I am really happy to come to you today as we see the return of one of my favourite features in Ruby and Sapphire coming to the new remakes. From the original game my favourite feature was the secret bases, it was my own personal spot where I could decorate and enjoy my own time. This feature was easily the most enjoyable feature particularly if you had friends who could put there character into your game and challenge them to daily battles, particularly I had a great time with this feature in Emerald and it was one of the features that I really hoped would return for the remake.
Obviously from my rambling you can tell that this feature is returning and might I add better then ever. Once again you find a place to put your secret base and of course decorate it how you want, from here it goes even further. Decorations will be able to be used to create traps for those who enter, not to mention we will be able to choose battle rules for secret base to if you want make your own Pokémon Gym. Other players can also challenge you here.
The below information is from the official Pokémon Website:
Super-Secret Bases are an awesome new way to express your creativity and join up with friends in the upcoming Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire games. Create a Secret Base that’s all your own, including selecting and placing Decorations however you like. You can use Decorations to create tricks in your Secret Base, decide the rules for what kind of Pokémon battles are allowed there, and make it like your very own Pokémon Gym! Then get ready for other players to come and challenge you!
Using communication features, it’s easy to connect with other players around the world to share your Secret Bases with one another. When you visit another player’s Secret Base, that base’s members will be hanging out 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.
Another fun aspect of Super-Secret Bases is a capture-the-flag activity. 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 will change based on a team’s rank, so you can tell another team’s rank at a glance—and others can tell yours!
You can share your Super-Secret Base with Trainers all over the world! Symbolize your Secret Base with a QR Code. With a QR Code, you can get the Secret Base of a particular player you’ve been wanting to visit.

Aarune and his Flygon are world travelers, bursting with excitement about the Secret Base culture in the Hoenn region.
