During your adventure, you'll be able to create your very own Secret Base. Work on making a space that's all your own, just the way you like it. But that's not even the best part! Using communication features, you'll be able to easily connect with other players all around the world to share your Secret Bases with one another.
When you think of Pokémon communication features, you may think of Link Battles and Link Trades. But in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, you can also make your own Secret Base and share it with others using communication features! More than that, you can collect your own Secret Pals.
When you visit another player's Secret Base, that base's members will be hanging out there. There you can talk to them or even battle them. If you find base owners that you like, you can scout them as one of your Secret Pals, and bring them back to your own Secret Base. Once you've become Secret Pals with someone, you can continue to have Pokémon battles against them, and also have your Pal use "special skills" to support you on your adventure. Enjoy the Secret Base life together!
Examine the flag beside the Secret PC in another player's Secret Base to obtain it! You can take one flag per day from each base visited. Visit lots of Secret Bases and collect lots of flags to improve your team's rank and get rewards, including increasing the skills of your Secret Pals. Flag colors change based on a team's rank, so you can tell another team's rank at a glance—and others can tell yours!
