At this point, you’re probably well-versed in how Program Advances work; you put in the correct sequence of Battle Chips and execute some type of more powerful move! This time, there’s no more Zeta, Beta, Omega, or any of those classifications returning, although the moves themselves are coming back under new names. Let’s start out with all the moves that are replacing the Zeta Advances, which fall into the Giga category.
