediscovering the Sea Mauville, which I had completely forgotten existed. Shame I can't get Lugia in this game, though.
But most importantly, I did a lot of Episode Delta. I think. And man, Zinnia is just a massive creep. I'm totally more on her side of things than Steven's... But she comes across as a huge creep spying on you though. I also really don't like that they made Steven's character mindlessly follow the scientists... whose grand scheme appears to be something so dumb as "Hey remember that weapon that killed a ton of Pokémon? Let's make it again but instead fuel it by humans. Seems better right??" At least that's how I've interpreted it. We're getting the full story scattered through different conversations filling in each other's blanks, which doesn't seem like great storytelling in my opinion, so maybe I misinterpreted something... But at least the big picture is clear. Big meteor. Want warp away. (To the original Hoenn??? Sweet reference.) Big dragon. Summon instead.
Regardless, it's a much, much more interesting postgame than the Looker one from X and Y. Still doesn't make up for also cutting what I'd have really liked to have included (*coughcoughBattleFrontiercoughcough*), but it's something.
I left off about to go into Team Magma's base again. Guess that's why it didn't blow up the first time lol. Or maybe it won't at all so as to not punish those who missed the Master Ball like the originals... That was kind of harsh.

Oh, and I only passed one person who had Streetpass enabled for the game, but I didn't get an Eon Ticket from them. Little worried still my game did glitch and I might not get it again.
And! I caught my first shiny in Omega Ruby! Found a shiny Zubat in Granite Cave while coming out from getting Steelixite and the meteor shards.
