It features all 386 known Pokémon as of the Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald era. The game feature a first for the Pokémon series, a true 3D role-playing game mode that allows the player to capture Pokémon that cannot be captured in Ruby and Sapphire, allowing them to eventually be transferred into said games. This includes Legendary Pokémon such as Ho-oh. There is a rumor that Celebi may be obtainable in the game, but it only makes a couple of non-obtainable appearances in the game.

This new RPG takes place in the arid Orre region, and features new Shadow Pokémon and a brand new criminal organization, Team Cipher. They are similar in some respects to Team Rocket of previous games. This team is attempting to turn all Pokémon into evil Shadow Pokémon by closing their hearts off, and it is the player's job to stop them. In another twist to the Pokémon series, this is be the first game ever where other Trainers' Pokémon can be captured—or snagged, as they call it in this game. (This was a major point in the advertising.) However, snagging only applies to Shadow Pokémon, and the purpose of capturing the Shadow Pokémon is so that they can later be purified, changing them back into normal Pokémon.
