Seven Of The Most Useful Pokémon In Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire

Powerful Pokémon and cool Pokémon are important to have in any arsenal — but they’re not the only kinds of Pokémon you’ll use. Everyone needs Pokémon that are useful, to help you capture and train other Pokémon.

That’s where Utility Pokémon come in. Redditor Pekolachi remade a version of an infographic created by KaSlaps, and it’s something you’ll want to check out if you’re playing Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

There are seven kinds of utility Pokémon featured on the list. You’ve got Breloom, a Pokémon with the sorts of moves that can ensure the capture of any tricky Pokémon you’ve set your eyes on. You’ve got Sharpedo, whose speed and ability to learn moves like dive and waterfall make it an excellent candidate for your explorer/HM Pokémon. You’ve got the obligatory Ditto, which will help you breed anything with the best stats and moves. And, if you’re looking to make money, Smeargle is a good choice thanks to payday-enhancing moves. These are just a few of the ones featured in the image, which you should enlarge to see it in its full, explanatory glory:

Do you have any Pokémon that have proven themselves particularly useful for certain tasks in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire? Let us know in the comments. Personally, I think I’ll stick to the Eon Flute when it comes to flying around, since it makes the experience that much nicer, but that’s just me.


  • Surely Linoone rates a mention! It can learn so many field moves, including Dig (no need to buy Escape Ropes) and Surf (let a water pokemon take Dive and Waterfall), and the Pickup ability is handy for scoring Nuggets early in the game. It’s my one constant from the original Sapphire to this version.

  • I like the “or just go and capture a 6IV ditto” line
    You would have more chance asking for meth from an on duty officer at a police station

  • Linoone. Even if you only catch it for Dex data, thus little guy carries max revives, and sometimes even bestows them upon you so there is only some need to have a thief.
