How To Get Zekrom In Pokemon Omega Ruby

If you’re a fan of the legendary Pokémon Zekrom and you’re playing Pokémon Omega Ruby, you’re in luck! Despite being from the Unova region, Zekrom can be caught in your Hoenn adventure. In this blog post, we’ll outline the steps you need to take to add this powerful Dragon/Electric type Pokémon to your team.


Before you can catch Zekrom, you’ll need to complete a few tasks in the game:

  1. Beat the Elite Four and become the Pokémon League Champion.
  2. Upgrade your Pokédex to the National Pokédex by speaking with Professor Birch after capturing or defeating Groudon.
  3. Obtain the Eon Flute by completing the Primal Groudon story event.

Find the Mirage Spot

Zekrom can be found in a Mirage Spot, which are special areas accessible through soaring on Latios or Latias using the Eon Flute. Follow these steps to find the Mirage Spot:

  1. Use the Eon Flute to soar in the sky.
  2. Fly around the map until you find a Mirage Spot with a dark cloud above it. This is the location where you can encounter Zekrom. Note that Mirage Spots change daily, so you might need to try again on a different day if it’s not initially available.
  3. Land on the Mirage Spot and enter the cave or portal.

Catch Zekrom

Once inside the cave or portal, you’re almost there! Use these tips to ensure a successful capture:

  • Save your game before starting the encounter, in case you accidentally faint Zekrom or run out of Poké Balls.
  • Bring a Pokémon with the ability to inflict paralysis or sleep to make it easier to catch Zekrom.
  • Lower Zekrom’s HP as much as possible without fainting it. Use moves like False Swipe to ensure you don’t deal too much damage.
  • Use Ultra Balls or Dusk Balls for a higher chance of success. If you have a Master Ball, you can use it to guarantee a capture.

With a bit of patience and persistence, you’ll have Zekrom as part of your Pokémon team in Omega Ruby! Enjoy using this legendary Pokémon, and remember to save your game after capturing it.

Trading for Zekrom

If you’re having trouble finding the Mirage Spot or catching Zekrom, you can also obtain it through trading with another player in Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, X, or Y. Utilize the Player Search System (PSS) or the Global Trade System (GTS) to search for trainers willing to trade their Zekrom.


Now you know how to get Zekrom in Pokémon Omega Ruby! Whether you catch it yourself or trade for it, this powerful Pokémon will be an incredible addition to your team. Good luck and happy hunting!
