Soaring

(Redirected from Soar)

Soaring is a feature introduced in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire which has been simulated and integrated into Pokémon Insurgence. Soaring allows the player to enter a 3D rendering of the maps of both the Torren and Holon regions where they can move around through the sky and discover various Pokémon and new locations. It is only accessible by completing the PikaTaxi guy's quest and upgrading the PikaTaxi to the EmolgaTaxi. As the player cannot use Fly in the Holon region, Soaring remains the only method of fast travel that the player can use while in the region.

Mechanics

Soaring can first be accessed after completing the PikaTaxi guy's quest and upgrading the PikaTaxi to the EmolgaTaxi. After speaking to him when these requirements have been met, the player is given the option to Soar or Fly.

While soaring, several wild Flying-type Pokémon may be encountered, as well as new locations that are otherwise inaccessible by exploring the region on foot. Players may also freely travel to any previously visited location, much in the same way as flying.

Pressing Q and W rotates the camera angle while pressing T and Y zooms the camera out and in respectively.

Landing

As the player passes over locations that are marked on the Torren map, they may interact with their cursor over a Pokémon Center or other similar feature of significance to land in that location. This works in the same way and with the same restrictions as Fly does outside of battle. Mainly, this means that a location must have been visited on the ground before the player can land. In a few cases, a certain location must be visited before another can be visited.

Dev Island

Main article: Dev Island

This island acts as the final challenge for the player. On this island, the player will be able to engage in battle nine of the trainers responsible for the development and creation of Pokémon Insurgence. Be warned that these battles, though they can be accessed after obtaining Rock Climb, should not be attempted until the player has at minimum completed the Elite Four rematches, as the levels of the Pokémon used by each developer are higher than any others encountered during normal gameplay. A special reward awaits those who are able to defeat all nine developers.

Pokémon

Note that unless stated otherwise, all Pokémon levels scale with respect to the player's party Pokémon similarly to Rock Smash.
