Ever since Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire were released last year, demands for new patches for improvements have kept pouring in.  A recent new Patch update to Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, known as Patch 1.4, has attempted to give Pokemon fans what they have asked for with the sixth generation of the Pokemon series, but they still want more.  Many are awaiting the Pokemon Z release date, as well as some mega evolution to Flygon. 

Pokemon Z isn't really the official title of the expected new release of the game, but it is a long awaited sequel to Pokemon X and Y, and it is just easier to call it that.  Considering that E3 2015 (the Electronic Entertainment Expo, which takes place annually every summer in LA) is almost here, it is possible that Nintendo could announce a release date of Pokemon Z at the big event. 

To that, iDigitalTimes says is a big fat "no".  Nintendo does not have a good track record of announcing anything Pokemon related at E3.  In fact, there has never been an E3 where a new Pokemon game was announced. 

So that is that.  Chances are, Nintendo will probably focus on the Wii U and 3DS as well as upgrades for their current cash cows like Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Brothers.  Maybe there will be a word or two on The Legend of Zelda and Starfox updates as well. 

One update that is happening now is a Patch for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.  In fact, this has already happened as the patch was available on April 23, 2015.  According to Youth Health Mag, Patch 1.4 gives players several online features and aims to bring new challenges for the games. 

With the patch, players can use the Wonder Trade option, connection to the Global Trade Station, redemption of Mystery Gifts, use of the Game Sync feature as well as using the Player Search System in order to connect to other fans. 

One change that a lot of Pokemon fans are demanding is the mega evolution of Flygon, a Pokemon used by a key character in the game.  Unfortunately, word is that Flygon's mega evolution might not happen during this update since developers are still working on the Pokemon's mega evolved design.  The Venture Capital Post has confirmed that a mega Flygon will be making an appearance in the seventh generation of the franchise, but there has been no definite release date. 

Hopefully, this seventh generation of Pokemon, or even Pokemon Z, will have a release date that will happen this year.  Should that happen, it will probably not be announced at E3, but the latest incarnation will hopefully show up before the holiday season.
