This article lists the unused content of the Generation VI games Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire that has been discovered by data-mining the ROMs.



Although female Psychics and Triathletes are no longer found in Hoenn, there are unused Trainer's Eyes entries for them.

Trainer Location Strategy Favorite Pokémon Trainer Message
Triathlete Abigail Route 110 Defense is crucial. My Pokémon are solid. I began this as a way to lose weight, but it's so fun that I got sucked in.
Psychic Jacki Route 123 Battle at full power. Pokémon of many mysteries. When we "spoke," I was using my telepathy to communicate with you.
Triathlete Katelyn Route 128 All-out offensive! Water Pokémon rule! I must swim over six miles every day!
Triathlete Maria Route 117 Speed above all! I use speedy Pokémon. A marathon is a challenge against your own self.


The full-body variants of Brendan's and May's Contest outfits are never seen in-game but the files are in the ROMs. They are just in-game copies of the official artwork, however.

Eternal Floette

AZ's Eternal Floette is also present in these games.


Three unused moves exist in the data of the Generation VI games. No legally obtainable Pokémon can learn them, and no Pokémon were ever distributed knowing the move. Thousand Arrows and Thousand Waves can be learned by Zygarde in Pokémon Sun and Moon.

Unused dialogue

A lady in the Dewford Pokémon Center explains the hiragana/kanji setting in the Options menu in the Japanese version. As this option is not present in international versions, her dialogue is changed, leaving both the English translation of the Japanese dialogue and the Japanese version of the international dialogue unused.

Japanese dialogue
「ひらがな よりも 漢字 大好きな ガールの が 特別 サービスで 説明書を で あげるわ 『Xボタンで 設定を ぶと 文字モードを えることが できます ひらがなを べば メッセージが ひらがなに 漢字を べば メッセージが 漢字に あっというに 早変わり!』 あなたに 素敵な 漢字ライフが れますように……」
(unused) "Allow me, a girl who loves kanji more than hiragana, to provide the very special treat of reading the instructions for you. You can change the character display by pressing the X Button to choose the setting. If you select hiragana, messages will be displayed in hiragana. If you choose kanji, they'll be in kanji. The change will happen in a flash! May you enjoy a lovely kanji-filled life!"
International dialogue
"As long as you have Pokémon by your side, you can overcome language barriers and meet many different kinds of people."
(unused) 「ポケモンが そばに いてくれれば 言葉の を えて んな たちと ふれあうことが できるよね」
